WHAT ARE COOKIES?
WHAT OTHER INFORMATION DO YOU REQUEST?
We may also request your e-mail address or mailing address for the purposes of conducting a survey or to provide additional services (for example, subscriptions to e-mail newsletters, announcement lists or information about seminars). Whenever we request the identity of a visitor, we will clearly indicate the purpose of the inquiry before the information is requested.
In addition, D2L.org will not send you email that you have not agreed to receive. We may from time to time send e-mail announcing new products and services. If you choose to supply your postal address in an online form, you may receive mailings.
If you choose to donate or purchase something online, we need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number, and expiration date. This allows us to process and fulfill your order and to notify you of your order status. This information may also be used by us to notify you of related product and services.
We will not trade, share, or sell a donor’s personal information with anyone else, nor we will send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations. Additionally, we will only share or sell personal information once a donor has given us specific permission to do so.
WILL YOU DISCLOSE THE INFORMATION YOU COLLECT TO OUTSIDE THIRD PARTIES?
Darkness to Light will disclose personal information when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:
1) Conform to the edicts of the law or comply with a legal process served on Darkness to Light,
2) Protect and defend the rights or property of Darkness to Light, or visitors to D2L.org,
3) Identify persons who may be violating the law, the legal notice, or the rights of third parties,
4) Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities.
5) Participate in research that is beneficial to the study of child sexual abuse prevention.
Darkness to Light uses reasonable precautions to keep the information disclosed to us secure. We are not responsible for any breach of security or for any actions of any third parties which receive the information.
WHAT ELSE SHOULD I KNOW ABOUT MY PRIVACY WHEN ONLINE?
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online – for example through e-mail, discussion lists, or elsewhere – that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you’re online.
