• Childshare.org servers automatically record information when you visit our website or use some of our services, including your IP address, country, browser type, visit duration, operating systems, and search keywords and keyphrases.
Information You Provide: We will not sell or trade your personal information to any other entity in existence unless we receive written permission from you, or lacking that, provide you with an easy and user-friendly way to opt out of having your information sold or traded. We use the information that you present for such purposes as communicating with you, responding to your requests, and improving our site and services. We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. You may choose not to offer certain information, but then you might not be able to benefit from our many features. When you donate or register at childshare.org, we collect and store the information you provide. This allows you to auto-populate future forms with the information you provide.

Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use “cookies,” and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses childshare.org. For each end-user to our Web site, our Web server may automatically recognize available IP addresses. We collect IP addresses of end users for internal tracking purposes only. We collect the IP address of end users to our Web pages, aggregate information on what pages end users access or visit, and information volunteered by the end user, such as e-mail addresses through our online forms.

Cookies: When you visit childshare.org, like many Web sites, we send one or more cookies – a small file containing a string of characters – to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. Cookies allow you to take full advantage of some of childshare.org’s features, and we recommend that you leave them turned on. We use cookies to record past activity in order to provide better service when you return to our site. However, if you feel it is necessary, the Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether.

Affiliated sites: We offer some of our services in connection with other Web sites and their vendors.

Links: childshare.org may present links in a format that allows us to track if these links have been followed. We use this information to customize content and improve the quality of our technology.
In addition to the above stated purposes of shared personal information, your personal information may be collected for the following purposes:
