Cerebral Palsy Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) entity, has the mission to transform lives for people with cerebral palsy and related disabilities through research, innovation and collaboration.
The services offered by Cerebral Palsy Foundation (“CPF” “us” or “we”) include all officially maintained and managed CPF websites (collectively, the “Site”), including any and all sub-sites and micro-sites officially maintained by us.
This Policy describes CPF’s collection and use of users’ Personal Information (as defined below) where that information is not otherwise publicly available. It also describes generally CPF’s practices for handling Other Information (as defined below) collected from you, through us or from a third party to the extent such information is associated with a particular device, user, or user account.
2. INFORMATION WE COLLECT
“Personal Information” is the information that identifies you as an individual, such as name, postal address, telephone number, email address and credit or debit card number.
Personal Information You Submit
We collect Personal Information when you submit it to us, including but not limited to when you submit a donation; register for or subscribe to certain events, products, or services; create a profile; participate in a sweepstakes or contest; take a survey; use an interactive feature; or participate in a forum.
Personal Information We Receive from Third Parties
We may receive Personal Information about you from third parties, including, for example, information about your transactions, purchase history, or relationships with various product and service providers, and your use of certain applications. For example, if you access an Online Service through a third party connection or log-in, such as Facebook Connect, that third party may provide certain information about your use of its service to us. This information could include, but is not limited to, the user ID associated with your account, any information you have permitted the third party to share with us, and any information you have made public in connection with that service.
“Other Information” is any information that does not reveal your specific identity, such as browser information, information collected through cookies and other technologies, demographic information, and aggregated information. We may combine Other Information with your Personal Information, and when we do, we treat the combined information as Personal Information.
Other Information You Submit
We collect Other Information when you submit it to us. It may include your age, gender, education, occupation, financial information, interests, photos, connections, and comments.
Other Information We Receive from Third Parties
We may receive Other Information about you from third parties, including but not limited to, demographic data, information about your interests, and information about your activities on other websites.
Other Information We Collect Automatically When You are Online
Personal data is collected when users provide personal information that is not publicly available to CPF, for example by registering through the Site and donating funds. The personal information that you provide must be true, accurate and complete and all registration details (where applicable) must contain your real name, address and other requested details.
Aggregated information, such as information on traffic patterns within the Site, is collected by CPF through various methods:
IP Addresses: We collect IP addresses through the Site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the web. Web servers (the computers that “serve up” web pages) automatically identify your computer by its IP address, and when you request a page from the Site, our servers log your IP address. The Site does not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, so although your session will be logged, you will remain anonymous to us.
Children and Privacy
We will not knowingly market to or collect personally identifiable information from children under age 13.
3. HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
