Oregon Post Adoption Resource Center (www.orparc.org)
A program of Northwest Resource Associates (www.nwresource.org)

The Oregon Post Adoption Resource Center is committed to maintaining a web site that protects the individual's right to privacy. We do not require personal information from our visitors, nor do we collect any personally identifying information (name, e-mail address, Social Security number, or other unique identifier) unless you knowingly provide it. Likewise, we do not give, sell, or transfer any personal information to a third party except as might be required by law.

Data Collection for Statistics

To aid in web site management, certain information is collected for statistical purposes. The Oregon Post Adoption Resource Center uses specialized software to create summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing what information is of most and least interest to our clients, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.

We collect only the following information about your visit:

  • The name of the domain from which you access the Internet (for example, "princeton.edu" if you are connecting from Princeton University's domain, or "aol.com" if you are connecting from an America Online account);
  • The web site from which you linked directly to our web site, if you have used another web site to reach our site;
  • The operating system and web browser you use to view pages;
  • The date and time you access our web site.

We use the information we collect to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our web site, allowing us to make our web site more useful and accessible to visitors. We do not store any personal identifiers.

Information Collected from E-mails and Forms

You may decide to send us personally identifying information through e-mail messages or through on-line forms. Electronic communication allows us to collect information that will improve our web site for you, and we encourage it. We use personally-identifying information from consumers in various ways to further our client’s protection and to provide better service. This may be to correct broken links that you have identified or provide additional information that you have requested.

If a visitor chooses to use a credit card to make a donation or purchase, this information is stored in a secure environment and the information is used solely for its intended purpose.

Security Checks

For web site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, we employ software programs to monitor network traffic, identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. Unauthorized attempts to upload or change information on this web site are strictly prohibited.
