Privacy Policies

We do not "share" your information
We do not intentionally disclose, share, sell, or trade information about your individual visits to our Website or any personal information that you may give us such as your name, address, email address or telephone number, to or with any outside companies or organizations without your express permission.

Established relationships
If you register, and/or become a sponsor, associate, donor or establish a business relationship with us, or if you ask us to add you to our systems, we may add your email and address information without using the email verification process, and we may contact you by email or send newsletters unless you ask us not to do so.

This web site uses cookies, a browser technique which allows our server to recognize you and to retrieve your information for you when you visit our web site. All access to our web site is either public (with no cookies required), or restricted in which case your browser must accept cookies so we can confirm you have registered, and safeguard your confidential information. If you choose not to accept cookies, many parts of our web site may not be available for your use.

Confidentiality of information
We take professionally-prudent precautions to ensure that our registrants' information is not compromised, but cannot guarantee that it will never be discovered or released accidentally or by malicious actions of other parties. Consequently, we try to minimize the amount of your personal information which is stored online. Be aware that we may also be subject to federal or state laws requiring the disclosure of information to government agencies. If anonymity is important to you, do not give us confidential or personally-identifiable information. This caution applies both to online (world wide web) pages and to email communications you may have with our staff or volunteers.

Message to Parents

If you are a parent or guardian of a child under age 13, please discuss this Privacy Policy with your child, and general Internet use and safety issues with your child. It is a good practice for your child never to provide their real name, address or telephone number without your prior permission when using the Internet .

Children under age 13 may not participate in any activities or services offered on the Site which require registration, without the prior written consent of a parent or legal guardian. Once Soldiers' Heart has obtained consent from the parent or guardian of a minor, we will only ask the child to provide information that is reasonably necessary for participation in the Site’s activities and services. Any time a child under age 13 registers or provides Personal Information via the Web site, Soldiers' Heart will send their parent or legal guardian an email containing a Consent Form. You may consent to your child providing Personal Information and/or participating in certain activities and services offered on the Site, by completing the email Consent Form, or mailing the completed form to Soldiers' Heart, P.O. Box 8564, Albany, NY 12208. No child under age 13 may submit or post Personal Information on or to the Site prior to receipt by Voices in Wartime of a Consent Form which provides verifiable consent of a parent or legal guardian.

The parent or legal guardian who has consented to a child registering with the Site and/or providing Personal Information to the Site may later (a) view the child’s Personal Information and correct or remove the information, in whole or in part; (b) instruct Soldiers' Heart to discontinue all use of the child’s Personal Information and/or not to communicate further with the child; or (c) revoke or modify the consent, by contacting Soldiers' Heart at and including the child’s name and email address and the parent or guardian’s name and email address.

Children Over Age 12
Children over age 12 may register and participate in activities and services on the Site without the permission of a parent or legal guardian. Soldiers' Heart will use reasonable efforts to respond to requests by parents of children over age 12 regarding their child’s use of the Site.
