We respect and are committed to protecting your privacy. That is why we have adopted this Privacy Policy.

The following policies are only in effect for the Dover Children’s Home Web page. The following discloses our Privacy Policy.

What information are you collecting and how are you collecting it?

Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers that serve as that computer’s “Internet Protocol” IP address. When a visitor requests a page from any Website within the Dover Children’s Home website, our Web servers automatically recognize that visitor’s domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of the Dover Children’s Home website, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement.

Will you disclose the information you collect to outside third parties?

We do not collect and evaluate this information. Our Web servers do not automatically record e-mail addresses of the visitors.

What are cookies?

From time to time, Dover Children’s Home may send a “cookie” to your computer. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your Internet browser from a Web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. A cookie can’t read data off of your computer hard disk or read cookie files created by other websites. Cookies do not damage your system. We use cookies to identify which areas of DCH’s network you have visited or customized so, the next time you visit, those pages may be readily accessible.

You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings of your Internet browser. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or allow your browser to show you when a cookie is being sent. If you choose not to accept these cookies, your experience at our site and other websites may be diminished and some features may not work as intended.

How do you use single-pixel gifs?

The  Dover Children’s Home website contains hyperlinks to third party websites.  The Dover Children’s Home website also contains advertisements of third parties.
