Collection of your Personal Information

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by CTO.int. This information can include the following information: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by CTO.int for the operation of the service, to maintain and improve the quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the CTO.int website.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through CTO.int public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Please note that CTO.int does not read any of your private online communications.

CTO.int encourages you to review the privacy statements of all webstes that you choose to link to from CTO.int so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information.

Use of your Personal Information

CTO.int may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

CTO.int does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. CTO.int may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of our members or external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, CTO.int may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you e-mails or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to CTO.int, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

CTO.int does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

CTO.int keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within CTO.int, in order to determine what CTO.int services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content within CTO.int to those whose behaviour indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

CTO.int websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on CTO.int or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of CTO.int; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of CTO.int, or the public.

Security of your Personal Information

CTO.int secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. CTO.int secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
