Privacy Policy

Adopted December 7, 2006

Thank you for visiting the Mental Health Association of Frederick County’s site.  We want you to browse or ask for information without worrying about how we will use your personal information later.  Please be assured that we respect the privacy of all visitors to this site.  Our Privacy Policy is designed to assist you in understanding how we collect and use any personal information you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our site and our products and services.

What Information Do We Collect?

We do not collect personal information automatically on people who browse our web pages.  Our web server does not automatically recognize or record information regarding the email address of the visitor.  The referring domain and originating IP address are recorded for internal website management only.  Some of our services do require personal information from the user.  This information is supplied by the user, with the user's consent and awareness, for purposes that are clearly described to the user at the time the information is supplied.

How is Information Used?

In general, if you supply us with your postal address on-line you will receive the information for which you provided us your address.  If you supply us with your email address you will receive those alerts and newsletters that you have requested.  If you supply us with any other information it will be used for the purposes stated at the time you supply the information.
From time to time, there are issues and events that have large implications for the populations that we serve.  At such times, the Mental Health Association of Frederick County may send you relevant information via mail or email.  All email communications from us will contain instructions for unsubscribing from future communications.  We may also use user information internally for our own program management and evaluation.
We do not share any personal information gathered on the website with other organizations for commercial purposes.  We do not partner with or have special relationships with any ad server companies.

Website Security

The Mental Health Association of Frederick County has reasonable website security measures in place to protect the information under our control from loss, misuse, and alteration.  No security measures are perfect, and the Mental Health Association of Frederick County cannot unconditionally guarantee that site information will never be misused.

Note for Parents: This site does not contain materials that are pornographic, violent, or bigoted.  We strive to insure that the sites we link to meet the same standards.  However, the sites we link to will have links to other sites and so on.  We cannot control the content of websites that are not our own and we cannot guarantee their content will be suitable for children.  Parents should supervise their children's Internet use in general and monitor for sites with mature topics.
