Privacy Policy

Learning Home Volunteers (“LHV,” “we,” “our” or “us”) is committed to protecting the privacy of users of the https://learninghomevolunteers.org website (the “Website”). Accordingly, we want you to understand what information we collect about you, how we use it, and the safeguards we have in place to protect it. This policy describes the personal information we obtain from a variety of users, why we collect it, how we use it, and when we share it with third parties. Personal information is any information that on its own, or in combination with other information, could reasonably identify you. Our policy also describes the choices you can make about how we collect and use your information. If our policy changes, we will post an updated policy on the Website.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We collect personal information directly from you including when you request information or services, become a recipient of services, volunteer, or fill out an application or contact form.

Embedded content from other websites

The Website may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Aggregate information

We may collect non-personal information about how users navigate through the Website. We may aggregate this information to improve our site, and we may share this information with outside companies. This aggregated information does not include individual names or personal data, so it does not identify you or any other user.

Donations

When you submit personal information to us in connection with making an online donation we use that information to process the donation. We also store your name and contact information in our database of donors. We may use that information to send you further information about our organization or to contact you if necessary.

Analytics

We use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about use of this site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve this site. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this site by disabling cookies on your browser.

Who we share your data with

LHV does not share personally identifiable information with any nonaffiliated third parties, except at your request and with your express permission or in the circumstances described below:

We may be required to disclose information we collect pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws, including, without limitation, tax laws and laws regulating charities. We may also disclose that information when we believe disclosure is appropriate to protect the rights, interests, property or safety of LHV or others.

We may share aggregated statistical data with others for public relations or other purposes. We share personal information about our users and constituents with our service providers so that they are able to provide services on our behalf or ensure the quality of information provided. For example, we use service providers to process billing, secure payments, optimize services, prevent and detect fraud, send newsletters and marketing messages, support email and messaging services, analyze information, perform maintenance or audits, provide consulting services, evaluate the effectiveness of our marketing, and perform research and development. They will have only the amount of access to your personal information as is reasonably necessary to perform the tasks on our behalf and are contractually obligated not to disclose or use it for other purposes. Our service providers only use your personal information for ways described in this Privacy Policy and we do not share, sell, rent or trade any information with third parties for their promotional purposes.

Data retention

We will retain your personal data for the duration of the relationship, unless a shorter retention period is required by law or the data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which the data was obtained. Once our relationship with you has come to an end, we will retain your personal data for the period of time that enables us to:

  • Fulfill our legal obligations, including legal retention periods;
  • Investigate or defend legal claims;
  • Handle your questions, requests or complaints; and
  • Keep our records for analysis and audit purposes.

Your rights to opt out

If you would like to opt-out of receiving certain communications or have any privacy-related questions or concerns, please contact us using the contact information below.

How we protect your data

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Please note, however, that no transmission over the Internet can be 100% secure. LHV also works to protect user information offline. All of your information is housed in secure, access-restricted areas. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific function are granted access to personally identifiable information. ALTHOUGH LHV WILL USE REASONABLE EFFORTS TO PROVIDE ALL OF THE FOREGOING SECURITY FEATURES, AND TO TREAT ALL DATA IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE POLICIES SET FORTH HEREIN, AS WITH VIRTUALLY ANY COMPUTER SYSTEM, THERE CAN BE NO ABSOLUTE ASSURANCE THAT SECURITY BREACHES WILL NOT OCCUR AND LHV HEREBY DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY WHATSOEVER FOR ANY SUCH SECURITY BREACHES.

Links to other sites

For your convenience and information, the Website includes links to other sites operated by third-parties. Such linked sites have their own privacy policies, which may differ significantly from LHV’s. Information you submit to linked sites is subject to the privacy policies of those sites, and LHV is not responsible for the content or practices of any linked site. We recommend that you review the privacy policy of any site that you access through the Website.

In the event of any change to our Online Privacy Policy, notice of such changes will be posted on our website. Any changes to this Online Privacy Policy will become effective when we post the revised Online Privacy Policy on our website. Your use of our website following these changes means that you accept the revised Online Privacy Policy.
