In order to use the For Sumivtsi Only section of this web site, a user must be a member of CYM. Access to the For Sumivtsi Only site is granted by a local representative of CYMnet. Therefore, no identifiable information specific to the user is gathered through the web site as part of granting access to the For Sumivtsi Only site. Registration for the Discussion Forum requires the disclosure of the user's email address, indication of whether the user has reached his 13th birthday and, optionally, their CYM branch information. This disclosed information will not be sold, shared or rented by CYM. Registration of individuals below the age of 13 requires the witten authoriztion of a parent or legal guardian.

Orders and Entries

We sometimes request information from the user on our order forms or contest entry forms. These order forms exist for the purpose of allowing the user to order goods and/or services from CYM or enter in a contest being conducted by CYM. Here a user must provide contact information (like name and shipping address). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill the user's orders or deliver a contest prize. If we have trouble processing an order or delivering an item, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.

Log Files

We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.


We will share aggregated demographic information only internally within CYM. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person, and is never released to persons outside of CYM. We use an outside shipping company or governmental postal services to ship orders. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.


This web site occasionally contains links to other sites. Please be aware that CYM is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. CYMnet encourages our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information.

Children's Privacy

CYMnet is committed to protecting children's online privacy. In accordance with the United States' Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, CYMnet will not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 without first obtaining parental consent. CYMnet encourages parents to monitor and supervise the online activities of their children and to consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help guarantee a child-friendly online environment. These tools can prevent children from disclosing their name, address, and other personal information without parental consent. CYMnet also reminds parents to carefully review the privacy policies of all web sites that their children visit, including those web sites linking to or from our site. Any information provided to these web sites will be subject to the privacy policy posted at the site. The fact that another web site has established a link to or from our site is not an endorsement of that site's privacy policy by CYM. Individual photographs and other graphic images of individuals under the age of 18 are placed only on the For Sumivtsi Only section of our web site. An exception to this rule is a photograph or image in which a Minor is not readily individually identifiable (e.g. photographs taken at a distance). Where photographs are posted on the For Sumivtsi Only section, the names, email or postal addresses or telephone numbers of the Minor depicted will not accompany the photograph without the permission of a parent or legal guardian of that Minor. Any parent who objects to a photograph of their Minor child that has been posted on the web site must notify CYMnet in writing (via postal service to CYMnet, P.O. Box 395, Walker Valley, N.Y, 12588, USA) or by email ( and that photograph will be removed in a reasonable amount of time.

Notification of Changes

If CYMnet decides to change this privacy policy, CYMnet will post those changes so our users are always aware of what information is collected, how CYMnet uses it, and under what circumstances, if any, CYMnet will disclose it. CYMnet will use information in accordance with the privacy policy in effect at that time.
