General Policy

This privacy policy was created in order to demonstrate Safe & Sound’s commitment to the privacy of our website users. This policy explains what type of information is collected by Safe & Sound’s website, and how this information is used. The collection of donor information is governed by our Donor Privacy Policy.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Safe & Sound collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Safe & Sound’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Safe & Sound’s visitors use its website.

Safe & Sound also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in users and for users leaving comments. Safe & Sound only discloses logged-in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-identifying Information

Certain visitors to Safe & Sound’s website choose to interact with Safe & Sound in ways that require Safe & Sound to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Safe & Sound gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with Safe & Sound are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Safe & Sound collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Safe & Sound. Safe & Sound does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Safe & Sound may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, Safe & Sound may monitor the most popular posts on and may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Safe & Sound does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-identifying Information

Safe & Sound discloses potentially personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Safe & Sound’s behalf or to provide services available at Safe & Sound’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Safe & Sound will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Safe & Sound discloses potentially personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Safe & Sound believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Safe & Sound, third parties or the public at large. Safe & Sound takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying information.
