Our Commitment to Privacy
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. Our aim is for you to always feel informed and empowered with respect to your privacy on the Elder Law of Michigan (ELM) website.
The Information We Collect:
This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on ELM’s website. On some pages including our contact page, individuals may request resources/referrals to programs, register to receive materials, or make a tax-deductible contribution through a third party payments processor. Please visit the PayPal website to learn more about your privacy rights with those services.
The Way We Use Information:
We use the information you provide about yourself when submitting information only to facilitate your request. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that request.
We use return email addresses to enroll users in who request to subscribe to our newsletter and to respond to visitors who use our web site contact form. Such addresses are not shared with outside parties.
We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with funders and partnering organizations. For example, we may report to a funder that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of consumers and Z number of professionals filled out our contact form, but we do not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals. To this end, we also track website trends without identifying individual visitors.
Individuals may manage their receipt of any marketing communications or electronic newsletters by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link located on the bottom of any Elder Law of Michigan marketing email. Any “unsubscribe” requests will remove individuals from all of Elder Law of Michigan marketing contact lists, and a user would need to send a request to email@example.com or to a specific program contact to be added back to a mailing list.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
Our Commitment to Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. We take commercially reasonable steps to protect the Personal Information and Other Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Please understand, however, that no security system is impenetrable. We encourage individuals to take special precaution in deciding what information you send to us via email.
How You Can Access or Correct Your Information
You can access and/or correct any personally identifiable information that we collect and/or maintain by sending a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. This includes updates to program registration, organizational contacts, or personal contact information for inclusion on Elder Law of Michigan mailing lists.
To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
Privacy Concerns for Donors, Sponsors, and Funders
We will not sell, share or trade our donors’ names or personal information with any other entities, nor send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations.
This policy applies to all information received by Elder Law of Michigan, both through our website and third-party fundraising platforms (i.e. PayPal), as well as any electronic, written, or oral communications. To the extent that donations are processed through a third party platform, our donors’ information will only be used for purposes necessary to process the donation.
Our Services do not address anyone under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personal identifiable information from children under 13. In the case we discover that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we immediately delete this from our servers. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with personal information, please contact us so that we will be able to do necessary actions.
