Like all organizations with a web presence, The Community Foundation receives standard tracking data when you visit our site. Information from your browser, including your IP address, pages visited, the length of time you spend on our site and files you download is recorded in our website server logs. We use and analyze this data to develop site content and continue to provide you with a positive experience when you visit our website. However, no personal information is collected during the tracking process.

Online giving transactions are processed on a secure server. We have put into effect appropriate procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Once you provide us with personal, professional or financial information, that data remains confidential.

We will not sell, rent, loan or otherwise share any personally identifying information you provide with any individual or organization. While we strive to protect the personal information of our users, The Community Foundation will release personal information if required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary or appropriate.

In accordance with federal law and the guidelines set up by the Federal Trade Commission regarding youth privacy, The Community Foundation will not knowingly collect any personal information from young people under the age of 13.

The following policies outline how the Community Foundation uses information submitted voluntarily by visitors to our website, CFGG.org.

Your e-mail address will only be used within the The Community Foundation. The Community Foundation does not share, sell or rent e-mail addresses to anyone outside the organization. If you do not wish to receive e-mail correspondence, please e-mail your request to info@cfgg.org or call our Director of Marketing and Communications at 336-379-9100.

A unique number called an IP address identifies every computer on the Internet. Each time you connect to the Internet your machine is assigned an IP address. An IP address is a number that identifies each sender or receiver of information that is sent in packets across the Internet. The Community Foundation uses your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer the CFGG.org website.

“Cookies” are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in the future. The Community Foundation uses cookies to maintain user session identity, and, in some non-member areas, to store your username and password locally for ease of access.

The Community Foundation may also collect certain demographic information about visitors to CFGG.org through the use of cookies. The Community Foundation only uses this data to improve the overall CFGG.org website and for internal business purposes.

The Community Foundation’s website registration forms require users to give us contact information (such as name and e-mail address), method of payment, and demographic information. The Community Foundation may use customer contact information from the registration forms to send the user information about The Community Foundation. The customer’s contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary. Information regarding method of payment is collected for member enrollment, registration and to process orders for products and services.

CFGG.org contains links to other external websites that do not fall under the CFGG.org domain. CFGG.org is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such external websites. If you choose to follow such links to external websites, you do so at your own risk.

CFGG.org uses an order form for customers to request information, products and services. The Community Foundation collects visitor’s contact information (such as e-mail address) and method of payment. Contact information from the order form is used to process orders and to send information about The Community Foundation. User payment information that is collected is used to check the users’ qualifications and bill the user for products and services. This information is transmitted via a secure e-mail.

CFGG.org online surveys ask respondents for contact information (such as e-mail address) and demographic information (such as zip code and age). The Community Foundation also may use contact data from its surveys to send information about The Community Foundation.

This site makes chat rooms, forums, e-mail lists and message boards available to its users.
