Our Commitment To Privacy
The ASMBS Foundation, Inc. and Obesity Action Coalition, Inc. respect the privacy of our Walk from Obesity Participants and Donors. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available from every page of the Walk from Obesity Web site.
Information Collection and Use
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. This information, which does not identify individual users, is aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the site, pages viewed, etc. and is used to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to improve the content of our site.
Printable forms are available for those wishing to register for, or donate to, the Walk from Obesity who do not wish to do so online.
If you make a donation or register for an event, you may provide contact information (like name, email, and address) and financial information (like credit card number and expiration date). All credit card information is handled in a highly secure manner, and is not retained beyond the time of credit card processing. Your contact information is used to send you requested materials or a donation receipt (if you have made a donation), and to keep you informed about our program work. If we have trouble processing a transaction, this contact information may also be used to get in touch with you.
Your contact information including name, address and e-mail are shared between the two organizations (ASMBS Foundation, Inc. and Obesity Action Coalition, Inc.) but are not sold, distributed or provided to others. You may opt-out of any mailings from the Walk from Obesity, ASMBS Foundation, Inc. and/or Obesity Action Coalition, Inc. by sending your request to opt-out including your name, address and e-mail to: 100 SW 75th St, Suite 201, Gainesville, FL 32607, or send your request by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Walk from Obesity participants automatically receive the Walk from Obesity E-Newsletter by email. Website visitors may also sign up to receive the newsletter. Each email sent contains an easy, automated way for you to cease receiving e-newsletters from us. If you wish to do this, simply follow the unsubscribe links at the end of any email.
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.
Our Commitment To Data Security
The Walk from Obesity Web site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under our control. Any forms submitted online that contain personal financial information are submitted via a secure server.
The data housed at Walk from Obesity is kept on secure servers that are not accessible via the Internet or dial-up networks. These computers are protected by extensive network security with very limited access by select personnel charged with protecting the privacy of your records.
The Walk from Obesity Web site contains external links to information we believe may be of interest. While we try to link only to Web sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the content or the privacy practices employed by other sites.
