Cristine Meredith Miele Foundation (“CMMF”) respects the privacy rights of our users and is strongly committed to protecting your privacy online.
What Information We Gather and Track
1. We request personal information when you place an order, register for a product or service, download information, request a service, answer a survey, enter a contest, correspond with us or engage in certain other activities on our Web site. For example:
a. If you submit an order on-line with us, we will ask you for information necessary to complete the transaction – such as your name, address, and credit card number.
b. If you request technical support online, we will ask you for information necessary to complete the transaction – such as your name address and information about your computer hardware, software and the nature of the problem you are experiencing.
c. You make the decision whether to proceed with any activity that requests personal information. If you do not wish to provide the requested information, however, you may not be able to complete the transaction.
2. The only other information we automatically collect is information related to the use of our web site. This information is anonymous and is gathered through our servers’ log files and we do not use this information to identify you personally except in the case of abuse tracking. This information allows us to create better content aimed at our viewer’s preferences. These log files record generic information, such as:
a. General information when you log in: Internet domain (for example, “xcompany.com” or “yourschool.edu”); Internet Protocol (IP) address; operating system; the browser used to access our Web site; files downloaded; the date and time you access our site; and the pages that you visited.
b. Referral and statistical information where we have links or ad banners. Such data may include aggregate data such as the number of click-throughs that occurred. It may also include specific data, such as whether you are a repeat visitor; whether you viewed or clicked on an ad banner and used our site, and the identity of the site which you linked to or from. We do not use such data to identify you personally.
Information Collection and Use
CMMF is the sole owner of the information collected on its sites. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. CMMF may collect information from our users at several different points on our website.
