Information Gathering

We use IP addresses (the Internet address of your computer) to help diagnose problems with our servers and to administer our web site. For instance, we run statistical software to identify which parts of our Web site are most heavily used and which portion of our audience comes from within the Catholic Charities network. But, we do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable.

Use of Information

While aggregate statistical reports may be generated based on Web usage, no personally identifiable information will ever be disseminated to any unaffiliated third party. Any personally identifiable information that is collected is used for the purposes of official Catholic Charities business only.

You may request details of personal information complied about you, correct such information, or ask Catholic Charities to delete your personal information from the Catholic Charities database of users of the site by contacting Catholic Charities at


All official Catholic Charities web servers have appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures in place to safeguard and secure all information we collect online. Furthermore, we use encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data.
