- Personal Information Submitted by You
When you submit information to CNL or its affiliates, when you register on our Web site, and/or when you choose to request forms or information through our Web site, you may be asked to give personal information. For example, you may be asked to provide the following information:
- Postal or legal address

In addition to providing the foregoing information collected through your submission of information to CNL or its affiliates or your use of our Web site, if you choose to correspond further with us through e-mail, we may retain the content of your e-mail messages together with your e-mail address and our responses.
- Web Site Use Information and "Cookies"
Similar to other commercial Web sites, our Web site utilizes a standard technology called "cookies" and Web server logs to collect information about how our Web site is used. Cookies are a feature of Web browser software that allows Web servers to recognize the computer used to access a Web site. They are small pieces of data that are stored by a user's Web browser on the user's hard drive. Cookies can remember what information a user accesses on one Web page to simplify subsequent interactions with that Web site by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user's transactions on related Web pages. This makes it easier for a user to move from Web page to Web page and to complete commercial transactions over the Internet. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalized. We use session ID cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site during a particular visit. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. Information gathered through cookies and Web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our Web site, and the Web sites visited just before and just after our Web site. This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual. If your browser is set to reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use or navigate some areas of our site will be impaired.
HOW DO WE USE THE INFORMATION THAT YOU PROVIDE TO US?
Broadly speaking, we use your personal information for purposes of administering our business activities, providing customer service and making other products and services available to you. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our Web site, new services and special offers we think you will find valuable. You will be given the opportunity to notify us on the Web site of your desire not to receive these offers. We use Web site browser software tools such as cookies and Web server logs to gather information about our Web site users' browsing activities in order to constantly improve our Web site and better serve our customers. This information assists us to design and arrange our Web pages in the most user-friendly manner and to continually improve our Web site to better meet the needs of our customers and prospective customers.

In connection with strategic marketing alliances or partnerships, we will retain all ownership rights to the information, and we will not share information regarding your social security number or other non-public personal financial data.
In the event that CNL or any of its affiliates and/or some of our assets are sold or transferred or used as security, the information collected on our Web sites may be transferred to third parties as part of that transaction. CNL may also provide such information or provide access to such information to our affiliates or to our business partners, vendors and/or service providers; however we will do so subject to appropriate confidentially agreements that obligate such partners, vendors and/or service partners to maintain and protect the confidentiality of such information.

You will be given the opportunity to notify us of your desire not to receive these offers by clicking on a response box when you receive such an offer or by sending us an e-mail request at firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOW DO WE SECURE INFORMATION TRANSMISSIONS?
When you enter confidential personal information on our Web site, secure server software which we have licensed encrypts all information you input before it is submitted to us. The information is scrambled en route and decoded once it reaches our Web site.
E-mail that you may send to us may not be secure unless we advise you that security measures will be in place prior to your transmitting the information. For that reason, we ask that you do not send confidential information such as Social Security or account numbers to us through an unsecured e-mail.
HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION?
We know that security is a concern for our customers and we have developed and implemented administrative, technical and physical security practices and procedures designed to protect the confidentiality of your personal information and the security of our Web site. We will take measures which we believe are reasonable and appropriate to protect your information from unauthorized access or disclosure and accidental loss, alteration or destruction.
HOW CAN YOU ACCESS AND CORRECT YOUR INFORMATION?
