Privacy Statement

General Policy

The Connecticut Chapter of The American Chestnut Foundation takes the most serious concern for your privacy. We maintain a Privacy and Data Integrity Sub-Committee, that interacts with every Board Level committtee to ensure any proposed action protects the integrity of our member's privacy.

Every instance in which a member's name, or other personally identifyable information is released to a Director or Member of the organization, that person is reminded of the committment to protect privacy, and adhere to the guidelines of this privacy policy. We do not share our personally identifyable information with other organizations, and we clearly articulate the guidelines for use when such information is handled by a third party or fullfillment provider.

Member Contact

Because CT-TACF is a non-profit fully volunteer run organization, we may contact our members from time-to-time with opportunities for involvement, updates on past events or accomplishments, and requests for additional financial or other assistance. This contact may take the form of a telephone call, an e-mail, a letter, or a “hallway” discussion. We hope these are mutually beneficial opportunities for all.

Organizational Materials

Because CT-TACF attempts to provide the greatest level of management transparency possible, all relevant organizational documents are made available through the Documents pages of our web site. These documents are screened to ensure release of Personally Identifiable information in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

Web Site Links

CT-TACF provides links to other web sites as a resource for members. We encourage you to view their privacy policies as well. Any information you share with these web sites is subject to their policies and practices and is independent of CT-TACF.

Web Site Cookies

The website of CT-TACF, uses “session cookies” while a visitor is navigating the web site. “Cookies” are bits of information that are stored by your browser on your hard drive. We use “session cookies” so that we can present the best possible customer experience. These session cookies are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Web log files

Like most web site administrators we use log files that record information such as Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and page navigation. We gather this information to track web site visitor movement in the aggregate, and to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Our goal in gathering this information is to learn how our customers and the public are using our service. IP addresses that are recorded by our log files are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Protecting Personal Information

CT-TACF takes every precaution to protect member information. When members submit sensitive information via our web site, their information is protected both online and off-line. We do not currently request any sensitive information by web form, but were we to do so, it would be protected by by SSL encrytion during form transmission.

We also do everything in our power to protect donor information off-line. All of our donor information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices and amongst our Directors. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. All employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.

Our Newsletter and Mailings

From time-to-time, CT-TACF publishes a Newsletter, and\or individual or group mailings, that are sent to members, recent members, and other interested individuals, using bulk rate mail and\or US Mail.

Complying with the judicial or legal system

Though CT-TACF makes every effort to preserve donor and customer privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our organization.

Changes to our privacy policy

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement.
