You can visit most portions of CAC’s website without telling us who you are and without revealing any personal information. The only information we collect from a normal web site visit is the numerical Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using, the browser software you use and your operating system, the date and time you access our site, the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our site, and any search terms used to find our site. We use this information to generate statistics and measure site activity to improve the usefulness of the site to our visitors. We collect this information on an aggregate basis only. This information is used for internal review only and not shared with third parties, other than the service that generates the statistics. We do not collect any other information without the visitor’s knowledge and permission. During a normal web site visit, we do not collect or store personally identifiable information such as name, mailing address, email address, phone number or social security of the visitor.
There are instances where CAC requests personally identifiable information to provide you with services or correspondence. This information, such as name, mailing address, email address, type of request and possibly additional information, is collected and stored in a manner appropriate to the nature of the data by CAC and is used to fulfill your request. CAC may collect credit card information for billing purposes. We do not use or share credit card information for any other purposes. CAC makes every effort to insure the secure collection and transmission of sensitive user information. We do this using industry accepted data collection and encryption methodologies such as SSL (Secure Sockets Layer; look for the “locked” icon in the bottom right hand corner of the screen and/or for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page). Procedures for opting out are listed below. At this time, CAC does not sell, rent or exchange e-mail addresses to partners. CAC, likewise, does not disclose any financial information to partners, except where required in order for them to process online donations. If we are required by law to disclose any information that you have submitted, we will attempt to provide you with notice (unless we are prohibited) that a request for your information has been made in order to give you an opportunity to object to the disclosure. We will attempt to provide this notice by email, if you have given us an email address, or by postal mail if you have entered a postal address. We will independently object to overly broad requests for access to information about users of our site. If you do not challenge the disclosure request, we may be legally required to turn over your information. Our site uses web forms for users to purchase products and services, or to make donations. We collect visitors’ contact information (like their email address) and information on the referring website, if applicable. Contact information from the web form is used to send orders and information about our organization to our users. The user’s contact information is also used to get in touch with you when necessary. Users may opt out of receiving future mailings.
Persons who donate to CAC, whether via regular postal mail, over the phone or through the Web site, will receive periodic updates from CAC.
