We are committed to protecting your privacy.
This Policy explains how we collect and process your personal information. By using our Online Services and/or providing us with your personal information, you consent to the practices described in this Policy. Our Online Services include LJI’s website (“Site”) and Project Beautiful mobile application (“App”).
We reserve the right to change this Policy at any time by posting a revised policy on the Site with the date it was last updated. We encourage you to review this Policy periodically to make sure that you understand its terms.
What Information Do We Collect?
We collect personal information when you voluntarily submit it to us.
“Personal information” is information that specifically identifies an individual (such as name, address, telephone number, email address, credit card or other financial information, or other account number). It also includes demographic information, such as date of birth, gender, geographic area, and religious affiliation, when such information is linked to other personal information that identifies you.
Personal information does not include “aggregate” information, which is data we collect about the use of our Online Services or about a group of products, services, or users, from which personal identifying information has been removed.
How and Why Do We Collect Personal Information?
We may collect personal information in the following ways:
- You register for the Site or sign up for our newsletter.
- You make a donation.
- You participate in interactive areas of Online Services.
- You apply for an employment or volunteer opportunity.
- You request information or materials from our organization.
We collect personal information primarily to accept donations, complete our charitable projects, and provide you with information about our programs. We may also use the information:
- To send you a welcoming email or other correspondence.
- To recognize the generosity of donors who have not requested anonymity.
- To respond to requests for information or merchandise.
- To comply with federal and state tax regulations, to conduct audits, and to maintain accreditations relating to our charitable and faith-based missions.
When you visit our Site, some information is automatically collected through the use of request logging, such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address or operating system, the browser, the address of a referring website, and your activity on the Site. We use this information to analyze trends, improve our Online Services, diagnose problems with our servers, manage and track use of the Site, and gather aggregate demographic information.
Personal information provided online may be linked with other information, including personal information we receive from you offline through third parties. Examples of third parties include other charitable or faith-based organizations or businesses that provide us with services.
Cookies and How We Use Them
We may also automatically collect information through “cookies,” or small data files stored on a user’s hard drive at the request of a website to enable the site to recognize users who have previously visited them and to retain certain information, such as customer preferences and history. If you wish to block, erase, or be warned of cookies, please refer to your browser’s instructions. However, if your browser is set to not accept cookies or if you reject a cookie, you may not be able to use or access certain Site features or services.
In addition to cookies, we use single pixel gifs, or web beacons, in our emails. Web beacons track behavior, such as who has opened an email and when, the IP address, the browser or email type, which links were clicked, and other similar information. This allows us to measure the performance of email campaigns and improve the quality of our emails.
Sharing Information with Third Parties
To facilitate the operation of our Online Services and our organization, we may share some personal information with our agents, volunteers or clients, affiliated religious or non-profit organizations, and governmental or accreditation agencies who need access to such information to carry out their work. Examples include:
- Our marketing agents may be given names and addresses to send mailings.
- Our volunteers or clients may be given names and phone numbers to thank donors personally.
- Affiliated nonprofits with a common mission may be given limited contact information for our volunteers.
- Government or accreditation agencies may be given information regarding donations, including the identity or demographic information of donors.
We may from time to time initiate or sponsor campaigns to raise awareness about human trafficking issues and may request your signature as an indication of support on a petition. In the case of petition campaigns, unless you have requested to be included as “anonymous,” we may display on our website your first name, last initial, city and state, and deliver your first and last names, address, city and state, zip code, or congressional district to the advocacy target as part of the petition to validate your signature.
We may disclose personal information in the good faith belief that we are lawfully authorized or required to do so, or that doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with the law; respond to any claims; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of LJI, our users, guests and clients, employees, or the public.
Our Online Services may contain links to other websites. Please be aware that although we may participate in or utilize such sites, we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites.
How Do We Protect Your Personal Information?
We endeavor to secure your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure by putting into place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information. Please be aware, however, that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable.
You should note that email is not secure, and you should not send any confidential or sensitive information to us via an unsecured email. To protect the confidentiality of your personal information, you must keep your password confidential and not disclose it to any other person. You are responsible for all uses of the Online Services by any person using your password. Please email us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org if you believe your password has been misused.
