COFI Privacy Policy

COFI has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website.

Our site’s email sign-up form requires users to give us contact information (like their name and email address). We use contact information from the sign-up form to send the user our electronic updates about COFI activities. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.

We will not give or sell your email address to other parties. The only exception to this is if another non-profit organization assumes responsibility and takes control over our donor list. In that case you will be given two weeks notice before the transfer to opt out.

This site contains links to other sites, and COFI is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other websites.

Our site uses donation forms from donors to support our program. We collect the donor’s contact information (like their email address). Contact information from the donation form is used to send acknowledgements, donation receipt letters, and information about COFI to our donors. The donor’s contact information is also used to get in touch with them when necessary. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below. Credit Card information that is collected is used to charge the user donations. It is never divulged to any outside party.
