ICW WEB PRIVACY STATE M ENT
ICW’s general practice is to respect the privacy of all web site visitors. We want this privacy statement to inform you of the ways in which this web site collects information, the uses to which that information will be put, and the ways in which we will protect any information you choose to provide us.
There are four types of information that may be collected during your visit: information you voluntarily provide, cookies, network traffic information, and web server statistic logs.
ICW may use information gathered through the website to create a record about you in our donor database or to update your existing record. ICW will not sell to or share with any external party contribution information contained in the ICW database. ICW will share limited demographic data only in select circumstances that we believe are directly relevant to serving students.
Record of Gifts
Gifts will be credited on the day the donation is made. Letter of receipt will be sent within three business days of the confirmation from the bank of receipt of funds and clearance from the credit card company. The page where credit card information is entered is a secure VirtualMerchant OR ClickAndPledge.com site. All transactions will be in U.S. dollars.
Information You Voluntarily Provide
In the course of using this web site, you may choose to provide us with information to help us serve your needs. For example, you may send us electronic mail (through a mailer or a web form) to request information, send an electronic postcard, or register for events. Or you may send us your address so we may send you information or other materials. Any personally identifiable information you send us will be used only for the purpose indicated or as described in this privacy statement. Requests for information will be directed to the appropriate staff, and may be recorded to help us update our site to better respond to similar requests. We will not sell, exchange, or otherwise distribute your personally identifiable information to outside corporations or organizations.
ICW web sites may provide links to other World Wide Web sites or resources. We do not control these sites and resources, do not endorse them, and are not responsible for their availability, content, or delivery of services. In particular, external sites are not bound by ICW’s web privacy statements or policy; they may have their own policies or none at all. You can tell if you are leaving an ICW web site by noting the URL of the destination site.
In the course of ensuring network security and consistent service for all users, we may use software programs to do such things as:
- Analyze network traffic
- Identify unauthorized access
- Detect computer viruses and other software that might damage ICW computers or the network
- Monitor and maintain the performance of the ICW network
In the course of monitoring, these programs may detect information such as e-mail headers, addresses from network packets and other information. Information from these activities is used solely for the purpose of maintaining the security and performance of the ICW network and computer systems. Personally identifiable information from these activities is not released to external parties unless required by law.

- Page visited

- Domain name or IP address of the referring site
- Domain name and IP address from which the access occurred
