Collection of your Personal Information

We use our best efforts to respect and protect the privacy of our online visitors. For each visitor to our site, our server automatically recognizes only the visitor’s domain name, but not the e-mail address.

For purposes of improving our Web site content, aggregate information is collected on what pages of the Web site are visited. We only gather personally identifiable data (such as names, addresses, zip/postal codes, e-mail addresses, etc.) that are voluntarily submitted by the visitor, and we only use such data to facilitate online donations, or to return information requested through our online forms. Such data, including email addresses, may be shared with our local Special Olympics Programs for the above named purposes. Web site visitor information is used for internal Special Olympics purposes only and will not be sold to third parties. E-mail addresses of visitors and donors are never sold or exchanged.

If you supply us with your postal address online, you may receive periodic mailings from us with information on upcoming events, volunteer opportunities, requests for financial support, or new products or services. If you do not wish to receive such mailings, please let us know by contacting us using the address and telephone number provided above, or e-mail us at information@soindiana.org.
Use of your Personal Information

Special Olympics Indiana collects and uses your personal information to operate the Special Olympics Indiana Web site and deliver the services you have requested. Special Olympics Indiana also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Special Olympics Indiana and its affiliates. Special Olympics Indiana may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

Special Olympics Indiana does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Special Olympics Indiana may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, Special Olympics Indiana may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Special Olympics Indiana, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

Special Olympics Indiana does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

Special Olympics Indiana keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within Special Olympics Indiana, in order to determine what Special Olympics Indiana services are the most popular.

Special Olympics Indiana Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Special Olympics Indiana or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Special Olympics Indiana; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Special Olympics Indiana, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The Special Olympics Indiana Web site use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Special Olympics Indiana pages, or register with Special Olympics Indiana site or services, a cookie helps Special Olympics Indiana to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Special Olympics Indiana Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Special Olympics Indiana features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Special Olympics Indiana services or Web sites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

Special Olympics Indiana secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Special Olympics Indiana secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
