PRIVACY POLICY

 

Effective May 15, 2018

Companies in Motion (CIM) may collect personal data when you participate in public user posting areas such as blog posts, discussion forums, surveys, and quizzes. The personal data collected may include information that you provide, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, and telephone number. For instance, by registering for the CIM quiz, you agree to receive CIM correspondence at the e-mail address that you provided at registration. Only CIM or its agents will contact you using this e-mail address. We will also send e-mails to this address related to your registration. We may also automatically collect information about how you use the Site, such as what you have searched for and viewed on the Site.

 

Use of information

The personal data we collect may be used where we have your specific consent to do so, or where CIM has a legitimate interest in or other legal basis for processing such information. CIM uses your personal data to fulfill your requests for information, process your requests to participate in conferences and events, personalize content that you view or receive on the Site, evaluate and improve our services, and distribute newsletters and communications to you, analyze the Site’ performance and functioning, prevent fraud, enforce our terms of use, comply with all applicable laws and corporate reporting obligations, and accomplish other purposes you may initiate or request. We may keep any of your personal data on file and use it to contact you.

Our Site does not collect personal data about your online activities over time and across third party websites or online services. Therefore, “do not track” signals transmitted from web browsers do not apply to our Site, and we do not alter any of our data collection and use practices upon receipt of such a signal.

 

Data recipients and international data transfers

Personal data collected on the Site may be transferred from time to time to CIM personnel across our global organization.  Where required by law, we have put in place legal mechanisms designed to ensure adequate data protection of your personal data that is processed by CIM. By using the CIM site and providing information on the site, you voluntarily consent to such trans-border transfer and hosting of such information.

CIM will not intentionally disclose or transfer (and will take reasonable steps to prevent the unauthorized or accidental disclosure of) your personal data to third parties without your consent, whether for such third parties’ own marketing purposes or otherwise, except as follows. CIM may provide access to your personal data to third party service providers engaged by CIM to provide services related to the Site, provided that such third- party service providers will first agree to maintain the strict confidentiality of such information and provide the same level of data security as provided by CIM.

We also may share your personal data with third party service providers who perform services and functions on our behalf to support our interactions with you, including, for example, administering surveys or contests, or communicating with you. These third-party service providers are not permitted to use or disclose your personal data except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements.

In addition, we may disclose information about you:

  • If we are required to do so by law or legal process;

  • To law enforcement authorities or other government officials;

  • When we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity;

  • If disclosure is necessary to protect the vital interests of a person;

  • To enforce our Terms of use;

  • To protect our property, services and legal rights;

  • To prevent fraud against CIM and/or business partners;

  • To support auditing, compliance, and corporate governance functions; or

  • To comply with any and all applicable laws.

We maintain processes designed to ensure that any processing of personal data by third party service providers is consistent with this Privacy Policy and protects the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of your personal data.

In addition, we may disclose or transfer your personal data in the event of a re-organization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, or other transfer or disposition of all or any portion of our business.

 

Social networking

The Site may allow you to sign into and associate your social network accounts including, but not limited to, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and YouTube, with CIM. The Site also may allow you to log in to a CIM account using certain social network account credentials.

By associating your social network account with CIM or logging in to a CIM account using your social network account credentials, you give us permission to access information that you have made available in your public profile for that social network account. The information available in your public profile varies based on the social network and your settings, but may include your email address, real name, profile picture, gender, and location. We use the information we receive from your social network account in accordance with the social network’s terms of use and this Privacy Policy. Please refer to the privacy settings in your social network account for information about what data is shared with CIM and other connected applications and to manage the data that is shared through your account, including information about your activities using our Site.

If you would like to disconnect a social media account from us, refer to the settings of that social network account and its provider.

 

Security

CIM has implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operational security to protect personal data from loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Only authorized CIM personnel and third-party service providers are provided access to personal data, and these employees and service providers are required to treat this information as confidential. Despite these precautions however, CIM cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will not obtain access to your personal data.

 

Data retention policy

CIM retains personal data, as necessary, for the duration of the relevant business relationship. We may also retain personal data for longer than the duration of the business relationship should we need to retain it to protect ourselves against legal claims, use it for analysis or historical record-keeping, or comply with our information management policies and schedules. If you request that we delete your personal data, CIM will make reasonable attempts to delete all instances of the information in their entirety. For requests for access, corrections, or deletion, please refer to the “Your Rights” section of this Privacy Policy.

 

Children

The Site is not designed for or directed at children 13 years of age or younger, and CIM does not intentionally collect or maintain personal data about anyone under this age.

 

Consent; changes to Privacy Policy

By using the Site, you consent to the collection, use, and storage of your personal data by us in the manner described in this Privacy Policy and elsewhere on the Site. We reserve the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy from time to time. We will alert you to any such changes by updating this Privacy Policy. If we make material changes to this Privacy Policy that increase our rights to use personal data that we have previously collected about you, we will obtain your consent either through an email to your registered email address or by prominently posting information about the changes on our Site.
