You may provide us with two types of information: (1) personal information you knowingly choose to disclose to us through documents submitted to CSC or its affiliates and over the Web site and (2) Web site-use information collected as you and others browse and use our Web site.
When you submit documents to CSC or its affiliates, when you register on our Web site, and/or when you choose to request forms or information through our Web site, you may be asked to give personal information. For example, you may be asked to provide the following information:
When you invest in a product offered by or distributed through CSC, or if you register to use our services, request forms or information, or otherwise complete online forms or submit information, we may collect any information you provide in such documentation or communication.
In addition to providing the foregoing information collected through your submission of documents to CSC or its affiliates or your use of our Web site, if you choose to correspond further with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses.
Similar to other commercial Web sites, our Web site utilizes a standard technology called "cookies" and Web server logs to collect information about how our Web site is used. Cookies are a feature of Web browser software that allows Web servers to recognize the computer used to access a Web site. They are small pieces of data that are stored by a user's Web browser on the user's hard drive. Cookies can remember what information a user accesses on one Web page to simplify subsequent interactions with that Web site by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user's transactions on related Web pages. This makes it easier for a user to move from Web page to Web page and to complete commercial transactions over the Internet. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalized. Information gathered through cookies and Web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our Web site, and the Web sites visited just before and just after our Web site. This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual. If your browser is set to reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use or navigate some areas of our site will be impaired.
Broadly speaking, we use your personal information for purposes of administering our business activities, providing customer service, making other products and services available to you and target ads to you on other websites. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our Web site, new services and special offers we think you will find valuable. You will be given the opportunity to notify us on the Web site of your desire not to receive these offers. We use Web site browser software tools such as cookies and Web server logs to gather information about our Web site users' browsing activities in order to constantly improve our Web site and better serve our customers. This information assists us to design and arrange our Web pages in the most user-friendly manner and to continually improve our Web site to better meet your needs.
In the event that CSC or any of its affiliates and/or some of our assets are sold or transferred or used as security, the information collected on our Web sites may be transferred to third parties as part of that transaction. CSC may also provide such information or provide access to such information to our affiliates or to our business partners, vendors and/or service providers; however we will do so subject to appropriate confidentially agreements that obligate such partners, vendors and/or service partners to maintain and protect the confidentiality of such information.
If CSC is requested by law enforcement officials, our governing regulatory authorities or judicial authorities to provide information on individual users, we may, without your consent, provide such information. In matters involving claims of personal or public safety, CSC may provide your personal information to appropriate authorities without your consent or court process.
If you request CSC to share any personal non-public information with an outside person or entity (e.g. your attorney, accountant, family members, etc.) not currently authorized to receive such non-public confidential information, CSC will request written authorization from you and any other account holders to do so. A form titled "Authorization to Share Confidential Information" will be provided to the account owner(s) for completion. This form will authorize CSC to share information with specific parties that the account owners request be authorized to receive such information.
In the event that you desire to opt-out from receiving targeted advertisements, you may do so by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative website opt-out page located at: networkadvertising.org/choices/ or the Digital Advertising Alliance opt-out page located at aboutads.info.
Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our Web site. You will be given the opportunity to notify us of your desire not to receive these offers by clicking on a response box when you receive such an email or by sending us an email request at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you enter confidential personal information on our Web site, this information is not saved, captured or in any way otherwise stored by us.
Email that you may send to us may not be secure unless we advise you that security measures will be in place prior to your transmitting the information. For that reason, we ask that you do not send confidential information such as Social Security numbers to us through an unsecured email.
We know that security is a concern and we have developed and implemented administrative, technical and physical security practices and procedures designed to protect the confidentiality of your personal information and the security of our Web site. We will take measures which we believe are reasonable and appropriate to protect your information from unauthorized access or disclosure and accidental loss, alteration or destruction.
For those of our users who are concerned about security and confidentiality, we recommend that you use good general privacy protection and Web policies, such as the following:
CSC restricts its requests for personal information to very limited circumstances. We do not maintain retail accounts. To the extent CSC does access your personal and account information, such access is limited to those of its employees and affiliates who need to know that information to provide services to you. CSC maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to guard your nonpublic personal information.
If you have any questions concerning CSC privacy policies and procedures, please feel free to contact us. Thank you.
