We are committed to protecting your privacy. To make your experience at our website more convenient, we gather information from you. We maintain the privacy of your information using security technologies and adhere to policies that prevent unauthorized use of your personal information.
What personal information do we collect, and how is it used?
We collect information on which portions of our website visitors access or visit. We also collect information volunteered by visitors, such as survey information and/or website registrations. Any personal information we collect is used for internal review and is either discarded or used by us to contact consumers for purposes such as those described below. We keep confidential all personal information entered during registration.
When we do collect personally identifiable information, it is always voluntarily submitted by you (e.g., when you fill out the registration page or send us feedback). The information collected is used to send our users email reminders and other information we think will be of interest. If, for any reason, you would like to be removed from our email list, you can unsubscribe by simply clicking the unsubscribe link within the body of the email.
We may also monitor and track information such as member usage patterns of our website. We compile this information into a statistical aggregate which we use, together with your personal information, for internal business and administrative purposes including improving our website, our operations and our client service.
Protecting your privacy
As part of our commitment to ensuring the privacy of our users, we do not sell or exchange names or any other personally identifiable information about our online network members with, for example, mass marketers. We keep confidential any personal information entered during registration, though we may share aggregate information about website usage and traffic patterns, stripped of any personally identifiable information, to third parties to comply with various reporting obligations and for business or marketing purposes. We may also share limited personally identifiable information with third parties on a confidential basis to enable a third party to perform certain tasks, such as maintain an email list or send email alerts and/or newsletters, on our behalf.
We may transfer a Long-term Cookie only in circumstances in which you are notified prior to the cookie being stored, for example, when you select a “remember” option on the Don’t Change Yourself site.
If you select one of these options, a Long-term Cookie will be stored on your computer’s hard drive solely for the purpose of automatically filling in the information you have asked to be remembered.
These “remember” options are offered only for your convenience and are completely voluntary. If you do not select a “remember” option, we will not transfer a Long-Term Cookie to your computer’s hard drive.
We may use Session Cookies whenever you visit the Don’t Change Yourself site for our website traffic analytics application and the Site’s interactive applications, such as in our online advocacy. Session Cookies last only as long as your session on the site. They expire when the session ends and are not written onto your computer’s hard drive.
We also may use Short-term Cookies to facilitate some of our website analysis and functionality, such as maps and videos. These Short-term Cookies are set to expire within one hour of their being placed on your hard drive.

While we make efforts to choose our links carefully, we cannot take any responsibility for the content of linked websites, or for the privacy policies of websites we link to.
