We understand and share your concerns regarding your children's access to the Internet and the Internet's access to your children. Consistent with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, we do not knowingly request or accept information submitted to Coordinated Assistance Network ™ or its Network web sites by any visitor under 13 years of age. If we become aware that an individual under 13 has provided information to us through the site, we will not use or disclose that individual's information for any purpose unless required to do so by law. However, there are organizations that have programs designed specifically for youth of various ages, and for those purposes, we recommend that minors between the ages of 13 and 18 ask and receive their parents' permission before accessing the site or sending information about themselves or anyone else over the Internet.
When you visit our site, you may provide us with two types of information: personal non-public information you actively choose to disclose ("Active Information") and use information collected, in a way not visible to you, on an aggregate anonymous basis as you and others browse our site ("Passive Information").
We receive and store much of the information you enter on our website or provide to us in any other way. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our special features.
Registration: In order for you to take advantage of certain services provided on the Site, we may require you to complete a registration form. As part of this registration form, we may require select personal information, including your full name, city, state, last four of your social security number, military and discharge information (where applicable) and e-mail address. To allow you to express yourself beyond just the information collected during registration, we enable you to provide additional information, such as your name, your address, your email address, a site Account screen name, etc. In addition, you may choose to include photos of yourself or images of your choosing in your site account profile. As indicated below, in the section titled "Sharing Your Information", you can control how this information is displayed and used.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. Coordinated Assistance Network™ and its authorized agents broadly speaking, persons we employ directly, or as contractors or agents at our direction, use Active Information for purposes of administering our business activities and providing customer services such as support. Active information is not shared with other organizations unless authorized by Coordinated Assistance Network™ and its platform for the benefit of our members and site users. We may use your active information to send emails to you with related news, products, offers, surveys, promotions, information, and notify you about updates to the site. If at any time you do not wish to receive such emails from us, please send us an email at [email protected].
In Short: Some passive information — such as IP address and/or browser and device characteristics — is collected automatically when you visit our site.
We automatically collect certain information when you visit, use or navigate the services. This information does not reveal your specific identity (like your name or contact information) but may include device and usage information, such as your IP address, browser and device characteristics, operating system, language preferences, referring URLs, device name, country, location, information about how and when you use our Services and other technical information. This information is primarily needed to maintain the security and operation of our Services, and for our internal analytics and reporting purposes. Like many businesses, we also collect information through cookies and similar technologies.
We collect cookie identifiers, or others such as the ones used for analytics and marketing and other similar data. We use Passive Information to gather information about our users and to enhance and design the site to make it easier, faster and friendlier to use. We do not connect any passive information to your personal information or email address. The passive information we collect is used for internal review to improve the content of our Site.
The Coordinated Assistance Network will use personal information only in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which it was collected or subsequently authorized by you. Coordinated Assistance Network™ will take reasonable steps to ensure that personal information is relevant to its intended use, accurate, complete and current.
