We are CIS Group of Companies (CIS). Welcome to our website.
WHY DO WE COLLECT INFORMATION?
We collect your information because it enables us to give you and our other customers convenient access to our products and services. It also enables us to verify your identity in our interactions with you, provide you with a consistent and personalized experience, and deliver a superior level of customer service. For example, to access certain CIS products and services and other non-public areas of our website, you will be asked to sign in with a login name and password. If you choose not to provide us with the requested information, you will not be able to access such non-public areas because we cannot verify your identity. In addition, your personal information helps us keep you posted on our products and services, status updates, billing reminders, special offers, and events that may interest you.
WHAT IS “PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION”?
For purposes of this policy statement, “personally identifiable information” includes private information collected by CIS that may be used to uniquely identify an individual. Personally identifiable information does not include any public information about an individual that is available through federal, state, or local public records. It also does not include any information that, by itself, does not uniquely identify an individual, such as raw data aggregated across many individuals.
COLLECTING AND USING INFORMATION
Sometimes we hire other companies to provide products and services to you on our behalf, such as processing transactions, hosting websites, conducting customer surveys, and providing customer service. We may share some of your personal information with these companies to enable them to perform such work. These companies are prohibited from using your personal information for any other purpose, are required to maintain its confidentiality, and are obligated to protect your personal information in accordance with our policies.
In addition to collecting personally identifiable information, CIS collects other non-personally identifiable information about you and other related information through its website and other sources, including through its field operations and from its parent and affiliated companies and third parties. You agree that CIS may aggregate such data and information with data and information from other individuals. CIS may also use specific descriptive property information, diagrams, and exterior visual imagery to further enhance readily available public record information sources. CIS shall retain complete and sole ownership and control over all such information and may use this information in any manner it deems appropriate, including for external resale to its customers and other third parties.
Further, you agree that we may use your email or regular mail address to communicate with you regarding any services requested by you and in order to notify you of relevant product news, daily status updates and other information we believe may be of interest to you. If you do not wish to receive further promotional information about our products and services from us, you may “opt out” of such further electronic distributions upon receipt. If you have any questions regarding the foregoing or our privacy practices, please contact our Privacy Officer directly (as provided below) or send a detailed email to email@example.com.
As is true of most websites, we gather technical information about your interaction with our website automatically and store it in our logs. Such information includes Internet Protocol addresses, web browser type, Internet Service Provider, referring or exit pages, operating system, date and time stamp, and click-stream data.
TECHNICAL INFORMATION AND COOKIES

HOW CAN YOU ACCESS THE PERSONAL INFORMATION WE HAVE COLLECTED ABOUT YOU?
We take a number of technical and procedural precautions to protect your personally identifiable information from misuse and unauthorized access or disclosure. FTP access is facilitated through traditional network security methods. For security reasons, only some of our safeguards are described below and only in general terms.
To safeguard your personal information, we:
- monitor user accounts and automatically suspend accounts that have been inactive for 60 days, and delete accounts that have been inactive for 90 days,
- use secure sockets layer (SSL) encryption to collect and transmit personally identifiable information you communicate with us electronically,
- require passwords for corporate website access and email access to non-public areas of the website and mask such passwords through visual encryption, and
- limit administrative access to active user logins and passwords and new user account setups.
You can also help us protect your personal information by:
- using only secure web browsers,
- employing common anti-virus and anti-malware tools on your system to keep it safe,
- carefully logging out after using our website,
- using strong passwords with a combination of letters and numbers,
- changing your password often, and
- notifying us by email at email@example.com if you feel your login and/or password have been compromised.
Finally, please exercise discretion and caution with respect to your personal information. We may provide public areas on our website where you can post information about yourself and others. We do not control who reads postings on our website, or how they may use or disclose such information. If you choose to voluntarily disclose personal information on public portions of our website, that information will be publicly available and can be collected and used by others. For example, if you post your email address, you may receive unsolicited messages.
