We do not usually seek sensitive information (e.g., data relating to race or ethnic origin, religious beliefs, criminal record, physical or mental health, or sexual orientation) from visitors. We will, where necessary, obtain your explicit consent to collect and use such information.

Log information, cookies, and web beacons

This site collects standard internet log information including your IP address, browser type and language, access times, and referring website addresses.

At times, you may provide personal information via this site, for example, to gain access to specific content, attend a hosted event, respond to a survey, or request communications about specific areas of interest. In such cases, the information you submit will be used to manage your request and to customize and improve this Website and related events, programs and services offered to you. Survey information may also be used to analyze issues and topics related to CTO Boost, the market or the individual respondent.

We may also use your personal information for marketing purposes, or to send you promotional materials or communications regarding services provided by us or other members of the CTO Boost Network that we feel may be of interest to you. We may also contact you to seek feedback on our services or for market or other research purposes.  Your personal information may also be used to protect our rights or property and that of our users and, where appropriate, to comply with legal process.

We may provide your personal information to other entities within the CTO Boost Network in order to provide you with information that could be of interest to you and conduct market or other research. Personal information may also be disclosed to other entities within the CTO Boost Network and other third parties in order to respond to your requests or inquiries, as part of a corporate transaction such as a sale, divestiture, reorganization, merger or acquisition, or where those parties handle information on our behalf.

All of these disclosures may involve the transfer of personal information to countries or regions without data protection rules similar to those in effect in your area of residence.
