Collection of Information
1. The CPA website collects certain information about visitors, even when they are not logged in. CPA may record your IP address, the URLs of the websites and pages you visit (before, during and after your visit to the CPA website), the times and dates of such visits, information about the computer hardware and software you use and other information that may be available. Also, CPA may place “cookies” on your computer to recognize you on return visits, to enable CPA to enhance your browsing experience, as well as to collect additional information about you. You may adjust your browser settings or use other means to prevent cookies from being placed on your computer, but doing so may result in reduced functionality and a less personalized browsing experience.
2. CPA may ask you to provide certain additional information about yourself, including your name, contact information, the organization you come from and certain other information that CPA may use to identify you. If you choose not to provide such information, you may not be permitted to access certain CPA website features, content or services.
Use of Information
1. CPA uses the information that it collects about you to improve your browsing experience by personalizing the website to your interest, and also to help CPA select content and services that you may find interesting and useful. Information about the content you visit and services you use may be used alone or in conjunction with information collected from other users to help CPA tailor the site and its other products and services to better suit the needs and interests of you and other users.
2. Information that you provide may also be used as part of CPA’s effort to keep you informed about events, and selected products and services that may be of interest to you. In some cases, CPA may contact you with information from carefully selected third parties, but CPA will not provide information to third parties for such purposes. In other cases, your information might be shared with a third party pursuant to a process that contemplates such sharing but which you knowingly initiate.
3. CPA reserves the right to disclose any information that it obtains through the CPA website to appropriate governmental or regulatory authorities, if required by law or any governmental agency.
