We reserve the right to change the provisions of this Policy at any time. We will take reasonable steps to provide notice that changes have been made, including indicating on the Policy the date it was last updated. Any changes we make to this Policy will not affect how we use or share any personal information we collected before the date of that change, unless we provide you with direct notice and the opportunity to opt out of such use. We encourage you to review this Policy from time to time to make sure that you understand how any personal information you provide will be used.
As used herein, the term “personal information” means information that specifically identifies an individual (such as a name, address, telephone number, mobile number, e-mail address, social security number, credit card number, employment history, or any medical information requested on an employment application) and information about that individual or his or her activities that is directly linked to personally identifiable information. Personal information does not include “aggregate” information, which is data we collect about the use of the Site or about a group or category of services or users, from which individual identities or other personal information has been removed. This Policy in no way restricts or limits our collection and use of aggregate information.
Information We Collect:

We collect certain information you voluntarily provide to us, such as when you apply for an employment position, make a donation, request to become a client, send us an email, fill out a form, connect through a social feed, or request information. Such information may include personal information, such as your name, mailing address, email address, phone number, and credit card information.
In addition, the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) and other agencies may require us to collect personal information from donors.
Passive Collection: When you use the Site, some information is also automatically collected, such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address, your operating system, the browser type, the address of a referring website, and your activity on our Site. We treat this information as personal information if we combine it with or link it to any of the identifying information mentioned above. Otherwise, it is used in the aggregate only.
