Information Collection and Use


Information Collection
CHANT is the sole owner of the information collected on WWW.CHANTVI.ORG. CHANT collects information from our users/customers at several different points on our Web site.

Email List

Users/customers are given the opportunity to opt-in to join our email list. The sole purpose of this list is to keep our customers informed and up-to-date with the happenings at CHANT.  We will not bombard your email in-box with emails, nor will we share or sell your email address with or to any other company or organization.
We will use this list to inform our customers of any specials, discounts, and new products and services being offered by our organization CHANT. At any time, users/customers can request to be removed from our email list.

Customer Reviews

We request information from the user/customer on our “Write A Review” form. A user must provide an email address that was registered with this site in order for them to upload a photo and post customer review. This registered email address is used for verification purposes only, and to prevent un-authorized posting and upload to our site

Bookings

CHANT will be implementing online booking functionality to our website in the very near future.

Profile

We do not store user/customer profile information. We do not use cookies, clear gifs, and/or third parties to create a profile of our users.  A profile is stored information that is kept on individual users that details their viewing preferences. 

Cookies

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s computer tied to information about the user. 
Some of our business partners use cookies on our site (for example, advertisers and affiliates).  However, we have no access to or control over these cookies, once we have given permission for them to set cookies for advertising. 

Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs)

Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. The main difference between the two is that clear gifs are invisible on the page and are much smaller, about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.

Third Party Advertising

This privacy statement covers the use of cookies by WWW.CHANTVI.ORG only and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers or affiliates. 

Log Files

Presently, we do not use log files.

Sharing


Legal Disclaimer

Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Web site.
These are the instances in which we will share users’ personal information:
We DO NOT Share Personal Information with Third Parties. 

Third Party Intermediaries

We use an outside credit card processing company (PayPal) to bill users for goods and services. Please read PayPal's privacy policy.
CHANT will be implementing online booking functionality to our website in the very near future.

Links

This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we, CHANT, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites.  We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site, to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information.  This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

Tell-A-Friend

If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend’s name and email address.  CHANT will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site.  CHANT stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program.

Security

This Web site takes every precaution to protect our users’ information.  When users submit sensitive information via the Web site, their information is protected both online and off-line.
When our registration/booking form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL.  While on a secure page, such as our booking form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when users are just ‘surfing’.  To learn more about SSL, and our web hosting company’s (crystaltech.com) privacy policy and security, follow this LINK.   
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line.  All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices.  Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. 
If users have any questions about the security at our Web site, users can send an email.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, the homepage, and other places we deem appropriate so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.  We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected. 
If, however, we are going to use users’ personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify users via email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner.  However, if users have opted out of all communication with the site, or deleted/deactivated their account, then they will not be contacted, nor will their personal information be used in this new manner.  In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our Web site notifying users of the change. In some cases where we post a notice we will also email users, who have opted to receive communications from us, notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices.
