This information is used in aggregate form in order to manage our Web site and improve its content

Individually Identifiable Information

We collect individually identifiable information about you when you choose to share information about yourself, for example, when you make a donation, request information or sign up to be an advocate. This information may include, but is not limited to, your postal or e-mail address, and your telephone number. 82nd Street Academics does not share, sell, rent, or trade information about its donors and other contacts.

We occasionally send out an email newsletter and direct email communications to 82nd Street Academics site visitors to highlight news,  information and opportunities available from 82nd Street Academics.  You can elect not to receive communications from us by noting your preference in response to communications from us.

Links to Other Sites

Our site provides links to other Web sites where you can find out more about our sponsors or products. Please note that 82nd Street Academics is not responsible for the information practices of linked sites. We encourage you to review the privacy policy of each site you visit


In order to prevent unauthorized access and protect our users personal information, we strive to maintain physical, electronic and administrative safeguards to secure the information we collect online.  For example, contributions are processed using a secure server. This secure server software, SSL (Secure Sockets Layer),  encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. Furthermore, all of the customer transaction data we collect is protected against unauthorized access with the use of digital certificates.  Notwithstanding our efforts to protect your information, no security system is completely impenetrable, so we cannot guarantee the absolute security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that information you supply to us will not be intercepted while in transit to us over the  Internet.
