We may collect your email addresses for our listserv, payment information for purchases and donations, and certain personal information, such as your name, address, organization, phone number, and e-mail, when you use the Website, contact us, or sign up to be a volunteer.

CVNL does not sell names or other personal information about our Website users and subscribers to mass marketers or any other entity, nor do we engage in exchanges of such information. We do not share donor information with other organizations. Online credit card purchases and donations are processed through a third party service provider and we do not retain, store, sell or share any of your credit card, payment-related, or other personal information.

We reserve the right to use personal information to protect the security or integrity of our Website; to protect against a threat to personal safety or destruction of property; to protect against legal liability; or to cooperate with government officials or parties in litigation, or as otherwise required by law.

We do not use this information to track the movement of individual users. We do, however, analyze trends, administer our website, track volume and type of usage, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. This information allows us to measure the number of visitors to various sections of the Website, which helps us make the Website more useful.
