Scope of this Policy
Type of Information We Collect
We do not display Personal Information without your permission. You should be aware, however, that when you voluntarily display or distribute Personal Information (such as your e-mail address), that information can be collected and used by others. This may result in unsolicited messages from or other uses by third parties, for which CCI is not responsible.
We may collect the following general types of information about you when you visit our Sites: Personal Information, demographic information, behavioral information, and indirect information. Sometimes we collect combinations of all these types of information. In each case, it is indicated on the Site whether any personal or demographic data must be provided to use the requested service or not.
Personal Information is information that can be used to identify you, or any other individual to whom the information may relate, personally. We do not collect Personal Information unless you choose to provide it to us. Some examples of Personal Information that we collect in some areas of our Sites, depending on the services you use and local law, are: your name; address; e-mail address; telephone number; credit card number; contact information; billing information; and information about third parties, such as references or contacts, that you provide to us if you have their express written consent to do so.
Demographic information is information that is not unique to you in the sense that it refers to selected population characteristics, such as your ZIP code or postal code, age, preferences, gender, race or ethnicity, occupation, interests and favorites.
CCI also collects, or logs, certain other information that cannot directly identify you personally when you visit our Sites. This information includes your Internet Protocol ("IP") address and your domain name. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by the ISP computer through which you access the web and a domain name is the name of the ISP computer itself through which you access the web. CCI logs these IP addresses and domain names and aggregates them for system administration and to monitor the use of our Sites. We use the aggregated information to measure the number of visits to our Sites, the average time spent on our Sites, the number of pages viewed, and various other site use statistics. This monitoring helps us evaluate how our Sites are used and continuously improve the content we provide.
Offline Collection from You
Information Collected from Other Sources
How Information is Used
CCI may collect Personal Information from you at various places and through various mechanisms on the Sites. This may include, for example: when you fill out and submit forms; when you initiate payments to us through the Sites; when you participate in promotions, contests, or sweepstakes on the Sites; when you post to any interactive forum, bulletin board or chat room that we may make available on the Sites; when you register for e-mail communications; when you post a message on social media through the Sites; and when you submit a survey response, question or request to the Sites using a form or the e-mail address links on the Sites. If you give us permission, we may also use that information to make you aware of additional products and services of CCI or trusted third parties with whom we have alliances which may be of interest to you, or to contact you regarding site changes.
We use the information we gather on the web site for the purposes of providing our services, responding to any queries you may have, operating and improving the Sites, fostering a positive user experience and delivering the products and services that we offer. The information we gather on any Site may be shared within the CCI group of companies on a worldwide basis, including countries that might not have legislation that guarantees adequate protection with respect to your country of residence, in order to deliver these products and services.
By registering with CCI, by managing your profile, or expressly opting in when presented with choices, you have consented for us to use your information, subject to local law, in the following ways: to allow you to create an account; to create a profile for you based on information that you have provided to us; to contact you about Site updates, informational and service-related communications, including important security updates; to provide you additional communications, information, and promotions such as newsletters; to inform you of other products or services available from CCI or its affiliates; to enable you to provide feedback, to contact us and for us to respond to you; to conduct surveys, questionnaires, promotions and contests, and to provide the results thereof such as success stories and contest winners; to provide products and services that enable users to network, and post information on bulletin boards; to generate internal reports about the use of our Sites; and to provide ‘forward to a friend’ features.
Information you post in public areas of the Sites will be accessed, used, and stored by others around the world, including countries that might not have legislation that guarantees adequate protection with respect to your country of residence. By providing your Personal Information for inclusion in our database, you acknowledge that you consent to your information being used as described here. While CCI takes measures to safeguard your information from unauthorized access or inappropriate use by third parties, CCI does not control these third parties and we are not responsible for their use of information you post or otherwise make available in public areas of the Sites. Accordingly, you should ensure that you do not post sensitive information, including personality profiles, to any Site.
Disclosure of Information to Others
We disclose to third parties your Personal Information, combined personal, demographic, behavioral or indirect information, as set forth below.
