Our Website Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting your privacy online. When you visit our website, we may collect personal information from you such as your name and e-mail address. Our third party hosting company will collect additional information such as the URL you came from, your IP address, your domain name, your browser type, the country and state where your server is located, and the pages that were viewed during your visit to our site. All this information is kept on a secure server to protect it from outside parties.

We do not sell or rent personal information to others. We use your information only for the limited purposes of sending you updates and useful information about our programs, promotional information, enhancing the site operation, for statistical purposes, and for overall systems administration.

We understand and respect the right to privacy.

This site uses two specific Google Analytics features: Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. These features generate information about a user’s age, gender and interests from Google’s Interest-based advertising or third-party audience data.

We do not and will not merge any personally-identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information previously collected unless you have been given notice of and have given prior affirmative (i.e. opt-in) consent to that merger; notice and opt-in consent is considered to be given when site visitors choose to enter and submit their information via the forms used by this site. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this website is restricted by the Google Privacy Policy. To provide website visitors more choice on how their data is collected by Google Analytics, Google has developed an Opt-out Browser add-on, which is available by visiting Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on, to enable you to opt-out of Google’s programs.

Our Social Media Rules of Engagement

Thank you for being a fan of The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven’s social media channels. The Community Foundation participates in social media in order to engage individuals and organizations in our region and to foster discussion of issues important to our community.

At this time, we share content on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, and LinkedIn. Each of these social networking platforms has their own privacy policy. Follow these links to learn more about a specific privacy policy: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, and LinkedIn.

We encourage public interaction and communication about the content we post on our social media accounts. However, this does not imply that The Community Foundation agrees with or accepts the content, opinions, or views expressed within any public comment. The person who posts a comment is solely responsible for the content of the comment.

While we encourage fans to share thoughts and opinions on The Community Foundation’s social media pages, we expect that this will be done in a respectful manner.

Our goal is to share ideas and information with as many individuals as possible and our policy is to accept the majority of comments made on our platforms.

However, we reserve the right to remove any comment. A comment will not be edited or modified to remove unacceptable content; the entire comment will simply be deleted.

A comment will be deleted if it contains:

  • Hate speech (an attack on a person or group on the basis of attributes such as gender, ethnic origin, religion, race, disability, or sexual orientation);
  • Profanity, obscenity or vulgarity;
  • Defamation to a person or people;
  • Name calling and/or personal attacks;
  • Comments whose main purpose is to sell a product;
  • Comments that are off topic;
  • Political campaigning or lobbying;
  • Comments that infringe on copyrights;
  • Spam comments, such as the same comment posted repeatedly;
  • Other comments that The Community Foundation Communications team deems inappropriate.

All links posted as comments on The Community Foundation’s social media platforms will be reviewed and may be deleted.

Repeated violations of The Community Foundation comment policy may cause the author to be blocked from The Community Foundation’s social media channels.

We understand that social media is a 24/7 medium; however, our monitoring capabilities are not. We may not see every inappropriate comment right away, and we are trusting in the maturity of our community to respond politely and ignore personal attacks and negative speech.
