Information Collection
We may collect information about you and from you including personal, demographic and aggregate data. As used in this Privacy Policy, “personal information” means information that specifically identifies you, such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, etc.
Demographic information is anonymous information, which may include your age, date of birth, income, gender, geographic area, hobbies or interests. Demographic information is not considered personal information unless it is linked with your other personal information, which we may link for a variety of reasons such as customizing content or services according to your interests and preferences or verifying your identity. Personal information does not include data we collect about the use of the Website, from which personal information has been removed.
Such data (“aggregate data”) is used for a number of purposes such as helping us understand trends and user needs so we can improve our Services. We reserve the right to use a third party to provide identity and information verification services on our Website. Such third parties are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose. Personal information may be collected in a number of ways, such as when you sign-up for an account or communicate with WOT. In addition, we may ask you to provide certain personal information when providing feedback to us. When registering for an account, you will be asked to provide your contact information, your name and other personal information. Also, you may post to the Website or transmit personal information, photographs, and other content through user account profile functionality as well as forums on the Website. All such content that you post to the Website is done at your own risk and WOT bears no responsibility for any such content or any liability for any claims arising out of such content. When you use the Website, we may also collect certain information about your computer to facilitate and evaluate your use of the Website and the Service. For example, we may log environmental variables, such as browser type, operating system, referring or exit web pages, and the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer. By using the Website and/or the Services, you are consenting to have your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States.

Protection of Personal Information
We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the security, confidentiality and integrity of your personal information. The personal information that you provide online in connection with registering yourself as a user of the Website or Service is protected in several ways. Access by you to such personal information is available through your username and a password selected by you. To protect the confidentiality of such personal information, you should not divulge your password to anyone. You are responsible for all uses of the Website and Service by any person using your username and password. Please advise us immediately if you believe your password has been compromised. In addition, your personal information resides on servers or in areas of facilities that only selected personnel and contractors can access. We take precautions to protect all data that you submit to the Website, and thereby attempt to prevent unauthorized parties from viewing such information when it is transmitted to us. Please note that any information you submit by email may not be secure, so please do not send any sensitive information or materials in or attached to any email to WOT.We do not sell your personal information to anyone.

Donor’s Personal Information

Women of Tomorrow will not sell, trade or share a donor’s personal information with anyone else, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations and we will only share personal information once the donor has given us specific permission to do so. This includes all personal information collected via both online and offline transactions.

 

Children Under Age 13

We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13. Any person between the ages of 13 and 17 must have parental consent to register with the Website. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register with the Website. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information through the Website from a person underage 13 or from someone between 13 and 17 without parental consent, we will delete that information as soon as practical.

 

Profile Information
As a user, your profile must include your first name, last name, and connection to WOT. You may also provide additional information about yourself including: pictures, resume, story about WOT, current school, occupation, employment status, etc. We may occasionally use your name and email address and/or cell phone number for text messages (if you have authorized that notification method) to send you notifications from the Website and WOT. Profile information is used by us primarily to be presented back to and edited by you when you access the Service and to be presented to others who view your profile page. Your first name and connection to WOT will automatically be available in search results on and may be made available to third party search engines. You can select the privacy of the other information you provide. We may also send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the Website.

Use of Cookies
In order to improve our Service and the Website and provide more convenient, relevant experiences to our users, we may use “cookies”, “web beacons”, and similar devices to track your activities. A cookie is small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It functions as your identification card and enables us to record your passwords, profile and  references. A web beacon is a small transparent “GIF” image that is embedded in an HTML page or email used to track when the page or email has been viewed. A similar device may be used by which a product, service or functionality may send data to a server when a set of user-initiated events occur (such as after clicking a button on the Website or in an email). This device is similar to a cookie in that it tracks your visit and the data can only be read by the server that receives the data. It is different than a cookie in that it is not browser-based, may not function as an identification card and does not store any data on your computer. While WOT uses cookies and similar devices to track your use of the Website, such as the number of downloads, pages visited and how many users we receive daily, and while our web servers automatically log the IP/Internet address of your computer, we do not generally use this information to identify you personally. However, if you expressly provide consent for the Website to remember you when you log into your account, that unique identifier will be stored on a cookie on your computer and that unique identifier will be linked to your information. As a result, your navigation path around the Website and the Service will be tracked by WOT for the purposes intended herein. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies and similar devices. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or similar device, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it, though this may preclude you from using the Website. To find out more about cookies, including how to see which cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.

