What personally identifiable information is collected about visitors to www.cfy.org?
“Personally identifiable information” is non-anonymous information such as your name, phone number, credit card information, address or email address or anything that could identify you personally. Visitors to www.cfy.org are not required to provide personally identifiable information to use the Website.
There are three instances in which CFY may receive your name, email address, or other information that identifies you personally.
The first is if you contact CFY, for example, to request information. Clicking on a website link in order to contact our organization may result in your email application sending us a query. Such a query would contain your email address and could contain your name.
What we do and do not do with information we collect:
We do not rent, sell or distribute your personally identifying information to other companies or individuals, unless we have your consent. We may share such information in any of the following limited circumstances:
- We have your consent.
- We conclude that we are required by law or have a good faith belief that access, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of CFY, its program participants, website users or the public.
We may share aggregated information with others. Examples of this include the number of users who searched for certain items on our website or how many users clicked on a particular page of our website.
CFY and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”)?
It is the policy of CFY to collect through our website NO personally identifiable information from children under the age of 14 years, unless we have received parental consent in connection with such collection of information. All individuals are therefore required to be 14 years or older to submit their email address at our website, or obtain parental consent with respect to the furnishing of that information to us.
What anonymous information is collected about visitors to www.cfy.org?
“Anonymous Information” means information that cannot be traced back to you as a specific individual. CFY receives standard web log information: cookies, referrer IDs, IP addresses and system information. None of this information identifies you personally. It is anonymous and will never be combined or linked to any Personally identifiable information.
What is a cookie?
As of October 2007, the CFY Website employs cookies only to aid in navigation of the site, such as remembering the current page you are viewing.
What is a referrer ID?
A “referrer ID” is information from your web browser which shows us what URL you linked from. This allows us to see what websites link to www.cfy.org.This information is automatically gathered by our server. Referrer IDs contain no information that identifies you personally.
What is an IP address?
IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer so that data (such as the web pages you request) can be sent to you. They are automatically gathered by our web server when you visit www.cfy.org. CFY will not use your IP address to attempt to identify your personal information.
What is system information?
System information we gather from our web logs includes time of your visit, type of browser you used, and the operating system, platform and CPU speed of your computer. This kind of anonymous information is routinely sent by your browser when you connect to websites. CFY uses this information only for broad demographic statistics. For example: it tells us what percentage of users have Netscape browsers versus Internet Explorer. You will not be personally identified by this information.
Will I receive unsolicited commercial email (“spam”) as a result of visiting the Website of CFY?
