Collection of Personal Information
The Mind Trust collects and stores varying types of information about you depending on your activities when visiting the Site. However, The Mind Trust will collect no personally identifiable information about you when you visit the Site unless you voluntarily choose to provide that information (for example, by sending us an e-mail or by completing an online application for the Education Entrepreneur Fellowship).
Voluntarily Identifying Yourself. If you choose to identify yourself by sending an e-mail, for example, the Site will collect and store personally identifiable information. Personally identifiable information may include your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address. Any personal information you provide is submitted at your discretion. However, some uses of this Site may be limited should you decide not to disclose such personal information (for example, requesting additional information about The Mind Trust's programs or activities by way of e-mail).
This Site uses standard Internet "cookie" technology. A cookie is a bit of information that is stored on a visitor's hard drive that allows the Site to track how a visitor navigates through the Site and areas in which a visitor shows interest. This is similar to a traffic report: it tracks trends and behaviors, but does not personally identify individuals. With most Internet browsers or other software, you can erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions. If you reject cookies, your use of our Site may be limited.

We generally will retain your personal information for five (5) years following your last visit to the Site or until such time as we no longer have a use for it.
Linking to Third Party Web Sites
The Mind Trust has policies and procedures in place to protect the privacy and confidentiality of your personal information that is collected and maintained. We have implemented security measures for all information systems under The Mind Trust's control so that, to the extent possible, information will not be lost, misused, or altered.
