This site is provided by Stimulating Minds through Entrepreneurship and Leadership ("SMEL"). SMEL does not intend to collect personal information from children under the age of 13. Our information collection practices are described below. While we encourage children to visit our site and learn more about our programs, we recommend, however, that parents approve and closely supervise the activity of their children at this and all other online sites. We urge children to check with their parents before entering information on any website and we urge parents to discuss with their children restrictions regarding the online release of personal information to anyone they don't know.
The Information SMEL Collects
SMEL collects information in several ways from different parts of this site. SMEL may collect personal information from you when you register with this site. SMEL also may ask you for personal information at other times, such as when you ask a question or report a problem with this site. If you contact SMEL, SMEL may keep a record of that session or correspondence, including a record of your e-mail address. SMEL may also occasionally ask users to complete surveys for research purposes. There also may be services on this site that require you to fill out an online form or send SMEL an e-mail message in order to utilize these services. SMEL collects any information that you provide in such circumstances, including any personal information.
We may ask you for identifying and personal information to:
Invite you to receive periodic e-mail updates about our progress: When you accept, or "opt in," we ask you to give us your e-mail address and respond to some questions that help us tailor our information to your interests. You can "opt out" of receiving these periodic updates at any time.

How SMEL Uses the Information It Collects
SMEL understands the importance of privacy and confidentiality to users of this site. From time to time, SMEL may share donor names and mailing addresses with other reputable nonprofit organizations on a limited basis in exchange for limited access to the names and addresses of their constituents. We have found this is a cost-effective method of reaching additional potential constituents. These organizations will not have continued access to your name and address unless you choose to respond to their initial mailing. We do not share email address data in connection with this list exchange.
We respect our donors’ choices and control over their information. You, as a donor, may, at any time, have your name excluded from any donor list exchange activity. To ask that your name be excluded from list exchange activity or to otherwise change how SMEL contacts you, please email us at email@example.com.
Integrity and Security
Use of SSL and encryption – When SMEL transfers and receives certain types of sensitive information such as online donations and account information, we direct visitors to a secure server, which communicates via SSL encryption and which has been designed to reduce the possibility of interception and hacking. You’ll know that you’re in a secure area of our website when the "http" portion of the SMEL website address in your browser changes to "https." The "s" stands for "secure."
Restricting who has access to your information – SMEL employs commercially reasonable managerial and technical measures to help protect the security and integrity of the personal information it collects online through this site. You acknowledge, however, that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while SMEL strives to protect your personal information, SMEL cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to or from this site
Privacy Practices of Other Sites
We assume no liability for any unauthorized actions of third parties or accidental transmission errors that may disclose information about you, and SMEL is not responsible for these other sites' privacy practices, which may be different from SMEL's privacy practices.
Contacting SMEL About Your Personal Information
If you would like to review the personal information that SMEL has collected about you through this site in order to verify its accuracy and completeness, or if you have a question or complaint regarding SMEL's privacy practices, or to request that SMEL delete your personal information from its records, please contact SMEL at firstname.lastname@example.org.
