BRAC uses its best efforts to respect the privacy of its online visitors. At our site, we do not collect personally identifiable information from individuals unless they provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly. This means we do not require you to register or provide information to us in order to view our site. BRAC only gathers personally identifiable data, such as names, addresses, zip/postal codes, e-mail addresses, etc., when voluntarily submitted by a visitor. For example, personally identifiable information may be collected in order for a visitor to make a donation online. This information is used solely by BRAC or other entities who are involved in the operation of this site for internal purposes. BRAC’s lists are never sold to third parties. We will only share personally identifiable information with third parties when the person submitting the information authorizes us to share it or we are required to by law. As with most other Internet sites, our Web server automatically recognizes the domain name of each visitor to the site, but not the e-mail address (where possible). This IP address tells us which domain you visited from (e.g. aol.com). We use the information we record to help diagnose problems with our server and to improve the content of our Web page. The information is not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes.
If you supply us with your postal address or e-mail address online you may receive periodic mailings from us with information on our programs and services.
If you do not want to receive postal mail or e-mail from us in the future, please let us know by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or writing to us at the above address telling us that you do not want to receive postal mail or e-mail from us. Some mailings are prepared well in advance, so please allow up to three months for your request to be properly reflected on our mailing lists.
Is Credit Card Information Secure?
We care about the safety and security of your transaction. We use high grade encryption and the https security protocol to communicate with your browser software. This method is the industry standard security protocol, which makes it extremely difficult for anyone else to intercept the credit card information you send to us.
How Do We Use “Cookies”?
This site contains links to other sites. Unless we expressly state otherwise, BRAC makes no representations whatsoever concerning the content of those sites. The fact that BRAC has provided a link to a site is not an endorsement, authorization, sponsorship, or affiliation with respect to such site, its owners, or its providers. There are risks associated with using any information, software, or products found on the Internet, and BRAC cautions you to make sure that you understand these risks before retrieving, using, relying upon, or purchasing anything via the Internet.
Note to Parents and Children
BRAC welcomes children to learn more about our organization and about the issues presented on the BRAC sites, and we are particularly respectful of the privacy of our young users. We encourage parents to monitor their children’s use of the Internet and to help us protect their privacy by instructing them never to provide personal information on this site or any other without permission. We will never attempt to extract unnecessary information from our users, regardless of age. Consistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with such information without consent, we will use our best efforts to remove such information from our files. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that a child under 13 has provided such information to us, he or she should contact us at email@example.com.

If you have donated to us and would like to correct or update your personal data or to adjust your mail preferences, you can do so by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, calling us at 212-808-5615, or by sending us the update via postal mail sent to,
