These service providers may change or we may contract with additional service providers to better accommodate our customers. CI will not share personal information with any other third parties without your permission, unless required by law enforcement action, subpoena, or local law.
CI or its related entities could merge with or be acquired by another business entity or some or all of their respective assets could be acquired.

You can subscribe to receive certain products or services specific information and CI’s “eNEWS” publication. CI’s eNEWS publication and communications may include new product information, special offers, or an invitation to participate in market research. We give you a choice regarding delivery of CI’s eNEWS publication and communications by postal mail, email and telephone. You can make or change your choices at the data collection point or through Account Manager (CI's online customer registration tool). Please refer to section 7 for further instructions. We will make every effort to honor your preferences. This option does not apply to communications for the purpose of administering order completion, contracts, support, or product safety warnings.
7. Your Privacy Preferences and Opting-out (Unsubscribing)

Examples of unrelated uses include sending communications about special offers, product information, and marketing messages. You can, however, choose to subscribe, or unsubscribe anytime to these types of non-subscription communications by following the instructions below.
Subscription services; You can make your choice regarding these communications by using Member Services to set your privacy preferences, which are applicable across all CI websites.

8. Your Information and Third-party Companies

Examples include the ability to register products from multiple vendors from a single CI Web page, to request communications from CI marketing or solution partners, or to enable order completion through a Reseller. We will not share your personal information with those third-party companies unless you make that choice.
9. Access to and Accuracy of Your Information
CI strives to keep your personal information accurate. We have implemented technology, management processes and policies to maintain customer data accuracy. We will provide you with access to your information, including making reasonable efforts to provide you with online access and the opportunity to change your information. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity, such as a password and user ID, before granting access to your data. Certain areas of CI's websites may limit access to specific individuals through the use of passwords and other personal identifiers.
The most effective way to view and change your personal information is to return to the Web page where you originally submitted your data and follow the instructions on that Web page or use CI Passport.
10. Keeping Your Information Secure
CI is committed to protecting the information you provide us. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, to maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of the information, CI has in place appropriate physical and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect.
Our servers employ the latest Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption protocols when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information. SSL encryption is designed to make the information unreadable by anyone but us. This security measure is working when you see either the symbol of an unbroken key or closed lock (depending on your browser) located on the bottom of your browser window.
11. Changes to This Statement
If there are updates to the terms of CI's Online Privacy Statement, we will post those changes and update the revision date in this document, so you will always know what information we collect online, how we use it, and what choices you have.

2. An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web, allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop.
