The Arianna Foundation

Privacy Policy

The privacy policy outlined below applies to all current and former website visitors, applicants, grantees, donors, registered users, et. al. of The Arianna Foundation (TAF).

Information Collection

TAF may collect personal information (e.g. name, email address, phone number, etc.) during registration, application, donation, and communication processes.

In general, TAF will collect only the information necessary to deliver the specific service(s) or information you are requesting.

The TAF website also utilizes a standard web technology called cookies to collect information (e.g. date, time, pages viewed, etc.) related to how our website is used.

Information Usage

TAF will not sell, rent, trade, or lease your information to others unless we have requested and have received your permission, or are required to disclose it by law.

Information entered during the donation process is primarily used to securely process your payment.  This information will also be used to deliver mandatory IRS contribution reports to certain donors.  TAF will also publish the donor’s first name and donation amount on each project page to show progress against the project’s goal.

Information entered during the login process is used to restrict access to only the pages, services, and data for which the user logging in is authorized. Any information provided, viewed, or generated while logged into this secure environment remains restricted to being accessed by only the authorized owner(s) unless otherwise tagged with owner-specified sharing attributes.

TAF will sometimes use your contact information to send you certain mandatory service communications such as registration authentication, technical service information, TAF updates, and security announcements. Users will have the ability through their profile and/or services settings to control all non-critical communications.

Finally, “cookies” and other similar web tools are used to enhance your experience at our website. If you do not wish to transmit “cookie” information, you may turn off the cookie function in your web browser.

Data Protection

TAF is committed to ensuring the security of your information. We use industry-standard processes such as encryption to ensure that sensitive data are protected while transmitted to/from the TAF website. The web server architecture is designed to protect client data in a database that will use an SQL server security model and reside behind a firewall, eliminating direct access by the outside world. There are also appropriate security measures in place in the physical facilities housing the data servers to prevent loss or unauthorized use of sensitive information.

External Links

Websites operated by our partners, alliances, grant recipients, or other third parties may provide links to, or may be accessed from, the TAF website. TAF does not make any representations or warranties about any such websites. They are independent from TAF and TAF has no control over, or responsibility for, their information or activities.


By using the TAF website or services, you consent to the collection and use of personal and organizational information as outlined in the policy described here. Information may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which TAF or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using the TAF website or services, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.
