Information Collected by CommunityWestFoundation.org
CommunityWestFoundation.org collects two types of information from users: personal data such as zip code, name and address (for event registration); and aggregated data such as information about traffic patterns on communitywestfoundation.org (for example, how many users visit communitywestfoundation.org on a daily basis).
Our event registration process requires a name, address and event selection. Providing us with other information is at your option; we are not responsible for information collection via online donations through our 3rd party payment partners. Please review their privacy policies carefully.
Like many web sites, we may also automatically receive general information that is contained in our server log files such as your IP address and cookie information. Like most standard Web site servers we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Community West Foundation assigns every computer a different Cookie. The information collected by Cookies:
(i) helps us to statistically monitor how many people are using our website
(ii) for what purposes these actions are being taken
