Each version of this Policy will be identified at the top of the page by its effective date.

What Categories of Information Are Collected Through The Web Site?

  • Personal Information. We collect information that can be used to identify you personally (“personal information”), such as your name, mailing address, company name, telephone number, and email address.
  • Other Information. We also collect information that cannot be used to easily identify you, such as information about your computer hardware and software.

Why Do We Collect and Use This Information?
We collect your personal information in order to provide the best possible service to those who wish to take advantage of The Hetrick-Martin Institute’s programs as well as to reach out to those who want to contribute to our mission.

How Do We Collect and Use This Information

Personal Information. We collect the personal information that you voluntarily provide to us when you use this Web Site. For example, if you request information about our programs and services or complete and submit the registration information on the “Donate Now” page, we will collect any information that you provide to us in such request or submission.

  • Other Information. Like the operators of most web sites, we may use tracking software and similar technology, which automatically collects information about your computer hardware and software, and use of the Web Site. This information may be used by us for the operation of the Web Site and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Web Site. Many commercial web site operators collect this information in similar ways.
  • Cookies. Cookies are bits of electronic information that a web site can transfer to a visitor’s hard drive to help tailor and keep records of his or her visit. Cookies allow web site operators to better customize visits to the site to the visitor’s individual preferences. Many commercial web sites use cookies. Although most web browsers automatically accept cookies, you can usually change your browser to prevent or notify you whenever you are sent a cookie. This gives you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. However, if you set your browser such that it does not accept cookies, you may not be able to access certain of the features on the Web Site.

How Do We Use and Protect Your Personal Information?
When we collect personal information we include it in our computerized database. We use that information to serve our clientele, stay in touch with donors and volunteers, and provide information about events and programs.

Whenever we obtain your personal information, we will use reasonable practices to protect your personal information from unauthorized access or disclosure. While we will use such efforts, we cannot and will not act as insurers of the security of your personal information. Accordingly, we assume no liability for any disclosure of data due to errors in transmission, unauthorized third party access or other acts of third parties, or acts or omissions beyond our reasonable control.

What About Children’s Personal Information?
We have a very strict confidentiality policy in place to protect the youth to whom we provide services and any other young people contacting The Hetrick-Martin Institute. However, if you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any information to us or to the Web Site electronically.

What About Intellectual Property?
All materials on the Web Site, including without limitation, the THE HETRICK-MARTIN INSTITUTE trademark, logos, design, text, graphics, other files, and the selection and arrangement thereof are either owned by The Hetrick-Martin Institute or are the property of The Hetrick-Martin Institute’s suppliers or licensors.
