This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising regarding CNE to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
The Cherokee Casinos website will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on CNE or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of CNE; and (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Cherokee Casinos website, CNE patrons or the public.
The Cherokee Casinos website uses "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a webpage server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Cherokee Casinos’ website pages, or register with the Cherokee Casinos website or services, a cookie helps CNE to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Cherokee Casinos website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of CNE services or the Cherokee Casinos website.
Security of your Personal Information
CNE secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. CNE secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") protocol.
