We have created this statement to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy. We do not collect

information to us. Providing such information is strictly voluntary. This policy is your guide to how we
will handle information we learn about you from your visit to our Web site.

 Reading or Downloading

We collect and store only the following information about you: the name of the domain from
which you access the Internet (for example, aol.com, if you are connecting from an America
Online account, or princeton.edu if you are connecting from Princeton University’s domain), the
date and time you access our site, and the Internet address of the Web site from which you linked

We use the information we collect to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of
our site, and to help us make our site more useful to visitors.

 Online Donations

We will not sell, rent or trade your personal or contact information with anyone else, nor will we
send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations.

If you complete the donation form and share your personally identifying information, this

You also may decide to send us personally identifying information, for example, in an electronic
mail message containing a question or comment, or by filling out a Web form that provides us
this information. We use personally identifying information from email primarily to respond to
your requests. We may forward your email to other employees who are better able to answer
your questions. We may also use your email to contact you in the future about our programs that
may be of interest.

We want to be very clear: We will not obtain personally identifying information about you when
you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us. Providing such
information is strictly voluntary. Except as might be required by law, we do not share any

If you sign up for one of our email lists, we will only send you the kinds of information you have
requested. We won’t share your name or email address with any outside parties.

For children who visit our site, special rules apply. We do not request personal information about
children, such as first and last name or street address and city. When kids send email to us, their
