In the United States, CFK is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and a major affiliated entity of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. CFK is committed to protecting the privacy of its donors, followers, and subscribers, and we will not disclose, trade, share, or sell your personal information, online or offline, to third parties unless required to do so by law. By using this website, you agree to abide by this Privacy Policy as well as any other applicable Information Technology Services policies.

Information collection and use:

CFK may collect some information about how visitors access and use this website and its contents. The information collected on this website does not include personally identifiable information and may include information such as the computer address used to access the Web site. This data is used to improve website content and website management for users. Cookies may be used to facilitate the navigation of this site, but these cookies will not contain any personally-identifiable information. Other sites within the domain may have different privacy practices. If applicable, consult the privacy statement on each page.

Email Addresses:

We ask for your e-mail address on a number of pages within our site, but you may opt out of e-mail communications at any time by un-checking the box beneath where you entered in your e-mail address, by clicking the unsubscribe link that is included at the bottom of every e-mail communication from CFK, or by selecting “No” when presented with whether or not you would like to receive email from CFK.

Links to Other Websites:

CFK’s website contains links to other sites. CFK is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.

Credit Card Security:

CFK is grateful for the donations that help us continue our valuable work. It is very important to us that your personal information remain secure. When you donate to CFK online, your credit card information is secured by a reputable security company (PayPal & Norton/Verisign). Also, your credit card number is used only for that particular transaction and is not stored. You will also notice in your web site address bar that the domain name starts with an “https” on those donation pages. This means that information entered on those pages is encrypted for your security. This actually makes it more secure than using a credit card in physical form at a store for example.

Changes to our Privacy Policy:

We reserve the right to update and amend our Privacy Policy as needed. A current version of the Privacy Policy will be posted on this Web site.
