How We Collect and Use Your Information
We collect personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information from you in a number of ways. “Personally identifiable information” is information that personally identifies you, such as your name, telephone number, postal address and e-mail address (or other information that is associated by us with such above information), and non-personally identifiable information is information that does not personally identify you, including anonymous information and aggregate data.
We use this information to understand better how our visitors use our website, research our visitors’ demographics, interests, and behavior, provide visitors with customized services and information, improve our promotional and outreach efforts, and for other similar purposes. In addition, we may also use your personally identifiable information to contact you and send you information regarding CASP and our partners, and the issues as to which we aim to increase public awareness.
You may choose to opt-out of receiving information from us at any point.
We and our authorized designees collect information through the servers for this website, cookies and other technologies. In general, we automatically gather certain information about our website visitors. This information includes the number and frequency of your visits, the URL of the last and next website you visit, your browser and operating system, your IP address, how long you spend on our website and what pages you view here.
We will not allow third parties to place any cookies, web beacons or other similar devices on our website. We do not control such devices that may be placed on our website by third parties. We are not responsible for any other websites accessible from or linked to this website, including their privacy policies or information collection practices.
Other Collection Methods
We also collect personally identifiable information from you as follows:
E-mail Newsletter and Updates: If you sign up on this website to receive our e-mail newsletter and/or updates, we will collect, store and use your e-mail address to send you such information. We will also collect and store your name, as well as other personally identifiable information you may opt to provide to us, such as your postal address, telephone number, and level of interest.
E-mail Questions/Comments: You may choose to contact CASP by e-mail or otherwise, with inquiries or comments. Any personally identifiable information you provide in connection with such inquiries or comments will be collected, accessed and used by CASP for the purpose of processing and responding to your inquiries and/or comments, and to improve our website and offerings.
Online Shop: If you buy from our online shop, we provide our service provider with certain personally identifiable information from you, including your name, postal address, telephone number, and e-mail address. Our service provider uses the information to fulfil and track an order and stores the information. It does not not otherwise share your personally identifiable information, except as required by law.
How We Share Your Information
We may share non-personally identifiable information we collect for a variety of purposes. For instance, we may disclose aggregate, non-personally identifiable information about our website visitors and registered users to organizations that have provided us with funding or with which we have other relationships, for informational purposes.
We may use the services of other companies and individuals to facilitate our services and perform functions on our behalf, such as providing technical and hosting functions for our website, processing credit card payments and providing customer service. [These companies and individuals may have access to and use your personally identifiable information we collect as needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for any other purpose.]
We will not otherwise share your personally identifiable information, except as required by law, requested by governmental entity or law enforcement authority, subpoena, court order or discovery request, or when we otherwise believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary or appropriate in connection with any activity that violates the law (including relating to intellectual property, fraud, contracts and privacy) or may expose us to liability. We can (and you authorize us to) disclose any of your information in such circumstances.
How We Protect Your Information
You should be aware, however, that “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet, and there is always the risk that unauthorized persons may access or use your personally identifiable information. You use our website and send us such information at your own risk.
Accessing, Correcting and Making Choices About Your Information
We wish to maintain your information accurately, and to allow you to make choices about how we use it.
If you have created a user account with us, you may opt out at any time by clicking this link and sending us the email address you wish to be removed.
You can also e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to us at Privacy Matters, CASP, LLC, P.O.

Please be advised that such opt-outs will not apply to our use of your personally identifiable information for other purposes, such as responding to your requests for information or services and communicating with you about your user account.
Our Policy Towards Children
We are concerned about the safety and privacy of children who use the Internet. Our website is not designed for or directed to children under the age of 13. Consistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If we become aware that a child under 13 has somehow provided us with personally identifiable information without verifiable parental consent, we will use our best efforts to remove such information from our files. If you believe that your child has provided us with such information without your consent, please e-mail us at email@example.com or write to us at Privacy Matters, CASP, LLC, P.O. Box 598, Croton Falls, NY 10519, or call us at 866-489-1163.
We make no claim that our website is appropriate or lawful for use or access outside the United States. Furthermore, our databases are located in the United States. If you access this website from outside the United States, you do so at your own risk. You are solely responsible for complying with all local laws, rules and regulations regarding online conduct and website access. By sending us your data, you consent to its transfer to and storage within the United States.
NOTE: Under the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, an “opt-out” or “unsubscribe” link must be included in unsolicited emails you send that are primarily “commercial,” i.e., emails that sell or advertise goods or services or provide links to webpages that do. Such emails must also include a clear and conspicuous identification that the message is an advertisement or solicitation, and a valid physical address of CASP; furthermore, as for all emails, their header and subject line must be accurate and not misleading. After an individual has opted out from such emails, you must remove him/her from your mailing list within 10 business days.
