To summarize our commitment to Privacy, we have detailed the following promises:

What Information We Collect From You
CWS only collects Personal Information that you voluntarily provide to us.

How We Use Your Information
CWS uses your Personal Information for the purposes of responding to and processing your requests for our web-based products and services.

Who We Share Your Information With
CWS will only share your Personal Information with our authorized service providers that perform certain services or functions on our behalf or as required by law. CWS does not sell or rent your Personal Information to anyone.

Information Collected by CWS
When you visit the CWS site you may provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis and Website use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our Website.

Personal Information You Choose to Provide
If you submit a request for more information from CWS, the information you submit will only be used by CWS. Our lists are private and are not sold to any third parties.

Website Use Information
Similar to other commercial Websites, the CWS site utilizes Web server logs to collect information regarding how our Website is used. Information gathered through cookies and Web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our Website, and the Websites visited just prior to and after our Website. This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual. We also use "cookies" on our site. Cookies are small pieces of information that our server places on a visitor's computer hard drive to enable that person to use our site more easily. For example, we place a cookie on your computer when you visit our site. The next time that person visits our site using the same computer our server will recognize the cookie and the visitor. Many web browsers are automatically set to accept cookies. You may change your browser settings to reject cookies or notify you when a cookie is about to be placed on your computer. Please note, however, that if you reject cookies, certain parts of our Website may not operate as efficiently as they would if cookies were enabled.

Utilization of Information Provided
CWS uses personal information for purposes of administering our business activities, improving the content of our Website, providing customer service and making available other products and services to our customers and interested parties. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our Website, new services and special offers. The lists used to send you product and service offers are developed and managed under our traditional corporate standards designed to safeguard the security and privacy of our customers' personal information. As a customer, you will be given the opportunity, at least once annually, to notify us of your desire not to receive these offers.

Research
From time to time CWS will retain the assistance of external service organizations to help us understand any trends in our industry. We may disclose some of your personal information to those companies solely for the purpose of conducting research and analysis on behalf of CWS. We use contractual and other means to protect your information while our agents are processing it. We are always interested in how our customers heard about CWS. We may ask you for information about how you heard about us and what types of media you watch and read. We gather this information to enable us to understand which marketing and advertising tools are most effective for our business.

Information Protection
Any information provided to CWS through our Website is considered confidential by CWS, unless it is publicly available or has already been provided to us without any confidentiality obligation. CWS takes appropriate and reasonable precautions and has implemented appropriate managerial and technical procedures to protect the security of information provided to us by visitors to our Website. The information you provide is used only by those CWS employees who have a reasonable business need to access to your information to assist you with your request.

Consent
By using the CWS site you consent to our collection and use of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy.

If we change our privacy policies and procedures, we will post those changes on our Website to keep you aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances we may disclose it.
