Privacy Policy

The Children's Heart Foundation respects your privacy and is committed to the protection of your personal information. CHF’s Privacy Policy summarizes what personally identifiable information we may collect, and how we might use this information. Please be sure to read this entire Privacy Policy before using or submitting information to this site.

This Policy applies, in general, to all Internet sites operated by or on behalf of CHF.

Your Consent
By using this site, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy. Should you submit information to a CHF website, you are consenting to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Information You Provide
CHF collects information you knowingly and voluntarily provide to us, such as information you provide when signing up to receive e-mail alerts, completing a survey, or when asking us a question or providing feedback. This information may be personally identifiable information (i.e., name, address, telephone number, or e-mail). You will be informed what information is required and what information is optional.

CHF websites are not intended or designed to attract children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from visitors in that age group.

Information Collected Passively
When you visit a CHF website, certain anonymous information may be passively collected through the use of cookies, Internet tags, or other navigational data collection including log files, server logs, or clickstream. Your Internet browser automatically transmits to our websites some of this anonymous information, such as the URL of the website you just came from and the Internet Protocol (IP) address and the browser version your computer is currently using. You may set your computer to notify you when a cookie is sent, or to refuse cookies, but refusing to accept cookies may not allow certain features of our websites to work properly. Remember, the only personally identifiable information CHF collects is the information you voluntarily provide.

Use and Disclosure of Information
CHF will not sell or rent personally identifiable information to any third party for any purpose. CHF may use the services of a third party to provide CHF with support services in connection with our websites and such parties may, from time to time, have access to your personally identifiable information to enable them to provide those services to CHF. Please take note that CHF requires all such third parties to meet the same standards of data protection as CHF and are prohibited from using the information for their own marketing purposes.

CHF uses personally identifiable information only for the purposes for which you provide it. In addition, CHF may use collected information, both personally identifiable and anonymous, to improve the content of our websites, to customize our websites to your preferences, to communicate information to you (if requested), for our internal marketing and research purposes, to analyze statistics and trends, and for any other purpose specified.

How We Protect Your Personal Information
CHF is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. CHF takes reasonable steps to protect your information as you transmit it to our site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Please keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever completely secure or error free, and CHF cannot be responsible for breaches of security beyond our reasonable control.

Links to Other Websites
CHF websites may contain links to third-party websites as a service to you. Please note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to such third-party website.
