Our Commitment to Privacy - CCTF Privacy Policy

Updates Aug 2019

Central Coast Track & Field Club (CCTF) is the sole owner of the information collected on its sites and through other means. We will not sell, share, rent, or otherwise disclose this information to other parties other than as disclosed in this statement. CCTF collects information from our members and website users in a variety of ways.

The CCTF website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that CCTF is not responsible for the privacy practices of other websites. We encourage our users to take appropriate precautions when leaving our website and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by the CCTF.

What information is collected from you and how it is used

No registration is required to read the public parts of the CCTF web site. Only duly authorized staff or a representative of the CCTF may post information or materials on the CCTF public website. Only authorized staff, volunteers, and dues paying members may access the private CCTF sections of the website.  Only CCTF staff may post materials there. CCTF collects information from our users at several different points throughout our website and from other sources. This section describes these points of collection.

In order to become a member of the CCTF, interested parties must first complete a membership registration form. During registration an applicant is required to give contact information such as name, address, phone number, and e-mail address for all households involved in a club or management of an event. For members seeking club or event membership status, this information is used to verify adequate insurance coverage for clubs and events and to create a membership database so we may contact members about topics pertaining to the CCTF.  For club and event memberships, the CCTF captures and maintains information about the official representative of an organization, including name, email, mailing address, as well as information about the organization. All information is required unless otherwise stated on the membership form. This privacy policy governs both members who apply online or otherwise. Individual members that are not directly a member of a club or event are required to give information such as name, address, phone number, and e-mail address. This information is used to create our membership database so we may contact members about topics pertaining to the CCTF.  All credit card payments processed through the membership system and done via PayPal.  The CCTF is an approved client of PayPal, and all required documentation is on file with their company. Review the PayPal privacy policy.

Individuals that are no longer the official representative of their organization, may request to be permanently deleted from the CCTF database by providing a signed affidavit verifying their identity and requesting that their personal information be permanently deleted from the CCTF’s membership database and Constant Contact account or any other online accounts the CCTF may use to contact or store specific information about the individual.  The request and affidavit verifying identity should be mailed or email mailto:centralcoasttf@gmail.com.

The CCTF is committed to protecting our donors’ privacy. Our donors expect that we will use their support wisely. We value our donors’ trust, and we recognize that maintaining this trust requires us to be transparent and accountable to our supporters and the public at all times.  The CCTF collects, uses, and discloses personal information only for certain purposes that are identified to the donor. We may use information to establish and manage our relationship with a donor.  We obtain relevant personal information about donors lawfully and fairly.  The main use for this information involves raising money to reach our goals, to process gifts, and return appropriate receipts and thank you letters in accordance with IRS regulations. We will occasionally release a list of our donors in order to publicly recognize and thank them for support of our organization. In such cases, other organizations and third parties will have access to our donor names and in some cases donation amounts.

The CCTF does not sell, trade, or rent the information and contents of active donor files to others. The CCTF does not share donor e-mail addresses to third parties.  The CCTF only uses and discloses personal information with donor permission. Donor permission can be in writing or implied, either verbally and/or electronically. A donor may withdraw permission to collect, use, and disclose personal information at any time by giving the CCTF reasonable notice, subject to legal or contractual obligations. A donor may opt out of sharing of any information, including name and address, by emailing the mailto:centralcoasttf@gmail.com.  When a donor has communicated a desire to opt out of the disclosure of his or her information, the CCTF will not include the donor’s data to another organization or third party.

The personal information in our possession shall be kept accurate and up-to-date. Donors may always correct their personal information if they believe that our records are not correct. If a donor feels that any of our information about them is inaccurate or incomplete, the donor has the right to ask us to change it or delete it. If a donor’s personal information is wrong in any way, the CCTF will make the required changes.
