The Center for Community Progress is committed to protecting your privacy and data. This policy describes the types of information we may collect from you and our practices for collecting, using, protecting, and disclosing that information.
This policy applies to information we collect on this website and in our email communications with you. This policy does not apply to information we may collect from you offline.
What information do you collect?
We collect several types of information from you, including information you provide to us and information we collect automatically.
We collect information that you provide to us when you fill out forms on this website, such as when you contact us, sign up for our newsletter, register for events, donate, apply for jobs, and respond to surveys. This information may include your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, organization name, and job title.
When you use our website or interact with our emails, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect information, including your Internet Protocol address, browser type, operating system, the date and time of your request, location data, and how you interacted with our email and website.
The technologies we use for this automatic data collection may include:
- Web Beacons. Pages on our website and our emails may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs) that permit Community Progress, for example, to count users who have visited those pages or opened an email and for other related website statistics (such as recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity).
We do not collect personal information automatically, but we may tie information we collect automatically to personal information about you that we collect from other sources, or you provide to us. This helps us to improve our website and audience services.
How do you use my information?
We use the information you provide us and information we collect from you, including any personal information, to provide any information or services you request from us, respond to your inquires, present our website and its content to you, and customize the communications and advertising you receive from us.
How do you protect my information?
We have implemented security measures designed to maintain the safety of your personal information. We engage the help of third-party providers who conform to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) standards for Data Privacy Process.
Do you disclose any information to third parties?
Community Progress does not sell, rent, or lease your email or other information we collect to third parties without your consent.
We may disclose your personal information to contractors, service providers, and other trusted third parties we use to operate our organization, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential and use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them.
We may also disclose your information when we believe disclosure is necessary to comply with the law, enforce our agreements, or protect our or others’ rights, property, or safety.
How do you protect the information of your online donors?
We do not sell, trade, otherwise transfer our donors’ personally identifiable information, including cardholder account numbers or card transaction information to any outside party. This policy applies to all information collected through our website’s “Donation” link.
To the extent any donations made through our website are processed through a third-party service provider, our donors’ information, including cardholder account numbers or card transaction information, will only be used for purposes necessary to process the donation.
How can I control how my information is collected and used?
