Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our Site and its components, similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show. Defend Haiti only uses this data in aggregate form. This as a statistical measure and would identify a user personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often people access parts of the Site so that we can make the Site appealing to as many people as possible, and improve the content. This information will not be shared with advertisers and other third parties.
Many companies offer programs that help you to visit web sites anonymously. While Defend Haiti will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these programs are available.
B. IP Addresses - An IP address is a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. All computer identification on the Internet is conducted with IP addresses, which allow computers and servers to recognize and communicate with each other. Through the Site, we collect IP addresses in order to conduct system administration, report aggregate information to sponsors and advertisers, and to conduct Site analysis. If someone requests pages from the Site, our servers enter the visitor's IP address into a log. To maintain visitor anonymity, we do not associate IP addresses with records containing Personal Data. However, we will use IP addresses to identify any user who refuses to comply with our in-house rules or terms of service, and to identify users who threaten our service, Site, customers, advertisers or others.

Linking Your Web Site To Our Pages
We encourage you to link to our pages. However, we ask that you abide by the following guidelines when doing so:
You may not infer or imply that the Defend Haiti sponsors or in any way approves of your site or any other site.
You may not frame, display, or alter any material from our web sites, or our web pages directly, in any way that obscures our identification, banners or site navigation. Framing does not allow users to bookmark the framed page. Also, some sites use frames to present content belonging to another site as if it was their own. We feel this is confusing to users and jeopardizes the integrity of our content. The presentation of the material linked to must make it readily apparent that the content is the property of Defend Haiti or its affiliates.
You may not present Defend Haiti web site content as that of the site owner, otherwise misrepresent the content of the Defend Haiti web pages or misinform users about the origin or ownership of the content of Defend Haiti Web site.

We employ strict security measures to safeguard online transactions, including usernames and passwords. Personal Data is stored in a secured database and always sent via an encrypted Internet channel. However, no Internet or e-mail transmission is ever fully secure or error free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this Site may not be secure. Therefore, you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail.