Tracking/Do Not Track
When you visit a website (such as the WOT Website), your browser automatically shares certain information with that website, such as your IP address and other device information. Some of this information may also be sent to third-party content providers (for example: advertisers, website analytic companies, etc.) that provide content on the website. Such sharing may allow the website and/or content providers to track you over time and across multiple websites. Today, many browsers offer Do Not Track plugins that allow you to express a preference that you not be tracked, and that tell websites that you visit, by sending an electronic beacon, this preference. At this time, WOT’s Website does not respond to Do Not Track beacons sent by browser plugins.

Sharing Information With Third Parties and Partners
We collect non-public personal information about you from the following sources: information we receive from you during registration and  information about your transactions with us. Non-public, personally identifiable information about you may be disclosed without your consent to our service providers for the purpose of performing services on the Website. Specifically, we may use service providers and third parties to facilitate our business and Website, such as to host the service at a co-location facility for servers, to send out email updates about WOT, to remove repetitive information from our user lists, to offer an online job application process, or to provide search results or links (including sponsored links). In connection with these business services and operations, our service providers may have access to your non-public personal information for use for a limited time in connection with these specific business activities. Where we utilize third parties for the processing of any personal information, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to the WOT-specified purposes. We restrict access to non-public personal information to employees on a “need to know” basis only. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to guard your non-public personal information. We may provide aggregate, non-personally identifiable data about the usage of our services to third parties or partner companies that we have joint marketing agreements with for such purposes as we deem, in our sole discretion, to be appropriate. These arrangements give you the opportunity to receive additional products or services from us or third parties. However, no non-public personal information about you will be intentionally shared, disclosed or sold to any third party not affiliated with us.

We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information until we have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the WOT service or using the WOT name, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.

Security
The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

WOT Communications
We will communicate with you through e-mail and notices posted on this Website as well as through text messages, if you agree to receive text message notifications (note that text messaging and data rates and charges may apply). Such communications will relate to the Website, your account, and/or WOT.

Accessing and Changing Your Account Information
You can review the personal information you provide to us and make any desired changes to the information, or to the privacy settings for your WOT account, at any time by logging into your account on the WOT Website and editing the information on your Profile page, or by writing us at: Women of Tomorrow Mentor & Scholarship Program, Inc., 8400 NW 36 Street, #450, Doral, FL 33166, Attn: Betty George or by calling us directly at (305) 371-3331, or by emailing us. Please include your name, address, and/or email address when you contact us.
Opting-out. Even after you have consented to our collection and use of your personal information, you may opt-out of having your personal data collected or used by us by contacting us via one of the methods described above. Doing so, however, may make it unable for you to utilize the Website and may result in us closing your account. If you close your WOT account, we will remove your name and other personally identifiable
information from our publicly viewable data. We may retain certain data contributed by you if it may be necessary to prevent fraud or future abuse, or for legitimate business purposes, such as analysis of aggregated, non-personally-identifiable data, account recovery, or if required by law.
All changes and retained data will continue to be subject to the terms of the WOT Privacy Policy in effect at such time.

Third Party Advertising
Advertisements that appear on WOT are sometimes delivered (or “served”) directly to users by third party advertisers. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. These third party advertisers may also download cookies to your computer, or use other technologies such as JavaScript and “web beacons” (also known as “1×1 gifs”) to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. Doing this allows the advertising network to recognize your computer each time they send you an advertisement in order to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. In this way, they may compile information about where individuals using your computer or browser saw their advertisements and determine which advertisements are clicked. We do not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by the third party advertisers. Third party advertisers have no access to your contact information stored on WOT unless you choose to share it with them. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by WOT and does not cover the use of cookies or other tracking technologies by any of its advertisers.

Links to Other Websites
This Website may contain links to other Websites that are not owned or controlled by WOT. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other Websites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Website you should read the privacy statements of each and every other website that collects personally identifiable information. This Private Policy applies only to information collected by this Website.

Changes To This Privacy Policy
Your use of WOT and any disputes arising from such use, is subject to this Privacy Policy as well as our Terms and Conditions and all of its dispute resolution provisions including arbitration, limitation on damages and choice of law. We reserve the right to change our Privacy Policy and our Terms and Conditions at any time. Non-material changes and clarifications will take effect immediately, and material changes will take effect within 30 days of their posting on this Website. If we make changes, we will post them on our Website along with the effective date of the changes. In addition, you may be notified of the changes by email.
