In general, CRV uses personal information it collects to pursue our mission and operations, including the management of our Website and to engage in related activities. This may include storing information you in connection with your profile so that we can recognize you when you access your Account and make offers available to you based on information you provided.

We reserve the right, but do not undertake a duty, to notify you of court orders, subpoenas or other legal process if allowed.

We generally will retain information for as long as required, allowed or for as long as we believe it useful. If you cease using the Website, or your permission to use the Website is terminated, we may continue to use and disclose your personal information in accordance with this Policy.
