What Information Do We Collect?

When you visit the site, send us emails, make purchases from the site, post on our blogs, or communicate with CC in any way, you are providing us with personally-identifiable information (“Personal Information”) and non-personally-identifiable information in two ways: directly and indirectly.  By giving us this information, you consent to your information being collected, used, analyzed, stored, transferred, and disclosed by CC, as described in this Policy.


If you choose to interact with us through this site, such as by voluntarily registering your email address on our site, subscribing to email updates or newsletters, making contributions or purchases, posting on our blog, or communicating with CC in any way, we will collect the Personal Information you provide to CC.  This voluntarily-provided Personal Information could include:

  • Your name
  • Your address(es)
  • Your email address
  • Your telephone number
  • Your credit card information
  • Other information relevant to your request, submission, or customer surveys and/or offers, such as your gender, occupation, birth date, purchase history and other demographic information


Like most websites, we also collect non-personally-identifiable information and Personal Information of the sort that web browser and servers typically make available, such as IP addresses, web browser type, language preferences, the pages within our site that you visit, referring site, the date and time that you visit our site, the time spent on each page within our site, and other statistics.  In addition, we may use other third-party services such as Google Analytics to collect, monitor, and analyze this indirectly-gathered information.

What We Do With the Information We Collect

 We may use and disclose your Personal Information as follows:

  • To Promote our Services and Products

We may use your Personal Information to market and promote our services and products.  For example, if you sign up for our newsletter, purchase or use certain services or products and we think you may benefit from using an additional service or product, we may send you an email with an offer for that additional service or product, upcoming events, etc.  If you provide your Personal Information when visiting our site and do not sign up for any services or purchase any products, we may send you an email asking if you would like to sign up for a service or purchase a product.  You can stop receiving our promotional emails at any time by following the “unsubscribe” instructions included with each email we send.

  • To Provide You with Requested Information

If you have “opted in” to receive information or promotions, we will use your Personal Information to provide you with such information or promotions.  Again, you can stop receiving our information or promotions at any time by following the “unsubscribe” instructions included with each email we send.  We may use your Personal Information to communicate with you about your account and provide customer support.  We may also use your Personal Information to let you know about temporary or permanent changes to our services and changes to this Policy.

  • To Collect Money Owed to Us

We may use your Personal Information to send you updates if your credit card has expired or if we need a different credit card to process a payment.  We may use your Personal Information to send you emails, invoices, receipts, and notices of delinquency.  We use a third-party vendor to process credit card payments and take orders, and may share your Personal Information for those purposes.

  • For Legal Compliance

We may use your Personal Information to meet legal requirements, like complying with court orders, valid discovery requests, valid subpoenas, and other appropriate legal mechanisms.  We may share your Personal Information with representatives and advisors, like attorneys and accountants, to help us comply with legal, accounting, or security requirements, or to prosecute or defend a court, arbitration, or similar legal proceeding.
