Privacy Policy

Our Commitment to Privacy

Brightpoint For Children knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate you trusting that we will do so carefully and sensibly. To better protect your privacy, we provide this Privacy Policy explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used on this website. The information below explains our policy regarding your privacy and the www.brightpointforchildren.org website. By visiting www.brightpointforchildren.org, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.

What Personally Identifiable Information is Collected on this Site?

When you visit our website, you may provide us with personal information (such as name, address, e-mail address, telephone numbers and/or credit/debit card information) that you knowingly choose to disclose, which is collected on an individual basis for various purposes. These purposes include registering to receive e-mail newsletters or other materials, requesting further information from us about projects and services, donating to us, ordering merchandise, making requests, submitting a form on our website, or simply asking a question. We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. We ask for personal information so that we can fulfill your request and return your message. This information is retained and used in accordance with existing laws, rules, regulations, and other policies. Brightpoint For Children does not collect personal information from you unless you provide it to us. If you choose not to provide any of that information, we may not be able to fulfill your request or complete your order, but you will still be free to browse the other sections of the websites owned and administered by Brightpoint For Children. This means that you can visit our site without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself.

The Way We Use Information

When you supply information about yourself for a specific purpose, we use the information for only that purpose (such as to provide the service or information you have requested). For example, you may be asked to give us individual information to receive information, to make a donation, to purchase merchandise, or to apply for a job. Similarly, we use information you provide about yourself or someone else when placing a merchandise order only to ship the merchandise and to confirm delivery. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order. You can register with our website if you would like to receive updates on our new projects and services or on our merchandise. Information you submit on our website will not be used for this purpose unless you fill out the registration form. We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties. Brightpoint For Children does not sell, rent, give-away or share its e-mail addresses or other information with outside sources. Should any material changes be made to the ways in which we use personally identifiable information, Brightpoint For Children will take commercially reasonable measures to obtain e-mail consent from you. We will also post the changes to our use of personally identifiable information on our site at least 30 days prior to a change.

Our Commitment to Data Security

Personally identifiable information is stored on our server and is not publicly accessible. Further, personally identifiable information is only accessed by Brightpoint For Children personnel on a "need to know" basis. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Additionally, sensitive data such as credit card numbers are encrypted using SSL and other industry standard measures, to provide an additional level of security.

Changes to this Privacy Statement

Changing business practices and circumstances may require that we make changes to this privacy policy from time to time. Any changes will be reflected on this website. Brightpoint For Children reserves the right to modify its website and/or this Privacy Policy at any time and users are deemed to be apprised of and bound by any such modifications. Our goal is to provide all services to visitors to the Brightpoint For Children website in an accessible, efficient and friendly manner while maintaining their privacy.
