Operation Change respects your privacy and we seek to protect the information you provide online.
When you register or log into your online Operation Change account through our website, you may be required to share certain personal information with us, for example, your name and address, or other information that can be used to identify you. When you return to your Operation Change accounts, this personal information may be used to "authenticate" or confirm your identity in order to secure and properly restrict access to your online accounts.
We may collect information through our website using tiny text files called "cookies." Cookies track the pages you visit and they make web pages load faster and improve your online experience.

We respect web browsers’ "do not track" signals and we do not track your navigation of our website if this preference is indicated.
On some pages of the Operation Change website we may also use action tags. We may use these tags to monitor and assess the effectiveness of promotions and marketing. For example, if a web page on the Operation Change website contains a link offering more information on a nonprofit organization for users who register online, we may include a tag on that page and the corresponding page to track how many users requested more information about that nonprofit organization. These tags work in combination with cookies, but do not collect or contain any personally identifiable information.
We gather information on visitor activity on the website. This information includes but is not limited to page visits, views, session length, and other activity on the website.

We also maintain physically secured locations for server operations, use technological safeguards like firewalls and password protection, and limit access to sensitive information to those individuals with a legitimate business need to access it.
You can help us maintain the security of our website by using passwords that cannot be easily guessed and by safeguarding them to avoid unwanted disclosure.
