TACA Privacy Policy and Donor Privacy Statement

Talk About Curing Autism (TACA) has created this privacy statement to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for TACA.

 

IP Addresses

Your IP address is a number assigned to your computer. We record and use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, log site activity to create statistics, and to administer our website. Your IP address is used to help identify you for fraud prevention. We also use your IP address in the shopping cart system to gather broad demographic information. Although your IP address is logged by our servers, it is not personally identifiable and your visit to our site is anonymous.

 

Personal Data

Our site's Contact form requires users to give us contact information (like their name and email address). Your name and contact information (like your email address and mailing address) is ONLY used by TACA and is not shared with any other entity.

This site contains links to many other sites. TACA is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these outside websites.

 

Confidential Information

If you seek advice or support from TACA via our contact forms, please be advised that we may share some information provided with appropriate experts within the autism community that we consult with such as behaviorists, psychologists, and medical doctors. This is only done to ensure that we are providing accurate information and your personal identity is NEVER disclosed to any expert.

 

Use of Cookies

Our site uses cookies to keep track of your shopping cart. It also uses an order form for customers to request information, products, and services. We collect visitor's contact information (like their email address), and demographic information (like their city, state and zip code). The cart does not collect credit card numbers; buyers are only sharing that information (which is encrypted) with a credit card processor. Contact information from the order form is used to send orders. The customer's contact information is also used to get in touch with the visitor when necessary.

We do not use cookies to retrieve information from your computer. Except for personal information voluntarily provided by you (like in a contact form or registering in our shopping cart), TACA does not use information transferred through cookies for any promotional or marketing purposes. No information of any kind about any user is shared with any third parties.

If your computer is not set to accept cookies, you may find that some parts of site will not function properly, especially our shopping cart.

 

Public Forums

This site links to chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or news groups available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information about you or your family.

 

Security

This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and/or alteration of the information under our control. We gather ordering information on SSL (Secure Socket Layer)-secure order forms that are encrypted as they travel over the Internet. When we receive the information, it is kept in a password-protected database.

 

Choice/Opt-Out

Our site provides users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us. If you have subscribed to our e-newsletter and do not want to receive further editions, please contact us and your email address will be immediately deleted from our database.

 

Use of Information Collected by TACA

TACA may share information as necessary with consultants (like an accountant or attorney) for internal business practices and may divulge personal information if such information is subpoenaed, or if TACA believes that any user has committed unlawful acts, to acts that endanger the health or safety of another user or of the general public. In some situations, we will share your personal information, on a confidential basis, with third parties who perform a particular service on our behalf, such as mailing our printed newsletter.

If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of this site, or your interactions with this website, please contact us.

 

Donor Privacy Statement

TACA is a non-profit 501(c)3 entity. TACA maintains strict donor information privacy policies. We take great care to ensure that unauthorized persons do not compromise your information whether it is submitted by phone, mail or online. Under no circumstances will we share or sell a donor's personal information with anyone else, nor will we send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations. TACA protects all personal information and will not share with any other organization or individual beyond the extent necessary to complete authorized online donations you have initiated.  TACA will not share information with telemarketers, nor do we use telephone marketing to solicit funds.  Phone numbers are only used when necessary to verify information or thank you for your contribution to TACA.
