How Caring Cross Responds to Do Not Track Signals
How Caring Cross Protects and Uses Personal Information
Caring Cross works to protect the security of Personal Information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts the information that is transmitted on the Site. Information is stored with an AES-256 encryption. Caring Cross uses the Personal Information of a User to market its services and events, collect donations, process memberships and communicate with members, and to respond to customer service or support questions. Caring Cross may employ companies and individuals to perform functions on Caring Cross’s behalf. Examples may include providing marketing assistance, performing statistical analysis, providing customer service and processing payments. These companies and individuals will have access to the Personal Information only as necessary to perform their functions, and may not access or use it for any other purpose. If you are a California resident, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits you to request information regarding the disclosure of your Personal Information by Caring Cross to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to [email protected]
Caring Cross has appropriate security measures in place within its database and physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information that has been collected on the Site. These measures include limiting the number of people who have physical access to Caring Cross’s database servers, as well as electronic security systems and password protections which guard against unauthorized access. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards. However, please be aware that we are unable to guarantee the absolute security of the Personal Information we have collected from you.
Caring Cross may also use a User’s Personal Information to notify the User of Caring Cross’s services and developments via periodic mailings or e-mail updates. Users may opt-out of these communications by emailing Caring Cross at [email protected] with “UNSUBSCRIBE” in the subject line.
Caring Cross will not sell Personal Information of any User. However, in the event Caring Cross goes through an organizational transition, such as a merger, acquisition or other strategic relationship, the Personal Information of Caring Cross’s Users will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred or shared.
Third Party Websites
Caring Cross may maintain links to other websites on the Site, including social media sites. If a User chooses to visit other websites from the Site, Caring Cross will not be responsible for the privacy practices or content of those other websites.
Children’s Online Privacy
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”) imposes restrictions on commercial websites. It is our policy to be compliant with the requirements of COPPA and not to solicit or collect Personal Information from children under age 13 (“Child”) without parent or guardian consent. If you are a parent or guardian and you learn that your Child has provided us with Personal Information, please contact us. If we discover that a Child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will delete such information from our servers.
Although Caring Cross makes every effort to preserve User privacy, Caring Cross may need to disclose or provide access to Personal Information if Caring Cross has a good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with the law, such as in connection with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process.
