Therefore, if you choose to provide us with personal information, you are consenting to CAS’s collection, use, disclosure of your personal information and to the transfer and storage of that information on our servers in the United States, the European Union, and elsewhere in the world where CAS has facilities. CAS collects and stores the following personal information: email address, phone numbers, physical contact information, and (depending on the service used) sometimes financial information (including credit card and billing information); computer sign-on data, statistics on page views, traffic to and from CAS and ad data (all through cookies – you can take steps to disable the cookies on your browser although this is likely to affect your ability to use the site); other information, including users IP address and standard web log information.
CAS uses users’ personal information to:
provide our services;
track, confirm and fulfill purchases;
resolve disputes, collect fees, and troubleshoot problems;
encourage safe trading and enforce our policies;

We may share your information with members of the CAS corporate family — to provide joint content and services (like registration, transactions and customer support), to help detect and prevent potentially illegal acts and violations of our policies, and to guide decisions about their products, services and communications. Members of our corporate family will use this information to send you marketing communications only if you’ve requested their services.
CAS uses lots of tools (encryption, passwords, physical security) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure, but as you probably know, nothing’s perfect, so CAS makes no guarantees.
