Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy (“Policy”), effective 12 August 2017, tells you about the Cincinnati Animation Network’s privacy practices governing personal information we may collect when you visit our website, and how we may use and share that information.  Your prior activities on the site may have been governed by an earlier version of this Policy.

From time to time, we may use your information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our Policy.  If our information practices do change materially, we will post the changes to our website and revise our Policy accordingly.  In addition, if we have collected personally-identifying information from you, we will notify you and secure your consent before using your personal information in new ways.

What Information Do We Collect?

Personal information:

We collect personal information you choose to provide to us in connection with your activities on the site, such as site registration, completing a survey on our feedback page, or signing up for our newsletter.  This may include your name, job information, phone number, email and postal addresses, and the like.

Other user information we collect:

In addition, for each visitor to our site, we automatically gather certain other potentially identifying information and store it in log files.  This information includes (as applicable) internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, your operating system, date/time stamp, processor or device serial number, unique device identifier, and clickstream data.  We collect and store this information on an individual basis and in aggregate, or combined, form.

“Do Not Track” Signals.  We do not currently have the capability to recognize browser “Do Not Track” signals.  We adhere to the standards set forth in this privacy policy.

Cookies – We do not currently use cookies on our site.

Analytics –  To determine how many users visit our site, how often they visit this site, and to better understand the areas of greatest interest to our visitors, we use a tool called “Google Analytics” to compile this information for us.  As a result of your visit to our site, Google may collect information such as your domain type, your IP address and clickstream information.  We do not combine the information collected through the use of analytics tools with personally identifiable information.  For more information about the analytics company’s ability to use and share information about your visits to this site, see http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

How Do We Use and Share the Information We Collect?

We store and process your personal information to facilitate your registration on the site and to respond to any inquiries you may make through our Contact Us page, Feedback page, and the like, and to send you information we believe will be of interest to you.  You can opt out of email correspondence at any time by using the unsubscribe mechanism in any email from us; however, we may still send you emails to facilitate agreed-upon transactions.

We also use information we collect to analyze trends, to administer the site, and to track users’ movements around the site.  We also use this information to improve the site and to make it more useful to visitors.

We do not share personal information we collect on this site with any third parties, except that we may share personal information where we have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process.

It is possible that, at some time in the future, our company may be sold along with its assets, or may engage in business transactions in which customer information is one of the assets transferred. In such a case, the customer information which we have gathered may be one of the business assets we transfer.

How Long Do We Keep the Information We Collect?

We will retain your personal information in accordance with our continuing business need to service this relationship and/or to improve our site.

Security

The security of your personal information is important to us.  We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, and to guard that information against loss, misuse, or alteration.

Please note, however, that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure.  Therefore, while we use commercially-reasonable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

How to Correct Information

If you wish to update, correct, or delete any personal information we have about you, send your request to cincycan@gmail.com.  To help us process your request, please provide sufficient information to allow us to identify you in our records.  We reserve the right to ask for information verifying your identity before we disclose or modify any information in our possession.
