The World War II Foundation places a high priority on protecting the privacy of our global audience. This privacy policy was created in order to demonstrate the foundation’s commitment to the privacy of audiences, including students, educators, and all website users. This policy explains what types of information is collected by the World War II Foundation website, www.wwiifoundation.org, and how this information is used.

What Personally Identifiable Information is Collected
Visitors that register for wwiifoundation.org and individuals that sign up to receive our e-communications voluntarily provide us with contact information, such as name and e-mail address and other information. The foundation may use this information for specific, limited purposes. The members of our audience may always “opt out” at any time in the relationship cycle, if they do not wish to receive messages. 

IP addresses
The World War II Foundation uses IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer www.wwiifoundation.org, and for statistical metrics used to track website visitor traffic.

Cookies
www.wwiifoundation.org uses “cookie” messages to automatically help provide better services for members of the online community. These messages remind us who you are and your preferences for our website. The “cookie” is placed in a user’s computer and is read when they return to the website to allow the website to lead users to the information and features they are most interested in. They also let us track your usage of www.wwiifoundation.org, so we know which parts of our sites are most popular. Users may reject cookies and cancel them by instructing their Web browsers accordingly.

How Your Information May Be Used
We use personal information to provide personalized service; to send e-mail alerts; to answer requests; to process membership applications, and more. Users may choose to opt out at any time, which will cease all communications from our foundation. We may also use information to track visitors of our website. This lets our foundation see which of the features are the most popular to optimize users’ experiences. It also lets us provide aggregate data about our traffic (not identifying users personally, but showing how many visitors used which features, for example) to outside parties.

Email Privacy
The World War II Foundation does not provide, sell, or rent email addresses to anyone outside the organization.