Again, in each of these situations, the recipients of your data may potentially be located in any country in the world. If you are a resident in any EU member state, for example, you must be aware that the EU authorities do not generally consider that the regulations of non-EU countries ensure an adequate or equivalent level of protection as compared to the EU data protection regulations.
Posting Your Information to Public Areas of CCI
Please remember that if you post any of your Personal Information in public areas of CCI, such as in online forums or chat rooms, such information may be collected and used by others over whom CCI has no control. We cannot control the use made by third parties of information you post or otherwise make available in public areas of CCI.
You may have access to, review, correct, update, change or delete your account profile information at any time. Simply log into your account, go to your profile, and make the necessary changes. Before providing you with a copy of your Personal Information or correcting, updating or deleting such information, we reserve the right to verify and authenticate your identity and the Personal Information to which you have requested access. Access to or correction, updating or deletion of your Personal Information may be denied or limited by CCI if it would violate another person’s rights and/or as otherwise permitted by applicable law. We will respond to information access requests within 30 days of receipt. If we require additional time to provide access to your information, we will acknowledge receipt of your request within 30 days and promptly supplement our response within the time period required by applicable law.
Please note that in accordance with our routine corporate recordkeeping practices, we may delete certain records that contain your Personal Information. We are under no obligation to store such information indefinitely and disclaim any liability arising out of, or related to, the destruction of such information.
If you wish to delete or close your account or account profile information altogether, please click here to contact us. An email will be sent to you to confirm that your Personal Information has been deleted (save for an archival copy which is not accessible by you or third parties on the Internet). The archival copy is retained only for as long as CCI reasonably considers necessary for audit and record purposes. We will retain logs, demographic, indirect, and statistical information about you and keep an archival copy of this information in an anonymous form. If your Personal Information was previously accessed by others using our Sites, we are not able to delete the information or copies thereof from their systems.
Other Important Information
You are responsible for ensuring that your log-in credentials (your User ID and password) are kept confidential.
CCI has implemented technical and organizational measures designed to secure your Personal Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. Notwithstanding such measures, the Internet is an open system and we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your Personal Information for improper purposes. Please consider this prior to submitting your Personal Information to us via the Sites.
In keeping with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, children under 13 years of age must have permission from a Parent or Legal Guardian before providing Personal Information as described above. CCI will not knowingly receive Personal Information from children under 13 years of age who have not received prior parental consent. Any Personal Information from a child stored by CCI will be deleted upon written request from the child's parent or legal guardian. Deletion requests should be addressed to:

*Cookies: CCI uses "cookies" to help personalize and maximize your online experience and time online. A cookie is a text file that is either stored in your computer’s memory temporarily or placed on your hard drive by a Web page server. Cookies are not used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to your computer and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
We may also allow other companies to display advertisements to you while you are visiting our Sites. Because your Web browser must request these advertisements from the other companies’ servers, these companies can view, edit or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site. CCI has no control over, and is not responsible for, the practices of those third party advertisers. CCI encourages you to review the policies of such advertisers.
We may allow third party cookies as part of online advertising campaigns to determine and track site traffic landing from CCI’s advertising banners that have been placed on the websites of third parties. The data collected via these cookies is anonymous and the information is not linked to your personally identifiable information without your permission.
*Web Beacons: CCI Sites may also contain electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) that allow us to count users who have visited those web pages and to deliver co-branded services. Web beacons are not used to access your Personal Information; they are a technique we use to compile aggregated statistics about our Sites’ usage. Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the Web beacon resides. Because Web beacons are the same as any other content, you cannot opt out or refuse them. However, they can be rendered ineffective by either opting out of cookies or changing the cookie setup in your browser.
CCI provides users the opportunity to opt-out of or discontinue receiving communications from CCI. If you do not desire to continue receiving communications from CCI, please send your request to opt out to CCI at unsubscribe@_________. It may be necessary to contact affiliates, business partners or other third parties directly in order to cease receiving communications from those third parties.
