What Personally Identifiable Information is collected?
We may collect basic user profile information from all of our Visitors.
What organizations are collecting the information?
In addition to our direct collection of information, our third party service vendors may collect this information from our Visitors. We do not control how these third parties use such information, but we do ask them to disclose how they use personal information provided to them from Visitors. Some of these third parties may be intermediaries that act solely as links in the distribution chain, and do not store, retain, or use the information given to them.
How does the Site use Personally Identifiable Information?
We use Personally Identifiable Information to customize the Site and, potentially, to make appropriate service offerings. We may email Visitors about information related to the subject matter of the Site. We may also use Personally Identifiable Information to contact Visitors in response to specific inquiries, or to provide requested information.
With whom may the information may be shared?
We may share aggregated information about our Visitors, including the demographics of our Visitors, with our affiliated agencies and third party vendors. We also offer the opportunity to “opt out” of receiving information or being contacted by us or by any agency acting on our behalf.
How is Personally Identifiable Information stored?
Personally Identifiable Information collected by upthedownstair.org is securely stored and is not accessible to third parties or employees of upthedownstair.org except for use as indicated above.

The Personally Identifiable Information of our Visitors is only accessible to the Site administrator(s). We audit our security systems and processes on a regular basis. Sensitive information (such as credit card numbers) is protected by encryption protocols, in place to protect information sent over the Internet.

However, because of backups and records of deletions, it may be impossible to delete a Visitor’s entry without retaining some residual information. An individual who requests to have Personally Identifiable Information deactivated will have this information functionally deleted, and we will not sell, transfer, or use Personally Identifiable Information relating to that individual in any way moving forward.
