Privacy Policy

Effective Date: October 25, 2012

This Privacy Policy provides the terms and conditions under which ConnectToTech, Inc. (“ConnectToTech”) protects the information supplied by any person (“you” or “User”) viewing or using the ConnectToTech Website located at www.connecttotech.org. This Privacy Policy is effective as of the Effective Date provided above and applies to all information previously obtained. This Privacy Policy is subject to change at the sole discretion of ConnectToTech and without any additional notice. Continued use of the ConnectToTech Website after we post a revised Privacy Policy signifies your acceptance of the revised Privacy Policy.


  1. Personal Information

Throughout this policy, we use the term “Personal Information” to describe information that can be associated with a specific person and can be used to identify that person (i.e. name, address, email, telephone number, and other information which may be necessary for you to utilize ConnectToTech’s services). Personal Information does not include information that has been anonymized so that it does not identify a specific user. ConnectToTech will use your Personal Information only in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Our obligations to protect information provided by you are limited to the terms provided in this Privacy Policy, and ConnectToTech does not have an obligation beyond the terms herein to protect your Personal Information.

We collect your Personal Information when you give it to us voluntarily for the purpose of using the services that we make available on our website. In the event that a User provides Personal Information directly to ConnectToTech, such as when a User participates in blogs or forums, requests information, purchases or enrolls in services, participates in a contest or promotion hosted by ConnectToTech, registers as a volunteer for events, provides resume information for employment opportunities, fills in a contact inquiry, sends us an email, or participates in any other interactive service provided by ConnectToTech, ConnectToTech will use a User’s Personal Information to fulfill the User’s specific request. Generally Users will be given the opportunity to select whether they do, or do not, want ConnectToTech to use their Personal Information for additional purposes. Users may contact ConnectToTech directly by using the “Contact Us” link on ConnectToTech’s homepage to provide specific instructions regarding use of the User’s Personal Information.  

ConnectToTech reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to send you important information about your ConnectToTech services, including upcoming events and volunteer opportunities. Absent any instructions from you, ConnectToTech may use your Personal Information to inform you about additional services and products offered by ConnectToTech which might be of interest to you.

  1. Minors under 13

ConnectToTech does not knowingly collect or solicit Personal Information from anyone under the age of 13. No one under the age of 13 is permitted to provide any Personal Information. If you are under the age of 13, please do not attempt to provide any Personal Information to ConnectToTech or send any information to us.

  1. Public and Generic Information

Information provided by Users that is devoid of Personal Information, including voluntary feedback, comments, questions, blog responses and posts, or any information that is publicly available, or available to all Users (“Public Information”) shall be treated by ConnectToTech as non-confidential, and nonproprietary, and not personal, except as otherwise expressed in this Privacy Policy. ConnectToTech assumes no obligation to protect Public Information from disclosure

In general, ConnectToTech may automatically gather generic information which may include information about the internet address assigned to your computer, the type of browser used, the number and frequency of visitors, and any other information which may be gathered in the normal course of business of operating a website (“Generic Information”). All such Generic Information does not reveal the identity of the visitor. ConnectToTech may gather this information for the limited purpose of determining customer service and website needs, as well as how to best improve ConnectToTech in order to provide high quality services to our customers. We accomplish this by using certain generally available technologies, including “cookies” (a technology that can be used for authenticating, session tracking, and maintaining Generic Information). ConnectToTech does not combine information collected in this way with any Personal Information.

  1. Blogs, Forums and Discussion Boards


Information that you disclose in a public space, including Public Information, Personal Information, or Generic Information, on any blog, bulletin board, or publicly-available profile, may be available to anyone else who visits that ConnectToTech webpage. ConnectToTech cannot safeguard any information you disclose in these locations. ConnectToTech’s obligations to protect Personal Information provided by Users is limited to the terms provided in this Privacy Policy, and ConnectToTech does not have an obligation beyond the terms herein to protect Users’ Personal Information.

  1. Disclosure to Third Parties

ConnectToTech will not disclose your Personal Information to any third party, except if we are required to do so to comply with a subpoena or other legal process, or as may be necessary to maintain our website. Personal Information will not be sold, shared, or disclosed by us for marketing or other purposes not expressly consented to by you.

  1. Security and Data Protection

We store and process your Personal Information on our computers and servers in the United States.
