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.
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.
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.
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 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.
