Rainbopedia respects the privacy of visitors to its Web site. Rainbopedia strongly believes that if electronic commerce and online activities are to flourish, consumers must be assured that information provided online is used responsibly and appropriately. To protect online privacy, Rainbopedia has implemented the following policy.
About the Information We Collect
Most of the data and information we collect through our Web site is used only to help Rainbopedia achieve its mission of strengthening the LGBT community, building the organizations that serve LGBT people, and working towards a world in which diversity is valued and anti-LGBT discrimination does not exist. It is our policy to collect and store only personal information that our donors and grantees knowingly provide.
From Casual Web Site Visitors and General Users
We do not collect any personal information from users browsing our Web site. When you use the public areas of our Web site you are doing so anonymously. We do collect aggregate use information, such as the number of hits (visits) per page. We use aggregate data for internal and marketing purposes, but we don’t collect any personally identifying information.
From Our Grantees, Donors, and Other Customers
If while visiting our Web site you make a donation, register for an event, submit a technical assistance question, or request other information, you will be asked to provide certain information. In all cases this information is submitted voluntarily. In most cases, Rainbopedia asks such visitors to provide their name, address, telephone, and e-mail. If you’re making a donation, you may be asked for credit card information in order to complete your donation.
Our donor list is not for sale. When you visit our Web site or become a donor of Rainbopedia, your name and mailing information will not be sold to a commercial organization.
Credit Card Account Information
Rainbopedia utilizes secure transaction methods (SSL) when collecting credit card information over the Internet. Rainbopedia does not disclose credit card account information provided by its donors.
If you suspect that we have handled your personal information in a manner that doesn’t comply with this privacy statement, please contact us by emailing eric @ lmnoplanet.com.
Privacy and the Links on Our Web Site
Providing the public with information about philanthropic opportunities, grants, technical assistance, and leadership development through our Web site is an essential part of Rainbopedia efforts to carry out its mission.
Links IN to www.rainbopedia.org
We welcome links to any part of our Web site from other nonprofits, government agencies, and others who wish to help extend our mission into the nonprofit sector. We ask that you contact us to let us know of your intentions to link to our site, and indicate the purpose of the link. No link may present or display a product or activity in a way that states or implies Rainbopedia’s endorsement. Rainbopedia does not endorse any commercial organizations or products.
Rainbopedia’s Web site features links to other nonprofit organization sites and corporate sponsors of Rainbopedia. We do not routinely “out-link” to private, commercial, or other similar Web sites, other than current sponsors of Rainbopedia programs and services. However, on a case-by-case basis, we will consider requests from such groups or persons to out-link to their Web sites. Rainbopedia will grant such requests only where it is determined that such links will clearly support our mission of strengthening the LGBT community, building the organizations that serve LGBT people, and working towards a world in which diversity is valued and anti-LGBT discrimination does not exist, and where we have concluded that such links will not in any way jeopardize our reputation, independence, objectivity, mission, or ability to serve the LGBT community.
From time to time, Rainbopedia also may decide on its own, not based on any request, to out-link to private, commercial, or other Web sites. The same criteria described above will apply. Such links may be short or long-term, at the discretion of the organization.
To be considered for out-links from www.rainbopedia.org, contact eric @ lmnoplanet.com.
Donations made through rainbopedia.org are not refundable. However, if for some reason there is an error on your credit card, please contact eric @ lmnoplanet.com.
