SMS Terms & Conditions
CCI offers recurring text message services. By opting-in to any such service, you are confirming your entry into a recurring texting program and you give your consent to CCI to use an automatic system to deliver text messages to the phone number to which you have directed it to transmit text messages. Message frequency varies.
CCI does not charge for our texting service; however, message and data rates may apply from your mobile carrier. Subject to the terms and conditions of your mobile carrier, you may receive text messages sent to your mobile phone. By providing your consent to participate in our texting service, you approve any such charges from your mobile carrier. Charges for text messages may appear on your mobile phone bill or be deducted from your prepaid balance.
CCI reserves the right to terminate the SMS service, in whole or in part, at any time without notice. The information in any message may be subject to certain time lags and/or delays.
To stop receiving text messages, text "STOP" or "QUIT". By enrolling in the texting service, you consent that after having submitted a request to opt-out you will receive one (1) final message confirming that you have been removed from the system. Following the opt-out confirmation message, no additional text messages will be sent unless you rejoin the system by texting "START" in response to the opt-out confirmation.
Our third party data processors
We use a number of third parties to process personal data on our behalf.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the Web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
We will report any unlawful data breach of this website’s database or the database(s) of any of our third party data processors to any and all relevant persons and authorities within 72 hours of the breach if it is apparent that personal data stored in an identifiable manner has been stolen.
How we store your personal information
As detailed in above, if you submit a comment to a blog post published on this website or submit a form, some personal information will be stored within this website’s database. This is currently the only occasion where personal data will be stored on this website. Your data may be stored through Wix.com’s data storage, databases and the general Wix.com applications. This data is currently stored on secure servers behind a firewall. In the near future we aim to change the storage of this data to a pseudonymous fashion meaning that the data would require additional processing using a separately stored ‘key’ before it could be used to identify an individual.
Pseudonymisation is a recent requirement of the GDPR which many web application developers are currently working to fully implement. We are committed to keeping it as a high priority and will implement it on this website as soon as we are able to.
