Use of Cookies

The Site may use “cookies” to collect information to help personalize your online experience. We also use this information to help diagnose technical and service problems, administer our Site, identify users of our Site, operate our business and gather demographic information about our users. We use clickstream data to determine how much time users spend on web pages of our Site, how users navigate through our Site, and how we may tailor our Site to better meet the needs of our users. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. 

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Civic pages, or register with Civic site or services, a cookie helps Civic to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the Site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Civic features that you customized. 

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Civic services or websites you visit. Our Site currently does not respond to “Do Not Track” (DNT) signals and we operate as described in this Privacy Policy whether or not a DNT signal is received, as there is no consistent industry standard for compliance. See our Cookie Policy for further information.

This section applies only to California residents. Pursuant to the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, as amended (“CCPA”), below is a summary for the last twelve (12) months of the “Personal Information” categories, as identified and defined by the CCPA (see California Civil Code section 1798.140(o)), that we collect, the reason we collect the Personal Information, where we obtain the Personal Information, and the other entities with whom we may share the Personal Information. Under the CCPA, Personal Information is defined as any information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household (“Personal Information”). We generally collect the following categories of Personal Information for the business or commercial purposes described below:

 

  • Identifiers such as a name, address, unique personal identifier, email, phone number, your device’s IP address, software, and identification numbers associated with your devices; and
  • Internet or other electronic information regarding length of visit and number of page views, click-stream data, locale preferences, your mobile carrier, date and time stamps associated with transactions, and system configuration information.
 

We collect Personal Information: to fulfill or meet the reason you provided the
information, such as responding to your inquiry, processing your request, verifying your information and monitoring and improving our responses; to deliver content and product and service offerings relevant to your interests (including via email); to help maintain the safety, security, and integrity of our website, products and services, and properties; to manage and operate our web properties, fulfill our legal obligations, and develop our website, products, and services; to respond to law enforcement requests and as required by applicable law, court order, or governmental regulations; and as described to you when collecting your personal information.

We collect Personal Information for the business purposes described above and in other sections of this Privacy Policy, and in our Cookie Policy.

The categories of other individuals or entities with whom we may share your Personal Information are listed above.

If you are a California resident, you have rights in relation to your Personal Information; however, your rights are subject to certain exceptions. For instance, we cannot disclose specific pieces of Personal Information if the disclosure would create a substantial,
articulable, and unreasonable risk to the security of the Personal Information, your account with us, or the security of our network systems.

To assert your right to know, to access, or to delete your Personal Information, please contact us as indicated in the How to Contact Us section of this Privacy Policy. To confirm your identity, we may ask you to verify Personal Information we already have on file for you. If we cannot verify your identity based on the information we have on file, we may request additional information from you, which we will only use to verify your
identity, and for security or fraud-prevention purposes.
