We collect and maintain only personal information that is specifically and knowledgeably provided to us by individuals or their companies. The Arc of Union/Cabarrus will never rent, exchange or sell information on our contributors. We will only share personally identifiable information with a third party if (i) we are required to by law (ii) it is necessary for completing an authorized operation, for instance to process a credit card transaction, or (iii) if the person submitting the information asks that it be shared. We do maintain records on our contributors, which we regard as private and confidential and store securely with access limited to authorized staff (please also see our security policy).

There are opportunities within the website to provide the Arc of Union/Cabarrus with contact information, such as when you email us for information, become a member, or inquire about volunteering. If you provide us with this information, we may contact you for additional information or send you updates about how donations are being put to use in our community, such as our newsletter. You can contact us to restrict our use of your contact information at any time.

In addition, like almost all websites, we do collect broad, general statistical information about how visitors use our site, such as how often each page is visited, for the purpose of creating a better site for our community. We do not collect information on individual visits to the site without the expressed permission of the user.

There are links to other websites throughout our site for the purpose of providing more useful and complete information to our visitors. We do not take responsibility for the contents or privacy practices of any website other than our own.

Our Commitment To Data Security

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the correct use of information, we maintain physical, electronic and administrative safeguards to protect the information we collect online. We have taken all standard industry precautions to protect you from the loss, misuse or alteration of information you provide to us.

We are committed to ensuring that all donation transactions to www.thearcisthere.org are safe and secure to the fullest extent possible.

We use high-grade 128-bit encryption through Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and the https security protocol for secure online commerce transactions. This is the industry standard used to scramble all your personal data, including credit card number, name and address, so it cannot be read as the information travels over the Internet. The process of encryption takes the information you enter and converts it to bits of code for secure Internet transmission.
