CCN Inc.'s policy is to respect and protect the privacy of our users. This policy statement tells you how we collect information from you and how we use it. Using the Internet should be a fun experience and we want to help you make it so.
The information you provide for your personal CCN Inc. account is used to make your visits to our site easy and enjoyable. To facilitate education and round table registration, your personal information might be shared among the CCN Inc. partner sites. However, be assured that CCN Inc. will not disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent. CCN Inc. may disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) CCN Inc.'s rights or property, other CCN Inc. users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. CCN Inc. may disclose user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
There are cases where CCN Inc. may ask you for personal information such as your name, email address, and birth date. For example, we request personal information when you register for a CCN Inc. white paper or certification class.
In case you change your mind or some personal information may change (such as your zip code), we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove the personal data you give us. You can do this at the member information page or by contacting our Customer Support organization at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information provided at the time of Registration or submission from a guest who is 13 years of age or over may be used for marketing and promotional purposes by CCN Inc. and our affiliates or companies that have been prescreened by CCN Inc.. To keep you in control of your personal information and the communications directed to you, we allow you to opt-out of the following services: sharing your information in our member directory, receiving communications from CCN Inc. about up coming industry events, new features or services, and receiving communications about offers from third-party companies that offer a product or service that we think would be of value to you. If a guest objects to such use for any reason, he/she may stop that use -- either by e-mail request to email@example.com or by modifying his/her member information online.
USE OF IP ADDRESSES
An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're surfing the Web. Web servers -- the big computers that "serve up" Web pages -- automatically identify your computer by its IP address.
CCN Inc. collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our advertisers, and to audit the use of our site. When guests request pages from CCN Inc. sites, our servers log the guests' IP addresses. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a user's session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our house rules or terms of service or to protect our service, site, customers or others.
Some services within CCN Inc., such as certain message boards, may display IP addresses along with the message poster's name and message. Please review each service prior to use and only use those that disclose information you are comfortable with sharing.
By showing how and when guests use a site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. We use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to our users needs.
You may occasionally get cookies from our advertisers. CCN Inc. does not control these cookies. The use of advertising cookies sent by third-party servers is standard in the Internet industry.
Links to other sites
Users should be aware that when you are on CCN Inc., you could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from CCN Inc. pages that take you outside our service. For example, if you "click" on a banner advertisement or a CCN Inc. search result, the "click" takes you off the CCN Inc. site. This includes links from advertisers, Center sponsors and partners that may use CCN Inc.'s logo as part of a co-branding agreement. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data or solicit personal information. Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online --- for example, via message boards or chat --- that information can be collected and used by people you don\\\'t know. While CCN Inc. strive to protect its user\\\'s personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk. CCN Inc.\\\'s policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond CCN Inc.\\\'s control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation. SECURITY
The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our guests is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, CCN Inc. can't ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. When credit card information is transmitted we use industry standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption.
Your MyCCN Account is password protected so that only you can access it and view the member information relevant to the account. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. CCN Inc. will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or email. Ultimately, you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and any account information.
Remember to sign out of your MyCCN account and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if your computer is accessible to others or if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or internet café.
