However, in order to have access to certain products and services available on or through the Sorenson Legacy Foundation’s website or to inquire about or apply for employment, you may be required to complete a registration or application form and provide other information reasonably necessary to provide the products and/or services for you or to answer your inquiry about or process your application for employment. Some examples of the information we may need to collect in a registration or application form are:
- Your Name

We also collect anonymous, non-confidential, and non-personal information when you use our site, send us e-mails, or inquire about or apply for employment. For example, cookies are small computer files that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive that allow us to know how often someone visits a site and the activities they conduct while on that site (such as the chat rooms you visited, whether you submitted orders for services or products, whether you inquired about or applied for employment, etc.). Every computer is assigned a different cookie by the Sorenson Legacy Foundation. The information collected by cookies helps us dynamically generate advertising and content on web pages or in e-mails specifically designed for you and also allows us to statistically monitor how many people are using our site and selected affiliated business partners sites, or are opening our e-mails. We may use cookie information to target certain advertisements or announcements to your browser or to determine the popularity of certain content or advertisements. It may be possible to link non-personal cookie information to Personal Information collected.
D. Web Beacons
In limited circumstances we also may use “web beacons” to collect anonymous, non-personal information about your use of our website and the sites of selected affiliated partners, and your use of e-mails, special promotions or announcements we may send to you from time to time. Web beacons are tiny graphic image files imbedded in a web page or e-mail that provide a presence on the web page or e-mail and send back to its home server information from the Users’ browser. The information collected by web beacons allows us to statistically monitor how many people are using our site and selected affiliated business partners sites, or are opening our e-mails, and for what purposes. It may be possible to link non-personal web beacon information to Personal Information collected.
E. E-mails and Announcements
As noted in the discussions of cookies and web beacons (see above), we collect anonymous, non-personal information about your use of e-mails and announcements that we may send to you from time to time. In some cases, when you click on a link or an advertisement or an announcement in an e-mail or announcement, your browser may be momentarily directed to the site of a third party which, acting on the Sorenson Legacy Foundation’s behalf (see Disclosure to Website Service and Content Contractors, below), notes or “counts” your response to the e-mail or announcement before re-directing your browser to its proper destination. This re-direction process will not be apparent to you.

III. HOW THE SORENSON LEGACY FOUNDATION HANDLES PRIVACY AND SECURITY INTERNALLY.
IV. YOUR PRIVACY CHOICES
When you complete a registration or application form, you will be given the option of receiving recurring informational/announcement e-mails from the Sorenson Legacy Foundation and/or third parties. You may opt-out of receiving e-mails from or on behalf of or through the Sorenson Legacy Foundation when you register or complete an application form by removing the automatic checkmark from the statement that expresses a preference for receiving these e-mails and announcements. You may also opt-out of receiving these e-mails and announcements at any time.

The Sorenson Legacy Foundation Customer Service will unsubscribe you.
When you complete a registration or application form, you may also have the option of receiving e-mails or announcements from third parties, participating in research or marketing surveys and participating in other activities.

The Sorenson Legacy Foundation website does contain links to other sites. Once you enter another website (whether through an advertisement, service, or content link), be aware that the Sorenson Legacy Foundation is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites.

You should be aware that it may not be technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to the Sorenson Legacy Foundation from our servers. The need to back-up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of your Personal Information may exist in a non-erasable form that may be difficult or impossible for us to locate.
