collecting personal information
of personal information
When you use the Site, CPI or third parties authorized by CPI may also collect certain technical and routing information about your computer to facilitate your use of the Site and its services. For example, we may log environmental variables, such as browser type, operating system, CPU speed, and the Internet Protocol ("IP") address of your computer. We use these environmental variables to facilitate and track your use of the Site and its services. CPI also uses such environmental variables to measure traffic patterns on the Site. Without expressly informing you in each particular circumstance, we do not match such information with any of your personal information.
When you submit personal information to CPI through this Site, you understand and agree that this information may be transferred across national boundaries and may be stored and processed in any of the countries in which CPI maintains offices, including, without limitation, the Australia. You also acknowledge that in certain countries or with respect to certain activities, the collection, transferring, storage, and processing of your information may be undertaken by trusted vendors of CPI. Such vendors are bound by contract not to use your personal information for their own purposes or provide it to any third parties. One instance where this could occur is in conjunction with framed pages in which the URL for the pages is not visible and the pages are being hosted by a vendor of CPI.
personal information is used
CPI may collect information about the use of the Site, such as the types of services used and how many users we receive daily. This information is collected in aggregate form, without identifying any user individually. CPI may use this aggregate, non-identifying statistical data for statistical analysis, marketing, or similar promotional purposes.
choices with respect to personal information
There are other instances in which CPI may divulge your personal information. CPI may provide your personal information if necessary, in CPI's good faith judgment, to comply with laws or regulations of a governmental or regulatory body or in response to a valid subpoena, warrant, or order or to protect the rights of CPI or others.
Please note that any information you post to a public bulletin board or chat room, such as the CPI User to User Forums (the "Forums"), is available to all persons accessing that location. Your e-mail address will not automatically be posted on the Forums unless you modify the default setting to permit that. Your e-mail address would then be available to all persons accessing the Forums. In addition, you should be aware that the Forums offers a service in which subscribers are e-mailed a copy of all messages posted to the Forums on a particular topic. Consequently, if you post a message to the Forums, your e-mail address will be sent to those subscribers that have indicated an interest in the topic of your message.
Please also note that if you provide CPI with inconsistent privacy preferences (for example, by indicating on one occasion that third parties may contact you with marketing offers and indicating on another occasion that they may not), CPI cannot guarantee that your most recent privacy preference will be honored.
