This privacy statement explains CTSS’ data collection and use practices with respect to its website (the “Site”). By using the pages in this site, you agree to the information collection and use practices described in this privacy statement.
COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We may ask you for information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you to provide a service or carry out a transaction that you have requested, including requests for information about CTSS’ products and services, requests for e-mail newsletters or purchases and/or registrations of CTSS’ products. The personal information we collect may include your name, your address, your other contact information and other information about products and/or services requested through the Site.
The Site may also collect certain information about your visit, such as the name of the Internet service provider and the Internet Protocol (IP) address through which you access the Internet; the date and time you access the Site; the pages that you access while at the Site and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to the Site. This information is used, among other things, to help improve the Site, analyze use trends and administer the Site.
USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Except as otherwise required or permitted by law, the personal information collected on this Site will be used solely to operate the Site and to provide the service(s) or carry out the transaction(s) you have requested or authorized. In support of these purposes, CTSS may use personal information to provide you with more effective customer service, to improve the Site and any related CTSS products or services, and to make the Site easier to use by eliminating the need for your repeated entry of the same information. In order to offer you a more consistent experience in your interactions with CTSS, information collected by the Site may be combined with information collected in connection with other CTSS products and services.
CTSS occasionally hires other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as website hosting, packaging, mailing, answering customer questions about products and services, and sending information about our products, special offers, and other services. We will only provide those companies the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
CTSS may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on CTSS or the Site; or (b) protect and defend the rights or property of CTSS and the Site.
CONTROL OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Except as otherwise described in this privacy statement, your personal information will not be shared outside of CTSS and its subsidiaries and affiliates without your permission. You can access your personal information and make choices about how you wish to be contacted by contacting CTSS as described at the bottom of this statement, or through alternative means of access described by the Site.
SECURITY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
CTSS is strongly committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.
A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server and that helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits.

CHANGES TO THIS STATEMENT
We reserve the right to update this privacy statement from time to time. We encourage you to periodically review this privacy statement to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the personal information we collect. Your continued use of the service constitutes your agreement to this privacy statement, as amended from time to time.
LIMITATIONS OF PRIVACY STATEMENT
