Welcome to CallofDutyEnowment.org! As a non-profit public benefit corporation, the Call of Duty Endowment (CODE) is committed to help soldiers transition to civilian careers after their military service. CODE focuses its resources on assisting organizations that provide job placement and training to veterans, as well as engaging the media and public forums to raise awareness about the issue. Activision Blizzard launched the organization in October 2009, with a commitment to donate and raise millions of dollars for the cause.
The Call of Duty Endowment respects the privacy rights of our online visitors, and we have adopted this Online Privacy Statement to guide how we collect, store, and use the information you provide to us online.
What information does CallofDutyEndowment.org collect?
CODE only collects personal information from you on a voluntary basis. When you submit personal information to CODE, it will usually take the form of: (1) Web site registration; (2) share your story or comments; and/or, (3) online submission of your resume for job openings. The information we collect may include personal information such as your name, email address, phone number, and home address.
Web site Registration
CODE may collect personal information from you when registering as a CallofDutyEndowment.org member, including your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, gender and birth date. Information collected from those who register on our Web site is used to provide registrants the benefits associated with such registration (e.g., subscription to newsletter or access to the latest endowment news).
CODE allows for the online submission of resumes. Personal information collected in association with resumes will be used solely for the purpose of accepting and evaluating candidate submissions for job postings at Activision Blizzard, Inc. This information may be shared within the company and is not subject to the terms of this Online Privacy Statement.
Whatever the activity may be, we will only collect information to the extent deemed reasonably necessary to fulfill your requests and our legitimate business objectives.
What happens if I refuse to provide my personal information?
If you do not want to submit personal information when requested, you will not be able to participate in certain activities. In addition, your refusal to submit personal information may limit our ability to respond to your inquiry in a timely fashion. However, you do not need to provide personal information to CODE in order to use our Web site.
We also keep track of Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer every time you log on to the Internet.
Who is collecting my personal information and how will it be used?
The information you submit to our Web site is collected and used by CODE as set forth above.
From time to time, however, CODE may employ vendors to collect personal information on CODE’s behalf. These vendors provide internal support to www.callofdutyendowment.org by operating some of the services we provide you. When requesting these services, you may be asked to supply your name, address, email address, and/or other personal information. Although these vendors, not CODE, collect the personal information you provide when requesting such services, CODE still requires that they adhere to CODE’s stated privacy policies. This means that our vendors will never share your personal information with other parties except for CODE.
With whom does CODE share my personal information?
At this time, CODE does not share your personal information with outside third parties.
Notwithstanding, we may disclose personal information in the good faith belief that we are required to do so by law, including but not limited to disclosure to law enforcement or other government officials in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose you or us to legal liability.
Does CODE collect personal information from children under 13?
We do not knowingly collect or store any personally identifiable information such as name, address, or email address from children under 13.
From time to time, certain portions of this Web site may allow all users (including children under 13) to disclose a limited amount of personal information without first telling us their age or getting their parent’s permission. Such portions of our Websites operate activities or provide services in a way that does not require prior parental consent.
What safeguards does CODE use to protect my personal information?
CODE ensures data quality such as the accuracy of information obtained from our Web site visitors. CODE has also taken steps to assure that all information collected will remain secure and in its original form, i.e. free from any alteration. Access to all personal information is strictly controlled. In addition, we take reasonable steps to assure that vendors who collect personal information on our behalf provide sufficient protection of personal information.
By using this site, you signify your assent to the CODE’s Online Privacy Statement. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use this site. We reserve the right to make changes in this policy, and please check back from time to time to ensure you are aware of any changes in our data collection practices. If we make a material change to this policy, we will post a notice of the change on our Web site. Your continued use of our Web site will signify your acceptance of these changes.
