1. What personally identifiable information does CFS collect?

CFS’s primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you with the best and most useful content and services. CFS collects personally identifiable information when you provide it to us, such as when you register on our site, and when you visit CFS pages and subscribe to any of our services. Once you register with our site you are no longer anonymous to us.

2. What anonymous information does CFS collect?

Your Internet browser has a feature called “cookies” which store small amounts of data on your computer about your visit to any of our sites. However, cookies tell us nothing about who you are unless you specifically give us personally identifiable information. We use tracking technologies in a variety of ways, including:
  • Keeping count of return visits to our site or our advertiser’ or partners’ sites
  • Accumulating and report anonymous, aggregate (data collected in mass), statistical information on website and advertisement usage.
  • Determining which features users like best

3. How does CFS use the information?

The information we gather is mainly used for general purposes including:
  • Enhance the user experience in our network of sites. We use tracking information to determine how well each page performs overall based on aggregate user demographics and traffic patterns to those pages. This helps us continue to build a better service for you
  • Fulfill your requests for certain products and services
  • Customise the content you see

What are my options?

Users who would rather not provide any of the user data requested by our registration process do not need to register with us. You can still view much of the content without registering.

5. How will I know if the privacy policy is changed?

Any modifications to our privacy practices will be reflected first on our site. If there is a material change in our privacy practices, we will indicate on our site that our privacy practices have changed and provide a link to the new privacy statement.
