Our Commitment to Privacy
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.
The Information We Collect
This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the Action for Children website. On some pages, you can search for child care, make requests, financially support events, or make a donation. The types of personal information collected at these pages are:
- Email address
- Phone number
- Credit/Debit Card Information
The Way We Use Information
We use the information you provide about yourself only to complete your request. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete your request. You can register on our website to receive newsletters and emailed information. We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not shared with outside parties.
We use non-identifying and aggregate information to improve our services and better design our website. For example, we may provide data about X number of individuals visiting a certain area of our website, or that Y number of families in a particular area of central Ohio requested child care near their home, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to personally to identify individuals.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to those described above without also providing you with an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
Our Commitment to Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
