We Protect Your Privacy
CDYNE believes that privacy is important to the success and use of the
Internet. This statement sets forth CDYNE's Privacy Statement for CDYNE.com and
describes the practices that CDYNE will follow with respect to the privacy of users
of this Site.
Like most industries today, the financial and business services industries are rapidly
being shaped by technology, literally changing the way we do business. To be successful
in this environment, we must continue to ensure that our customers are confident
we will manage their financial affairs expertly and confidentially.
What is personally identifiable information?
"Customer identifiable information" is information which can be associated
with a specific individual or entity, such as name, address, e-mail address, user
ID, credit card number, social security number, and so on.
How is this information collected, used, and disclosed?
Recognition of a Customer's Expectation of Privacy: At CDYNE, we believe
the confidentiality and protection of customer information is one of our fundamental
responsibilities. And while information is critical to providing quality service,
we recognize one of our most important assets is our customers' trust. Thus, the
safekeeping of customer information is a priority for CDYNE.
We do not collect personal information -- including your e-mail address -- unless
we first ask you for it. On some of our Sites, we may request that you voluntarily
supply us with information, including your e-mail address, street address, telephone
number or other information so we may enhance your site visit or follow up with
you after your visit. Whether you provide any information is entirely up to you.
If you have voluntarily provided information, you consented to the collection and
use of your personally identifiable information as described in this Privacy Statement.
We do not sell or rent personal information collected through this site to anyone.
However, CDYNE may provide aggregate statistics about visitors to our Sites, such
as volume, traffic patterns, and related site information to reputable third-party
vendors, but these statistics will include no personally identifiable information.
CDYNE may also disclose information in special cases when we have a good faith belief
that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with
legal process; (b) protect and defend our rights or property; (c) enforce the Web
site Terms and Conditions of Use; or (d) act to protect the interests of our users
Use, Collection and Retention of Customer Information: CDYNE limits the use, collection
and retention of customer information to what we believe is necessary or useful
to conduct our business, provide quality service, and offer products, services and
other opportunities that may be of interest to our customers. CDYNE will collect
and use customer identifiable information for billing purposes, to provide service
to you, to anticipate and resolve problems with your service, or to create and inform
you of products and services that better meet your needs.
CDYNE servers automatically gather information about which pages are visited within
the CDYNE Web Site. We do not use that information except in the aggregate.
Maintenance of Accurate Information: CDYNE recognizes that it must maintain accurate
customer records. Therefore, CDYNE has established procedures to maintain the accuracy
of customer information and to keep such information current and complete. These
procedures include responding to requests to correct inaccurate information in a
Protection of Information via Established Security Procedures: CDYNE recognizes
that a fundamental element of maintaining effective customer privacy procedures
is to provide reasonable protection against the unauthorized access to customer
information. Therefore, CDYNE has established appropriate security standards and
procedures to guard access to customer information. Disclosure of Privacy Principles
to Customers: CDYNE recognizes and respects the privacy expectations of our customers.
We want our customers to understand our commitment to privacy in our use of customer
information. As a result of our commitment, we have developed these Privacy Principles
which are made readily available to our customers. Customers who have questions
about these Privacy Principles or have a question about the privacy of their customer
information should call CDYNE.
What are cookies and how are they used?
Some CDYNE Sites, like many other commercial web sites, may utilize a standard
technology called "cookies" to collect information about how our site is used. Cookies
were designed to help a web site operator determine that a particular user had visited
the site previously and thus save and remember any preferences that may have been
set while the user was browsing the site. Cookies are small strings of text that
web sites can send to your browser. Cookies cannot retrieve any other data from
your hard drive or obtain your e-mail address. If you are simply browsing a CDYNE
informational site, a cookie may be used to identify your browser as one that has
visited the site before.
We may also make use of memory-based cookies in support of authenticating the user
of certain CDYNE web applications. Similarly, if you are a registered user of a
site providing service to CDYNE clients (and have a user ID and password), we may
you have indicated while using the site. Although you have the ability to modify
your browser to either accept all cookies, notify you when a cookie is sent, or
reject all cookies, it may not be possible to utilize CDYNE services which require
registration if you reject cookies.
What are your choices regarding collection, use, and distribution of your information?
If you have voluntarily provided information, you consented to the collection
and use of your personally identifiable information as described in this Privacy
Statement. If, in connection with your use of a particular service, we ask to use
your data in a way not described in this Privacy Statement and you do not wish to
permit that use, you can choose not to use the particular service.
If you have voluntarily provided personally identifiable information, we may, from
time to time, send you mail or e-mail regarding products and services. If you do
not want to receive such offers and mailings, you can easily indicate that by checking
the appropriate box on the submission form.
How do we protect your information?
We exercise great care to protect your personally identifiable information.
This includes, among other things, using industry standard techniques such as firewalls,
encryption, intrusion detection and site monitoring. Unfortunately, no data transmission
over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive
to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot ensure or warrant
the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from us. This is especially
true for information you transmit to us via e-mail. We have no way of protecting
that information until it reaches us. Once we receive your transmission, we make
our best effort to ensure its security on our servers.
Internally, we will restrict access to your personally identifiable information
to employees who need access to the information in order to do their jobs. These
employees are limited in number and are committed to our privacy policies.
We will review our security arrangements from time to time as we deem appropriate.
How can you help protect your information?
If you are using an CDYNE web site for which you registered and chose a
password, we recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. We will
never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited
e-mail. Also remember to sign out of the registered site and close your browser
window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access
your personal information and correspondence if others have access to your computer.
CDYNE Sites may contain links to other sites, including those of our business
partners. While we seek to link only to sites that share our high standards and
respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the privacy practices employed by
These Privacy Principles apply to individuals, and we reserve the right to change
these Privacy Principles, and any of the policies or procedures described above,
at any time without prior notice. These Privacy Principles are for general guidance
and do not constitute a contract or create legal rights and do not modify or amend
any agreements we have with our customers.
