Information Collected and How It May Be Used
When you access and use this website, there are three ways we may collect information about you:
1. Information Sent to Us by Your Web Browser
CCEFS collects information that is sent to us automatically by your web browser. This information typically includes the IP address of your Internet service provider, the name of your operating system (such as Macintosh® or Windows ®) and the name and version of your browser (such as Internet Explorer®). The information we receive depends upon the settings on your web browser. Please check your browser if you want to learn what information your browser sends or how to change your settings. The information provided by your browser does not identify you personally. We use this information to create statistics that help us to improve our site and make it more compatible with the technology use by our internet visitors.
2. Information Collected By Placing a “Cookie” On Your Computer
CCEFS may obtain information about you by installing a “tag” on your computer’s hard drive. This tag is known as a “cookie.”
The CCEFS website uses “session cookies.” A session cookie is used to tag your computer with a computer-generated, unique identifier when you access our site. A session cookie does not identify you personally and expires after you close your browser. We use session cookies to collect statistical information about the ways visitors use our sites – which pages they visit, which links they use, and how long they stay on each page. We analyze this information (known as “click stream data”) in statistical form to better understand our visitors’ interests and needs in order to improve the content and functionality of our site.
If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer. Although you are not required to accept cookies when you visit this website, you may be unable to use all of the functionality of the site if your browser rejects our cookies.
3. Information You Knowingly and Voluntarily Provide
CCEFS collects the information you knowingly and voluntarily provide when you use this website, for example, the information you provide when you sign up to be a volunteer or if you sign up to participate in a special event such as the Thanksgiving Food Distribution or other special events listed on the website. In most cases this information will be personal information.
CCEFS uses this information for the purposes for which you provide it. For example, if you provide your e-mail address or phone number when you sign up to volunteer, we may use your e-mail address or phone number to contact you about volunteer opportunities.
We may also use the information we collect on the website for various business purposes such as customer service, market research, and improving our services. We may also remove all the personally identifiable information and use the rest for historical or statistical purposes.
Sharing Personal Information
CCEFS will not sell to or share with third parties personal information collected from this website. CCEFS may share your personal information with third parties CCEFS hires to perform support services. If we do so, your personal information will be used in a manner consistent with the purposes for which it was originally collected (or to which you subsequently consented). These third parties are required to use the personal information we share with them only to perform services on our behalf and to treat your personal information as strictly confidential.
Security of Personal Information
Your personal information will generally be stored in databases maintained by our service providers. These databases are stored on servers located in the United States.
CCEFS maintains reasonable safeguards to protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of your personal information. Although we use security measures to help protect your personal information against unauthorized disclosure, misuse or alteration, as is the case with all computer networks linked to the Internet, we cannot guarantee the security of information provided over the Internet and will not be responsible for breaches of security beyond our reasonable control.
