Collection of Personal Information for CHCF’s Email Lists
When signing up for updates from the CHCF, you are asked to provide basic information, including name, email, state, zip code, and industry type. This information is gathered in a secure, encrypted form. Two-way validation ensures that only you can sign up with your email address. Providing the name of your organization and job title are optional. This information is collected so we can send out announcements about new CHCF publications and projects to you via email, as well as targeted information related to your self-selected topics of interest.
Zip code and state information is used to provide information that may be most relevant to a contact based on where they reside. This may include events that are happening in a specific city, and data and policy information relating to a specific region.
You may elect to provide a job title, organization name, industry type, and interest areas to help us target additional information that may be of interest. By providing this information to CHCF, you agree to receive updates from the foundation.
Security of Information
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the data submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive them. However, no method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure. Therefore, while we store these data in a secure and encrypted environment, we cannot guarantee their absolute security.
Updating Personal Information
Contacts can update their personal information or stop receiving emails from CHCF in the following ways:
- Visit our website and click the “Update email preferences” link in the footer. By entering your email address, you are able to change your associated name, zip code, and subscription preferences.
- A similar “Update email preferences” link is included with all email blasts (your email address is prepopulated).
- An “Unsubscribe” link is included in all email blasts. This link allows you to opt out of receiving any future emails from CHCF.
We will not sell your personal information or share it with any third party. CHCF does not contract with any advertising or marketing agencies to gather individual or group profile data on our visitors based on personal profiles. CHCF does not target for-profit advertising to visitors.
