The Information We Collect and How We Use It
For visitors who are not members and who do not complete order or contact forms on our website, the Conference on Consumer Finance Law (CCFL) collects no personally identifying information (such as your name, address, email address, etc.) about you as you visit our website.
Our web server logs certain information about your visit, such as your IP address, the make and version of your internet browser software, the date and time you access our website and the website address of any referring websites. We use this information in aggregate to study visitors' use of our website, which helps us to improve its usability. We do not use such data in any way to create or maintain a personal profile of you or to collect personal information from you.
For visitors to our website who order our products and services or complete contact forms, we may collect some or all of the following personal information from you: name, company, mailing address, email address, telephone number, credit card number, credit card expiration date, credit card billing information, as well as other personal preference information relating to the products and services we provide. We use your personal information to provide requested information, products and services to you and to help us ensure that the information we provide to you is relevant to your specific needs. We use your email address to communicate with you about the products and services you've purchased or inquired about, as well as to communicate important product and service messages to you. With the exception of important service messages related directly to a purchase or inquiry, each email we send you contains a link which allows you to opt-out of receiving future emails from us.
We will not disclose information we collect from your use of our website to third parties, except as may be legally required.
CCFL is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, that are located in controlled facilities. Credit card information submitted to us is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL). This encryption method is used widely on the Internet to keep information secure. Although we use advanced encryption (Secure Socket Layers), we cannot guarantee the security of the information you transmit to us. Additionally, we only temporarily store credit card information in our online database until we have completed processing the order.
