How the information is used
The information collected on our website allows us to keep a user profile so that we may customize preferences, provide a method for users to submit information and orders to CBS, fulfill the requests for products or services, contact you, provide direct mailings, and to audit and research your use of our website in order to improve our services. Visitors will be given a choice when registering on the website whether they would like to be on the CBS mailing list, or whether they would prefer not to receive such mailings. Only agents working on behalf of CBS and under confidentiality agreements will send you these direct mailings, and only if you have indicated you do not object to receiving these offers. If you do not want to receive such mailings, indicate your preference when you give us your personal information.
How CBS protects your information
CBS has implemented a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. Secured networks are used to contain a user's personal information. This information is only accessible by a limited number of employees who have special access rights to such systems. Also, when you place orders or access your personal information, we offer the use of a secure server. All the sensitive credit card information supplied by users is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into the CBS database to be accessed only as stated above.
