The Center for Individual Freedom takes your privacy seriously. Protection of your fundamental right to privacy is a cornerstone of this organization. You can therefore rest assured that our privacy practices are held to the highest standards of the internet, or anywhere else for that matter. Should you choose to provide us with personal information, such as your name, phone number or e-mail address, the Center will vigorously guard the information and only use it to respond to your specific requests. The Center will never sell or rent your information, or even share it with any third party without first obtaining your express authorization.
Please read the following to understand how your personal information will be treated:
Gathering of Information and Cookies*:
The Center requires no personal information for access to our site and will collect information from you on a strictly voluntary basis. You may choose to receive e-mail updates from us upon request and may at any time ask to discontinue receiving them.
*A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent from many of the websites you visit to your browser and is saved on your computer’s hard drive in a file named "cookies.txt." This information, usually in the form of a unique number assigned to your computer, is often used to allow a website to keep track of your user name and password so you don’t have to log back on each time you visit that site, or to update you on changes to the site since your last visit.
The Center utilizes state-of-the-art procedures to protect your privacy. For donations to the Center, we use the services of Hockaday Donatelli Campaign Solutions to process all credit card transactions. As effective as our security measures may be, it is important to know that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as completely secure. That is simply a reality we all must live with to benefit from this remarkable communications medium.
The Center may utilize software programs that create summary statistics to determine site activity and assess what information is of most or least interest to our visitors, to determine technical design specifications, and to identify system performance areas. The information we receive is in the form of an aggregate report and does not identify any individual.
