We collect two types of information about people who visit our site: anonymous, and personal.


Anonymous data is collected automatically about site visitors, indicating their browser type, operating system, Internet service provider, or the site they clicked from. We use this data to determine the total number of site visits and the average time visitors spend at the site. We do not use cookies or similar tracking technologies to collect information about site visitors. This kind of anonymous data is collected in the aggregate and does not tell us any information about a visitor as an individual. We will not sell or voluntarily transfer this information to third parties.


We may also collect personal information about site visitors who give us such information voluntarily:


If you use a credit card on our website, we will use that information only for that transaction. We will not store that information and will take industry-standard security measures to protect your data.
When you make a contribution to Valley Teen Ranch online, we collect personal information on the contribution form. Your name, postal address, and email address will not be sold, exchanged or rented to other organizations. More information about our opt-out policy is provided below. If you join any Valley Teen Ranch listserv, you will automatically receive periodic bulletins about us via email. We may also send you email solicitations to support Valley Teen Ranch. We will not sell, exchange or rent your email address to other organizations.


We occasionally post user surveys on our site to help us improve our services to visitors. Participation in our user surveys is voluntary. We may use the information you give us in a survey to contact you regarding particular human rights issues, unless you check the “opt-out” box on the survey. We will not exchange or rent your information to other organizations.


Signing petitions or participating in other activist functions on our site may require registration. The personal information we may collect as part of these functions will not be sold, exchanged or rented to other organizations, but Valley Teen Ranch may send you emails or other solicitations unless you “opt-out” on the registration forms.
