Effective Date: October 1, 2015
We collect the following from individual Volunteers:
We use the information we collect about you to help facilitate the volunteering process. Programs need this information to begin your application. Please be aware that, to the extent required to provide our services, we share your information with other volunteers or nonprofit organization partners. If you indicate on our site that you are interested in a particular mentoring opportunity and provide us with your contact information, we will forward your contact information to the organization that is hosting that opportunity so that the organization can contact you regarding your potential involvement.
We collect the following from individual Nonprofit Organizations:
MENTOR strongly encourages nonprofit organizations receiving e-mail addresses from potential volunteers to adopt privacy standards similar to those of MENTOR. You should be aware that each such organization has its own policies regarding collection and use of personal information. MENTOR is not responsible for their use of your personal information. Inappropriate use of personal information received from MENTOR may jeopardize an organization’s listing in the Mentoring Connector, MENTOR’s National Mentoring Database. MENTOR reserves the right to determine, in its discretion, what constitutes inappropriate use of this information. For more about a nonprofit organization’s policy, please contact them directly using the contact information posted for that organization on our site. Information from the nonprofit organizations is used by MENTOR to consult with programs on ways to improve service.
MENTOR will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to anyone. MENTOR will send personally identifiable information about you to other organizations when:
We may share aggregate information about our users with certain third parties. This information shows user activity as a whole rather than on an individual basis and cannot be used to individually identify you. We use this information to help our partners and funders better understand our services and also to report on public interest in mentoring.
MENTOR is concerned about the privacy of young children and does not knowingly collect any personal information from any child under 13. Children under 13 may not register for or use any area of our website that requires personally identifiable information. We suggest that you become involved with your child’s access to the Internet and to our website to ensure that his or her privacy is well protected.
