How We Use and Share Personal Information
Uses of Personal Information
We collect and use your information to operate the Site and manage the services you request. This includes coordinating petitions, processing event registrations, processing donations, and registering volunteers. It also includes alerting recipients on our email list of upcoming events, programs, and news so they may stay current on new developments related to CATW. We may periodically contact you with offers, surveys, donations, and information about our services, your subscription, legal notices, or other important information.
We also work with third parties to analyze your use of the Site, including the time and duration of your use of the Site or other information about your interaction with our online content. This data is used to help us improve the functionality of the Site.
Sharing of Personal Information
We take the privacy of all individuals very seriously. We do not sell your personal information, and only share your personal information in certain situations.
First, CATW may share your personal information with our partner organizations. For instance, your name and email address as part of a shared advocacy campaign with a partner organization.
Second, CATW also partners with and hires other companies to provide services on its behalf, such as to help conduct fundraising, relationship and event management, and advocacy activities. In some circumstances, we may directly share your personal information with these service providers, who agree to protect such information. For instance, we outsource the processing of your payment card information to Salsa Labs, which collects such information directly when you make a donation on our Site.
Third, we may also share your information in the event that it is necessary for any of the following reasons:
Your Choices Regarding the Personal Information We Collect
We will honor your choices concerning our collection, use, or sharing of personal information about you. For example, if you receive email communications from us (e.g., newsletters and communications regarding our services) but do not wish to receive further information, you may “opt out” of receiving such by following the instructions contained in those email messages.
Links to Third Party Sites
CATW is committed to maintaining your confidence and trust, and we take reasonable security measures to protect your information, including the use of appropriate physical, technical, and administrative controls. However, no security system is impenetrable, and no transmission or electronic storage of information is guaranteed to be secure. We therefore urge you to always use caution when transmitting information over the Internet.
The Site is not intended for children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect or store any personal information about children under 13 years of age through the Site, unless provided by a parent, guardian, or other adult seeking our services on behalf of a child.
We are based in New York in the United States. The information you submit to us and that we automatically collect as a result of your using the Site will be transferred to the United States, where the privacy and data protection rules may differ from those in your country. By using our Site, you consent to the international transfer to, and storage of, your personal information in the United States.
Your California Privacy Rights
California’s “Shine The Light” law permits residents of California to annually request and obtain information free of charge about what personal information is disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. We do not disclose your personal information to third parties for the third parties’ own direct marketing purposes.
