Non-personal information is aggregated information, demographic information, IP addresses and any other information that does not reveal your specific identity.

By submitting your Personal Information through this web site, you give your consent to CRF-OC’s collection, use, and disclosure of such information as described in this Privacy Policy. We will use your Personal Information to fulfill your request or other purpose for which you provided it. From time to time we may use personal information to send to you important information regarding the Site, or changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information may be important to your use of the Site, you may not opt-out of receiving such communications. We may use personal information for our internal business purposes, such as data analysis and audits. In addition, we may also use personal information to enhance our information and to aid us in providing our customers with targeted promotions. We may also use it for such purposes as sending you, either electronically or through the U.S. mail, information about our programs, services, and upcoming events as well as other materials that we think may be of interest to you. At any time, you may request that we discontinue sending you these communications by contacting us.

CRF-OC does not sell, trade, transfer, lease, or rent any Personal Information to any third party except as authorized by you or as disclosed in this Privacy Policy. To provide services to you, we may share your Personal Information with third parties, such as those who facilitate activities on this web site or our programs. For example, we may share your Personal Information with service providers that coordinate our mailings and email newsletters. We may also share your information with volunteers who provide services at the seminar or clinic for which you have registered. We will not sell or rent your Personal Information to third parties for marketing purposes and will require our service providers not to use your Personal Information for marketing purposes without your consent.

CRF-OC reserves the right to disclose your Personal Information to respond to a subpoena, court, search warrant, or other legal process, to defend CRF-OC against legal claims, or for other reasons that we determine in good faith are necessary or appropriate. CRF-OC may transfer Personal Information to its successors or assigns, if permitted by and done in accordance with applicable law.

To provide us with updates in your Personal Information, to modify your preferences regarding supplying your information to third parties, to be removed from mailing lists, or to have your Personal Information removed from our database, contact us with your information or request.

At any time, you can contact us if you need to correct your information or want to be removed from any of our lists.

Cookies and other Non-Personal Information

When you visit the Site, we may collect non-personal information, such as a catalog of the Site pages you visit. Non-personal information is generally collected through the Site from the following sources: server log files, environmental variables, cookies, pixel tags and other similar technologies and information that you voluntarily provide. Your Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). This number is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever you visit the Site, along with the time(s) of your visit(s) and the page(s) that you visited. We use your IP address, and the IP addresses of all users, for purposes such as calculating Site usage levels, helping diagnose problems with the Site’s servers, and administering the Site. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice on the Internet and is done automatically by many websites. We and our service providers may also collect certain environmental variables, such as computer type (Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, OS version, Internet browser, and Internet browser version. These environmental variables are collected by most browsers, and can be used to optimize your experience on the Site.
We, our service providers, and/or non-affiliated Third-parties, may use “cookies” or similar technologies on the Site. Cookies are data that a web server transfers to an individual’s computer for recordkeeping purposes. Cookies are an industry standard used by many websites, and can facilitate your ongoing access to and use of a particular website; cookies do not cause damage to your computer systems or files. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to automatically decline cookies, or to be given the choice of declining or accepting the transfer of a particular cookie, or cookies from a particular website, to your computer. Additionally, please see the “Your Choices” section below for instructions on how to opt-out of sharing certain information related to the use of cookies. We, our service providers, and/or non-affiliated Third-parties, may also use so-called “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs” or similar means (collectively, “Pixel Tags”) in connection with some Site pages and HTML-formatted e-mail messages to, among other things, compile aggregate statistics about Site usage and response rates. A Pixel Tag is an electronic image, often a single pixel (1×1), that is ordinarily not visible to Site visitors and may be associated with Cookies on the visitors’ hard drives. Pixel Tags allow us to count users who have visited certain pages of the Site, to deliver branded services, to provide online advertising, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted e-mail messages, Pixel Tags can tell the sender whether and when the e-mail has been opened.

Information That You Voluntarily Provide

We also collect non-personal information (e.g., your geographic location, etc.) when you voluntarily provide such information to us. When such information is not combined with any personal information, such information is considered to be non-personal information, as it does not personally identify you or any other user. Additionally, we may aggregate personal information in a manner such that the end-product does not personally identify you or any other user of the Site, for example, by using personal information to calculate the percentage of our users who have a particular telephone area code. Such aggregate information is considered non-personal information for purposes of this Policy. Please note that if we combine any non-personal information with personal information, the combined information will be treated by us as personal information as long as it is so combined.

Links

CRF-OC’s web site contains links to other sites. There is a possibility that those sites may use cookies to collect a visitor’s personal information. We cannot control the use of cookies by sites linked to our site and we are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of other sites.

Use of Non-personal Information

We may share aggregated information (i.e., information about you and other customers collectively, but not specifically identifiable to you) and other non-personal, de-identified, or anonymous information we collect with third parties, including affiliates to develop and deliver targeted advertising on our Site and on the websites of third parties. If you would prefer that we do not utilize cookies with your website experience, or would prefer to restrict the use of cookies with network advertising partners, please see the “Your Choices” section below.

Cookies

Subject to the section above pertaining to cookies and similar technologies, you have the ability to prohibit being served an advertisement based on cookie technology. We utilize reputable third-party vendors to serve advertisements. If, however, you are not comfortable with cookies, you can adjust the settings within your browser to further prohibit being served a cookie. Please see the browser’s instructions to perform this task. Additionally, the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) has developed an opt-out tool with the express purpose of allowing consumers to “opt-out” of the targeted advertising delivered by its member networks. We may share anonymous or de-identified information with such member networks for the purposes of delivering targeted advertising; however, you may visit the DAA opt-out page and opt-out of this cookie tracking if you do not wish to receive targeted advertising.

Changing information

Corrections or updates to your information including your email address, phone number, mailing address, credit card information or password reminder phrase can be made by contacting us. For your protection, our customer care representatives may request supporting documents before making any changes or updates to your information.

We will endeavor to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable. Please note that if you opt-out as described above, we will not be able to remove personal information about you from the databases of third parties with which we have already disclosed personal information as of the date that we implement your opt-out request. If you wish to cease receiving marketing-related e-mails from third parties, please contact such third parties directly or utilize any opt-out mechanisms set forth in their respective privacy policies or marketing-related emails.

Security

We have security measures and tools, such as firewalls, in place to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or data storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), please notify us of the problem as soon as possible by contacting us in accordance with the Section “Contacting Us” below (note that if you choose to notify us via physical mail, this will delay the time it takes for us to respond to the problem)
