Chicago Foundation for Women knows that you care how information about you is used and shared.
Collection of information
First, we do not collect personally identifying information about you (such as name, address, e-mail address, telephone numbers and/or credit/debit card information) when you visit our site, unless you choose to voluntarily provide such information to us. The information you willingly provide is retained and used in accordance with existing laws, rules, regulations, and other policies.
You can visit our site without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself. If you choose not to provide personally-identifying information, we may not be able to fulfill a request that you make or otherwise assist you.
Purpose of information collection
Personal information that you choose to disclose is collected on an individual basis for various purposes, such as registering to receive e-mail newsletters or other materials, requesting further information from us about projects and services, donating to us, making requests, submitting a form on our website, or simply asking a question. We ask for this information so that we can process your request, register you for an event, return a message, etc.
The way we use information collected
When you supply information about yourself for a specific purpose, we use the information for only that purpose (such as to provide the service or information you have requested). For example, you may be asked to give us individual information to receive information, to make a donation, or to register for an event. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.
Sharing of information
Except as might be required by law, we will never share any information we receive from you, including your e-mail address, with any outside parties. We do not sell, rent, trade, or give away, e-mail addresses.
Anonymous information is collected for every visitor to this site. This includes pages viewed, date and time, and browser type. IP numbers are not stored but are temporarily used to determine domain type and in some cases, geographic region. We do not make any association between this information and a visitor’s identity.
When you visit our website, our servers make a log of basic information corresponding to the sites and pages you have visited. This information is stored primarily to track the effectiveness of our website and individual sections and pages within them.
