Privacy & Security
About ChildrenProtecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. This Web site is not intended for children under the age of 18. We will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information via this Web site from visitors in this age group, and no part of our Web site is designed to attract anyone under age 18. Please do not communicate with or contact us if you are under age 18. We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the Internet.
Information You ProvideThis Web site actively collects information from its visitors both by asking you specific questions and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via email, feedback forms, and/or chat rooms. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, address, email address, phone number, and so on).
Some areas of this Web site may ask you to submit personally identifiable information in order for you to benefit from the specified features (such as newsletter subscriptions, Ask the Experts, Share Your Story) or to participate in a particular activity (such as surveys or other promotions). You will be informed what information is required and what information is optional.
Never provide your password, telephone numbers, or home address to anyone online. Be very careful about responding to solicitations for interviews or research. Note however that CMHA editors might invite you to respond to such solicitations from time to time.
Never divulge any private or personal information about another person online. That includes the person's real name or address, email address, and any other personal information that the person has not asked you to make public. Do not forward or post private messages that someone has sent you unless you have his or her permission. Only send email to another CMHA member if he or she has given you express permission. Please do not solicit other people's personal information.
The email address you provide is for our use only, unless you provide it to other members. By enabling your username as "clickable" and allowing other members to email you directly by clicking on your username — or by posting your address in a message on our boards — you take full responsibility for the email received. CMHA does not monitor such communications and will not intervene between members who use this function. The only way to keep from receiving undesirable email is to disable the "clickable" function and not share your email address.
This Web site may use and combine such passively collected anonymous information to provide better service to Web site visitors, customize the Web site based on your preferences, compile and analyze statistics and trends, and otherwise administer and improve the Web site for your use. We may at times combine personally identifiable information with passively collected information in order to personalize offers and the Web site for our users (for example, combined information may allow us to recommend products or features to you based on what you have liked in the past).
Use and Disclosure of InformationExcept as otherwise stated, we may use information collected via this Web site to improve the content of our Web site, to customize the Web site to your preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have requested it), for our marketing and research purposes, and for any other purpose specified. In addition, we may make full use of all information acquired through this Web site that is not in personally identifiable form.
If you provide personally identifiable information to this Web site, we may combine such information with other actively collected information unless we specify otherwise at the point of collection. We also may disclose personally identifiable information you provide via this Web site to third parties, but only:
- to respond to law enforcement requests or where required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations.
