Other than as set out below, Usage Data is collected in a way that does not identify an individual (although it may identify the company for which an individual works). Usage Data helps us understand trends in the Site users’ needs so that we can better consider new features or otherwise tailor our Site. This Privacy Policy in no way restricts or limits our collection and use of Usage Data and we may share Usage Data about users of the Site with third parties for various purposes including, but not limited to, to help us better understand the needs of visitors to our Site and to help us improve the experience of using our Site.

We may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, the number of viewers of specific content, etc. We use this information to help us understand how people use the Site and to enhance the Site.

If you were directed to the Site through Personal Information you provided to us outside of the Site, by using the Site you agree that Usage Data associated with the specific purpose for which you were directed to the Site may include such Personal Information and such inclusion shall not limit Company’s rights with respect to the Usage Data.

Further, in an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Site, Company may conduct research on the Site users’ demographics, interests and behavior based on Usage Data and other information provided to us. This data may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis and Company may share this data with advertisers, researchers, business partners, publications, and other third parties. This information will not identify you personally.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing or the applicability of the other paragraphs in this “Usage Data and Site Activity” section to our mobile applications, our mobile applications may also collect certain additional information automatically including, but not limited to, the type of mobile device you use, your mobile device’s unique device ID, the IP address of your mobile device, your mobile operating system, the type of mobile Internet browsers you use, available storage space on your mobile device, the connection type being used by your mobile device (e.g. WiFi vs cellular), and information about the way you use the mobile application. We may also use GPS technology (or other similar technology) to determine your current location. If you do not want us to have your location information, you should turn off the location services for the mobile application located in your account settings or in your mobile device settings and/or within the mobile application. In addition, we may use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our mobile applications on your mobile devices. This software may record information such as how often you use the application, the events that occur within the application, aggregated usage, performance data, and where the application was downloaded. We may link certain information we store within the analytics software to authorized users for customer usage and metrics and to aid in customer success.


Our mobile applications can collect images/photos from the mobile device’s camera application. Users of our mobile applications decide what images/photos from the mobile device will be collected by the mobile application and should only upload images/photos to the mobile application that are required for the mobile application to carry out its intended function. Images/photos collected by the mobile application are used by the mobile application to carry out its function.


In addition to anything else set out in this Privacy Policy, we may use and share your Personal Information for the purpose for which it was provided and for other limited purposes, including without limitation for the following purposes:

Surveys and Other Special Offers: From time to time, we may offer visitors to the Site the opportunity to participate in surveys and other special offers. If you elect to participate in these services, you will need to provide certain Personal Information.

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your Personal Information to outside parties unless we provide you with advance notice. The foregoing statement does not include disclosure set out in this Privacy Policy or disclosure to website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our Site, conducting our business, or serving our Site’s users, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.

Non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.


From time to time, we may establish a business relationship with other businesses that we believe to be trustworthy and have privacy practices consistent with ours (“Service Providers”). For example, we may contract with Service Providers to provide certain services, such as hosting and maintenance, accounting, data analytics, data storage and management, and marketing and promotions. We only provide our Service Providers with the information (including Personal Information, Usage Data, and images/photos) necessary for them to perform these services on our behalf. In some cases, a Service Provider may directly collect the information (including Personal Information, Usage Data, and images/photos) on our behalf in order to provide the services. If you were directed to the Site through Personal Information you provided to us outside of the Site, by using the Site you agree that your use of the Site may result in such Personal Information being provided to or being directly collected by a Service Provider in the course of providing services. Each Service Provider must agree to use reasonable security procedures and practices, appropriate to the nature of the information involved, in order to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Service Providers are prohibited from using Personal Information other than as specified by Company. Some Service Providers may collect anonymized, aggregated data for their own use.


In certain situations, CMiC may be required to disclose information, including, without limitation, Personal Information and images/photos, in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. Company will cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We may disclose Personal Information and any other content and information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties if, in our discretion, we believe it is necessary or appropriate in order to respond to or comply with legal requests (including court orders and subpoenas), to protect the safety, property or rights of Company or of any third party, to prevent or stop any illegal, unethical, or legally actionable activity, or to comply with the law.


We may share Personal Information, Usage Data, and images/photos with businesses controlling, controlled by, or under common control with Company. If Company is merged, acquired, or sold, or in the event of a transfer of some or all of our assets or equity, we may disclose or transfer Personal Information, Usage Data, and images/photos in connection with such transaction.


This Privacy Policy shall not apply to any unsolicited information you provide to Company through the Site or through any other means. This includes, but is not limited to, information posted to any public areas of the Site, any ideas for new products or modifications to existing products, and other unsolicited submissions (collectively, “Unsolicited Information”).
