This Privacy Policy applies to https://www.icf-chicago.org (hereinafter, "us", "we", or "https://www.icf-chicago.org"). We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting personally identifiable information you may provide us through the Website. We have adopted this privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") to explain what information may be collected on our Website, how we use this information, and under what circumstances we may disclose the information to third parties.

- Website Visitors
Like most website operators, ICF Chicago collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. ICF Chicago's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how ICF Chicago's visitors use its website. From time to time, ICF Chicago may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
ICF Chicago also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://www.icf-chicago.org blog posts. ICF Chicago only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

- Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to ICF Chicago's websites choose to interact with ICF Chicago in ways that require ICF Chicago to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that ICF Chicago gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at https://www.icf-chicago.org to provide a username and email address.

- Security
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

- Advertisements
Ads appearing on our website may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by ICF Chicago and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.
