What Information We Collect/How We Use It
We store and use the information you give us in accordance with the terms of this Policy. Our registration form requests that you provide certain contact and profile information (like, for example, your name, e-mail address, postal address, and phone number). Some of the requested information is required in order to receive College News and Research, INC. Services; other information is optional. The required information is indicated as such on the registration pages of the College News and Research, INC. Web Site. Depending on the specific COLLEGE NEWS AND RESEARCH, INC. Services for which a user registers, certain category specific information will be requested. We use this additional data to personalize your College News and Research, INC. experience.

Other than the information we require in order to provide one or more College News and Research, INC. Services to you, you do not have to provide any further information. But your election to withhold certain information will limit the value of the COLLEGE NEWS AND RESEARCH, INC. experience for you.
In addition, we might receive information about you from outside sources and add it to your COLLEGE NEWS AND RESEARCH, INC. membership information.

We also collect information such as the identification of the server your computer is logged onto and whether you opened an College News and Research, INC. e-mail delivered to you. We may also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending identical messages to our members.

1. To provide you with personalized information via electronic delivery and/or direct mail;
2. To send you targeted advertising via electronic delivery and/or direct mail;
3. To contact you for feedback and surveys via electronic delivery and/or direct mail;
4. To send you general and administrative information about your College News and Research, INC. membership via electronic delivery and/or direct mail; and
5. To provide your contact information to College News and Research, INC. marketing partners to allow them to send you special offers via electronic delivery and direct mail. This most often occurs when you request that we do so such as when completing an online survey.

We Do Not Intend to Collect Data from Minors. You must be 18 years old or older (except in Alabama where you must be 19 years old or older) to access our websites. CNR also requires confirmation in an affirmative statement that you are of the proper age. No information collected from children is knowingly used for any marketing or promotional purposes whatsoever, either inside or outside CNR.

Special Policy Related to the Handling of Social Security Numbers. With respect to your Social Security Number, CNR. has instituted various practices to prevent the disclosure of your Social Security Number. First, CNR only carries out the collection of SSNs when it is reasonably necessary for the proper administration of lawful business. CNR will secure your information by eliminating the public display of SSNs and by protecting SSNs with security safeguards. In order to eradicate the public display of your SSN, CNR will not put SSNs on documents that are widely seen by others, send documents with SSNs on them through the mail, nor send SSNs by email unless the connection is secure or the SSNs is encrypted. CNR will limit access to records containing your SSN only to those who need to see the numbers for the performance of their duties. CNR will not store records containing SSNs on computers or other electronic devices that are not secured against unauthorized access, and will protect records containing SSNs during storage by encrypting the numbers in electronic records or storing records in other media (including back-ups) in locked cabinets and/or locked rooms within our facility which require key access, security card access and code access. The security safeguards are carried out through written policies we have developed for protecting the confidentiality of SSNs, including, but not limited to, adopting a “clean desk/work area” policy requiring our employees to properly secure records containing SSNs, prohibiting employees from leaving voice mail messages containing SSNs, and discarding or destroying records in any medium using a method that protects their confidentiality (i.e. shredding). Lastly, CNR will provide training for our employees on their responsibility in handling SSNs. CNR will fulfill these duties in order to ensure the safety of this personal information.
