Creating a text link from your website to our site does not require permission. If you have a link you'd like us to consider adding to our website, please send an e-mail to info@pflag.org with the subject "Link request."

Website Privacy Policy

We have created this statement to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy. We do not collect personally identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us. Providing such information is strictly voluntary. This policy is your guide to how we will handle information we learn about you from your visit to our website.

Reading or Downloading

We collect and store only the following information about you: the name of the domain from which you access the Internet (for example, aol.com, if you are connecting from an America Online account, or princeton.edu if you are connecting from Princeton University's domain), the date and time you access our site, and the Internet address of the website from which you linked to our site.

We use the information we collect to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our site, and to help us make our site more useful to visitors.

Online Profile Updates

If you complete the Profile update form and share your personally identifying information, this information will be used only to provide you with more targeted content. We may use your contact information to send further information about our organization or to contact you when necessary. You may always opt-out of receiving future mailings. See the "Opt Out" section below for additional details.

Donations and Privacy

Information from on-line donors is stored in the PFLAG member/donor database and may be used by PFLAG for subsequent donor contact, including confirmations and acknowledgements. E-mail addresses submitted for the mailing list are maintained separately and are not stored in the member/donor database. Encryption is used to ensure the security of donor’s personal and financial information during the transaction.

Use of Data by Third Parties

From time to time, PFLAG may send e-mail messages to members/donors on behalf of like-minded organizations or marketing partners. PFLAG rents or exchanges mail (street address) lists to like-minded organizations through bonded third-party vendors. List rental and exchange is a source of direct income, but more importantly provides reciprocal list access vital to increasing PFLAG’s donor base. Because we use bonded third-party vendors, the organizations never directly receive personally-identifiable information.

Members and donors may request that their records be flagged as follows:

Do not exchange: To be excluded from any list rentals or exchanges with like-minded organizations or marketing partners or from any messages sent by PFLAG on behalf of such organizations.

No mail: To opt out of all communications from PFLAG. You can make this designation on your online profile in the PFLAG Online Community.

Sending us E-mail

You also may decide to send us personally identifying information, for example, in an electronic mail message containing a question or comment, or by filling out a web form that provides us this information. We use personally identifying information from e-mail primarily to respond to your requests. We may forward your e-mail to other employees who are better able to answer you questions. We may also use your e-mail to contact you in the future about our programs that may be of interest.

We want to be very clear: We will not obtain personally identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us. Providing such information is strictly voluntary. Except as might be required by law, we do not share any information we receive in this manner with any outside parties.

If you sign up for one of our e-mail lists, we will only send you the kinds of information you have requested. We won't share your name and e-mail address with any outside parties.

Kids and Privacy

For children who visit our site, special rules apply. We do not request personal information about children, such as first and last name or street address and city. When kids send e-mail to us, their online contact information (e-mail address) is not used to re-contact them and is not maintained in retrievable form.

Opt-Out or Change Your Contact Information

Our site provides users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us through a special online form. You may choose to receive only specific communications or none at all. You may also update your contact information previously provided to us through another online form. You cannot remove yourself from our database, but you can prevent unwanted communication.

Questions about our policies

If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of this site, or your dealings with this website, you can contact us at info@pflag.org.
