Links to Other Sites

CM may provide links to other web sites, some of which may display our logos, our products or other content. These web sites may have their own privacy policies, and all of these web sites and their privacy policies are independent of this Privacy Policy. By providing access to third party sites or advertisements, we are not endorsing the products or services provided by the owner or operator of such web sites.
