Website Privacy Statement
My Arms Wide Open® has developed this website (the "Website") as an electronic resource with information about our organization and its programs.

By using this Website, you signify your consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information in accordance with this statement.

During a visit to our Website, we do not collect personal information that identifies you as an individual, such as your name and contact information, unless you supply it voluntarily.

Information Automatically Collected
Nonidentifying Information - Like many other organizations’ websites, ours automatically collects certain nonidentifying information regarding website users, such as the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer, the IP address of your Internet Service Provider, the date and time you access our Website, the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our Website, the operating system you are using, and pages of our Website you visit. This nonidentifying information is used for our Website and system administration purposes and to improve the Website. Your nonidentifying information may be used and permanently archived for future use in order to facilitate your online experience and to gather broad demographic information.

We make no attempt to link this information with the identity of individuals visiting our Website. We may, however, review server logs for security purposes, for example to detect intrusions into our network. The possibility therefore exists that server log data, which contains visitors’ IP addresses, could in instances of criminal malfeasance be used to trace and identify individuals. In such instances, raw data logs would be shared with appropriate investigative bodies authorized to investigate such breaches of security.

Cookies - Our Website use "cookies", a technology that installs information on a website user’s computer to permit the website to recognize future visits using that computer. Cookies enhance the convenience and use of a website. You may choose to decline cookies if your browser permits, but doing so may affect your use of our Website and your ability to access certain features of our Website.
