The Information CICM Collects

When you visit the CICM Websites, CICM or its Vendors collect information, including Personal Information that you provide, in order to provide you with the products and services you requested or with offers or promotions that may interest you, and save you time and better respond to your needs.

CICM uses “Cookie” technology to collect Website statistical information and to improve your customer experience with the CICM Websites. Cookies set by CICM do not capture any Personal Information when your web browser is idle or when you are away from the CICM site. However, if you choose to furnish CICM with Personal Information, this information will be linked to the data stored in the Cookie to further enhance your experience with CICM Websites. For example, CICM may use Cookies to personalize your experience at CICM Websites (e.g., to recognize you by name when you return to CICM Websites), save your password in password-protected areas, and enable you to use shopping carts on CICM Websites.

CICM or its Vendors may automatically collect some statistical data as you browse CICM Websites. For example, CICM automatically collects your “IP Address” used to connect your computer to the Internet, browser type and version, operating system and platform, average time spent on our Websites, pages viewed, information searched for, access times, “Clickstream Data,” and other relevant information about your online experience.

CICM or its Vendors also collect information, including Personal Information, that you provide via telephone, traditional mail, e-mail, in person, or otherwise.

At some CICM Websites and through certain promotional sites, you may submit information, including Personal Information, about other people. For example, if you register for an event and provide CICM with a roster of participants, CICM might collect the participants’ names, addresses, e-mail addresses, and contact information.

How CICM Uses and Shares the Information Collected

CICM uses the information collected about you and others, including Personal Information, to complete transactions, respond to your requests, deliver the products and services in which you enroll or request, and notify you of updates, products, services, offers, or promotions that may interest you. CICM may process or combine your information with other information that is publicly available. This enables CICM to customize your customer experience and provide you with more relevant offers. CICM may also use the information collected from you online and via other means to market to you through alternative channels.

CICM may share your information with carefully selected Vendors. This includes companies that manage accounts and companies that perform marketing services and other business operations on CICM’s behalf. All companies that act on CICM’s behalf are required to safeguard Personal Information.

CICM may share your information with carefully selected “Business Partners” that may wish to offer you products or services that may interest you, either in conjunction with CICM or by themselves.

CICM may also use or disclose your information, including Personal Information, to comply with the law or in response to a subpoena, court order, government request, or other legal process, or as otherwise permitted by law; to reduce fraud or criminal activity; to protect the legal rights of CICM, CICM customers, CICM Websites, or the users of CICM Websites; or CICM as a whole, to continue using your information to serve you or as otherwise permitted by this Privacy Statement.

Using Your E-Mail Address

CICM may use your e-mail address for the following types of e-mail messages:

  • Account Service Communications. CICM may send you communications related to CICM promotions, products and services you have registered for (e.g., event registrations and/or products).

  • Updates and Valuable Offers. CICM may send you e-mail account updates, offers for CICM products and services, requests for enrollment, as well as valuable offers from CICM promotional partners.

  • Regularly Scheduled E-mail Newsletters that you elected to receive.

You can also elect to receive other types of e-mail messages from CICM, including alerts and notifications.

Advertisements That Link to CICM Websites

CICM hires Vendors to place advertisements on the CICM Website and CICM banner advertisements on other websites, and to perform tracking and reporting activities on the CICM Websites and other websites. This enables CICM to learn which advertisements and websites bring users to CICM Websites and to improve the user experience. Cookies are used to assist with these activities. In doing so, a unique Cookie is placed on your computer either by CICM or a Vendor in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Statement.

This Privacy Statement does not cover any use of information that such Vendors may have collected from you or the methods used by them to collect that information. Rather, such Vendors have their own privacy policies. If you would like more information about their privacy policies, including information on how to opt out of their tracking methods, please read their privacy policies.

Contests

CICM may occasionally offers contests. The full rules for promotional contests are clearly posted during each contest. The information that is gathered through a contest is used only by CICM to verify user identity and to contact winners and/or prize recipients.

YOUR COMMUNICATION AND PRIVACY CHOICES

  • How To Opt Out of Receiving Offers and Promotions

CICM respects the choices that you make regarding your privacy. You may request that CICM no longer send you e-mails and/or offline offers or promotions, or share your information with CICM Business Partners that are interested in providing you with offers and promotions that may interest you.

Privacy Choices: How to Opt Out of Receiving Offers and Promotions

CICM and our trusted third parties may share with one another anonymous versions of user information collected at this site. We may use that information to link to and issue anonymous cookies containing demographic or intent-based data for online behavioral advertising purposes.  Such cookies do not contain personally identifiable information.  If you would like to opt out of online behavioral advertising, you may do so here: http://www.aboutads.info/choices.

Please note that even if you opt out of receiving e-mails and/or offline offers or promotions, CICM may continue to send you service notifications via e-mails or offline means that are related to your account(s) and other products and services you have requested or in which you are currently enrolled. These include e-mails that provide account information, answer your questions about a product or service, facilitate or confirm a sale, or fulfill a legal or regulatory requirement.

SECURING YOUR INFORMATION

CICM uses reasonable administrative, technical, and physical security measures to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access and use. Do not use e-mail to send CICM any Personal Information, since it would be unencrypted and can be read by anyone who receives or intercepts it.
