HANGAR PRIVACY POLICY

In this policy, “Hangar” or “we” refers to Hangar staff, interns, volunteers, and consultants, all of whom are bound by law or contract to keep confidential information they receive as part of their assistance to Hangar.

 

Information We Gather

We may gather your information in a variety of circumstances. For instance:

Website Cookies

When you access pages on the Hangar website we send one or more cookies — a short string of characters — to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. This identity is used to authenticate and authorize your access to services provided on the website. We will not share this identify information with third parties unless required by law.

We use the Google Analytics service, which will also place cookies in your browser. This service allows us to analyze the performance of the website and make improvements where needed. We will not share any individually identifiable information collected with third parties unless required by law. We may share, or publish, aggregate information (e.g. number of unique visitors in a given month) to funders, policy makers, and the public.

You may disallow cookies in your browser and still read our site anonymously.

RSS Feeds

We use Google’s FeedBurner service for publishing RSS feeds. This service embeds tracking images into the feeds and enables us to track how many individuals subscribe to each feed and how often feed item links are selected to access full articles on the Hangar site. We will not share any individually identifiable information collected with third parties unless required by law. We may share, or publish, aggregate information (e.g. number of unique visitors in a given month) to funders, policy makers, and the public.

You may disallow image loading in your RSS feed reader and still view our posts anonymously.

Log Files

Our web server generates a log entry for each item requested. Logs are reviewed daily to detect problems with the site (e.g. broken links) and vulnerability scans. Reports are generated weekly to quantify requests to resources that aren’t trackable by Google Analytics (e.g., PDF documents, audio files, and video files.) We will not share any individually identifiable information collected with third parties unless required by law. We may share, or publish, aggregate information (e.g. number of unique visitors in a given month) to funders, policy makers, and the public.

Disclosure of Your Information

While Hangar will work to provide the highest level of protection for your information, and unless otherwise specified above, we may disclose personally identifiable information about you to third parties in limited circumstances, including: (1) with your consent; or (2) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other judicial or administrative order.

If we are required by law to disclose the information that you have submitted, we will attempt to provide you with notice (unless we are prohibited) that a request for your information has been made in order to give you an opportunity to object to the disclosure. We will attempt to provide this notice by email, if you have given us an email address, or by postal mail if you have entered a postal address. If you do not challenge the disclosure request, we may be legally required to turn over your information.

Changes to Our Policies

Hangar’s Privacy Policy may change from time to time. If so, we will post updates here, as well as in our email newsletter.
