You have the right to "opt-out" of certain uses of your Personal Information. For example, at the time you are requested to provide Personal Information on this website and/or through our Services, you may have the opportunity to elect to, or not to, receive promotional correspondence from the Alliance. If subscribed to received emails and updates, every Alliance correspondence provides the opportunity to update your preferences or to fully unsubscribe.

SECURITY

The Alliance makes every effort to protect your information, including:

  • Physical safekeeping: As a secure facility, our offices are restricted to employees and authorized visitors only. All computers are password-protected.
  • Electronic safekeeping: We use a perimeter firewall that is configured to let only necessary traffic through. All computers are patched regularly and have up-to-date antivirus software.
  • Administrative safekeeping: All of our website visitors’ information is restricted to the Alliance offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific function (e.g. processing a donor receipt) are granted access to files and folders on the server containing personally identifiable information. All employees are educated about the Alliance’s high expectations for ethical standards, policies and practices committed to the protection of user information. Training and review of these policies takes place periodically.

Although the Alliance takes all measures - physical, electronic and administrative - to prevent unauthorized access to and maintain the accuracy of your data and information, no information transferred over the Internet is 100% secure. The Alliance cannot guarantee the total security of information transmitted to us.
