At the Alaska Network on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (ANDVSA), your privacy is very important to us. The purpose of this privacy policy is to provide you with a description of the types of information we collect about you when you visit our website:
Computer Safety
If you believe your computer or cell phone may be being monitored, there is a “safe exit” button at the top of our webpage. Please remember, it is not possible to clear all your history or online footprints and sometimes deleting history is not in your best interest if someone is monitoring your computer activity. If you are concerned that you may be being monitored, you may want to use a safe computer through a trusted friends’ home, a local library, or an internet café.
ANDVSA Privacy Statement
ANDVSA provides digital services, primarily to membership and as a tool to share resources with Alaskans. ANDVSA does not work directly with clients to provide advocacy or emergency shelter, for a list or programs with telephone hotlines in the state, please click here.
Email and text messaging are not the safest or most confidential ways to talk to someone about abuse in your life. Each of our member programs can be reached through the telephone and their phone numbers are listed here.
At ANDVSA we define our digital services as comments through ANDVSA’s YouTube page, Stand Up Speak Up Alaska’s YouTube page, Stand Up Speak Up Alaska’s Instagram, Alaska Men Choose Respect on Twitter, ANDVSA’s Facebook page and the Lead On! Facebook page. We also provide services through the “contact us” portion of our website. Finally, ANDVSA provides online services through our webinars for members and partners, our online course and intranet (for program directors and advocates).
If at any time, you feel that you safety or privacy may be compromised due their use of these services, please call ANDVSA. You may also contact us to let us know if you see any offensive or inappropriate comments through our social media accounts. 907-586-3650 many of our trainings and resources are available in print and through audio recordings and we are happy to provide non-digital resources upon request.
