Privacy Notice

Commitment to Privacy

Aspire respects the privacy of every visitor to our website. Your privacy is a priority and we go to great lengths to protect it. The following information explains our online information practices.

Data Collection

We cannot collect personal information from you when you visit our website unless you provide the information to us. We can collect non-identifying information such as the number of visitors to the website, pages viewed and usage behavior. This allows us to compile aggregate data that we can then use to make website improvements.

How We Use Cookies

We use “cookies” and other technologies to enhance your online experience. A “cookie” can be either permanent (it remains on your computer until you delete it) or temporary (it lasts only until you close your browser). A “cookie” is a small text file that helps us recognize repeat visitors, facilitate the visitor’s access to and use of the site, track usage behavior, and compile aggregate data that can lead to website improvements. Cookies and other similar technologies collect non-personal information about the user of a particular Internet Protocol (IP) address. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, you can deny or accept the cookie feature on your computer by using a simple procedure available in most browsers. However if you block cookies, you may lose some website functionality.

Credit Card Security

We use a variety of technologies and processes to safeguard the security of credit card transactions. They include: encryption, access controls, network firewalls, physical security and other measures. These features make it extremely difficult for credit card information to be intercepted. When we work with other companies to process credit card transactions, those companies also use encryption and other security measures.

Personal Information Security

We use industry-stand security protocols to insure any and all personal information you give to us is secure.

How We Use Your Information

Aspire will not sell, trade or share personal information about our financial donors with anyone else, nor will we send mailings to our financial donors on behalf of other organizations, unless a donor has given us specific permission to do so.

If you provide us with personal information when you visit our website, we will use it to respond to you when a response is warranted and we may enter your name into one of our databases so we can contact you to obtain your input or provide information about services, programs and events as is deemed appropriate. It will not be shared with other parties.
