We use personal information in the following ways and for the following limited purposes:
- To provide you with information about alerts, product upgrades, new products, services, research on future product ideas or improvements, to send newsletters, informative e-mails or other information which has the nature of business announcements. The CMO Council reserves the right to use customers' contact information to send them information it deems important for the full utilization of its products and services. Every registered customer may choose not to receive such information from by simply replying to any message to that effect (with the exception of messages which are necessary for the functionality of our products and services);

- To notify you about changes to our service.
Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. If you share a computer with anyone, always log out before leaving a website or service to protect access to your information from subsequent users.
Unfortunately, no transmission of information over the internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to our website from your PC or the Internet Service Provider, and any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to ensure its security on our systems and to try to prevent unauthorized access.
With Whom Do We Share Your Information?
The CMO Council retains the services of outside contractors to provide limited services on our behalf us, such as shipping products or handling order processing, processing transactions (including credit card transactions), or performing statistical analysis of our services. It may be necessary to share user personal information with these contractors in order to allow them to provide their services. You have the right not to provide the requested information, but in such case you may not be able to receive these services. Those contractors will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service and we require that they keep the personal information of our customers secure and confidential and comply with the Act. We also require that these contractors use our customers' personal information only on behalf of the CMO Council and do not disclose them to third parties or use them for any other purpose.
Please be advised that in certain instances it may be necessary for the CMO Council to disclose your personal information if we believe such action is necessary to:
(a) comply with law or legal process served on Pause to Support a Cause;
(b) protect and defend the rights, property or legitimate interests of the CMO Council (including the enforcement of our agreements); or
(c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of CMO Council services or members of the public.
How Can You Correct Inaccuracies in the Information?
We strive to process only accurate personal information and make a sincere effort to respond to your requests to update or correct your personal information. If you believe that the CMO Council does not have your current personal information, you can update it by contacting the CMO Council Team at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please be advised that in accordance with the Act, every user (customer) who has provided personal information to the CMO Council may ask the CMO Council to advise of the scope of information the CMO Council processes about him or her, the purpose and nature of the processing and the recipients of the information.
