We are the sole owners of the information collected on this Site. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone. We will use your information to invite you to upcoming CVNY events and respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization.  Registered members will have access to other members’ basic contact information through the secured Members Only section of the Website, which they can use for networking and sharing information at the discretion of the Executive Committee.

CVNY may also use and disclose your information in the following ways:

  • To conduct surveys;
  • To conduct executive committee or other member-based elections;
  • To create an event sign-up function, such as Eventbrite, linked from the Members Only section of the Website;

  • To protect CVNY’s rights or property or the safety of CVNY, our members, or others;
  • To comply with any court order, legal process, or respond to any governmental or regulatory request; and
  • To transfer information in the event of a merger, transfer of assets, or other organizational restructuring.

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit information via the Website, we take precautions to ensure that your information is protected both online and offline. However, no transmission or electronic storage of information is guaranteed to be secure, and you should exercise caution before submitting any sensitive information through the Internet.

Cookies and Other Online Tracking Technologies

We use “cookies” and Google Analytics on this Website. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a Site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our Site and identify repeat visitors to our Site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our Site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our Site.  Similarly, Google Analytics will enable us to track Site visitors in order to improve the user experience.

Aside from the technical and aggregate information described above, we do not collect personal data about an individual’s online activities over time and across third-party sites or online services, nor do we permit third parties to do so on our Website.  Because an industry-standard Do-Not-Track protocol is not yet established, our information collection and disclosure practices will continue to operate as described in this Privacy Policy regardless of any “do not track” settings.  You may elect to block cookies on your browser’s settings, but please note that blocking cookies may negatively affect certain features on our Site.
