Privacy Policy

We Care About Your Privacy
Commonwealth Autism respects the privacy of our online visitors and donors. Any personal information you provide is voluntary. We do not require that you register in order to view our site. There are times, such as when you donate online or register for our electronic mailing list, when we will collect specific information, such as your name, mailing address, zip code, and email address. If you provide an address or email address you may receive communications from us – by mail or electronically – regarding Commonwealth Autism events, news about autism-related topics, and support opportunities.

Security of the Information You Provide Us

Our donation page is powered by PayPal, one of the industry leaders in the use of encryption. For more on their security policies, visit their website. If you are uncomfortable donating online, you may also contribute by calling our office at 804-355-0300.

Terms and Conditions

Links to Other Sites

To provide visitors with additional information and resources about autism and the field of developmental disabilities, our web site contains numerous links to sites developed by other companies and organizations. Please be aware that other sites’ privacy policies may differ from Commonwealth Autism’s and that we have no influence over third-party privacy policies.

Notice to Children Younger than Age 13

Do not send any information about yourself to us, such as your name, address or email address. We do not knowingly collect personal identifiable information from children younger than 13. In the event that we learn we have collected any personal information from a child without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information from our database as quickly as possible.
