All information collected by our website on your behalf is confidential within our organization.
We sincerely appreciate your interest in kids in our community and would not want to jeopardize your trust. The information you share with us will only be used to help us serve you better.

At CSI, we only collect information from you that you voluntarily provide when you subscribe to our eNewsletter, make an online donation or pay for events online. For each visitor to the CSI website, our traffic analysis program utilizes your computer’s public WAN IP address, not your email address, name, or any other form of personally identifiable information.
When subscribing to the CSI eNewsletter, making on online donation or registering for an event on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, e-mail address, mailing address and/or credit card information. We rely on a secure system offered by Donor Perfect for any financial transactions. CSI doesn’t have access to your personal financial information. And, as always, you may visit our site anonymously at any time.
You may choose to provide personal information via the website. Such personal information is kept strictly confidential and is used for internal purposes only, including providing you with requested services, improving our marketing and promotional efforts, statistically analyzing website usage, improving our content and website offerings and customizing our websites’ content and layout. CSI also uses your information to create aggregate reports; however, these reports do not contain any personally identifiable information. This report is used to improve the CSI website and better tailor it to meet our users’ needs.
The traffic analysis software utilized by CSI does not record any personally identifiable information about your usage of the website. Rather, to improve your user experience, we look at broad trends in user behavior.
Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:
To process transactions
Your information, whether public or private, will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any other company for any reason whatsoever, without your consent, other than for the express purpose of delivering the purchased product (event tickets) or service (online donation) requested.
To send periodic emails
The email address you provide when you subscribe to the CSI electronic newsletter may be used to send you information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions. You will not receive an eNewsletter unless you expressly provide us with an e-mail address for the purpose of receiving the newsletter. If you wish to discontinue receiving the newsletter, you can follow the opt-out instructions at the bottom of the e-mail.
In addition, your personal information is used in the following ways:
User IDs and Passwords. Provides you with access to protected content contained in the CSI Intranet as appropriate to your relationship with CSI.
Customer Feedback and Support. Provides a mechanism for requesting information from CSI. Also used to tell us how we can improve our programs, services and site design.
Email Correspondence. Used to raise and respond to issues and inquiries of all types. Also used to distribute information about CSI’s programs and services.
As a security measure for ourselves and our users, we utilize certain software programs to monitor traffic to our site and within our network. This software also enables us to identify user activities and malicious incidents. This allows us to provide you with a safe, consistent environment in which to view our website.
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information.
Some areas of our website utilize Secure Socket Layers to encrypt your information between the browser and our web server. This type of data protection is used in areas where sensitive information, such as proof-of-identity or financial information, would be transmitted to our servers.
If you utilize the Child Saving Institute Intranet, or any other password-secured area of our website, a cookie will be issued to your browser to provide page-to-page session tracking information. If you disable cookies, you will not be able to access our Intranet site.
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential (for example, our payment gateway provider, Donor Perfect, and our website developer). We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety.
The CSI website may contain links to other internet websites. We encourage all our partners, contributors and third parties to implement policies and practices that respect the privacy of our users; however, CSI is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. Our policy only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. To the extent that you disclose your information to other parties, whether they are linked from the CSI website, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the personal information you disclose to them. Because CSI does not control the privacy policies of third parties, you are subject to the privacy customs and policies of that third party. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.
We are in compliance with the requirements of COPPA (Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act). We do not collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age. Our website, products and services are all directed to people who are at least 13 years old or older.
