privacy policy

Purpose

This policy’s main objective is to assure website visitors that their right to privacy is of primary concern to the Center of Vocational Alternatives for Mental Health, Inc. (COVA). It contains information about what data are collected and how that information is used. This policy may be updated periodically, so please check back from time to time.

When you follow a link to another web site, even the site of another organization, you are subject to the privacy policy of that site. You should check the privacy policies of each of these sites if you have questions about how they handle personally identifiable information.

Automatic Collection of Certain Information

No personally identifiable information is collected from visitors who simply browse this site or who download information from it. While our web servers maintain logs of user activity to help us manage the web site, information stored in these logs or in cookies does not identify you personally. The logs store things such as the domain name and IP address from which you access our site, the type of browser and operating system you used, the date and time you accessed our site, the pages visited and the address of the site that you linked to us from (if you linked to our web site from another web site).

We use this information to learn how many visitors we have, where they are coming from, which parts of our web site are of most interest to visitors, and other facts that will help us improve the web site and the services we offer.

Personal Information

Visitors who request services through this site may be required to furnish additional information in order for us to provide the service requested. The additional information collected will be no more specific than if the visitor were requesting the service by any other means, including by telephone or an in-person visit to a COVA facility. If you participate in a survey, send us an email or submit an online form, your email address and the other information you volunteered will be collected. We may share this information with other organizations to provide the help you are requesting. We may also use that information to help assess user needs and analyze trends.

If you use this web site for online donation or electronic commerce, a reputable third-party collection site may collect, process, disclose and share, with COVA, your name, address and payment information (if applicable) to the extent necessary to complete the online transaction and for record-keeping activities as billing, permits and licenses.

Privacy and Security

We will not rent, sell, or provide any Internet information identifying you individually (name, address, phone, number, etc.) to third-parties for marketing or mailing list. We will not send you unsolicited e-mail regarding any commercial offers or advertisements at any time.

Some information that you submit to us through this web site may be protected by encryption technology, whereas other information may not. Unless a particular web page on this site indicates that encryption technology is being used, you should not assume that information you submit through that web page will be secure. If you submit information to our server through a web page containing visible indicators of active encryption technology, we will take reasonable precautions to safeguard the confidentiality of such information. COVA shall not be held liable for any injury caused by the disclosure of your information, whether by security breach, accident, inadvertence, or any other act resulting in disclosure.

If you wish to review personal information collected and request corrections, or would like to request that COVA not share any personal information outside of the organization, please contact Judy Braun at jbraun@cova.org or Sally Tyler at styler@cova.org.
