Combat Blindness International (CBI) is committed to protecting your privacy. We endeavor to maintain industry-standard safeguards to protect information you provide to us.
Information We Collect
We collect information from you when you subscribe to our newsletter or place a donation.
When donating through or registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number or credit card information. You may, however, visit our site anonymously.
Using Your Information
Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:
To process transactions
Your information, whether public or private, will not be sold to, exchanged with, transferred to, or given to any other company for any reason whatsoever, without your consent, other than for the express purpose of processing the service requested.
To send periodic emails
The e-mail address you provide for donation processing may be used to send you information and updates pertaining to your donation, in addition to occasional company news, updates, related product or service information, etc.
Note: If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future e-mails, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with UNSUBSCRIBE in the subject line. Please provide your name and mailing address in the body of the email.
Protecting Your Information
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit or access your personal information.
We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems. We are required to keep the information confidential.
After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, financials, etc.) will not be stored on our servers.
Disclosing Information to Outside Parties
We do not sell, trade or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally-identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property or safety. However, visitor information that is not personally identifiable may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
California Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance
Because we value your privacy, we have taken the necessary precautions to be in compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act. We, therefore, will not distribute your personal information to outside parties without your consent.
Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance
Since we are in compliance with the requirements of COPPA (Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act), we do not collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age. Our website, products and services are all directed to people who are at least 13 years old or older.
CBI’s websites and communications may contain links to other websites. The privacy and data collection practices on linked websites are separate from CBI and are not covered by this privacy statement.
