Effective Date: November 15, 2014
Susan Horning Advocacy is committed to preserving your privacy and safeguarding your sensitive information. The following statement describes the general information-gathering and usage practices of our web site and service.
Collecting Personal Information
When you submit an inquiry or subscribe to our eNewsletter we collect your personal and organizational information such as: name, address, email address, organization name, etc. We may contact a client to verify information. My company does not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
Susan Horning Advocacy provides links to other web sites as a resource for those who are interested in additional opportunities. We encourage you to view their privacy policies as well. Any information you share with these web sites is subject to their policies and practices and is independent of Susan Horning Advocacy.
Susan Horning Advocacy uses "session cookies" while a visitor is using our website. "Cookies" are bits of information that are stored by your browser on your hard drive. We use "session cookies" so that we can properly verify a customer's identity as they move from one page to the next. For online, we also use "session cookies" and "persistent cookies" in addition to verifying personal information, so that we can provide secure access to customer information. These session cookies are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Web log files:
Like most web site administrators we use log files that record information such as Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and page navigation. We gather this information to track web site visitor movement in the aggregate, and to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Our goal in gathering this information is to learn how our customers and the public are using our service. IP addresses that are recorded by our log files are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Protecting personal information:
Susan Horning Advocacy takes every precaution to protect information. When you submit sensitive information via our web site, the information is protected both online and off-line. When a form asks to enter sensitive information that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as a form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator, Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked. Please make sure the page is Locked before entering any critical personal information.
While we sometimes use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect client information off-line. All of our information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (our customer service team) are granted access to personally identifiable information. All employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.
