Braindump Policy
We define ‘braindump’ as the practice of copying and sharing actual certification exam questions for the purpose of passing the exam rather than learning the material. Braindumps are unethical and violate the policies and copyrights of certification exam providers. Braindumps also represent a violation of exam non-disclosure agreements. You agree that you will not provide braindumps, ask for information about the location of braindump sites, or provide any information intended to guide people to braindump sites.

‘Warez’ is a slang term used to describe illegal or unauthorized copies of commercial, licensed software (also known as bootleg software). You agree that you will not ask for or provide information on the location of ‘warez’ software or various cracks that are intended to circumvent the software protections vendors have implement to protect unauthorized use of their software.

Contact Information
Our site’s registration form requires users to give us contact information (name, country, postal code and e-mail address) as well as demographic information. We use this information to send e-mail and messages to our users about our company, and promotional material from our partners and/or advertisers. However, even though you may have requested to not receive any opt-in E-mail, by providing us with your E-Mail address or by using this Web Site you agree that CodeExcellence may, from time to time, send you E-mail that we believe may be of interest to you.

We run contests and promotions on our site in which we ask visitors for contact information (such as their e-mail address for the purpose of notifying winners), too. Users may choose to opt-out of receiving CodeExcellence.com mailings using the methods we describe in the Choice/Opt-out section below. Additionally, when users sign up for promotional email from PostMaster Direct through our Web site, they have the ability to opt out of receiving third-party promotional email prior to receiving such mail from PostMaster Direct.

In addition, we offer users options for informing a friend about our site. We ask for the friend’s name and e-mail address to automatically send a one-time e-mail inviting the friend to visit the site. We also allow users to forward a page to a friend from our site by entering their e-mail address. We do not keep or use these e-mail addresses for any other purpose.

User Information
Demographic and profile data is also collected at our site. CodeExcellence also collects and logs information your computer provides our Web servers when you connect to our site. This information may include your IP address, domain names, access times, referring Web sites, and browser type. This information is a normal and necessary part of the communication that occurs between your computer and our Web site over TCP/IP. We use these logs to provide statistics about our Web site usage and to assist us in the maintenance, design, and operation of our Web site and to further ensure relevant communications with our users.

These IP addresses are visible to site administrators only. With the exception just noted, we do not tie in log files with personally identifiable information.
Our online surveys ask visitors for specific demographic information (such as ZIP code, age, and income level). We use this data to tailor our visitors’ experience, develop our content offerings, and display preferred content.

We may also collect information in the form of résumés that members may voluntarily post on our site. These résumés include information one would normally see on a standard résumé, such as address, name, professional skills, desired job, expected salary, and so on. This information may be viewed by potential employers and staffing agencies. However, you have the option of making personally identifiable information confidential so that potential employers will see only a candidate ID number, and will only be able to contact you through the CodeExcellence Web Site. You also have the option to prevent staffing agencies and representative from specific companies from seeing your resume.

If you contact CodeExcellence via email, we use your email address to reply directly to you. You are not subject to secondary or promotional communication from us or third parties as a result of your email to us, unless you specifically request such communication.
