About Cookies

Cookies, which are small text files recorded in a user's hard drive, are employed by thousands of sites to enhance user's Web viewing experience. Cookies cannot damage user files, nor can they read information from a user's hard drive. Cookies allow Web sites to "remember" users across pages of a Web site and across multiple visits to a Web site. We use cookies for remembering preferences and maintaining information about whether you're currently logged into our systems. Because of our use of cookies, we can deliver faster service, consistent, updated results, and a more personalized site experience. Cookies in and of themselves do not personally identify users, although they do identify a user's computer. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. If you prefer, you can set your browser to refuse cookies. However, you may not be able to take full advantage of a Web site's functionality if you disable your cookies.

Our Commitment To Children's Privacy

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

How You Can Access Or Correct Your Information

You can access all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by contacting The Family Effect at kbyers@thefamilyeffect.org and requesting this information. We use this procedure to better safeguard your information. You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information online or by sending us a request that credibly shows the error(s). To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.

If you have any questions or concerns about our privacy policy, please call Scott Dishman at (864) 467-3748.  You can also send Scott an e-mail.
