However, we may share personal information with third parties in limited instances, including, for example, as necessary to service accounts or operate the service, to third-party technology providers that host this Site or portions thereof and that store your personal information, to other users as directed by you at the time of collection, with our affiliates or subsidiaries, or in connection with a corporate transaction involving the CHPA Educational Foundation.

We may disclose personal information in response to legal requirements, subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, in response to a request for cooperation by a government agency, in response to suspected illegal activity or violations of our terms of use, or to protect our rights or property or those of third parties.

Finally, we may share aggregate information about Site users and usage with third parties, such as government agencies, advertisers, and the media.

How We Protect Personal Information

The CHPA Educational Foundation takes reasonable measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized access. However, no method of transmitting or storing electronic data is ever completely secure, and we cannot guarantee that such information will never be accessed, used, or released in a manner that is inconsistent with this policy.

Automated Information Collections

When you access pages on this Site, we automatically collect and store your Internet Protocol (IP) address, automatically assigned to your computer when you access the Internet. In addition, we may collect other information about your computer, such as the kind of web browser or operating system you are using or the web site that referred you to the Site. We will use this information (1) to help us identify anyone who refuses to comply with our terms of use; (2) to identify visitors who threaten our service, Site, or others; and (3) to measure Site traffic, which helps us to understand how people use the Site and to improve it.


When you visit the Site, we may assign your computer a “cookie” (a small, unique identifier text file) to remember who you are. We also may include other information in our cookie files; for example, if you arrived at the Site via a link from a third-party site, we may include the URL of the linking page. You may opt out of the cookies delivered by the CHPA Educational Foundation by changing the appropriate setting on your browser. Please be aware that opting out of the Site’s cookies will disable all cookies delivered to your browser, not just the ones delivered by the Site. We may combine the information we collect through cookies with other information, including personal information we have collected about you through the Site or from other sources, including third parties.

External Links

As a convenience to you, we may provide links to other websites. Unless otherwise indicated therein, your use of these third-party sites is governed by the privacy policies of those sites, not by this policy. When you access third party web sites, we encourage you to consult those sites’ privacy policies.

Safeguarding Children’s Privacy

The CHPA Educational Foundation does not knowingly collect personal information or other identifying data from children under 13 years of age. Should a child whom we know to be under 13 send personal information to the Site, we will immediately delete that information from our database.
