Information collected
Our website does not automatically collect any individually identifiable information, such as email addresses, from visitors.

We collect personal information when you provide it in the course of interacting with the site. At slvhc.org, or one of our other sites, you might be able to register and create a user profile to submit events or posts, make use of a career center, subscribe to an email newsletter, take part in message boards or chat, send greeting cards, participate in polls or surveys, submit a contact form, or make a donation. In so doing, you may be asked to provide personally identifiable information such as your name, address, email address, telephone number, fax number, credit card information, or information about your interests and activities. When registering on one of our sites, we may also ask you to choose a security question to answer (such as your mother’s maiden name or your pet’s name). If you send a greeting card, you must provide the name and e-mail address of the recipient.

If your personal information changes and you wish to update it (such as your address), or if you wish to delete your information, you can make changes to your user profile on the site. If this should prove insufficient, you may contact the website administrator who will correct, update or remove your personal information as requested.

We also may collect information that is not personally identifiable, such as the type of browser you are using (e.g., Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using, (e.g., Windows or Mac OS) and the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., Charter, Comcast). We may also collect aggregated information on the way visitors interact with and consume content on our websites. This information will not be tied to you as an individual user. Such information is helpful for improving your experience on the website.

How the information is used
We may use the information you give us to provide services to you, at your request. We may use it to communicate with you through periodic messages regarding services, events, and other information and notices we believe you may find interesting or useful. We may use it for confirmation of donations, registrations, or other actions you take on our site, and for related customer service needs. We use information you provide about others to enable us to send them your greeting cards.

We do not sell, rent, swap or otherwise share our mailing lists with other organizations. Any personal information you provide on our website will not be disseminated to third parties outside of the Committee.

We will disclose personally identifiable information when required to do so by law.

Cookies
Our site makes limited use of cookies. A cookie is a small file that is saved on your computer browser that contains information related to your use of a site. We use cookies to personalize your experience on our site by recognizing your computer when you return. If you are a registered user, a cookie may link to your user profile as a convenience to bypass the necessity of logging in. If you reject cookies, you might experience limited usability in some areas of our site.

Security
SLVHC.org and all other St. Louis Veterans Home Committee websites use appropriate procedures to ensure the security of your personal information and to protect it from unauthorized access. In particular, when we ask you to enter credit card information, we use the top industry standard security protection, including encryption, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) transmission connection, and a secure server for information storage. Encryption keys are secured by SLIMCD.

While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the top or bottom of Web browsers such as Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, when you are just “surfing.”

Changes to this policy
We reserve the right to change this policy at any time with or without notice. By using any of our websites, you agree to the terms set forth in this privacy policy. Please refer to this privacy policy periodically to ensure you’re aware of our current policies.
