This website stores the following information when you create an account:

User accounts: Name, user name, email address, password, and IP address. If you login using a social login, please refer to that website's policies regarding what information is passed to us and from us, what information is retained, and how your information is used.

Analyst accounts: Name, affiliation, specialty, city/state or city/country, user name, email address, password, IP address, other information necessary to create an analyst account, and any material you post to this site.

How we use your information

Analyst accounts: An analyst's name; specialty or field of study; name of practice, university, or other affiliation and/or degree program; city/state or city/country; picture; and profile are available to all site users when you upload an analysis. Your profile will not include your email address.

All accounts: We do not sell, lend, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. However, we may share information with trusted third parties who assist us in operating this website, conducting CPSY business, or servicing you so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We do not lend, give, trade, or sell CPSY user or analyst account information, including email addresses. CPSY may provide a user's information to enforce CPSY website policies; to protect our or others' rights, property, or safety; to respond to a counter notice to claimed copyright infringement, or a notice of plagiarism or other intellectual property infringement; or if compelled to do so by legal authorities.

How we protect your information

The CPSY software contains security measures to help maintain the safety of your personal information. User-provided contributions are maintained on a secure server. We take reasonable precautions to prevent loss of data. Because the Internet is not a wholly secure technology, CPSY cannot guarantee that this site will never be hacked and user account information hacked, damaged, or stolen.

Aggregate user information

CPSY uses Google Analytics software and custom code to analyze site statistics. By understanding how the site is being used, this information helps us develop better ways to serve the CPSY community. We may share this aggregate information with third parties to help us improve our services. Information gathered outside of the CPSY website.

If and when CPSY representatives attend conferences or other venues, we may gather information from attendees and analysts. The privacy policy that covers such information will be provided at each venue.

Communication with CPSY

Any communication transmitted to CPSY in person or via phone, mail, or email is on a non-confidential basis with no promise by CPSY not to publish such communication, with the exception of communication between parties for the purpose of filing a DMCA notice, counter notice, or other legal notices. This right is not an intent to publish all communication, but is reserved for publication of harassing or similar communication.

If you send us email, we will use the information to improve our service or to respond to your request. We may also forward your email to others who may be better able to help you.

Notice regarding children under 13

CPSY cookies

The CPSY software sets a temporary session cookie on a visitor's computer whenever a page is visited. If you are reading and do not intend to log in or edit a page, you may deny this cookie. A persistent cookie may be set if you log in to maintain logged-in status, which is necessary if you intend to comment or submit an analysis. If you log in, your user name and password will persist unless you log out at the end of your visit and close the browser. Contributors using a public or shared computer who do not wish to allow other users to hijack their user name and password should log out after their session and close the browser. Contributors who do not wish to show their user name to future users of the machine should also clear their browser's cookies after their session; otherwise, your user name (without password) may appear when the next person clicks into the login screen.

CPSY may use cookies to compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools. We use Google Analytics and other software to better understand our site visitors and may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in this endeavor. These service providers are not permitted to use, retain, or transfer the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.
