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.
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.

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.

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.
