We also collect information we receive from you during online registration and when you complete other forms. In the following sections, we explain in more detail the types of information we collect online.

Information we collect automatically on our website. NEBRASKA MEDAL OF HONOR FOUNDATION may collect certain information automatically (either directly, through the use of cookies and Web beacons or through the use of third-party service providers, agents or independent contractors who help us maintain our websites and provide other administrative services to us). This information includes:

  • Information collected through cookies, Web beacons and other technologies
    • A “cookie” is a piece of information a website sends to your computer while you are viewing the website that allows the site to recognize your computer each time you visit. You have the choice to set your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies or notify you when a cookie is set. (Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.) It is up to you whether to allow us to send you cookies. However, if you do not accept cookies from us, your ability to use some areas of our site will be limited, such as our tools and other online features.
    • Web beacons (sometimes called transparent GIFs, clear GIFs or Web bugs) are small strings of code that provide a way for us to deliver a small graphic image (usually invisible) on a Web page or in an email. Web beacons can recognize certain types of information on your computer such as cookies, the time and date a page is viewed, and a description of the page where the Web beacon is placed.
  • Information about your interactions with email messages, such as the links clicked on and whether the messages were opened or forwarded
  • Upon request for assistance, your bandwidth speed and information about the software programs installed on your computer
  • Standard server log information

The following are examples of information we may collect from other sources:

Please note that all of the information we collect about you may be combined, and it may be used to help us tailor our communications to you and may be shared with third parties consistent with this Privacy Policy.

We may allow third-party analytics companies, research companies or ad networks to collect non-personally identifiable information on our website. These companies may use tracking technologies, including cookies and Web beacons, to collect information about users of our site in order to analyze, report on or customize advertising on our site or on other sites.  

We may provide links or automatically redirect you to third-party websites that do not operate under this Privacy Policy. For example, if you click on an advertisement presented on our site, you may be taken to a website that NEBRASKA MEDAL OF HONOR FOUNDATION does not operate or control. You should review the privacy policies and terms of use of all third-party websites you access. These third-party websites may independently solicit and collect information from you. On occasion, those third-party websites may provide us with information about your use of those sites. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PRIVACY POLICY DOES NOT COVER THE COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION BY SUCH THIRD PARTIES.

If you stay logged in to your social media accounts, log-in to our website using your social media account, use a “like” button or use other social media features while visiting our website those social media companies may collect information about you.  Your interactions with social media companies and the use of their features are governed by the privacy policies of the social media companies who provide those features.

NEBRASKA MEDAL OF HONOR FOUNDATION is committed to maintaining your trust and we want you to understand when and with whom your information may be shared.

Your information may be shared with:

  • Service Providers. Service Providers are third parties with whom we may work to offer a service or feature such as a job search feature that is operated by Indeed or LinkedIn. You can tell when you are accessing a service offered by a Service Provider because the Service Provider’s name will be featured prominently. You may be asked to provide information about yourself to register for a service offered by a Service Provider. In doing so, you may be providing your information to both us and the Service Provider, or we may share your information with the Service Provider. Please note that the Service Provider’s privacy policy may apply to its use of your information.
  • Social Media Advertising Networks.  We may share information about you with social media networks to allow for the delivery of customized advertising about products and services that you may be interested in.  We provide this information to the social media network so they can deliver the ad to the right social media user. The delivery of customized social media ads, and your ability to opt-out of receiving those ads, is governed by the privacy policies of the social media companies who deliver customized ads to you. 
  • Licensed Providers. Licensed providers are third parties who make available special NEBRASKA MEDAL OF HONOR FOUNDATION-branded discounts, products or services. Some of the licensed providers of NEBRASKA MEDAL OF HONOR FOUNDATION-branded products and services, including many of those listed on the Member Benefits page on NEBRASKA MEDAL OF HONOR, pay a fee for access to our membership list. These fees are used for the general purposes of NEBRASKA MEDAL OF HONOR FOUNDATION. Licensed providers are required to keep NEBRASKA MEDAL OF HONOR FOUNDATION member information confidential, and to use the information only to offer the contracted products or services to NEBRASKA MEDAL OF HONOR FOUNDATION and NEBRASKA MEDAL OF HONOR FOUNDATION members. Some of our licensed providers may also collect data about our members through their interactions with the members. The licensed providers may share some or all of this data with NEBRASKA MEDAL OF HONOR FOUNDATION so that we may make available more effective and personalized service to our members. We may share information including personally identifiable information collected with Licensed Providers, even if you are not an NEBRASKA MEDAL OF HONOR FOUNDATION member.
  • Corporate Affiliates. We may share information including your personally identifiable information with wholly or majority owned affiliates or other affiliated organizations.  
  • Approved Vendors. We may share your information including your personally identifiable information with companies we hire to provide certain services such as sending mailings, improving advertising services, providing member benefits and managing databases or other technology.
  • Selected Nonprofit Organizations. We may occasionally engage in “list exchanges” with selected nonprofit organizations in which we may share your information including your personally identifiable information.
  • Aggregate Data. We may share aggregate statistics and other non-personally identifiable information with the media, government agencies, advertisers and other third parties. These aggregate statistics will not allow anyone to identify your name or other personally identifiable information.

