ABCH operates alabamachild.org. It is ABCH’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, ABCH 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. ABCH’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how ABCH’s visitors use its website. From time to time, ABCH may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to ABCH’s website choose to interact with ABCH in ways that require ABCH to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that ABCH gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with ABCH are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, ABCH collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with ABCH. ABCH 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

ABCH may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, ABCH may monitor the most popular pages on alabamachild.org and may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, ABCH does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

ABCH 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 ABCH’s behalf or to provide services available at ABCH’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. ABCH 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, ABCH discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when ABCH believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of ABCH, third parties or the public at large. ABCH takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. ABCH uses cookies to help ABCH identify and track visitors, their usage of ABCH website, and their website access preferences. ABCH visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using ABCH’s website, with the drawback that certain features of ABCH’s website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If ABCH, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that ABCH goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of ABCH may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, ABCH may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in ABCH’s sole discretion. ABCH encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
