HousingLOUISIANA Privacy Policy

1. Privacy Policy
Welcome to HousingLOUISIANA.org, the website of HousingLOUISIANA, a statewide coalition of regional housing alliances and residents working to create a new housing system that guarantees safe decent and affordable housing for all.

HousingLOUISIANA knows that you care how information about you is used and shared. This Privacy Policy explains what information of yours will be collected by HousingLOUISIANA when you use our website and online services, how the information will be used, and how you can control the collection, correction and/or deletion of information. We will not use or share your information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy does not apply to information we collect by other means (including offline) or from other sources.

2. Information We Collect
User-Provided Information: You provide us information about yourself, such as your name and email address, if you sign up using a form on our site. If you correspond with us by email, we may retain the content of your email messages, your email address and our responses.

3. Third Party Services
HousingLOUISIANA uses The Action Network, EveryAction, Facebook, WordPress, and other services to organize our community of supporters. You can read more about those companies and their features on their respective websites. When you visit housinglouisiana.org, services associated with the campaign and our website may send one or more cookies – a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. A cookie does not collect personal information about you. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features of Housinglouisiana.org may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.

4. How We Use Your Information
We use the personal information you submit to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of Housing Louisiana.org. By providing HousingLOUISIANA your email address, you consent to our using the email address to send you messages such as newsletters and fundraising requests. If you do not want to receive such email messages, you may opt-out using the links in the footer of such messages.

5. How We Share Your Information
Personally Identifiable Information: HousingLOUISIANA will not rent or sell your personally identifiable information to others. HousingLOUISIANA may share your personally identifiable information with third parties for the purpose of providing HousingLOUISIANA.org services to you. If we do this, such third parties’ use of your information will be bound by this Privacy Policy. We may store personal information in locations outside the direct control of HousingLOUISIANA (for instance, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers).

Except as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy, HousingLOUISIANA will not disclose personal information to any third party unless required to do so by law or subpoena or if we believe that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the law, comply with legal process served on us or our affiliates, or investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities; (b) to enforce this policy, take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, or to protect the security or integrity of our site; and (c) to exercise or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of HOUSING LOUISIANA staff, our users or others.
6. How We Protect Your Information
HOUSING LOUISIANA cares about the integrity and security of your personal information and uses SSL where possible. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to HOUSING LOUISIANA or guarantee that your information on the service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. Your privacy settings may also be affected by changes to the functionality of third-party providers, such as social networks. HOUSING LOUISIANA is not responsible for the functionality or security measures of any third party.

7. Compromise of Personal Information
In the event that personal information is compromised as a result of a breach of security, HousingLOUISIANA will promptly notify those persons whose personal information has been compromised, in accordance with the notification procedures set forth in this Privacy Policy, or as otherwise required by applicable law.

8. Your Choices About Your Information
You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through Housing Louisiana.org, in which case HousingLOUISIANA may not be able to provide certain services to you. You can review and correct the information about you that HousingLOUISIANA keeps on file by contacting us directly at info[at]HousingLOUISIANA.org.

9. Children’s Privacy
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, HousingLOUISIANA does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13. If you are under 13, please do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 is allowed to provide any personal information to or on Housing Louisiana.org. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at info[at]HousingLOUISIANA.org

10. Links to Other Web Sites
We are not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from HousingLOUISIANA.org, nor the information or content contained therein. Please remember that when you use a link to go from HousingLOUISIANA.org to another website, our Privacy Policy is no longer in effect. Your browsing and interaction on any other website, including those that have a link on our website, is subject to that website’s own rules and policies. Please read over those rules and policies before proceeding.

11. Notification Procedures
It is our policy to provide notifications, whether such notifications are required by law or are for organizing purposes, to you via email notice, written or hard copy notice, or through conspicuous posting of such notice on Housinglouisiana.org, as determined by HousingLOUISIANA in its sole discretion. We reserve the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to you, provided that you may opt out of certain means of notification as described in this Privacy Policy.

12. Changes to Our Privacy Policy
If we change our privacy policies and procedures, we will post those changes on HousingLOUISIANA.org to keep you aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances we may disclose it. Changes to this Privacy Policy are effective when they are posted on this page.
