Privacy Policy

Updated March 16, 2009

Our Commitment To Privacy
Here at the Christian Parents Forum (CPF) your privacy is important to us. To better protect your personal information, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on each page of our website.  This Privacy Policy may change from time to time.  If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check back at our web site periodically.

The Information We Collect
This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the CPF website. To register and participate in CPF you must provide the following information:

  • E-mail address
  • Correct Age
  • Correct Gender

Information provided by you for the "public profile" is entirely optional, and all information held in that profile is held there at your own risk.  This info is edited via your Control Panel in the forums.

The Way We Use Information
We use return email addresses for CPF related correspondence only.  Email addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

Age and gender information is used to regulate participation in specific forums on the CPF website.

We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.  

CPF also stores and reads cookies to and from your computer. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your web browser to enable our forums and general website features to recognize your browser for when you return to this web site.  By using this website, you agree that both the webserver and any trusted 3rd party we chose, such as advertising networks, may place a tracking cookie on your machine and access it at any time during your session.  In general, cookies are safe and are not a security issue when being used from 'trusted' internet sites such as CPF.    For information on how to manage cookies in your browser, please visit  www.aboutcookies.org/Default.aspx?page=5

Google has a specific policy on cookies and their usage. Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads onto this site. Google's use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to your users based on their visit to your sites and other sites on the Internet. Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy. Please visit http://www.google.com/privacy_ads.html.

We will not sell, transmit or distribute any data held without your prior permission or consent, unless required to do so under relevant United States legislation.

Our Commitment To Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.   CPF will take all reasonable effort to ensure that all personal information about you submitted is maintained secure on our server. 

Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online --- for example, via message boards or chat --- that information can be collected and used by people you don't know. While CPF strives to protect your personal information and privacy, CPF cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online; you make such disclosures at your own risk.

Our Commitment To Children's Privacy
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we require all members state their correct age when registering.  No part of our website is structured to attract anyone under the age of 18.  We will never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13.

How You Can Access Or Correct Your Information

Most submitted information can be edited by the user who submitted it via the Control Panel in the forums. Any other information that you wish to have deleted or edited can be done so by contacting the CPF webmaster.
