The Pride Center has created this privacy policy because we value our members and recognize their right to keep personal information private. This statement discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this Pride Center website. We will not willfully disclose personally identifiable information about our web users to any third party without first receiving that web user’s permission.

THE PRIDE CENTER GATHERS THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION:

IP Address
The Pride Center’s web servers and forms on the web gather your IP address to help diagnose problems with our service, to administer our site, and to gather broad demographic information. Demographic information is gathered in aggregate only and cannot be traced to an individual user.

Cookies
Our website sets cookies to keep track of advertising banner ad hits and other similar information. The Pride Center’s web servers may also set a session ID cookie that is used to allow our servers to deliver information you request (e.g., search results). Session IDs cannot be traced to an individual person or member name, and are analyzed only in aggregate. Members who do not want to receive cookies can instruct their web browsers to refuse them; be aware, however, that doing so may prevent certain parts of The Pride Center’s site from working. Other organizations which place advertising on The Pride Center sometimes have the ability to assign a different cookie to you in a process that we don’t not control. Unless you’ve saved your member name, cookies aren’t useable for identifying individuals (your computer will be assigned a random number); neither The Pride Center nor advertisers will know who you are. This site also uses Google Analytics to gather traffic statistics.  Third parties may be placing and reading cookies on our users’ browsers, or using web beacons to collect information as a result of ad serving on our website.

E-News Mailing List

Signing up for our e-mail distribution list is completely optional. The Pride Center’s signup form requires users to give contact and demographic information (e.g., ZIP code, age). Required fields are marked with an asterisk. We use this information to send members information about The Pride Center (e.g., upcoming events, bulletins and newsletters); members may opt-out of receiving this information via e-mail. At times, The Pride Center may rent names, mailing and email addresses to carefully selected organizations. This information is rented on a single-use-only basis. Aggregate demographic information collected through the registration process may be shared with advertisers and other partners. This aggregate information is not traceable to an individual user.

Donation and Order Forms

When purchasing products or services on The Pride Center’s site, you’re asked for credit card, billing and shipping information. This information is used to debit a customer’s credit card for a donation of money to The Center, or for goods and services purchased, and to ship merchandise. Only billing vendors and Pride Center treasury staff have access to financial information and only for the purpose of billing customers. At times, The Pride Center may refer customers to other websites to purchase products. Your activity on those sites is covered by the privacy policies on those sites. 

Member Feedback

The Pride Center stores feedback that members send to us. This feedback is used to administer and refine the The Pride Center’s site, and, at times, may be shared with Pride Center affiliates either in aggregate form or with specific identifying characteristics (e.g., email address, name) removed.

YOUR PRIVATE ONLINE COMMUNICATIONS

The Pride Center believes that member’s private communications in email and other methods of communication should remain confidential. The Pride Center does not read or disclose private communications unless ordered to do so through a valid legal mechanism such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order, to protect the company’s rights and property, or during emergencies when we believe physical safety is at risk. Also, keep in mind that The Pride Center is not responsible for what other users may do with private communications you’ve had with them.
