The Torch Relay for Children’s Miracle Network, Incorporated
Privacy Policy

The Torch Relay for Children’s Miracle Network, Inc (Torch Relay) is committed to your privacy. Because we gather certain types of information about our donors and participants, we feel you should fully
understand our policy and the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This Privacy Policy discloses our information collection policies and practices. We may
update this Privacy Policy from time to time, so please check this Privacy Policy periodically for changes. The date this Privacy Policy was last updated is stated at the end of this document.

The Personal Information We Collect; How We Collect It and How It Is Used:
The Torch Relay website does not collect any personally identifiable information about our website visitors, other than information that visitors freely enter. The one exception to this is that, like most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, as further discussed below.

Registration Accounts:
You may freely visit our website without being required to provide us with any personal information. However, some requests and features do require that you provide us with some personally identifying information as more particularly described below. Personal information is data that can be used to identify or contact you.

Access to certain areas of the Torch Relay website requires the creation of a sign-in account. There are two types of accounts: those for registered event participants and those who are participant sponsors.

Event registration accounts: Website accounts for registered participants of a Torch Relay event are tied to your event registration. This connects your sign-in account to your name, address, phone number, and e-mail address, as well as to your registration status, transaction history, and donation history.

Participant sponsor accounts: Sign-in accounts for participant sponsors require your name, address, email
address and credit card information used for a donation.

IP Addresses
The IP address of all users who sign-in is logged. This is done to enable us to troubleshoot sign-in or access problems for registered users.

When you visit and interact with the website, third parties with whom we have contracted to provide services for us may collect Internet Protocol addresses (each an "IP Address"), as well as browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and page navigation. An IP Address is a unique identifier number to identify and to communicate with each other on the Internet; your Internet Service Provider automatically assigns an IP Address to the computer that you are using. We gather this information to track website visitor movement in the aggregate, and to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We may use this information to enhance our website or for other lawful purposes.

You may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wishto receive them, you have the option to deactivate your account.

Donor Privacy:
The Torch Relay does not trade, share, or sell a donor’s personal information to third parties, nor do we send donor mailings or emails on behalf of other organizations. This policy applies to all donors, online and offline.

If you donate online at our website, you are required to enter personal contact information and credit card information. We use this information to process your donation and send you a confirmation receipt. This information will not be sold or shared with outside parties.

The Torch Relay does not collect personally identifiable information about you other than what you freely share. You have the option of entering personally identifiable information about yourself as you interact with the website, including name, address, demographic data such as age, etc. The Torch Relay uses this information to help us understand who is registered and how we may better tailor our services.

Sharing of Information
Under no circumstances does the Torch Relay divulge or share any information about an individual to a third party. We will not share information about individual users with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.

The Torch Relay will not share your name, participation details or fundraising details with any third parties or other participants, sponsors, or the public without your permission.

You retain full control over what types of communication you receive from the Torch Relay and may opt to discontinue email or written correspondence at any time. You may remove or request removal of any such information you share.

Consistent with the Federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.

We may place a text file called a "cookie" in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain Personal Information although it will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. The Torch Relay uses cookies to track user traffic patterns (as described above). Our system delivers a one-time cookie to better track impressions and click rates. You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you have set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, you will receive the warning message with each cookie. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use this site. However, you do need cookies to participate actively in the online registration.

Information Security
Anytime you enter personally identifiable information, not intended to be shared publicly, such as password, address, or credit card number, this information is sent to The Torch Relay over a secure connection. The Torch Relay uses generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us.

The Torch Relay for Children’s Miracle Network, Inc. operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.

Browsers And Internet Security
Any time you enter or provide personal information on our Web site, we encrypt it using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. SSL protects information as it crosses the Internet. To support this technology, you need an SSL-capable browser.
You can tell if you are visiting a secure area within a website by looking at the lock or key symbol in your browser address window. If the address of the page begins with "https:// ", it is secure. Occasionally, the page you enter data on may not be secure, but by submitting the information you activate a secure connection and thus your data is submitted securely.
