Specific information regarding our data practices is detailed below.
Information that We Collect: Personal and Non-personal
We collect two types of information from visitors to the Site: (1) Personal Information; and (2) Non-Personal Information, such as your IP address or cookies.
When we use the term “Personal Information” we mean information we may collect that allows others to identify or contact you. For instance, we may collect your email address if you agree to receive newsletters and other information from us. We may also pair that with your address or location and other personal information that you provide to confirm that you are eligible to receive services from us and that the information we provide will likely be relevant to you.
Examples of personal information collected by this Site:
While you’re under no obligation to provide the information requested, if you decline to do so, we may be unable to provide you with certain services. If you do not want us to collect your Personal Information, please do not provide it to us.
“Non-Personal Information” can be technical information or it can be demographic information, such as your age, gender, zip code or other geolocation data, or interests. Non-Personal Information does NOT identify you personally. Here are some examples of the Non-Personal Information that is collected via the Site and a description of how this information is used:
The above list provides examples of the Non-Personal Information that is collected via the Site. We may collect the above Non-Personal Information from all visitors to our Site. If you do not want us to have access to this information, please do not visit our Site.
We use your Personal Information that is collected on the Site primarily for the following purposes:
Non-Personal Information is used as described above and in other ways as permitted by applicable laws, including combining Non-Personal Information with Personal Information.
For example, we may use Non-Personal Information and usage data to (i) create marketing analyses and reports showing how our users, as collective groups, interact with our services, (ii) develop reports that help us and other strategic third parties determine what interests our service users, as a group, or (iii) generally improve our program and service offerings. Such reports will be shared with the Center for New York City Neighborhoods, and third parties helping us to administer this Site and our services. However, such reports will not contain any Personal Information about you.
