Specific Types of Information Collection and Use

Registration/Contact Information
In order to use some CFA Foundation websites or web pages, a user may first have to complete a registration or contact-type form and provide certain types of information, often consisting of contact information such as name, address, and email address and sometimes including additional information. This information may be used by us to process a user’s online contribution or to provide the user with services and products which the user has requested such as email communications or written materials. We may also use this information to contact the user. Additionally, the information may be used to provide the user with immediate access to online information pertinent to that user, such as a personalized online voters’ guide. For CFA Foundation’s 2016 website, a user is required to provide his or her first name, last name, street address, city, state, zip code, and email address. That information is used by KnowWho, Inc., with whom CFA Foundation has contracted to provide a Candidate Directory Web Service, to identify for the user the state legislative and federal candidates who will appear on the user’s November 2016 General Election ballot.
