Links To Other Sites

Our Service may contain links to other sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party's site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit.

We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.

CMA is not responsible for the content or practices of third party websites that may be linked to the Site. The Site is also not responsible for any information that you might share with such linked websites. You should refer to each website’s respective privacy policy and practices prior to disclosing any information.

Children's Privacy

Our Service does not address anyone under the age of 13 ("Children").

CMA recognizes the special obligation to protect personally identifiable information obtained from children age 13 and under. As such, if you are 13 years old or younger, CMA requests that you not submit any personal information to the site or to the Academy. If CMA discovers that a child age 13 or younger has signed up on the Site or provided us with personally identifiable information, we will delete that child’s identifiable information from our records.

The Academy nonetheless encourages parents to go online with their kids. Here are a few tips to help make a child’s online experience safer:

  1. Teach kids never to give personal information, unless supervised by a parent or responsible adult. Includes name, address, phone, school, etc.
  2. Know the sites your kids are visiting and which sites are appropriate.
  3. Look for Website privacy policies. Know how your child’s information is treated.

Check out the FTC’s site for more tips on protecting children's privacy online

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your Children has provided us with Personal Data, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected Personal Data from children without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers.

Malware/Spyware/Viruses 

Neither CMA nor the Site knowingly permits the use of malware, spyware, viruses, and/or other similar types of software.

Bulletin Boards, Comments and Chat Areas 

Guests of the Site are solely responsible for the content of messages they post on the Academy’s forums, such as comments, chat rooms and bulletin boards. Users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personal information (e.g., user name, e-mail address, phone number) on the bulletin boards or in the chat areas, that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other people. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these instances. Please take care when using these features.

As stated previously in this Privacy Policy, the Site will provide you the opportunity to opt-in to receive communications from us at the point where we request information about you. You always have the option of removing your name from any e-mail list in order to discontinue any such future communications. In order to ensure immediate removal from any list, please follow the specific instructions set forth within the communications you receive from the Academy which you no longer wish to receive. If you are unsuccessful in completing the instructions specified in any such communication, please use the contact webform at the link below, including a copy of the undesired email copied in your message, and state you wish to be removed from the mailing list.

Information provided by you via general e-mail inquiries to the Site such as your e-mail address is used only to respond to your inquiries in the ordinary course of business, and is never shared with outside third parties.

Security 

Security for all personally identifiable information is extremely important to us. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
