Scope of Privacy Policy

This policy applies to your use of this site. This policy does not apply to your use of unaffiliated sites to which this site only links.  The Kettle Moraine YMCA, Inc. is not responsible for any unaffiliated sites linked to this site. This website may, from time to time, provide links to other websites, including those operated by unrelated governmental agencies, non-profit organizations, and private businesses, all of which are unaffiliated with this website. Be advised that Kettle Moraine YMCA, Inc. is not responsible for the content of such other unrelated/unaffiliated sites and shall not be liable for any damages or injury arising from that content. Any links to other sites are provided merely as a convenience to the users of this site. When you link to another unrelated site, you are no longer on the Kettle Moraine YMCA, Inc.'s website and this privacy policy will not apply. When you link to an unrelated website, you are subject to the privacy policy of that site. If you visit an unrelated website that is linked to our site, you should carefully consult that site's privacy policy before providing any personal information.

Personal Identification Information

We may request personal identification information from you (such as your last name, age, city and state) in connection with your use of, or participation in registration for surveys, forums, content submissions, chats, bulletin boards, discussion groups, requests for suggestions, or additional information, and in connection with other activities, services or resources we make available on our site. In all of these cases, we will collect personal identification information from you only if you voluntarily submit such information to us. Except as otherwise provided in this policy, we reasonably endeavor to ensure that we never intentionally disclose any personal identification information about you as an individual user to any third party without having received your permission (through opt-in or similar procedures) except as provided for herein or otherwise as permitted or required under law. Further, Kettle Moraine YMCA, Inc. may contact you based on the information you provide online whether in connection with your registration or in such places as the above described forums.

If you do provide us with personal information for any of these activities, we may use it to conduct the activity.

The Kettle Moraine YMCA, Inc. does not rent or sell personal identification information, including information provided by children, to outside marketers. In certain circumstances, the Kettle Moraine YMCA, Inc. may share personal identification information with trusted service providers that need access to your information to provide operational or other support services or we may share this aggregate statistical information with other third parties; to ensure the confidentiality and security of this information, service providers must agree to safeguard all information in strict compliance with our policy. We may also provide information to regulatory authorities and law enforcement officials in accordance with applicable law or when we otherwise believe in good faith that the law requires it.

Transaction Information

If you order any information, or subscribe to any program services offered on our site, we will ask you to complete an order form that requires certain information, including payment information such as a credit card number and expiration date as well as general contact, billing and shipping information. We will use this information to complete the transaction and to deliver the information, products or services you ordered and to collect payment. For your protection, all such information is collected and stored through encrypted means.

Security

Whatever you transmit or disclose online could be collected and used by others or even unlawfully intercepted by third parties. No data transmission over the internet can ever be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us. We have taken several steps to safeguard the integrity of our website and to prevent unauthorized access to information maintained by us. These measures are designed and intended to prevent corruption of data and to block unknown or unauthorized access to our systems and information. Certain pieces of personally-identifying information, such as credit card information, are transferred to our computers utilizing encryption software as set forth above.  Our security policies are reviewed periodically and revised as required.

Non-Personal Identification Information

We collect non-personal identification information without limitation, through the use of the following types of methodology:

"Cookie" technology: A "cookie" is an element of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then store it on your system.

"IP address tracking": An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you are on the Internet. When you request pages from our Sites, our servers log your IP address.

"Web beacons": A Web beacon, or "clear gif," is a small graphic image on a webpage or web-based document that a website can use to determine information about a user.

Non-personal identification information might include the browser you use, the type of computer, technical information about your means of connection to our site (such as the operating systems and the Internet service providers utilized), and other similar information. Our systems may also automatically gather information about the areas you visit and search terms you utilize on our site and about the links you may select from within our site to other areas of the World Wide Web or elsewhere online.

We use such information for our business purposes, and, in particular, primarily to administer the site, and, in the aggregate, to what technologies are being used so that we may continually improve our site.

Privacy of Children

We are mindful that young people need special safeguards and privacy protection. We realize that they may not understand all the provisions of our policy or be able to make thoughtful decisions about the choices that are made available to our adult users. We strongly urge all parents to participate in their children's exploration of the Internet and any online services, and to teach their children about protecting their personal information while online. Our site is a general audience site. We do not currently knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of thirteen. If in the future, the site knowingly collects personally identifiable information from children, we will do so in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (15 U.S.C. 6501 et seq.) including, without limitation, obtaining necessary parental consents.

If you "opt-in" to receive information from us, you can change your mind later. If at any time you would like to stop receiving such information or opt-out of a feature, you may change your options by contacting sleider@kmymca.org. You should be aware, however, that it is not always possible to completely remove or modify information in our databases and servers, although we will always make reasonable efforts to do so upon your request, and we are unable to have your information removed from the records of any third party who has been provided with your information in accordance with this policy.
