Information We Collect
Information You Provide Directly
Our Services allow users to choose to provide us with personal information. If you sign up for email updates, fill out a contact form or make a donation, you may be asked to provide personal information (such as your name, email address, mobile phone number, mailing address, sign-in information (e.g., username and password), etc). If you prefer that we not collect personal information from you, please do not provide us with such information. Also, if you prefer that we not contact you in the future through use of this contact information, please do not provide us with such information. If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, please note that we include unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email. Further certain of our services involve communicating with you via text message, email or other written correspondence. Such communications are stored on our servers. Our communications in each suh medium (e.g., text message, email, etc.) provide distinct instructions on how your communication history with us in such medium can be deleted. Accordingly, if at any time you would like your correspondence in any given medium deleted, please follow the applicable instructions from our communications in such medium.
Credit Card Information
We recognize the importance of respecting the integrity of credit card and related contact information that you provide and limiting access only to certain third-party vendors (as discussed below). Also, we utilize software to encrypt credit card transactions, which works to protect card numbers and other confidential information so that it cannot be improperly viewed, intercepted or altered.
Donations in Honor or Memory of Another
You may also choose to make a donation in honor/ memory of someone. The person or family you designate will receive a notification with your name if you choose to send one. Any contact information that you provide about the person or family you designate will be used to honor your request to send a notification.
Information We Collect Automatically
Our Web servers and Web servers of third-party vendors (discussed below) automatically collect certain non-personally identified information, such as the pages a user visits, and the domain name of a user’s Internet service provider. We use this information to measure traffic and usage patterns. The servers also may log Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, or the location of your computer on the Internet, for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes, as well as for aggregate site usage statistics. Also, in some instances, we may use IP address logs to anonymously track session and website usage and behaviors. We do not share this information with other organizations nor do we link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. However, outside vendors (as discussed below) also may collect this information and use it for their own purposes.

Do Not Track
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in their browsers to let third parties know that they do not want to be tracked online. You can disable or enable this setting by changing the DNT settings in your browser. We do not track users across third party websites, and therefore do not respond to DNT signals, and except in the case of analytics cookies as described above, our Site limits tracking to the internal uses described above.
Earlybird Alliance does not authorize the collection of personally identifiable information about users for third party use through advertising technologies without user consent. However, some third party sites, including potentially those that have content embedded on this Site or to which this Site links, may keep track of your browsing activities and may set cookies on your browser.
If you are visiting such sites, your browser may allow you to set the DNT signal so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked. Please review their privacy policies to understand how you may be tracked. As noted, since our Site does not respond to DNT signals you may have set in your browser, we cannot fully control what third parties may do.

Non Personal Information
Third-party vendors we use in providing our Site may have access to and use anonymous information related to your visit to our Site, such as your IP address. These companies most often use non-personally identifiable information generated during your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or a third party web beacon to collect this information. In addition to setting cookies on your browser, they may also read cookies that are already there. To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice, you can visit www.networkadvertising.org.

Third-Party Website Links and Social Media Sites
Occasionally on our Site we offer links to third-party websites and social media sites. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies, and these third parties may be located in a jurisdiction with lesser data protection laws. We, therefore, have no control over the content and activities of these linked sites. These third parties may use this information to display advertisements on the Site and elsewhere online tailored to your interests, preferences, and characteristics.
Since our social media content is available to the general public, if you make a comment on a social media site, any information in your comment, as well as your profile name and any other public profile information, will be available to the general public to see.
How We Protect Personal Information

Sensitive/credit information you supply is transmitted directly to one of our payment gateway providers’ databases, and we do not have access to or retain your credit card information, i.e., your credit card number, expiration date, or card security code on our services.
We use reasonable measures to help protect information from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. You should understand that no data storage system or transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. Please note that information collected by third parties may not have the same security protections as information you submit to us, and we are not responsible for protecting the security of such information.
