Privacy Policy

The Kid Catch Foundation (KCF) Privacy Policy describes what information we collect about you and about your use of KCF services. It will explain the choices you have about how your personal information is used and how we protect that information.


This Privacy Policy applies to Web sites owned and operated by KCF that are intended for use by consumers for non-commercial personal purposes, including the mobile optimized versions of these sites.


Information Collected About You

Personal Information

For certain KCF Web Sites, you may be required to submit Personal Information. “Personal Information” means information that we can use to identify or contact you, such as your email address, or health information.

KCF will store your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. KCF will not make any use of your personal information beyond the permitted uses in this Privacy Policy unless you provide such additional consent.


Kid Catch Directory Treatment Tracker

KCF conducts online surveys to gather information about mental health providers and the effectiveness of treatment.  When participating in a survey, we ask you to enter Personal Information such as your email address and health information. The Personal Information you submit in a survey may be used by KCF, as described below, to measure the type of mental health services that are available and the effectiveness of those services. When KCF surveys collect Personal Information we will not knowingly accept participants who are under the age of 13.


Emails You Send to KCF

This Privacy Policy does not apply to information, ideas, concepts or inventions that you send to KCF by email. If you want to keep information, ideas, concepts or inventions private or proprietary, do not send them in an email to KCF.


Non-Personal Information

Even if you do not provide any Personal Information to KCF, we collect Non-Personal Information about your use of the KCF Web Sites. “Non-Personal Information” means information that we cannot use to identify or contact you.


Cookies and Web Beacons

We collect Non-Personal Information about your use of the KCF Web Sites through the use of cookies and web beacons. Cookies are small data files that are stored on the hard drive of the computer you use to view a web site. Web beacons are graphic image files imbedded in a web page used to monitor activity on a web page and send information back to its home server (which can belong to the host site, a network advertiser or some other third party).  The information may include the IP address, the URL of the page on which the web beacon is located, the type of browser that is accessing the site, and the ID number of any cookies on your computer previously placed by that server.


Non-Personal Information Collected by Third Parties

Sponsors or advertisers on the KCF Web Sites may use their own cookies, web beacons or other online tracking technologies in their advertisements and sponsored links. Their advertisements may be displayed on the KCF Web Sites or on other sites that you visit after you visit the KCF Web Sites. Some advertisers use companies other than KCF to serve their ads and to monitor users' responses to ads, and these ad servers may also collect Non-Personal Information through the use of cookies or web beacons on the KCF Web Sites.


What Choices Do I Have?

KCF may combine Personal and Non-Personal Information collected by KCF about you, and may combine this information with information from external sources.


Research and Measurement Activities

Information that KCF collects about you may be combined by KCF with other information available to KCF through third parties for research and measurement purposes, including measuring the effectiveness of content or advertising. This information from other sources may include age, gender, demographic, geographic, personal interests, product purchase activity or other information. We may report aggregate information, which is not able to be identified back to an individual user of the KCF Web Sites, to our current or prospective advertisers and other business partners. We do not sell or share any Personal Information with any third parties, except that contractors performing services on our behalf may be provided access to Personal Information when performing these services. These contractors agree not to use this information for any purpose other than performing services on our behalf.


With Whom Do We Share Your Information?

Except as described in this Privacy Policy or as specifically agreed to by you, KCF will not disclose any Personal Information it gathers from you through the KCF Web Sites. We may only release Personal Information to third parties (1) to comply with legal requirements such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order; or (2) in special cases, such as in response to a physical threat to you or others, to protect property or defend or assert legal rights. Also, we may disclose Personal Information as described below. We may share Non-Personal Information, including your browsing activity on KCF, with third party advertising service providers who may use this information, on our behalf, to help KCF deliver advertising on the KCF Web Sites as well as on other sites on the Internet.

In the event of a corporate change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, KCF reserves the right to transfer your Personal Information to the new party in control or the party acquiring assets. In the event of such a change, your Personal Information will continue to be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy unless any changes to the Privacy Policy are made in accordance with the section below that discusses “Changes to This Privacy Policy.”


Disclosures to KCF Contractors

KCF contractors sometimes have limited access to your Personal and Non-Personal Information in the course of providing products or services to KCF. These contractors may include vendors that provide us with technology, services, data analysis, research, advertising and marketing assistance in our operation of the KCF Web Sites. We contractually require that our contractors protect the privacy of your Personal and Non-Personal Information consistent with this Privacy Policy.


Disclosures to Third Party Web Sites

KCF Web Sites may contain links to or advertisements for web sites hosted and operated by a company other than KCF ("Third Party Web Sites"). KCF does not disclose your Personal Information to these Third Party Web Sites without your consent, but you should be aware that any information you disclose to the other web sites once you access these other web sites is not subject to this Privacy Policy.
