California Online Privacy Protection Act
CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared. – See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

Users can visit our site anonymously.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.
We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.
Do we let third-parties, including ad networks or plug-ins collect PII from children under 13?
Fair Information Practices
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:
We will notify you via email
       Within 7 business days
We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
CAN SPAM Act
The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

Privacy Policy:

Mental Health Foundation ("Mental Health Foundation") operates mentalhealthfoundation.org and may operate other websites. It is Mental Health Foundation's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Mental Health Foundation collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Mental Health Foundation's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Mental Health Foundation's visitors use its website. From time to time, Mental Health Foundation may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Mental Health Foundation also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on mentalhealthfoundation.org blogs/sites. Mental Health Foundation only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Mental Health Foundation's websites choose to interact with Mental Health Foundation in ways that require Mental Health Foundation to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Mental Health Foundation gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at mentalhealthfoundation.org to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Mental Health Foundation are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Mental Health Foundation collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Mental Health Foundation. Mental Health Foundation does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Mental Health Foundation may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Mental Health Foundation may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Mental Health Foundation does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Mental Health Foundation discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Mental Health Foundation's behalf or to provide services available at Mental Health Foundation's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Mental Health Foundation's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Mental Health Foundation will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Mental Health Foundation discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Mental Health Foundation believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Mental Health Foundation, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Mental Health Foundation website and have supplied your email address, Mental Health Foundation may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Mental Health Foundation and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Mental Health Foundation takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Mental Health Foundation uses cookies to help Mental Health Foundation identify and track visitors, their usage of Mental Health Foundation website, and their website access preferences. Mental Health Foundation visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Mental Health Foundation's websites, with the drawback that certain features of Mental Health Foundation's websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Mental Health Foundation, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Mental Health Foundation goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Mental Health Foundation may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Mental Health Foundation and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.
