Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is non-public information that may include your name, address, phone number and other related information that you provide to us when we provide you with a service, or when you make a donation. This information is personally identifiable.

Our Commitment to Your Privacy
This Privacy Policy tells you what PII we may collect from you, how we might share your PII, and what you can do to limit our sharing of your PII.

Our commitment adopts the guidelines of the Direct Marketing Association Privacy Promise to American consumers. We agree to:

(1) notify patrons of their ability to opt out of any potential information exchanges with our affiliates;
(2) honor patrons requests to not transfer their information to our affiliates; and
(3) honor patrons requests to not receive solicitations from our affiliates.

What Information We Do Collect
Patrons of the Tuidang Movement websites control what information we receive. When you visit our websites, you do not need to provide any PII.

If you subscribe or make a donation to our cause, you must provide PII in order for us to service your request, or accept your donation. We collect your PII in the following ways:

Upon Donation
When you donate, we collect your name and email address, as well as any other information you provide to us. We do not collect payment source information, as that would be provided to third-party websites, and we do not have access to that PII (i.e. PayPal, justgive.org).

Upon Subscription
When you subscribe, we collect your email address, as well as any other information you may provide to us.

Online Forms
We may utilize online forms. Information you enter into these online forms may contain PII.

Automated Computer Information Collection
Certain computer information is automatically collected from patrons of our websites, which may include the type of device used, web browser, but it is used in aggregate and as such is not considered PII.

We do receive IP addresses and certain information such as the related country and city. We also receive the websites our patrons entered from and exited to. These data allow us to analyze trends and improve the quality of the information presented on our websites.

Cookies
We do not use cookies.

How We Use PII
PII that patrons provide us is used internally to send thank you letters, to send newsletters either by mail or by email, subscription registration, and to analyze statistics and demographic information. We are also required by law to submit certain PII of donors to the IRS in annual filings.

In some cases, we may combine information patrons provide online or through print forms, together with publicly available information, as well as information we may receive from third-parties. This information is used to enhance the experience of our patrons as well as the services that we offer.

In some cases, patrons provide us with PII in online or print petitions. This may include names, addresses, zip codes, email addresses and telephone numbers. In some cases we compile these electronically to provide further services. We also submit these petitions along with the corresponding PII as set out on the petition itself.

Storage of PII
We store PII electronically on our servers in Taiwan as well as in our head office in New York. Only staff specially authorized can access your PII, and they are only authorized to use PII as provided in this Privacy Policy.

In the event that we are required to comply with state and/or federal laws by disclosing your PII, we will do so, whether this is to assist law enforcement or governmental agencies in preventing or investigating fraud or other crimes, or in response to a court order. We will only provide such PII as is requested for legal purposes.

We will under no circumstances comply with any request for disclosure of PII that may originate from the Peoples Republic of China.

Changing Your Information
Patrons may change or delete their PII at any time by using the tools provided on our website, or alternatively by using the Contact Us information on our website. You may also send a request by email to [email protected] or by letter to:

Protecting the Privacy of Children
We adhere to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). While our website is not designed for use by anyone under the age of 18 (child), we recognize that a child may attempt to access it. We will not knowingly collect PII from a child. As a parent or a guardian, if you believe your child is accessing our website, please contact us. To prevent malicious removal of information, we may request proof of identification, but we will comply with valid requests to remove information. We will remove any information we discover to have originated from a child. In so doing, we will not use the information for any purpose, and we will not disclose the information to third-parties. We do not verify the age of our patrons, and we do not have any liability to do so. If you are under the age of 18, please seek the permission of a parent or guardian before accessing our website.

Our Email Policy
We comply with the federal CAN-SPAM Act. Patrons may always opt out of receiving further email correspondence from us. We do not sell, rent, or trade your email address to any affiliated organizations nor to third-party organizations.

Our Security Policy
We use reasonable physical, technical and administrative security methods to protect PII that resides on our servers as well as other systems and storage. This includes mechanisms to protect our patrons’ PII under our control from loss, misuse, or alteration, such as redundant firewalls and 128-bit SSL encryption of all transactional information. In addition, all employees are kept up-to-date on our security and Privacy Policy. Only employees who are specifically authorized to access PII to perform a specific job are granted access to it.

Although your privacy is very important to us, due to the existing legal, regulatory and security environment, we cannot fully ensure that your private communications and other PII will not be disclosed to third parties. For example, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Additionally, in the unlikely event we need to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries, we can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you that may be in our possession to private entities, law enforcement or other government officials if necessary and appropriate.

Use of Credit Cards
Patrons may donate to the Tuidang Movement. We use third-party services for such transactions and have no control over how they may use your PII. We do not receive credit card information from those third-party services. If patrons do provide us with credit card information, we will not keep it or store it.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy
It may from time-to-time become necessary to modify or update our Privacy Policy. We may modify our Privacy Policy, in whole or in part, to address changes in legal or our business practices. Typically, we will notify patrons by posting a message on our website, as well as update the date of the Privacy Policy. We will not notify patrons individually. We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy periodically to ensure you still agree with it.
