Online Privacy Policy

Protecting your privacy and safeguarding your personal information is one of our highest priorities. The following Privacy Statement explains how we collect and use your information, but shall not be construed as a contractual promise.


Use of Links

Throughout our web pages, we provide links to other servers which may contain information of interest to our readers. We take no responsibility for, and exercise no control over, the organizations, views or accuracy of the information contained on other servers.

Creating a text link from your website to our site does not require permission.

Use of Text and Images

If you would like to publish information that you find on our website, please send your request to info@specialolympicsva.org.

Information about using our logo and images is available from our Senior Director of Public Relations, Holly Claytor, at hclaytor@specialolympicsva.org.

Accessibility

If you have suggestions on how to make the site more accessible, please contact us at info@specialolympicsva.org.

Analytics and Pixels

We use the information that Google Analytics collects from this site in many ways. For example, we may use it to measure the number of visitors to different sections or to help us make our site more useful to visitors. In addition, we use "pixels," or transparent GIF files, to help manage online advertising. These pixels do not collect identifying information.

Online Submissions and Communications

If you complete an online form and share your personally identifying information, we will use your information in the manner you requested or we will use it to reply to your question. We may use your contact information to send further details about our organization or to contact you about future opportunities to engage with us.

Online Donation

If you make an online contribution from our website, we may use your contact information to send further information about our organization or to contact you in case there is a question in regards to your online transaction. If you have questions about your online contribution or would like to opt-out of donor communications with us, please contact Aliza Tekavec, Development and Donor Experience Manager, at atekavec@specialolympicsva.org. Please note that we occasionally exchange our donor name and address list with other reputable nonprofit organizations to keep our costs down. If shared, the other nonprofit organization is only permitted to use such information for a one-time mailing and cannot use it for telemarketing purposes. You can opt out of this exchange at any time by contacting us at DonorServices@SpecialOlympics.org and providing your complete name and address.

Sending us an Email

You also may decide to send us personally identifying information, for example, in an email message containing a question or comment, or by filling out a web form that provides us this information. We use personally identifying information from email to respond to your requests. We may forward your email to other employees who are better able to answer your questions.

Opt-Out or Change Your Contact Information

If you would like to opt-out of communications, please click on the opt-out link at the bottom of any of our e-mails or contact Aliza Tekavec, Development and Donor Experience Manager, at atekavec@specialolympicsva.org. Aliza can also assist you in updating contact information previously provided to us. While you cannot remove yourself from our database, we can assist you in preventing any unwanted communication.

Third Party Advertising Cookies Opt-Out

We may allow third parties to place cookies on our site for advertising purposes. This Privacy Policy does not cover the collection methods or use of the information collected by these vendors. These vendors have their own privacy policies and may be members of the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI").
