What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Contact Forms & Personally Identifiable Information:
We collect personally identifiable information, such as name and email address, from website visitors in a contact form which enables you join our membership. We collect personally identifiable information from you only if you voluntarily provide the information to us. We store this data for a maximum of 18 months from the date of submission for customer service and membership purposes. We do not sell, rent or lease our customer list to third parties.
Analytics & Non-personally Identifiable Information:
Like most websites, DC Citizen Federation collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. DC Citizens Federation’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use our website.
Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting: We have implemented and use Google Analytics code to gather third-party audience data (such as age, gender, and interest) for tracking and marketing efforts. Such code does not collect any personally identifiable information. You can opt out of this tracking by using the Google Ads Preference Manager: http://www.google.com/settings/ads/. You can also get the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
