What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information:
We collect two types of information, Standard Web server traffic pattern information, and information collected through our registration forms. Standard web server traffic pattern information is comprised of general traffic, site usage, and length of stay information which is collected and stored in log files. This type of information is shared externally, if at all, only on an aggregated basis. Our registration forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, email address, format preference (HTML vs. Text), address, interests, and similar information. We use this information to contact you should there be a question about your donation and we also use this information to personalize communications to you to keep you informed about our programs and progress and to seek public support. If you do not wish to receive these communications, or if you would like to change the frequency or types of communications you receive from us, simply write to us at 411 Fifth Avenue, Suite 702, New York, NY 10016, and we will be pleased to respect your wishes. We do not request or store sensitive information from our visitors, such as credit card or social security numbers.

Internet Protocol Address:
We collect an IP address from all visitors to our Site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our Site, analyze trends, track users’ movement, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
