PRIVACY POLICY & TERMS OF USE

About our Policy

Your privacy on the Internet is important to us. As part of the operation and customization feature of The Centralia College Foundation's Web site ("CentraliaCollegeFoundation.org"), we gather certain types of information from users, and we would like to explain the types of information we gather, what we do with them, and how to correct or change the information.

Information Collected By CentraliaCollegeFoundation.org
CentraliaCollegeFoundation.org collects two types of information from users: personal data such as zip code, email address and demographic information; and aggregated data such as information about traffic patterns on CentraliaCollegeFoundation.org (for example, how many users log on to CentraliaCollegeFoundation.org on a daily basis).

Aggregated Information
Aggregated information, such as which pages users visit, is collected through various means. One of these ways is through an IP address, a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Web servers, the computers that "serve up" Web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you request a page from CentraliaCollegeFoundation.org, our servers log your IP address. CentraliaCollegeFoundation.org does not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, so although your session will be logged, your session will remain anonymous to us. CentraliaCollegeFoundation.org collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration only.

Use of Cookies
CentraliaCollegeFoundation.org uses cookies to automate the process of logging on to certain areas of the site. The CentraliaCollegeFoundation.org cookie is a small data file stored on your computer that contains a single, randomly assigned user ID number. By recognizing this ID number, CentraliaCollegeFoundation.org can automatically provide you with the personalized content which you requested. Cookies can neither read any other files on your computer, nor damage your computer. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. If you'd prefer, you can set your browser to refuse cookies or to alert you when cookies are being sent.

Use of Information Collected by CentraliaCollegeFoundation.org
CentraliaCollegeFoundation.org uses both the personal and aggregated information we collect for multiple purposes. The information is used to improve the content of the site, to customize the content and/or layout of the site for each individual user, and if requested, to provide information services by email to the user. After registration, users will receive a single email message confirming registration. The Centralia College Foundation will never disclose your personally identifiable information to a third party unless required to do so by court order, law or governmental agency.

Information Security at CentraliaCollegeFoundation.org
Centralia College Foundation employees understand the need for user privacy and CentraliaCollegeFoundation.org has appointed a privacy policy administrator to monitor privacy practices. Access to user data is strictly limited and can only be accessed by specific individuals who have the necessary username and password combination. A log is maintained to record who has accessed the data. This log is checked at least weekly for possible security breaches.

Refund Policy
Once a gift has been made to the Centralia College Foundation and the gift has completed being processed by the banking institution, the gift will not be refunded. It is the Foundation's understanding that your gift is a donation to a not-for-profit 501c3 corporation; governed by IRS regulations and when the transaction is complete the case is closed. Possible exceptions would be if there are litigious circumstances involved, or if the individual is purchasing tickets to an event and they are unable to attend because of circumstances beyond their control. If the refund request is made seven days prior to the event, a refund will be considered.

Links to Other Sites
It is important to note that CentraliaCollegeFoundation.org contains links to sites other than CentraliaCollegeFoundation.org, and that those sites may not follow the same privacy policies as CentraliaCollegeFoundation.org.

Changes to the Privacy Policy
The Centralia College Foundation reserves the right to change the policy on use of information collected. Any changes in policy will be noted in a revised privacy policy statement and will be posted at least 30 days prior to implementation. You may direct any privacy policy questions to jjohnson@CentraliaCollegeFoundation.org.
