How Do We Collect and Use Your Information?
WP collects two types of information from Site users:
1. Personally identifiable information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions, such as email and online registration and/or donation forms. Personally identifiable information means any information that may be used to identify you, including but not limited to your name, home address, telephone number, or e-mail address. The types and amount of personally identifiable information collected will vary depending on the nature of your activity on the Site and the Site service(s) you register for.
To help us collect information about traffic on the Site, we have enabled the Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting feature. GoogleAnalytics mainly uses first-party cookies (i.e. cookies related only to the Site) to report on visitor interactions to the Site. These cookies are used to store non-personally identifiable information. For more information, please visit Google's website. You can opt out of this feature by incorporating Google Analytics’ Opt-Out Browser Add-on, found here. The browser add-on is available for most modern browsers. Note that this opt-out browser will prevent visitor information from being sent to Google Analytics but will not prevent information from being sent to the Site and/or any other web analytics services.
Users of the Site are solely responsible for all messages and other material that they upload, post, email, transmit and/or otherwise make available through forums on the Site. These forums include but are not limited to Voices Rising, Resource Exchange, Resource Library, Events, Groups and Programs and other forums that may be viewed by visitors to the Site. Be aware that personally identifiable information that you transmit online may be viewed and used by others. WP is unable to control third party access to and use of your personal information, and by using the Site and voluntarily disclosing such information, you assume the risk that such information may be viewed and used by third parties.
