CBIA collects two types of information:
When you sign up for services or membership, you may be asked to provide personal information. This information will not be released without authorization from you and we will not disclose personal identification information.
Web site activity data
Activity data is gathered through several methods and is tracked as a whole rather than individually. This allows us to track the CBIA Web site—we never use it to personally identify you. By tracking, we can build the most effective Web site for all visitors. Generally, we look at how well pages, products or sections of the Web site perform based on traffic. Specifically, we can determine which areas are most effective or appropriate based on the amount of traffic to particular areas. Information usage
CBIA will not disclose any business or personal information that identifies you to any third party without your consent unless we clearly define the nature and manner of disclosure or disclosure is legally required or to protect our rights.
Cookies and Tracking
We are committed to quickly correcting any factual errors or errors in interpretation. CBIA staff members will address any errors brought to their attention and make an appropriate correction as soon as possible. This includes misspellings as well as factual or information errors identified in blog posts or archival articles after they have been published. The goal is to correct all content so that no errors remain in our permanent archive. We also will provide clarifications in cases where, in our judgment, the wording or the headline on an article may lead to misinterpretation.
