Privacy Statement:

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.

The Information We Collect:

Active Collection:
At this time, there are several areas on our ProKids website where you may be asked to enter personal information. Response to these inquiries is strictly voluntary and not required to access the website. We DO NOT sell or share any personal information about you to or with any person or organization, except as authorized by you or as may be required by law or court order.

When you come to the ProKids website to make a donation, you'll need to provide personal information, such as the amount of your donation, your name, and address. This information is used by ProKids primarily to allow ProKids to express its gratitude for your contribution, which may consist of the inclusion of your name in our Annual Report among other means. You do have the option to donate anonymously. We use the information you provide about someone else (name, address, and honor or occasion) when sending a recognition card. We do not share this information with outside parties.

In order to process a monetary donation, ProKids has partnered with a payment processing service provider. Any personal information collected during this process is not shared with anyone except ProKids and this payment processing service provider in order to securely process your transaction. Personal information, such as your name, address, email address, telephone number, and credit card information, is collected to process the transaction. This information is not shared with any other third party.

You may contact ProKids through the Contact Us feature, Snapshot inquiries, volunteering or various other means. Participation in these areas is completely voluntary and it is your choice whether or not you wish to disclose your personal information, such as your name, company, e-mail, and telephone number. We use return e-mail addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not shared with any third parties.

Passive Collection:
Whenever you access the ProKids website to read or download information, ProKids collects certain non-identifying information from you. This information includes the number assigned to your computer whenever you access the internet (your "IP address"), the name of the domain from which you access the Internet (i.e. Aol.com), the time and date you access our site, the web pages you accessed, and the Internet address of the website from which you linked to the ProKids website.

None of this non-personal information allows us to identify or contact you. We use this information to help us evaluate how our website is being used. By gathering this information, we can learn, among other things, how many people visit www.prokids.org, which ProKids pages are most and least popular, and which other websites are the most frequent referral sources for the ProKids website. We use this information to make our web pages more useful to our visitors. We may also use the information to direct general marketing strategies, but will not market to you individually.

The Way We Use Information:

Our website is used primarily to provide information about ProKids. Any information we request from visitors to our website is done on a purely voluntary basis. Disclosing personal information is not required to access the site.

Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online, via email or otherwise, except to our payment processing service provider.

Our Commitment to Data Security:

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard your information. In addition, we allow only authorized employees or agents access to personal information. Although we cannot guarantee there will be no unauthorized access to personal information, these measures increase the security and privacy of information traveling to, from, and within www.ProKids.org.

Links:

Our website contains links to other organizations and corporations who support ProKids. We therefore encourage you to be aware and to read the privacy statements of each of these other websites. This privacy statement only applies to the ProKids website.

How To Contact Us:
Should you have any questions or concerns about these privacy policies, please call us at 513-281-2000, or visit the Contact Us page.

Changes to This Privacy Notice:
The terms of this Privacy Notice may be changed periodically. Because we will post changes without notice, please check back here periodically. Your use of this website following any such change constitutes your agreement to follow and be bound by the terms as changed.
