Privacy Policy

YouthLink knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. This notice describes our privacy policy. By visiting www.youthlinkmn.org, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.

THE SIMPLE VERSION

We use your contact information for in-house purposes only, and do not sell, rent, trade or share any information about you with third parties.

WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DOES YOUTHLINK GATHER?

Information You Give Us

We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. This includes subscriptions to our mailings or e-newsletter, donating to us, or completing forms on our website. We ask for personal information so that we can fulfill your request and return your message. If you choose not to provide any of that information, we may not be able to fulfill your request or complete online acceptance of your donation, but you will still be free to browse the other sections of the websites owned and administered by YouthLink.

Donations

All donations to YouthLink solicited and made through our website are completed securely online through GiveMN.org. Information about site security and how GiveMN.org handles privacy is available on that website.

Donor Privacy

Periodically YouthLink publishes lists of individuals and organizations that have supported it through contributions of cash or cash equivalents, goods or services, or volunteer time. YouthLink will provide all donors an opportunity to state that they prefer to remain anonymous and will make every reasonable effort to comply with the donor’s request.

YouthLink will follow appropriate practices to ensure that all contribution transactions are conducted in a secure manner and that all data related to donors is stored securely. Access to donor information will be limited to the Executive Director, Development Department staff, designated individuals in the Finance Department and designated on-site consultants. YouthLink will not sell, rent, trade or share donor-related data with any third-party person or organization.

Discontinue Contact Policy

Individuals and organizations may request, verbally or in writing, to have their names, postal addresses and email addresses removed from solicitation lists and other lists. YouthLink will confirm and comply with all such requests promptly. It is important to note that some requests may be received at a time when it is too late to stop a specific distribution project that is in process.

Links to Other Websites

The YouthLink website may contain links to third-party websites, including nonprofits and other organizations. YouthLink is not responsible for the privacy practice, policies, or content of such websites.

E-mail Communications

YouthLink publishes an e-newsletter on a periodic basis. You may subscribe to or unsubscribe from the email list at any time. Occasionally we may send announcements about YouthLink or selected affiliates to the mailing list. We do not sell, rent, trade or share our email list, although we may occasionally send an announcement that we think may be of interest on behalf of a partner.

Automatic Information

When you visit the YouthLink site, our servers make a log of basic information corresponding to the sites and pages you have visited. This information is stored primarily to track the effectiveness of our websites and individual sections and pages within them. At this time our general website does not use cookies (alphanumeric identifiers that can be stored by a visitor’s browser to identify them on a future visit, or during a single visit).

How Secure Is Information about Me?

All computers that receive or store personal information are secured by firewalls and other security measures. Additionally, sensitive data such as credit card numbers are encrypted using SSL and other industry standard measures, to provide an additional level of security.

Conditions of Use and Revisions

If you have concerns about privacy on the YouthLink website, please send us a note at youthlink@youthlinkmn.org, and we will try to resolve it as soon as we can. Changing business practices and circumstances may require that we make changes to this privacy policy from time to time. Any changes will be reflected on this website.
