Website Visitors Policy

This web site is owned and operated by or on behalf of Boys Town, Father Flanagan's Boys' Home. We recognize that visitors to our sites may be concerned about the information they provide to us, and how we treat that information. This Visitors Policy provides some information concerning visits to our web sites. This policy may be changed or updated from time to time, without notice and at the sole discretion of Boys Town. This policy is applicable to all web sites owned and operated by Boys Town.

Data on site visitors and visits may be collected via DoubleClick, Google Analytics, Yahoo!, Eyereturn or another similar service. The information collected is intended to help determine our audience’s demographics and interests so that we can more accurately deliver our messages to those individuals that will be most interested in seeing them.

Additionally, our web server automatically recognizes a visitor’s domain name and browser. We collect the domain name of visitors to our web sites, the e-mail addresses of those who communicate with us via e-mail, information on what pages consumers access and information volunteered by the consumer, such as survey answers, event registrations and employment application information.

The information we collect is used to improve the content of our web sites, used to notify consumers about updates to our web sites, used by us to contact consumers for marketing purposes and employment purposes.

Boys Town employs a number of safeguards for all data that enters the local network from the Internet. Examples of these practices include use of firewall, e-mail filtering and a public key infrastructure to enforce perimeter security, use of anti-malware software, workstation and server disk encryption, file level and share level document security, and control of physical access to data centers. Boys Town also has a three prong approach to data protection. All data is backed up to disk, then replicated to a secondary data center, and also written to tape and stored in a third secured location.

Data transmissions from visitors that involve financial transactions are secured using the certificate-based https protocol.
