Clearview respects the privacy and security of its users. Our goal is to provide you with a personalized Internet experience that delivers the information, resources, and services that are most relevant and helpful to you. In order to achieve this goal, we sometimes collect information during your visits to understand what differentiates you from each of our millions of other users.
In order to demonstrate our commitment to your privacy, we have prepared this statement disclosing the privacy practices for the entire Clearview site. Additional terms and conditions, if any, regarding the collection and use of your information may also be provided to you before or when you sign up for a particular service (like Managed services.) Here, you will learn what personally identifiable information of yours is collected, how and when we might use your information, how we protect your information, who has access to your information, and how you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.
What Information is Collected:
Clearview collects certain information from and about its users in three ways — directly from the user, from our Web server logs, and with cookies.
User-Supplied Information: When you sign up for a service, such as a Newsletter, we may ask you for your name, e-mail address, zip code and some other personal information. The more accurate the information you volunteer, the better we are able to customize your Clearview experience.
Server Log Information: When you visit an Internet Web site, you disclose certain information about yourself, such as your Internet [Protocol] (IP) address, the time of your visit, and the referring location (e.g., the Site or page that offered a link to a Clearview page). Clearview, like many other sites, records this basic information about visits to its site.
You should remember that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online, such as on message boards, through e-mail, discussion groups, or in chat areas, your information can be collected and used by others. Although Clearview tries to protect your personal information, Clearview cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. You are also solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any passwords you set up and/or any account information.
How and When Information is Used:
We use information in different ways, depending on the type of information:
User-supplied information: This information is used for purposes such as personalization and verification.
Web Server Logs: This information helps us identify which areas of our site are of interest to our visitors. Clearview also collects the Internet [Protocol] (IP) addresses of its visitors for the purposes of system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers.
Cookies: We use “cookies” to let you use our services more easily and to let us keep track of certain statistical information that helps us improve our site. Cookies allow us to save passwords and preferences for you so that you won’t have to re-enter them the next time you visit.
How We Protect Your Information:
The privacy and protection of your personal information is vitally important to us. Clearview does not make personal information available to any third parties without your permission. Any user statistics that we may provide to prospective advertisers or partners regarding your Clearview usage are provided in the aggregate only and do not include any personally identifiable information about any individual user.
Your access to some services and content is password protected. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. Clearview will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. You should not disclose your user name and password to others. In addition, if applicable, you should remember to sign out of your Clearview account or service at the end of each session. You may also wish to close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Accordingly, despite our efforts to protect your personal information, Clearview cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, or to or from our online products or services. You transmit all such information at your own risk. However, once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
Who Has Access to the Information:
Except as described below, Clearview will not willfully disclose any individually identifiable information about its users to any third party without first receiving that user’s permission. Clearview may disclose personal information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or to protect the rights or property of Clearview.
When you are at any Clearview site and asked for personal information, you share that information with Clearview alone, unless the service is offered in conjunction with another party.
How to Correct Inaccuracies
If you use a Clearview service, we may send you a confirmation e-mail confirming your new account and/or service. The message will be sent to the address that you supplied us and will describe ways for you to change or delete the account information provided. Remember to keep the confirmation e-mail as it will also contain information that will help you in case you run into problems accessing our services. If you believe that your personal information has been used inappropriately you may contact us at abuse@CVGlobal.com to report such an occourrence.
