Privacy Policy

RiverLink is dedicated to protecting your privacy. No personal information will be collected about you unless you choose to provide it and any personal information which you provide us will be safeguarded and not shared with others unless you specifically request that we do so.

If while on this website [ ] you choose only to browse or download documents, we will not and can not collect any personally identifiable information. However, web servers automatically recognize the domain and IP address used by each visitor to our site and our stats package may record which pages on our website that you visit (but will not be able to track you once you leave our website).

Cookies and eCommerce
We, like most websites that have eCommerce functionality, use ‘cookies’ to hold such personal information as is required to maintain correct and accurate data in your shopping cart as you move through the store. Cookies store bits of information that allow our server to recognize your computer. We safeguard this information and do not share it with others for any reason. If you choose to purchase goods through this website, you will be asked to provide personal and financial information so that we may process your order. Though we have taken extra care to establish a safe and secure environment, the use of such eCommerce functionality is entirely voluntary and at your own discretion and risk.

Forms, Email, Surveys, Interactivity, and Links

The RiverLink website does have forms and email links in places throughout the site so that you may, if you choose, send comments and ideas, ask for more information, and/or report problems you may experience on our site. With your permission, we may wish to post your comments on our site (on our FAQ page, for instance). We will not identify you personally, though we may use first name or initials, and certainly will not disclose your email address or phone number (should you provide these) without your express written permission. The use of such forms and email links is entirely voluntary and at your own discretion and risk.

We welcome your email messages and suggestions of ways in which we can improve the site. We will use any personal information you send us only to respond to your message. Please note that any suggestions or ideas you submit to us will become the property of RiverLink and can be used by us for any purpose.

If you choose to participate in one of our online surveys, we will ask you for certain general demographic and/or personal information. We do not share this information with others. Participation in such surveys is entirely voluntary and at your own discretion and risk.

The RiverLink web site may contain interactive programs in which you can participate. Any information that you provide will be stored in our system and not shared with third parties. Participation in such surveys is entirely voluntary and at your own discretion and risk.

Our site contains links to other sites. Please remember that our privacy policy does not apply to other sites and that we cannot be held responsible for their privacy policies, if any.

Privacy of Children

At RiverLink, we are concerned with protecting the privacy of children who visit our site. We support and endeavor to be in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, even though this act does not apply to non-profit organizations.

We collect personal information from children only to be able to furnish information regarding participation in age-appropriate programs.
We do not ask children for other personal information, and we never share the information we collect with anyone outside of RiverLink.
If you or your child is under age 13, the consent of a parent or guardian is required for use of the web site.
