Chronus collects and securely stores information on behalf of the Organization you are affiliated with, and for the sole purpose of facilitating the services available on this site (the “Site”). Chronus may collect such information, including Personal Information (as defined below), in a number of different ways. For example, Chronus collects all registration information when you sign up for the services available on this Site. This includes, but is not limited to, your name, email address, and physical address.

When you use this Site, Chronus’s servers automatically collect information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, your computer’s operating system, your browser type, the address of a referring website, and other similar information. Chronus also collects non-identifying information such as traffic volume, frequency of visits, lengths of visits, etc. Such information is not linked to you or your account; rather, such information is aggregated and solely used to help Chronus improve its services (such information is collectively referred to as “Log Data.”). Chronus also collects information through the use of “cookies.” Generally, cookies are small data files that are stored on a hard drive at the request of a website to enable the website to recognize pervious visitors and pull-up that user’s preferences or other information.
Chronus uses all information it collects, including Personal Information, for the exclusive purposes of operating this Site and improving the Site’s features and services. Chronus does not own any of the information we collect (with the exception of Log Data); rather, Chronus stores and secures the information we collect on behalf of the Organization. This means that Chronus does not, subject to the exceptions stated below, sell, lease, transfer, distribute, or otherwise convey any Personal Information to any Third Parties whatsoever.
THIS SITE PROVIDES AREAS FOR “PRIVATE MENTORING” AND A “PRIVATE JOURNAL.” THESE AREAS ARE TRULY PRIVATE, AND ARE NOT REVIEWED BY CHRONUS OR THE ORGANIZATION UNLESS CHRONUS OR THE ORGANIZATION REASONABLY BELIEVES ACCESS AND REVIEW OF SUCH AREAS AND INFORMATION IS NECESSARY TO PREVENT OR REDUCE HARM OR LIABILITY. USER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES TO SUCH ACCESS AND REVIEW FOR THE PURPOSES DESCRIBED HEREIN.
Exceptions to Transfer of Personal Information
In the event Chronus sells substantially all of its assets to a third-party acquirer (or merges with such third-party), information, including your Personal Information, will likely be transferred to the acquirer. Likewise, in the event Chronus goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, such information would likely be transferred to a third party acquiring the assets.
Chronus may provide information, including Personal Information, to third-party vendors, consultants, or other service providers (“Service Providers”) for the purposes of operating this Site or improving its services. Chronus will only share such information to the extent necessary for the Service Providers to carry out their work for us.
