The Website may collect certain information about your visit, such as the name of the internet service provider (“ISP”) and the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address through which you access the Internet; the date and time you access the Website; the pages that you access while at the Website and the internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our Website. This information is used to help improve the Website, analyze trends and administer the Website.

Windows Update, for example, needs to know information about your computer to recommend needed operating system updates.
Use of Collected Personal Information?
The personal information collected on this Website will be used to operate the Website and to provide the product(s) or carry out the transaction(s) you have requested or authorized.
In support of these uses, CREC may use personal information to provide you with more effective customer service, improve the Website and any related CREC products, and to make the Website easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information or by customizing the Website to your particular preference or interests. In order to offer you a more consistent experience in your interactions with CREC, information collected by CREC may be combined with information collected by other CREC services.
CREC may use your personal information to provide you with important information about the product that you are using, including critical updates and notifications. Additionally, with your permission, CREC may send you information about other CREC products, and/or share information with CREC partners so they may send you information about their products.
CREC may merge website-visitation data with anonymous demographic information for research purposes and CREC may use this information in aggregate to provide more relevant content. In some limited-entry sections of CREC, with your approval, CREC will combine website-visitation data with your personal information to provide you with personalized content. If you decline permission, CREC will not provide you the personalized service and won’t merge your personal information with website-visitation data.
When you sign up for a newsletter or agree to receive promotional e-mail, CREC may use customized links or similar technologies to track e-mail links that you click. CREC may associate that information with your personal information in order to provide you more focused e-mail communications or purchase information. Each e-mail communication includes an unsubscribe link allowing you to stop delivery of that type of communication.
CREC occasionally hires other companies to provide limited services on CREC’s behalf, such as website hosting, packaging, mailing and delivering information, answering customer questions about products, and sending information about our products. CREC will only provide those companies the personal information required to deliver the service. Those companies are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
CREC may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (1) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on CREC or the Website; (2) protect and defend the rights or property of CREC and CREC’s family of websites; or (3) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of CREC employees or agents, users of CREC products, or members of the public.
