We do not “share” your information
The Wat Buddhanusorn does not intentionally disclose, share, sell, or trade information about your individual visits to our Website or any personal information that you may give us such as your name, address, email address or telephone number, to or with any outside companies or organizations without your express permission.
We verify your email address
We will verify that you have given us a functioning email address by sending a confirmation message to you at that address. You must respond to that message before your profile can be used and before we will send any newsletters to you. You may choose not to subscribe to our newsletters (called “opting-out”), but you may not opt-out of administrative communications dealing with your account information – these will be sent to all email addresses on file.
If you register, and/or become a sponsor, associate, donor or establish a business relationship with us, or if you ask us to add you to our systems, we may add your email and address information without using the email verification process, and we may contact you by email or send newsletters unless you ask us not to do so.
Because we request personally-identifiable information, such as (but not limited to) your email address, and to conform to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) in the United States, we require that all registrants be at least 13 years old.
Confidentiality of information
We take professionally-prudent precautions to ensure that our registrants’ information is not compromised, but cannot guarantee that it will never be discovered or released accidentally or by malicious actions of other parties. Consequently, we try to minimize the amount of your personal information which is stored online. Be aware that as a California (United States) not-for-profit (501(c)3) corporation we may also be subject to federal or state laws requiring the disclosure of information to government agencies. If anonymity is important to you, do not give us confidential or personally-identifiable information. This caution applies both to online (world wide web) pages and to email communications you may have with Wat Buddhanusorn staff or volunteers.
