INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We collect two specific types of information related to you:
- Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”);
- Non-Personally Identifiable Information (“Non-PII”).
(a) Personally Identifiable Information: PII is inclusive any information which identifies you as an individual. We collect your PII when you sign on and register with us or when you choose to participate in an interactive feature of our Sites such as a review, survey or promotion. You may:
- provide your name, mail/shipping address, email address, credit card number and phone number when registering with our Sites or in connection with a contest entry;
- provide relevant demographic information about you (e.g., age, gender, shopping interests and preferences, etc.) when participating in a survey or poll;
- post a general comment and/or recommendation on our Sites.
(b) Non-Personally Identifiable Information: We gather specific non-PII from you when you access our Sites including IP addresses and information relating to your browser, operating system, ISP, the third party website of your visit and how you use our Sites pertaining to the web pages you visit, as well as the length of your visits.
HOW WE USE & SHARE THE INFORMATION
PII and Non-PII is used to improve your usage to our Sites and Services so that we can better serve you by carrying out your requests, respond to your inquiries, understand your needs, and by any other means which is naturally associated with the circumstances in which you provided the information.
We may disclose PII and Non-PII to:
- Our third party service providers;
- Our parent company, subsidiaries or other affiliated companies (“affiliated companies”) for operational, marketing and promotional purposes;
- Co-promotional participating partners and others with whom we have marketing or other relationships;
- Our other users where you choose to publicly post reviews, comments or other information involving products or services, communicate with various users by the use of public forums.
Furthermore, we use non-PII to help evaluate site traffic, understand customer needs and interests, and carry out targeted promotional activities (see “Preference Based Advertising” below). We may use your non-PII by itself or combine it with information we have collected from others to generate research analysis and other information and data about online shopping for participating merchants and other customers, as well as media and other interested parties.
SECURITY OF INFORMATION
At cenfound.org we strive to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which allows us to encrypt the information you input. We also use a secure and stable server hosting location in the US, firewall protection, controlled access and encryption technology to protect your data. It should be advised, however, that while our goal is to protect your PII, we cannot fully guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and are not liable for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your PII. In the adverse event that any of your personally identifiable information is compromised, we will contact you via e-mail at the last e-mail address you have provided us as soon as possible under the circumstances (delays in notification may occur while we take the necessary steps to determine the scope of the breach and restore reasonable integrity to the system, as well as for the legitimate needs of law enforcement if notification would impede a criminal investigation.)
