Collection of Information Registration and Use of 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.
Third-Party Links and Use of Information
Passive Collection of Information
In addition to the information that you actively provide to CRAS, such as what you provide when you enter an application, CRAS collects information about how you interact with our site. 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. Passive information does not identify you to CRAS by name, and CRAS does not link your IP address to your personally identifiable information.
Collection of Information From Children
CRAS abides by federal law and the guidelines set up by the Federal Trade Commission regarding youth privacy. As such, CRAS will not knowingly collect any personal information from young people under the age of 13, unless CRAS provides notice that such information is being collected and obtains verifiable parental consent.
Sharing of Information
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. Our staff is trained to comply with our security procedures, and our security procedures are regularly reviewed and revised, if necessary.
