The Foundation for Wallingford-Swarthmore Schools respects your privacy. In summary,
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.

- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
Information We Collect
Our web site collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, operating system, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use our web site. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its web site.
Our web site also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our web site. Our web site only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the web site.
If a user wishes to subscribe to the Foundation’s e-mail list, we ask for contact information such as name and email address. Members of a mailing list may receive periodic newsletters and announcements. Out of respect for our users’ privacy we provide a way to unsubscribe from the list. Visit the Unsubscribe page to remove your email from the list.
We may conduct occasional online surveys to learn about our community’s opinions and views. We do not collect personally identifying information in these surveys.
Comments and other content submitted to anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
Web Site Registration
For some users to use some features of this web site, they must first complete a registration form. During registration, users are required to give their name and email address. This information enables users to retrieve lost passwords.
We may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to our web site and may analyze and display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, we will not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
We disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to Foundation board members and operators of the web site that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on the Foundation’s behalf or to provide services available at our web site, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.
We will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than as described above, we shall disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of the Foundation, third parties or the public at large. If you have signed up for our announcement list and have supplied your name and email address, we may occasionally send you an email to tell you about news, events and volunteering opportunities, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with the Foundation. If you send us a request (for example via a email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. We shall take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
