Privacy Policy

Plummer Home for Boys (Plummer Home) is committed to protecting the personal information you provide when using our website. This online privacy statement describes how we treat all user data collected by us during your visit.

Plummer Home may occasionally update this statement. We will post any changes on this web page, and encourage you to check back periodically to make sure you understand how any personal information you provide will be used.

What personal information do we collect?
We collect two types of user data: (1) data that you voluntarily submit to us, and (2) technical data that is automatically collected from all visitors to our sites.

Voluntarily Provided Information: We collect certain information you voluntarily provide us, such as make a donation, sign up for our emails, register online for an event, fill out a form, post blog comments or other content, or participate in any activity that requires you to type in identifying information such as your name, address, email address or phone number.

Information Automatically Collected: We automatically collect Internet Protocol ("IP") addresses and domain names of the originating visitor's computer and may know some information you have previously provided through cookies (a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters). The use of cookies is common practice.

In addition, we use a tool called Google Analytics to collect information about use of our sites. The data Google Analytics collects is presented to Plummer Home in aggregate. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit our sites, what pages they visit, and what other sites they used prior to coming to our sites. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve our sites. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Google's ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. The Google Analytics Terms of Use are available online at http://www.google.com/analytics/tos.html. The Google Privacy Policy is available online at http://www.google.com/privacypolicy.html. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to our sites by disabling cookies on your browser.

How do we use the information you voluntarily provide us?
We will use the information you voluntarily provide us to send you information about Plummer Home and its programs, including program updates, event announcements and periodic fundraising appeals. We may also occasionally send you information about research or news reports related to Plummer Home and or its mission.

How do we share your information with third parties?
We will not share the information we collect from you through our site with third parties, except as described in this policy. For example, we may share personal information as follows:

  • with vendors, consultants, and other service providers who work with us in connection with the operation of our sites or the services we provide and who need access to such information to carry out their work for us;
  • when you give us your consent to do so, including if we notify you on our sites that the information you provide will be shared in a particular manner and you provide such information;
  • in an aggregated or anonymous form that does not directly identify you;
  • when we believe in good faith that we are lawfully authorized or required to do so or that doing so is reasonably necessary or appropriate to comply with the law or legal processes or respond to lawful requests or legal authorities, including responding to lawful subpoenas, warrants, or court orders;
  • when we believe in good faith that we are lawfully authorized or required to do so or that doing so is reasonably necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of Plummer Home, our users, our employees, our clients, copyright owners, third parties or the public, including without limitation to protect Plummer Home or our users from fraudulent, abusive, inappropriate, or unlawful use of our sites;
  • to enforce or apply this policy or our other policies or agreements; and
  • in connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of organization assets, financing or acquisition, or in any other situation where personal information may be disclosed or transferred as one of the assets of Plummer Home.

We are not responsible for the actions of service providers or other third parties, nor are we responsible for any additional information you provide directly to any third parties, and we encourage you to become familiar with their privacy practices before disclosing information directly to any such parties. Nothing herein restricts the sharing of aggregated or anonymous information, which may be shared with third parties without your consent.
