Visitors to the Website and Website Security
The CADCA website collects information about each visitor to our website in the following ways:
- IP Addresses
Your IP address does not reveal any personal information about you or your activities. Our web server host logs all IP addresses of all visitors to automate information collection concerning web traffic, usage, length of time visitors stayed, new visitors, entry and exit points, and the like. It is also used as statistical information for reporting and to find ways to improve web usability.
- Online Forms
Online forms are generated by our database to gather information about you and your organization when you register as a member, presenter, an event or training. None of this information is shared with third parties, except that which is intended to be shown on results pages as delineated on the form. If you post information that is available on the web, and wish to have it removed or corrected, please contact us, and we will comply with your request as soon as possible.
None of your contact information or any of your correspondence that you send via regular mail, online through forms, through email, or any other means is ever sold to third parties under any circumstances, and is used only to conduct our daily business in accomplishing our mission under our policies as a nonprofit entity.
CADCA Sharing Practices
None of the information we collect is shared with any third-party except as aggregated statistics for organizational performance reporting purposes, capturing and defining web traffic patterns, and website improvement. Information of this kind is never used to track or monitor individual users. Our purpose is to provide communications and collaboration with and among nonprofits, to improve the information flow to the nonprofit community, and to improve the content and usability of our website, programs, products, and services. If you send us questions about our website content or any of our areas of operation, we may forward your request for information to parties who would be able to assist you, or we may respond to you with that information in kind. You may at any time request us not to do so, and we will comply with that request, except as we are required by legal regulations or a court order to do so. It is unlikely we will contact you for verification, but we reserve the right to do so, should it become necessary. If you contact us by email or phone, we may ask you to verify your personal information so that we may respond to your inquiry with an assurance of your identity. Our online database is protected by security put in place to safeguard data integrity and to prevent unauthorized access and/or use of its systems. These security measures have been designed to provide the user with reasonable protection of private information entrusted to our possession.

Such surveys are always on a volunteer basis, and it is not necessary for you to fill it out. Should you decide to fill a survey out, the types of information that are collected may include demographics such as zip codes, age group, ethnicity, services received or provided, etc. However, none of this information will be collected on any one individual or that can be used to identify any one individual. Survey information is used in the aggregate to improve our organizational and online services.

Photographs, video, or audio recordings taken at CADCA events may be used by CADCA in electronic or print promotions or educational materials. If you do not wish your image or voice recording to be used, please give your name to a CADCA staff member at the applicable event, and let him or her know of your request.

CADCA collects and stores credit card numbers when registering for an event, purchasing an item or making a donation, which are stored in our database. Paper forms received with payment details are stored in a secure location and kept on file only for the time period required by the IRS (after that, the forms are shredded for your security). CADCA does comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) which is a set of requirements designed to ensure that ALL companies that process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. Only select applicable CADCA staff has access to the financial records in our database and none of this information is shared with third parties.
