Privacy Policy

subpage-image

This privacy policy discloses the privacy practices for both National Fatherhood Initiative® www.fatherhood.org and www.fathersource.org websites (hereafter referred to as “these websites”).

This privacy policy applies solely to information collected by these websites. It will notify you of the following:

  1. What personally identifiable information is collected from you through the website, how it is used, and with whom it may be shared.
  2. What choices are available to you regarding the use of your data.
  3. The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.
  4. How you can correct inaccuracies in the information.

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing 

We are the sole owners of the information collected on these websites. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request (e.g. to ship an order).

Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about specials, new products or services, or changes to this privacy policy.

Your Access to and Control Over Information 

You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can take the following actions at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website:
   • Change or correct any data we have about you.
   • Have us delete any data we have about you.
   
Security 

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via these websites, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever sensitive information is collected (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page. Furthermore, we use PayPal® for processing order payments. Staff cannot view or access credit card information once an order has been processed.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (e.g. billing or customer service) are granted access to customer contact information.

Updates
Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will post updates on this page.

If you think that we are not abiding by our Privacy Policy, contact us immediately via telephone at 301-948-0599 or via email at info@fatherhood.org or fathersource@fatherhood.org.

Orders
We request information from you on our order form. To buy from us, you must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number and expiration date). We use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you.



Cookies 

We use "cookies" on the fatherhood.org site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a website visitor's hard drive to help us improve access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, cookies can enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our website. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our website.

Sharing

We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company (PayPal®) to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond filling your order.



Links

At times, these websites contain links to other websites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other websites. When our users leave our websites, we encourage them to read the privacy statements/policies of any other website that collects personally identifiable information.



Surveys 
From time-to-time our websites request information via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary. You may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Requests may include contact information (such as name and shipping address) and demographic information (such as zip code and age). We will use this information to monitor and improve the use and satisfaction of our websites and NFI resources.
