SICCA's policy is simple: we collect no personal information about you when you visit our site unless you choose to provide that information to us.

INFORMATION SUBMITTED BY USERS
SICCA (also referred to as "we," "us" or "our") will not share with any outside organization personal information you provide to us during your visit to this site. Any "personal information" received from this website is used by the SICCA only for processing online registrations or orders. "Personal Information" includes, for example, an individual's name, home address, e-mail address, telephone number, credit card information, or any other information that can be used to identify or contact an individual, whether online or offline. This information is never sold, rented, or shared with any external or third party.

Submitting personal information is voluntary. When you voluntarily submit information, it constitutes your consent to the use of the information for the purpose(s) stated at the time of collection.

Our Services Providers (as defined below) may have access to your personally information as necessary to provide their services. They are required to maintain the privacy of all such information in their possession or control and can only use the information for the purpose that we have contracted them, for example processing donations or fulfilling orders. We do not sell or exchange email addresses with third parties for their own purposes. We respect your privacy and appreciate your support. If you ever want to remove yourself from our email list, all you need to do is send an email to Olinda_Anderson@baruch.cuny.edu with REMOVE as the subject.

ADDITIONAL USES AND DISCLOSURES OF INFORMATION
We may use third parties to help operate our Sites and deliver our services (our "Services Providers'), and we may share the information we collect with them, to use on our behalf, in order to help us operate our Sites and deliver our services.

We may disclose information to protect our rights or property or other users of the Sites.

In the event that SICCA, or substantially all of its assets, is acquired by one or more third parties as a result of an acquisition, merger, sale, reorganization, consolidation or liquidation, information we collect on our Sites may be one of the transferred assets. We may disclose aggregate statistics regarding user behavior as a measure of interest n , and use of, our Sites and e-mails to third parties in the form of aggregate data, such as overall patterns or demographic reports that do not describe or identify and individual user.

INFORMATION COLLECTED AUTOMATICALLY
We also collect information by various technical means, without your submitting any information, in order to help us understand the usage of the Sites (such as the number of visitors to the Sites and the most popular pages) and to enhance the user experience (such as whether you have a high or low bandwidth connection to the Internet). The information collected in this way generally is not personally identifiable information.

We also collect data automatically through "cookies," "web beacons," and "web logs" which are commonly used on the Internet.

A "cookie" is a piece of information that a website transfers to a user's computer for record-keeping purposes. As a user moves from page to page at our Sites, a cookie is used to tell us that it is the same user. We also may use a cookie to keep track of your selections. You may set your Internet browser to accept or not accept cookies and you may delete any cookies that you have received. However, should you decide to disable any cookies we place on your computer, you may not be able to use certain services or features on the Sites.

A "web beacon" is a one-pixel image (which may be visible or transparent), which may be embedded on a web page or e-mail message, and which may also provide us with information about usage of that page or e-mail message.

We also maintain web logs that record basic information about visitors to our Sites such as the Internet Protocol (IP) address for their computers and the type of browser and operating system they use. An IP address is a number designated for your computer by your internet service provider to provide access to the Internet. We may use your IP address to gather aggregate information on the use of the Sites, but we will only be able to identify you individually if we link the IP address to you as a particular user.

WIRELESS E-MAIL ADDRESSES
If the e-mail address you provide to us is a wireless e-mail address, you agree to receive messages at such address from SICCA (unless and until you have elected not to receive such messages). You understand that your wireless carrier's standard rates apply to these messages and that you may change your mind at any time and elect not to receive such messages. You represent that you are the owner or authorized user of the wireless device on which messages will be received, and that you are authorized to approve the applicable charges.

LINKS FROM THE SITES TO THIRD PARTY SITES
When you are on our Sites, you may have the opportunity to visit, or link to, other third party sites. When you link to such third party sites, you become subject to their terms of use and privacy policies rather than ours. You should review these third party sites' privacy policies regarding any personally information that they may collect about you at their sites. SICCA does not accept any responsibility or liability for the privacy practices of third party sites and your use of such sites is at your own risk.

CHANGES TO PRIVACY POLICY
Whenever this Privacy Policy for our Sites changes, we will post the changes to the Sites, and such changes will be effective immediately upon posting. If you do not agree to the changes, please do not continue to use the Sites. Under certain circumstances, we may also elect to notify you of changes or updates to our Privacy Policy by additional means, such as posting a notice on the front page of our Sites or sending you an e-mail if we have your e-mail address.
