Collaborative for Children Website Privacy Policy

Our Commitment to Privacy

Collaborative for Children (CC) is committed to maintaining your confidence and trust, and accordingly maintains the following privacy policy to protect the personal information you provide online.

Basic Confidentiality Policy

It is CC policy that personal information, such as your name, postal and e-mail addresses and telephone number, is private and confidential. Accordingly, the personal information you provide is stored in a secure location, is accessible only by designated staff, and is used only for the purposes for which you provide the information (such as to register for a training class).  If you also indicate on our site that you would like to receive CC's newsletter, your personal information will be added to the appropriate CC mailing list. If at any time you change your mind and would like to add or remove your name from the CC mailing list, or correct your personal information, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

No Release of Information to Third Parties

Personal information will not be released to third parties except to provide your name to instructors for specific training classes for which you have registered. There are no other circumstances under which we will provide personal information to third parties, nor will we sell your information at any time.

No Computer Tracking of Identifiable Information

Our website is not set up to track, collect or distribute personal information about its visitors. It does recognize the home server of visitors, but not email addresses. For example, we can tell which Internet Service Provider our visitors use, but not the names, addresses or other information about our visitors that would allow us to identify the particular visitors to our site. This information is used only for internal purposes by CC technical support staff.

In addition, our website tracks information about the visits to our website. For example, we compile statistics that show the daily number of visitors to our site, the daily requests we receive for particular files on our website and what regions those requests come from. These aggregated statistics are used internally to better provide services to the public and may also be provided to others, but again, the statistics contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information.

Our Commitment to the Privacy of Children

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important to CC. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information on our website from those we actually know are under age 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under age 13.

Program Participants

CC is not responsible for the privacy practices or policies of participants in its various programs.

Links to Other Internet Sites

At certain places on CC's Internet site, live links to other Internet addresses can be accessed. Such external Internet addresses contain information created, published, maintained, or otherwise posted by institutions or organizations independent of Collaborative for Children. CC does not endorse, approve, certify, or control these external Internet addresses and does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, usefulness, timeliness, or correct sequencing of information located at such addresses. Use of any information obtained from such addresses is voluntary, and reliance on such information should only be undertaken after an independent review of its accuracy, completeness, usefulness and timeliness. Reference therein to any specific commercial product, process, or service by trade name, trademark, service mark, manufacturer or otherwise does not constitute or imply endorsement, recommendation, or favoring by Collaborative for Children.
