The Servants of the Holy Heart of Mary Online Privacy Policy

The Servants of the Holy Heart of Mary (SSCM) respect the privacy of visitors to our Website, and we are committed to protecting the information entrusted to our care. We are honoring that commitment by disclosing here the nature of the limited information that is collected from and how such information is used.

Information Collected
SSCM collects personal information (including, but not limited to: name, e-mail address, home address phone number) through login and other online registrations, surveys, forms, and email. SSCM does not obtain any information about visitors from third parties (such as direct marketers, etc.). SSCM reserves the right to collect additional information, as necessary, to ensure that our website best meets the needs of our visitors.

As with the majority of web servers on the Internet, SSCM also keeps server logs that record and store information about each visit to our website. This information includes:
- the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address of visitors
- the date and time of visits
- the URL of “referring” web pages
- the pages visited on our site, and
- “browser strings,” which consist of the browser and operating system of visiting computers.

The sole purpose of these logs is to monitor website usage in order to evaluate and improve our website.

Information Collection Methods
SSCM automatically collects the logged information noted above when someone visits our website. Additional personal information (including, but not limited to: name, e-mail address, home address and Social Security or account numbers) may be collected via login and other online registrations, surveys, forms, and email only as necessary to provide requested services and to respond to queries from our visitors. We reserve the right to collect additional personal information via any online method, as necessary, to ensure that we are able to best provide services and respond to the needs of our visitors.

A note about cookies: A cookie is a small text file containing a unique identification number that is transferred from a website to the hard drive of a computer. The web server, in turn, uses this information to present a visitor with custom web pages, session tracking, etc. The cookie identifies the web browser-not the visitor-so that the stored information can be sent back to the server when the browser requests a page from the server. A cookie will not let a website know any personally identifiable information such as a real name and address. We do not use cookies to collect or preserve visitor information in the general public portion of our Website. We do use cookies in certain instances to improve the end-user experience in the Members Only portions of our Website. If you delete our cookies from your computer, your experience on our Website will revert to a default state. We reserve the right to use cookies as necessary to meet the needs of our website visitors.

Collection of Information about Children. SSCM does not knowingly collect, use, or maintain any information through our websites from children who are under the age of 13.

Legal Compliance
It is SSCM’s intent to comply with all applicable laws. SSCM may disclose personal information when required by law. Examples include responding to a subpoena or conducting a fraud investigation. SSCM may also share your information when authorized by you.

SSCM is committed to providing the necessary security needed to protect information entrusted to its care. SSCM takes reasonable precautions to protect our visitors’ personal information with the information protected via an array of physical, administrative, and technical security methods.
