Please note that this privacy policy applies only to the web pages, tools, and content owned and operated by StayTeen.org at this website, and does not apply to any information collected outside the website.

About Us. StayTeen.org is owned and operated by Power to Decide, the campaign to prevent unplanned pregnancy ("Power to Decide"). Power to Decide is a non-profit organization committed to ensuring that every young person has the power to decide if, when, and under what circumstances to get pregnant—increasing their opportunity to pursue the future they want. StayTeen.org is a vital part of this mission. Through this website, Power to Decide is able to reach teenagers by offering research, resources, and information about teen pregnancy and how to prevent it.

What Information Is Collected. In general, you can visit this website without revealing your identity or providing any personal information. If, however, you decide to participate in certain activities, we may ask for your name, age, email, and other information related to the activity. StayTeen.org is not directed to children under the age of 13 and does not knowingly collect any information from children under the age of 13. Should we learn that a child under the age of 13 has provided personal information to us, we will delete it from our database.

How Information Is Collected. We collect personally identifiable information from you when you voluntarily submit it. We do not use cookies or other internal tracking mechanisms to collect any personal information about you. Our web server keeps a record of network transactions in the form of log files, which are destroyed after they are 30 days old. We do not sell or rent your personal information to anyone. Moreover, we do not share or otherwise disclose your personal information to outside parties other than third-party site administrators (for operational and maintenance purposes only). Access to your information is limited to those Power to Decide employees, such as administrators, who need it for administrative and programming purposes.

How Information is Protected. We take reasonable measures to protect the privacy, accuracy, and reliability of any personal information you choose to provide to us and to protect such information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. We also safeguard your personal information by limiting the number of employees who may access such information and by permitting access to it only for administrative and programming purposes. Please note that while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you choose to transmit through the use of StayTeen.org. We are not responsible for any breach of security or for any actions of any third parties that inadvertently receive your personal information.

How To Update Information or End Participation. You will always have the opportunity to update your information. If you have submitted personal information through StayTeen.org and you would like to access that information, you may send an email to admin@stayteen.org. We will use reasonable efforts to supply you with this information and correct any factual inaccuracies that you identify. You can let us know at any time if you wish to end your participation in StayTeen.org activities by emailing us at admin@stayteen.org. Within a reasonable time of your giving this notice, your information will become inactive in our database, and it will no longer be viewed, accessed, or used by Power to Decide employees. If, however, you decide to participate again in any StayTeen.org activities, we reserve the right to access your prior information at the time of renewed contact or participation.
