The RECOVER Initiative recognizes the importance of protecting the information we collect from visitors to our site. This document contains our Policy as to how we use and protect the information we acquire. Users can visit the site without revealing any personal information. If one chooses to give us personal information via the internet for the purposes of correspondence, processing an order, special site features and applications, or subscribing to a publication, this policy details how we will use such information.
The Information We Collect
The RECOVER Initiative collects personal identification information through account registration, order forms, application forms, or survey forms. In filling these forms out, you may be asked for contact information (name, address, telephone number, and email address), financial information (credit card related), and demographic information (age, gender, education level, the role played in practice, credentials, etc). As with most other Internet sites, our Web servers record the Internet Protocol (IP) address of each visitor. This IP address tells us from which domain (such as aol.com) you are visiting, but not your e-mail address. We use the information to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer the Web site more effectively, and to gather broad demographic information. When providing this personally identifiable information, you are indicating to us your consent that we use it in accordance with the terms and provisions of this Policy. This site utilizes cookies to keep track of the visitor’s shopping cart, for users to stay signed in, and for other purposes.
What We Do With the Information
We use contact information to send visitors information about RECOVER and its programs. The visitor’s contact information may also be used at other times when necessary—for example: contact may be related to an course enrollment or online purchase if warranted. Stored email addresses may be used for internal correspondence with our user base. If users tell us that they do not wish to have this information used as a basis for further contact, we will respect those wishes. We do keep track of the domains from which people visit us. We analyze this data for trends, insights and statistics, and then we discard it. RECOVER may on occasion share segments of its mailing list with non-profit organizations for mutually beneficial programs. We do not sell our mailing list to for-profit entities. The visitor’s financial information is used to execute purchase and donation transactions. We share this information with credit card and check processing organizations as necessary to complete the transactions. RECOVER does not retain the identifying financial account information once a transaction is completed.
