Information Automatically Collected and Stored
When you browse through the Wellspring web site, certain personal information about you can be collected. We automatically collect and temporarily store the following information about your visit:
- The name of the domain you use to access the Internet (for example, aol.com if you are using an American Online account or stanford.edu if you are connecting from Stanford University’s domain)
- The date and time of your visit
- The pages you visited
- The type of browser and operating system used to access our site
- The address of the web site you came from when you came to visit.
We use this information for statistical purposes and to help us make our site more useful to visitors. Unless it is specifically stated otherwise, no additional information will be collected about you. No information about Wellspring/NCADD users/visitors will be sold, shared, or utilized in any commercial way.
You do not have to give us personal information to visit our web site.
If you choose to provide us with additional information about yourself through an e-mail message, form, survey, etc., we will maintain only the information as long as needed to respond to your question or to fulfill the stated purpose of the communication.
However, all communications addressed to Wellspring or the Wellspring webmaster are maintained, as required by law, for historical purposes. These communications are archived on a monthly basis, but also are protected by the Privacy Act, which restricts our use of them yet permits certain disclosures.
Wellspring does not disclose, give, sell, or transfer any personal information about our visitors unless required for law enforcement or statute.
We are especially concerned about protecting children’s privacy. We urge parents and teachers to be involved in children’s Internet browsing. It is particularly important for parents to guide their children when children are asked to provide personal information online. We always suggest that children get their parent’s or guardian’s permission before providing any information online at our site or any other site and hope parents and guardians will always be involved in those decisions.
Most importantly, when children do provide information through this web site, it is used only to enable us to respond to the writer, and not to create profiles of children. The information is all subject to the Privacy Act. Parents can request for any personal information to be removed by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
