Personal Information:
We do not collect personally identifiable information from you unless you provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly.  If you donate for example, we may collect the following information: Name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and amount of donation.  Personal information may be needed for certain optional online activities, such as donating to us, requesting information or participating in some other interactive process on our web site.  If you choose to make a contribution, the above described information is collected and we maintain a record of your contribution.  If you participate in an online request, we may have to gather additional information in order to adequately respond.  Such information will vary with the request, but often includes name, address, phone and email addresses.

Data Usage:  We limit the use of information provided to us on our web site to the following:

Internal Use:
If you do not make a service request or donation or otherwise identify yourself, we will have no personally identifiable identification about you.  We will only use aggregate information derived, in part, from your use of our web site to improve our site and our service to you.

If you provide personal information, we may enter your name in our constituent database and contact you in order to:  complete voluntary surveys seeking feedback for quality and service improvement purposes; supply you with information regarding our programs and services; request voluntary time or monetary contributions to OHAR; and/or request your participation in any OHAR sponsored activity.

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the correct use of information, we maintain physical, electronic and administrative safeguards including encryption.  Our staff is educated about the importance of safeguarding your information and we are committed to protecting your confidentiality.  Nevertheless, OHAR makes no warranty, guarantee or representation that this web site is protected from viruses, security threats or other vulnerabilities, or that your information will always be secure.
