INTRODUCTION

This Site ("Site") is produced by CalMac.

Your use of this Site indicates to us that you have read and accepted our privacy practices, as outlined in this Privacy Policy. In addition, please review our Terms of use that governs your use of this Site.

Whilst using this Site, you may encounter links to other web sites or online materials. For example, www.cbs.com contains links to web sites that may be published and maintained by affiliates and/or related entities of CMS, without limitation. You may also encounter links from sponsors or partners, which linked web sites may include a reference to CMS or our logo as part of a co-branding agreement. Those other web sites may set their own cookies, collect data, and/or have their own privacy policies that differ from this privacy policy. This Privacy Policy only covers information collected by CMS on this Site, and we encourage you to review the privacy policy of any other web site you visit. You can program your computer to warn you each time a cookie is being sent or to refuse cookies completely.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to any personally identifiable information ("PII") you may disclose publicly in user forums (such as chat rooms, message boards, or similar web pages). PII is information that could reasonably be used to identify you personally (such as your name, address, or e-mail address). You should be aware that when you voluntarily disclose PII on message boards, chat areas or other user forums, that information can be collected and used by other people to send unsolicited messages and marketing materials. Also, please be aware that certain message boards (and similar user forums) may display IP addresses along with the message poster's name and message. We bear no responsibility for any action or policies of any third parties who collect any information users may disclose in user forums or other public areas of this Site.

3                     OTHER INFORMATION WE COLLECT

IP Addresses: An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer or network when you are on the Internet. When users register, our servers log the visitor's IP address. We may collect IP addresses for a variety of internal purposes, such as system administration, to report aggregate non-identifying information to our advertisers, and to audit the number of registrations to our Site.

 

4                     HOW WE USE AND DISCLOSE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We use the PII you provide about yourself to provide the information or content you have requested, to contact you about our programs, products, features or services or for other purposes disclosed at the time of collection. For instance, we may notify you that you have won a competition, send you an email newsletter or send you information about an upcoming television program or movie. If you e-mail someone else an electronic greeting card or other special feature from our Site, we will use the information you provide about someone else to send that person the requested e-mail.

We use non-identifying information collected on our Site in the aggregate to better understand your use of the Site and to enhance your enjoyment and experience. For example, we may use the information to improve the design and content of the Sites or to analyze the programs and services we offer. We may also share non-identifying aggregate information with third parties. For example, we may tell advertisers how many individuals register, or how many men or women receive our emails.

We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. For instance, we may use third parties to develop software applications and databases or to send communications on our behalf. Our employees, agents and contractors who have access to PII are required to protect the information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy.

We may provide access to your PII when legally required to do so, to cooperate with police investigations or other legal proceedings, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of this Site, to limit our legal liability and protect our rights or to protect the rights, property or safety of users of this Site or the public. In those instances, the information is provided only for that purpose.

CMS may also sell, transfer or otherwise disclose user information, including PII, in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, the sale of substantially all assets, or other fundamental corporate change.

We will not share your PII in ways unrelated to those described above without providing you with an opportunity to opt out of such use or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
