Privacy Policy


Thank you for visiting the Canadian Foster Family Association Web site and reviewing our privacy policy. Our privacy policy is clear: We will not collect personal information about you when you visit our Web site unless you choose to provide that information to us.

HOW WE HANDLE YOUR INFORMATION
Here is how we handle information about your visit to our Web site:
If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the Web site, read pages, or download information, we will gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you personally. We automatically collect and may store the following information about your visit:

  • The Internet domain (for example, “xcompany.com” if you use a private Internet access account) and IP address (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web) from which you access our Web site;
  • The type of browser and operating system used to access our site;
  • The date and time you access our site;
  • The pages you visit; and
  • If you linked to the CFFA Web site from another Web site, the address of that Web site.

We use this information to help us make our site more useful to visitors – to learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors use. We do not track or record information about individuals and their visits.

When you visit the Canadian Foster Family Association (CFFA) Web site, the Web server automatically collects a limited amount of information essential for the operation and security of our Web site and the other sites that reside on the server. Some of this information (e.g. browser type) does not identify who you are. Other information, such as your Internet domain name or IP address, may identify you depending, in large part, on the naming standards followed by your Internet service provider. You may wish to ask them about their policies and practices in this regard.

We collect only what is necessary for the operation of the Web Site and the provision of requested materials to you.

LINKS TO OTHER SITES
This Web site contains links to other sites. We are not responsible for the content and the privacy practices of other Web sites and encourage you to examine each site’s privacy policy and make your own decisions regarding the accuracy, reliability and correctness of material and information found.

SECURITY
For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, the web server to which this web site is hosted upon employs software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.

Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, no other attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits.
