Compliance with Privacy Laws
CCRNR respects your privacy. We also strive to protect the confidentiality of any personal information you may give us. We'd like you to know (a) the circumstances under which we collect information, (b) the kind of information we collect, and (c) how we may use that information.
We'll let you know specifically before we collect any of your personal information (details that can identify you as an individual, such as your name or address). We will explain what information is being collected and how it will be used. You have the right to decline to have this information collected or transferred.
We will only collect personal information, which you choose to provide to us. We do not use techniques that collect personal information about you without your knowledge.
You may provide us with information on-line, in a telephone conversation, or through a completed printed form. The information you provide will be securely stored either on a computer or as part of a hard-copy filing system.
1. On the Internet, by phone, or mail
We may, from time to time, offer opportunities to receive information from CCRNR. You will initiate any request for information unless you are an employee or volunteer from a CCRNR member organization at which time that organization could share information with CCRNR for contact use.
The CCRNR database is not shared, given, sold or rented to any other party under any circumstances. It would reside on our computer, and may only be accessed by CCRNR representative who has (a) been authorized to do so and (b) has a password issued by our IT department.
None of the information we collect from you would be maintained on the Internet or on an Internet-accessible computer.
