Information We Collect Automatically on Our Website
Like most organizations, Arise collects non-personally identifiable data in an aggregated and anonymous form when you use our website. This data may include your IP, domain, URLs visited and the date/time you visited them. We may use this information to generate aggregate reports that summarize our website traffic, which we use to improve our site and its usability for our visitors. We do not attempt to track individual users, and we do not link the web log information to any other database with the purpose of identifying individual website users.
Arise does not collect personal information about website visitors without their consent. In cases when such information is requested to provide a service or respond to an inquiry, visitors only need to provide the minimal information necessary to interact with us. Typically, personal information is collected to allow us to respond to inquiries and requests, or to allow you to register for events, to make online donations or to register for informational electronic mailing lists or databases.
It is our policy never to share, trade, sell or otherwise disclose personal information to third parties without a person’s informed consent except (a) where required by law (e.g. through subpoena, warrant or other legal process), or (b) to third-party service providers that host services that we use in our interactions with you, such as event registration services, email distribution providers or online donation processing tool providers. We work to ensure that these companies are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose. When requested, where possible and when not forbidden by law, Arise will delete personal information from current operational systems.
Arise has safeguards in place to protect the information that is under our control. We use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving sensitive personal and financial data from our site. Please note, however, that security breaches can occur even if reasonable steps are taken to prevent such breaches. For example, we cannot guarantee that information provided through our sites will not be accessed without authorization on our servers or intercepted while being transmitted to us over the internet. Please contact us if you believe there has been any breach of the security of our sites.
We may make use of web beacons. Pages of our website and the HTML-based emails and newsletters we send to you may contain small electronic files that permit us to count the users who have visited a particular page or opened an email and clicked through links. Web beacons allow us to collect information about you when you open our emails, such as your IP address, your browser or email client and other details. We use these tools to help improve our website and other materials.
Some of the purposes for which cookies are installed also may require the user’s consent. Where the installation of cookies is based on consent, such consent can be freely withdrawn at any time following the instructions provided in this document.
