Our Commitment To Privacy
We respect your privacy and want to assure you that safeguarding information about you is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.
The Information We Collect
This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the Mercy Housing website. On some pages, you can make a donation, contact us, and register to receive materials. The types of personal information collected at these pages are:
- Email address
- Phone number
- Credit/Debit Card Information
The Way We Use Information
We use the information you provide about yourself when making a donation to process your gift and to communicate with you about the work of Mercy Housing. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to manage those communications.
You can register with our website if you would like to receive our e-newsletter as well as updates on our current initiatives, event notifications and other relevant information.
We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and properly display information to you. Our web servers record your Internet Protocol (IP) address and the pages you visit while at our site. We use this information for internal tracking purposes, to enhance your experience on our site, to respond to your requests, and to advise you of information about our work.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
Our Commitment To Data Security
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.
Our website uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) security technology to encrypt information on all web pages where personal information is collected. Our SSL pages are certified by Entrust. Entrust SSL digital certificates are trusted by more than 99 percent of all web browsers in use today.
While we take steps to protect your personal information and keep it secure, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure and therefore we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you send to us, and therefore you use our site at your own risk.
Our Commitment To Children's Privacy
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
How You Can Correct Your Information
You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that credibly shows error to firstname.lastname@example.org. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
Mercy Housing also offers visitors and "opt-out" option at any time they wish to cease receiving emails or other information from our organization. If you initially decided to receive information from us, but at a later date wish to remove your information from our database, you can do so by sending an email to email@example.com or by calling us at 303-830-3300. You can also opt out anytime by updating your preferences.
