CNSVS uses third party service providers to host our Website and the online version of our Software, and CNSVS makes reasonable efforts to ensure that our third party service providers have implemented physical, electronic, and procedural security measures to assist with safeguarding your personal information, and to help protect against unauthorized access and disclosure. Notwithstanding our efforts, the Internet has inherent security risks. CNSVS cannot promise, and you should not expect, that the information that you submit or upload to the Website, whether personal information or other information, will always be impenetrable from attacks by cyber criminals.

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 without parental consent. If CNSVS or its Internet service providers become aware that a minor or a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personal information without parental consent, that information will be deleted from our databases. Parents who have questions about personal information that may have been submitted by a child or on behalf of a child under the age of 13 should email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CNSVS will not share any personal information about you with outside third-parties for their direct marketing purposes to the extent prohibited by California law, unless you agree otherwise as authorized by your prior written consent.
California residents have the right to request information from CNSVS regarding the manner by which CNSVS shares personal information with affiliated companies and third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To find out what and how we share such information, you may send us an e-mail request at email@example.com or mail a request to: Director of Security and Infrastructure, CNS Vital Signs, 598 Airport Blvd, Suite 1400, Morrisville, NC, 27560.

The first time that you provide us with registration information through our Website, you may be offered the opportunity to subscribe to and receive additional information about our products and services. After your initial registration, you may review your information at any time and make changes, corrections, or deletions by contacting customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each commercial e-mail that we send to you will offer you the opportunity to opt-out of continuing to receive such messages. We may take up to ten (10) business days to process your opt-out requests. In some instances, we may have already shared your information with one of our authorized third parties before you changed your information preferences. In those cases, you may have to directly contact those third parties to opt-out of receiving their communications. FTC email compliance guidance allows us to send you transactional and relationship e-mail without offering you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving those types of e-mail.
CNSVS may share an individual's PII with agents, contractors or partners of CNSVS in connection with services that these individuals or entities perform for, or with, CNSVS. CNSVS may, for example, provide an individual's PII to agent contractors or partners for hosting our databases, for data processing services, or to send to that individual the PII that he or she requested.
