Your User Contributions are posted on and transmitted to others at your own risk. Although CSI limits access to certain pages, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable.

Information CSI Collects Through Automatic Data Collection Technologies
As you navigate through and interact with the Site, CSI may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns, including:
Details of your visits to the Site, including traffic data, location data, logs, and other communication data and the resources that you access and use on the Site.
Information about your computer and internet connection, including your IP address, operating system, and browser type.
CSI also may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (behavioral tracking). While some internet browsers offer a “do not track” or “DNT” option that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked, these features are not yet uniform and there is no common standard adopted by industry groups, technology companies, or regulators. Therefore, CSI does not currently commit to responding to browsers’ DNT signals with respect the Site.

It helps CSI to improve the Site and to deliver a better and more personalized service, including by enabling CSI to:
Estimate the Site audience size and usage patterns.
Store information about your preferences, allowing CSI to customize the Site according to your individual interests.
Speed up your searches.
Recognize you when you return to the Site.
The technologies CSI uses for this automatic data collection may include:

CSI does not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used.
