Protection and Privacy Policy

The California Black Health Network (CBHN) is committed to protecting the privacy of our customers’ personal information. This statement applies with respect to the information that we collect from visitors to our website, located at www.cablackhealthnetwork.org. This statement also applies to information we collect in order to process commercial transactions initiated by customers on our website.

By your use of our website you signify your assent to this privacy policy. If you do not assent to this privacy policy, you are not permitted to use this website. By your use of this website following posted changes to this privacy policy, you signify your assent to those changes.

Information Collected

We collect non-personally identifiable information about you in a number of ways. The information we collect depends upon what you do when visiting our site.

If you visit our website to read or download information, we collect and store only the following information about you: the name of the domain from which you access the Internet (for example, aol.com, if you are connecting from an American Online account); the date and time you access our site; and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our site. We use the information we collect to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our website, and to help us make our website more useful to visitors.

On your own initiative, you may decide to send us personally-identifying information, for example, you may choose to include such information in an electronic mail message or you may subscribe to our e-mail list. Additionally, there may be times when we request that you provide us with personally-identifying information about yourself, such as your name, e-mail address, telephone number, address, organization name, products/services sold, and/or credit card information. We also maintain a record of your online purchases. However, if you provide us with your credit card information we will retain only the last four digits of your credit card number and the transaction ID associated with your online purchase.

Whether or not you provide such information is completely your own choice. We want to be very clear: We will not obtain personally-identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us.

Use of Information

In general, we will only use the information you provide to us for the purpose for which such information was provided. We may also use this information to contact you when necessary; deliver to you information about our company and/or promotional material from some of our partners; and/or perform trend analysis, pattern detection, and website administration.

Non-personal demographic and profile data is used to tailor your experience at our website, showing you content in which we think you might be interested. This information may also be shared with advertisers on an aggregate non-personal basis.

We may use personally-identifying information from you to respond to your inquiries or for other internal business purposes, but we do not sell or rent that information to third parties. However, you should be aware that although we have security measures in place (see Section V below), the possibility exists that other will illegally access such information and use it-though any such use would be without our consent.

CBHN shall have the right to distribute your personally-identifying information to outside processors (e.g. banking service providers). Both the Chamber and its outside processors may (i.) use the information you provide as necessary to process your online purchases; (ii.) maintain the information as long as necessary or as required by law and used internally for record keeping, internal reporting, and support purposes; and (iii.) provide the information as required by law or court order, or to defend our rights in a legal dispute.

Use of IP Address

We may use your IP Address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our website.

Use of Cookies

When you view our website we might store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a “cookie” or similar file. A “cookie” is a persistent, client-side text file. Cookies are pieces of information that a website can transfer to a visitor’s hard drive for record-keeping purposes. The use of cookies is a widespread-industry practice and many major websites use cookies.

We may use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests and to prevent you from reentering all of your registration data at each connection. Cookies facilitate web surfing by saving visitor preferences and other information. Using a cookie allows record-keeping while you are visiting a website and saves you the extra effort of entering certain information multiple times in one web site.

Our website may display advertisements. Although we do not have access to the information that would confirm whether or not our advertisers use cookies, you should be aware that these advertisements may contain cookies.

Security

Our website has industry standard security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. While there is no such thing as “perfect security” on the Internet, we will take all reasonable steps to insure the safety of your personal information.
