Collection of Information Registration and Use of Information

No user is required to provide information in order to visit CRAS’s site. However, a user must register in order to be placed on CRAS’s Email News Service list and other interactive services. In addition, a user must register to enter contests and other promotions. During registration, a user provides certain categories of information, such as name, address, email address, date of birth, and information regarding that user’s application for enrolment, purchase of CRAS merchandise or other services. The information that you supply to CRAS enables us to customize our site to your interests and enhance your overall experience at our site. In addition, it helps us communicate with you about CRAS news and events. Besides sending you CRAS Email News, CRAS may use your contact information periodically in order to send you email regarding upcoming CRAS events. In addition, we may request information for other specific purposes. If the information provided will be used in any way that differs from the treatment outlined in this Privacy Policy, we will identify the differences when we request the information.

We use the personal information you provide for internal purposes, such as confirming and tracking applications, analyzing trends and statistics, informing you of our news and offerings, and providing you with information from and about CRAS. From time to time we might establish a business relationship with other persons or entities whom we believe trustworthy and whom we have asked to confirm that their privacy policies are consistent with ours. These are known as our “Select Partners.” In such cases we might share and cross–reference information, including personal information about you that will enable these Select Partners to contact you regarding products and or services that may be of interest to you.

To serve you better, we may combine information you give us online, at our events or through other correspondence with us. We may also combine that information with publicly available information and information we receive from or cross–reference with our Select Partners and others. We use that combined information to enhance and personalize your experiences with us, to communicate with you about our products and events that may be of interest to you, and for other promotional purposes.

If, at any time, you are receiving information from CRAS or its Select Partners that you no longer wish to receive, you may contact us to opt out and to request that your name be removed from a contact list. We pledge to honor all such requests and to affirm that our Select Partners do so as well.

Passive Collection of Information

CRAS collects passive information for purposes such as testing and improving a user’s experience at the site and for compiling broad aggregate demographic data and related usage data for CRAS’s internal purposes. The types of passive information include, but are not limited to, your IP address, which type of browser you are using, where you go on our site and how long you stay on any part of our site. We may also track how you interact with our site, by assigning a random string of numbers and characters to your session.

We use a “cookie” based data collection paradigm in certain areas of our site. Cookies are small files placed on your hard drive that assist us in providing customized services; for example, the use of cookies allows us to reduce the frequency with which you will need to enter your password on password-protected areas of our site. Additionally, in some cases, certain functionalities are only feasible through the use of a cookie. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although in that case you may not be able to use certain features on our site and/or you may be required to re-enter your password more frequently during a session.

CRAS may, however, share broad aggregate demographic data and related usage information with our business partners. This aggregate information does not contain any personal information, which can identify any individual user. While CRAS strives to protect the personal information of our users, CRAS will release personal information if required by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary.

CRAS has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and/or unauthorized alteration of the information under our control. CRAS protects personally identifiable information to the extent reasonably feasible by utilizing both online and offline security methods, including firewalls, passwords and restricted physical access to the places where your information is stored.
