Your privacy is critically important to us. At Support! International Foundation (SIF), we have a few fundamental principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
- We aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.
If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.
SIF operates SupportIntlFoundation.org. It is SIF’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
Like most website operators, SIF collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. SIF’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how SIF’s visitors use its website. From time to time, SIF may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
SIF also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. SIF only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to SIF’s website choose to interact with SIF in ways that require SIF to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that SIF gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with SIF are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, SIF collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with SIF. SIF does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
SIF may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its website. For instance, SIF may monitor the most popular posts on SupportIntlFoundation.org and may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, SIF does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
SIF discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on SIF’s behalf or to provide services available at SIF’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. SIF will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, SIF discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when SIF believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SIF, third parties or the public at large. SIF takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If SIF, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that SIF goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of SIF may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
