Privacy & Security

Thank you for using CATA’s website. This privacy policy is intended to communicate the methods by which we collect and use the personal information you provide to us. CATA is committed to the security and privacy of all customer information.

Information collection

CATA collects information on the site in two different ways. First, we use server logs to collect anonymous, aggregate information (such as browser type, ISP, IP address, referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, number of clicks) from all visitors to the site. Our site also uses a standard technology called "cookies" to collect information about how the site is used. Information gathered through cookies may include the pages viewed and the amount of time spent on the CATA website. This type of information is typically not linked to any personally identifiable information and is used primarily in the aggregate to generate statistical reports that help us to refine and improve the site.

Second, we require certain information when you use various services on the site. For example, when you contact us by email, we may collect your email address and any other personal information you provide. When you subscribe to any of our notification systems you must provide your name and a valid email address. If you purchase items from the online pass sales area, CATA and its payment-processing partner will collect additional information necessary for payment and delivery. If you apply for employment or to be included on the bidders’ registration list through the site, we will collect information such as your name, address and other employment or business-related information.

Personal information of children under 13

CATA complies with the requirements of the Children’s’ Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and the FTC's Rule interpreting COPPA (16 CFR § 512). The site is not directed to children, and we do not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information on the site from children under 13 years of age.

Use of your personal information

CATA does not sell, rent or disclose personally identifiable information to any third party not affiliated with CATA. We may need to disclose some information to service providers who may assist us in such areas as data storage. However, users should be aware that CATA is a public agency and personal information provided to CATA may be subject to disclosure in accordance with public records laws. Information in anonymous, aggregated form may be shared freely. CATA will not use your personal information to send you unsolicited commercial offers. However, we may need to contact you for certain purposes, for example, in response to your inquiry.

We will disclose personal information when required by law, or if we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on us; (b) protect and defend our rights; or (c) protect the rights, property and other interests of our users or others.

Links

The CATA website contains links to other sites. CATA is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements and terms/conditions of use for each and every site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by the CATA website.

Security

We take reasonable precautions to protect your information. For example, we encrypt certain communications through our site with 128-bit encryption — the industry standard for strong encryption. However, given the nature of the Internet and the fact that network security measures are not infallible, we cannot guarantee the security of your information.

If you have any questions about the security at our site, you can send a message to the webmaster at info@cata.org.

Correcting, updating, deleting and deactivating personal information

If your information changes, you may contact us to correct, update or delete and deactivate our records. You may contact our Customer Service Representatives at info@cata.org to do so.

Notification of changes

CATA may modify the terms of this privacy policy at any time by updating this posting. If this privacy policy changes materially so that we are going to use your personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, or if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that affect customer information already stored in our database, we will prominently post a notice on the main page and other pages to alert you about the change. You should check the site periodically to remain informed of the latest version of the privacy policy.
