Privacy Policy


The purpose of this policy is to define appropriate security and protection of personal information collected on the CFN website.

Information Security

CFN has appointed an Information Security Officer to monitor privacy practices and maintains strict security procedures to protect visitor information. Access to visitor data is limited to specific individuals who are trained to respect user privacy. The access given to these employees is restricted to their need to know such information for business purposes.

Personal Information

CFN collects only the domain name, but not the email address of visitors to the CFN website. The information collected is used to improve the content of the site. The information is not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes. Information supplied online voluntarily by visitors to CFN including email addresses, postal addresses, and telephone numbers will be kept confidential. CFN will not barter, trade, or sell access to this information. Visitors who have supplied such information may receive periodic email, mailings and telephone calls about promotions and upcoming events. Visitors who do not want to receive such information should contact CFN.

Donor Privacy

CFN will not share or sell any donor’s personal information with anyone else, nor send donor mailings on behalf of any other organization.

Credit Card Information

The CFN website uses SSLA Secured processing to encrypt credit card information provided for online donation processing, class registration, event tickets, or as part of an order placed through online shop. This eliminates the risk of the decoding of that information by anyone other than the CFN for the purposes of processing credit card charges. Visitors can verify the security of their connection by looking at the bottom of the browser window after accessing the server. An unbroken key or a closed lock (depending upon the browser) indicates that the secured processing is active. When accessing a secure server, the first characters of the site address URL will change from “http” to “https.”


CFN does not employ “cookies” in order to gain information about people visiting the CFN website.

Children and Privacy

CFN encourages parents and guardians to spend time with their children online and to be fully familiar with the sites visited by their children. The CFN website will not contain content that is unsuitable for children.

Links to Other Sites

CFN security and privacy practices may differ from other websites linked to from the CFN website. CFN is not responsible for the privacy policy of any website linked to from this site.

Policy Updates

CFN reserves the right, in its sole discretion and without any obligation, to modify or correct any error or omissions in any portion of the CFN website. If CFN website security practices change at some time in the future, these policy revisions will be posted on the CFN website.
