Privacy Policy

http://www.californiateenhealth.org  (“California Adolescent Health Collaborative”) operates this website. It is California Adolescent Health Collaborative’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, California Adolescent Health Collaborative collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. California Adolescent Health Collaborative’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how California Adolescent Health Collaborative’s visitors use its website. From time to time, California Adolescent Health Collaborative may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

California Adolescent Health Collaborative also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on California Adolescent Health Collaborative blogs. California Adolescent Health Collaborative only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to California Adolescent Health Collaborative’s websites choose to interact with California Adolescent Health Collaborative in ways that require California Adolescent Health Collaborative to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that California Adolescent Health Collaborative gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for email provide a name and email address. Those who engage in transactions with California Adolescent Health Collaborative are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, California Adolescent Health Collaborative collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with California Adolescent Health Collaborative. California Adolescent Health Collaborative does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

California Adolescent Health Collaborative may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, California Adolescent Health Collaborative may monitor the most popular blogs on the California Adolescent Health Collaborative site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. California Adolescent Health Collaborative may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, California Adolescent Health Collaborative does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

California Adolescent Health Collaborative discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on California Adolescent Health Collaborative’s behalf or to provide services available at California Adolescent Health Collaborative’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using California Adolescent Health Collaborative’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. California Adolescent Health Collaborative will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, California Adolescent Health Collaborative discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when California Adolescent Health Collaborative believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of California Adolescent Health Collaborative, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an California Adolescent Health Collaborative website and have supplied your email address, California Adolescent Health Collaborative may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with California Adolescent Health Collaborative and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. California Adolescent Health Collaborative takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
