Privacy Policy

    Anonymous information refers to data that cannot be tied back to a specific individual. Cumberland Valley SHRM collects some information each time a visitor comes to a Cumberland Valley SHRM website, so we can improve the overall quality of the visitor's online experience. For example, Cumberland Valley SHRM collects the visitor's IP address, browser, and platform type (e.g., a Netscape browser on a Windows platform). Gathering this data helps us to learn what browsers we need to support. Other anonymous information helps us determine what sections of Cumberland Valley SHRM Online are most popular and how many visitors come to our site(s). You do not have to register with Cumberland Valley SHRM Online before we can collect this anonymous information.

    We disclose to third-party sponsors/advertisers aggregate statistics (i.e., impressions and click-throughs on a company's advertisement). Also, we may share aggregate website statistics with the media or other third parties. No personally identifiable information is disclosed to these sponsors/advertisers or other third parties as part of this process-only information in an aggregate form.

    Be aware that Cumberland Valley SHRM's sponsors, advertisers, and third-party content providers have links on our site(s) that take you to other websites. For example, when you click on an ad displayed on Cumberland Valley SHRM Online, you are linked to another site. Please note also that links to other websites are provided throughout Cumberland Valley SHRM Online for users' information and convenience. Cumberland Valley SHRM hopes that all third parties involved adhere to our policies regarding the privacy of our users. However, Cumberland Valley SHRM's Online Privacy Policy does not cover third-party data collection practices, and Cumberland Valley SHRM Online does not assume any responsibility for any actions of third parties.
