The Center for Child-Safe Divorce Information Gathering Process

Personal Information

In general, the Personal Information gather enables CCSD to provide the Services to you and assists CCSD in learning more about the use of the Site and/or Services. We gather Personal Information that you or someone else submits voluntarily through the Site or the Services. If you are a member of our organization (“Member’), paying for a Member’s annual dues, or making a donation to CCSD, we may also gather Personal Information offline. One type of Personal Information we gather is “Payment Information”, which means the information necessary to process a payment from you, including the following: (i) your name as it appears on the card, (ii) the credit or debit card type (VISA, MasterCard, American Express or any other issuer accepted by CCSD), (iii) a valid credit or debit card number; (iv) the date of expiration of your credit or debit card, (v) your billing address, and (vi) any activation numbers or codes needed to charge your card.

To receive our digital communications (e.g. emails, announcements, newsletters, etc), you must provide your email address. When CCSD receives communication from you through our Site or by you sending CCSD an email, we may gather and store any information that is contained in your communications with us. You can choose not to provide CCSD with certain information, but this may limit the features of the Site or Services you are able to use.

If you become a Community Member or Professional Alliance Member, we will need to gather additional Personal Information about you and/or Professional Information about your business to process and administer your Membership. We may receive this Personal Information from you or, if a third party buys you a gift Membership to our organization, from the party paying for your Membership. If you do not wish for CCSD to gather or hold information about you that you did not provide to us, please see the section below regarding deleting and changing your information. If you are the party paying for a Membership but are not yourself a Member, the only personal information we gather about you will be your Payment Information.

If you wish to donate to CCSD, we will gather your Payment Information for such donation.

One of the Services we provide is access to our various public and private communities on http://www.facebook.com (“Facebook”), through which you may make certain Personal Information available to CCSD and other community members. You control and may restrict and edit the Personal Information that you make available to CCSD by editing your privacy settings on Facebook. We do not gather or record any Personal Information through Facebook unless you expressly request CCSD to do so to provide you certain Services (e.g., requesting Membership information or a newsletter subscription). We may gather the information about your use of the application on Facebook or that you otherwise make available, however, in an anonymous manner such that your identity cannot be ascertained from such information. For example, we may record that a user “liked” content or the number of photos tagged by a user, but we will not record that you liked that content or that you tagged certain photos. We will consider this aggregated and anonymous information gathered from Facebook as “Anonymous Information”.

One of the Services we provide is access to our community, feed and images on other social media platforms/communities including, but not limited to http://www.Twitter.com (“TWITTER”) and http://www.Instagram.com (“INSTAGRAM“), through which you may make certain Personal Information available to CCSD and other community members. You control and may restrict and edit the Personal Information that you make available to CCSD by editing your privacy settings on Twitter and Instagram; additionally, you control your content by what you post. We do not gather or record any Personal Information through Twitter or Instagram unless you expressly request CCSD to do so in order to provide you certain Services (e.g., requesting Membership information or a newsletter subscription). We may gather the information about your use of the application on Twitter or Instagram or that you otherwise make available, however, in an anonymous manner such that your identity cannot be ascertained from such information. For example, we may record that a user “liked”, “shared” or retweeted content by a user. CCSD reposting or retweeting or making use of quoting via #quote does not violate our Privacy Policy and any information or images you share with the public and/or CCSD gives CCSD permission to use within the confines of normal activity on Twitter and Instagram. We will consider this aggregated and anonymous information gathered from Twitter and Instagram as “Anonymous Information”.
