During a session on the site, a user may affirmatively submit information to CW by, among other means, electronic mail ("e-mail"), by filling in and submitting an on-line form, or by requesting an account. Such affirmatively submitted information is stored in a secure environment, and will be used by CW in furtherance of its duties and/or obligations to its users and/or members.

- Helping CW respond to a request for information not readily available from the site.

CW does not rent or sell personally identifiable information (i.e., information such as name, address, phone number, e-mail, etc., that identifies a user as a particular person), nor would CW exchange or trade such information with third-parties without a user's explicit permission.
If a user has elected not to receive further information from CW, the site will not send such information. If a site user has elected to receive further communication from CW, The site will only send information in categories that have been authorized. If the site sends electronic mail ("e-mail") to a user, such e-mail is NOT confidential, and is identical in nature to that information generally available to the public and news media.
In certain instances, a user may have the opportunity to receive or create a password to access or submit personally identifiable information. One should not divulge a password to anyone, and CW will never ask a user for a password in a telephone call, fax, e-mail or other form of unsolicited communication. When a user is finished with an application or applications that are password protected, such user should exit the relevant page(s). If the browser used to access said password protected pages is a publicly-accessible browser, users should close down the entire session and, if applicable or possible, flush any temporary caches or other areas where such a password might be stored subsequent to use.
CW has integrated industry standard or better security measures and systems into the design, implementation and day to day operation of the site and its underlying servers and networks.
This website generally does not use "persistent cookies." Cookies are text files, or entries in larger files, utilized to distinguish between visitors to a website, and to track information during multiple visits to a website. CW uses "temporary cookies" on some parts of the site, and such temporary cookies expire upon the end of the browsing session. If a user registers to use the site, CW may use a persistent cookie to facilitate such customization.
Rejecting and/or removing cookies may lead to loss of functionality on those pages requiring cookies to function fully. Additionally, if a user has created an account, the site will create a cookie that contains the user's unique identifier and indicator for any custom functionality.
No applications on the site specifically solicit information from minors or seek to determine whether the visitor is a minor. Consequently, because such information will not be specifically identified as being from minors, users of the site should be aware that personally identifiable information submitted to the site by minors will be subject to being treated in the same manner as information given by an adult.
