Privacy Policy

Questions regarding this statement should be directed to the CommunityLink™ Webmaster by sending an email to: This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and subject to the terms of our User Agreement.

Our Privacy Notice

Individual privacy and privacy on the Internet is of the utmost concern to CommunityLink™. We are committed to keeping private information private. We collect information on the Member's registration process (personal contact information, such as your email address). We also collect information 1) to track merchants and the rebates they offer, 2) to identify the contributions Members generate as a result of shopping at participating merchants, and 3) to deliver the contributions to the nonprofit organizations.

How We Collect Information

Many of the ways in which you interact with our site allow us to learn more about you. We collect and store statistics and other information about the online activities of our visitors on an aggregated (collective) basis. For example, we track the number of people who view each page to learn which features are the most popular. But in these and almost all other instances, we DO NOT obtain personally identifiable information about you. In those instances where we do collect personally identifiable information, you have the option of choosing to make it available for other services we provide.

How We Use and Disclose Your Information

As a general practice, we do not sell your personally identifiable information to third parties. We use your information on an aggregated basis to do such things as operate our site, enhance our site and sell and deliver advertising. We also use this aggregated and personally identifiable data to enhance your on-site experience by displaying content and marketing messages that we believe will be of interest to you. We disclose aggregated information about our site to third parties. We do not sell your email addresses or your name and personal demographic information to mass marketers. However, we will explicitly tell you when the data we are collecting on that page will be shared with third parties, in which case those disclosures shall override anything to the contrary in this policy. For example, before you submit answers to questions we ask in an advertiser-sponsored promotion, we will tell you that your answers will be shared with that advertiser. Note that some online activities you choose to do necessarily lead to disclosure of your personally identifiable information to third parties,
such as when you choose to email a merchant or business service. In some cases we use your personally identifiable information to provide information
to you, such as newsletters that you request or information about special offers and incentives.

Controlling or Changing Your Information

You can access and update your personal information, by following the instructions on our web site.

Cookies and Other Tracking Methods

Cookies are small pieces of information stored on your hard drive, not on our site. We use cookies or, in a limited number of cases, IP addresses for a number of reasons. First, cookies allow you to store your password without having to constantly re-enter it. Second, cookies can also help us to tailor our Web site or message to better match your needs and interests. Third, cookies allow us to better understand how users use our site, which in turn helps us focus our resources on features that are most popular with our users. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but some parts of our site may not work properly if you do.

Other Sites

Please note that if you provide any information on your own or directly to parties who provide service to CommunityLink™, any merchants in our Directory or any other sites you encounter on the Internet (even if these sites are branded with our branding), different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the personal information you disclose to them. We encourage you to investigate and ask questions before disclosing information to third parties. This site may contain links to other sites, which may be of interest to CommunityLink™ members. We cannot be responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other web sites; however, CommunityLink™ will not disclose your personal information to third party sites.

Limits on Our Abilities

Although your privacy is very important to us, due to the existing legal regulatory and security environment, we cannot fully ensure that your private communications and other personally identifiable information will not be disclosed to third parties, such as the government, or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties that unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Additionally, in the unlikely event we need to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries, we can (and you authorize us to do so as part of the terms and conditions for using this site) disclose any information about you to private entities, law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate.


We use industry-standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers where appropriate. However, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet. We hope this policy clarifies our procedures regarding your personal information. We at CommunityLink™ encourage you to learn as much as you can about your privacy on the Internet.
