How We Collect and Use Information
We collect two types of information: personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information. Personally identifiable information is information that identifies you or can be used to identify or contact you (“Personally Identifiable Information“). We also may collect information that by itself typically cannot be used to identify or contact you, such as demographic information (examples include age, profession or gender), IP addresses, browser types, domain names, and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of our Site (“Non-Personally Identifiable Information“).
Personally Identifiable Information we collect may include your name, email addresses, postal addresses, ZIP code, telephone number, date of birth, gender, age, user name and password, information about your relationship to persons with Down syndrome, such as such persons’ age and grade level, your interest in various offerings and services of DSN, and other information either desirable or necessary to provide quality services to our visitors. We may also collect information about you such as your use of the Site and communication preferences.
To the extent we are able to do so, we may link your Non-Personally Identifiable Information with your Personally Identifiable Information. We may also link information collected online with information we collect offline or that is collected online by third parties.
DSN may use the information collected from you to provide services which you have requested from us. We may also use your personal information to send you targeted messages, publications, news, and information about events and benefits. DSN may use third-party service providers to send and distribute e-mail and to perform other marketing and support functions. We also may use information we collect from you to improve the content of this Site, to enhance users’ experiences when visiting this Site, and to customize the content and layout of this Site for each individual user.
