Information Collection and Use
The Catholic Benefits Association is the sole owner of information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. The Catholic Benefits Association collects information from our users at several different points on our Web sites.
Our Web site offers an opportunity for visitors to provide information for response to inquiries. The electronic contact information may be linked to an internal mailing list. We use this contact information to send users related information. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings at any time (see the choice/opt-out section below).
Sharing and Usage
We will never share, sell, or rent your personal information with third parties for their promotional use. Occasionally, we enter into contracts with third parties so that they can assist us in servicing you (for example, providing customer service). The contracts prohibit them from using any of your personal information for their own purposes, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information we provide to them. Lastly, we may disclose or report personal information in limited circumstances where we believe in good faith that disclosure is required under the law. For example, we may be required to disclose personal information to cooperate with regulators or law enforcement authorities, to comply with a legal process such as court order, subpoena, search warrant, or law enforcement request.
