WWW.CIAS.ORG GATHERS AND TRACKS
www.cias.org gathers two types of information about users:
1. We collect information that users provide through optional, voluntary
submissions. This information may include your name, e-mail address
and other personally identifying information. We request this information
if you opt-in to receive our electronic newsletters, to participate
in our message boards or forums, to email a friend, from participation
in polls and surveys and to receive special offers and notices from
us or our advertisers and sponsors:
Users who opt-in to receive the
following free services are required to submit certain personally identifying
a. Electronic newsletters (Dispatches
- VIP Newsletter)
www.cias.org gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe
to our free electronic newsletter. Users may remove themselves from
this mailing list by following the link provided in every newsletter
that points users to the subscription management page.
b. Message boards/forums
Users of the site's Message Boards and Forums must register separately
for these services (both are free of charge) in order to post messages.
To register for these services the user is required to supply a username,
password, and email address.
c. "E-mail this to a friend"
Our site's users can choose to electronically forward a link, page,
or documents to someone else by clicking "e-mail this to a friend."
The user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient.
This information is used in the case of transmission errors and, of
course, to let the recipient know who sent the email.
We may offer interactive polls to users so they can easily share their
opinions with other users and see what our audience thinks about important
issues. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are
not identifiable to any particular user. www.cias.org may use a system
to "tag" users after they have voted, so they can vote only
once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with personally
identifying information about individual users.
www.cias.org may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target
our content to our audience. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic
information in these surveys with our sponsors, advertisers and partners.
2. Information www.cias.org gathers
through automatically tracking general statistical information about
our Web site and its visitors, such as IP addresses, browsers, pages
viewed, number of visitors, etc. www.cias.org tracks user traffic
patterns throughout all of our sites. www.cias.org breaks down overall
usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and
MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information
contained in every user's browser).
This information allows us to better
tailor our content to user's needs and build a better service for you.
It also helps our advertisers and sponsors better understand the demographics
of our audience. Because www.cias.org derives its revenue mainly from
sponsorships and advertising, providing such aggregated demographic
data is essential to keeping our service free to users.

We will never knowingly request personally identifying information from
anyone under the age of 16 without requesting parental or guardian consent.
However, we have no way of distinguishing the age of individuals who

files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain personally
identifying information although it will enable us to relate your use
of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly
provided. But the only personally identifying information a cookie can
contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can't read data
off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. www.cias.org

As stated above, we use personally
identifying information that users voluntarily provide in order to send
out electronic newsletters and to enable users to participate in polls,

mailing lists with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors

determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on
