The Indiana 4‑H Foundation respects your privacy.
Information collected by the Indiana 4‑H Foundation about its users is used internally by authorized personnel of the Indiana 4‑H Foundation and its affiliates for three main purposes:
- We may collect information to analyze which areas, features, and products our users like the most and find most helpful, so we can continue to improve the site.
- We may collect information in order to personalize the site for our users (for example, it allows us to recommend products or features based on what you have liked in the past).
- We may collect information to enable our users to participate in sweepstakes, contests, services, and other activities on our site.
On occasion, the Indiana 4‑H Foundation may also share non-personal, summary data about our users with unrelated third parties. However, the Indiana 4‑H Foundation will not share personally identifiable data about any particular user with unrelated third parties unless the user has specifically agreed to share it.
Please be advised that the Indiana 4‑H Foundation currently archives information it collects on its visitors.
Please note that if you provide any information on your own or directly to parties who provide service to our network or to Internet sites other than the Indiana 4‑H Foundation(even if these sites display the Indiana 4‑H Foundation name and logo in addition to their own), different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of any personal information you might give them. We encourage you to investigate and ask questions before disclosing information to third parties.
Sometimes we conduct user surveys to find out how we can improve our site for you. We may share non-personal information about our users with partners or other third parties. For example, we might disclose that a certain percentage of our users are male. We will not sell personal information to or share any personal information with an unrelated third party without your consent.
Your credit card, your personal information, and your password are safe. We use the latest encryption technologies, rigorous password protections, and limits on the number of people who have access to your information, all to guard against unauthorized access to your data.
Limits on our Abilities
Although your privacy is very important to us, in the existing legal regulatory and security environment, we cannot fully ensure that your private communications and other personal information will not be disclosed to third parties. For example, under certain circumstances the government or unrelated third parties might force us to disclose information to them, or third parties might unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Additionally, in the unlikely event we need to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries, we can (and you authorize us to do so) disclose any information about you to private entities and law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate.
