Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Policy is designed to assist you in understanding how the Latino Student Fund (LSF) collects and uses the personal information you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our sites and services.

The Information We Collect

We do not require visitors to supply personally identifiable information when accessing public areas of the site. When you browse the website, you do so anonymously, unless you have submitted an online registration form or RSVP’d for an event. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our website you visit and how long you spend there.

We do collect personally identifiable information when you register, access certain restricted site areas, place an order, request other information, or otherwise communicate with us about our offerings. From time to time, we receive personal information from business partners and vendors. We only use such information if it has been collected in accordance with acceptable industry privacy practices consistent with this policy and applicable laws. Personally identifiable information may be merged with other information we already know, such as whether you or your organization has had past contact with a LSF staff member or representative.

How we use the Information

We collect this information for a variety of reasons, including our effort to inform you of such things as events, programs offers, and to ensure that you have access to information which is likely to be of interest to you. However, we do not sell or rent personally identifiable information to other organizations.

Security

We take measures to protect the security of your personal information and to ensure that your choices for its intended use are honored. We protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Unfortunately, we cannot, and do not, guarantee that data transmission over the Internet is secure, or that a malicious third party will not be successful at misappropriating your personal information from our servers. As a result, you provide us with your personal information at your own risk.

We strive to utilize a secure environment for credit card transactions. Once a transaction has cleared your credit card information is not stored by us.

We do not guarantee that your communications and other personally identifiable information will never be disclosed in ways not described in this Privacy Policy, or in ways that you would not have chosen to disclose it. This includes, but is not limited to, required disclosures to the government, in response to court orders, by unlawful interception. We can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate, in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringement or other activity that is illegal or may expose us to legal liability. Therefore, although we will endeavor to protect your privacy as described in this Privacy Policy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personally identifiable information or private communications will remain private.

If, by using a link from our site, you access the website or services of a third party then the protection of your information relating to their services will be governed by the privacy policy of the third party.

Your Choices

You may request at any time that the personally identifiable information you provide on a registration page not be used for direct email marketing purposes by the LSF.

To make this request you may contact the LSF at director@latinostudentfund.org and we will remove your email address from our email distributions.

Additionally, at the bottom of each marketing email LSF sends we provide a link to opt-out of the email list. By clicking on this link you will be guided through the automated process that will remove your email address from being included future mailings.

If you need further help or have additional questions, please email us at director@latinostudentfund.org. Please provide your full name, email address and phone number so that we may address your concerns appropriately.

The LSF web site may contain "links" to other non-LSF web sites. It is also possible that non-LSF web sites may link into LSF web sites. We are not responsible for the content or the privacy practices employed by those non-LSF web sites.

Cookies

As is the case with many sites, when you visit our site or complete a registration form, we will place a "cookie" on your computer, which helps us identify you more quickly when you return. Our use of this technology does not mean that we automatically know anything about you. They are used to identify you as a unique visitor to the site. We will not use "cookies" or other devices to follow your click stream on the Internet generally but will use them to determine which pages or information you find most useful or interesting at our own website.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

Due to the evolving nature used to communicate with you, LSF may occasionally update this privacy statement. Notice of any revisions will be posted to this privacy statement web page.

Questions or Suggestions

You should send any comments or questions regarding LSF's privacy policy to us at director@latinostudentfund.org, or by writing to us: P.O. Box 5403, Washington, DC 20016.
