This Privacy Policy discloses the privacy practices for the website located at www.___________ (the
“Site”), which is provided by ATI Foundation, an Illinois not-for-profit corporation (referred to as “us”
or “we”). This Privacy Policy governs the use of information you provide us through the Site. You
acknowledge and agree that by accessing or using the Site, you agree to be bound by all terms and
conditions of this Privacy Policy and consent to the collection, storage, use, processing, and disclosure
of your information, as set forth in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree and consent to such terms and
conditions, please do not access or use this Site.
We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time. Such changes, modifications, additions,
or deletions shall be effective immediately upon notice thereof, which may be given by any means
including, but not limited to, posting the revised policy on the Site or sending a message to the email
address you provided, if any. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to review this Site

1. Types of Information Collected. We collect two types of information about our users: Personally
Identifiable Information and Non-personally Identifiable Information. Our primary goal in collecting
information from you is to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience while
using our Site. 

(a) Personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that lets us know the specifics
of who you are. When you engage in certain activities on this Site, such as inquiring about our
services or activities; registering to attend an event or activity; signing up to receive a newsletter,
e-mail notifications, or other correspondence; making a donation; submitting an application to be
considered for a grant; interacting with the Site; or sending us feedback, we may ask you to
provide certain information about yourself. It is completely optional for you to engage in these
activities. However, we may ask that you provide us personal information, such as your first and
last name, mailing address, email address, telephone number, and other personal identifying
information. When making a donation, you may be asked to provide a credit card number or
bank account information. Depending upon the matter, some of the information we ask you to
provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory
information, you may not be eligible to participate in an activity or apply for a grant or you may
not be able to complete your request.

(b) Non-personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that does not by itself
identify a specific individual. We gather certain information about you based upon where you
visit on our Site in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal
and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”)
from the website that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are
using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. A URL is the global address of documents and
other resources on the World Wide Web. An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device
on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (“TCP/IP”) network, such as the World
Wide Web. Networks like the Web use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP
address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically
assigned to your computer whenever you are using the Internet, allowing web servers to locate

and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate
on the Internet.

2. Collection, Use, Location, and Retention.

(a) Information You Provide: We do not collect any Personally Identifiable Information about you
unless you voluntarily provide it to us. You provide certain Personally Identifiable Information
to us when you: (a) inquire about our services or activities; (b) register to attend an event or
activity; (c) sign up to receive a newsletter, e-mail notifications, or other correspondence; (d)
make a donation; (e) submit an application to be considered for a grant (f) send an email message
or submit a form; (g) submit information in connection with the interactive features of the Site if
any; (h) transmit other information through the Site; or (i) submit your credit card, bank account,
or other payment information through the Site. We may also collect information from you at
other points on the Site that state that such information is being collected.

(b) Analytics Providers: In addition, we or our third-party analytics providers may collect certain
Non-personally Identifiable Information. This information is ultimately stored in the form of
categories, and, in some cases, specific URLs. We use your IP address to diagnose problems
with our servers and software, to administer the Site, and to gather demographic information. 

(c) Use of Information: We will primarily use your Personally Identifiable Information to provide
our services to you and to respond to your requests. In addition, we may use your Personally
Identifiable Information to enhance the operation of the Site; respond to your questions or
inquiries; process your registration for an event or activity; send periodic communications to you
about our services and activities; process your donation; process and review your grant
application; improve our outreach efforts; statistically analyze Site use; improve our offerings;
customize the Site’s content, layout, and services; resolve disputes; troubleshoot problems; and
other administrative matters.

(d) Location of Processing and Storage; Transfer: We intend to use, process and store your
Personally Identifiable Information at facilities within the United States. By submitting your
Personally Identifiable Information to us, you hereby consent to the transfer of your Personally
Identifiable Information to areas outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”), including to
destinations within the United States, and its use, processing and storage in such jurisdictions.
The possible risks of transferring your Personally Identifiable Information outside of the EEA
include financial loss, identity theft, and being unable to exercise the rights you would usually
have under the data protection laws of the EEA or other jurisdictions. We may need to transfer
your Personally Identifiable Information to a destination outside of the United States for use,
processing or storage, including back-up of our data. If we transfer your Personally Identifiable
Information outside of the United States, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that the
recipient implements appropriate measures to protect your information. You hereby consent to
the transfer, use, processing, and storage of your Personally Identifiable Information under these
(e) Length of Retention: We keep your Personally Identifiable Information for as long as we need
it to fulfill the purposes for which we have collected it and for a reasonable period afterward.

3. Release of Information.

(a) Service Providers: We do not sell, trade, or rent your Personally Identifiable Information to
others. We do, however, use service providers and other third parties to provide our services to
you. We and our service providers use your Personally Identifiable Information to operate the
Site and to provide our services. The use of your Personally Identifiable Information by our

service partners is governed by the privacy policies of those service partners, and is not subject
to our control. 

(b) Administrative and Legal Reasons: We may disclose your Personally Identifiable Information
as needed to satisfy any law, regulation, and to protect the Site and our legal rights or property.
Occasionally we may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide
Personally Identifiable Information to the appropriate governmental authorities. We will disclose
Personally Identifiable Information upon receipt of a court order, subpoena, or to cooperate with
a law enforcement investigation. We fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in
identifying those who use the Site or our services for illegal activities. We reserve the right to
report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we in good faith believe to be unlawful.

4. User Choices on Collection, Use, and Processing of Information.

(c) “Do Not Track” Signals: Some browsers may be configured to send “Do Not Track” signals to
the websites that you visit. There is no consensus within the industry as to what “Do Not Track”
means in this context. Like many other websites, this Site does not alter its practices when it
receives a “Do Not Track” signal from a user’s browser.

(c) European Union Users: The General Data Protection Regulations (“GDPR”) grant those within
the European Union certain rights with regard to their Personally Identifiable Information. These

right to restrict processing; (e) the right to opt out of marketing; (f) the right to data portability;

(g) the right to object to processing; (h) rights in relation to automated decision making and
profiling; and (i) the right to withdraw consent. These rights are not absolute and they do not
always apply in all cases. If the GDPR applies to you, and you desire to exercise any of these
rights, please direct your request to:_____________. If you are not satisfied with our response,
the GDPR grants the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority in the European
Union (or EEA) state where a data subject works, normally lives, or where any alleged
infringement of data protection laws occurred.

5. Security of Information. We take reasonable steps to secure your Personally Identifiable
Information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be
guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personally Identifiable

limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity, and privacy of
any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this Site cannot be
guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party.

6. Cookies. When you use the Site we will store cookies on your computer in order to facilitate and
customize your use of the Site. A cookie is a small data text file, which a website stores on your
computer’s hard drive (if your web browser permits) that can later be retrieved to identify you to us.

information to recognize you as a previous visitor to the Site. The cookies make your use of the Site
easier, make the Site run more smoothly, and help us to maintain a secure Site. You are always free
to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but some parts of our Site may not work properly in
that case.

7. Third-Party Service Providers and Their Websites. Except as otherwise discussed in this Privacy
Policy, this policy only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. We
regularly work with third-party service providers to provide our services to you, including to process
your contributions and grant applications, including EveryAction and CharityProud. We may link to
the websites of such third-party service providers or otherwise make their services accessible or
