Certain sections of the AWS web site use "cookies" to store user
information. A cookie is a small string of text that a web
site can send to your browser. A cookie cannot retrieve any
other data from your hard drive, pass on computer viruses, or
to enhance the user's visit; in general, cookies can securely store
a user's ID and password, personalize home pages and identify which
parts of a site have been visited. Cookies help us
understand which parts of our web sites are the most popular, where
our visitors are going and how long they spend there. We use
cookies to study traffic patterns on our site so we can make the
site even better. If you are just browsing ASIAN WOMEN'S
SHELTER's web site, a cookie identifies only your browser. It
is possible to set your browser to inform you when a cookie is
being placed - this way, you have the opportunity to decide whether
to accept the cookie. If you are just browsing our site and
are not a registered user, you do not have to accept a cookie and
you can still continue browsing the site. However, if you
become a registered user on our web site (with a user ID and
password), you must accept our site's cookies because they are
essential for site administration and security.
Like most standard website servers we use log files. This
helps us understand how people are using our site so we can make
the site even better. This includes internet protocol (IP)
addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP),
referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp and number of
clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's
movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information
for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally

securely store the data. Your donation record will just
contain a "SafeSave Vault ID" that uniquely identifies that
securely stored data. Your payment account data is not kept
on our computer, network or server.
