CCV ‘s commitment to your privacy:
We believe the relationships we have with our supporters are key to our continued success. Therefore, it is important for us to provide you with a clear understanding of how we utilize your personal information.
How we store your personal information:
When you provide us with your name and contact information, it is recorded in a secure database that is owned and managed by CCV.
How we utilize your personal information:
CCV will use your contact information to provide information via mail or email we think may be of particular interest to you. You are free to opt out of communication from us at any time by clicking here, calling us at 1-513-733-5775, or by following the unsubscribe directions on any of our emails. We will never sell or rent your contact information. CCV will never give or trade your name or contact information to other organizations, with the occasional exception of our legislative action arm, CCV Action.
How we track visitors to the web site:
An IP address is the unique number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you log onto the Internet. As you enter CCV ‘s site, our server records and monitors your IP address and uses it to develop aggregated statistical analysis. These analyses assist us in refining and adapting the content and design of our site. The use of IP addresses also enables us to prevent malicious Internet users from masquerading as other users.
How we use “Cookies”:
A cookie is a piece of text or data that can be stored in the memory of your web browser. This data can only be retrieved by the server/domain that places the cookie. CCV employs cookies for the following purposes: – To hold shopping cart data (items that you wish to purchase). – To enable automatic form validation/entry (if “remember me” is selected in site store). – To enable online polling (cookies allow us to limit a user’s response to one). – To compile statistics concerning items offered online.
CCV never stores financial or Credit Card data within cookies. Those who feel uncomfortable with cookie technology can disable cookies within their browser settings. CCV.org is designed to operate with or without cookies. However, some functionality will be removed when cookies are disabled. Disabling cookies will prevent participation in online polling and could result in the loss of shopping cart information.
The option to cancel mailings and emails:
Upon registering, you may begin receiving communications from us. These messages will always contain unsubscribe instructions. If you would like to correct, update, add, or delete personal information, simply let us know by clicking here or telephoning 1-513-733-5775 Mondays through Fridays 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM.
From time to time our site may request information from users via surveys. Participation is completely voluntary. Information requested may include demographic information (such as age and zip code). This information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
Recording information from “email this page to a friend”:
If a user elects to use our referral service to inform a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend’s email address for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email.
