For example, you may provide us with Personal Information when you fill out the “Contact Us” form on the Site.

- Automatically Collected Information. When you visit the Site, we may automatically receive and record certain information from your computer, web browser and/or mobile device, including your IP address or other device address or ID, web browser and/or device type, hardware and software settings and configurations, the web pages or sites that you visit just before or just after visiting the Site, the pages you view on the Site, your actions on the Site, and the dates and times that you visit, access, or use the Site. This includes information about how you use and navigate the Site, including which links you click on, which pages or content you view and for how long, and other similar information and statistics about your interactions with the Site. When you use the Site on a mobile device, we may also collect the physical location of your device by, for example, using satellite, cell phone tower or wireless local area network signals.
- How We Use Your Information
Your information is an integral part of our operations, and we use it in a variety of ways in operating our business and providing products and services. For example:
- We use the information that you provide to operate, maintain, enhance, and provide all of the features of the Site.
- We use the information that you provide to understand and analyze the usages trends and preferences of our users, to improve the Site, to create new features and functionality, and to improve fraud detection and information security.
- We may use your e-mail address or other Personal Information (a) to send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions, (b) send you information related to your product and/or service, or (c) market to our mailing list or continue to send emails to our customers after an initial transaction has occurred. Generally, you can opt-out of receiving promotional communications through links provided in the messages or by contacting us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- When We Disclose Information
We do not rent, sell, or share Personal Information with other people or nonaffiliated companies except when we have your permission, as required by law, and/or under the following circumstances:
- We work with third party service providers to provide website development, hosting, data storage, maintenance, and other services for us. To the extent it is necessary for these third-party service providers to complete their contractual obligations to us, these third parties may have access to or process information about you. Our third-party service providers do not have any independent right to use or share such information outside of their relationship with CTS.
- In some cases, in order to provide the products and services available through and/or in connection with the Site, we provide information about you to trusted partners who work on behalf of or with us under confidentiality agreements. Our partners do not have any independent right to use or share such information outside of their relationship with CTS.
- We may partner with third parties to manage our advertising on other websites. Our third-party partners may use tracking technologies to gather information about your activities on our Site and other websites to provide you with advertising based on your browsing activities and interests. Currently, various browsers offer a “Do Not Track” option, but there is no standard for how Do Not Track should work on commercial websites. Due to lack of such standards, the Site does not respond to Do Not Track consumer browser settings.
- We may share information about you in response to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
- We may transfer or assign information about you if CTS is acquired by or merged with another company, or in the unlikely event of a bankruptcy.
You may request information about service providers, partners, and other third parties we work with at any time. If you would like CTS to stop providing your Personal Information to any third party, please contact us at email@example.com.
- Your Rights (Choice, Opt-out, and Do Not Track Disclosures)
Depending on your jurisdiction, you may have legal rights in relation to your Personal Information. These rights may include:
- Declining to share certain information with us, in which case we may not be able to provide to you some of the features and functionality of the Site.
- Requesting and obtaining information regarding how CTS may use your Personal Information.
- In some circumstances, requesting and receiving some Personal Information about you that you have provided to CTS (for California residents, please see Section 6 below regarding verified consumer access requests).
- In some circumstances, requesting that CTS correct your Personal Information if it is inaccurate or incomplete.
- In some circumstances, requesting that we erase your Personal Information (but please note that there may be circumstances where we are legally entitled to retain Personal Information regardless of any such request).
- In some circumstances, requesting that we restrict or block our processing of your Personal Information (again, there may be circumstances where we are legally entitled to refuse that request).
- Where applicable, the right to lodge a complaint with the data protection regulator in your jurisdiction if you think that any of your rights have been infringed by CTS.
You can inquire about your rights by contacting us using the details listed below in Section 9.
- How We Protect Your Information
- Data Security. We use certain physical, managerial, and technical safeguards that are designed to protect the integrity and security of your information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us through the Sites and you do so at your own risk. We also cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. Although we may allow you to adjust your privacy settings to limit access to your information, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other users or other third parties with whom you may choose to share your information. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that information you post through the Site will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site.
- Data Retention. We only store your information for as long as may be needed to provide services to you, with the exception of information that we may need to store for a longer period of time to comply with legal or regulatory obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements, or for records management purposes. CTS will also retain Usage Data for internal analysis purposes. Usage Data is generally retained for a shorter period of time, except when this data is used to strengthen the security or to improve the functionality of our Site, or we are legally obligated to retain this data for longer periods. Even after removal, copies of information that you have posted may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other users have copied or stored such information.
- Protecting Children. Our Site and our products and services are intended for use by those over the age of 16. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 16. If you are under 16 years of age, then please do not use or access the Sites at any time or in any manner.
