Information Collection and Use
CSI is the sole owner of any information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. CSI collects information from our users only during the submission process.
No personally identifiable information (e-mail address, name, etc.) is collected with the cookies that we set, and accepting cookies while on the CSI site will not put the user at risk for marketing to other sites.
Different browsers have different cookie-settings. Internet Explorer has an additional feature where you can specify different settings for different security zones. You can choose to allow Web sites to create cookies for you in your "trusted sites" (like CSI), to warn you before you create them in your local Intranet zone, and to give you an option to never allow them in a "restricted zone." See the "Help" section of your particular browser for more information on working with cookies.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use for reporting and sponsorship purposes. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We may share aggregated demographic information with our sponsors and donors. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual user. We only share this information so that we can secure funding to continue providing this site free of charge.
This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that CSI does not claim any responsibility for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.
This Web site takes every precaution to protect our users' information, and we have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control.
