Effective as of May, 2024

This Privacy Policy describes the practices of the Center for New York City Neighborhoods, Inc. (“us,” “we,” “our”) and applies to information that we collect through sites, products, apps, and services within our control that link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, “Services”). BY USING OUR SERVICES, YOU CONSENT TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY AND TO OUR PROCESSING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION FOR THE PURPOSES STATED BELOW.

Specific information regarding our data practices is detailed below.

Information that We Collect: Personal and Non-Personal

We collect two types of information from visitors to the Site: (1) Personal Information; and (2) Non-Personal Information, such as your IP address or cookies.

Personal Information

The term “Personal Information” in this policy means information we may collect that allows others to identify or contact you. For instance, we may collect your email address if you agree to receive newsletters and other information from us. We may also pair that with your address or location and other personal information that you provide to confirm that you are eligible to receive services from us and that the information we provide will likely be relevant to you.

Examples of personal information collected through our Services include, but are not limited to:

  • Email
  • Address
  • Phone Number (mobile and/or landline)

While you are under no obligation to provide the information requested, if you decline to do so, we may be unable to provide you with certain services.

Non-Personal Information

“Non-Personal Information” as used in this policy includes technical information and demographic information, such as your age, gender, zip code or other geolocation data, or interests. Here are some examples of the Non-Personal Information that is collected via our Services and a description of how this information is used:

Internet Protocol (IP) address – Your IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send you data – such as the web pages you view. We use this information to deliver our web pages to you upon request, to tailor our Services to the interests of our users and to measure traffic within our sites.

Web Beacons (also known as “clear gifs,” “web bugs” or “pixel tags”) – “Web Beacons” are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to allow us to count users who have visited certain pages of our sites and to help determine the effectiveness of our Services. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, web beacons can tell the sender whether and when an email has been opened. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on web pages.

Demographic Information – “Demographic Information” may be your gender, age, zip code and interests which may be automatically collected through our Services. We use this information to provide you with personalized services and to analyze trends to ensure the information provided through our Services meets your needs. Please note that we also consider aggregated information, which is not personally identifiable, to be Non-Personal Information.

The above list provides examples of the Non-Personal Information that is collected via our Services. We may collect the above Non-Personal Information from all users of our Services.Your use of our Services constitutes your consent to our collection of Non-Personal Information.

Non-Personal Information is used as described above and in other ways as permitted by applicable law.

For example, we may use Non-Personal Information and usage data to (i) create marketing analyses and reports showing how our users, as collective groups, interact with our services, (ii) develop reports that help us and other strategic third parties determine what interests our service users, as a group, or (iii) generally improve our program and service offerings. Such reports will be shared with third parties helping us to administer our Services. However, such reports will not contain any Personal Information about you.

We use Non-Personal Information collected through our Services in the manner disclosed above. We may share this Non-Personal Information with third parties helping us administer our Services.

For e-mails, you can opt out by going to the link provided at the bottom of any e-mail you receive from us and opting out of receiving information from us. We will process your unsubscribe request as soon as possible, but please be aware that in some circumstances you may receive a few more messages until the unsubscribe is processed.

If you respond to any interactive advertisement or offer by a third party (whether via an e-mail, message or otherwise), or if you request information about a product, program or service offered by a third party, then your Personal Information will be disclosed to such third party. We cannot control, and make no representations about, the collection or use of your information by such third parties. If you choose to register for or subscribe to any such third party product or service, any further correspondence between you and such third party including, without limitation, any resulting contractual agreements, are solely between you and the advertiser/third party. We will not be responsible for upholding any applicable terms, conditions, representations or warranties made by the advertiser/third party in connection therewith and shall otherwise have no liability associated with your interaction with such third party.


If you have any concerns regarding the accuracy of information that we may have collected about you and would like access to such information, please contact us at


We consider the confidentiality and security of your information to be paramount. We use physical, technical and administrative security measures to keep your Personal Information secure and confidential and will not provide it to third parties except to those entities helping administer our Services, as required by law or as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy. However, the Internet is not a secure environment, and we cannot 100% guarantee the security of your information; there is some risk that an unauthorized third party may find a way to circumvent our security measures or that information transmitted over the Internet may be intercepted.

If we learn of a security system breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using our Services or providing Personal Information to us you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy and administrative issues relating to your use of our Services. We may post a notice on our site(s) if a security breach occurs. We may also send an email to you at the e-mail address you have provided to us in these circumstances or letter to the home address provided. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.


This statement applies solely to information collected through our Services. Our Services may contain links to other web sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these other web sites.


Please note that our Services do not support “Do Not Track” browser settings and do not currently participate in any “Do Not Track” frameworks that would allow us to respond to signals or other mechanisms from you regarding the collection of your Personal or Non-Personal Information.


In the event that all or part of our assets are sold or acquired by another party, or in the event of a merger, you grant us the right to assign the Personal and Non-Personal Information collected via our Services.


We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy as our services grow and improve or to respond to changing legal regulations or business concerns. When we do, we will also revise the “effective” date at the top of this Privacy Policy. For changes to this Privacy Policy that may be materially less restrictive on our use or disclosure of Personal Information you have provided to us, we will attempt to obtain your consent before implementing the change by sending a notice to the primary e-mail address we have on file or by placing a prominent notice on our site(s).
