Privacy & Security

The information that we obtain through your use of the Web site, whether through the registration process or otherwise, is subject to our Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is designed to tell you about our practices regarding collection, use, and disclosure of information that you may provide via this Web site, including your rights relative to that information. Please be sure to read this entire Privacy Policy before using or submitting information to this Web site. If you are unwilling to accept the terms and conditions of the Privacy Policy, we ask that you not use the Web site.

Your Consent

By using this Web site, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy and the Consumer Products Company Terms & Conditions of Use (the "Agreement"). Whenever you submit information via this Web site, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

About Children

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. This Web site is not intended for children under the age of 18. We will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information via this Web site from visitors in this age group, and no part of our Web site is designed to attract anyone under age 18. Please do not communicate with or contact us if you are under age 18. We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the Internet.

Information You Provide

This Web site actively collects information from its visitors both by asking you specific questions and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via email, feedback forms, and/or chat rooms. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, address, email address, phone number, and so on).

Some areas of this Web site may ask you to submit personally identifiable information in order for you to benefit from the specified features (such as newsletter subscriptions, Ask the Experts, Share Your Story) or to participate in a particular activity (such as surveys or other promotions). You will be informed what information is required and what information is optional.

Never provide your password, telephone numbers, or home address to anyone online. Be very careful about responding to solicitations for interviews or research. Note however that CMHA editors might invite you to respond to such solicitations from time to time.

Never divulge any private or personal information about another person online. That includes the person's real name or address, email address, and any other personal information that the person has not asked you to make public. Do not forward or post private messages that someone has sent you unless you have his or her permission. Only send email to another CMHA member if he or she has given you express permission. Please do not solicit other people's personal information.

The email address you provide is for our use only, unless you provide it to other members. By enabling your username as "clickable" and allowing other members to email you directly by clicking on your username — or by posting your address in a message on our boards — you take full responsibility for the email received. CMHA does not monitor such communications and will not intervene between members who use this function. The only way to keep from receiving undesirable email is to disable the "clickable" function and not share your email address.

Passive Information Collection

As you navigate through this Web site, certain anonymous information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies, such as cookies, Internet tags or Web beacons, and navigational data collection (log files, server logs, clickstream). Your Internet browser automatically transmits to this Web site some of this anonymous information, such as the URL of the Web site you just came from and the Internet Protocol (IP) address and the browser version your computer is currently using. This Web site may also collect anonymous information from your computer through cookies and Internet tags or Web beacons. You may set your browser to notify you when a cookie is sent or to refuse cookies altogether, but certain features of this Web site might not work without cookies.

This Web site may use and combine such passively collected anonymous information to provide better service to Web site visitors, customize the Web site based on your preferences, compile and analyze statistics and trends, and otherwise administer and improve the Web site for your use. We may at times combine personally identifiable information with passively collected information in order to personalize offers and the Web site for our users (for example, combined information may allow us to recommend products or features to you based on what you have liked in the past).

Use and Disclosure of Information

Except as otherwise stated, we may use information collected via this Web site to improve the content of our Web site, to customize the Web site to your preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have requested it), for our marketing and research purposes, and for any other purpose specified. In addition, we may make full use of all information acquired through this Web site that is not in personally identifiable form.

If you provide personally identifiable information to this Web site, we may combine such information with other actively collected information unless we specify otherwise at the point of collection. We also may disclose personally identifiable information you provide via this Web site to third parties, but only:

  • to carefully selected third-parties who have made offers that may be of interest to you, provided you have consented to such offers, in which case we will require such third-parties to agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
  • to contractors we use to support our business (such as fulfillment services, technical support, delivery services, and financial institutions), in which case we will require such third parties to agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy and use it for the same purposes.
  • CMHA also contracts with an analytics company, to measure: how visitors use our Web site, which offers visitors find of interest, and other visitor activities. To do this, CMHA uses cookies and "Internet tags" (beacons) provided by an analytics company. The types of information we collect include: pages you have visited, purchases you have made, and paths taken through the Web site. By supplementing our records with such information, we learn things like what pages are most attractive to our visitors, which of our products most interest our customers, and what kinds of offers our customers like to see. While the analytics company logs information coming from our Web site, CMHA retains full ownership of data stored by the analytics company, and controls how that data may and may not be used.
  • in connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of the business of this Web site to which the information relates, in which case we will require any such buyer to agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy and use it for the same purposes.
  • to respond to law enforcement requests or where required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations.

The collection, use, and disclosure of information contemplated in this Privacy Policy may involve a transfer of the information to jurisdictions located outside your country of residence that may not have equivalent laws and rules regarding personally identifiable information. In these cases, you will be asked to consent to such transfers and disclosures in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
