In order to become a User of the non-public content at CommunicatorBase, you must first register and submit a variety of contact information, including userid, last and first name, email address and country ("Application Information"). If necessary, CommunicatorBase reserves the right to disclose the Application Information of Users to other Users of CommunicatorBase who are employed by the same business entity or are engaged in a collaborative effort with the User's business entity. CommunicatorBase uses the Application Information to communicate information regarding: (a) new and modified services and features offered by CommunicatorBase; (b) special offers made available by CommunicatorBase; (c) specific activities in which the Users are participating and (d) activities of related or interested Users with the same business entity. The Application Information is also used for customer support and billing purposes.
When a User or Visitor accesses CommunicatorBase, CommunicatorBase collects, records and retains general non-personally identifiable data about such usage of CommunicatorBase including but not limited to the User's or Visitor's domain name, the IP address, the name of the Web page from which each entered CommunicatorBase, the locations each visits within CommunicatorBase, and the amount of time spent on each page of CommunicatorBase (collectively, "Data"). CommunicatorBase uses this Data to determine the demographics of Users or Visitors, to analyze trends and to develop and distribute to third parties aggregate statistics and general information about CommunicatorBase. CommunicatorBase will not disclose information that identifies specific Users or transactions, except as noted above in "User Information."
As a Visitor or User, you may choose to send CommunicatorBase a question via e-mail, register for a special service, request a call with an expert or otherwise communicate with CommunicatorBase, such as voluntarily participating in a survey. CommunicatorBase may also use such information to communicate with Users and to enhance CommunicatorBase, in an effort to better meet the needs of Users.
Member Information Disclosure
Upon request, CommunicatorBase may disclose to a Member the activities of its authorized Users on the Site, including providing Application Information, User Information and other information collected by CommunicatorBase to the Member business entity.
CommunicatorBase may extract information that does not identify specific Users or transactions (collectively, "Aggregate Data") from Application Information, User Information, Data, Cookies, and other information collected on the Site and use such Aggregate Data for internal and/or commercial purposes.
Third Party Relationships with CommunicatorBase.
CommunicatorBase has relationships with various third party providers to maintain and provide services to CommunicatorBase. These third parties are all bound by confidentiality agreements that protect the privacy of the CommunicatorBase Users, must utilize information solely for the purpose of providing services on behalf of CommunicatorBase and are bound to keep any personally identifiable information they receive secure. CommunicatorBase does not share, sell, rent or trade personally identifiable information with third parties for their promotional purposes.
If you choose to “forward a friend” information from our Site, we will ask you for your friend’s name and email address. We will then send your friend a one-time email that contains a link to our Site. CommunicatorBase and our third party service providers do not store the personally identifiable “forward a friend” information.
Our third party service providers may employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personally identifiable information.
We use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.
As is true of most Web sites, we use a third party tracking-utility partner to gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
Re-Targeted advertising uses information collected on an individual's web browsing behavior such as the pages they have visited or the searches they have made. This information is then used to display ads. The information collected is only linked to an anonymous cookie ID (alphanumeric number); it does not include any information that could be linked back to a particular person, such as their name, address or credit card number. The information used for targeted advertising either comes from CommunicatorBase or through third party website publishers. If you would like to opt out of re-targeted advertising from CommunicatorBase that occurs when visiting our third party advertising publishers, please click here. Please note this does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads.
Bulletin Boards/Chat Rooms
CommunicatorBase and its third party providers have implemented extensive security measures to help protect against the risk of loss, misuse and alteration of any information under CommunicatorBase's control including using encryption, limiting employee access, and using industry-standard controls such as firewalls and secure environments for personally identifiable information.
Additionally, in order to protect the security and integrity of the proprietary and confidential information of CommunicatorBase's Members and Members' Users that interact on the non-public portion of CommunicatorBase's secure collaboration network, CommunicatorBase has taken the following actions, among many others, to ensure that CommunicatorBase meets the strict security needs of CommunicatorBase's Members:

CommunicatorBase has adopted and enforces a Corporate Security Policy to protect all proprietary and confidential information of CommunicatorBase's Members.

All Member information is classified as "highly confidential" under the corporate security policy. CommunicatorBase has developed and adheres to strict security policies and guidelines with all of CommunicatorBase's third-party data hosting facilities providers.
CommunicatorBase has deployed industry standard Member authentication and User verification procedures to limit access to Member information to only those participants that our Members authorize.
Notwithstanding CommunicatorBase's extensive efforts, such security measures may not prevent all loss, misuse or alteration of information disclosed on the Site.
