Effective as of May 6, 2016 (Version 2)
WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED?
When a user visits our website, we may collect information about the visit that does not identify the user personally (“Non-Personally Identifiable Information” or “Non-PII”). For example, we may collect information such as referral data (e.g., the address of the last URL a user visited prior to clicking through to our website), the user’s IP address, the user's browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Safari, etc.) and the user’s operating system (e.g., Windows 7, Windows 8, Mac, Linux, etc.). We also may collect specific information regarding the user's session on our website. This includes items such as the date and time of the visit and the pages viewed by the user.
We generally request Personal Information when a user requests one of the following:
- To apply for a financial grant for fertility treatment from NEF;
- To make a donation to NEF either directly or via a third party processing vendor;
- To sign up for our mailing list;
- To correspond with us; and/or
- in other situations and in connection with other activities that we deem appropriate or necessary.
HOW IS THE INFORMATION USED?
Non- PII is collected to allow us to analyze how our website is used, improve the content and products and services our website provides, and improve the overall quality of a user’s experience on our website. To these ends, NEF may merge information about you into aggregated group data and other databases. In some cases, we may remove personal identifiers from Personal Information and maintain it in aggregate form that may later be combined with other information to generate anonymous, aggregated statistical information.
Personal Information is collected for the purposes described above.
NEF also may share your Personal Information with the NEF Parties in connection with credit card transactions, electronic fund transfers, payments by check or money order and online financial transactions. NEF hires third parties to provide credit card, bank, payment and information processing services. If you choose to make a donation to NEF online, by phone, through the mail or by other means we will share your applicable Personal Information with our processing service providers. We make an effort to require all third party service-providers to hold such Personal Information in strict confidence. While we believe these other companies will treat your Personal Information responsibly, we do not own or control them and cannot guarantee your privacy.
NEF will only disclose Personal Information in compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
ARE "COOKIES" USED ON THE WEBSITE?
DO-NOT-TRACK SIGNALS AND SIMILAR MECHANISMS
Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to our website, although web browsers incorporate and activate this functionality in different ways, and it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted. There currently is disagreement, including among participants in the leading Internet standards-setting organization, concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals. NEF currently does not take action in response to these signals, but, if and when a standard is established and accepted, we may reassess how to respond to these signals.
HOW IS PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION SAFEGUARDED?
NEF utilizes commercially reasonable methods and mechanisms such as layered security in our systems, locking devices and passwords to protect collected Personal Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. Access to such Personal Information is limited to the NEF Parties on a need-to-know basis as determined by NEF. Also, all online transactions conducted on our website are done on a secure server. This means that information entered on certain transactional pages of our website is encrypted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) before transmission. On such secure pages of our website, the website address in the address bar at the top of the browser screen starts with an "https" instead of an "http." Notwithstanding the above, although NEF has endeavored to create a secure and reliable website for users, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to or from our website cannot be guaranteed.
