Web Site Privacy Statement
The privacy, confidence, and trust of individuals who visit this cimav.com web site are important to us.
CIM Audio Visual, Inc. (d/b/a CIM Technology Solutions) values your privacy. This Privacy Statement
(the "Policy") is designed to tell you about our practices regarding collection, use, disclosure, processing
and storage of information that you may provide via the cimav.com website or through other features,
applications, emails, content, downloads, products or services (collectively, the “Site”) that are operated
by us.
Scope of this Privacy Statement
This Policy includes any separate privacy notices and/or notices posted on particular pages of the Site
that may provide more detail regarding personal information we collect on those pages, why we need
that information, and choices you may have about the ways we use that information.
If you sign up to use a special feature of the Site, you may be asked to expressly consent to special
terms, for example, by checking a box or clicking on a button marked, “I agree.” This separate
agreement will supplement or amend this Policy, but only with respect to the matters governed by such
separate agreement.
If you are located outside of the United States, please note that any personal information collected
through this Site may be transferred to the United States and other countries that might not provide an
equivalent level of protection as the data protection laws in your home country. Your use of this Site or
submission of any personal information will therefore constitute your consent to the transfer of your
personal information outside of your home country. Please do not provide information to us, either
directly or indirectly, if you do not accept this Policy or are in a country or location where this Policy
violates local laws or regulations, or the use of our services is not permitted.
Please be sure to read this entire Policy before submitting any information to the Site. We may update
this Policy from time to time. We will also revise the "updated" date at the top of this Policy. We
encourage you to periodically review the Policy.
Collection of Personal Information
"Personal information" refers to any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual who

visiting our office and it includes such items as an individual's name, address, e-mail address or phone
number. CIM Audio Visual, Inc. (d/b/a CIM Technology Solutions) only collects the personal information
that is necessary to provide the information or services requested by you.

and no attempt is made to profile individuals who use the Site.

was collected or as subsequently notified unless such other use is authorized by you or required by
applicable law. The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on the Site’s latest
product announcements, software updates, and upcoming events. It also helps us to improve our
services, content, and any advertising. If you don't want to be on our mailing list, you can opt out
anytime by updating your preferences. From time to time, we may use your personal information to
send important notices, such as communications about purchases and changes to our terms, conditions,
and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with CIM Audio Visual, Inc. (d/b/a

Cookies and Other Technologies
Cookies are short and simple text files that are stored on a user's computer hard drive by web sites. We
may use cookies and other technologies such as pixel tags and web beacons to keep track of and store
information so the user does not have to supply the information multiple times. We treat information
collected by cookies and other technologies as non-personal information. However, to the extent that
Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law,
we also treat these identifiers as personal information. Similarly, to the extent that non-personal
information is combined with personal information, we treat the combined information as personal
information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.
You can configure your web browser to refuse cookies or to notify you when a web site attempts to
send you a cookie. You can also check your hard drive for cookie files and delete them from your
computer. Please note, however, that if you do turn off cookies, the Site may not work as intended and
may lose some functionality.
As is true of most websites, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This
information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service
provider (ISP), referring and exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We may use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the Site, to learn about
user behavior on the site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We
may also use this information in our marketing and advertising services.
In some of our email messages, we may use a "click-through URL" linked to content on the Site. When
customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the
destination page on our website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in
particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be
tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages.
Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read, and they tell us whether
mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.
Note that your app device may allow you to block or manage push notifications, location information,
in-app purchases, or online access.
Security
CIM Audio Visual, Inc. (d/b/a CIM Technology Solutions) is committed to the security of the information
that is either available from or collected by this Site. We have taken multiple steps to safeguard the
integrity of our telecommunications and computing infrastructure, including but not limited to,
authentication, monitoring, auditing, and encryption.
Please keep your user name, password or other access information confidential to protect against
unauthorized access. You should also adopt strong passwords that others cannot easily guess.

not responsible for the content or privacy practices of third party sites and suggests you review their
privacy statements.
Privacy of Children
The Site is a general audience site that is not designed nor intended to collect personal information from
children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under the
age of 13. We do not use such information, and will take reasonable measures to delete it if we discover

personal information from students for the use and benefit of the school, and for no other commercial
purpose. Please be assured that we do not collect, process or disclose student data for any commercial
purposes including advertising or marketing.
Access
You have the right to access your personal information stored with us to ensure that it is accurate,
complete and current. Upon request, we will grant you reasonable access, except where the burden or
expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to your privacy or where the rights of
other persons would be violated. In addition, we will take reasonable steps to correct, amend or delete
information that you can independently demonstrate is inaccurate or incomplete.
You may withdraw your consent to the collection, use and transfer of your personal information,
however, please note that, by withdrawing your consent, it may be impossible for CIM Audio Visual, Inc.
