Terms of Use & Privacy Policy

As of October 2022

 

What information do we collect?

We receive, collect and store any information you enter on our website or provide us in another way. We do so to maintain accurate information about enrollment and donors. We rely heavily on our generous donors and we maintain a list of people who support our community by donating or volunteering at Connections. We respect your privacy and confidentiality and do not sell, rent or share donor information with outside parties other than as noted below for transaction and communication processing.

 

In addition, we collect the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; login; e-mail address; password; computer and connection information and donation/purchase history. We may use software tools to measure and collect session information, including page response times, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information, and methods used to browse away from the page. We also collect personally identifiable information (including name, email, password, communications); payment details (including credit card information), comments and feedback.

 

How do we collect information? 

When you conduct a transaction on our website, as part of the process, we collect personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address. Your personal information will be used for the specific reasons stated above only.

 

Why do we collect information?

We collect such information for the following purposes:

  • To provide and operate our services;

  • To communicate with our community about progress, events, school news and promotional information;

  • To provide our community with ongoing assistance and technical support;

  • To enable our own event management services;

  • To create aggregated statistical data and other aggregated and/or inferred non-personal information, which we may use to improve our services; 

  • To comply with any applicable laws and regulations.

We do not sell, rent or share that information with third parties for marketing purposes, other than fulfillment of our own communications and outreach. 

 

Each year in our annual report, we publish a list of our donors to thank donors for helping to support our mission and work. Donors can opt out of being included in this list by emailing us at info@connectedpb.com and letting us know of your preference. 

 

Third-party integrations

Our website is hosted on the Wix.com platform and we use well respected donor facilitation and management systems such as Bloomerang, Classy and Give Lively. Through those services, your data may be stored in their databases for our use. They store data on secure servers behind a firewall and do not share information with other parties. 

All direct payment gateways offered by Wix.com and used by our company adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

We may contact you to notify you regarding your account, to troubleshoot problems you have reported, to resolve a dispute, to collect funds, to poll your opinions through surveys or questionnaires, to send updates about our school, or as otherwise necessary related to our terms of use, applicable national laws, and any agreement we may have with you. For these purposes we may contact you via email, telephone, text messages and postal mail.
