Safe Horizon collects information about you that you provide to us through this Site via online registration form, online employment, volunteer and internship applications, and online donations you make. Safe Horizon does not collect information about victimization via this Site, and you should not use the Site to provide us with such information or to request services from Safe Horizon.
If you are seeking services from Safe Horizon, please call our hotlines or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that if you are in an abusive relationship, the abuser may be able to read your incoming and outgoing email, as well as track visits to this Site, if your abuser has access to your computer.
What Information We Collect, How We Use It, and To Whom It Is Disclosed
Our online registration forms require information that may include your name, address, email address, format preference (html vs. text), telephone number, demographic information and interests. We do not store financial information from our website visitors, such as credit card numbers, once donations are processed. Your registration information will be used to keep you informed of Safe Horizon’s activities and events. We may disclose your registration information to third parties that administer the Site or forward announcements and newsletters to you on our behalf.
We also collect an IP address from all visitors to our Site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our Site, analyze trends, track users' movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use, in order for us to improve the Site. IP addresses are not linked to personally-identifiable information. We may disclose IP addresses to third parties that administer our Site.
Only employees of Safe Horizon from the Human Resource Department and those involved in the hiring decision will have access to the information you provide on the online employment, volunteer and internship application information.
In certain instances, Safe Horizon may release information provided by you to the appropriate government agency or third parties when we believe, in good faith, that such release is required by law, or requested by subpoena or court order. Safe Horizon may also, in its sole discretion, release such information to assist investigators, prosecutors, or third parties in discovery with respect to valid legal claims, to prevent harm to you or any other person, or to protect the organization.
Safe Horizon may disclose your information to successors in interest to its operations, for example, if it, or certain aspects of its business, should be taken over by another entity.
All information you provide to Safe Horizon via the donation form on the Site, including your credit card information, is transmitted to us using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure.
We protect your registration information by placing it on a secure portion of our Site that is only accessible by certain employees of Safe Horizon. While we strive to protect the confidentiality of your information as described above, we cannot ensure or warrant that such information will be secure from unauthorized individuals.
Please note that if your friend is in an abusive relationship, an email about Safe Horizon that your friend receives may be available to the abuser. Make sure such email can be read only by the intended recipient, or give your recipient information from our Site in another format that an abuser cannot intercept.
