CharlestonPros Privacy Policy

Effective as of October 1, 2018


We've created this Privacy Policy to explain how we collect, use, disclose and protect your information, including any non-public personal information. This policy applies to information we collect when you use our websites, attend our events, or communicate with us (collectively, "Services") or otherwise interact with us as described below.

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of this policy, and in some cases, we may provide you with additional notice (such as by adding a statement to the homepages of our websites or by sending you an email notification). We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy whenever you interact with us to stay informed about our information practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy.

This privacy policy applies to the Services provided by the Charleston Digital Corridor Foundation ("CDCF," "we" or "us").

Disclosure of Information

We may disclose any information we collect about current and former customers, including non-public personal information, to affiliates and non-affiliated third parties as follows:

We may also share aggregated or de-identified Information, which cannot reasonably be used to identify you. For example, we may share charts or maps that use zip codes to show the geographic dispersion of member companies or event attendees within the region.

Third-Party Payment Processor

We use a third party payment processor to process payments made to us. In connection with the processing of such payments, we do not retain any sensitive financial information such as credit card numbers.
