Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy 

Innovation Guild (IG) is a Seattle Children’s Hospital Guild.   IG is committed to providing its users with an Internet experience that respects and protects their personal privacy choices and concerns.

We have created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for the website.

This website contains links to other websites. IG is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.

Web Traffic Data Collected

When you use our website, we collect anonymous information. Anonymous information is information about how you use our website (such as places visited, and searches performed).

Anonymous information also includes the domain names and/or IP addresses of browsers that visit our website, time of day the website was visited and other non-personally identifiable information. Anonymous information is information that is not tied to any individual but helps to characterize IG users to improve our services.

We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our website. We use cookies to identify returning visitors, so that they do not have to reenter a password whenever they return to our website.

Personal Information Collected

Our website uses forms for customers to request information, products and services or otherwise provide input to the website. We collect a visitor’s contact information (such as an email address) and financial information (such as an account or credit card numbers) in various forms on the website. This information is used to fulfill orders and process payments or donations.

The customer’s contact information is also used to get in touch with the visitor when necessary. For example, we might have a question about the processing of an order or we may require more information to satisfy the visitor’s interest in any of our initiatives or offerings. If a user so requests, we may use the contact information to send the user additional information about IG.

Newsletters, membership, and subscriptions

When you join the guild, receive newsletters or subscribe to mailing lists, IG maintains information about you, which may include your name and your email address.

This information is used to support your ability to select the content areas in which you are interested, to collect traffic data and to help IG to direct information to appropriate people.

The personally identifiable information we collect is not used for any purposes other than those listed above and will not be not disclosed to anyone other than IG, Seattle Children’s and its partners, contractors and agents, unless necessary to comply with a court order or other legal process, or to protect the rights or property interests of Seattle Children’s.

You may request to be removed from email lists by clicking on “unsubscribe” at the end of newsletters.

You agree to cooperate with us in immediately stopping any unauthorized co-branding, framing, or linking to the Website.
