We understand the importance of maintaining your trust and confidence and we shall ensure that the personal information you submit to us through remains private and is used only as set out in this policy.


CCO Services and Training 

This page describes CCO’s general commitment to privacy and specifically to information you submit through this website. If you inquire about or register for any of CCO’s services or training seminars, any personal information that may be gathered during these processes will be used subject to the specific policy displayed within each service.


Information Gathered through this Website

In sections of this site, you have the chance to provide us with personal identifying information such as your name, email address, telephone number etc. This personal information will be used solely for the purposes explained to you when you provide it.

CCO may also use your information collectively, such as to measure what area users visit most frequently and what information users access the most. We use this data anonymously in connection with the design of the website. This information also helps us to determine what is most beneficial for our users and how we can continually create a better overall service for you. This aggregate information is never used so that inpidual users can be personally identified and it does not involve the transfer of any personal data we hold about you.


Marketing of other CCO Services/Training

If you give us permission, we may use your personal information to make you aware of additional CCO services/training that may be of interest to you. We may also ask you for other additional information, to be provided at your discretion, in an effort to deliver to you the best possible service experience. CCO provides you with the opportunity to opt-in to these types of communications. If you choose to receive these types of communications at the time of registration, but later decide you no longer want to receive them, simply email CCO at Remove CCO or contact us at the address in Contact.


Storage of your Personal Information by CCO

The personal information that you provide to CCO is held on our secure server. This information will only be accessible by CCO. Except as described above, we will not knowingly disclose any of this personal data to outside parties save when you expressly consent or I believe the law requires it.
