Privacy Policy

Every member’s registration data and various other personal information are strictly protected by the Childfree By Choice Online Privacy Policy, which is set forth below. As a member, you herein consent to the collection and use of the information provided, including the transfer of information within the United States and/or other countries for storage, processing or use by Childfree By Choice and/or our subsidiaries and advocates. 

This Privacy Policy explains how CBC collects, uses, shares, and protects Personal Information (defined below), and your choices about the collection and use of Personal Information. This Privacy Policy applies to Personal Information collected or processed through our Sites and Services (collectively, the “Service” as referred to below).  

If you are a California resident, in addition to other rights provided to you under other laws and under this Privacy Policy, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits you to request information regarding the disclosure of Personal Information about you to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email using our contact us page on the Site.

“Personal Information” is information that, either alone or in combination with other information, identifies you. Examples of Personal Information include, among others, name, email address, phone number, and mailing address. When we combine Personal Information with other information (i.e., information that does not, on its own, identify you), we treat the combined information as Personal Information.

We collect and use Personal Information in various ways depending on the context and the particular Service. For example, on our website, we collect contact information from you if you wish to sign up as a candidate or sponsor or for our newsletter. As another example, if you make a donation to a crowdfunding project powered by our Service, we process the Personal Information you provide to facilitate the donation. In other words, we process Personal Information with your consent; as necessary to provide the Service; or for our, our clients’, or our users’ legitimate interests. For other purposes related to the reasons for which you provide Personal Information.

We collect the following types of information automatically through your use of the Service: Cookies, Device Identifiers, and Similar technologies. When you use or access the Service, we use cookies, device identifiers, and similar technologies such as pixels, web beacons, and local storage to collect information about how you use the Service. We process the information collected through such technologies, which may include Personal Information, to help operate certain features of the Service (e.g., to keep track of selections in your cart), to enhance your experience through personalization, and to help us better understand the features of the Service that you and other users are most interested in. In addition, we, or third-party advertisers we engage, may use cookies, device identifiers, and similar technologies (such as “web beacons” or “tracking pixels”) to provide you with personalized promotions or to track the effectiveness of our promotional content, including whether you viewed or clicked on links in a promotional email, social posting, or other communications. Most browsers provide you with the ability to block, delete, or disable cookies, and your mobile device may allow you to disable transmission of device identifiers. If you choose to reject cookies or block device identifiers, some features of the Service may not be available or some functionality may be limited or unavailable. If you disable cookies or device identifiers, you may continue to receive promotions, but these promotions will no longer be tailored to you. Please review the help pages of your browser or mobile device for assistance with changing your settings. Some of our service providers may use cookies or other methods to gather information regarding your use of the Site and may combine the information in these cookies with any Personal Information about you that they may have. The use of such tracking information by a third party depends on the privacy policy of that third party.  

When you use our Service, our servers automatically record information, including your Internet Protocol address (“IP Address”), browser type, referring URLs (e.g., the site you visited before coming to our Service), number of clicks, and how you interact with links on the Service, domain names associated with your internet service provider, pages viewed, and other such information (collectively, “Log File Information”). We use Log File Information collected from our implementation of the Service to further our legitimate interests in securing the Service by identifying potential threats and vulnerabilities, and in analyzing the effectiveness of our Service to improve the Service’s function and content.

To help personalize our Service and to better understand the demographics of users of our Service and sponsors, we may use information derived from your IP address to estimate your location (roughly at the precision of your zip code). If we require access to more precise location data to provide you a certain feature (e.g., to help you identify nearby opportunities), we will only access your device’s location in accordance with the consent that you provide through your browser or device, which you may revoke at any time by following the instructions provided by your browser or device manufacturer.

CBC will not disclose your Personal Information except as set forth in this Privacy Policy or with your consent. We employ service providers to perform tasks on our behalf and to assist us in providing the Service. A list of third-party service providers is available upon request. We take commercially reasonable steps to help ensure our service providers provide at least the same level of protection for Personal Information as we do. We may share certain information with advertising partners to enable them to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you.If we sell or otherwise transfer part or the whole of CBC or our assets to another organization (e.g., in the course of a transaction like a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, or liquidation), any information collected through the Service, including Personal Information, may be among the items sold or transferred. We may disclose Personal Information at the request of law enforcement or government agencies or in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal processes to establish, protect, or exercise our rights or to defend against a legal claim or as otherwise required or allowed by law, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of any other person. We may also disclose Personal Information to investigate or prevent a violation by you of any contractual or other relationship with us or your illegal or harmful activity.

 If you are using the Service from outside the United States, please be aware that Personal Information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States. Although we take steps to provide adequate safeguards, the data protection laws of the United States might not be as comprehensive as those in your country. By using the Service, you consent to your information being transferred to the United States for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

We use commercially reasonable safeguards to help keep the information collected through the Service secure and take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. Despite these efforts to store Personal Information in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public, we cannot guarantee the security of Personal Information during its transmission or its storage on our systems. Further, while we attempt to ensure the integrity and security of Personal Information, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third parties such as so-called hackers from illegally obtaining access to Personal Information. We do not represent or warrant that Personal Information about you will be protected against, loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties.

CBC does not knowingly collect or solicit any Personal Information from children. In the event that we learn that we have collected Personal Information from a child without parental consent, we will promptly take steps to delete that information.

If you would like to access, amend, erase, export (i.e., data portability), or object to or restrict the processing of, Personal Information about you, you may submit a request using our contact us form on our Site. We will promptly review all such requests in accordance with applicable laws. When we process Personal Information about you on behalf of a client, we must act on our client’s instructions—including with regard to how to respond to your request. 

We may send notifications, newsletters, promotions, or other information via email (“Communications”). You may choose to stop receiving Communications by indicating your preference in your account profile or settings. You may also follow the unsubscribe instructions in any email you receive. Please note that certain Service-related Communications are necessary for the proper functioning and use of the Service and you may not have the ability to opt out of those Communications.

We will retain your Personal Information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes for which your Personal Information has been collected as outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required by law.

We are not responsible for the practices employed by any websites or services linked to or from our Service, including the information or content contained within them. We encourage you to investigate and ask questions before disclosing your Personal Information to third parties, including social media sites on which you choose to share your CBC content.

CBC may modify or update this Privacy Policy from time to time, so please review it periodically. We may provide you with notice of material changes to the Privacy Policy as appropriate under the circumstances. UNLESS OTHERWISE INDICATED, ANY CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY WILL APPLY IMMEDIATELY UPON POSTING TO THE SERVICE REGARDLESS OF ANY OTHER ACTIVITY.
