CME Outfitters, LLC (“CMEO”) and its parent company, KnowFully Learning Group (“KnowFully,” and together with CMEO “we,” “us,” or “our”) welcomes you.  Our Services are subject to the following privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”), which may be updated by us from time to time without notice to you.  By accepting this Privacy Policy, accessing or using the Services, or otherwise manifesting your assent to this Privacy Policy, you agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy and the accompanying Terms and Conditions, which together make up the Agreement. If you do not agree to (or cannot comply with) all of the terms of this Privacy Policy or any other terms of the Agreement, you may not access or use the Services.

If you accept or agree to this Agreement on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to the Agreement and, in such event, “you” and “your” will refer and apply to that company or other legal entity, and any employees, contractors, or agents authorized by you to access and use the Services pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.  

Capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Policy shall have the meaning set forth in the Terms of Use.

THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT

In the course of operating the Services, CMEO collects or receives the following types of information, which may include personal information.

Contact Information

We collect contact information on our Services; contact information typically includes your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, date of birth, license number, and any information you provide in messages to us (collectively, “Contact Information”). We use such contact information for purposes such as registering you for an account on the Platform, providing you with information about the Services, responding to your inquiries, sending you email and text alerts (including marketing emails and texts), or providing you the Services.

CE Information

When Users register for an account on the Platform, in addition to providing Contact Information and a username and password, you will also be asked to provide your birthday, name of your employer, and your professional credentials and license number. Such information is used to create your account and administer and keep track of your CE credits.

Server Logs

Like most websites today, our web servers keep log files that record data each time a device accesses those servers. The log files contain data about the nature of such access, including the device’s IP address, user agent string (e.g., operating system and browser type/version), and referral URL (i.e., the external source by which you arrived at our Services or the pages you’ve clicked on while on our Services). We may use these log files for purposes such as assisting in monitoring and troubleshooting errors and incidents, analyzing web traffic, or optimizing the user experience.

Cookies

We collect information using “cookie” technology and other similar technologies. Cookies are small packets of data that a website stores on your computer’s or mobile device’s hard drive (or other storage medium) so that your computer will “remember” information about your visit. We use both first- and third-party session cookies and persistent cookies. Below is a general primer on session and persistent cookies; information collected by cookies depends on its particular purpose. For more information, please see the information regarding analytics providers discussed further below. 

  • Session Cookies: We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our Services. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. 
  • Persistent Cookies: A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time or until you delete them. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your web browser’s “help” file. To the extent we provide a log-in portal or related feature on our Services, persistent cookies can be used to store your passwords so that you don’t have to enter it more than once. Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our visitors to personalize the experience on our Services.

In some cases, we may associate information that you have provided to us (e.g., email address) with the cookies that we use. In addition to facilitating the purposes described above, this is useful in understanding your engagement with other content related to our Services (e.g., email open rates, URL click-throughs).

If you do not want us to place a cookie on your hard drive, you may be able to turn that feature off on your computer or mobile device. Please consult your browser’s documentation for information on how to do this and how to delete persistent cookies. However, if you decide not to accept cookies or similar technologies from us, certain aspects of the Services may not function properly or as intended.

Third-Party Analytics Providers

We use one or more third–party analytics services to evaluate your use of the Services, as the case may be, by compiling reports on activity (based on their collection of IP addresses, Internet service provider, browser type, operating system and language, referring and exit pages and URLs, data and time, amount of time spent on particular pages, what sections of the Services you visit, number of links clicked, search terms and other similar usage data) and analyzing performance metrics. These third parties use cookies and other technologies to help collect, analyze, and provide us reports or other data. 

By accessing and using the Services, you consent to the processing of data about you by these analytics providers in the manner and for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy.

For example, when a browser visits a site, pixel tags enable us and these third-parties to recognize certain cookies stored within the browser to learn which ads or other content bring a user to a given site. Information that we may receive from these third parties, including through their service providers, may include advertising identifiers, IP addresses, reports, and campaign data.
