CareGiver Training Institute Policy for Donations and Membership
Collection, Use and Security of Personal Information
The CareGiver Training Institute values and respects an individual’s right to keep certain Personal Information private. Likewise, CGTI values the need to collect and use Personal Information which will enable CGTI to effectively deliver its products and services.
A. CGTI’s Collection of Personal Information
CGTI will collect Personal Information on an individual only if the individual provides the information to CGTI. CGTI also may collect information about a person who has been referred to the website to send them emails regarding CGTI’s efforts or a person to whom CGTI has been asked to send emails regarding CGTI’s programs or efforts. If a person donates to CGTI, CGTI may collect sensitive Personal Information such as the donor’s credit card number, card type, and expiration date and keep a record of the financial transaction.
CGTI may collect Demographic Information it obtains from individuals and third parties for fund raising purposes and to notify persons of CGTI programs, events, educational opportunities and upcoming meetings.
CGTI may collect Aggregate and Transactional Information and add to its database every time a person visits CGTI’s Web Site. Also, CGTI collects Aggregate Information for research purposes.
B. CGTI’s Use of Personal Information
When an individual provides Personal Information to CGTI, CGTI may use the Personal Information for its programs, fund raising and industry partners.
CGTI uses Transactional Information (i.e. credit card, etc.) for the development or implementation of its programs, products and services. The presumption is that, since Transactional Information is highly proprietary, it will not be disclosed to third parties.
CGTI will disclose all information as required by law.
CGTI will make every effort to discontinue the use of an individual’s Personal Information as soon as practicable if requested by that individual. CGTI may need to retain Information in its archives and records to comply with law, resolve disputes, analyze problems, assist with any investigations and other policies, and take other actions otherwise permitted or required by law.
CGTI will take reasonable and appropriate measures to keep Personal Information confidential and in a secure environment, including taking appropriate action in the event of unauthorized disclosure.
Access to Personal Information will be restricted to only those personnel with a legitimate business purpose.
CGTI owns all Personal Information provided to it by individuals and collected in accordance with this Policy.
