  3. How does Triumph Foundation use the information it collects?
    a.) General

    Triumph Foundation collects information to provide you with the services you request and to improve our website(s). We retain this information for as long as we anticipate that we still have a reasonable need for the information.

    If you join Triumph Foundation or renew your Triumph Foundation membership through our website(s), we use the personally identifiable information and demographic information you provide in the membership application to send you Triumph Foundation publications, information about member benefits and special offers, and other information that Triumph Foundation believes is relevant and useful to its members.

    As mentioned above, Triumph Foundation uses the aggregate, anonymous data collected to let our sponsors/advertisers know the number of impressions or views and the number of "click throughs" on their advertisement(s). Triumph Foundation also uses this aggregate, anonymous data to perform statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of our site visitors; to measure user interests regarding specific areas of Triumph Foundation Websites; and to analyze how and where best to use our resources. Without such data, we would not know which parts of Triumph Foundation Websites are the most popular, and we would not be able to change and update the content and services appropriately.

    Triumph Foundation may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide information on individual users to the appropriate governmental authorities. In matters involving a danger to personal or public safety, Triumph Foundation may voluntarily provide information to appropriate governmental authorities.

    b.) Exceptions

    On occasion Triumph Foundation collects personal information or demographic information through Triumph Foundation Websites with the intent to afford a greater degree of privacy for such information than is otherwise set forth in this privacy policy.

For example, Triumph Foundation may collect survey information through a survey where Triumph Foundation’s use of any personal information from that survey is more limited than the general Triumph Foundation Privacy Statement would otherwise allow; in such a case Triumph Foundation will disclose the stricter privacy policy governing that survey information at the time such personal information is collected from the survey respondent.
