Privacy Policy

Respecting the privacy of the visitors using www.CTTi.InnovationVillage.org (the "Site") is a major priority for us. The following statement will help you understand how we collect, use, and safeguard the personal information you provide to us on our website.

What Personal Information We Collect

When you visit www.CTTi.InnovationVillage.org you may provide us with two types of information: (1) personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis (voluntary registration) and (2) website use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our website.

CTTi gathers personally identifiable information about users of the Site through the registration process and other means such as user submissions. When you register, we will ask your name and email address. You may also provide us with additional information such as your work address along with information about your organization, and your role within the organization.

If you choose to attend workshops or other training sessions offered by CTTi or our partners, you may need to provide additional personal information and authorization for us to process your credit card payment. For example, in addition to the information above, you may need to provide your billing address, credit card number and expiration date, and name on the credit card

We also collect the email addresses of those who communicate with us via email and other information volunteered by our website visitors, such as survey information and/or site registrations.

How We Use Your Information

All information we collect is used to improve the content of our website and/or is used to notify consumers about updates to our website. The information is reviewed internally by our staff and used to better understand the content needs of registrants to our website. Our goal in collecting personal information and monitoring visitor traffic patterns is to provide you with the best available web experience and to keep you informed about CTTi programs and services that may be of interest. CTTi DOES NOT SHARE INFORMATION ABOUT ANY INDIVIDUAL USER WITH ANY THIRD PARTY WITHOUT HIS OR HER PERMISSION. However, we may disclose personal information if we have received your permission beforehand, or in very special circumstances such as when we believe that such disclosure is required by law.

Our Use of "Cookies"

"Cookies" are small files of data that reside on your computer and allow us to recognize you as an CTTi customer if you return to the CTTi site using the same computer and browser. We send a "session cookie" to your computer if and when you log in to your CTTi account by entering your email address and password. These cookies allow us to recognize you if you visit multiple pages in our site during the same session so that you don't need to re-enter your password multiple times. Once you log out or close your browser, these session cookies expire and no longer have any effect.

We also use longer-lasting cookies to display your email address on our sign-in form, so that you don't have to retype the email address each time when you log in to your CTTi account. Our cookie files are encoded so that your email address and other information can only be interpreted by CTTi.

However, please be aware that if you visit any non-CTTi.InnovationVillage.org website where you are prompted to log in or that are customizable, you may be required to accept cookies. CTTi does not control use of these cookies and expressly disclaims any responsibility for information collected through them.
