Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. This notice explains our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is used at our Website (www.purpleswans.org).

Collection of Personal Information

Purple Swans Corporation (Purple Swans) may collect certain personally identifiable information (“personal information”) about you when you visit our Website.  Examples of personal information we may collect include your name, address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address. 
 

We may have access of certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our Website, including, but not limited to, the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using, and the domain name of your Internet service provider.

Use of Personal Information

PURPLE SWANS will only use your personal information where we have a lawful basis to do so. The following are examples of how we might use your personal information:

  • Providing Community Services: We will use and disclose personal information in such a manner as we believe is reasonably necessary to provide community services. 

  • Administration: We may use your personal information in managing your relationship with PURPLE SWANS including providing you information on our community engagement and updates that we consider may be relevant, arranging and hosting events, and identifying where we may make improvements in our services.

 

We use personal information you provide solely to respond to your inquiry or process your request you have completed on various sections of our Website.

 

We typically will not contact you about other matters, unless you specifically request it, nor will we share, rent, or sell your personal information outside PURPLE SWANS, except where we are required to share your information with any third parties who provide services on our behalf.

 

It is possible, though unlikely, that we might be forced to disclose personal information in response to legal process or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, for example, in response to a court order, subpoena or a law enforcement agency's request.

 

We use non-personally identifiable information to analyze site usage (such as aggregated information on the pages visited by our users), which allows us to improve the design and content of our site.

 

We cannot guarantee the privacy of personal information you transmit over the web or that may be collectable in transit by others, including contractors who provide services to PURPLE SWANS.

 

We are committed to complying with all applicable privacy laws and regulations. To the extent we receive personal information from a resident of the European Union, we will comply with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Third Party Sites

Our Website may contain links to other websites.  The data privacy practices of those third-party websites might differ from PURPLE SWANS’. You should consult the other websites' privacy notices for information on their privacy practices as PURPLE SWANS has no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.

PURPLE SWANS may post information on our Website about programs and events that are sponsored by or co-sponsored by other organizations. If you choose to register through our Website for any of these events, PURPLE SWANS will have no control over the third-party sponsors' use of this information. As for our own use of your registration information, that will be handled by us as if you had registered by telephone or on paper.

Cookies

When you visit our Website, we and third parties with whom we have contracted to provide services to PURPLE SWANS may collect "Site Usage Data," which is non-personally identifiable information relating to your use of our Website such as what Website pages you visit. The Website Usage Data could include your MAC address, operating system version, type of computer and browser type.  This data could also include demographic data, such as a Website visitor's geographic location. To enhance your experience on our Website, we and our service providers may use "cookies" on our Website.

A "cookie" is a piece of information that a web server may place on your computer when you visit a website. Cookies are commonly used by websites to improve the user experience and have not been known to transmit computer viruses or otherwise harm your computer. Many cookies last only through a single website session or visit. Others may have an expiration date or may remain on your computer until you delete them.

We may use cookies for a number of purposes - for example, to maintain continuity during a user session, to gather Website Usage Data for research and other purposes, to store your preferences for certain kinds of information and marketing offers, or to store certain information so that you do not have to provide this information every time you return to one of our Website. Our cookies will track only your activity relating to your online activity on our Website, and will not track your other Internet activity. Our cookies do not gather personal information.

You can decide if and how your computer will accept a cookie by configuring your preferences or options in your browser. However, if you choose to reject cookies, you may not be able to use certain online products and services offered on the Website or certain features of our Website.

PURPLE SWANS may occasionally use other companies to set cookies on our Website and gather Website Usage Data for PURPLE SWANS. In some cases, PURPLE SWANS may also use another company to operate web servers for our Website.  PURPLE SWANS uses the cookie information gathered by these companies in the same manner as stated in this Privacy Policy.

IP Addresses

When you visit and interact with our Website, PURPLE SWANS and third parties with whom we have contracted to provide services for us may collect Internet Protocol (IP) addresses (each an "IP Address"). An IP Address is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Your IP Address is identified and logged automatically whenever you visit the Website, along with the time(s) of your visit(s), your geographic location and the page(s) that you visited. PURPLE SWANS uses this information to determine the locations of our Website visitors to better understand from where our visitors come. PURPLE SWANS also may use this information to enhance our Website or for other lawful purposes.

Certain pages on our Website contain "web beacons" (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs). These web beacons allow third parties to obtain information such as the IP Address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, the type of browser used to view the page, and the information in cookies set by the third party.
