By using this website, you agree to these Terms and Conditions. If you do not accept the Terms and Conditions stated here, do not use this website. SKIP may revise these Terms and Conditions at any time by updating this posting.

The content on the SKIP website is owned, operated and administered by or licensed to SKIP of New York. The content is presented as a courtesy on an “as is” basis to be used only for informational purposes, and is not represented to be free or errors. The content, such as text, graphics, images, trademarks and other content are protected by the United States and international copyright, trademark, and other intellectual property laws, and unless otherwise stated, are owned by SKIP.

Privacy & Security Policy

SKIP is committed to protecting your privacy when you visit its website. Information we collect from you is used to improve the site, provide you with a better experience, respond to your questions and to process information requests, online donations and event registrations. The following information explains how SKIP collects, uses and safeguards your information. This Policy may be revised at any time.

Please note that this Policy applies only to the SKIP website. Your browsing and interaction on any other website, including websites which have a link on the SKIP website, is subject to that website’s own rules and policies. We suggest that you access these other website’s policies regarding their own data collection practices.

What Information is Collected

SKIP collects two types of information on our website:

  1. Web server traffic information. This information is used to determine the number of visitors to our site, length of stay and sources of traffic. We collect aggregate data — or totals of those visiting from a domain — not information identifying individual users. We use this information to help improve our site and our service to you.
  2. Personal information provided by you. We collect email addresses and other personal information only when you provide it to us. If you fill out a form or survey, register for an event, request information or make a donation, we may collect your name, address, city, state, zip code, telephone number and email address.

Use of Personal Information

SKIP does not sell, trade, rent or share its website visitor’s personal information to other organizations. SKIP does not send out mailings on behalf of other organizations, unless the mailing concerns a joint project of SKIP. If you willingly provide us with your personal information, SKIP may use it in the following ways:

  • Donations: When you make an online donation to us, the personal and financial information you provide is strictly limited to professional staff who need to process the data. No such data are given to any person, organization or group who does not need access to this data. SKIP uses an online payment processing service with security and strong reputation. Credit card numbers are used only for processing donations and payments and not for any other purpose. SKIP honors its donors with public recognition of their donation. Unless the donor explicitly chooses the “anonymous” field when donating online, staff and volunteers will assume the donation may be publicly announced.

    SKIP will use contact information (e-mail, telephone number and address) of donors for the following purposes only:

    • Distribute receipts for donations
    • Thank donors for their donations
    • Inform donors about upcoming fundraising and other activities of SKIP
    • Internal analysis and record keeping
    • Reporting to relevant U.S. and State agencies, as for example, 990 requirements
  • Email Information Requests and Questions: When we respond to your email requests or questions, we may collect your email address and send you other information we think you will find valuable, such as SKIP email bulletins. To opt out and remove your name from future emails of this type, follow the unsubscribe instructions below under Removing Your Name from Our Mailing List.
  • SKIP Newsletter: When you sign up to receive the SKIP Newsletter, we collect your email address and we may also send you other information we think you will find valuable, such as SKIP email bulletins. To opt out and remove your name from future emails of this type, follow the unsubscribe instructions below under Removing Your Name from Our Mailing List.
  • Event Registration: SKIP offers online registration for its events, and we may collect your email address and send you other information we think you will find valuable, such as SKIP email bulletins. To opt out and remove your name from future emails of this type, follow the unsubscribe instructions below under Removing Your Name from Our Mailing List.
