COHV is dedicated to protecting the privacy of members and visitors to its website.
We do not gather personal information about you except that which you provide us for input and storage in our membership database. Storage of this information is password secure. Only such information as you give authorization will be displayed in the on-line database for our membership. Visitors to the COHV site do not have access to this database. Certain members involved with COHV initiatives i.e. COHV Association and its committees, etc. will be given specific notice before gathering and/or displaying any personal information, i.e. name, photo or e-mail address. We will explain what information is being gathered and how it will be used. You have the right to refuse to have this information gathered, displayed or transferred for marketing purposes.
We do not sell our users’ personal information to anyone for any reason. We do not display personal information without our users’ permission. When posting resumes, our users decide which companies may have access to their resumes. All users should be aware, however, that when they voluntarily display or distribute personal information (such as their email address), that information can be collected and used by others. This may result in unsolicited messages from third parties, for which COHV is not responsible.
COHV monitors general information about your internet visit, such as:
- the domain of your Internet service provider, i.e. “xyz123.com” or ” xyz123.ca” and the IP address of the computer accessing the website, such as “xyz-55”
- the type and version of browser, i.e. MS Internet Explorer or Netscape, you are using to access the internet
- the type of operating system you are using, i.e. MS Windows, Macintosh, or Unix
- the date and time you visit our web site, the pages that you visit, the length of your visit, which page you access first, the address of website you were visiting immediately prior, if you linked to us from that website, etc.
Our sole use of this information is for statistical analysis, to assist us in making our site more useful and user-friendly to members and visitors. We may disclose this non-personal information to third parties, i.e. sponsors, clients or job advertisers and/or use it for auditing purposes. Again, this information is of a very general nature, it does not include personal, identifying details.
COHV’s website uses a feature called a ‘cookie’ to store browser information used by our servers when you log into the Members Only section. Cookies, by themselves, cannot be used to disclose the individual identity of any site user. If you opt not to accept cookies, you will not be able to access the members section of our site.
