If you block cookies, however, you may lose some website functionality.

How we use your Information

Autism Empowerment will not sell, trade, or share personal information about our financial donors with anyone else, nor will we send mailings to our financial donors on behalf of other organizations, unless a donor has given us specific permission to do so. The exception to this case is where sponsors or donors have given us permission to use their name or logo on our website or in other promotional materials to thank them.If you provide Autism Empowerment with personal information when you visit our website, we may use the information in our programs and activities. We may enter your name into one of our databases so we can contact you to obtain your input, provide information about our programs and events or request contributions.

On occasion, Autism Empowerment may share information about you with vendors and service providers that assist us with our activities and programs. These vendors and service providers help us with functions such as fulfilling orders, managing data and processing donations. In addition, we make disclosures as required by law.

Note to Parents on our Privacy Policy

Autism Empowerment welcomes children to learn more about our organization and where appropriate, find opportunities to serve their communities through volunteer activities. However, we encourage children to do this only with their parents’ knowledge and supervision.

We will not knowingly market to or collect personally identifiable information from children under age 13. (An exception may be if a child under 13 signs up to volunteer for a service project with parental permission. Parents are encouraged to register on behalf of their children.)
