CHI is committed to safeguarding the information Users entrust to CHI and believes every User should know how CHI utilizes the information collected from Users. The Site is not directed at children less than 13 years of age.
The Information We Collect
CHI may collect personally identifiable information from Users in a variety of ways. Personally identifiable information may include (i) contact data (such as a User’s name, mailing and email addresses); (ii) financial data (such as a User’s account or credit card number); and (iii) demographic data (such as a User’s zip code, age and income). If you communicate with CHI by email or otherwise complete online forms, surveys or contest entries, any information provided in such communication may be collected by CHI. CHI may also collect information about how Users use our Site, for example, by tracking the number of unique views received by the pages of the Site, or the domains from which Users originate. We may use “cookies” to track how Users use our Site. A cookie is a piece of software that a Web server can store on the User’s computer and use to identify the User should they visit the Site again. While not all of the information that we collect from Users is personally identifiable, it may be associated with personally identifiable information that Users provide us through our Site. CHI may also collect information about how Users use the Site, for example, by tracking the number of unique views received by the pages of the Site, or the domains and Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses from which Users originate. While not all of the information that CHI collects from Users is personally identifiable, it may be associated with personally identifiable information that Users provide CHI through the Site or otherwise. Additionally, certain information regarding your computer systems, network locations, IP address and software may be communicated to CHI in certain circumstances by the digital rights management systems associated with certain content that you download or access via the Site in order to prevent unauthorized use or distribution of the associated content. Non-personally identifiable information collected by CHI (such as patterns of utilization) is exclusively owned by CHI and may be used as it sees fit in accordance with applicable law.
How We Use Information
CHI may use personally identifiable information collected through our Site to contact Users regarding products and services offered by CHI and its trusted affiliates, independent contractors and business partners and otherwise to enhance Users’ experience with CHI and such affiliates, independent contractors and business partners. CHI may also use information collected through the Site for research regarding the effectiveness of the Site and the marketing, advertising and sales efforts of CHI, its trusted affiliates, independent contractors and business partners.
Disclosure of Information
CHI may disclose information collected from Users to trusted affiliates, independent contractors and business partners who will use the information for the purposes outlined above. We may also disclose aggregate, anonymous data based on information collected from Users to investors and potential partners. We may disclose information if we believe in good faith that we are required to do so in order to comply with an applicable statute, regulation, rule or law, a subpoena, a search warrant, a court or regulatory order or another valid legal process. We may disclose information in special circumstances we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Site policies or to protect the safety and security of our users, our Site, and the general public. Finally, we may transfer information collected from Users in connection with or in contemplation of a sale of its assets or business or a merger, consolidation or other reorganization of its business.
Security of Information
Information about Users that is maintained on our systems is protected using industry standard security measures. In order to secure your personal information, access to your data is password-protected, and sensitive data is protected by SSL encryption when it is exchanged between your web browser and the Site. However, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and CHI cannot guarantee that the information submitted to, maintained on or transmitted from its systems will be completely secure.
Correcting/Updating Personal Information
If a User’s personally identifiable information changes (such as your zip code), or if a User no longer desires to receive non-account specific information from us, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that User’s personal data provided to us. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like your information updated or removed from our systems.
