Type of Personal Information Collected and How It is Used
Helen Keller Services for the Blind does not collect personally identifiable information from you unless you provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly, by requesting publications or other information from us, or by making a donation to HKSB. We do not share, sell, or trade names or other personal data that we collect on our website, nor do we maintain any credit card information. Credit card donations through our website are processed exclusively by Groundspring.org, which is committed to providing safe, secure, and private online transactions.

When you make a donation to us through the “Donate Now” button on our website, Groundspring shares your contact information (name, address, and e-mail address) with us. We also gather similar information from you (name, address, and e-mail address) when you request free publications from HKSB. We maintain this information in our database of supporters in order to keep you abreast of our future work and related issues that may be of interest to you. You may also want to be added to our mailing list for our newsletter and other mailings. If you do not want to receive materials from us, please contact us.
Collection of Non-Personal Electronic Information
Like most website administrators, HKSB uses log files that record and collect information about general site traffic, site usage, and length of stay. This type of information is not linked to individual visitors. In addition, we may collect “cookies,” bits of information stored in your browser or hard drive, for the purpose of making our site easier for you to use and allowing your browser to retain settings that you choose about the appearance of our website.
Helenkeller.org provides links to other web sites as a resource for our site visitors. We encourage you to view their privacy policies. Any information you share with these web sites is subject to their policies and practices and is independent of Helenkeller.org.
