Website Visitors

Like most website operators, National Charity League collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. National Charity League's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how National Charity League's visitors use its website. From time to time, National Charity League may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

National Charity League also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on nationalcharityleague.org blogs/sites. National Charity League only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to National Charity League's websites choose to interact with National Charity League in ways that require National Charity League to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that National Charity League gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at nationalcharityleague.org to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with National Charity League are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, National Charity League collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with National Charity League. National Charity League does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

The personal data that we specifically capture on this website includes:

  • Your email address is stored until the post and/or product you commented upon is deleted (Contact).
  • Your email address is stored until your account is deleted (Contact).
  • Your email address is stored when a login fails to assist in breach detection (Security).
  • Your email address is stored when you submit a form (Contact).
  • Your IP address is stored if we detect updates to the site to assist in breach detection (Security).
  • Your IP address is stored until your account is deleted (Contact).
  • Your IP address is stored when a login fails to assist in breach detection (Security).
We use Google Analytics to collect, monitor and analyze aggregate access patterns in order to increase our services and functionality. We make full use of Google's IP Anonymization support which anonymizes your IP address at the earliest possible stage of the collection network. The IP anonymization feature in Analytics sets the last octet of IPv4 user IP addresses and the last 80 bits of IPv6 addresses to zeros in memory shortly after being sent to the Analytics Collection Network. We also turn off campaign tracking and so protect your anonymity further should you receive an email from us with campaign information in the link.

Aggregated Statistics

National Charity League may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. National Charity League may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, National Charity League does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, National Charity League discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request , or when National Charity League believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of National Charity League, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an National Charity League website and have supplied your email address, National Charity League may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with National Charity League and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.
