The Witherspoon Institute’s Privacy Policy

Your privacy on the Internet is important to us. As part of the operation of The Witherspoon Institute’s web site (“winst.org”), we gather certain types of information from users, and we would like to explain the types of information we gather, what we do with them, and how to correct or change the information. The privacy policies for winst.org also apply to thepublicdiscourse.com, nlnrac.org, familystructurestudies.com, and any other websites of the Witherspoon Institute.

Information Collected by Winst.org

Winst.org collects two types of information from users: personal data such as your name, postal address, e-mail address, or credit card information (in the case of donations); and aggregated data such as information about traffic patterns on winst.org (for example, how many users log on to winst.org on a daily basis).

Aggregated Information

Aggregated information, such as which pages users visit, is collected through various means. One of these ways is through an IP (“Internet Protocol”) address, a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Web servers (the computers that store the files of Web pages that Internet users visit) automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you request a page from winst.org, the site’s servers record your IP address. The IP address is not linked to anything personally identifiable, so although your session will be recorded, it will remain anonymous.

Security

Our website employs security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. We use a secure server to protect the security of online credit card transactions. Furthermore, all of the visitor data we collect is protected against unauthorized access. The Witherspoon Institute’s employees understand the need for user privacy and access to user data is strictly limited.

Use of Information Collected by winst.org

We may use personal information in the following ways:

    • To send e-mail acknowledgements of subscription orders or correspondence conducted on the website.
    • To send you e-mail renewal notices.
    • To enhance existing features or develop new features and services.
    • To process donations to the Witherspoon Institute.

When you use winst.org, you consent to our collection and use of the personal information you provide. The Witherspoon Institute does not disclose personally identifying information about its users to others without their consent. Please note that if at any time The Witherspoon Institute is required by law or a legal process to release individual or organizational information, we must cooperate fully.

If you ever wish to be removed from any mailing lists of the Witherspoon Institute, to change your personal information that we have on file, or to learn what information about you we have on file, please send your request to the postal or e-mail addresses listed above, or contact us at the telephone number listed above.

Links to Other Sites

It is important to note that winst.org may contain links to sites other than winst.org, and that those sites may not follow the same privacy policies as winst.org.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

The Witherspoon Institute reserves the right to change the policy on use of information collected. Any changes in policy will be noted in a revised privacy policy statement. You may direct any privacy policy questions or concerns to our e-mail address: info(at)winst.org.
