Protecting your private information is our priority. This Statement of Privacy discloses the privacy practices for Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement (CNHA) web platforms including and any mobile device applications developed by CNHA.

The website and CNHA mobile device applications may be herein referred to as the Services for the purposes of this statement. Unless otherwise noted, all references to Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement include and CNHA.

The website is a non-profit capacity-building services site. Any mobile device applications developed by CNHA are for the purposes of supplementing the website and CNHA’s non-profit programs. By using the Services you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

Practices described will include:

  1. What personally identifiable information is collected from you through the website, how it is used and with whom it may be shared.
  2. The security procedures in place to protect from the misuse of your information.
  3. What types of non-personal information are automatically collected by the Services.
  4. How you can contact us regarding this Privacy Policy and your information.

Collection of your Personal Information
CNHA does not collect any personal information about you unless you voluntarily provide such information, such as through newsletter signups or application forms. The information collected is never sold or shared to third parties. We may use your information to send you additional notices about CNHA services or updates only.

Sharing Information in Extenuating Circumstances
CNHA does not sell, rent or lease its user information or email lists to third parties.

CNHA may, however, disclose personal information without notice in the event of extenuating circumstances where such disclosure is required by law, or is done in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to protect and defend the rights, property, and employees of CNHA and the personal safety of users of the website, users of CNHA mobile device applications or the public.

Automatically Collected Technical Information
Information about your computer hardware and software may be automatically collected by CNHA. This information can include your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This technical information is solely used for the operation of the website service, to maintain quality of the service and to provide general statistics regarding the use of the website or mobile device applications developed by CNHA.

The CNHA Services may contain links to other sites, such as partner non-profits. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they follow links to other websites and to read the privacy policies of such other sites.

CNHA takes precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via our web forms, your information is protected both online and offline. CNHA secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure by using SSL Protocol. You can confirm that your connection to the site is encrypted and secure when seeing the “lock” icon next to the URL in your browser address bar. Clicking this icon will allow you to view the SSL certificate.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, newsletter distribution or email correspondence) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Unfortunately, even with the above practices in action, no data transmission over the Internet or wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. We strive to take appropriate security members to protect against unauthorized access, but we must emphasize your understanding of this nature of Internet communications. By using the website or CNHA mobile device applications, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations inherent to the Internet which are beyond our control; and (b) security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and CNHA through this Site, cannot be guaranteed.
