Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting the privacy and security of visitors to our website. Outlined below is the privacy policy for sglf.org.

Because we care about the safety and privacy of children online, we comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). COPPA and its accompanying FTC regulations establish United States federal law that protects the privacy of children using the Internet. We do not knowingly contact or collect personal information from children under 13. Our site is not intended to solicit information of any kind from children under 13, and we have designed our sites to block our knowing acceptance of information from children under 13 whenever age-related information is requested.

When you make an ecommerce transaction through our site, any credit card information provided is only used to immediately process your transaction. We do not retain your credit card information once the transaction is processed. We have put in place appropriate security measures to protect your personal and financial information. We use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving financial data from our site.

We use log files and Google Analytics to assess the aggregate level of traffic on sglf.org, including what pages people are visiting, and to diagnose any potential problems with the website. This log file does contain an IP address that gives us insight on the general geographic area that visitors are coming from but not information on a specific individual. We do not use log files to track a particular individual's use of our site. All users remain anonymous unless they choose to give us personally identifiable information.

Our site contains opportunities for a visitor to forward documents, photos, and messages to friends and family. Some features of our site may allow you to store addresses for easy retrieval and reuse at a later time. This information is stored for your convenience. We do make use of cookies to personalize and customize your interaction on our site and to provide you with the best possible online experience.

This site may include very small files provided by one or more online advertising networks that help them more precisely to target advertising to users, based on users' activity on sites within those networks. These files do not access or use information by which users can be personally identified. If you wish, you can prevent these files from using non-personal information about you by either deleting the cookie folder in your browser or by putting your browser's Privacy setting higher, but doing so will mean that you will not be presented with advertising that reflects the way that you use our, and other, websites -- and may well adversely affect your experience of websites that use cookies to enhance or personalize that experience. You can find out how to make these changes to your browser at this site: http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/
