1. Types of Information We Collect
When you use the Services, we may collect information about you (“Information”), which includes:
“Personal Information” which means information that identifies you, whether directly or indirectly, such as your name, email address and telephone number.
“Non-Personal Information” which means information that does not directly or indirectly identify, and cannot reasonably be used to identify you. If Non-Personal Information is subsequently directly or indirectly associated with Personal Information, we then treat it as Personal Information.
Information we may collect about you includes:
Information you provide when you access or use the Services and each time you interact with the Services or otherwise with us, for example, when you sign up for our mailing list or communicate with us by email.
Usage, viewing and technical Information, including your IP address or device identifier when you use the Services. If you access your account from a mobile device, that mobile device may also provide us with details of your location. Most mobile devices allow you to disable this functionality.
Information we receive about you from third parties. For example, if you elect to make a donation or sign up for an event through the Services, a third party will process your payment or registration. In the case of donation payments, we receive the personal information you submit with your donation and the last four digits of your credit card number. In the case of event or programming sign-ups, we receive the personal information you submit with your event or programming registration. See also Section 5 “THIRD PARTY WEBSITES AND LINKS” below.
