1. Information you provide and information we collect
CIDDL.org strives to provide information and services to meet user needs. To do this, we may ask you to register or to provide certain personal information in order to use the services and our products, including visiting various areas of our Website, entering a contest or sweepstakes, gaining access to premium content, registering for an event, completing surveys, submitting content, subscribing to a newsletter or asking us for additional information. We only collect personally identifiable information that you submit voluntarily through a form. If you choose not to register or provide personal information as we request, you may still enjoy our Website.
An IP address is a number that has been automatically assigned to your computer. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address. CIDDL.org may collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our advertisers, sponsors, and partners, and to audit the use of our site. When Users request Web pages from our services, our servers log the Users’ IP addresses. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that a User’s session will be logged, but the User remains anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a User when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our rules or terms of service or to protect our service, site, customers or others. Some features of our services, such as certain message boards, may display IP addresses along with the message- poster’s User name and message. Please review each feature prior to use and only use those that disclose information you are comfortable sharing.

5. Unsubscribe from Our Communications
You may unsubscribe from our marketing communications by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link located on the bottom of our e-mails, updating your communication preferences, or by sending us email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
6. Use of Aggregate User Information
CIDDL.org may share aggregate information about our Users with advertisers, business partners, sponsors and other third parties. For example, we may say that our audience is “x” percent male and “y” percent female. We use this information to customize our content and advertising to deliver services that are well tailored to our Users’ needs. De-identified/aggregate data will have all direct and indirect personal identifiers removed. This includes, but is not limited to, name, ID numbers, date of birth, demographic information, location information, and school ID. Furthermore, CIDDL.org agrees not to attempt to re-identify de-identified data and not to transfer de-identified data to any party unless that party agrees not to attempt re-identification.

8. Security of Information
The security of our Users’ personally identifiable information is of the highest priority. CIDDL.org exercises great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, CIDDL.org cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or through our services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Whenever credit card information is transmitted we use industry standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption. If you have an account or use another password-protected service, you are the only person who can access it and view the User information concerning the account. We strongly recommend that you do not share your password with anyone. CIDDL.org will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or email. Ultimately, you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and any account information. Please remember to sign out properly and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This helps ensure that others cannot access your personal information and in the event the computer you use is accessible to others or if you share a computer with someone else or use a computer in a public place such as a library or Internet cafe. In addition, from time to time CIDDL.org may create and supply, at its sole discretion, additional security features for its Users. These security features are designed only for the use of Users. CIDDL.org provides no warranty, express or implied, that any such security features may not be broken, violated or in some way compromised.

For questions related to our data use and protection, you can contact the appointed data protection officer via email through: email@example.com

To make such a request, please contact us at the email or mailing addresses set forth in the Contact Information section with “Request for California Privacy Information” in the subject of your communication. You may submit this type of information request to us only once per calendar year. If applicable, we will provide you, by email or written correspondence, a list of the categories of personally identifiable information that we disclosed to third parties for their direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year. We will also provide you the names and addresses of those third parties.
