What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Our contact forms collect your name, e-mail address, and the content of your e-mail.
Registration forms for trainings: all the data you choose to fill in or confirm. This may include credit or debit card information if you are registering for a training or making a payment.
No other information is collected through our website except when you deliberately send it to us.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
We use Google Analytics to track website performance and PayPal to process donations.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
We collect identifying, or personal information (such as full name, address, email address, telephone numbers and/or credit/debit card information) ONLY when you voluntarily submit it to us when you make a donation or register for our ACCESS Programs, such as the Medical Interpreting Training. As a donor, this information is required in order for us to process your donations, requests, or registration to our trainings and to provide you with information on our programs, campaigns and events. We never share credit/debit card information that is provided to us.
How we protect your data
We have an SSL Certificate in place on our website to prevent unauthorized access to and use of your personal information. SSL Certificates create a secure link between a website and a visitor’s browser. By ensuring that all information passed between the two remains private and secure, SSL encryption prevents hackers from stealing private information such as credit card numbers, names and addresses.

We reserve the right, at any time and without notice, to modify this policy by posting such changes on its site. Any modifications are effective immediately upon posting.
