Privacy Policy

LARC FOUNDATION PRIVACY POLICY

Thank you for visiting the Los Angeles Residential Community Foundation website and reviewing our privacy policy.

Our privacy policy is clear:

We will not collect personal information about you when you visit our website unless you choose to provide that information to us.

If you do provide us with personal information, we will use it consistent with the terms of this Privacy Policy. We will never sell, exchange or release your personal information to third parties outside LARC Foundation without your consent. If you believe that a violation of this policy has taken place, please contact us at info@larcfoundation.org, or by mail at: Los Angeles Retarded Citizens’ Foundation, 29890 North Bouquet Canyon Road, Saugus, CA 91390.  We will do everything possible to resolve the situation to your satisfaction.

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes here.  If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we may use their information in this different manner.

Information Collected and Stored Automatically

If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the website, read pages, or download information, we will gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you personally. We automatically collect and store some or all of the following information about your visit:

1. The Internet domain (for example, “yourdomain.com” and IP address (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web) from which you access our website;

2. The type of browser and operating system used to access our site;

3. The date and time you access our site;

4. The pages you visit; and

5. If you linked to the LARC website from another website, the address of that website.

If You Send Us Personal Information

The LARC Foundation will only collect personal information which you knowingly provide via e-mail communication, registration, survey, on-line contribution, or other specific transaction in which you voluntarily participate.  If you choose to provide us with personal information, in addition to completing the original transaction, we may use the information on occasion to provide you with information about a broad range of LARC activities, programs, contribution opportunities and special events which we believe you will find interesting.  When we send you such LARC information, you will always have an immediate opportunity to decline further correspondence. Additionally, if at any time you do not want us to send you LARC-related information, you may request prompt removal by sending an e-mail to the webmaster address provided in the communication you received.

Children and Privacy

We at LARC Foundation are especially concerned about protecting children’s privacy.  We do not knowingly ask any child under the age of 13 to provide personal information. We do not collect personally identifiable information from our sites geared to children. If a child sends an e-mail to LARC, we will only use it to respond to the writer and not to create profiles or otherwise retain the information.  It is important for parents and teachers to be actively involved in children’s Internet explorations, and to emphasize to children that they should not provide personal information unless their parents have given their consent.

Security

We take reasonable precautions to ensure that all credit card transactions are secure.  When you submit your credit to make a donation at the LARC website that transaction is encrypted using “Secure Socket Layer” (SSL) encryption to prevent your credit card information from being seen as it travels over the Internet to our servers.

We monitor network traffic to ensure that our site remains available to all users and to identify unauthorized attempts to access, upload or change information or otherwise cause damage.

Unauthorized access is prohibited and is punishable under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986, and the National Information Infrastructure Protection Act.

Linking

There are links from the LARC website to other websites outside LARC Foundation.  When you click on links that take you to third party websites, you will be leaving our server and will be subject to the privacy policies of those third parties.  While we support the protection of privacy on the Internet, LARC Foundation cannot be responsible for the actions of third parties.  We encourage you to read the posted privacy statement whenever interacting with any website.
