1. Information Collection and Use
In general, we collect and use your information to provide services to you. Information provided by you: We collect information that you submit in the process of using CC, including information submitted when you sign-up for e-mail newsletters. For example, we may require you to provide us with your name, valid e-mail address, phone numbers and other information. We will collect any information you voluntarily provide, and we may also request optional information to support your use of CC, such as your year of birth, gender and other demographic information. Additionally, we collect any information that you voluntarily enter, including personal information, into any postings, comments or forums within the CC community. And, if you send an e-mail to us, we will collect your e-mail address and the full content of your e-mail, including attached files and other information you provide.
Third-party service providers: CC may use a variety of third-party services and applications to help provide CC, for example hosting services to host our website and Google Analytics to help us understand how you and other users interact with CC. These third-party services and applications may collect non-personally identifiable data sent by your browser as part of a web page request, including but not limited to data on where visitors came from and what actions they took on our site. We do this to improve your CC experience.
Cookies: Like many websites, we use “cookie” technology to collect additional website usage data and to improve CC. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the site. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to better understand how you interact with CC. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. However, if you decline to receive cookies, some aspects of CC may not work properly and you may not be able to receive our services.
Log data: As you use CC, certain information may be passively collected and stored on our or our service providers’ server logs, including your Internet protocol address, browser type, operating system, the referring web page, pages visited, search terms and cookie information. An Internet protocol address, or “IP Address,” is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. In some cases your IP Address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer internet access provider, your IP Address may vary from session to session.
2. Use and Disclosure of Information
In general, personal information and other information you submit or share with us is used for the following purposes by CC: to enable your access to our services; to provide, maintain, protect, develop and improve CC; to customize the content you receive from us and our trusted partners; and to offer you additional information, opportunities, promotions and functionality from us, from our partner organizations (for example, the Society for Humanistic Judaism) or on our behalf.
We do not disclose your private personal information except in the limited circumstances described below:
To comply with legal requirements: Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Policy, we reserve the right to retain and disclose your information at our discretion if we believe in good faith that such retention and disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on us; or (b) to protect and defend our rights or property, you, or third parties; or (c) to ensure the safety and security of our systems and of our customers and third parties. By accessing and using CC, you consent to us sharing your personal information under the circumstances described herein.
3. Your Choices Regarding Your Personal Information
You have a right at any time to stop us from contacting you.
