North Atlantic Region Website Privacy Policy

The North Atlantic Region of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. respects the privacy of visitors to its websites. We have developed this privacy policy to explain to you how we collect and use information on our Regional websites. This privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") applies only to the operation of website and service located at www.akanorthatlantic.org, www.akanorthatlantic.org/help and www.akanorthatlantic.org/ocr ("The Service").

PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT

Through the Service, The North Atlantic Region of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. may collect information that can specifically identify you, such as your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and other similar information ("Personal Information"). Personal Information is only collected from you when you voluntarily submit it to us, such as when you register to use the Service.

USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

We will only use Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy, unless you have specifically consented to or opted-in to another use of your Personal Information.

We may use and disclose Personal Information for any of the following reasons:
  • to respond to requests you may make of us, including to provide services that you have requested and participate in activities that you have joined.
  • to contact you and/or provide you with general information as well as information about our products and services from time to time.
  • to share with agents, contractors or partners of The North Atlantic Region of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. in connection with services that these individuals or entities perform for, or on behalf of The North Atlantic Region of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. in connection with the Service. These agents, contractors or partners are restricted from using this information in any way other than to provide services for The North Atlantic Region of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. We may, for example, provide Personal Information to agents, contractors or partners for hosting our Service, for data processing services, or so that they can mail you information that you requested, but those parties cannot use your Personal Information for their own purposes unrelated to the work they are doing for us.
  • to respond to duly authorized information requests of governmental authorities or where required by law.
    to investigate suspected fraudulent activity in connection with the Service or violation of another party’s rights.
  • in connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of the business of the Service, in which case we will make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that any such buyer agrees to treat Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

We may collect Personal Information from third parties and merge that data with our existing databases. In such event, we will use any data so acquired in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We may automatically collect Non-Personal Information in connection with your use of the Service. "Non-Personal Information" means information that cannot be used to specifically identify you.

Non-Personal Information may include the date and time you visited the Service, the pages you visited, the website you came from, the type of browser you are using (e.g., Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using (e.g., Windows XP), your IP (Internet Protocol) address and the domain name and address of your Internet service provider.

The Service may also use "cookies" to collect Non-Personal Information and store any login information. A cookie is a piece of information that our webserver sends to your computer when you access the Service. When you come back to the Service, the Service will detect whether you have one of our cookies on your computer. Our cookies help provide additional functionality to the Service and help us analyze Service usage more accurately. For instance, the Service may set a cookie on your browser that keeps you from needing to remember and then enter a password more than once during a visit to the Service.

USE OF NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION

The North Atlantic Region of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. may use and disclose Non-Personal Information for any number of reasons and with any number of parties. However, such uses shall not include your Personal Information unless such use complies with the permitted uses of your Personal Information set forth above.

DISCLOSURES IN PUBLIC FORUMS

You should be aware that Personal Information which you voluntarily include and transmit online in a publicly assessable blog, forum, social networking site or other service, such as this Service, may be viewed and used by others. We are unable to control such uses of your Personal Information, and by using such services you assume the risk that the Personal Information provided by you may be viewed and used by third parties.

INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN

We have no intention of collecting Personal Information from children under the age of 13. If we become aware that Personal Information from a child under 13 has been collected without the consent of such child’s parent or guardian, we will use all reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database.

SECURITY

The security of your Personal Information is very important to us. We have put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect. Only those employees who need access to your information in order to perform their duties are authorized to have access to your Personal Information. However, we cannot guarantee that all communications between us or information stored on our servers will be free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers, and your use of our services demonstrates your assumption of this risk.
