Collecting and using personal
Welcome to the Louisville Metro Police
Foundation’s website. We appreciate your interest in our organization. When you
visit and navigate our sites and when you communicate with us via our website,
we will not collect personal information about you unless you provide us that
information voluntarily. Any non-public personal information that you may
provide via our site will be used solely for the purpose stated on the page
where it is collected. The Louisville Metro Police Foundation will not
sell, license, transmit or disclose this information outside of our Foundation
and its affiliated companies unless (a) expressly authorized by you, (b)
necessary to enable the Louisville Metro Police Foundation contractors or
agents to perform certain functions for us, or (c) required or permitted by
law. In all cases, we will disclose the information consistent with applicable
laws and regulations and we will require the recipient to protect the information
and use it only for the purpose it was provided.
By “personal information,” we mean data that is
unique to an individual, such as a name, address, Social Security number,
e-mail address, or telephone number. From time to time, we may request personal
information from you at our sites in order to deliver requested materials to
you, respond to your questions, or deliver a product or service.
The Louisville Metro Police Foundation does not
request a SSN as a form of validation!
We welcome your comments or questions about our
websites and have provided e-mail boxes for that purpose. We will share your
comments and questions with our customer service representatives and those
employees most capable of addressing your questions and concerns.
Please note that your e-mail, like most, if not
all, non-encrypted Internet e-mail communications, may be accessed and viewed
by other Internet users, without your knowledge and permission, while in
transit to us. For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use
e-mail to communicate information to us that you consider confidential. If you
wish, you may contact us instead by telephone at the numbers provided at
various locations on our website.
There are some locations on our website where we
have made special provisions for a more secure environment in which we can
exchange information with you. At each of these locations, we will provide you
with appropriate instructions.
“cookies” and “tags”
You should also be aware that when you visit our
websites, we collect certain information that does not identify you personally,
but provides us with “usage data,” such as the number of visitors we
receive or what pages are visited most often. This data helps us to analyze and
improve the usefulness of the information we provide at these websites.
Like most commercial website owners, we may use what is known as
“cookie” technology. A “cookie” is an element of data that
a website can send to your browser when you link to that website. It is not a
computer program and has no ability to read data residing on your computer or
instruct it to perform any step or function. By assigning a unique data element
to each visitor, the website is able to recognize repeat users, track usage
patterns and better serve you when you return to that site. The cookie does not
extract other personal information about you, such as your name or address.
We may also use what is known as
“client-side page tagging”, which uses code on each page to write
certain information about the page and the visitor to a log when a page is
rendered by your web browser. This technique is also commonly used on
running on your computer, but it is limited to providing information about the
page that you are requesting and the configuration of your browser. It will not
read any of your data files, or execute any additional programs. It does not
extract any personal information about you, such as your name or address. You
prevent you from using all of our website’s functions.
Linking to other sites
From time to time, the Louisville Metro Police
Foundation website may provide links to other websites, not owned or controlled
by the Louisville Metro Police Foundation, that we think might be useful or of
interest to you. We cannot, however, be responsible for the privacy practices
used by other website owners or the content or accuracy of those other websites.
Links to various non-Foundation websites do not constitute or imply endorsement
by the Louisville Metro Police Foundation of these websites, any products or
services described on these sites, or of any other material contained in them.
The Louisville Metro Police Foundation has adopted and adheres to stringent
security standards designed to protect non-public personal information at
aetna.com against accidental or unauthorized access or disclosure. Among the
safeguards that the Foundation has developed for this site are administrative,
physical and technical barriers that together form a protective firewall around
the information stored at this site. We periodically subject our site to
simulated intrusion tests and have developed comprehensive disaster recovery
