Privacy Policy

General

CORUS respects your privacy and believes the best way to serve you on the Internet is with honesty, accountability and adherence to legal standards. We are sensitive to the issue of privacy and have structured our online activities to maximize your control over the disclosure of your own personally identifiable information. This Site is for information purposes only and the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy relate specifically to this Site and do not apply to websites operated by subsidiary and holding companies of CORUS, or other third parties, which have their own terms of use and privacy policies. Please read the respective sites’ terms and policies when accessing those sites. This Privacy Policy Statement supplements our general Terms of Use, which you must also read. By using our website (the "Site"), you agree to be bound by the terms of this Privacy Policy and by the Terms of Use. We may change this Privacy Policy at any time by posting revisions to the Site, and your continued use of the Site indicates your agreement to the revised terms. Accordingly, you should check the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy from time to time to keep informed of such amendments, and, if you do not agree to the terms of this or any revised policy, please exit the Site immediately.

 

What Information is collected?

CORUS may collect two types of information: personally identifiable information and aggregated non-personally identifiable information.

Personally identifiable information will include information such as your name, username, address, postal code, telephone number, e-mail address, age, marital status, income level, education level, intentions, preferences and opinions. CORUS does not collect personally identifiable information about an individual, except when individuals provide such specific information on a voluntary basis.

Aggregated information will include information that is anonymous such as the type of browser you are using or other such non-personally identifiable information.

 

Why is the Information Collected?

CORUS may collect your personal information in order to enable CORUS to make general improvements to the Site, ensure that content standards of the Site are rigorously upheld, enable us to contact you and better serve your specific interests.

CORUS may transparently collect non-personally identifiable aggregate information through the use of cookies or by other means. We use this information to assess general usage patterns, including identifying repeat users, collect demographic information, administer and make improvements to the Site to tailor our visitors' experiences at the Site and display content according to their preferences so as to make it more useful to you and other users. CORUS, our subsidiary and holding companies and such other third party as we may designate reserve the right to use, maintain, update, disclose and/or sell Aggregate Information to third parties.
