MyPath respects the privacy of its clients and of those who visit the www.MyPathUS.org website at www.MyPathUs.org (including any subpages or mobile versions thereof) Site (“Site(s)”) owned and operated by MyPath. This Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy” or “Policy”) describes how MyPath protects the privacy and security of personal information (“Personal Information”) of users of this Site.


By using this Site, you signify your acceptance of this Privacy Policy. Your continued use of the Site means you consent to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

This Policy is incorporated into our MyPath Money Terms of Use and may include terms that are defined in our other additional agreements. In the event of a conflict between this Policy and the terms in the additional agreements, the additional agreement will control.  You may arrive at a third-party site or service when using our Site, in which case this Policy does not apply. Please review the policies of any third party to learn how they may treat your Personal Information.


This Policy may change from time to time. We will post the most current version on our Site with the effective date.


This Privacy Policy covers how MyPath treats personal information that you submit to us, and information is collected through your use of this Site. Personal information is information that may include your name, e-mail address, phone number, and any information that identifies you as an individual or relates to an individual linked to such identifying information.

When You Provide Us with Information

Except as described in this Privacy Policy, MyPath only collects your Personal Information through this Site when you choose to provide such information, such as when you use the “Contact Us” feature, make a Donation, provide a Testimonial, or submit applications related to MyPath’s programs and services.  For example, if you fill out the form for our updates or more information, MyPath will collect such information.

Automatically Collected Information

MyPath collects aggregate queries for internal reporting and may also count, track, and/or aggregate visitors’ activity into MyPath’s analysis of general traffic-flow at the Site. To these ends, MyPath may merge your information into aggregated group data. In some cases, MyPath may remove personal identifiers from Personal Information and maintain it in aggregate form that may later be combined with other information to generate anonymous, aggregated statistical information. 

An Internet Protocol (“IP”) address is a number that automatically identifies the computer/machine you have used to access the Internet. The IP address enables our server to send you the web pages that you want to visit, and it may disclose the server owned by your Internet Service Provider. MyPath may use IP addresses to conduct Site analyses and performance reviews and to administer the Site.

Cookies are pieces of information that a Site transfers to a user’s computer for purposes of storing information about a user’s preferences. Cookies in and of themselves do not personally identify users, although they do identify a user’s computer. Many Sites use cookies as a standard practice to provide useful features when a user visits the Site and most web browsers are set up to accept cookies. MyPath uses cookies to improve your online experience when visiting the Site. You can set your browser to refuse cookies, but some portions of the Site may not work properly if you refuse cookies. Some of the Site’s web pages may use web beacons in conjunction with cookies to compile aggregate statistics about Site usage. A web beacon is an electronic image (also referred to as an “action tag,” “single-pixel,” or “clear GIF”) that is commonly used to track the traffic patterns of users from one web page to another in order to maximize web traffic flow and to otherwise analyze the effectiveness of Sites. Some web beacons may be unusable if you elect to reject their associated cookies. We may also use clear GIFs (or similar technology) in our e-mail communications to document who has opened or responded to our communications.


We may use your Personal Information for the following general purposes: to provide, administer and improve our services, (ii) to better understand your needs and interests, (iii) to fulfill requests you may make, (iv) to personalize your experience, (v) to provide program and service announcements, (vi) to provide you with further information and offers from MyPath and our affiliates, (vii) apply for financial grants, receiving donation and reporting to current and prospective donors, or (viii)to protect, investigate and deter against fraudulent, harmful, unauthorized or illegal activity.


If you donate money to use from our Site, we request that you provide your name, email address, billing address, credit card information, telephone number, and other information necessary to complete the transaction. We do not collect or store your full credit card information (although we may store the last four digits for verification purposes). The service provider who manages our donations (or credit card processing service provider) may collect and store full payment card information from you to process your donations.


We display personal testimonials from participants in our programs, in addition to other endorsements. With your consent we may post your testimonial along with your name and image. If you wish to update or delete your testimonial, please contact us at [email protected]. If you provide us with comments or feedback we may collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail to send you a reply and improve our service.

Demographic Information

MyPath recognizes that certain User Information of a key demographic nature (e.g., race, age, gender, national origin, income), while not Personal Information, is still of a sensitive nature to users. As a general matter, MyPath does not collect such information about you through the Site. However, in recognition of the sensitive nature of such information, in the event MyPath comes into possession of such information, whether through your voluntary submission of such information in response to a special feature on the Site or by receiving such information from any of our business partners, such information shall, when coupled with any of your Personal Information, itself be deemed to be Personal Information and treated MyPath as such.

Our Site may include social media features, such as the Facebook “like” button, and widgets, such as the “share this” button.

Your interactions with these features are governed by the Privacy Policy of the company providing such functionality.

Disclosures Under Special Circumstances

MyPath may provide information about you to respond to subpoenas, court orders, legal process or governmental regulations, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims. We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or as otherwise required by law.

If another organization acquires our organization or our assets, that organization will thereafter possess the personal information collected by us and assume the rights and obligations regarding your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy.

MyPath stores Personal Information and other data using reasonable physical, technical and administrative safeguards to secure data against foreseeable risks, such as unauthorized use, access, disclosure, destruction or modification.

We use cookies (small text files stored in your browser) and other techniques such as web beacons (small, clear picture files used to follow your online activities) (“Tracking Technologies”). Tracking Technologies collect information about how you use our Site, web-related products, and Services. The use of Tracking Technologies does not give us access to the rest of your computer.

This, in turn, helps us make our Services relevant to your interests and needs. We use various Tracking Technologies, including functional, performance, advertising, and social media or content cookies. Please see our Cookie Policy for more details.

Choices About How We Use and Disclose Your Information

We strive to provide you with choices regarding the personal information you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information:


You may voluntarily sign up for periodic communications from us or a third-party affiliate.  We may send you promotional communications via email, including, but not limited to, newsletters, special offers, surveys and other news and information we think will be of interest to you.

How Do We Share Your Personal Information?

No mobile information will be shared with third parties/affiliates for marketing/promotional purposes. All other categories exclude text messaging originator opt-in data and consent; this information will not be shared with any third parties.

How Do We Protect Your Information?

To protect your Personal Information, we take commercially reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to ensure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed. However, no data protection procedures are entirely infallible.  As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee that it will be 100% secure. The transmission of your information to our Site thus is done entirely at your own risk.

Third-Party Websites and Social Media

Our Site may contain links to other sites, including those of third parties or partners.  While we seek to link only to sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we cannot be responsible for the privacy practices other websites use.  By accessing other third-party websites or applications through our Site, you are consenting to the terms and privacy policies of those websites.  It is possible that other parties may collect personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you use our Site.

Our Site may include social media features, such as Facebook “Likes” or “Recommend” buttons, Pinterest, Twitter, Tumblr, and YouTube.  These social media features may require cookies to be set to function properly.  These features may also collect Personal Information such as your IP address.  These features are governed by the Privacy Policy of the social media platform.  Please review the Privacy Policy of the social media platforms to learn how they protect your information.
