USE OF THIS WEBSITE SIGNIFIES YOUR AGREEMENT TO THE TERMS OF USE AND PRIVACY POLICY.

The Alliance for a Healthier Generation is firmly committed to protecting your online privacy. By utilizing Alliance websites and/or entering information about yourself, you agree to be legally bound by this privacy policy. This statement may change over time; please review it periodically. By using Alliance websites after changes are posted to this Privacy Policy, you agree to accept those changes.

If this policy is not acceptable and you are unwilling to be bound by it, do not use Alliance websites or enter any information about yourself on it. If you have already done so, you can opt-out as explained below.

Types of Information Collected

If the Alliance collects information from you, it is only used for the purposes for which it was collected, and the other limited purposes outlined below.

The Alliance for a Healthier Generation’s websites collect two types of user information. The Alliance collects some non-personally identifiable information automatically and some from our registration forms and online surveys. Non-personally identifiable information might include your IP address, your browser type or operating system, the domain name from which you linked to our websites, your zip code, your age, and other general demographic information. The Alliance uses this non-personally identifiable information to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our websites; and may share it with our affiliates, or with our other business partners on an aggregated basis.

Alliance websites' donations, registration and contact forms, online surveys, and merchandise transactions may also request or require users to give the Alliance personally identifiable information (i.e.  name, telephone number, home address and e-mail address). The Alliance may use the information from our donations form, registration form, merchandise purchase forms and surveys to contact the user, but users may opt-out of receiving future mailings by sending an email to Info@HealthierGeneration.org. The Alliance will not sell or disclose your personally identifiable data to any third party unless the Alliance: (ii) changes website hosts or our host transfers business assets (as further described below); (ii) first obtains permission from you; (iii) needs to share it with agents or contractors who perform services for the Alliance; or (iv) is required by law to disclose it.

Google Analytics

The Alliance for a Healthier Generation uses Google Analytics to track visits to its websites. Google Analytics provides data on visitors' interactions, which helps the Alliance improve its websites and aid people in finding them. Cookies used on websites run by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation are limited to those websites, and visitors are not tracked across any other websites.

Google Analytics requires that any website using it must include a notice in its privacy policy that fully discloses the use of Google Analytics. To disable Google Analytics cookies, some browsers will indicate when a cookie is being sent and allow you to decline cookies. In addition, some browser add-ons, such as the Google Analytics Opt-out Add-on, will prevent Google Analytics from collecting information about your visits to websites run by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation.
