Note to Parents and Children
Good Neighbors USA is concerned about the protection of online privacy for all our website users. We are particularly respectful of the privacy of our young users. We encourage parents to monitor their children’s use of the Internet and to help us protect their privacy by instructing them never to provide personal information on this website or any other without permission. We will never attempt to extract unnecessary information from you, regardless of age.
Good Neighbors USA welcomes children to learn more about our organization and, where appropriate, participate in our volunteer activities. However, we encourage this to be done only with their parents’ knowledge and supervision.
Good Neighbors USA does not knowingly solicit data from children, nor do we knowingly market to children.

Links to other websites:
In order to provide a more comprehensive, interactive, and educational site, this site contains links to other websites. We do our best to carefully choose those sites with which we link, but cannot take responsibility for the practices or content of these sites. We encourage you to review the privacy policies posted on any sites you may visit before providing personal information.
We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect against unauthorized disclosure, use, alteration or destruction of the personal information in our possession. When you provide credit card information to make a donation, we use the industry standard for Internet security – Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology – to help protect the information you provide. This internet encryption standard scrambles data as it travels from your computer to our server. Please note, however, that perfect security does not exist on the Internet. You’ll know that you’re in a secure area of our Web site when a “lock” icon appears on your screen and the “http” portion of our URL address changes to “https.” The “s” stands for “secure.”
Any changes to this policy will be posted prior to their implementation.
