Privacy Policy

This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their ‘Personally Identifiable Information’ (PII) is being used online. PII, as described in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

What personally identifiable information is collected?

GEORGIA STAND-UP members, volunteers and individuals who sign up to receive GEORGIA STAND-UP’s e-communications voluntarily provide us with contact information (such as name, phone number, zip code, address and e-mail address). We may use this information for specific, limited purposes. You may always “opt out,” either now or at any time in the future, if you do not wish to receive our messages.

Third-Party Disclosure

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personally Identifiable Information.

How Do We Protect Your Information?

  • ​We do not use vulnerability scanning and/or scanning to PCI standards.

  • We only provide articles and information. We never ask for credit card numbers.

  • We do not use Malware Scanning.

Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of people who have special access rights to such systems and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive/credit information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. We implement a variety of security measures when a user enters, submits, or accesses their information to maintain the safety of your personal information.

For your convenience we may store your credit card information longer than 30 days in order to expedite future orders, and to automate the billing process.

How your information may be used

Your personal information may be used to provide you with personalized service; to send e-mail alerts to you; to answer your requests and other, similar purposes, consistent with GEORGIA STAND-UP’s work and mission. You may choose to opt out at any time, which will cease all communications from us. We may also use your information to track visitor traffic on our website. This lets us see which of our features are the most popular so we can better serve our users’ needs. It also lets us provide aggregate data about our traffic (not identifying you personally, but showing how many visitors used which features, for example) to outside parties.

Email privacy

GEORGIA STAND-UP does not provide, sell, or rent email addresses to anyone outside the organization.

 
Cookies

GEORGIA STAND-UP may use “cookie” messages to automatically help provide better services. “Cookies” remind us who you are and your preferences for our website based on what you’ve done and told us before. The “cookie” is placed in your computer and is read when you come back to our website. “Cookies” let us take you to the information and features you’re particularly interested in. They also let us track your usage on GEORGIA STAND-UP’s website, so we know which parts of our sites are most popular. You can reject “cookies” or cancel them by instructing your web browser accordingly.
