Adopted January 2007
In this policy, we use the terms “California State PTA,” “we,” “our,” and “us” to refer to California State PTA. We use the terms “you” and “your” to refer to PTA members and visitors of capta.org.
For more than 100 years, the California State PTA name has been a trusted symbol of service and reliability, and we remain dedicated to those principles today.
California State PTA understands how important privacy is to our members and our customers. We are committed to protecting privacy and want to make sure that everyone understands how information is used, whether provided over the phone, in person, over the Internet, or through the mail.
It is important to note that we do not share member information with other companies for the purpose of marketing, unless specifically requested in advance. California State PTA does not sell or rent member information to telemarketers, mailing list brokers, or any other companies. No action or instruction is needed; we protect privacy automatically.
We share your personal information only with companies we have officially approved and selected to provide services for PTA members or which support California State PTA operations. Our contracts with these companies require them to keep member information strictly confidential, and allow them to use the information only to offer the contracted services mutually agreed upon to California State PTA members.
California State PTA may also disclose personal information when required to do so by law or when such action is necessary or appropriate to comply with legal process served on California State PTA, to protect and defend the rights or property of California State PTA, or to protect the personal safety of users of capta.org. We reserve the right to contact the appropriate authorities at our discretion when visitors’ activities appear to be illegal or inconsistent with our policies.
Finally, California State PTA may sometimes share aggregate statistics and non-personal information with the media, government agencies, advertisers, and other third parties. For example, we may publish statistics on the number of members in various unit, council or district PTAs, or the number of visitors to capta.org. These aggregate statistics do not allow anyone to identify member names or other personal information.
In order to protect personal information, California State PTA uses technologies and processes such as encryption, access control procedures, network firewalls, physical security and other measures.
