1. Collection of Personal Information from Site Visitors

CCH may collect and/or track (1) the home server domain names, email addresses, type of client computer, and type of Web browser of visitors to CCH's website, (2) the e-mail addresses of visitors that communicate with CCH via e-mail, (3) information knowingly provided by the visitor in online forms, registration forms, surveys, and contest entries (including demographic and personal profile data), and (4) aggregate and user-specific information on which pages visitors access.

CCH may place Internet "cookies" on visitors' hard drives. Internet cookies may save data about individual visitors, such as the visitor's name, password, user-name, shopping cart, screen preferences, the pages of a site viewed by the visitor, and the advertisements viewed or clicked by the visitor. When the visitor revisits CCH companies' sites, the sites may recognize the visitor by the Internet cookie and customize the visitor's experience accordingly. Visitors may not decline or disable Internet cookies while visiting CCH's Web sites, as the sites may not function properly. 

Visitors have the right to delete the Internet cookies placed on the visitors' hard drives at any time. Doing so will erase the data about the individual visitor such that when the visitor revisits CCH companies' sites (in a new session), the sites will not recognize the visitor.

When a visitor performs a search within CCH's website, CCH may record information identifying the visitor or linking the visitor to the search performed. CCH may also record limited information for every search request and uses that information only to solve technical problems with the service and to calculate overall usage statistics.

2. Use of Personal Data Collected

Personal data collected by CCH may be used by CCH companies for editorial and feedback purposes, for marketing and promotional purposes, for a statistical analysis of users' behavior, for product development, for content improvement, to inform advertisers as to how many visitors have seen or clicked on their advertisements, or to customize the content and layout of CCH's website. Aggregate data on visitors' home servers may be used for internal purposes or provided to third parties, such as advertisers. Individually identifying information, such as names, postal and email addresses, phone numbers, and other personal information which visitors voluntarily provide to CCH may be added to CCH's databases and used for future calls and mailings regarding site updates, new products and services, upcoming events, and status of orders placed online.

CCH sometimes collects non-identifiable information from visits to our websites to help us provide better customer service. For example, we keep track of the domains from which people visit, and we also measure visitor activity on CCH websites, but we do so in ways that keep the information non-identifiable. This information is sometimes known as "clickstream data." CCH or others on CCH behalf may use this data to analyze trends and statistics in order to help us provide better customer service.

Also, when we collect personal data from you in a transaction, we may extract some information about that transaction in an non-identifiable format and combine it with other non-identifiable information such as clickstream data. This information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level to help us understand trends and patterns. This information is not reviewed at an individual level. If you do not want your transaction details used in this manner you can disable your cookies.

3. Disclosure of Personal Data to Third Parties

CCH does not sell, rent, share or intentionally make publicly available any individually identifying information. CCH may disclose to third parties only information in aggregate form, that is publicly available, and/or that is knowingly and voluntarily disclosed by visitors. If there are advertisements on CCH's website, the advertiser(s) may be electronically notified when visitors view or click on its advertisements.

4. Security Measures

CCH has implemented numerous security features to prevent the unauthorized release of or access to personal information. In particular, when a visitor places an order on this site (if any) or accesses his or her account information (if any), CCH offers the visitor the ability to use a secure server. The secure server encrypts all information a visitor inputs before it is sent to CCH, and is also used to securely store personal information. Please be advised, however, that while CCH has endeavored to create a secure and reliable site for visitors, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to/from CCH via this site or email cannot be guaranteed. Accordingly, CCH is not responsible for the security of information transmitted via the Internet.

5. Opt-Out Right

Visitors may opt out of having their personal information collected by CCH, used by CCH for secondary purposes, disclosed to third parties, or used by CCH or third parties to send promotional correspondences to the visitor, by contacting CCH via postal mail, email, or telephone at the addresses/number below, or by unchecking the appropriate box while the visitor accesses his or her account information.

6. Access to and Ability to Correct Personal Data

Upon request via postal mail, email, or phone, CCH will provide to visitors a summary of any personal information retained by CCH regarding the visitor. Visitors may modify, correct, change or update their personal record or cause their personal record to be removed from CCH's database.
