The Effective Date of this Website Privacy Statement (the “Statement”) is March 19, 2019

Read our Cookie Policy Here


Project Recover, Inc. (the “Organization” or “we”) is committed to protecting your privacy. We will never rent or sell your personally identifiable information to third parties for marketing purposes. We will never share your contact information with another user, without your consent. Any sensitive information that you provide will be secured with an industry-standard protocol and technology system.  In the limited situations provided in Section 4 of this Statement, we may disclose some user information to third parties. (Please see Section 4 for more details.)

This Statement sets forth our current privacy practices with regard to the information we collect when you or your computer interact with our Websites. By accessing one of our Websites, you acknowledge and fully understand this Statement and freely consent to the information collection and use practices described in this Statement.


 Related services and offerings with links from this Website, including Third-Party Sites, have their own privacy statements that can be viewed by clicking on the corresponding links within each respective Third-Party Site. Online merchants and others who participate in our services are encouraged to participate in industry privacy initiatives and to take a responsible attitude towards consumer privacy. However, since we do not have direct control over the policies or practices of participating merchants and other third parties, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or contents of Third-Party Sites. We recommend and encourage that you always review the privacy policies of merchants and other third parties before you provide any personal information or complete any transaction with such parties.


 We collect certain information from and about users in three main ways: (1) directly from our web server logs, (2) information obtained and stored with cookies and (3) information supplied by the user. Each way of obtaining information is described below.

a. Web Server Logs

 When you visit our Website, we may track information to administer the site and analyze its usage. Examples of information we may track include:

  • Your Internet protocol address.
  • The kind of browser or computer you use.
  • Number of links you click within the site.
  • State or country from which you accessed the site.
  • Date and time of your visit.
  • Name of your Internet service provider.
  • Web page you linked to our site from.
  • Pages you viewed on the site.

b. Use of Cookies

 We may use cookies to personalize or enhance our users’ experiences. A cookie is a small 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. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. Hence, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality.

 We reserve the right to share aggregated site statistics with partner companies, but do not allow other companies to place cookies on our Website unless there is a temporary, overriding customer value (such as merging into our Websites a site that relies on third-party cookies).

 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 reject cookies by changing your browser settings then be aware that this may disable some of the functionality on our Website.


Visitors to our Website can register to receive more information about Project Recover missions. When you register, we will request some personal information such as first and last name, address (home or other physical location), email address, telephone number, password to Project Recover website account, and other relevant information. If you are donating to Project Recover, we will request financial information including (1) name on credit card, (2) billing address for credit card, (3) credit card number and (4) credit card expiration date. Any financial information we collect is used only to collect your donation. If you donate by credit card, this information may be forwarded to your credit card provider through financial third parties that authorize credit card transactions. For other types of registrations, we will ask for the relevant information. You may also be asked to disclose personal information to us so that we can provide assistance and information to you. For example, such data may be warranted in order to provide online technical support and troubleshooting.

We will not disclose personally identifiable information we collect from you to third parties without your permission except as follows:

  • To protect and defend the rights or property of the Organization or users of the Websites, if we believe in good faith that disclosure of your information is necessary to do so;
  • To respond to legal process or comply with law; or
  • In connection with a merger, acquisition or liquidation of the Organization.


Our Websites may contain electronic images known as web beacons, sometimes also called single-pixel gifs, which allow us to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. We may include web beacons in promotional email messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. Some of these web beacons may be placed by third-party service providers to help determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or email communications. These web beacons may be used by these service providers to place a persistent cookie on your computer. This allows the service provider to recognize your computer each time you visit certain pages or emails and compile anonymous information in relation to those page views, which in turn enables us and our service providers to learn which advertisements and emails bring you to our Website and how you use the site.


We will provide you with the means to ensure that personally identifiable information in your web account file is correct and current. You may review this information by contacting us by sending an email to our support attendant at .


The California Online Privacy Protection Act (“CalOPPA”) is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy.  The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or organization in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personal identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared.

According to CALOPPA, We agree to the following:

  • Users can visit our site anonymously.
  • Our privacy policy is accessible by a link on our home page. 
  • Our Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy’ and can easily be found on the page(s) specified above.


We recognize that protecting the privacy of young children is especially important.  The Organization does not knowingly market to, collect, or solicit any information from anyone under the age of 13.  The Service and its content are not directed at children under the age of 13. We endeavor to obtain a parent or legal guardian’s consent before collecting, using, or disclosing personal information about children.  In the event that we learn we have inadvertently collected personal information from children under the age of 13 without parental consent, we will immediately delete that information.


The CAN SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

We collect your email address in order to:

  • Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.
  • Market to our mailing list or continue to send emails to our donors.

  • Monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used.

Your continued use of our Websites constitutes your agreement to this Statement and any updates to it.
