Privacy

1. Introduction

Inner-City Scholarship Fund is strongly committed to protecting your privacy. We believe that maintaining your privacy on our Web site is very important, and that informing you about the types of information we collect and how we use it is crucial.

2. Types of Information Collected

We do not collect any personally identifiable information about you—such as your name and postal or e-mail address—except when you provide it to us. For example, we will ask you for personally identifiable information, such as your name, address and email address, upon your request to join our mailing list.

When you submit your personally identifiable information on our Web site, you are giving your consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. If you would prefer that we not collect any personally identifiable information from you, please do not provide us with any such information.

Our Web site does collect some anonymous "non-personally identifiable" information about visitors automatically when pages on our Web site are requested through a browser, which we maintain only in aggregate form. This information is used only in the aggregate for statistical purposes and to help us monitor generally how guests navigate our Web site, allowing us to tailor our services for the majority of visitors. Non-personally identifiable information may refer to information about our visitors' browsers (e.g., Netscape or Internet Explorer), operating systems (e.g., Windows or Macintosh), Internet Service Providers (e.g., AOL or NET.COM), and other similar information.

Our Web site also collects the IP addresses you connect to our Web site from as a component of the non-personally identifiable information. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by a Web server when you are connected to the Internet. This information is generally only used for non-user-specific purposes such as determining how many users visited a specific area of our Web site. However, we reserve the right to use such information to identify a user if we believe it is necessary in order to resolve safety and/or security issues or to comply with legal requirements.

3. How Information is Used

The information you provide may be used by us to create and deliver to you our e-mails, mailings, surveys or other communications concerning our organization. If you prefer not to receive such communications, please see Section 8 below.

We may use the information you provide in aggregate form for internal business purposes, such as generating statistics and developing marketing plans. We will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to third parties without your consent, except as disclosed in this Privacy Policy.

We do provide access to our mailing list of names and physical mailing addresses to like minded organizations and a variety of publications as part of our direct mail fundraising efforts.

Aggregate non-personally identifiable information concerning your use of this Web site, such as information regarding which of our pages are most popular, may be shared with or transferred to our affiliates, licensees and partners.

We may disclose any information, including personally identifiable information, we deem necessary, in our sole discretion, to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request.

4. Third Parties

We may retain other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include data analysis firms, customer support specialists, webhosting companies, telemarketing companies and fulfillment companies (e.g., companies that coordinate mailings). Such third parties may be provided with access to personally identifiable information needed to perform their functions.

5. Links to Other Sites

Users may find content on our Web site that links to the sites of our partners, sponsors or other third parties. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites. This Privacy Policy applies only to the information we collect on this Web site. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of other sites you link to from our Web site or otherwise visit.

6. Business Transfers

As we continue to develop, we may sell certain of our assets. In such transactions, user information, including personally identifiable information, generally is one of the transferred business assets, and by submitting your personal information on the Web site you agree that your data may be transferred to such parties in these circumstances.

7. Notification of Changes

Occasional changes may be made to this document as new services and content are added to our Web site or to reflect changes in our policies. If we decide to change our Privacy Policy, we will post the revised policy here. As we may make changes at any time without notifying you, we suggest that you periodically consult this Privacy Policy. Please note that our rights to use your personally identifiable information will be based on the Privacy Policy in effect at the time the information is used.

8. Choice/Opt-Out

When you complete a form or one of our surveys, you may opt-out of receiving e-mail communications from us.

You may remove your name from our physical or electronic address mailing list by calling 212.753.8583 or via e-mail at info@innercitynyc.org.

9. Acceptance of Terms

Your visit to our Web site is subject to this Privacy Policy. By using our Web site, you signify your acceptance of our Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy, please do not use our Web site. Your continued use of our Web site following the posting of changes to this Privacy Policy will indicate your acceptance of those changes.
