Privacy Policy

Current Concepts Institute (“CCI”) is committed to protecting any personal information that you may provide to us. In particular, we believe it is important for you to know how we treat information about you that we may receive from this Web site. Please read this Internet Privacy Policy carefully before using this site. This Privacy Policy currently is applicable only to CCI’s United States customers and visitors and only when they access and use this site, and may not be applicable to transactions performed and information collected in channels other than this site. This site is not directed to or intended for individuals under 18 years of age.

This Internet Privacy Policy describes the types of information CCI collects from visitors to this site, what we do with this information and how visitors can update and control the use of information they provide on the site. This statement applies solely to information that visitors provide through our site.

Information collected

In general, you can visit this Web site without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. When you visit our site, our web servers collect the name of the domain you used to access the Internet (such as aol.com), which pages on our site you visited and when they were visited, your Internet browser type and platform, the link that brought you to our site and any links clicked within our site. This information may be used by us, our service providers, affiliates and business partners to measure the number of visits, average time spent, page views and other statistics about visitors to our site. We also use this data to monitor site performance and make the site easier and more convenient to use.

Our web servers also seek (as many Web sites do) to place a “cookie” (a small data file) on your computer’s hard drive which allows the server to determine the computer when it visits again in order to track statistical information about navigation to and throughout certain areas of our site. This cookie is not used to obtain your name or any personal data, and the information that is tracked is used only for internal purposes, such as to improve site navigation and to measure the effectiveness of our site, and is not shared with anyone other than contractors who assist CCI in these efforts and who are bound to confidentiality. However, if you prefer not to accept cookies, you can set your browser to reject them or to alert you before one is placed.

We may use a third-party technology to place our advertisements on other Web sites. This technology will install a small “cookie” file on your computer when you view our ad. These cookies will not contain any information that personally identifies you (such as your name or e-mail address) but they will contain a randomly generated number that is unique to your browser and can be recognized by a “Web beacon” (transparent GIF file) on our site if you click through to our site from one of our ads. This allows us to keep track of how many unique visitors we have to our site and from what ads they entered, so that we can measure the effectiveness of our ads and ad placements. The privacy policies of the Web sites on which we advertise, and through which the cookies are installed should inform you about the cookie, and you may of course set your browser to reject cookies.

In addition, there are portions of this Web site where we may need to collect personally identifiable information about you if you choose to register and/or purchase products from us. This personally identifiable information may include your address, phone number, credit card information and other information. The type of product or service that you seek will determine the personal information that is collected.

Use of collected information

CCI does not sell, transfer or disclose personal information to third parties. Once collected, we may use your personal information for the following purposes:

  • Register you for programs and services you have requested
  • Process, fulfill and follow-up on your orders
  • Answer your emails or on-line requests
  • Send information you request
  • Deliver newsletters, meeting and event updates
  • Notify you about new products/services, special offers and other information that may be relevant to your use of our website

CCI reserves the right to use or disclose any information as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request, to protect the integrity of the site, to fulfill your requests, or to cooperate in any law enforcement investigation or an investigation on a matter of public safety.

Our security procedures

At CCI, our goal is to protect your personal information submitted to us through this site. We maintain reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to guard nonpublic personal information about you against loss, misuse or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction of the information you have provided to us on this site. We limit access to personal and account information to those employees and agents who assist us in providing products and services to you. Employees who misuse customer information are subject to disciplinary action. We also require third parties to whom we disclose nonpublic personal information to adhere to this Privacy Policy and to establish information security procedures.

Certain areas of the site may require the use of a user ID and password as an additional security measure that helps protect your information.  This allows CCI to verify who you are, thereby allowing you access to your account information and preventing unauthorized access.  When you have finished using a secure areas of our site, make sure you always click on the “Log Out” link which appears on every secure page.  When you click on the “Log Out” link, you will be given the option to end your secure session.  No further secure transactions can be conducted without re-entering your user ID and password.  You should be aware that browser software often “caches” a page as you look at it, meaning that some pages are saved in your computer’s temporary memory.  Therefore, you may find that clicking on your “Back” button show you a saved version of a previously vied page.  Caching in no way affects the security of your confidential user ID or password.
