Financial Information You Choose to Provide
If you choose to make an online donation to the PANC, you will have to provide your credit card billing information. As this information is collected and transferred over the Internet to our secure server, it is encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, the industry standard security technology that is designed to protect sensitive information.

If you are making a donation, the credit card information that you provide at the time of donation is used only to process your donation and will not be used for any other purposes.

Information Automatically Collected and Stored
As is true of most websites you enter, we automatically collect and store some information about your computer and your visit and store it in log files. This information includes information such as your computer's (or your ISP's) Internet Protocol (IP) address (this is not your e-mail address); the domain from which you access the Internet (e.g., "AOL.com" or "Princeton.edu"); the name, version, and specifications of your computer and your computer's operating system; the Internet address of the website, if any, from which you came to our site; the date and time you arrived at our site and how long you spent on the site; and which pages you visited.

We use this information to formulate statistics (possibly with the help of outside experts) that show the number of visitors to the different sections of our site and to help us make our site more useful to visitors. For example, we use the browser information to help us design our website so that as many people as possible will be able to view the pages correctly. These statistics do not reveal personal information.

Your Help Is Needed
Although PANC does its best to protect your privacy on our site, we need your help. You have control over your own privacy. Think carefully before providing any personal information.

Although this site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control, no e-mail or web transmission is completely secure against interception. If you are worried because your communication is very sensitive, do not send it via email or submit it online.

Remember that we cannot protect your privacy once you leave our site, such as by "hyperlink." So when you visit other websites including webpages within www.PANC.org that belong to other organizations, check each one's privacy policy yourself, and be careful about the information you offer up.

You should be aware that in certain areas of this site we utilize personalization measures designed to make your site experience more enjoyable (i.e., personalized links in e-mail that allow data fields to be automatically populated with certain personal information). We need your help to protect the information embedded in these links. You should always keep your e-mail account information secure and not allow others to access your e-mail account.
