Privacy Promise

12S Program (“12S Program”) operates 12-step-program.org/ and may operate other websites. It is 12S Program’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, 12S Program collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. 12S Program’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how 12S Program’s visitors use its website. From time to time, 12S Program may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

12S Program also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on 12-step-program.org/ blogs/sites. 12S Program only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to 12S Program’s websites choose to interact with 12S Program in ways that require 12S Program to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that 12S Program gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at 12-step-program.org/ to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with 12S Program are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, 12S Program collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with 12S Program. 12S Program does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

12S Program may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. 12S Program may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, 12S Program does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

12S Program discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on 12S Program’s behalf or to provide services available at 12S Program’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using 12S Program’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. 12S Program will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, 12S Program discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when 12S Program believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of 12S Program, third parties or the public at large.

If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. 12S Program takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
