The forms on our site require registered members to provide a valid email address and postal code. Other personal information is requested, but not required. Such information may be used to provide you with personalized and matched content within the site; individual email inquiries may be forwarded to the appropriate ACS department for response. This information may be shared with our business partners on an aggregate basis only, with no identifiers. Information that is not used to directly support the service may be used in a research capacity to evaluate the benefits of this service. ACS does not share or sell any information that could be linked to your identity by third parties.
In the parts of the site where personal information is entered and viewed, ACS has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. To ensure that the data transferred between your Web connection and ours is not viewed by anyone but you, powerful Web site encryption technology is used. The CSN Web server is located at a Rackspace web-hosting facility. Rackspace allows us to offer a high-speed, high-availability internet connection backed by redundant network infrastructure and advanced, security technologies. Physical access to the CSN Web server is restricted only to the Rackspace support staff, and remote administrative access to the web and database servers is limited to a few ACS employees. All data entered in the CSN database is regularly backed up and the backup media is securely stored to prevent loss or damage.
