This statement is designed to assist you in understanding how we collect, use and safeguard information you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions when using the Boosters ‘ web site. It will be continuously assessed against new technologies, business practices and the needs of our visitors.
Section A. Information Collected and How it is Used
When you visit our Web site you may provide us with two types of information: Web site use information collected automatically on an aggregate basis as you browse our Web site, and personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis.
1) Web Site Information Collected and Stored Automatically
If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the Web site, read pages, or download information, we will gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you personally. We automatically collect and store only the following information about your visit:
- The Internet domain (for example, “abccompany.com” if you use a private Internet access account) and IP address (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are browsing the Internet) from which you access our Web site;
- The type of browser and operating system used to access our site;
- The date and time you access our site;
- The pages you visit; and
- If you linked to the Westfield School Boosters Association Web site from another Web site, the address of that Web site.
We use this information to help us make our site more useful to visitors – to learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors use. We do not track or record information about individuals and their visits. IP addresses are not linked to identifiable information.
2) Personal Information
“Personal information” is information about a natural person that identifies a specific individual. Personal information includes such things as an individual’s name, address, and phone number. A domain name or Internet protocol address is not considered personal information.
We collect no personal information about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us by sending us e-mail or make a donation. You may choose not to contact us by e-mail, make a donation on line, or provide any personal information using an online form. Your choice not to participate in these activities will not impair your ability to browse the Boosters’ Web site and read or download any information posted on the site.
If you choose to provide us with personal information — by sending an e-mail or by filling out a form with your personal information and submitting it to us through our Web site — we use that information to respond to your message and to help us get you the information you have requested. Moreover, we do not create individual profiles with the information you provide or give it to any private organizations. The Westfield School Boosters Association does not collect information for commercial marketing or sell any information provided by users through this Web site to third parties.
The Boosters does not plan to divulge personal information collected or information disclosed voluntarily, but may be required to do so pursuant to State or Federal law.

You must provide contact information such as name, email and billing address and financial information such as credit card number and expiration date. We use this information for billing purposes and to fulfill your donation. If we have trouble processing a donation, we will use this information to contact you
Please note we use an outside credit card processing company to bill for donations. To the best of our knowledge, these companies do not use personally identifiable information for any other purpose. At your request, we will provide you our list of third party agents and you may assess their privacy policies on your own
4) E-mail Privacy Warning/Security
The security of your personal information is important to us. E-mail is not a secure medium. Personal information sent via the Internet can be intercepted.

Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
