We provide this notice to explain our online information practices. By visiting CSD at www.csd.org, you are accepting the practices described in this privacy notice.

1) Privacy Policy Statement

CSD is committed to protecting the privacy of its website visitors. Information gathered by CSD is used to monitor the effectiveness of our site, personalize your Internet experience, conduct surveys, and respond to your questions and requests.

Aggregate Information

When you visit our website, our server automatically logs (records) domain name and standard anonymous information about the operating system and Web browser you are using, as provided by your Web browser. This automatically collected information is used for statistical purposes to help us manage our site and better serve the community, but it does not identify you in any way.

Identifiable Information

When you visit our website, you may choose to provide us with your personal information (such as name and email address), which is collected on an individual basis for various purposes. These purposes may include registering to receive email newsletters, surveys, or other materials, requesting further information from us about our products and services, making requests, submitting a form on our website, or simply asking a question. We may receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. We may ask for personal information so that we can fulfill your request and return your message. This information is retained and used in accordance with existing laws, rules, regulations, and other policies. CSD does not collect personal information from you unless you provide it to us. If you choose not to provide any of that information, we may not be able to fulfill your request, but you will still be free to browse the other sections of the websites owned and administered by CSD. This means that you can visit our site without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself.

CSD does not sell your personal information to third parties. However, CSD may contact you in the future to send you information about its products, services, or surveys. CSD respects your privacy and, as such, would be pleased to exclude you from its list to send you information. You may unsubscribe through links at the bottom of all emails. You may also inform us if you wish to unsubscribe by emailing csd@csd.org.

2) Data Security Statement

The security of your personal information is very important to us, and we are committed to protecting the information we collect. CSD.org uses firewalls and has security measures in place at its physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our website.

Personally identifiable information is stored on our server and is not publicly accessible. Further, personally identifiable information is accessed only by CSD personnel on a “need to know” basis. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

 

3) Online Surveys 

Occasionally, CSD will conduct a survey to collect information about your preferences and opinions. These surveys are optional, and if you choose to respond, your responses may be shared but will be kept anonymous. You may unsubscribe to receiving emails regarding surveys through links at the bottom of all emails. You may also inform us if you wish to unsubscribe by emailing csd@csd.org.
