We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law or protect our rights.
We don’t store personal information unless required for our operation.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals.  If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please email us at monica@muddnickfoundation.org.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Mudd Nick Foundation collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.  Mudd Nick Foundation’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Mudd Nick Foundation’s visitors use its website.  From time to time, Mudd Nick Foundation may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Mudd Nick Foundation also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. Mudd Nick Foundation only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Mudd Nick Foundation’s website choose to interact with Mudd Nick Foundation in ways that require Mudd Nick Foundation to gather personally-identifying information.  The amount and type of information that Mudd Nick Foundation gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.  For example, we ask visitors who sign up to be volunteers to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Mudd Nick Foundation – for example, by registering and paying for the annual charity auction dinner and golf tournament– are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions.  In each case, Mudd Nick Foundation collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Mudd Nick Foundation.  Mudd Nick Foundation does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.  And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

By using the Mudd Nick Foundation website, you consent to the transfer of such information to employees, contractors and affiliated organizations.  Mudd Nick Foundation will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Mudd Nick Foundation discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Mudd Nick Foundation believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Mudd Nick Foundation, third parties or the public at large.  If you are a registered user of the Mudd Nick Foundation website and have supplied your email address, Mudd Nick Foundation may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Mudd Nick Foundation.  We expect to keep this type of email to a minimum.  If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.  Mudd Nick Foundation takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
