What information we collect and how we use that information
Our registration forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, email address, format preference (HTML vs. Text), address, interests, and similar information. We do not request or store sensitive information from our visitors, such as credit card or social security numbers.
We will not sell your name, address or phone number. However, we may trade information with organizations of a similar interest, including non-profits and for-profit businesses. Please contact us at any time if you do not want your personal information included in a trade (see instructions on how to contact us at the end of this policy statement.)
All submitted financial information is used only to complete the specified transactions. All paper documents containing personal financial information are regularly shredded. All electronically transmitted financial transactions are done via secure encrypted transmission. We will not sell, rent, or trade your financial information.
If you have given us your e-mail address, you may receive e-mail from us regarding urgent action alerts and volunteer opportunities and events (unless noted otherwise when you supplied your e-mail address). Please contact us at any time if you wish your e-mail address to be excluded from any future email mailings (see instructions on how to contact us at the end of this policy statement.)
We will not sell, rent or trade your e-mail address.
Facebook App - Data Deletion Request
If you have connected your Participant Center to Facebook in order to create a linked Facebook Fundraiser to your Personal Fundraising Page, as a participant one of our peer-to-peer fundraising campaigns - The Walk for Hunger or Holiday Fundraiser - you can request that your data be deleted once you remove the app. The app users can do this by going to their Facebook profile and clicking the Send Request button on the Settings & Privacy > Settings > Apps and Websites page.
Internet Protocol (IP) Address
We collect an IP address from all visitors to our site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our site, analyze trends, track users' movement, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Use of "Cookies"
Project Bread’s website has industry standard high encryption security measures in place. We go to great lengths to protect the confidentiality and integrity of any personal information you share with us over the Internet.
Project Bread treats personal data such as credit card information as critical assets that must be guarded at all times against loss and unauthorized access. As such, we do not store your credit card information.
Furthermore, to ensure the security of credit card and personal information, this website employs industry-standard security methods, including the Secure Socket Layers (SSL) protocol for the encryption of transmitted data. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.
If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend's name and email address. Project Bread will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the website. Project Bread stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email.
Our site contains links to other websites. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are entering another website for which Project Bread has no responsibility. We encourage you to read the privacy statements on all such sites as their policies may be different than ours.
