The Village Network Privacy Notice

The Village Network is proud to protect the security and confidentiality of your personal information. It is our policy not to sell or pass on any personal information that you provide to us. In an effort to demonstrate our commitment, we would like to inform you how we gather, use and maintain this data.

While the type of personal information that The Village Network collects from you will depend on how you use our website, we do gather broad demographic information about you from your visit to www.thevillagenetwork.org and all other domain names related to The Village Network web site. This information includes the domain name from which you access the Internet, the date and time you access our site, terms entered into our search engine and the Internet address of the web site from which you direct-linked to our site. This type of information is used to track and measure the number of visitors to various sections within our site in an effort to make our site more beneficial.

When inquiries are emailed to The Village Network website, we store the question and email address information so that we can respond electronically. Unless otherwise required by statute, we do not identify publicly who sends questions or comments to our web site. We do not obtain information that will allow us to personally identify who visits our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us.

Multiple people responsible for answering inquiries, reviewing applications, processing donations and distributing organization news, may view emails sent to The Village Network. If an individual cannot accurately answer your question, your query may be forwarded to another representative more experienced in that area. We do not forward your email outside of The Village Network nor do we collect your name and email address for any purpose other than to respond to your query. We will not disclose, sell, trade, rent, or otherwise reveal nonprofit supporters' email addresses with a third party.

In processing forms, The Village Network may receive information from creditors, affiliates and others. Our forms may also require you to submit contact information (e.g., name, email address) and demographic information (e.g., zip code, age, income level). This data is used for contact purposes when necessary. Financial information may also be used to bill you for your donation. While we do not disclose any nonpublic personal information about our applicants or supporters to anyone, except as permitted by law, you should be aware that email is not completely secure against interception. If your communication contains sensitive or personal information, you may want to send it by postal mail or another more secure means.