NEBRASKA MEDAL OF HONOR FOUNDATION May Share Your Information with Other Third Parties:

  • Pursuant to Legal Requirements. NEBRASKA MEDAL OF HONOR FOUNDATION will disclose your personally identifiable information in response to a subpoena or similar investigative demand, a court order, or a request for cooperation from a law enforcement agency or other government agency; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law.
  • To Protect Our Website and Users. We will disclose your personally identifiable information when we believe disclosure is necessary to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing; to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of our company, our employees, our website users or others; or to enforce our website terms and conditions or other agreements or policies.
  • In Connection with Business Transfers. We may share your personally identifiable information as required by law, such as in response to a subpoena or court order or in the unlikely event of a substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale of NEBRASKA MEDAL OF HONOR FOUNDATION or our affiliates, a merger, consolidation, asset sale or bankruptcy.

NEBRASKA MEDAL OF HONOR FOUNDATION uses commercially reasonable physical, procedural and technological security measures to help prevent unauthorized access to and improper use of the information we collect about you. For example, only authorized employees and authorized third parties are permitted to access personally identifiable information, and they may do so only for lawful purposes. When we share aggregate data with third parties we prohibit them from reengineering nonpersonal data to permit identification of individual users. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to guard your nonpublic personal information. However, no website or Internet network can be completely secure. Although we take steps to secure your information, we do not guarantee, and you should not expect, that your personal information, searches or other communications will always remain secure. Please refer to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s website for information on how to protect yourself from identity theft.

You have options for limiting who can see your information:

  • If you choose to share contact information with us, you will have the opportunity to update or delete that information or to shut down your account by contacting us. 
  • You may request that we not share personally identifiable information about you with Licensed Providers and Selected Nonprofits at any time, by contacting us. 
  • It may take up to 4 weeks to complete this process. Note that we may still share your information with Other Third Parties.  
  • You may request to stop receiving communications from us by contacting us. 
  • Please note that if you opt out of receiving communications from us, you may continue to receive material from Service Providers, and/or other parties to whom we provided your information before processing your request to opt-out of communications. You will need to directly contact those third parties in order to opt out of receiving such communications. You also may opt out of receiving such emails by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link within the text of those third- party emails.
  • Do Not Track:  NEBRASKA MEDAL OF HONOR FOUNDATION is in favor of the development of a Do Not Track standard that gives consumers control over the collection and use of web browsing information. When such a standard is finalized, NEBRASKA MEDAL OF HONOR FOUNDATION intends to respond to Do Not Track browser settings accordingly. For information about how to opt-out of the customization of advertising by ad networks on NEBRASKA MEDAL OF HONOR FOUNDATION web sites, you can contact us. 

Even if you opt out of the sharing of information for the purpose of customizing ads to your interests, NEBRASKA MEDAL OF HONOR FOUNDATION may continue to collect and use such information for other purposes.
