Our Practices Regarding Privacy
When you visit our website, we collect information on the efficiency and working of our site. The types of information your browser or Internet session automatically sends us each time you visit one of our sites, which we automatically collect, include:
• Your browser, e.g., Safari, Chrome, Edge, Firefox
• Your Internet domain, e.g., Gmail, Comcast, Bellsouth
• Your computer's operating system, e.g., Windows, Macintosh, UNIX, Linux
• Your navigation path, i.e., the URLs of where you come to our site from, which of our pages you visit and where you go as you leave.
• Our IP address
This information lets us see how users find our sites and it tells us which pages users visit most frequently so we can make our websites more useful. We keep this information for an indefinite amount of time to improve the operation of our site and to provide better services to our users.
In addition to the data that your browser or Internet session sends us automatically, we may also collect personal data only as needed for us to deliver information about our products, services and special offers. Your personal data includes information such as: name, address, telephone number, email address and other data collected that would directly or indirectly identify you.
What information we collect about you
Much of what you likely consider personal data is collected directly from you when you:
(1) create an account (ex: name, address, phone number);
(2) complete contact forms or request newsletters or other information from us (i.e., email); or
(3) participate in contests and surveys or participate in activities we promote that might require information about you.
How we use information we collect
We strongly believe in both minimizing the data we collect and limiting its use and purpose to only that (1) for which we have been given permission, (2) as necessary to deliver the information you’ve requested, or (3) as we might be required or permitted for legal compliance or other lawful purposes.
When inquiries and/or feedback are e-mailed or mailed to us, we store the question and the e-mail address/mailing address information so that we can respond. Unless otherwise required by laws, we do not identify who sends questions or comments to our website or mailing address. We will not obtain information that will allow us to personally identify you when you visit our site, unless you chose to provide such information to use.
Information that you consider confidential should not be uploaded or sent to OurCalvert.org.
How we store, secure and retain information we collect
We use data hosting service providers in the United States to host the information we collect and we use technical measures to secure your data. While we implement safeguards designed to protect your information, no security system is impenetrable and due to the inherent nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that data, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care, is absolutely safe from intrusion by others. How long we keep information we collect about you depends on the type of information. We follow generally accepted standards to store and protect the personal data we collect, both during transmission and once received and stored. We retain personal data only for as long as necessary to provide the Services you have requested and thereafter for a variety of legitimate legal or business purposes.
‘Do Not Track’ notifications
Some browsers have incorporated "Do Not Track" (DNT) features that can send a signal to the websites you visit indicating you do not wish to be tracked. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, our Services do not currently respond to browser DNT signals. You can use the range of other tools we provide to control data collection and use, including the ability to opt out of receiving marketing from us as described above.

Different agencies and organizations have different methods of following up with you on information requests. Some send brochures in the mail, others reply via email or some may contact you by telephone. By using our service to request information from the organizations listed on the site, you are giving permission to OurCalvert.org and these parties (or their partners and vendors) to contact you using the methods of their choice, to fulfill your information request, notwithstanding your possible listing in the National Do-Not-Call Registry.
