1. How Does This Policy Relate to Use of the Site?
This Policy is part of and incorporated into the Terms of Use (“Terms of Use”), which is the contract between you and the Foundation governing use of the Site. Provisions of the Terms of Use affect this Policy, so, unless you have already done so, please review  such Terms of Use prior to using the Site. Please note that, under the Terms of Use in effect, your use of this Site constitutes your agreement to the Terms of Use and this Policy. Terms used but not defined in this Policy have the definitions ascribed them in the Terms of Use.

This Policy is supplemented by additional policies relevant to particular activities, and each of the supplemental policies is incorporated into this Policy. for example, if a supplemental policy is included on the Site with respect to a particular activity, or if one is included on a Third Party site relating to the mission of the Foundation, those supplemental policies will also apply and are also incorporated.

2. Information We Collect That You Do Not Provide
Sometimes we may collect personal information without you having to enter any information on the Site. For example, we may receive personal information from public sources or from Third Parties (which we may combine with other information from other sources), and the Foundation may collect anonymous demographic information which is not unique to you such as your zip code, age, and gender.

In addition, we may collect some information automatically from visitors to the Site, for example through the use of “cookies”, “web beacons”, and other tracking mechanisms in order to help personalize your online experience of our site and for other reasons. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued that cookie to you. 

We may collect at least the following (though the foregoing list is not exclusive): your domain name and host for Internet access; the Internet address of the site from which you came; the date and time of your access; your computer’s IP address and information about its operating system, browser and host; the date and time you access the Site and the pages you visit. This information is used by the Foundation for various reasons, including to obtain general statistics regarding the use of the Site.

If you do not want to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject them. However, if you turn cookies off, you may not have access to some of the Site’s services and features. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you access the Site. We also may employ web beacons from Third Parties to help us compile aggregated statistics regarding the operations of our site. We prohibit web beacons on our site from being used by third parties to collect or access your personal information.

3. Information We Collect That You Do Provide
It is always your choice, or the choice of anyone acting for you, whether to provide personal information. However, some personal information must be provided to participate in certain programs or activities (such as to apply for a grant), so the decision not to provide information might limit or eliminate certain functions of the Site or the ability to participate. Other information is up to your good judgment, e.g., do not provide personal information about yourself that could be misused by others in a chat room, bulletin board, blog or similar forum, as appropriate, and do not provide personal information about others without their permission. The kinds of personal information we tend to request about you or others include but are not limited to your name, email address, native language, organization name, job title, city, state / province, region, age, locations for internet access and devices used. Additional information about what we collect is available in any supplemental privacy policies for particular activities.

4. Information You Provide About Others
Do not supply personal information about others unless you are authorized or required to do so by applicable law or contract and you consent to the Terms of Use (including this Policy and supplemental policies) on behalf of yourself and the “Data Subject” (the person about whom you supply personal information). Before supplying personal information about others (except as otherwise allowed by law or contract), you must make available for the Data Subject’s review, and obtain their written consent to, said Terms of Use and policies. By submitting any personal information about others, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to do so and that you did all of the foregoing before submitting the information. If applicable law allows you to supply the information without doing the foregoing, you represent and warrant that you have abided by that law and that it allows us to receive and Disclose (as defined in Section 5 hereunder) the information under this Policy without any further action on our part. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold us harmless against any failure by you to comply with this paragraph.

The Foundation works with Third Parties on certain programs, and often those Third Parties own and/or are responsible for that program’s web site. In those cases, if you provide personal information, you will be giving it to a Third Party and their privacy policy will apply. You agree that if a Third-Party provides it to us then we may apply our Policy to what we receive.

You should review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from the Foundation so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. The Foundation is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the Foundation and the Foundation family of Web sites.

5. What We Generally Do with Personal Information Collected

Some activities allow certain updates. 

We keep personal information for as long as we think is necessary or advisable and we reserve the right to retain it to the full extent not prohibited by law. We may discard personal information in our discretion, so you should retain your own records, and not rely upon our storage of any personal information or other data

7. Information Security

8. Your Particular Consents
In addition to consenting to the Terms of Use, including this Policy (and any relevant supplemental policies), the Foundation is interested in letting you know about, and receiving your particular consent to, a few activities relating to personal information that will help us to deal with personal information that is Disclosed in furtherance of our mission, operations and programs. These are described immediately below.

Consent to International Transfer and Disclosure of Personal Information. Although our programs and activities are only based in the United States of America, it may become necessary, in our fulfillment of our obligations, to share your personal information with a foreign entity. You agree that the Foundation and those with whom we share personal information (“Recipients”) may Disclose and transfer your personal information worldwide (including outside the European Economic Area, if you are based in the European Economic Area) for any purpose relating to our or their mission, operations, programs, or otherwise that is not allowed or prohibited by this Policy.

Consent to Electronic Notice If There is a Security Breach: If we or a Recipient is required to provide notice of unauthorized access or other invasion of certain security systems, you agree that we (or they) may do so when required (or voluntarily) by posting notice on our Site or sending notice to any email address we have for you, in our (or their) good faith discretion. You agree that notice to you will count as notice to others for whom you are acting, and agree to pass the notice on to them.

9. Minors Under 13 Years of Age
We do not want to collect information from children. Do not provide any personal information unless you are at least 13 years of age, and please caution your children not to provide any.

11. Amendments
We may change what we do and how and why we Disclose data periodically—this Policy describes what we currently envision, but that will change as we change. You agree that this Policy amends and replaces any previous privacy policy (or policies). We may further amend all or part of this Policy in the same way that we make amendments to our Terms of Use and such amended versions will be posted on this page.

12. Information About Enforcement of Our Policy
