1. What Information Does CDBC Collect?
a. Information You Submit
CDBC may ask you to provide information about yourself, including your name, address, phone number, email address and credit or debit card information for your CDBC purchases. If you wish to change your account information please Contact Us.
CDBC uses website “cookies” to help you use our services more easily and to help us improve the Website and our service. A “cookie” is a small data file that a website sends to your browser, which may then be stored on your computer to help the Website remember information about you so that it is easier and more efficient to use the Website. CDBS’s Website uses session cookies that do not contain any of your personal information, cannot be used to track you on the internet, and do not remain on your computer after you close your web browser window. Session cookies can only be used by the Website and they only exist for as long as you are on the Website. Depending on the settings in your browser, you may have the option to deny the session cookie, but doing so may negatively impact the Website’s performance or restrict us in serving your needs. The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether.
When you purchase CDBC products online, your order is processed through FoxyCart.com LLC. FoxyCart is a PCI DSS Level 2 Service Provider that assures customer payment information is received and processed securely. In order to process your order, FoxyCart may log your IP address and other network information using cookies. FoxyCart also stores and transmits customer information using secure connections as necessary to process transactions and send transaction reports to CDBC. Under no circumstances will FoxyCart contact CDBC customers without CDBC’s explicit approval, nor will FoxyCart use customer information for marketing purposes or sell, share or otherwise disclose customer information unless required by law. Customer information may be used to create anonymous, aggregated statistics relating to transaction value and volume.
2. How Does CDBC Use My Personal Information?
a. User Identification
For the Website pages that offer user registration, we may retain that registration information on a secure server so that on visiting the Website again you will not need to re-enter the information. We may use that information in an aggregated form to measure number of visits, average time spent on the Website, pages viewed and other relevant statistics. We collect this information to measure the use of the Website and to improve the Website’s content.
b. Contacting You About Promotions and New Products
On the Website there is a tab that lets you “opt in” to receive communications from us. We will not send unsolicited messages to you about promotions or new products or other marketing material unless you specifically have opted in to receive those messages. If you no longer wish to receive such emails from us after you have opted in, you can follow the procedures described below in the “How Can I ‘Opt Out’ of Receiving E-mail Communications?” section below. Please note that your request to opt out of receiving emails may not prevent us from sending such emails that were generated or scheduled before we are able to process your request.
c. Use of Your Information
We require personally-identifiable information to complete transactions on the Website. We may also use information collected about your preferences and activities on the Website, such as the particular pages you request on the Website and purchases or other transactions you make through the Website. We may vary the content you receive in future visits to the Website based on your preferences and activities.
d. Disclosure of Your Information
We will not disclose your personally-identifiable information to any persons or entities outside of CDBC, or lease, license, sublicense, rent, transfer, disclose, disseminate or otherwise grant access to any such information, unless:
(i) We must share your information to provide a product or service that you have ordered or requested, in which case we will require that any third party we use to fulfill your order agrees that it does not have the right to use your information other than to fulfill your order or request;
(ii) You have been given an opportunity to “opt in” and have agreed to opt in to such disclosure of your information; or
(iii) We are required to respond to a subpoena, court order or other legal requirement that requires disclosure of your personal information.
e. Disclosure of Aggregate Information
We may combine your personally-identifiable information and information about your preferences and activities with those of all or a particular group of our users to prepare collective profiles of our users and their activities for our internal use. For example, we may track the number of our users who view certain pages or use certain features, compile the total dollar amount of sales conducted through the Website in a particular geographic region, or track purchasing trends. Such information, and other information we derive from individual users’ information, allows us to expand and provide you with quality information through more accurate marketing and advertising. We may share aggregated information concerning our users, without attribution of personal information, to other companies with whom we conduct business.
f. How Can I “Opt Out” of Receiving E-mail Communications?
If you do not wish to receive email messages from us, please choose “unsubscribe” from within the email that you receive. CDBC will promptly process your unsubscribe request.
3. How Does CDBC Secure the Website?
CDBC uses procedural and technical safeguards to secure your personal information against loss, theft, alteration, and unauthorized access, use and disclosure. Any information you enter on our accounts setup page is encrypted before transmission to our server by using 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer encryption software. You can safely enter your credit or debit card and registration information and it cannot be read in transit to our server. CDBC also uses many security procedures to protect your information from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the company.
Regardless of the precautions we take, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you transmit such information at your own risk.
What You Can Do To Protect Your Information?
(i) Use only secure websites that begin with “https” when disclosing your information;
(ii) Avoid using easy to guess access and PIN codes;
(iii) Never respond to unsolicited requests for your Social Security number or financial information;
(iv) Do not disclose your Website passwords or account information to any other person; and
(v) Be sure to sign off when you finish using a shared computer.
The Website may contain links to other websites, and we cannot be, and are not, responsible for maintaining your privacy once you leave the Website. If you provide any information to parties who operate websites that link to or from the Website, different rules may apply to their collection, use, safeguarding and disclosure of your personal information. You should review other websites’ policies before providing any sensitive or personal information on those websites. CDBC shall not, under any circumstances, have any liability whatsoever for the activities conducted by or on any website accessed from or through the Website.
4. Does CDBC Collect Information from Persons Under 13 Years of Age?
CDBC does not attempt to collect personally-identifiable information from persons under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If we learn that we inadvertently have received such information online from a child under the age of 13, we will delete such information from our records. If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any personally-identifiable information to us. If you are the parent or guardian of a person under the age of 13 who has provided personally-identifiable information to us, please inform us by contacting us at email@example.com and we will remove such information from our database. If you are concerned about your children’s use of the Website, you may use web filtering technology to supervise or limit access to the Website.
