Basic Confidentiality Policy

It is Yellowstone Schools’ policy that personal information, such as your name, postal and e-mail addresses and telephone number, is private and confidential. Accordingly, the personal information you provide is stored in a secure location and is accessible only by designated staff. If you also indicate on our site that you would like to receive Yellowstone Schools communications or other information, your personal information will be added to the appropriate mailing list.

Donor Confidentiality

Except as required by law, Yellowstone Schools will not disclose information about a donor or a donor’s gift.  However, unless otherwise requested by the donor, Yellowstone may publish the names of individual donors in its Annual Report and other reported listings.   In the case of memorial gifts, Yellowstone will provide the names of donors to members of the immediate family unless the donor has requested anonymity.  Yellowstone will not disclose the amount of any gift without the donor’s consent.  Yellowstone may accept anonymous gifts to it on a case by case basis.Yellowstone Schools will not sell, share or trade donors’ names or personal information with any other entity, nor send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations unless express permission is given by donor. This policy applies to all information received by Yellowstone Schools, both online and offline, on any Platform (“Platform”, includes Yellowstone websites and mobile applications), as well as any electronic, written, or oral communications. To the extent any donations are processed through a third-party service provider, our donors’ information will only be used for purposes necessary to process the donation.


No Release of Information to Third Parties

Personal information will not be released or sold to third parties.


No Computer Tracking of Identifiable Information

Our website is not set up to track, collect or distribute personal information about its visitors. It does recognize the home server of visitors, but not email addresses. For example, we can tell which Internet Service Provider our visitors use, but not the specific names, addresses or other information about our visitors that would allow us to identify the particular visitors to our site. This information is used only for internal purposes by Yellowstone technical support staff.In addition, our website tracks information about the visits to our website. For example, we compile statistics that show the daily number of visitors to our site, the daily requests we receive for particular files on our website, and what regions those requests come from. These aggregated statistics are used internally to better provide services to the public and may also be provided to others, but again, the statistics contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information.


Our Commitment to the Privacy of Children

Protecting the privacy of children is especially important to Yellowstone Schools. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information on our website from those we actually know are under age 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under age 13.


Program Participants

Yellowstone Schools is not responsible for the privacy practices or policies of participants in its various programs.
