What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Your privacy is very important to us. At Down Syndrome Society of Wichita (DSSW), we have a few fundamental principles we follow:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, DSSW collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. DSSW’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how DSSW’s visitors use its website.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to the DSSW website choose to interact with DSSW in ways that require DSSW to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that DSSW gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who wish to receive DSSW updates via email, we collect their emails. DSSW collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitors interaction with DSSW. DSSW does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. DSSW uses cookies to help DSSW identify and track visitors, their usage of DSSW website, and their website access preferences. DSSW’s visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using DSSW’s website, with the drawback that certain features of DSSW’s website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, DSSW may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in DSSW’s sole discretion. DSSW encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
