This data is aggregate information, and cannot be used to identify any particular user. We do not collect information that personally identifies individuals except when individuals provide this information voluntarily. You can access our websites, browse and download content, and use many of the features of the sites without disclosing your personal data.
What information may you provide?
We may ask you for information when you subscribe to our email newsletters or fill out a form such as to register for an event, course, or training opportunity; to order or purchase resources or materials; or to make a donation.

When filling out other forms on our sites, you will only be asked for the information we need to meet your needs, you will be told what the information will be used for, and we will not use that information for any other purpose.
When subscribing to our email newsletters, you will be asked for your name and e-mail address.
If you are registering for a program for which payment is required, purchasing resources, or making a donation, we will collect payment information.
If you are registering for a program which is offered in partnership with another organization, it will be clearly specified on the registration form which information will be shared, with whom, and what the information will be used for.

We may use your information in the following ways, with your permission:
- Complete your registration for programs or events

Do we disclose any information?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information.
This does not include trusted third parties who are providing a specific service. For example, we may use third party tools for event registration, e-mail subscriptions, processing payment information, and issuing receipts. We protect your privacy by using only reputable third party vendors whom we trust, but your use of these tools on our site is subject to their policies.
We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety.
Third party links
Our websites include many links and embedded tools that are hosted on third party sites. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites.
