Privacy Policy - Bornfree

By using this Site, you indicate your acceptance of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree or are not comfortable with any of the terms described in this Privacy Policy, your only remedy is to discontinue use of this Site.

The Business Leadership Council for a Generation Born HIV Free Foundation dba Born Free ("BORNFREE") is committed to protecting the privacy and integrity of personally identifiable information gathered from visitors to our website located at (the "Site"). We have created this privacy policy (the "Privacy Policy") to inform you about how we collect, protect and use the personal information that you provide and describe the choices you have concerning our use of such information.

"Personally identifiable information" is information that can be linked to a specific individual, such as, for example, a name, address, phone number or email address provided by a visitor to the Site. You do not need to share personally identifiable information to use the Site. You can visit most portions of the Site without telling us who you are and without revealing any personally identifiable information. Personally identifiable information is only requested when you wish to join BORNFREE’s mailing list, follow BORNFREE on Twitter, apply for a position at BORNFREE, contact BORNFREE directly, or donate money. If you do not wish for us to receive your personally identifiable information, please do not provide it to us.

The Site is a general audience website, and BORNFREE does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13 years of age. If we discover that a person under 13 years of age has provided us with any personally identifiable information, we will delete that information from our systems. We are unable to reply to information requests from children under 13 years of age, if so identified. A parent or guardian must initiate any requests for information from children under 13 years of age on their behalf.

Like most web sites, BORNFREE may use Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to gather aggregate information about website usage in order to analyze trends, administer the Site, track visitor movement and click-through behavior, and gather broad demographic information that is not personally identifiable. This information helps us to better understand our visitors’ site usage patterns and the types of content and information that may help improve your and other visitors’ experience on the Site.


BORNFREE uses "cookies" on BORNFREE Donate pages and for Google Analytics, and may, from time to time, make other uses of cookies in connection with the operation of the Site. A cookie is a small piece of data stored on a visitor’s hard drive that is used to enhance a visitor’s experience by saving the visitor from having to log in or provide information each time he or she re-visits BORNFREE Donate or Google Analytics pages, which are accessible by registered users only, and by customizing content based on a visitor's indicated interests.  You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie from the Site, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept or refuse it. You may continue browsing our Site even if you decide not to accept the cookie. However, if you decide to erase or block the cookie you may not be able to utilize some features of the Site.
