General Information

In general, you can visit the Site on the World Wide Web (“website”) without telling CSR who you are or providing the organization with any personally identifiable information. However, CSR collects the domain names (not the email addresses unless you choose to provide your email address) of all visitors to its Site to gather various data, including the number of visits, pages visited, and average time spent on the Site. CSR uses this information to continually improve the convenience and functionality of the Site.

CSR may tailor its offers to you based on information you provide when you purchase various products and services, including from the organization’s online surveys, from information that may indicate your purchasing preferences and lifestyle, as well as information available from external sources, including demographic and census data. With your consent, Children's Services of Roxbury, Inc. may also share your email address with other reputable companies so they can send you product and services offers that may be of interest to you. You will be offered an opportunity to restrict access to your email address if you object to the use of your email address by any party other than Children's Services of Roxbury, Inc.

Limited Information Sharing with Third Parties

Children's Services of Roxbury, Inc. is committed to protecting your privacy. The organization will only share Your Information with third parties in accordance with your instructions and in order to provide specific services to you.

This business partner does not retain, share, or store any personally identifiable information except to provide this service and is bound by a strict confidentiality agreement which limits their use of such information.

CSR may share aggregated and anonymous demographic information with its business partners but no such information can be linked directly to Your Information.

Although CSR will use every reasonable effort to preserve your privacy, the organization may need to disclose Your Information, including personally identifiable information, when required by federal, state local or other governmental regulations or laws. In such cases, CSR will use reasonable efforts to disclose only the information required by law enforcement personnel.
