Our Use of Cookies
Many websites use cookies to provide useful features to their visitors by providing customizable and personalized services.

A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. For example, a Website may use cookies to store and sometimes track information about you, your preferences, or the pages you last visited.

Your browser software can be set to reject all cookies, or to ask you if you would like to accept or decline a cookie from a particular site before it is set. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject cookies in the Help section of the toolbar. You should know, however, that if you reject a cookie, certain functions and conveniences of a site may not work properly.

We do not use any cookies to store or collect personally identifiable information on our Website without your permission.

For example, a registration form might request your name, telephone number and e-mail address. You might also be asked to voluntarily provide a list of topics that you are interested in.

Our Children’s Privacy Policy
We are especially concerned about protecting children’s privacy. We hope parents and teachers are involved in children’s Internet explorations. It is particularly important for parents to guide their children when children are asked to provide personal information on line. Please report any inappropriate user content that you may discover.

Interactive Services and Tools
Interactive services and tools such polls or calculators, and other technology-based features provide Website users with a richer and more valuable experience.

Some 3rd party interactive tools may request identifying personal information in order to function. It is important for you to know how your information will be used when it is requested, for what purposes it may also be used, and if it will be shared with any other party.

Security of Communications
We recognize that many people are concerned about the privacy and protection of information as it is transmitted over the Internet. You should keep in mind that the possibility exists for unauthorized individuals to intercept any email message you send over the Internet. In some cases, information can be encrypted (scrambled or encoded) to make it very difficult to read if it is intercepted during communication. Certain technology and practices allow Websites to provide an increased level of security for your personal and health-related information when appropriate.

We use the following practices on our Website to enhance the level of security for communication and the transmission of personal information:

We use e-mail forms to allow our customers to ask questions about our services and programs. The possibility exists that unauthorized individuals may intercept e-mail messages, particularly if the form page URL does not begin with HTTPS:// rather than HTTP://

We are not responsible for the privacy of e-mail messages, forum or classified ad posts.

We have appropriate security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our sites.

E-Commerce, Online Donations, and Online Shopping
Purchasing items or making donations over the Internet usually requires you to provide your personally identifying information and credit card information on a Website. Many people have become accustomed to on-line commerce as a time-saving and useful convenience. There are some practices that can make providing your sensitive credit card information more secure and therefore make you feel more comfortable about doing so.

At this time, we do not process card credit payments for donations, merchandise, or services on our Website; transactions are sent to a secure third party commerce vendor.

Advertising Servers

Certain Websites have developed relationships with third-party advertising servers to display these advertisements on their sites.
