THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Personal Information You Provide And How It Is Used: You may freely visit our Website anonymously and without being required to provide us with any personal information. However, certain services, requests and features do require that you provide us with some personally identifying information (including, but not limited to, name, address, email) as more particularly described below; availing yourself of any of these services, requests and features is voluntary. Personal information is data that can be used to identify or contact you. Except in the case in which we are collecting information related to “third-party honorees,” which may include the type of cancer they were inflicted with, we do not knowingly collect sensitive personal information, such as information about medical or health conditions. Except in regard to such third-party honorees, please do not send confidential information to us directly through this Website, or by email to any of the contact email addresses listed on this Website.

Your information may be collected by SU2C or by a third party, such as a co-sponsor or a vendor involved in, or providing services in connection with, a Special Promotion.
Non-Personal Information We Collect by Automated Means And How We Use It: We also collect certain non-personal information (data in a form that does not support direct association with any specific person or individual) by automated means when you visit the Website. Much of this information is collected through the use of third-party tracking services, which includes Google Analytics and Crazy Egg, as examples. The information collected may include usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of users to the Website, pages visited, web browsing histories, online purchases and searches, social networking activities and similar data. If gathered, this data is used in the aggregate, and not in a manner that is intended to identify you personally. This type of aggregate information may be shared with third parties at any time. We also use “ad pixels” and/or “trackers” that follow a user from an ad placement to specific website use/activities. We also use “UTM” or similar tracking URLs to track visits across sites and to some of our partner sites. While we do not “serve” ads and advertisements on our Website, we do use a Google site search tool that will serve ad based upon your searches. In addition to these aforementioned third-party tracking services, we also collect non-personal information through various other means, including “cookies,” “web beacons” and IP addresses, as further explained below.
Cookies: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. A cookie is a piece of information that a web server may place on your computer when you visit a website. Cookies are used for a variety of reasons, including to improve a user’s website experience. Many cookies last only through a single website session, or visit. Others may have an expiration date, or may remain on your computer until you delete them. There are a variety of types of cookies. SU2C uses “performance cookies” in order to enhance the user experience and for other website related purposes. These cookies collect information about how our Website is used, including which pages are most viewed, how long someone stays on a webpage, and whether any error messages were received. “Functionality cookies” may also be utilized; these cookies allow the Website to remember information you have provided in order to provide a more customized experience. Neither session cookies nor functionality cookies are linked to personally identifiable information. We may also use “required cookies,” which provides us the ability to store a user name or related login credentials so that you do not have to provide this information every time you return to our Website. Please note that these required cookies will be associated with the personal information that you provide. Although you are always free to opt out from providing such information to us, the result is that you may not be able to avail yourself of some features of our Website.
Web Beacons: Certain pages on the Website contain “web beacons” (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs). These web beacons allow third parties to obtain information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, the type of browser used to view the page, and the information in cookies set by the third party. Web beacons also may be used to track whether you have opened an HTML email. When the email is opened, a part of the code that makes up the HTML page calls a web server to load the web beacon that then generates a record showing that the email has been viewed. Web beacons may also recognize when the email was opened, how many times it was forwarded and which URLs (links within the email) were clicked. We use Web Beacons to better understand your behavior, tell us which part of the Website you have visited and to save your preferences for future visits and compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are instructed not to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our activities.
IP Addresses: When you visit and interact with the Website, SU2C and third parties with whom we have contracted to provide services for us may collect Internet Protocol addresses (each an “IP Address”), as well as browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and page navigation. An IP Address is a unique identifier number that certain electronic devices use to identify and to communicate with each other on the Internet; your Internet Service Provider automatically assigns an IP Address to the computer that you are using. We gather this information to track website visitor movement in the aggregate, and to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Our goal in gathering this information is to learn how our customers and the public are using our service. We may use this information to enhance our Website or for other lawful purposes. Additionally we also use IP addresses to identify a users location and, when appropriate, to redirect them to a country-specific website.
Do Not Track: Every time your computer sends or receives information over the Web, the request begins with some short pieces of information called “headers.” These headers include information like what browser you are using, what language your computer is set to, and other details. The Do Not Track technology provides individual users with the ability to include a simple, machine-readable header indicating that they don’t want to be tracked, and sends a signal to Web sites’ visited requesting that the website disable either its tracking or cross-site user tracking of an individual user. Currently, various browsers – including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari – offer a “do not track” option. Presently, there is no consensus on how Do Not Track should be interpreted, and no common or accepted industry standard for implementing. Consequently, please note that SU2C’s Website does not currently respond to browsers’ Do Not Track signals, and as such your activities will be tracked, regardless of whether you have opted to enable the Do Not Track option offered by your browser.
HOW WE MAY SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
Also, please note that if you opt to make a donation in connection with SU2C’s promotion with American Airlines in which donors receive AAdvantage® bonus miles in return for their donation, SU2C will share the information we collect from you - including your name, email address, American Airlines AAdvantage account information, and your donation amount – with American Airlines.
THIRD PARTY WEBSITE
We also provide links to – and share functions with - a variety of third-party social media sites – such as Facebook, Twitter - and other websites as a service to you or in order to provide you additional information related SU2C or additional venues in which you can learn about and discuss the activities of SU2C. Please note that we have no affiliation with these other parties, and cannot control and are not responsible for the information collection, use, and disclosure practices of such third parties; we encourage you to review and understand their privacy practices and policies, if any, before using providing any personally identifying information to them. We are not responsible for the content or information of these websites, any products or services that may be offered through advertisers or third parties, or any other use of the linked website.
