What Personally Identifiable Information is Collected by the Program?
When you visit our website, you may provide us with personal information (such as name, email address, and/or telephone numbers) that you knowingly choose to disclose, which is collected on an individual basis for various purposes. These purposes include requesting further information from us about our early intervention program and services, offering to volunteer, inquiring about employment opportunities, or simply asking a question. We receive and store any information you enter on our website. We ask for personal information so that we can fulfill your request and return your message. This information is retained and used in accordance with existing laws, rules, regulations, and other policies.
The Program does not collect personal information from you unless you provide it to us. If you choose not to provide any of that information, we may not be able to fulfill your request, but you will still be free to browse the other sections of the websites owned and administered by the Program. This means that you can visit our website without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself.
The Way We Use Information
When you supply information about yourself for a specific purpose, we use the information for only that purpose (such as to provide the information you have requested). We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to provide you with the information you requested.
We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.
The Program does not sell, rent, give-away, or share its email addresses or other personal contact information with outside sources. The Program also does not send mailings on behalf of other organizations.
Our Commitment to Data Security
Personally identifiable information is stored on our server and is not publicly accessible. Further, personally identifiable information is only accessed by Program personnel on a “need to know” basis. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
If you would like to verify the data we have received from you or make corrections to it, you may contact us directly at the email and mail addresses provided herein.

IP numbers are not stored but are temporarily used to determine domain type and in some cases, geographic region. We do not make any association between this information and a visitor’s identity.
When you visit our website, our servers make a log of basic information corresponding to the sites and pages you have visited. This information is stored primarily to track the effectiveness of our website and individual sections and pages within them.
Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance
The Program believes it is good policy not to knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. In addition, be aware that all sites that are targeted to children under 13 are prohibited by law from collecting more information than they need.
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) protects the personal information of children under the age of 13. This applies to individually identifiable information about a child that is collected online, such as full name, home address, email address, telephone number or any other information that would allow someone to identify or contact the child. The Act also covers other types of information—for example, hobbies, interests and information collected through cookies or other types of tracking mechanisms—when they are tied to individually identifiable information. It is important for you to understand this law; we encourage you to read more about COPPA.
We are in compliance with the requirements of COPPA as we do not knowingly collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age. Our website and destination sites are all directed to people who are at least 13 year old or older. We are dedicated to safeguarding any personal information collected online and to helping everyone have a positive experience on the Internet. Consistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent.
Parents/guardians can revoke their consent and ask that information (if any) about their children be deleted by contacting our offices at email@example.com. To do this, or to review personal information collected from children, we must verify the identity of the requesting parent. When a parent revokes consent, we will stop collecting, using, or disclosing information from that child (if any has been collected). To respect the privacy of parents/guardians, information collected and used for the sole purpose of obtaining verifiable parental consent or providing notice is not maintained in retrievable form by the site if parental consent is not obtained after a reasonable time.

Changes to this Privacy Statement
