Thank you for visiting the Jeannette Rankin Foundation website. 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 at our site. If you have any questions, we can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 706.548.0202.
The Information We Collect
You provide specific personal information during the event registration process on our site. The information includes: name, address, email address, telephone number, and payment. Note – credit card information is input at a payment site and not collected directly on our site; therefore, we collect no record of it. See our Security Statement below regarding the security of transmitting credit card information. We also collect name and e-mail address information from prospective applicants who are interested in receiving information about the National Scholar Grant and Emerge.
How We Use the Information
We use the information you provide about yourself to send you newsletters, accept your donation, complete your event registration, respond to your inquiries about your registration, produce a roster of participants, and to notify you about the status of the event. We will not sell or transfer personally identifiable information provided to us to parties outside of Jeannette Rankin Foundation , except as follows. We may disclose personal information in response to a legal process (e.g., in response to a court order or subpoena). We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency’s requests. And, finally, we may disclose personal information in response to a charge-back inquiry from our merchant bank about your payment.
Collection of Information by Third Party Sites
Our site may contain links to other sites whose information practices may be different than ours. You should consult those other sites’ privacy policies, as we have no control over information that you may submit to, or have collected by, those third parties.
