The Way CMS Uses Information
We use the information you provide about yourself only to complete your membership, registration, and order or provide any information you may have requested. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that action.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

We use non-identifying information to better design our website.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
Our Commitment To Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
Our Commitment To Children’s Privacy:
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13.
How You Can Access Or Correct Your Information
Current members can access their personal identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by examining the online Membership Directory. You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by either using the online membership directory update page or by sending us a request.
Personal identifiable information about customers who are not members that we collect online and maintain is not accessible online. These individuals can correct factual errors in their personally identifiable information by sending us a request.
To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
