Privacy Policy

Our Commitment to Your Privacy

CDF: A Collective Action Initiative (CDF) respects the privacy of users who visit its site. Your privacy is a priority and we go to great lengths to protect it.

Data Collection

Through our website, we offer convenient access to our services and communicate with you about important opportunities and events. You are not required to provide any personal information on our website unless you choose to do so. You may volunteer to provide us information when you choose to register on our site, purchase items or order tickets through our site, join our newsletter list, make a donation, sign up for a course or training, participate in a survey, or contact us with your questions or comments. If you choose to email us and provide personally identifiable information about yourself, we will not use the information for any purpose other than to respond to your inquiry or as otherwise specifically provided herein.

Use of Information

If you provide CDF with personal information when you visit our website, we may use the information in our programs and activities. We may enter your name into one of our databases so we can contact you to obtain your input, provide information about our programs and events, or request contributions.

When you make a financial contribution online, we collect your name, contact information and standard credit card data. CDF will not sell, trade, or share personal information about our financial donors with anyone else, nor will we send mailings to our financial donors on behalf of other organizations unless you have given us prior written permission to do so.

The information you provide to us will be used to operate our website and to deliver the services you have requested (e.g., to send you the newsletters you requested or to respond appropriately to your inquiries). We may also use the information to conduct market research studies and reports. Additionally, we may share the information you provided in aggregate (non-personally identifiable) form with third parties.

IP Addresses

When a visitor requests pages at the CDF site, our Web servers automatically recognize the browser’s domain name and IP (Internet Protocol) address. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to every computer connected to the internet. When visitors request pages from our website, our servers log the visitor’s IP addresses. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a visitor’s session will be logged, but the visitor remains anonymous to us. Our servers do not record e-mail addresses.

We collect domain names and IP addresses of visitors to our site in order to aggregate information on what pages users access or visit for the purposes of system administration and to audit the usage of our site. We also use IP addresses to collect statistical information for marketing and promotional purposes. We may use IP addresses to identify a user when we believe it is necessary to enforce compliance with the terms governing use of our site or to protect our services, site, customers, or others.


When we transfer and receive certain types of sensitive information such as financial information, we redirect visitors to a secure server for the transfer of data. We have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our site. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or any information provided by our on-line products or services, and you do so at your own risk. We will not be liable for disclosures of your personal information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties. However, once we receive your transmission, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.

Information Disclosure and Information Sharing

We reserve the right to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request or to cooperate with law enforcement and other authorities investigating a claim of illegal activity.

On occasion, CDF may share information about you with vendors and service providers that assist us with our activities and program. These vendors and service providers help us with functions such as fulfilling orders, managing data and processing donations.

When you purchase items or tickets on one of our websites, we will share the information you disclose at the time you make the purchase with: 1) the shipper for purposes of delivering products and 2) the credit card processor for purposes of collecting money for purchases, donations, or registrations.

This site contains links to other sites. CDF is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.

Changes to the Use of Information

From time to time, we may use customer information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy policy. If our information practices change at some time in the future, we will contact you before we use your data for these new purposes to notify you of the policy change and to provide you with the ability to opt out of these new uses. You may prevent your information from being used for purposes other than those for which it was originally collected by sending us an e-mail at
