Cookies and Clear GIFs
Clear GIFs, sometimes called “Web bugs,” are file objects, usually a graphic image such as a transparent one pixel-by-one pixel GIF (Graphics Interchange Format, one of the two most common file formats for images on the Web), that are placed on a Web page or in an Email message to monitor user behavior. The GIF tells us the IP address of the computer that fetched our page, the URL of the page the GIF is on, the time the page was viewed, the type of browser used, and can tell us a previously set cookie value. This anonymous information is returned by the clear GIF to The CLI Group, and we use this information to accurately count visitors across multiple The CLI Group sites and understand how they navigate and use our network of sites. The CLI Group does not combine information gathered through clear GIFs with your personal information.
Visitors should be aware that non-personal information and data may be automatically collected through the standard operation of the The CLI Group website Internet servers or through the use of “cookies.” “Cookies” are small text files a website can use to recognize repeat users, facilitate the user’s ongoing access to and use of the site and allow a site to track usage behavior and compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements and targeted advertising.
Other information passively collected by The CLI Group is in the form of logs – files that record website activity and gather statistics about web users’ browsing habits. These entries are generated anonymously, and help The CLI Group determine (among other things) how many and how often users have visited our Website, which pages they’ve visited, and other similar data. We also use the log file entries for our internal marketing and demographic studies, so we can constantly improve the online services we provide you. Log files are used internally only, and are not associated with any particular user, computer, or browser.
Safeguarding your Personal Information
The CLI Group will only collect personal information to the extent deemed reasonably necessary to serve our legitimate business purposes, and we will take appropriate steps to ensure the security and integrity of any information you provide to us. Any information provided to us is housed in a secure datacenter, which can only be accessed via SecureID by appropriate personnel.
The CLI Group has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control.
In order to improve the user experience at our website, we may employ online surveys for visitors to volunteer anonymous demographic information about themselves and provide us feedback about why they visit this site and what we can do to make it better. Information collected through these surveys is anonymous; we cannot identify who is submitting the information or tie it to other personally identifiable information a user may have provided us through another means.
Whatever the activity may be, we will only collect information to the extent deemed reasonably necessary to fulfill your requests and our legitimate business objectives. If you do not want to submit personal information when requested, you will not be able to access certain areas on our site. However, you do not need to provide personal information to The CLI Group in order to use our website.
