Collection of Personal Information
In general, you can visit the Site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information, which is any information that identifies you individually (such as your name, postal address, or email address). However, if you want to access certain features offered through this Site, such as the Members Only section, you may be asked for personal information. We also may collect personal information when you send us a comment or question, or request information. If you do not want to give us any personal information, you can decide not to use these features of our Site.
Use of Personal Information
CHPA may use personal information that we collect in connection with operating the Site and providing products or services identified on the Site, including:
1. for the purpose for which you originally provided the information;
2. to respond to your questions, comments and requests for information or to send you notifications about your account or the Site;
3. to allow you to communicate with us or others, to the extent allowed by the Site;
4. to analyze your use of this Site, enhance existing features, or develop new features, products, or services;
5. to send you information about CHPA or any of our products or services,
6. to help us evaluate existing and additional services; and
7. as otherwise described to you at the time of collection.
Disclosure of Personal Information
CHPA will not share your personal information with third parties for marketing purposes.
However, we may share personal information with third parties in limited instances, including, for example, as necessary to service accounts or operate the service, to third-party technology providers that host this Site or portions thereof and that store your personal information.
Finally, we may share aggregate information about web site usage with third parties, such as government agencies, advertisers, and the media.
How We Protect Personal Information
CHPA takes reasonable measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized access. However, no method of transmitting or storing electronic data is ever completely secure, and we cannot guarantee that such information will never be accessed, used, or released in a manner that is inconsistent with this policy.
Automated Information Collections
When you visit the Site, we may assign your computer a “cookie” (a small, unique identifier text file) to remember who you are. We also may include other information in our cookie files; for example, if you arrived at the Site via a link from a third-party site, we may include the URL of the linking page. You may opt out of the cookies delivered by the Site by changing the appropriate setting on your browser. Please be aware that opting out of the Site’s cookies will disable all cookies delivered to your browser, not just the ones delivered by the Site. We may combine the information we collect through cookies with other information, including personal information we have collected about you through the Site or from other sources, including third parties.
As a convenience to you, we may provide links on the Site to other Internet web sites, including third-party sites that provide information about us or our products or services. Unless otherwise indicated, your use of these third-party sites is governed by the privacy policies of those sites, not by this policy. When you access third-party web sites, we encourage you to consult those sites’ privacy policies.
Safeguarding Children’s Privacy
CHPA does not knowingly collect personal information or other identifying data from children under thirteen (13) years of age. Should a child whom we know to be under thirteen (13) years of age send personal information to this Site, we will immediately delete that information from our database.
