How Second Story Uses the Information it Collects
Second Story uses the information it collects through this site to improve our engagement efforts, to improve our content, and to customize this site’s services, content, and layout. We will not give, share, rent, or sell your personal information collected through this site to third parties unless we are required to do so by law or you have already given us your expressed permission. For example, if you apply for a job we will use your information to run a background check as detailed in the application.
Integrity and Security
Second Story takes your privacy seriously and works to protect the security and integrity of the personal information it collects online through this site. You acknowledge, however, that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while Second Story strives to protect your personal information, Second Story cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to or from this site.
Second Story respects your privacy and does not rent, sell, or exchange your information for any reason.
This information will only be used internally. We collect your personal information to process your donation, keep record of your generosity, and send you our annual appeal. We will only send you our bi-monthly email newsletters and other marketing efforts via email if you “opt-in.” You may opt out at any time.
Second Story may partner with certain organizations to process your donations such as via electronic fund transfers or a credit card transactions. We choose these third-party vendors carefully and trust their security, but we are not liable for their security.
We do not go door-to-door or telemarket to solicit donations.
