What Information We Collect
EMC collects information directly submitted to us through the website as well as through other digital and non-digital interfaces and platforms, such as e-mail and social media. The data we collect generally falls into 3 categories:
- Personal information: including name, address, email address, and other voluntarily submitted information. (For example, information submitted as part of a job application or a request to collaborate with EMC.)
- Platform data: including IP address, browsing actions, and traffic patterns, which are automatically collected through cookies and other tracking technologies. Our website and other digital platforms also include third-party features and widgets (e.g., social sharing) that may collect data.
- Transactional data: including credit card information from merchandise purchases and secure donations. If a donation is made in honor or in memory of someone and you request that an acknowledgement be sent to another individual, we will use the name and address of that individual for acknowledgement purposes only.
How We Use the Information
We collect information to engage with our community and provide visitors with information concerning our grantee programs, projects, and other activities. We collect financial information to accept donations, provide appropriate receipts, and facilitate purchases. We also collect information for internal purposes (to better understand our supporter network) and for analytical purposes.
From time to time we analyze our website logs in order to improve the experience of visiting our site. We use an external service to provide real-time reporting to us and our authorized agents of browser accesses to our site.
