How Personal Information is Collected and Used
HandwashingForLife® only collects personal information that you voluntarily submit through our Web sites. This may include information such as your name, street and e-mail addresses, and telephone number. We do not automatically collect personal information without your knowledge.
Uses of Personal Information
When you submit personal information to HandwashingForLife®, you will be asked to decide how we may use your information. Unless we specifically tell you otherwise before you submit personal information, we will only use it to:
- Respond to your questions or comments
- Better understand your needs
- Help us understand how we can improve related products, services, and Web site
- Inform you about special activities
- Contact you to ask for your opinion or willingness to participate in certain events
Limiting the Use of Your Information
If you submit personal information to HandwashingForLife®, you have two options:
- You may choose to restrict our use of your information to a specific application, such as answering your question about a product. This is called the “Opt-Out” choice. These options give you the opportunity to control the usage of your personal information by “opting out” of our systems.
To improve your visit to our sites, we may use “cookies” to obtain non-personal information (cookies are text information files that your browser places on your computer when you visit a Web site). We may aggregate this data to analyze the viewing habits of our site visitors, but it will not be associated with any personally identifiable data.
Sharing Your Personal Information With Others
HandwashingForLife® will not use or share your personal information in ways unrelated to the uses described above unless we provide you with prior notice and give you an opportunity to change your usage preferences.
Unless you give us prior consent, HandwashingForLife® will not trade, sell, or share your personal information with any person or entity other than The Handwashing For LifeÂ® Institute and its subsidiaries, affiliates and representatives, unless required by law or as disclosed to you before the information is collected.
Access to Your Information
To modify your personal information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will make every effort to respond to your requests in a timely manner.
If you have already submitted personal information to HandwashingForLife®, you may opt-out of the company’s future use of that information by sending an e-mail email@example.com. Upon receiving your request, we will delete your personal information from our records.
Security of Your Information
The security of your personal information is very important to us. We use appropriate technical and managerial procedures to protect your personal information and prevent its disclosure outside HandwashingForLife®. Only those authorized by HandwashingForLife® will be granted access to your personal information.
In addition to careful consideration about what information you share and who you share it with, we recommend that everyone develop good security habits. These include protecting and regularly changing your password, using computer virus protection, logging off when you finish using your computer, and considering the use of file or email encryption programs.
We operate our sites in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). While some of our pages contain information designed specifically for children, HandwashingForLife® will not ask for, collect, or use any personal information from anyone identified as being under the age of 13.
