It is The Council for Human Rights’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website. This Privacy Policy applies to https://www.chrusa.org (hereinafter, “us”, “we”, or “https://www.chrusa.org”). We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting personally identifiable information you may provide us through the Website. We have adopted this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) to explain what information may be collected on our Website, how we use this information, and under what circumstances we may disclose the information to third parties. This Privacy Policy applies only to information we collect through the Website and does not apply to our collection of information from other sources.

This Privacy Policy, together with the Terms and conditions posted on our Website, set forth the general rules and policies governing your use of our Website. Depending on your activities when visiting our Website, you may be required to agree to additional terms and conditions.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, The Council for Human Rights collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The Council for Human Rights’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Council for Human Rights’ visitors use its website. From time to time, The Council for Human Rights may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

The Council for Human Rights also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://www.chrusa.org blog posts. The Council for Human Rights only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to The Council for Human Rights’ websites choose to interact with The Council for Human Rights in ways that require The Council for Human Rights to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Council for Human Rights gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at https://www.chrusa.org to provide a username and email address.

Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We have the latest SSL encryption using PositiveSSL through Sectigo, formerly known as Comodo. Based on our observation, this level of security meets or exceeds most other 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations in this region.
