C3i intends to keep secure any PII that you submit to us. However, the open nature of the Internet is such that data may flow over networks without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended. Therefore, in submitting PII to any web site connected to the internet, you assume some risk of an unauthorized third party obtaining that information. To guard against this threat we advise that any individual using the internet as a communications medium take steps to educate themselves on the risks and take necessary steps to address them as best as possible. These steps include, but are not limited to, using encryption software and installing anti-spyware on your system
In order to maintain the security of our systems, protect our staff, record transactions, and, in certain circumstances, to prevent and detect crime or unauthorized activities, C3i reserves the right to monitor all internet communications including web and email traffic into and out of its domains.
C3i may update this policy from time to time. Please check this Site periodically for updates. Policy updates shall be effective the date the change is posted on this Site.

This Site is not intentionally designed for or directed at children under the age of thirteen (13) years. C3i will not knowingly collect PII from or about children and has no need for such information in the conduct of its business.
