Privacy Policy

The Paul Anderson Youth Home, Inc. (PAYH) values and respects your right to privacy. Your privacy is important to us, and so we are committed to protecting your privacy online and offline, and to that end have implemented and enforce the following policy.

Donor Information

We recognize that providing us with personal information is an act of trust. As stewards of what you have provided, we take and treat all financial information about any transaction you have with PAYH as highly confidential. Any information that is collected (your name, addresses, phone numbers, etc.) is done for internal use only. We do not sell, share, or exchange any donor names, addresses, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, or any other personal information with other organizations.

About the information we collect on the web and how we use that information:

It is our policy to collect and store only the personally identifying information that visitors to our website knowingly provide. We do not collect any personal information from casual visitors browsing our website. When you use the public areas of our website, you are doing so anonymously.

  • Internet Protocol Address:
    We collect an IP address from all visitors to our site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer or mobile device when you use the internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our site, analyze trends, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use for us to improve the site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt data before you send it to us. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our site that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of the Paul Anderson Youth Home. Regrettably, no data transmission over the internet is 100% secure. While we fully strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or completely guarantee the security of such information.
