CEMI collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address and telephone number. CEMI also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by CEMI. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring web site addresses. This information is used by CEMI for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the CEMI web site.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through CEMI public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: CEMI does not read any of your private online communications.
CEMI encourages you to review the privacy statements of web sites you choose to link to from so that you can understand how those web sites collect, use and share your information. CEMI is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on web sites outside of the CEMI and CEMI family of web sites.

CEMI does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. CEMI may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, CEMI may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to CEMI, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
CEMI does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
CEMI keeps track of the web sites and pages our customers visit, in order to determine what services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
