Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyze web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
CCI uses cookies to recognize you when you return to our website. We use this only for the purposes of creating a more seamless visit for you by remembering your preferences from your previous visit.

Use of IP Addresses

When you visit CCI’s websites, our web server automatically collects a limited amount of information essential for the operation and security of our website. This information includes, but is not limited, to your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. IP addresses are unique numbers assigned by Internet Service Providers ("ISP") to all devices used to access the Internet. Web servers automatically log the IP addresses of visitors to their sites. The IP address, on its own, does not identify an individual. However, in certain circumstances, such as with the co-operation of an ISP for example, it could be used to identify an individual using the site. As such, the extent of personal identification from an IP address depends, in large part, on the "naming standards" followed by your ISP. You may wish to check with them to inquire about their policies and practices in this regard. CCI uses IP addresses for a variety of purposes, including:
(a) to analyze the performance, functionality and security of our website;
(b) to detect fraudulent uses of our website;
(c) to conduct general web analytics of our website, such as website traffic, number of visits to our website, the type of browser used to visit our website, and the date and time of the request; and
(d) to gather demographic information about what countries and domains our visitors come from and their behavior on our websites. CCI does not track your web browsing activity or online behaviour.
