Online Information Gathering
Information collected online is often defined as being either anonymous or personally identifiable:
• Anonymous information cannot be tied back to a specific individual
• Personally identifiable information lets us know the specifics of who you are, such as your name, e-mail address, or postal address
The choice of how much of your personally identifiable information you choose to disclose to The Center for Healthy Families is left completely up to you.
The only way we know something about you personally is if you voluntarily provide us with your personal information, such as when you communicate on the website by sending us an e-mail, filling out a referral form, or posting to any discussion board or other forum.
Collection of IP addresses: When visiting any Internet website, your unique address, called an "IP address," is recorded. The Center for Healthy Families does not release any information about the collection of this address to any third party except under a court order. The Center for Healthy Families archives the log files in order to create aggregate statistical reports, detect errors on the website, and for security reasons. The log files are eventually deleted. Information collected from user orders or requests is deleted after a few months.
Collection of personal information: On certain pages on our website, such as in the referral form for The Center for Healthy Families, we give you the option of providing us with names, addresses, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, demographic, and other personal and financial information. This personal information is not gathered by us without your knowing and active permission and participation.
If users tell us that they do not wish to have this information used as a basis for further contact, we will respect those wishes. We do keep track of the domains from which people visit us. We analyze this data for trends, insights, and statistics. Information may be maintained for receipt of communication and information from The Center for Healthy Families.
The Center for Healthy Families takes precautions to keep the user information disclosed to us secure, and such information will not be disclosed to third parties for commercial purposes. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. The Center for Healthy Families uses SSL encryption for all financial transactions to protect personal information.
If you provide an email address or other personal information (excluding financial information) when you visit our site, we may enter such information into one of our databases so we can contact you to ask for your input, provide information about our programs and events, and request donations.
The Center for Healthy Families' website generally stores no information about its visitors, with the exceptions of basic logging for website stats (machine addresses, not e-mail addresses) and information provided by users who fill out our online forms. The Center for Healthy Families does compile statistics that show the daily number of visitors to our website and its subdirectories, the daily requests we receive for particular files, and what server locations, including countries, those requests come from. These aggregated statistics are used internally to better provide services to the public and may also be provided to others, but again, do not include personal information.
We will never intentionally disclose any personal information collected from you on our website to any third party without having before, during, or afterward received your permission. In other words, without such permission, we will not sell, rent, loan or give personally identifiable user information collected from you on our website to marketers or any other third parties.
The one exception is that, although unlikely, The Center for Healthy Families may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide personally identifiable information to the appropriate governmental authorities. In these cases, we will provide this information as and to the extent we have determined that the disclosure of any such information is appropriate.
