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.
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 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.

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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
