You can browse the site without revealing personal information that can be used to identify you. CCF may collect nonpersonal information such as your Internet Protocol ("IP") address, the name of the domain you used to access the Internet, the Web site you came from and the site you visit next. However, CCF does not associate any non-personal information with records containing any personal information submitted to us, so you remain anonymous when you browse the site.
Anonymous browsing information, including your IP address, may be used to gather broad demographic information. This information may be aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent, page views, and other statistics about users of the site. We also may use this data to monitor site performance and to make the site easier and more convenient to use.
Personally Provided Information
CCF may collect personal information such as names, company names, titles, addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers, and e-mail addresses from users. For example, CCF may collect personal information submitted through online application and event registration and donation forms.
CCF uses personal information collected from users, such as names and e-mail addresses, to respond to user inquires, to process user applications for grants or participation in CCF programs, to help organize fundraising events, and to inform users of new programs and services.
Unless we have your consent or except as required by law, CCF will not share your personal information with any person or entity other than those affiliated with CCF, entities acting on behalf of CCF, and relevant third parties such as CCF program participants and sponsors.

This is accomplished through industry-standard computer security methods, encryption techniques, and strict internal administrative processes that limit the number of CCF employees who have access to personal information.
