California Retriever Training Association Online Privacy Policy

California Retriever Training Association (CRTA) respects the privacy of all visitors to our Web site. We realize that concerns about privacy and the secure transfer, storage, and use of personal information have increased with the growth of online services. Thatís why CRTA maintains strict privacy policies and uses state-of-the-art technologies to safeguard personal information.

What kind of information do we collect?
When you visit our Web site there are two kinds of information that we are likely to record:

Non-personal statistical information collected in the aggregate.
This is anonymous information on subjects such as: how many visitors come to our Web site, how they navigate through the site, which browsers they use to visit the site, etc. This information is collected in aggregate to aide in our continuing efforts to improve our visitorís online experience.

Personal information that you voluntarily supply to us.
When you sign up for certain services on the CRTA Web site, such as memberships, e-mail alerts, reservations, or requests for information, we may collect "personally identifiable information," which will be used to fulfill your request. Examples of personally identifiable information are: name, address, telephone number, e- mail address, etc.
It is a common business practice to collect "personally identifiable information" in order to conduct business and provide specific services. CRTA has collected this information from its members in the past to provide services through mail or over the telephone. The emergence and popularity of the Internet provides CRTA with yet another way to communicate with the public and meet their needs.

We do not sell or trade information
CRTA will not sell or trade your personal information to any third party, absent authorization by you. We only collect your personal data in order to provide you with better services.

Receipt of E-mails
E- mail gives CRTA another convenient avenue to communicate with the public. You will receive e-mails from us or our authorized third-party fulfilling agent if you have signed up to be notified when certain news or events occur or if you have requested information. CRTA will not, however, send you e-mails if you have not specifically subscribed to these services or do not wish to receive them.

Children
CRTA does not knowingly collect personal information from children under 18 years of age. We do not have any content on our site that would be considered harmful to children and certainly do not restrict children from visiting our site.

Linked Web Sites
The CRTA Web site contains links to other Web sites. Please be aware that these other sites may have privacy policies that differ from CRTAís. CRTA is in no way responsible for either the content that appears on linked sites or your privacy once you have linked to other sites.

Updates
In order to improve our service or to keep up with future industry changes, the information in this privacy policy may be periodically updated. We will post a new date in the event that the current policy is altered.
