Your access to some services and content may be password protected. In such case, we advise that you do not disclose your password to anyone. In addition, we recommend you sign out of password-protected services at the end of your session.

USE OF COOKIES

Visitors should be aware that non-personal information and data may be automatically collected by the Parentis Health website through the use of “cookies.” “Cookies” are small text files a website can use to recognize repeat visitors, facilitate the visitor’s ongoing access to, and use of, the site, and allow a site to track usage behavior and compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements. Cookies are not programs that come onto a visitor’s system and damage files. Generally, cookies work by assigning a unique number to the visitor that has no meaning outside the assigning site. If a visitor does not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows the visitor to deny or accept the cookie feature. Parentis Health uses “cookie” technology only to obtain non-personal information from its online visitors in order to improve visitors’ online experience and facilitate their visit within our site.

AUTOMATIC INFORMATION

When you visit a website, you disclose certain information, such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address and the time of your visit. This Site, like many other sites, records this basic information about visits to this site.

LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES AND SERVICES

Parentis Health’s website may be linked to other sites and services that are not maintained by Parentis Health. These websites have their own privacy policies, which you should review prior to visiting them.

OUR SAFEGUARD

The safety and security of your online experience is of the utmost concern to us. We ensure the appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures are in place to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect online.

CREDIT CARD SAFETY

Donations

When you make a donation through this site, we may collect your credit card number or other payment account number (for example, your checking account and routing numbers, PayPal account number), billing address and other information related to such donation (collectively, “Payment Information”) from you. We will use the Payment Information that you provide to receive and fulfill your Parentis Health Foundation donation. By providing your Payment Information, you are authorizing us to give that information to third parties as necessary to confirm and fulfill your donation (for example, to process your credit card or payment account number and to send you confirmation of your donation). We will retain your Payment Information for a length of time reasonably necessary to process any future transactions related to your donation. If you accept certain third party offers that are marketed through this site, we will pass your relevant Payment Information directly to those specific third parties.

Children under 18 need parent/guardian permission to use a credit card to make online donations.

SECURITY

Protecting the safety of your credit card information is also important to us. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect the security of your credit card information as it is transmitted to us. SSL is the industry standard in internet encryption technology, which is a highly sophisticated method of scrambling data as it travels from your computer to our website servers. We also encrypt your credit card number when we store your donation and/or pledge.

To make sure you are accessing our secure server before you submit personal financial information, look at the upper left-hand corner or lower left-hand corner of your browser. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending upon your browser), then SSL is active. To double-check for security, look at the URL or Address line of your browser. If you have accessed a secure server, the first characters of the address in that line should change from “http” to “https.”

It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
