Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through The Doyle Foundation public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: The Doyle Foundation does not read any of your private online communications.

The Doyle Foundation encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from The Doyle Foundation so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information.

The Doyle Foundation Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on The Doyle Foundation or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of The Doyle Foundation; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of The Doyle Foundation, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The The Doyle Foundation Web site use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize The Doyle Foundation pages, or register with The Doyle Foundation site or services, a cookie helps The Doyle Foundation to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same The Doyle Foundation Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the The Doyle Foundation features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the The Doyle Foundation services or Web sites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

The Doyle Foundation secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. The Doyle Foundation secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Statement

The Doyle Foundation will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. The Doyle Foundation encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how The Doyle Foundation is protecting your information.
