Whenever this information is collected and transferred over the Internet to a secure server, it is encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, the industry standard security technology that is designed to protect sensitive information. If you make a donation, your payment information (e.g., credit or debit card type, number, and expiration date) and related information (e.g., address) may be collected by us and/or our third-party payment processors. Your credit card information will only be used to process your donation and will not be used for any other purpose.

d. Usage Data and Technical Information

 

We gather certain broad information about Website use, including the number of unique visitors, the frequency with which they visit, and the programs and services preferred.  We look at the data in summary form, rather than on an individual basis.  We gather this information so we can learn how many people visit our site, see which pages are the most and least viewed, identify which Web sites are referring visitors to our site, and related information.  The data helps us determine the extent to which visitors use certain parts of our Web site.  Thus, we use this information to help us in restructuring our site to better meet the needs of our constituency and to better serve our constituency as an effective organization. In connection with these activities we may use some of the below mentioned tools:

 

​Cookies.  We use a standard technology called a “cookie” to collect information about how the site is used.  Cookies are small strings of text stored on your computer’s hard drive by a Web server.  We use session cookies to identify your computer during a particular session, i.e., when you sign into the site or post a comment.  If you create a user account or otherwise join our Website, these cookies enable you to store your password for fast logon and other conveniences.  We do not store personal or sensitive information in cookies.  Cookies cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive, pass on computer viruses, or capture your e-mail address.  Most Web browsers provide you the ability to accept or decline cookies, as well as to be warned each time a cookie is being sent.  If you choose to decline cookies, however, you may not be able to take advantage of all aspects of our Website.

 

IP Addresses.We collect and analyze traffic on our Website by keeping track of the IP addresses of our visitors.  An IP address is the unique numeric identifier assigned to each computer browser accessing the Internet.  An IP address, by itself, cannot identify you personally.  However, when combined with other information provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), your IP address can be used to identify the computer originating a message.

If you access the Services via a Third-Party Platform account (e.g., by logging in to the Services using your Third-Party Platform account credentials) and/or integrate your account with your Third-Party Platform account, we may collect certain information from the Third-Party Platform, such as your username and other information you provided to the Third-Party Platform in connection with your account (e.g., name, country, date of birth, gender, and e-mail address).

VI. DATA COLLECTION FROM CHILDREN

 

This website complies with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998. We do not knowingly contact or collect personal information from children under the age of 13 without appropriate parental notice and consent, and our Services are not intended to solicit information of any kind from children under the age of 13. If we are informed that we have unintentionally received personal information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete that information.

VII. SECURITY

 

While no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure from intrusion, we maintain reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your information. However, it is possible that third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications despite our efforts to prevent this, and we therefore make no guarantees regarding the security of user information.

The Services may be linked to, rely on, and/or be integrated with websites, applications, interfaces, services, and/or platforms operated by third-party companies, including service providers and Third-Party Platforms. Level Up is not responsible for the privacy practices of any websites, applications, interfaces, services, and platforms operated by such third parties that are linked to, rely on, and/or are integrated with the Services. Once you leave the Services via such a link and access a third-party application, interface, service, or platform, including Third-Party Platforms and websites operated by service providers, you should check the applicable privacy policy of such third party to determine, among other things, how they will handle any personally identifiable or other information that they may collect from you.

 

 

IX. PRIVACY POLICY CHANGES

 

From time to time, we may modify this Privacy Policy to reflect industry initiatives, third-party requirements, or changes in the law, technology, our information collection and use practices, or the features and functionality of the Services. Such modifications shall be effective upon posting. When we modify this Privacy Policy in a material way, the date of the modification will be posted on our website together with the updated Privacy Policy. Your continued use of the Services after we post a revised Privacy Policy (and, where appropriate, notify you of this change) signifies your acceptance of the revised Privacy Policy. It is therefore important that you review this Privacy Policy regularly to ensure you are updated as to any changes. We may also seek your affirmative consent to the terms of the updated Privacy Policy.
