AutismOne 2019 Conference
PRIVACY POLICY

The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to set forth the practices of AutismOne to respect the privacy of all visitors to this site.
By using this website, you agree to the terms of AutismOne. If you do not agree with all the terms, please do not use our website. AutismOne reserves the right to change, add, delete, or alter this Privacy Policy at any time. Your continued use of this website following the posting of any changes to the Privacy Policy will mean that you accept those changes.

The information that we may gather from or about you can fall into two categories; Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) and Aggregate Information.

Personally Identifiable Information
We may request and collect personally identifiable information that you voluntarily choose to disclose to us. Examples of personally identifiable information include your name, physical address, e-mail address, telephone number, or any other information that can be used to uniquely identify you.

AutismOne may collect and use Personally Identifiable Information in one or more of the following ways:

Aggregate Information
We may request additional information about you that may or may not be traced specifically back to you. Examples of aggregate information include how many times our site is visited, geographic location, age, or gender.

AutismOne may collect and use Aggregate Information in one or more of the following ways:

Retention of Data
AutismOne will retain your Personal Data only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. We will retain and use your Personal Data to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations (for example, if we are required to retain your data to comply with applicable laws), resolve disputes, and enforce our legal agreements and policies.

AutismOne will also retain PII data for internal analysis purposes. Aggregate data is generally retained for a shorter period of time except when this data is used to strengthen the security or to improve the functionality of our Service, or we are legally obligated to retain this data for longer time periods.

Security
We take precautions to protect your information. Personal information is stored in a secured manner and always sent via a secure internet channel. When you enter sensitive information, AutismOne uses secure socket layer technology (SSL) to encrypt the transmission of that information. However, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and AutismOne cannot guarantee that the information submitted to, maintained on, or transmitted from its systems will be completely secure. AutismOne is not responsible for the circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the site by any users or third parties.

IP Addresses
AutismOne maintains internal logs for Internal Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer each time you access the Internet. Your IP address does not contain PII. AutismOne collects IP addresses in order to conduct system administration, report aggregate information, conduct site analysis, and to detect improper use of the site.

Third Party Disclosure
We do not disclose information about you to nonaffiliated third parties, except as permitted by law. For example, we are permitted by law to share information about you to agents, contractors, or affiliates of ours, who help us operate the website, conduct our business, or help us complete a service you requested. All such partners are bound to keep your information confidential. In certain circumstances, we may share information about you if we believe in good faith, that state or federal law requires us to do so, such as to comply with an inquiry from law enforcement officials, when ordered by a court, or by other compulsory legal process. We may also share your information to investigate or prevent suspected illegal activities such as fraud.

Links to other Websites
Our website may contain links to non-websites. Links to other websites are provided to you for information and convenience only and does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation by AutismOne. The external sites are not under the control of AutismOne and we cannot guarantee the privacy or safety of information you provide to those sites. To ensure protection of your privacy, we encourage you to review the privacy policies of any websites you visit.

Cookies
We use “cookies” to collect information on how our website is used. Cookies are pieces of information that are transferred to your browser or local device for record keeping purposes. These cookies are not required for site functionality.  Additionally, third-party widgets such as YouTube or Facebook may install cookies depending on their configuration.  You are not required to accept any cookies to use this site.

Google Analytics
We use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about use of this site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve this site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this site by disabling cookies on your browser.

Payments
We provide paid products and/or services on our website. We use third-party services for payment processing (e.g. payment processors).

We will not store or collect your payment card details. That information is provided directly to our third-party payment processors whose use of your personal information is governed by their Privacy Policy. These payment processors adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of payment information.

The payment processors we work with are PayPal and TicketSpice. Their Privacy Policies can be viewed at https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full and  https://www.webconnex.com/privacy-policy/

Perfect Audience
AutismOne is a company that likes to promote their newest products in many different ways. As a charity organization we do not throw ads in your face. If someone, within the United Sates only, is interested in our products AutismOne ads can be displayed to them in different ways. We use Perfect Audience for “interest-based advertising”, so-called re marketing. Browser cookies are stored on the consumers computer which enables them to receive special ads from AutismOne when visiting other websites, such as YouTube or Facebook. They may also receive emails from AutismOne. We use Perfect Audience. Perfect Audience provides an easy way to allow users to opt-out on their Opt Out page. Their privacy policy is here https://www.perfectaudience.com/privacy/.

E-mails
AutismOne uses e-mail forms to allow our customers to ask questions about our services or programs. While we make every attempt to protect the personal information that you share with us, it is important to note that an e-mail message is unsecured. Should you choose to send your information via e-mail, you do so at your own risk. We recommend that if your communication is extremely sensitive, you may want to send it by postal mail.

If you choose to correspond to us via e-mail, we reserve the right to retain the content of your email messages as well as your e-mail address or other PII, and our responses.

Personal Information Provided as Part of User Content
If you include PII as part of any content that you provide to AutismOne via public postings to the site, including any bulletin boards, forum posts, etc., such information may be made available to any parties using the site. AutismOne does not edit or otherwise remove such information from content uploaded to any bulletin boards, forum posts, etc. before it is posted on the site. If you do not wish to have your personally identifiable information made available in this manner, you must remove any such information from the content before posting. Your contact information (which may include, without limitation, a username and email address) may be included with any content that you post via the site. AutismOne is not liable for any damages caused or incurred due to personally identifiable information made available in the foregoing manner.

Forums
We may provide online forums for users who visit our site. However, any postings will not be protected or confidential.

Governing Law
This policy and use of AutismOne’s site or services shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California. If any provision of this agreement shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from the other provisions and shall not affect the validity of the other provisions.

WEBSITE ACCESSIBILITY
We are working to improve the accessibility of content on our website. If you have difficulty reading or understanding the content, please contact us and we will assist you. At this time, you may not be able to fill out online forms without assistance. We have paper forms which we can mail to you.

Below, you’ll find a few recommendations to help make your browsing experience more accessible:
If you have trouble seeing web pages, the US Social Security Administration offers these tips for optimizing your computer and browser to improve your online experience.

If you are looking for mouse and keyboard alternatives, speech recognition software may help you navigate web pages and online services. This software allows the user to move focus around a web page or application screen through voice controls.

If you are deaf or hard of hearing, there are several accessibility features available to you.
Volume Controls
Your computer, tablet, or mobile device has volume control features. Each video and audio service has its own additional volume controls. Try adjusting both your device’s volume controls and your media players’ volume controls to optimize your listening experience.

Closed Captioning
Closed captioning provides a transcript for the audio track of a video presentation that is synchronized with the video and audio tracks. Captions are generally visually displayed over the video, which benefits people who are deaf and hard of hearing, and anyone who cannot hear the audio due to noisy environments. We do not currently have video content on our website. Learn how to turn captioning on and off in YouTube.
