            Information Collection and Use: we do not retain any personal information from users browsing this website. Only aggregate data, such as number of hits to the website and individual pages, are retained.  For those who choose to donate money via our website, we ask for their name, address, and email address so that we may acknowledge any donations for tax deduction purposes. We take reasonable efforts to safeguard this information and we do not share it with any other organization.

           Credit Card Information: we do not collect any credit card information.  For those pages that allow users to donate, we use a third party service from PayPal.  Therefore any credit card information that is entered is managed by them and is not visible to us nor does PayPal share it with us. See PayPal's privacy policy for how they handle personal information.

            Email: email addresses voluntarily provided to us by Council members and others are never given to any outside organization for any purpose.  Internally, such email addresses are used solely for distribution of our quarterly newsletter, The Helm, for announcements of Council events, and to inform members of their membership status.  Upon request via our "contact us" web page, we will remove an email address from our list.

In addition, some embedded video content carry its own cookie.  Currently, only two of our web site pages have such a cookie; that is the USS Connecticut home page that has two embedded YouTube videos and the "slide presentation" page that has one cookie.  Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies, or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.  We have set up our site such that it will work properly whether you accept or reject cookies.
