Empowered Women Privacy Policy

By accessing or using the Empowered Women Website, you agree to the terms of the Empowered Women Website Privacy Policy, as outlined below. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not access or use this site. The Empowered Women Website reserves the right to change the Privacy Policy from time to time at its sole discretion. Your use of this site will be subject to the most current version of the Privacy Policy at the time of such use.

Collection of Personal Information

When you engage in certain activities on this site, requesting newsletter or email subscriptions, pledge your support, or donate on the Empowered Women Website we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, the Empowered Women Website may ask that you provide us personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including zip code), E-mail address, employer, job title and department, telephone and facsimile numbers, and other personally identifying information. If you do not provide the requested data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.

How Your Personal Information is Used

The Empowered Women Website collects your information in order to record and support your participation in the activities you select. For example, if you sign up for our newsletter, your information is used to contact you and send appropriate materials.

Opting Out

The Empowered Women Website recognizes and appreciates the importance of responsible use of information collected on this site. For this reason, Empowered Women reserves the option of contacting you at least one time about activities in which Empowered Women is involved. At that time, and with each subsequent email, Empowered Women will provide you with the opportunity to “opt out” using our automated system. If you choose this option, you will receive no further email from Empowered Women.

Log Data

The Empowered Women Website collects information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Site (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our Site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics.

Cookies

We may use cookies to enhance your experience while using our site. Cookies are used for record-keeping purposes at many websites. Cookies cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive, pass on computer viruses, or capture your email address. You can instruct your browser to refuse cookies at any time. If you choose to have your browser refuse cookies, you will not be able to use some areas of our site.

We may also use “Web beacons” or “clear GIFs” which are small, invisible images that may be used on our site or in emails relating to our site to collect certain information about activity on our site. In addition, when you view a video on our site, a third party may also set a “flash cookie” on your computer. Removing and rejecting browser cookies does not necessarily affect third party flash cookies used in connection with our sites.

Online Advertisements

From time to time, we may run online advertisements on third-party websites to attract visitors to our site or to alert our supporters to special opportunities. Our advertising partners may use cookies and clear GIFs on this site and on the third-party sites on which our ads appear, which allow the advertising partner to track certain information about user behavior, such as “click-stream data.” Any use of information by an advertising partner would be governed by their terms of use and privacy policy, so be sure to be familiar with these policies prior to responding to online advertisements.

Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Other Third-Party Social Networking Sites

Empowered Women may maintain an active presence on several social networks. Any information we collect from you on those sites will be governed by the privacy policies governing those social networks. Except as prohibited by those sites, we may use any personally identifiable information we collect from or about you from those sites in the manner described in this Policy.

Security

Information submitted via the Internet, including through a web page or email is subject to interception or incorrect routing, and the Internet is not a fully secure communications channel. Please consider this prior to submitting any information to us via this website.

Certain sections of this site may have heightened security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information you have provided. The security measures used on this site to protect any available online pages include, but are not limited to, industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, Verisign certificates, firewalls, and internal policies to maintain the security of stored data. While we follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100 percent secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
