Information Collection & Sharing
The Equestrian Aid Foundation, through its website, donor database, and financial processing system, collects and / or processes personal and anonymous information including but not limited to:
• Personal information (Contact and financial information if a credit card is used)
• Photography / video
• IP address (to help administer our services, diagnose problems and track website traffic)
• Comments and suggestions
• Cookies / Google Analytics (to help provide better services – you may reject or cancel cookies at any
time through your web browser)
• Aggregate website traffic patterns
From time to time, Equestrian Aid Foundation may use this information for specific limited purposes. For example, we may use your personal information to send email alerts, answer requests and provide other personalized services. You may discontinue receiving messages from Equestrian Aid at any time by contacting contact@EquestrianAid.org.
Donors may request to see or modify the information that Equestrian Aid has collected from them at any time by making a request to contact@EquestrianAid.org. Financial information is used to process donations but is not retained.
Equestrian Aid’s use of information obtained from children under the age of 13 complies with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). Equestrian Aid will make reasonable efforts to identify children who may be under the age of 13 and, if so determined, their names, addresses and contact information will not be published without parental consent.
Participation in Equestrian Aid events is considered a blanket release to use photography (still or video) taken at the event.
The Equestrian Aid Foundation does not share, rent or sell personal information to third-party marketers.
The Foundation may also use personal information to create aggregate information or lists shared with other tax exempt organizations, companies providing services for us (e.g., ticket sales, website management, fulfillment, information management, etc.), and as required by law. Those contracted organizations are expected to uphold the same privacy standards as the Equestrian Aid Foundation.
Providing a secure online environment is essential but challenging in today’s environment. The Equestrian Aid Foundation’s website is professionally hosted by a third-party provider that adheres to best internet practices, including secure socket layer (“SSL”) encryption and other technologies. Equestrian Aid and its internet service provider will make every reasonable effort to safeguard personal information. This is not, however, a guarantee against information hacking.
