This information is used for statistical tracking purposes only, to help us improve our website and provide visitors with a positive browsing experience. This information is only compiled in aggregate, so that we know how many people are visiting our site each day, how long people spend viewing our site, which pages are visited most, etc.

Personal Information
Some areas of our website allow you the option to enter personal information. These may include requests for materials or information; subscriptions to email communication services; surveys or feedback forms; email links to our staff; or otherwise. If you voluntarily choose to provide personal information, it may be viewed by various people at Philanthropy DMV in the process of responding to your on-line request.

If you choose to provide us with personal information, we will never sell, rent or provide this information to others without your consent except as we might be required to do so by law.

We make extensive use of technologies and techniques to help protect the integrity of the personal information you provide to us via the Internet. Still, you should be aware that electronic communications may not always be secure, in spite of all precautions. If you are concerned about providing sensitive information, you may wish to do so via phone, regular mail or during a personal consultation, rather than electronically.
