This Privacy Policy is also intended to provide you and any person helping you visit, access, or use the Site (whether as a buyer, seller, visitor, or otherwise) (collectively, “you” or “your”) with an overview of the following:

This Privacy Policy applies to information collected through the Site.  Carefully read this Privacy Policy in its entirety.

When you create or log into an account through the Site, you are automatically accepting and agreeing to the most-recent version of this Privacy Policy, as well as the Site’s Terms of Use.

As used herein, the term “personal information” means information that would allow someone to contact you physically or online (e.g., your name, physical address, telephone number, e-mail address, or social security number); and the term “non-personal information” means any information other than personal information that CAF may collect from you.

Furthermore, if you are under eighteen (18) years of age, then you (or your parent or legal guardian) may at any time request that CAF remove content or information about you that is posted on the Site.  Please submit any such request (“Request for Removal of Minor Information”) to any one of the following:

Please note that the aforementioned removal does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of such content or information posted on the Site.

Also, please note that CAF is not required to erase or otherwise eliminate, or to enable erasure or elimination of, such content or information in certain circumstances, such as, for example, when an international, federal, state, or local law, rule, or regulation requires CAF to maintain the content or information; when the content or information is stored on or posted to the Site by a third party other than you (including any content or information posted by you that was stored, republished, or reposted by the third party); when CAF anonymizes the content or information, so that you cannot be individually identified; when you do not follow the aforementioned instructions for requesting the removal of the content or information; and when you have received compensation or other consideration for providing the content or information.

The foregoing is a description of CAF’s voluntary practices concerning the collection of personal information through the Site from certain minors, and is not intended to be an admission that CAF is subject to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, the Federal Trade Commission’s Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule(s), or any similar international, federal, state, or local laws, rules, or regulations.

In addition, if you or a third party sends CAF a comment, message or other communication (such as, by way of example only, e-mail, letter, fax, phone call, or voice message) about you, your activities on or through the Site, then CAF may collect any personal or non-personal information provided therein or therewith.

In addition, your name, user name, and/or contact information may be disclosed through the Site, CAF’s online social media pages, and/or in connection with CAF’s display or performance of photographs, images, and/or videos of you on or through the Site or CAF’s online social media pages.

In connection with any transaction that you conduct through the Site and/or CAF’s direct mailing program (e.g., the payment of any subscription or membership fees, the purchase or sale of any products, the payment of donations), you may be asked to supply certain information relevant to the transaction, including, without limitation, your credit card number and expiration date, your billing address, your shipping address, your phone number, and/or your e-mail address.  By submitting such information, you grant CAF without charge the irrevocable, unencumbered, universe-wide, and perpetual right to provide such information to third parties (e.g., payment processing companies, buyers on the Site, and sellers on the Site) for the purpose of facilitating the transaction.

All online credit card transactions occur through online payment processing application(s) found on the Site or third-party website(s) accessible through the Site which are provided by a third-party payment processing vendor(s) (the “Payment Processing Vendor”).  CAF’s relationship with the Payment Processing Vendor, if any, is merely contractual in nature, is nothing more than a third-party vendor to CAF, and is in no way subject to CAF’s direction or control; thus, their relationship is not, and should not be construed as, one of fiduciaries, franchisors-franchisees, agents-principals, employers-employees, partners, joint venturers, or the like.  For more information about the Payment Processing Vendor, please contact CAF in accordance with the procedures set forth in section 14 below.

8.              Third Party Applications and Networks.

The Site and/or any communications sent through or as a function of the Site may contain links to third-party websites, networks, platforms, servers, and/or applications.  To the fullest extent permitted by law, CAF is not responsible for, and you hereby release CAF from any and all liability which may arise from, such third party websites, networks, platforms, servers, and applications (including, without limitation, the privacy policies and practices of such third-party websites, networks, platforms, servers, and applications).

You may have the opportunity to access the Site using your online user accounts with certain third-party websites, networks, platforms, servers, or applications, which may be subject to separate privacy policies pertaining to those third-party websites, networks, platforms, servers, or applications.  CAF may also collect information from those third-party websites, networks, platforms, servers, or applications (such as, for example, your name, gender, date of birth, and personal interests, when you “like” or click links provided by or through those third-party websites, networks, platforms, servers, or applications, and other information available through your online account or page with those third-party websites, networks, platforms, servers, or applications).  It is your responsibility to carefully read, accept, and comply with the relevant terms of use and privacy policies associated with those third-party websites, networks, platforms, servers, and applications.

9.              Security.

CAF implements security measures to help protect the personal information it collects through the Site.

To help maintain the security of your personal information, CAF asks that you please notify it immediately of any unauthorized visit, access, or use of the Site or the loss or unauthorized use of your online account access information for the Site (e.g., user name, or password).
