Contact Information/Financial Information

Our website’s registration and order forms require users to provide us with contact information to establish membership accounts and purchase services and products. CL collects each user’s name, user ID, address, city, state, postal code, telephone number, IP address and e-mail address. CL uses this information to contact the user regarding purchases, orders and administrative matters (such as reminders regarding the start time/date for an instructional program you chose to attend). New users must opt in to receive commercial communications and may opt out of receiving future commercial communications at any time (see “Anti-Spam Policy/Opt-out Choice” below). CL gathers only user information that is needed to administer its business and enhance and improve its services and products.

CL also collects and stores information and content you provide to us for your user profile, which is publicly visible to other users of the website. Your username and profile image will be displayed next to your discussion forum posts, comments to our blog, course reviews, and other content that you post or upload to public areas of our website. Examples of information you can provide for your profile are name, brief biography, hobbies and interests, and one or more links to your personal website(s).

If you elect one of these options, you give us permission to access your Facebook, Twitter, or Gravatar account, as the case may be, solely for purposes of displaying your Facebook profile picture, your Twitter avatar image, or your Gravatar profile image as part of your profile on the website.
