Information Collection and Use
The W. Alton Jones Foundation is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. The foundation does not have a regular newsletter, however, filling out the Join Us form will add your name to a list of people interested in following some of the foundation's activities. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others. Currently, we do not send out a message to confirm your submission to the database. If you wish to be removed from the database, simply send the Webmaster an e-mail with this request. The only place on this site where personally identifiable information is collected is on the Join Us page. In the near future, the foundation will begin sending out an electronic and paper newsletter, by filling out the Join Us page you will be added to the list of recipients for this newsletter. If you provide an e-mail address you will get the newsletter electronically, if you do not have an e-mail address you will be added to the list of recipients of the newsletter sent by the USPS.
Grantees of the foundation may be contacted on occasion by the Webmaster when the foundation needs to ask for clarification, corrections, or make announcements related to the Web site.
Web Site Statistics
Statistics kept on this site aggregate usage information for site design, navigation, and content evaluation purposes. These statistics do not reveal personal information. To gather the most useful statistics the software used to collect statistics (currently LiveStats) places a cookie on your computer. This cookie is only used to count the number of unique versus repeat visitors to the site.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie by this site is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the aggregate statistics we gather to track usage and make improvements to our site will be diminished.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We do not make any attempt to link IP addresses to personally identifiable information.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that the W. Alton Jones Foundation is not responsible for the content (errors of omissions) or privacy practices of any of these sites.
This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. This Web site takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the Web site, your information is protected both online and off-line. While we do not currently use a secure page to collect the information on the Join Us page, we will implement this soon.
If you have any questions about the security at our Web site, you can send an email to the Webmaster.
If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of this site, or your dealings with this Web site, you can contact the Webmaster.
