CV does not knowingly collect PII from children under 18 years of age.
COLLECTION: COLLECTION OF PII BY CV
General. CV collects personally identifiable information (“PII” — that is, information such as your full name, email address, mailing address, telephone number or credit card information) only in order to create, maintain or enhance our relationship with you. When we collect PII from you it is because you are voluntarily submitting the information to us because you want us to furnish you with products, services or information.
NOTICE: CV WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH NOTICE ABOUT ITS PII COLLECTION PRACTICES
When CV collects PII from you, we will make sure you are informed about who is collecting the information, how and why the information is being collected and the types of uses CV will make of the information.
This Policy describes the types of other companies that may want to send you information about their products and services and therefore may want to share your personal information (see “Use” below). However, CV will notify you of your options regarding our use of your personally identifiable information, including whether we can share it with outside companies, typically at the time of collection. (See “Choice” below.)
CV’s web site(s) may also be linked to sites operated by our business partners or by other companies that are affiliated with us. Visitors to those affiliated sites should still refer to their separate privacy policies and practices, which may differ in some respects from this Policy.
CHOICE: CV WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH CHOICES ABOUT THE USE OF YOUR PII
CV will provide you with the opportunity to choose whether your PII may be used for purposes different from the purpose for which it was submitted or those purposes described in this Policy. You will also be able to choose whether your information is shared with companies that are not affiliated with CV.
USE: CV’S USE OF PII
CV will use your PII in a manner that is consistent with this Policy and for the purpose for which it is submitted, unless other uses are disclosed and you allow us to use your information in other ways. CV may use PII in aggregate, anonymous form for research purposes. In most instances, CV will delete PII from its records as soon as possible.
CV may share your PII with companies that are affiliated with us, including for marketing, advertising and sales campaigns.
CV employees, agents and contractors must have a legitimate business reason to obtain access to your PII. Outside contractors or agents who help us manage our information activities (record keeping, data management, order fulfillment, statistical analyses) must comply with CV’s instructions with respect to PII, and may only use PII to provide CV with a specific service and not for any other purpose.
If CV obtains PII from a third party, such as a business partner, our subsequent use of this information is governed by this Policy.
There may be instances when CV may disclose PII without providing you with a choice in order to protect the legal rights of CV, its affiliates, parent company, employees, agents, contractors and their service providers; to protect the safety and security of visitors to our web sites; to protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; or to comply with the law or legal process.
In addition, if CV sells all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of some or all of its assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, CV may transfer your PII to a third party as part of that transaction.
SECURITY: CV PROTECTS THE SECURITY OF PII
CV uses reasonable administrative, technical, personnel and physical measures to safeguard PII in its possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification. In addition, CV uses reasonable methods to make sure that PII is accurate, up-to-date and appropriately complete. However, CV, its officers, directors, affiliates, employees, agents, contractors and their service providers do not represent, warrant, or guarantee that PII will be protected against unauthorized access, loss, misuse or alterations. We do not accept any liability for PII submitted, or for any third parties’ use or misuse of PII.
ACCESS, REMEDIES AND COMPLIANCE: HOW TO ACCESS, CORRECT OR DELETE YOUR PII AND HOW TO CONTACT CV ABOUT PRIVACY CONCERNS
Whenever possible, visitors to CV may review the PII we maintain about them in our records. We will not be able to provide such access to PII that has been deleted from our records as soon as we are allowed to by law. However, prior to such deletion we will not use that PII except for the purpose for which it was submitted, and we will also take reasonable steps to correct any PII a visitor informs us is incorrect.
Please note that participation in certain activities on our web sites(s) may be limited if PII is not submitted by you.
