We are committed to protecting the privacy of Internet users who visit our website. Your privacy and trust are important to us.
This website is administered by the Women’s Resource Center of Alamance County in Burlington, North Carolina, USA (“WRC of Alamance”). This Privacy Policy discloses the information practices for WRC of Alamance websites, including what type of information is gathered and tracked, how the information is used and with whom the information is shared.

By using this site, you expressly agree to the collection, use and transfer of your information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Service without limitation or qualification. If you choose not to agree to these terms, then you may NOT use this site. WRC of Alamance reserves the right to change these terms and conditions at any time without prior notice to you. You agree that each visit you make to this site shall be subject to the then-current Privacy Policy and Terms of Service. By accessing and/or browsing this site, you accept without limitation or qualification this Privacy Policy and acknowledge that any other agreement between you and WRC of Alamance regarding the subject matter hereof is superseded and of no force or effect.

Personally Identifiable Information

When you visit our website, you are accessing it anonymously. WRC of Alamance does not acquire your email address or other personally identifiable information about you unless you choose to provide it to us. Personally identifiable information is any information that could reasonably be used to identify you personally. This includes, but is not limited to: name, address, email address, telephone number, ZIP code, community affiliation and relationship, opinions, gender, birthday, credit card information and Social Security number.

If you choose to provide personally identifiable information directly to WRC of Alamance, we agree to maintain such personally identifiable information in confidence and will use it only for the purposes of furthering our business and those of our affiliates, and their respective successors and assigns, as set forth in this Privacy Policy. We will not disseminate or otherwise publish the information that you may provide other than in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Service. However, please note that WRC of Alamance shall not treat as confidential and shall not have any duty to protect any information that is submitted, posted or uploaded to the WRC of Alamance website and available for general viewing.

Collection of Personally Identifiable Information

Personally identifiable information may be provided when website visitors complete one of our online forms (examples include newsletter subscriptions or contact and review forms). The following list includes ways we collect personally identifiable information from our website visitors and the type of information collected:

You may find numerous forms throughout our site to help you evaluate or engage our services and ask questions. Required information varies depending on the form and at most includes full name and an email address. The provision of this information is mandatory in order to receive consideration from WRC of Alamance. The provision of the remaining information requested on the registration form is optional. The same is true for any request for online newsletters or other types of regular electronic updates we may offer to website visitors.

WRC of Alamance only collects user-provided personally identifiable information. For example, you may want to give us your name and contact information to communicate with you, to provide you with a service, or to conduct business with us if you are a supplier or a business partner. You may share a description of your education and work experience in connection with a job opening at WRC of Alamance for which you wish to be considered. If you use the procedures described in this Privacy Policy to tell us that you do not want us to use your information to make further contact with you beyond fulfilling your request, we will respect your wishes.

If you choose to provide a false name or email, you may not receive a response to your inquiry or your request may not be processed. However, any information you provide in other fields may be used to help solve issues that exist. For example, if you have information that you would like to relay to someone in the company but do not accurately identify yourself, you may include the information in the comments section of the form. That information will be sent to the appropriate person who can help resolve the issue regardless of whether or not we are able to send a response to you. The same is true for anyone who enters an email address, phone number or other form of contact information incorrectly. While WRC of Alamance endeavors to promptly consider inquiries and requests, it is not responsible for failing to respond. This is especially true when an inquiry or request is submitted by someone who has submitted inaccurate or invalid contact information.

From time to time, we may also collect information that pertains to you indirectly through other sources, such as list vendors. When we do so, we ask the vendors to confirm that the information was legally acquired by the third party and that we have the right to obtain it from them and use it.

The information that we collect, either directly or indirectly, may be combined to help us improve its overall accuracy and completeness and to help us better tailor our interactions with you.

We may also collect information relating to your use of our websites through the use of various technologies regardless of your privacy settings for “Do Not Track” requests. For example, when you visit our websites, we may log certain information that your browser sends us, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access time, referring website addresses and if you received or responded to our digital advertisements. We may also collect information about the pages you view within our sites and other actions you take while visiting us. In addition, we may also use such technologies to determine whether you’ve opened an email or clicked on a link contained in an email. Collecting information about how you use our websites helps us personalize your future experiences on our websites, as well as tailor our interactions with you and improve our services.

One technology we use to collect information is called “cookies”. A cookie is a piece of data that a website sends to your browser. The data is stored on your computer as a tag that identifies your computer. Cookies are used mainly to measure website usage and effectiveness and to allow for ease of navigation or use. As such, they are not associated with any personally identifiable information. Cookies are also used at times to personalize a known visitor’s experience to a website by being associated with profile information or user preferences. As described below, you can adjust your browser settings in most instances to turn off cookies or to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it or not.
