Our Privacy Policy

CBE respects your privacy. Any personal information we collect will be used only internally to serve you, our customers and members, more effectively. To assure you of your privacy, we provide the following notice to help you understand our commitment to security, what kinds of information we may gather about you when you visit the site, how we may use that information, and how you can correct that information.

Our Commitment to Security

Safeguards
We have appropriate physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of any information you may have provided on our site. We always use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving consumer data exchanged on our site.

Credit Card Safety
Ordering with CBE is a secure transaction. All transactions in CBE's e-commerce outlets are handled by verified PCI compliant payment processors. CBE does not record or retain any credit card data when handling or placing orders. Orders placed online or manually entered are submitted directly to our third-party payment processors securely using encrypted (scrambled) technologies.

Information We Collect

Automatically Collected Anonymous Information
As on most websites, certain anonymous information about your visit is automatically logged when you visit a CBE website. This may include information about your IP address, domain name, browser type, access time, and referring website address. This information is not personally identifiable and is only used in aggregate for internal analytics.

Personally Identifiable Information
Personally Identifiable Information is any information about you as an individual that would enable someone to contact you; for example, your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address. CBE will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it voluntarily.

How We Use This Information

Automatically Collected Anonymous Information
CBE uses your information only as permitted by law. Aggregated information is generally used for marketing and progress research. For example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with information obtained from other users to learn which pages are visited most frequently or which features are most attractive. Aggregated information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners, but cannot be used to contact you individually.

Personally Identifiable Information
When you provide CBE with your personally identifiable information, we will use it only for the purpose for which it was provided. We also may use it to notify you about updates to our website and to contact you for marketing purposes. We do not rent, sell, or exchange your personally identifiable information with any third party.

You may also choose to disclose personally identifiable information about yourself for the purposes described below.

E-mail Newsletters
When you request a free e-mail newsletter from us, we will collect and store your e-mail address to provide you with the requested newsletter. We may also send you occasional special offers and information from CBE that we think would be of interest to you. You may change your subscribed e-mail address, opt-out of receiving special e-mailed offers, or remove yourself from any mailing list by following the instructions contained in every newsletter.

Registered User and Member Content Online
When you request access to registered or Members-Only content on CBE websites, we will collect and store your e-mail address to provide you with the requested content. We may also send you occasional special offers and information from CBE by email that we think would be of interest to you.

When you make a donation to CBE, or request a membership, subscription, bookstore product, or event registration, we will collect and store your name, address, and other basic personally identifiable information to provide you with the requested product or service and for billing purposes. We may also offer you, by direct mail or email, products from CBE that we think would be of interest to you.
