The California Small Business Association ("CSBA") recognizes that its relationship with its many members is based on trust. The information our members provide to us frequently contains private information and therefore we provide a high standard of safekeeping and restricted use.
CSBA takes every precaution to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the Web site, your information is protected. When you enter sensitive information, such as a credit card number, the information is encrypted with industry standard encryption software—SSL. While on a secure page, such as our membership application, the lock icon displays on the top right hand side of the page titled “Checkout Basket” when using Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer.
INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE:
CSBA collects information about you to help perform its primary function and to maintain its website. The primary source of this information is in the membership application and your communications with us, and normally includes your name, business name, address, phone number, and email address. We also may have information about you that you have authorized third parties to provide.
COOKIES AND LINKS:
Cookies are small files stored on your computer, phone, or other digital devices containing information collected by your use. There are other such tracking technologies at play based on your use. While they are generally used to provide better and customized services; you can accept or decline these tracking technologies. You can set your browsers to automatically decline all cookies or to indicate when a cookie or tracking technology is attempting to attach to your device. You can also simply delete them.
There is always a risk that un-encrypted email will be viewed by third parties without yours or our permission or knowledge. If you use email for confidential information, you do so at your own risk, as CSBA is not responsible for the security of email.
