Privacy Policy
Privacy Policy; Consent

This Privacy Policy is provided to tell you about CCM's policy regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Data provided via the Site. The Site is governed solely by applicable Federal and State laws and governmental regulations in the United States. Use of the Site constitutes your consent to application of such laws and regulations and this Privacy Policy. Please review it carefully before submitting any Personal Data. This Privacy Policy only applies to information provided online. All capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Policy shall have the meaning assigned to them in the Terms of Use.

CCM reserves the right to amend this Privacy Policy at any time and from time to time. You should check the Terms of Use each time you use the Site to determine if any changes have been made. If you use the Site after the amended Privacy Policy has been posted, you will be deemed to have agreed to the amended Privacy Policy.

About Children

CCM will not knowingly collect Personal Data from children under the age of 13 through this Site, which is not intended for this age group.

Active Information Collection

When you access certain restricted areas of the Site, and/or receive Services, the Site will require you to submit a Password and Sign-In Name. This information is linked to Personal Data that you provided during the Site registration process.

Passive Information Collection

As you navigate through a website, certain personally non-identifiable information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as Internet Protocol addresses, cookies and navigational data collection. The Site only uses Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP Address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet and is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the Internet), rather than static (unique to a particular user's computer). CCM uses your IP address to diagnose problems with CCM's server, report aggregate information, determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to the Site, and administer and improve the Site.

Use and Disclosure of Information

CCM may use your Personal Data and/or passively collected information to improve the Site, to customize the Site to your preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have requested it), and for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy. CCM may disclose your Personal Data to CCM's affiliated entities worldwide that agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. CCM may also disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties, located in the United States and/or any other country, but only (i) to contractors CCM uses to support CCM's business (e.g., fulfillment services, technical support, delivery services, and financial institutions), in which case CCM will require such third parties to agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy, (ii) in connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of the business of the Site to which the information relates, in which case CCM will require any such buyer to agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy; or (iii) where required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) comply with a legal obligation, (b) protect and defend any of CCM's rights or property, (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Site or the public, or (d) protect against legal liability.

Access and Correction

To keep your Personal Data accurate, current, and complete, please contact CCM as specified below. CCM will take reasonable steps to update or correct personally identifiable information in CCM's possession that you have previously submitted via the Site.

Security

CCM takes reasonable steps to protect your Personal Data as you transmit your information from your computer to the Site, and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from the Site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to the Site via e-mail. Moreover, where you use Passwords, Sign-In Names, or other special access features on the Site, it is solely your responsibility to safeguard them.

The Site may contain links or references to other websites. Please be aware that CCM does not control other websites and that, in any case, this Privacy Policy does not apply to those websites. CCM encourages you to read the privacy policy of every website you visit.
