INFORMATION CMN COLLECTS
CMN collects information from you in several different ways on the Websites, including:
1. Information you provide to CMN or give CMN permission to obtain.
CMN collects information you provide directly to CMN, such as your name, email address, telephone number, address and any other information you may provide CMN. For example, when you provide CMN your name and email address to sign up to receive our emails, participate in a sweepstakes, register for an event, or otherwise, CMN collects that information which you voluntarily provided to CMN.
You may also permit CMN to access your information on third party social media sites by linking your social media account to the Websites, thus allowing CMN to obtain information from your social media account. The nature of that information generally depends on your social media account settings or the privacy policies of those third party social media sites.
2. Information CMN collects automatically.
