Privacy Policy

Forward Ohio places a high priority on protecting your privacy. This privacy policy was created in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to the privacy of our members and website users. This policy explains what types of information is collected by the Forward Ohio website, and how this information is used.

What personally identifiable information is collected – “opt in” and “opt out”

Individuals that voluntarily sign up to receive Forward Ohio e-communications “opt in” to provide us with contact information (such as name and e-mail address). We use your personal information to provide you with personalized service: to process your registration request, provide you with services and communications that you have requested; to send e-mail alerts and other communications to you; to answer your requests; etc. You may choose to opt out at any time, which will cease all communications from us.

Non-personally identifiable information collected

From time to time, we may also collect general, non-personal, statistical information that is generated automatically as visitors navigate through the site. We may use a standard feature found in browser software called a “cookie” and other tracking technologies to measure user interests and traffic patterns. We collect and aggregate this data to track which areas of the site are most popular, and to improve the site services and enhance visitors’ experience with the site. Please be assured this aggregate data will in no way personally identify you, or any other visitors, to the site.

Visitor information we collect may be collected directly by us, or it may be collected by a third-party website hosting provider, or another third-party service provider, on our behalf.
