Generally, we use the information you  provide to us for the reason it was provided. For example, if you sign up to receive email  notifications, we will contact you by email.

D. The Eden Calhoun Charitable Fund, Inc. uses software programs to monitor  network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information or  otherwise cause damage for site security purposes and ensure that this service remains  available to all users. The Eden Calhoun Charitable Fund, Inc.

E. Lawful Basis for Processing Your Personal Information 

The laws in some countries (i.e., the General Data Protection Regulation) require us to  tell you about the lawful grounds we rely on to collect, use, disclose, and otherwise  process your Personally Identifiable Information. To the extent those laws apply, our  legal basis for processing your Personal Information supports our legitimate interests,  where your fundamental rights and freedoms do not override those interests: In many  cases, we handle Personal Information because it furthers our legitimate business and  charitable interests. This includes: 

  1. Providing a safe user experience on our Site;

  4. Protecting users, our workers, and our property;

  6. Managing legal issues. 

This Privacy Policy is issued on behalf of The Eden Calhoun Charitable Fund, Inc. AND ahandtoalwayshold.org, as controller of your Personal Information under  applicable data protection laws. A “controller” is the person or organization who alone  or jointly determines the purposes for which, and how, any Personal Information is, or is  likely to be, processed. 

E. California Privacy Rights  

Residents of the State of California, under certain provisions of the California Civil Code,  have the right to request from companies conducting business in California a list of all  third parties to which the company has disclosed certain personally identifiable  information as defined under California law during the preceding year for third-party direct marketing purposes. You are limited to one request per calendar year. In your request, please attest to the fact that you are a California resident and provide a current  California address for our response.

F. Third-Party Ad Server Networks  

The Website may use third parties, such as network advertisers, to serve advertisements on the Website. They may use traffic measurement services to analyze traffic on the  Website. Network advertisers are third parties that display advertisements based on your visits to the Website and other Websites you have visited. Third-party ad serving enables  us to target advertisements for products and services you might be interested in. The  Website's third-party ad network providers, the advertisers, the sponsors, and traffic  measurement services may themselves set and access their cookies on your computer if  you choose to have cookies enabled in your browser and track certain behavioral  information regarding users of your computer via a Device Identifier. These third-party cookies are set to, among other things: (a) help deliver advertisements to you that you  might be interested in; (b) prevent you from seeing the same advertisements too many  times; and (c) understand the usefulness to you of the advertisements that have been  delivered to you. Note that any images (or any other parts of a web page) served by third  parties in association with third-party cookies may serve as web beacons, which enable  third parties to carry out the previously described activities. Third-party cookies and web  beacons are governed by each third party's specific privacy policy, not this one.  

G. Public Forums  

We may offer chat rooms, message boards, bulletin boards, or similar public forums where you and other website users can communicate. The protections described in this  Privacy Policy do not apply when you provide information (including personal information) concerning your use of these public forums. We may use personally identifiable and non-personal information about you to identify you with a posting in a  public forum. Any information you share in a public forum is general information and  may be seen or collected by anyone, including third parties that do not adhere to our  Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for events arising from publicly distributing any  information you choose to post or share through our Website.  

H. Keeping Your Information Secure  

 We have implemented security measures we consider reasonable and appropriate to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control.  Please be advised, however, that while we strive to protect your personally identifiable information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and are not responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your personally identifiable information. In the unfortunate event that your "personally identifiable information" (as the term or similar terms are defined by any applicable law requiring notice upon a security breach) is compromised, we may notify you by e-mail (at our sole and absolute discretion) to the last e-mail address you have provided us in the most expedient time reasonable under the circumstances; provided, however, delays in notification may occur while we take necessary measures to determine the scope of the breach and restore reasonable integrity  

to the system as well as for the legitimate needs of law enforcement if notification would impede a criminal investigation. From time to time, we evaluate new technology for  protecting information, and when appropriate, we upgrade our information security systems.  

I. Privacy of Children 

“Personally Identifiable Information” (“PII”) is information that tells us who you  are, such as name, physical address, e-mail address, and any other information the  Site collects that is defined as personal or personally identifiable under applicable  law. 

No one under 13 may provide any PII on the Site, and ahandtoalwayshold.org does not intentionally collect PII from children under thirteen on our Site. Suppose ahandtoalwayshold.org learns that PII has been collected or received from a child under 13 on our Site. In that case, it will delete that child’s personal information  from its files and the Site, by the federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of  1998. 

J. Other Sites; Links  

Our Website may link to or contain links to other third-party Websites that we do not  control or maintain, such as in connection with purchasing products referenced on our  Website and banner advertisements. We are not responsible for the privacy practices  employed by any third-party Website. We encourage you to note when you leave our  Website and to read the privacy statements of all third-party Websites before submitting  any personally identifiable information.  

K. Contact and Opt-Out Information  

You may contact us at info@ahandtoalwayshold.org if: (a) you have questions or  comments about our Privacy Policy; (b) you wish to make corrections to any personally identifiable information you have provided; (c) you want to opt out from receiving future  commercial correspondence, including emails, from our affiliated companies or us; or (d)  wish to withdraw your consent to share your personally identifiable information with  others. We will respond to your request and, if applicable and appropriate, make the  requested change in our active databases as soon as reasonably practicable.
