The whole thing:

  • “Client Information”: the Internet domain, registered company (if applicable), GeoIP information, and Internet address of the computer you are using.
  • “Essential Technical Information”: identification of the page or service you are requesting, type of browser and operating system you are using; and the date and time of access.

The way we use information

Client Information is used to route the requested web page to your computer for viewing; in theory, the requested web page and the routing information could be discerned by other entities involved in transmitting the requested page to you - we do not control the privacy practices of those entities. We may use Client Information to analyze trends, administer the CELUM Website, track user movement, and gather broad aggregate demographic information for reporting and sponsorship purposes. From time to time, we may also use non-identifiable aggregate information to better design and operate the CELUM Website.  We may keep Client Information obtained from our systems indefinitely after the web page is transmitted and use such information to help improve the products or services we offer.

Essential Technical Information and Nonessential Technical Information help us respond to your request in an appropriate format (or in a personalized manner) and helps us plan website improvements. Additionally, on rare occasions when a "hacker" attempts to breach computer security, logs of Automatically Collected Access Information are collected to permit a security investigation and in such cases may be forwarded together with any other relevant information in our possession to law enforcement agencies.

Optional Information enables us to provide services or information tailored more specifically to your needs, and also allows us to plan website improvements. We may use incomplete Optional Information you have provided to contact you for the purpose of offering additional assistance.

Personally Identifiable Information

Personally identifiable information, which includes Client Information, whether about yourself or someone else (hereinafter “Personally Identifiable Information”), is used to complete your specific request and to help improve the products or services we offer.

In such instances we would seek confidential treatment of any of your Personally Identifiable Information so disclosed, but there is no guarantee that confidential treatment can be obtained.

Finally, we agree that we will never use or share Personally Identifiable Information provided to us by you in any way that violates or is otherwise unrelated to the means described in this policy, without providing you with both a clear notice on the CELUM Website and an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
