Personal information we collect and use
We do not collect any personal information about you via social media or on our websites unless you choose to provide it to us voluntarily. We define “personal information” as information that is unique to you and might include your name, age, address, telephone number, email address or social security number. If you encounter a screen or page that requests information you do not want to share with us, do not enter the information and do not proceed with that screen or page. For further information regarding cookies, please see the “cookies” section of this privacy statement.
We appreciate your questions and comments about our social media platforms, websites and services, and welcome your email messages to mailboxes listed on our social media platforms or websites. We will share your messages with those within our organization who are most capable of addressing the issues contained in your message. We will keep a copy of your message until we have had an opportunity to address your concerns. We may archive your message for a certain period of time or discard it.
CPG provides experiences on social media platforms (e.g., Facebook, Twitter) or websites to enable online sharing and collaboration. Any content that you submit to any of our pages contained on a social media platform or website by e-mail, posting, messaging, uploading, downloading, or otherwise is done at your own risk and without any expectation of privacy. We may share e-mail addresses with social media platforms for marketing and event purposes. We may collect information you provide in your interactions with us via any social media platforms or websites, such as photographs, opinions, articles, etc. We cannot control the actions of other users of a social media platform or website and are not responsible for any submissions contained on a social media platform or website.
Confidentiality and security
We restrict access to personal information collected about you on our social media platforms or websites to our employees, our affiliates’ employees, or others who need to know that information to provide services to you or in the course of conducting our normal business operations. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect personal information.
Links to other sites
For your convenience, we may provide links to other websites and web pages that we do not control. We cannot be responsible for the privacy practices of any websites or pages not under our control and we do not endorse any of these websites or pages, the services or products described or offered on such sites or pages, or any of the content contained on those sites or pages.

Use of “cookies” or other data collection tools
A cookie is a file that a web server may place on your computer when you visit a website. Cookies are commonly used by websites to improve the user experience. Many cookies last only through a single website session, or visit. Others may have an expiration date or may remain on your computer until you delete them.
We may occasionally use other companies to set cookies on our websites and gather cookie information for us. In some cases, we may also use another company to operate web servers for our website. We use the cookie information gathered by these companies in the same manner as stated above.
In addition to the information we collect from cookies, we also obtain information that you provide to us online - for example, when you submit an application or otherwise communicate with us. In some cases, we retain both the cookie information and the information you provide to us online - for example, to complete a transaction you requested or to keep historical records of your past transactions.
If collected, we will take reasonable measures to protect the confidentiality of social security numbers and limit access to those with a need for such information. We prohibit the unlawful disclosure of social security numbers.
Changes to our social media privacy statement
We may change this Statement at any time; please check it periodically for changes. We will post the date it was last updated at the bottom of the Statement.
If you have any questions about this Statement or would like to learn more about how we protect privacy, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
