I C THAT Respects Your Privacy
Information Collection and Use
Our Site uses forms in which you give us contact information (including your name, address, telephone number, and email address) so you can request information about our programs, provide financial or other support to our activities, and make program suggestions. Should you choose to contribute financially by means other than cash or check, we may request information concerning credit card or bank account numbers should we need that information to process your donation. We receive and store any information you enter on our Site or give us in any other way, including through email, telephone, or other communications with us. We use your information to contact you regarding our programs, facilities, and financial needs. If you would rather not receive this information, please see the “Updating Your Information” section below on how to change your preferences. We may also use your information to present information about our partners or affiliates. We use information gathered about you from our Site statistics (for example, your IP address) to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Site. We also gather broad demographic information from this data to help us improve our Site and make your browsing experience more enjoyable. This is not linked to any personally identifiable information, except as necessary to prevent fraud or abuse on our system. This Site also contains links to other websites. Unfortunately, I C THAT is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such sites.
We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
We use emails to communicate with you and to send information that you have requested. We also provide email links, as on our “Contact Us” page, to allow you to contact us directly. We strive to promptly reply to your messages. The information you send to us may be stored and used to improve this Site and our products, or it may be reviewed and discarded.
Third Party Service Providers
We may at times provide information about you to third parties to provide various services on our behalf, such as processing credit card payments, conducting surveys, performing analyses of our programs or customer demographics, and customer relationship management. We will only share information about you that is necessary for the third party to provide the requested service. These companies are prohibited from retaining, sharing, storing or using your personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
We use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about use of this Site, such as how often users visit the Site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this Site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this Site, rather than your name or other identifying information. Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this Site. This cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google, Inc. The information generated by the cookie will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. We use the information received from Google Analytics only to improve services on this Site. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information.
Supplementation of Information
In order to provide certain services to you, we may on occasion supplement the personally identifiable information you submit to us with information from third party sources (e.g., information from our strategic partners, service providers, or the United States Postal Service). We do this to enhance our ability to serve you, to tailor our products and services to you, and to offer you opportunities to purchase products or services that we believe may be of interest to you.
From time-to-time, we may provide you with the opportunity to participate in surveys. If you choose to participate, we may request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose the requested information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and address), and demographic information (such as zip code and age level ). We use this information to monitor site traffic, and to personalize our Site. We may use a third party service provider to conduct these surveys. When we do, that company will be prohibited from using our users’ personally identifiable information for any other purpose. We will not share the personally identifiable information you provide through a survey with other third parties unless we give you prior notice and choice.
If a user elects to use our referral service to inform a friend about our Site, we ask the user for the friend’s name and email address. I C THAT will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit our Site. I C THAT stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email.
If a user elects to join our mailing list, we ask for the user’s name and email address on our “Contact Us” page for the purpose of sending them periodic electronic newsletters and announcements about the activities at I C THAT. The user may safely unsubscribe from our mailing list at anytime by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any of our email messages.

Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement
We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including without limitation subpoenas), to protect our property and rights or the property and rights of a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we consider to be illegal or unethical. We will also share your information to the extent necessary to comply with ICANN’s rules, regulations and policies. To the extent we are legally permitted to do so, we will take reasonable steps to notify you in the event that we are required to provide your personal information to third parties as part of legal process.
