Privacy Policy

At Bridgewell, we respect and protect the privacy of our supporters and those who use our web site. The following privacy statement provides details about how your personal information is collected and used. This privacy statement applies to all of Bridgewell’s web pages, correspondence and electronic communication.

Internet Privacy Policy
Bridgewell is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share or rent this information to others in ways other than those outlined in this statement. Bridgewell collects information from our users at several different points on our web site. Personal information provided by users will be used by Bridgewell to improve the site and provide a more personalized experience for the user, but information which identifies a specific individual will not be disclosed to others without the user’s permission unless necessary to provide services which the user has requested.

Surveys
Occasionally, Bridgewell requests information from users via e-mail surveys. User participation in surveys is voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site, publications or special events.

Web Privacy
Bridgewell respects and acknowledges that your privacy is important and you have the right to control how your personal information is used. We do not collect any personal information on visitors to this website. We do not use “cookies” or other technology to track visits, aside from logging the following for statistical purposes:
• the number of page hits
• the pages accessed or downloaded by session
• the type of browser being used

Email Service
If you wish to receive regular email updates from Bridgewell, you may sign up for our email service. When you sign up for our email service, the personal details you provide to Bridgewell are for the sole purpose of sending you information and updates or to request support through donations. At no time will Bridgewell disclose, sell or otherwise pass on this privileged information to any other organization. The personal details you provide will only be used for the purposes for which it was intended. Our email database is protected by a secure user ID and password to protect it from misuse, unauthorized access, modification or disclosure.

Contact Information
Bridgewell may also purchase contact lists for the purposes of fundraising. We will only purchase lists from organizations that certify (1) that they comply with all applicable state and federal Privacy Legislation, and (2) that the addresses are from persons who have given permission for their email addresses to be sold, and (3) that the persons have given permission for organizations who purchase their name from a list to send them email.

When we receive an internet donation or inquiry, the donor’s email address is added to our email database unless the donor specifies that they not be contacted regarding future fundraising or promotional activities. You can remove your name from our email list at any time, as we do not wish to be guilty of spamming or offending our supporters.

We will never share, sell, or rent your personal information with third parties for their promotional use. Occasionally, we enter into contracts with third parties so that they can assist us in servicing you (for example, printing or electronic newsletters). The contracts prohibit them from using any of your personal information for their own purposes and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information we provide to them.

Choice/Opt-out
Bridgewell provides users the opportunity to opt-in, opt-out or change preferences via a link in the footer of most email messages. These options are made available when you sign-up for our email lists and in email messages delivered from our company. Alternatively, you may email us at development@bridgewell.org to be removed from the email distribution list. As for postal publications, please contact Bridgewell at 781.593.1088 to be removed. When you contact us with an opt-out request, all reasonable efforts will be taken to ensure that you will not receive any of the selected communications from us in the future.

Links
Some of our sites provide links to third-party websites, such as those of our non-profit partners and supporters. Because Bridgewell does not control the information policies or practices of these third parties, you should review their privacy policies to learn more about how they collect and use personally identifiable information.

Policy Updates
Bridgewell reserves the right to update this Privacy Policy at any time.
