Collection of Information
CPHSE, or third parties acting on CPHSE’s behalf, routinely logs Non-Personally Identifiable Information that is automatically generated when all users visit or use the CPHSE Sites, as a by-product of the user’s activities (“Web Log Data“). This information includes, but is not limited to, Internet protocol (“IP“) header information that is automatically passed between a user’s computer and the CPHSE Sites, such as the computer’s IP address, the browser being used at the time, and the URL of the webpage on the CPHSE Sites that the browser requested. This information may also include details relating to the activities users perform within the CPHSE Sites, such as what links they click on, in what order they access specific web pages within the CPHSE Sites, and the search queries they perform on the CPHSE Sites.
Some of the CPHSE Web Services allow you to store certain details and preferences that help you personalize that CPHSE Service (“Preference Data“). This Non-Personally Identifiable Information may include ZIP code, age, gender, preferred type of news or other. CPHSE stores Preference Data in a cookie that it places on your computer. We do this so that you do not have to enter this data every time you return to the CPHSE Sites. We may also use the Preference Data to deliver other personalized services and features of the CPHSE Web Services.
CPHSE asks you to provide certain information when you initially register to use the CPHSE Web Services and then afterwards may ask you to provide additional information when you use certain CPHSE Web Services for the first time. In addition, CPHSE also collects information about your use of the CPHSE Web Services as a registered user. This table summarizes the different types of information that we may collect from you when you register for the CPHSE Web Services and use the CPHSE Web Services as a registered user.

CPHSE may use Web Log Data, Preferences Data, and Your Data in these forms for internal business purposes, such as determining how much traffic certain portions of the CPHSE Web Services receive, for license reporting and assessment of service levels, to better understand how the CPHSE Web Services are used, to gauge traffic patterns and determine what types of content and services are most popular with users of the CPHSE Web Services, or determining which search queries on certain CPHSE Service are the most popular.
CPHSE may also use Web Log Data, Preferences Data, and Your Data to customize the CPHSE Sites and Services and make them more relevant to you. For example, CPHSE may use such data to determine which news articles, services and information services to recommend to you.
Sharing of Information
CPHSE uses third parties to assist us in delivering parts of the CPHSE Web Services to you. We may share portions of Your Data with these third parties to the extent necessary for them to provide these services. These companies are acting on CPHSE’s behalf and are required, by contract with CPHSE, to keep this information confidential and are only authorized to use it for specific purposes. As described in more detail below, CPHSE may also provide Non-Personally Identifiable Information elements of Your Data to third parties who deliver ads to you on CPHSE’s behalf. CPHSE will not provide your Personally Identifiable Information to these advertisers unless you expressly authorize us to do so.
CPHSE may also share Web Log Data and Preference Data, which do not contain Personally Identifiable Information, with third parties. For example, CPHSE may share traffic data for one of the CPHSE Sites with a third party that analyzes and publishes Website traffic surveys.
Skybox and CPHSE mail services in specific; CPHSE will not disclose any information from any of your emails or other messaging services any third party unless specifically provided and accepted by you. CPHSE may deliver statistics that in any circumstance cannot reveal any clients identity. All statistics are delivered anonymously.
You may authorize other Internet sites such as MySpace, LinkedIn or Facebook to access and publish on their Websites some of Your Data, including your Activity Data.
If you provide CPHSE with your credentials for this kind of Internet service and use the features of the CPHSE Service that share information across these Internet services, or, if one of these Internet service contacts CPHSE using your CPHSE Web Services credentials and asks to have access to certain portions of Your Data, CPHSE will treat this as your authorization to share such portions of Your Data with that Internet service.
CPHSE, or advertising network providers acting at CPHSE’s request, may deliver advertisements to you through the CPHSE Web Services, depending on whether you are a registered user or not, as described in more detail below.
We, or our advertising providers, automatically deliver ads to all users of the CPHSE Sites, whether they are registered or not, based on anonymous information including: (i) the IP address associated with your computer for purposes of determining your approximate geographic location; (ii) the type of web page that is being displayed, such as a news or sports page, for example; or (iii) the content on the page that is shown, such as a sports article about a certain team or a movie review for a particular movie. Because this advertising activity automatically applies to all users and it is purely contextual, this type of advertising delivery cannot be customized or controlled by individual users.
If you are a registered user, CPHSE may use Your Data, regardless of where we gathered such information, to determine what type of ad to display to you on the CPHSE Sites. In addition, CPHSE may send certain demographic information, like ZIP code, age, and gender to its advertising network providers, so that the advertising you see is more relevant to you. These advertising network providers will only use such information to display an ad to you on the CPHSE Sites.
Advertising Networks and Other Service Provider Networks
Communicating with You
CPHSE may use your Registration Data to send you a confirmation e-mail verifying the ownership of the e-mail addresses provided in your Registration Data and to send you service-related communications about the CPHSE Web Services. In addition, CPHSE may send you promotional or commercial e-mail relating to CPHSE for which you have activated your account as permitted by applicable law. You can opt-out from receiving such promotional or commercial e-mail by following the instructions contained in the e-mails or by editing your account.
Non-members may elect to permanently opt-out from receiving invite requests from members to join CPHSE. When you register for permanent opt-out, you provide us with a validated e-mail address at which you no longer wish to receive CPHSE invite requests. CPHSE may send you an opt-out confirmation e-mail to the address you enter. If you are sent an opt-out confirmation e-mail, you must respond to that e-mail to complete the opt-out process.

CPHSE may allow you to access portions of the CPHSE Web Services by signing in using your username or other identifier from another Internet service (“Non-CPHSE Username“). CPHSE will treat your Non-CPHSE Username and any additional data that the relevant Internet service provides to CPHSE about you as Your Data.
Participating in Blogs and Forums

We are not responsible for PII you choose to submit through these features.

CPHSE uses industry standard approaches to securely store, control access to, and make appropriate use of Your Data, and we require our contractors and other providers to do so as well. However, no security measure is completely effective and CPHSE cannot guarantee the complete security of Your Data. If you don’t want CPHSE to know any particular information about you, you should not register to use the CPHSE Web Services or include it in anything that you submit or post to CPHSE, including posts on the CPHSE Sites or e-mails to CPHSE.
CPHSE also takes additional steps to increase the security and reliability of customer communications. We do not read your outgoing or incoming e-mail, file attachments, video mail, private chat, or instant messages. However, we (along with our third party providers) use software and hardware tools to help prevent and block “spam” e-mails, viruses, spyware, and other harmful or unwanted communications and programs from being sent and received over CPHSE.com e-mail and the CPHSE Sites. These tools may automatically scan your e-mails, video mails, instant messages, file attachments, and other files and communications in order to help us protect you and the Service against these harmful or unwanted communications and programs.
As an additional security precaution, neither CPHSE nor any of our authorized service providers will ask you for your CPHSE password in an e-mail, over the telephone, or in an online support forum or chat area. Do not give your CPHSE password to anyone in an e-mail, over the telephone, or in an online support area.
