Sometimes The Stanley Foundation collects information in our customer relationship management (CRM) software about web pages you visit on our website if you have filled out a web form with your personal information. The information gathered is never shared with any other company or organization unless we first obtain your consent for such sharing. It is used exclusively by The Stanley Foundation.

For Data Subjects residing in the European Union, the people and organizations receiving your personal information from us in accordance with your consent may be processing it outside of your region. The legal basis under GDPR for this transfer is Article 49, Section 1(a) “Consent of the Data Subject.”
We take all reasonable precautions designed to safeguard personal information that is collected or used by us from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, modification, or disclosure. To ensure that your personal information is secure, we employ several means, including:

Please note that if you withdraw your consent, this will not affect the lawfulness of our use and processing of your information on the basis of your consent before the point in time when you withdraw your consent.
In accordance with the GDPR (77), you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or of an alleged infringement of the General Data Protection Regulation.

We will handle all requests as quickly as possible (and within any timelines imposed by applicable laws and regulations) and provide that information to you. Some requests may take longer depending on the nature of the request.
We appreciate the importance of taking additional measures to protect children’s privacy. We will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under age 16 without requesting parental consent.
In some sections of our site, we may ask for personal information, such as your name, mailing address, and e-mail address. If you are under 16, you must have a parent’s consent to provide this information. Information gathered in any section will not be shared outside The Stanley Foundation.
Our e-mail outreach is permission based. If you received a mailing from us, our records indicate that (a) you have expressly shared this address for the purpose of receiving information in the future (“opt-in”) or (b) you have confirmed your participation in an event or otherwise have an existing relationship with us.
We may use the e-mail address you have provided to send promotional e-mails about new publication releases or events we think you may find interesting.
If you believe you have received unwanted, unsolicited e-mail sent via our system or purporting to be sent via our system, please forward a copy of that e-mail with your comments to [email protected] for review.
Each e-mail we send contains an easy way for you to cease receiving e-mail from us. If you wish to do this, simply click on the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any e-mail, or contact [email protected].
The Stanley Foundation may occasionally conduct user and post-event surveys to better target our content to our audience. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
The Stanley Foundation’s Web server, like most servers, collects information about visitors and stores them in log files. This information is gathered and stored each time the site is accessed.
Most Internet service providers (ISPs) use a dynamic form of assigning IP addresses. This means a visitor often has a different IP address each time he or she visits The Stanley Foundation site. Many other ISPs (such as AOL) use proxy servers that further protect the anonymity of visitors.
Sometimes, The Stanley Foundation’s sites use a “cookie” to more accurately track your visit. This is a small file stored on your computer that uniquely identifies your machine. No personal information is stored in a cookie. If you do not wish to accept a cookie from The Stanley Foundation’s servers, you can adjust the settings in your browser accordingly. Refusing to accept a cookie does not affect how the site works.
When we send you e-mails, we may include a Web beacon to allow us to determine the number of people who open our e-mails. When you click on a link in an e-mail, we may record this individual response to allow us to customize our offerings to you. Web beacons collect only limited information, such as a cookie identifier, time and date of a page being viewed, and a description of the page on which the Web beacon resides (the URL). Web beacons can be refused when delivered via e-mail. If you do not wish to receive Web beacons via e-mail, you will need to disable HTML images or refuse HTML (select “Text only”) e-mails via your e-mail software.
We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but do not have permission to use it for other purposes.
