Privacy Policy

Your Privacy

This policy applies to all users of this website, and, described as the “Service” below.

Information We Collect

The Omaha Community Foundation (OCF) and its affiliates recognize and respect the privacy of its website users. Users of this Service are invited to voluntarily provide identifying information: name, location, Twitter account, photo, and your answer to one or more questions. Contact information (email) is required to submit information, but not to visit the website. This information will not be collected unless it is voluntarily provided.

We may, without your permission, electronically collect information regarding your online habits and location, including, without limitation, your remote location and “cookies.” Such information may be used to collect and analyze demographic information about the OCF’s website users and will only be used by the OCF and its affiliates or partners.

We also use third-party analytics tools to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Service, though we cannot identify any particular user or behavior with these tools. This information is used to help improve this Service.

How We Use and Store Your Information

Identifying information that is voluntarily provided (name, location, Twitter account, photo, and your answer to one or more questions) is visible to other users on this Service. In addition to the information being publicly viewable on the Service, OCF staff securely stores this information in our database and may use your answer to one or more questions and location given in reporting activities, though we will never attach your name or other identifying information in reports.

Your email address is securely stored and never visible to anyone outside of OCF staff. We may contact you about occasional project updates.

Removing Your Information

If you would like to remove your story page or any other personal information from the website that you voluntarily provided, please contact us at with a link to the information in question and description of your request, and we will respond within 1–3 business days. We can remove it from the website, but it may still be viewable through search engines and elsewhere online. Upon removal from the Service, your information may also still be stored in OCF’s private and secure database, unless you request otherwise.

You may unsubscribe to our email list any time, and your email will be removed from our list, by clicking “unsubscribe” in any email or by contacting us with your request.

Changes to Our Policy

We will periodically review this policy and notify users of any updates.
