Our Policy also describes the measures we take to protect the security of the information you provide when using this website. In addition, we describe the choices you can make about how we use the information you provide to us through this website.

What types of information does Project DIVA International collect about me from my use of this website and how does Project Diva International use the information?

We collect and use information about you to communicate with you about our services,  programs, and events, and to customize our communications in those areas.

If you are under 13 years old, we ask you to have your parent or guardian enroll you. Younger visitors should always check with their parents or guardians before entering information on any website or mobile application and we encourage families to discuss their household guidelines regarding the online sharing of personal information. If the Site either is directed to children under 13 or has actual knowledge that a user is under 13 years old, the child may be asked to provide his or her parent's or guardian's email address.

  • Cookies. Like many organizations, we use cookies and log files on our website. Cookies are small text files that websites often store on the computer hard drives of visitors to their sites.

We also may disclose information about you to other members and volunteers of Project DIVA International or to sponsorship partners solely with respect to tracking and enhancing campaigns in furtherance of our mission and as required by law.
