This Policy may be changed or updated from time to time. By visiting Brave Works at one of our websites or using one of our mobile apps, you accept the practices described in this Policy.
The Data We CollectOur websites and mobile apps provide convenient ways for you to access our services and learn about the important work of Brave Works and our national programs. We collect information about our online visitors both directly from our visitors and indirectly from other companies that provide data to us. We use this information to communicate with our supporters and process their transactions.
When you use our websites or apps to make a financial contribution or participate at an event, sign up to volunteer or apply for a job, we may ask you for your name, address, phone number(s), and other information relevant to the transaction. We will ask for standard credit card information when you make a financial donation or make a purchase.
We obtain information about our online visitors from other sources as well. For example, we engage vendors that provide contact information and other data. We use this data to help us engage with people who may be interested in participating in Brave Works activities or contributing to the Brave Work’s mission.
We also collect non-personal information about our online visitors using “cookies”, pixels, web beacons, and other technologies that operate automatically when you visit our website. We use this information to give our website visitors a more relevant online experience and to help us make website improvements. The information helps us understand which parts of our websites are the most popular, where our online visitors are going, and how long they spend there. If you do not want us to collect information using cookies, you can disable this function in your browser. If you block cookies from us, however, you may not be able to see personalized content and our website may not function optimally.
How We Secure DataWe use a variety of security measures to protect your data. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to help prevent unauthorized access to and improper use of personally identifiable information.
We protect the security of credit card transactions using a number of measures such as encryption, access controls, network firewalls, and physical security. These measures make it extremely difficult for anyone to intercept the credit card information you send to us. When we work with other companies to process credit card transactions, those companies also use encryption and other appropriate security measures.
No website or electronic data can ever be completely secure, but we are always working to maintain up- to-date and appropriate security mechanisms.
How We Use Your InformationIf you provide Brave Works with personal information when you visit our websites or use our mobile apps, we may use the information in our programs and activities. We may enter your information into one of our data bases so we can contact you to obtain your input, provide information about our programs and events, request donations, or provide a more personalized online experience.
Brave Works does not sell, trade, or share our donors’ personally identifiable information with any other entity, except as described below.
On occasion, Brave Works may share your information with our vendors and other partners that help us with our activities and programs. For example, we share information with vendors that help us fulfill orders, manage data, and process donations and credit card payments. These vendors are bound by strict confidentiality rules and are permitted to use the information only to support Brave Works operations. We also disclose information as required by law.
