Please take a moment to get acquainted with our policies and let us know if you have any questions.

We reserve the right to change or modify this Privacy Statement at our sole discretion at any time without prior notice to the users of the Site and your continued use of the Site following the posting of such changes shall mean that you have accepted those changes. When we change the policy in a material way a notice will be posted on our Site along with the updated Privacy Statement.

You are not required to register with CLS or provide any personal information in order to browse the Site and learn more about CLS and our company, products and research through the Site. However, you may provide information to us through our Site, such as by registering to receive our newsletter and updates. This Privacy Statement applies to information that we may collect from you through the Site.

By using the Site or providing any personal information to CLS through the Site, you consent to the terms set forth in this Privacy Statement. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Statement, please discontinue your use of this Site and do not provide any personal information to us through the Site.

Collection and Use of Personal Information
CLS collects two types of personal information about users: “personal information” (which may include name, postal address, telephone number, e-mail address and other data) and “aggregate Information” (such as non-identifying and aggregate usage and volume statistical information from visitors to the Site and other information regarding user activities on the Site).

CLS collects personal information in order to communicate with you and to provide the information or other services that you have requested. For example, if you register to receive our email updates or newsletters, we will use your personal information in order to fulfill such requests and deliver such updates or newsletters. Collecting information also enables CLS to focus on categories of greatest interest to our visitors. Furthermore, CLS may also collect and log certain information to help diagnose technical problems, administer and improve the quality of the Site, analyze trends, track user movement around the Site and gather demographic information about the CLS Site’s user base.

Except as explicitly stated at the time we request information, or as provided for in this Privacy Statement or our Terms of Use, CLS does not disclose personal information collected on its Site to any third parties.

Disclosure to Third Parties
CLS uses the personal information provided on or through its Site in accordance with good commercial practices and applicable law. CLS does not share, sell or trade your personal information with third parties for marketing or promotional purposes. However, CLS may make your personal information available to its strategic partners directly involved in the operation, performance, support and/or maintenance of the Site or fulfilling your request or registration. For example, these companies may help CLS process information, deliver updates, newsletters or other products to you, manage and enhance our user data, provide customer service, assess your interest in our company, products or services, or conduct customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are also obligated to protect your personal information in accordance with CLS’s policies and are permitted to use the personal information only to provide CLS with specific services, and not for any other purposes.

CLS may also disclose personal information as required by law, to comply with requests of law enforcement or other government authorities or where CLS believes it is necessary or appropriate to protect the safety, rights or property of CLS, its employees or others.

Cookies
CLS strives to make the use of our Site an easy and meaningful experience for you. Upon logging on to our Site, our Web server sends a cookie to your computer.
