On Privacy Practices
The foundation's public Web site is at www.valencia.org, which is hosted by Valencia College. Personal data from those who have signed up to be on the foundation's mailing list is stored in a secured database on a college server.

On Information Collection
When you browse any of the foundation's Web pages, you do so anonymously. We do not collect personal information, including your e-mail address, unless you intentionally share it with us via our secure, encrypted transmission. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which parts of our Web sites you visit and how long you spend there. But we do not link your IP address to anything personally identifiable. The only other information automatically provided to us is the type of computer and operating system you are using. Your browser supplies us with this information.

In aggregate, these data are used to inform the foundation on which parts of the sites are being used most frequently, and about which reports, studies, press releases, success stories and other information are of most interest to our readers.

Those signing up to be on the foundation's mailing list or registering to subscribe to Valencia Foundation E-News voluntarily give us their name, e-mail address, home or business postal address, telephone and fax numbers, and other information. They also voluntarily check boxes on a form to indicate interest in one or more of the foundation's program areas. This information is kept strictly confidential in a secured and encrypted environment.

If you supply us with your postal address on-line you may receive periodic mailings from us with information on the college, the foundation, philanthropy and community partners. If you do not wish to receive such mailings, please let us know by e-mailing bpritchett2@valenciacollege.edu.

The information is not shared with other organizations for commercial or philanthropic purposes. The foundation may elect to send you information about Valencia College or our partner organizations, but we will never share any of your personal information with either the college or a partner.
