This Privacy Notice describes how CIO Partners, Inc. and/or its affiliates (collectively, “CIO Partners” or “we”) collects and uses information, including the personal information, you provide on our website www.ciopartners.com (this “Website”)
Through this Website, CIO Partners will not collect any personal data about you (e.g., your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address), unless you voluntarily choose to provide us with it (e.g., by completing and submitting the Contact Us form), provide your consent, or unless otherwise permitted by applicable laws and regulations.
Purpose of Use; Sharing
We do not sell your personal information to third parties, but we may retrieve, save, share and make any use of the information, including without limitation use for analysis or statistics, which is compatible with providing our services. We may provide information and/or personal user content to service providers to help us provide the services we offer. Specifically, we may use third parties to facilitate our business, such as to host the service at a co-location facility for servers, to provide our community blog, to send out email updates about us, and to remove repetitive information from our user lists. In connection with these business operations, our service providers may have access to your personal information and/or content. When you sign up for our services, we will share your personal information as necessary for the third party to provide that service. We may be required to disclose your personal information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information until we have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through our services or using our name, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies. In any case in which the ownership of our business shall change, including a change in ownership due to bankruptcy or a sale or transfer of assets, your user information may be transferred to the new owner so the services can continue operations.

Through your use of telecommunications services to access this Website, your communications data (e.g., Internet protocol address) or utilization data (e.g., information on the beginning, end and extent of each access, and information on the telecommunications services you accessed) are technically generated and could conceivably relate to personal data. To the extent that there is a compelling necessity, the collection, processing and use of your communications or utilization data will occur and will be performed in accordance with the applicable data privacy protection legal framework.

"Cookies" - Information Stored Automatically on Your Computer or Device
In addition, we may advertise using remarketing technology. In doing so, a third-party will place or read a unique ad-serving cookie on your computer or device and will use non-personal information about your browser and your activity at this site to serve ads on their content network.

We or our third party advertising partners may employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us improve our site, for example to better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on webpages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We may tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personal information if you choose to provide such information to us.
We may use local shared objects, also known as Flash cookies, to store your preferences or display content based upon what you view on our site to personalize your visit.

Flash cookies are different from browser cookies because of the amount of data, type of data, and how data is stored. Cookie management tools provided by your browser will not remove Flash cookies.
