The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee Internet Privacy Policy

The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee (“CFMT”) respects the privacy of individuals who visit and use our website. We are committed to protecting your online personal and credit card information in accordance with the terms of this Internet Privacy Policy.

While you can use many features of our website without being required to provide personally identifiable information, from time to time, you may be requested to provide your personal information to gain access to some of our content or services, to contact us, to make a donation, or to receive additional information from us. By visiting our website you accept and agree to the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

How We Collect and Use Personal Information

CFMT may collect personal information about you when you visit our website. This information is used to provide you with the information that you are requesting from us, information on our services and information regarding your charitable contributions. Personal information we collect may include: a login ID and password, your name, your mailing address, your e-mail address, your phone number, your fax number, information concerning your charitable contribution and additional information used to contact you.

Automatic Information

CFMT may also collect automatic information about your visit to our website, such as time of day, browser type and version, browser language, your operating system and platform, and the Internet Protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet.

How We Protect Your Personal Information

We have taken precautions to protect your personal information under our control from misuse, loss or alteration. Our security measures include industry standard technology and equipment to help protect your data. Unfortunately, however, no system can ensure complete security and you should take all necessary steps to protect your information and its transmission to us. Since the Internet is a public medium, we cannot guarantee the absolute protection of your personal information or other data.

How We Protect Credit Card Information

CFMT is committed to protecting the security of your credit card information and to honoring your choices for its intended use. To help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we process financial transactions using the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard -- PCI DSS (the credit card industry's security standard). Examples of our security measures include: physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards and the use of strong encryption (e.g., SSL) for transmissions of credit card information to and from our credit card processor.  While we employ procedures to help ensure that your credit card information is only used for authorized purposes, we cannot make any guarantees with respect to the actions or policies of third parties.
