Privacy Policy

Waitt Instutute for Violence Prevention respects our visitors’ right to privacy online. We hold your information in confidence.

Asking for your Information
We will sometimes ask you for personal information such as your name, address, e-mail address, occupation and other details. By providing your information to us, we can deliver the most relevant educational information to you that we believe you would like to hear about. When you choose to give personal information to us over the Internet that we request, we will endeavor to inform you how we will use the information.

When we ask for personal information for any reason, we will provide a link to this policy statement to make our intentions clear.

Personal Privacy Information
Waitt Instutute for Violence Prevention will take all appropriate steps to keep your personal information confidential. Those steps include limiting access to visitor information databases, communicating this policy statement to all Institute employees and establishing and enforcing penalties for violating this statement.

Waitt Instutute for Violence Prevention will not sell, rent, or give away our visitors’ personal information to others for use in selling products or services. When we do identify an organization that can use visitor information to further an appropriate charitable or educational purpose, we will insist on binding agreements from those organizations protecting our information. We will vigorously enforce all privacy agreements we have with other organizations.

We gather personal information from visitors to our site so we can better develop our relationship with those visitors and pursue our charitable mission more effectively. Occasionally, we seek comments on our public programs. These comments allow us to determine which programs members of the public should be made aware of based on their specific needs.

We may communicate with visitors via e-mail or other online delivery devices only if the visitor agrees to receive those communications. Members of the public, who believe they are receiving our communications in error or no longer desire to receive them, should inform us and we will remove those clients’ names from our mailing lists. The Waitt Instutute for Violence Prevention will be judicious in the use of e-mail and paper mail to communicate with members of the public. We will, at all times, put ourselves in the place of the recipients of our mail and treat recipients as we ourselves would like to be treated.

Waitt Instutute for Violence Prevention may team with others to provide our visitors with enhanced Internet services. In providing such services, our partners also may request personal information from our clients. We prohibit these partners from selling or giving away our visitor information and we require them to have a posted Privacy Policy, so that visitors may review it before providing personal information to our partners.

In addition, we may provide links to sites that operate under different privacy practices. We encourage our visitors to review the privacy policies of such sites before providing any personal information. Although we cannot control the use of information provided to such third parties, we will try to link only to those sites that have suitable privacy policies.

Security
To protect your personal information, we store your information in a secure area. Access to such information is strictly monitored.
