Privacy Policy
Last updated May 9, 2016
Chronus LLC (“Chronus” or “we”) provides this Privacy Policy to inform our websites’ users, requesters of products and services information, event registrants and participants, Chronus news, promotion participants, users of our services and others (collectively referred to as “customers” or “you”) about our practices regarding collection, use, and disclosure of personally identifiable information (“personal data”) that we collect through our website: and services (collectively, “Services”).
We will share your personal information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this Privacy Policy. We do not sell your personal information to third parties.
While Services may include links or references to non-Chronus websites, materials, or entities, this Privacy Policy does not apply to those non-Chronus sites, materials, or entities unless otherwise indicated.


You should read this entire Privacy Policy before submitting information to Chronus or using any Services. Whenever you submit information via the Services or otherwise to Chronus, whether online or offline, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.


Chronus may collect personal data from customers both online and offline. In many cases, such information will be collected directly from you, such as through a transaction or inquiry, or your submission of a form, registration, or communication to us. Information may also be gathered from third-party sources (including without limitation, opt-in lists, publicly available data, consumer reporting agencies, other companies, and referrals) and through your activities and interactions with us. We may combine data collected from these disparate sources.
Chronus collects personal data about its customers in a number of ways. While we have tried to be complete, this list is not necessarily exhaustive, given that these activities can vary from time to time.
The types of personal data typically collected by Chronus may include the following, depending on your activities:
  • Contact information, including name, title, street address (home, work), postal code, country, telephone numbers (home, work, cell, etc.), email address (home, work), company name, and other similar information.
  • Personal/demographic information, including gender, level of education and the like.
  • User content, including information provided when you use one of our online communities, forums or other online means of communications, and all other user submissions and content you provide.


As you use our Services, some information can be “passively” collected using various technologies, such as cookies, web beacons, and navigational data collection (clickstream, log files, server logs, etc.). Your Internet browser automatically transmits some of this information, such as the URL of the website you just visited and the Internet Protocol (IP) address and browser version currently being used by your computer. Such technologies help us to keep track of your interactions with our Services, and provide you with a more customized experience, and may include referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks.
We use both session cookies (which exist only until you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which exist for a longer, specified period of time) on this website. The type of cookies used on our website can generally be put into three categories: Strictly Necessary, Performance/Analytics and Functionality. Strictly Necessary cookies on our website are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features. These cookies don’t gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you have been on the internet. Performance/Analytics Cookies on our website collect information about how visitors use the website. For example, these cookies collect information about which pages visitors go to the most often, and if visitors get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identify a visitor. Information collected by performance/analytics cookies is aggregated and anonymous and only used to improve how our website works. Functionality cookies allow our website to remember choices you make and provide enhanced, more personal features to you.
The use of cookies by our service providers are not covered by our privacy statement. We do not have access or control over these cookies.
Chronus websites may also use IP addresses for the same purposes identified above, as well as to analyze trends, administer the website, track users’ movements, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use and to confirm that a particular individual affirmed his/her consent to specific legal terms (e.g. our clickwrap license agreement).
We may use web beacons (also known as Internet tags or clear GIFs) on our Services to access and set cookies and otherwise help us to better understand how users are utilizing our websites. Information provided by the web beacon includes the computer’s IP address, the type of browser being used, and the time that the web beacon was viewed. We may also use web beacons in emails and newsletters so that we know when such communications have been opened and to otherwise help us tailor our communications to individual users.
Chronus uses personal data about customers for a wide range of purposes. We use it to respond to your requests (including requests for newsletter subscriptions, materials, support, and so on); to provide products or services that you have ordered; to process your order transactions and contact you regarding your order; to provide materials you have requested; to invite and help you participate in online and offline events, and/or activities; to allow you to post information and other content online (including in response to other postings); to improve our products, services, and websites; to follow up with you after you have communicated with us or submitted information to us; to send promotional communications or offers (unless you have requested that we not send such communications); for marketing and research purposes; for internal and/or external training, quality assurance, and other purposes (including without limitation, call center recordings); to allow you to contact another person; for legal and contractual reasons; to address your interests and concerns; and as otherwise specified in this Privacy Policy and/or at the point of personal data collection.
We may disclose personal data you provide to our affiliates and partners and to consultants, service providers, and contractors that we use to support our business and operations (e.g., delivery services, financial institutions, fulfillment services, technical support, advertising, public relations, media and marketing services, legal services, call-in centers, e-commerce and other web-related services such as web hosting and web monitoring services, and event-related services such as online and offline data capture services) who have agreed to keep the information confidential and use it only to provide the applicable service(s). In some cases, we work with other companies who help to gather information from you or help us to communicate with you.
We may also disclose personal data to third parties (including without limitation, governmental agencies) if required to do so by law, regulation, or court order; to respond to governmental and/or law enforcement requests; to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interfering with our (or others’) rights or property; to support any claim, defense, or declaration in a case or before any jurisdictional and/or administrative authority, arbitration, or mediation panel; or in connection with disciplinary actions/investigations. Likewise, we may disclose personal data to third parties in connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of Chronus, its business or the website to which such data applies. In the event that Chronus goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company or sale of a portion of its assets, our customers’ personal information may be part of the assets transferred. Customers will be notified via prominent notice on our website prior to a change of ownership or control of their personal information. If, as a result of the business transaction, your personally identifiable information will be used in a manner materially different from that stated at the time of collection, you will be notified consistent with our Privacy Policy.
We may process your or your users’ personal data in the U.S. or any other countries in which we have a presence or facilities (including through our subcontractors).
We may make full use of all information that is de-identified or otherwise not in personally identifiable form, including without limitation, user-generated content.


Chronus takes appropriate steps to protect personal data from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction, whether in transmission or storage. If you have any questions about security in our Services, you can contact us via the contact information below.


We want to keep in touch with you in ways that you find to be beneficial. By submitting personal contact information, you are agreeing that we may communicate with you via email, telephone, direct mail, and/or other means of communication. If you don’t want us to use your contact information for promotional purposes (such as to tell you about other products and services that might be of interest), please tell us that when you provide your contact information. You can also let us know your preference later by contacting us as specified in the “Contact Us” section below, or by following the unsubscribe instructions in various communications that we may send you. Keep in mind that these preferences regarding promotional contacts do not mean that we might not contact you for other reasons, such as those related to an order you placed, an inquiry you made, a newsletter to which you may have subscribed, a membership you undertook, an event for which you registered, a legally required notice, and so on.


Our Services are not directed to children and we do not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under 13 years of age through our sites.
