Web Privacy Statement

Collecting and using personal information
Welcome to the Linking Cowlitz County (Linking Cowlitz) website. We appreciate your interest in us. Linking Cowlitz County is a collaboration of three area Drug-Free Coalitions, Longview Anti-Drug Coalition, Kelso STOP Coalition and Castle Rock C.A.R.E. Coalition. When you visit and navigate our pages, we will not collect personal information about you unless you provide us that information voluntarily. Linking Cowlitz will not sell, license, transmit or disclose this information outside of Linking Cowlitz unless

(a) expressly authorized by you,

(b) necessary to enable Linking Cowlitz contractors or agents to perform certain functions for us,

(c) required or permitted by law.

In all cases, we will disclose the information consistent with applicable laws and regulations and we will require the recipient to protect the information and use it only for the purpose it was provided.

By “personal information,” we mean data that is unique to an individual, such as a name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number. From time to time, we may request personal information from you at our sites in order to deliver requested materials to you, respond to your questions, or deliver a product or service.

Your e-mail
We welcome your comments or questions about our website and have provided an e-mail contact form for that purpose. We will share your comments and questions with those employees most capable of addressing your questions and concerns.

Please note that your e-mail, like most, if not all, non-encrypted Internet e-mail communications, may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users, without your knowledge and permission, while in transit to us. For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use e-mail to communicate information to us that you consider confidential. If you wish, you may contact us instead via telephone at the numbers provided on our contact page.

Linking to other sites
From time to time, Linking Cowlitz websites may provide links to other websites, not owned or controlled by Linking Cowlitz, that we think might be useful or of interest to you. We cannot, however, be responsible for the privacy practices used by other website owners or the content or accuracy of those other websites. Links to various non-Linking Cowlitz websites do not constitute or imply endorsement by Linking Cowlitz of these websites, any products or services described on these sites, or of any other material contained in them.

Linking Cowlitz has adopted and adheres to stringent security standards designed to protect non-public personal information against accidental or unauthorized access or disclosure. Among the safeguards that Linking Cowlitz has developed for this site are administrative, physical and technical barriers that together form a protective firewall around the information stored at this site.

Changes to this statement
Linking Cowlitz may change this statement from time to time; when updates are made, the privacy policy version date (located at the bottom of this policy) will also be updated to reflect that a revision occurred. We encourage you to periodically reread this policy to see if there have been any changes that may affect you. This statement is not intended to and does not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any party.
