If any visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string, to help spam detection. If you leave comments on the site, an anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here:


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract location data from images on the website.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These cookies are installed for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies are set to last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser. When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. These other websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Why we collect some personal data

Certain sections of this website (such as application forms and inquiry forms) may contain sensitive personal data, such as data concerning health. Personal data is not just created by a user’s direct interactions with our website. Personal data is also generated from technical processes such as contact forms, comments, cookies, analytics, and third party embeds. This data is collected for the sole purpose of aiding Andrus in helping children and families we work with to take maximum advantage of our services and offerings. By completing (or partially filling out) and submitting such a form, you are active consenting to have Andrus collect and forward that data to the appropriate parties to respond to your application(s) or inquiries.

Who we share your data with

For users that register on our website (if any), if you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service, such as Akismet or a similar WordPress plug-in service.
