Auto­mat­ic­ally Collec­ted Data.  We auto­mat­ic­ally collect and store IP addresses and domain names of visit­ors’ computers.  We also track the number, frequency, and length of visits to each page. If you visit our website from another website, we may also identify that source link.  Auto­mat­ic­ally collec­ted data is used to determ­ine which sections of our website are the most visited and by whom, in order to make our website a more useful resource.
Regis­tra­tion. We do not ask that you register or enter any personal inform­a­tion to access or use most areas of the Site. However, you may choose to subscribe to certain news­let­ters distrib­uted by the Bren­nan Center or to join our mail­ing list, which may require you to enter certain personal inform­a­tion. If you have any ques­tions about modi­fy­ing or delet­ing your inform­a­tion, you can contact us directly at digital@bren­
Dona­tions and Gifts; Secure Trans­ac­tions. In order to make a dona­tion or other gift, you will be required to provide personal inform­a­tion about your­self.  When you donate via the Site, your dona­tion is processed via Network For Good, and the Bren­nan Center does not have access to your credit card data. Other dona­tion inform­a­tion (i.e., your name, address, dona­tion amount) is trans­mit­ted to the Bren­nan Center via a secure connec­tion.

2. Other Inform­a­tion We Collect.
Cook­ies; Track­ing Mech­an­isms.  The Bren­nan Center uses cook­ies to prepop­u­late forms for users, to auto-popu­late forms, and to track user patterns on the Site. These cook­ies help us under­stand what parts of the Site are most inter­est­ing to our users. The inform­a­tion in the cookie includes a user’s IP address and is trans­mit­ted to and stored by Google. You may at any time delete any cook­ies by using the relev­ant option of your Inter­net or mobile browser or by delet­ing the cook­ies on your hard drive or mobile device.
We track open rates, click-throughs and the IP address of Site users to meas­ure the effect­ive­ness of our campaigns and discour­age fraud­u­lent uses.  We may employ web beacons to help us compile aggreg­ated stat­ist­ics regard­ing the oper­a­tions of the Site.
Analyt­ics. The Bren­nan Center has imple­men­ted Google Analyt­ics to better under­stand our website visit­ors and to help refine our online ad campaign strategies.  You can opt-out of Google Analyt­ics by modi­fy­ing your Ads Settings or by down­load­ing this browser exten­sion. For more inform­a­tion on how Google Analyt­ics may use your data, you may review its policy located at this link.
Using the settings of your Inter­net or mobile browser, you can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cook­ies. Consult your browser Help menu or the vendor docu­ment­a­tion for your specific soft­ware to learn the correct way to modify your cook­ies. If you choose to turn off cook­ies, you may not have access to many features that make your brows­ing of our Site smoother, and some of our services may not func­tion prop­erly. If you continue to use our Site without chan­ging your settings, you consent to our use of cook­ies and other tools on the Site.
If you do not want us to collect inform­a­tion about your geographic loca­tion, you should disable the tech­no­logy that trans­mits this inform­a­tion.

3. Use/Shar­ing of Your Inform­a­tion.
The Bren­nan Center may disclose certain personal inform­a­tion to third parties, (i) to manage our website and data­base with the help of service providers (who are oblig­ated to main­tain the confid­en­ti­al­ity of any provided personal inform­a­tion), (ii) as part of our normal busi­ness oper­a­tions, (iii) to send you commu­nic­a­tions about your inter­ac­tions with us or about features of the Site, or (iv) as required by law or reques­ted by govern­mental or law enforce­ment author­it­ies, subpoena, court order or discov­ery request, or when we other­wise believe in good faith that such disclos­ure is appro­pri­ate in connec­tion with any activ­ity that may viol­ate the law or the rights of others, threaten the safety or secur­ity of any person or prop­erty (includ­ing the Site) or expose us to liab­il­ity.
In addi­tion, the Bren­nan Center may occa­sion­ally share donor data with organ­iz­a­tions that we think may interest our donors (“Shar­ing Organ­iz­a­tions”).  This process is care­fully controlled through a third party service provider. The Shar­ing Organ­iz­a­tion does not see our data, nor does it know what inform­a­tion is contained therein other than the names and contact inform­a­tion of those indi­vidu­als who respond to its commu­nic­a­tion.  If you prefer that we not include your data for shar­ing in this manner may opt out by (a) send­ing an email to the “opt-out” mail­box iden­ti­fied in the dona­tion confirm­a­tion email if the dona­tion is made online; (b) send­ing an email to dona­tion­s@bren­, or (c) check­ing the relev­ant box on a dona­tion slip received in the mail.  Please allow up to six weeks for processing of such requests.
