If you decide to access linked Third-Party Sites, you do so at your own risk. Once you click on a link connecting you to a Third-Party Site, your use of that site and the collection and use of your personal information at the site will be governed by the Third-Party Site’s terms of use and/or privacy policy, and not by the Terms of Use and/or Privacy Policy of this Site.

ATLANTA FAMILIES’ AWARDS FOR EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION, INC.
NONPROFIT PRIVACY POLICY

Your privacy is of great importance to Atlanta Families’ Awards for Excellence in Education, Inc. (“AFAEE”). As a user of AFAEE’s website, Facebook page, Twitter page or Instagram page, as applicable, (collectively, the “Site”), you are valued by AFAEE, and we will take appropriate measures to protect the personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) provided by and collected from you on the Site, if any, in connection with the functions, products, services and information offered on the Site (the “AFAEE Services”).

I. What Information Does AFAEE Collect About Site Visitors?

At the Site, we do not collect Personal Information from individuals unless they provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly. AFAEE gathers data, such as names, addresses, zip/postal codes, e-mail addresses, etc., only when voluntarily submitted by a visitor. Personal Information that we collect falls into three primary categories:

1. Information that Site Visitors Give Us. We may receive and store the information that you enter at our website, provide to us on a webpage or give to us in any other way. You can always choose not to provide some or all of the information which we request. This information is used solely by AFAEE and other entities in furtherance of AFAEE’s charitable activities.

2. Automatic Information. Whenever you interact with AFAEE, we receive and store certain types of information. For example, we may use “cookies” to obtain information when your web browser accesses our website. A cookie is an alphanumeric identifier, which we transfer to your computer via your Web browser and store on your computer’s hard drive. On most web browsers you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie, and how to turn cookies off.

3. Email Communications. In order to make the email we send you more helpful and relevant to your interests, we receive and store certain types of information. For instance, if your computer supports this functionality, we may receive a confirmation when you open an email we send you. We may also receive a confirmation when you follow a hyperlink from one of our email messages to our website. If you want to stop receiving email from us, simply hit reply and type “unsubscribe” in the subject field or contact us by email at: info@atlantafamilies.org.

II. Does AFAEE Share the Information It Receives?

We are not in the business of selling information about our Site visitors. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you and we treat it with great care and respect. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your data with certain third parties. We will share personally identifiable information with third parties when (i) the person submitting the information authorizes us to share it, (ii) the third-party is performing a function on behalf of AFAEE that is directly related to the operation of the Site or to a service or information provided on the Site, and access to such information is necessary to the performance of such function or to the provision of such services or information being provided, (iii) it is disclosed to entities that perform marketing services on our behalf or to other entities with whom we have joint marketing or other agreements, (iv) it is necessary or we deem it appropriate in connection with a sale of all or substantially all of the assets or business of AFAEE, a sale of stock or equity interests of AFAEE, or the merger of AFAEE into another entity or any consolidation, share exchange, combination, reorganization, or like transaction in which AFAEE is not the survivor, (v) it is necessary to protect and defend the rights or property of AFAEE, (vi) it is necessary to act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of AFAEE customers, visitors to the Site or the public, or (vii) otherwise as we are required or permitted by law.
We occasionally contract with other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including donation processing, website development and maintenance, donor database management and e-commerce. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

III. Access to Information About You

If you desire to review your own personal information, to correct existing information, or to remove your information, please contact AFAEE via email at info@atlantafamilies.org. If you request removal of your personal information, you acknowledge that residual information may continue to reside in AFAEE’s records and archives, but AFAEE will not use that information for commercial purposes. AFAEE reserves the right to maintain your personal information if AFAEE has suspended, limited, or terminated your access to our website for violating the AFAEE Terms of Use.

IV. What Choices Do I Have?

As outlined in this Privacy Policy, you can always choose not to provide information; however, doing so may prevent you from making a donation or accessing other valuable features at or via a link on our website.

V. Links to Third Party Sites

You may be able to access third-party websites through links available on the Site. You understand and agree that your use of such third-party sites will be governed by the privacy policies of those sites and not by this Privacy Policy. AFAEE will not be responsible for the actions of the operators of such third-party websites.

VI. Children

AFAEE does not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13. We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children’s Internet usage and to help enforce our Privacy Policy by instructing their children never to provide information on this Site without their permission.

VII. Notices and Revisions

If you choose to visit the Site, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Privacy Policy. If you have a concern about privacy at the Site, please send an email with a detailed description of your concern to info@atlantafamilies.org. Our activities and Site change constantly. This Privacy Policy may change also. Our use of information that we receive and store is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time of our use of such information. If we decided to change our Privacy Policy, we will post the revised Privacy Policy on the Site. In the event any provision contained in this Privacy Policy conflicts with any provision in any of Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, Data Policy or Community Standards Policy (as amended or modified from time to time, the “Facebook Policies”), the FaceBook Policies shall govern and control with respect to information that we receive via Company’s Facebook page, if any. In the event any provision contained in this Privacy Policy conflicts with any provision in Twitter’s Terms of Service (as amended or modified from time to time, the “Twitter Policy”), the Twitter Policy shall govern and control with respect to information that we receive via Company’s Twitter page, if any.
