How we use cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyze web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyze data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose 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. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Links to other websites

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.

Controlling your personal information

You may update or change your personal information at any time by logging into

If you have previously agreed to us using your personal information for direct marketing purposes, you may cancel this agreement at any time by writing to us or emailing us at, after which we will remove your data from the association and your membership will terminate at that time without refund of any fees or dues.

We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so. If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please contact us as soon as possible, at either of the following addresses:


1450 Techny Drive
Northbrook, IL 60062

We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.

In addition to the services provided via the Network’s website and related arenas, we host many events to which members are invited. Members, non-members, speakers and guests who attend these events hereby grant to interimCEO, Inc., its affiliates and their respective agents the unrestricted right and license to use the member’s name, likeness and voice in any photograph, production, reproduction, distribution, transmission, publication, public performance, broadcast or telecast of such events attended by the member.

Web Beacons

We allow other companies, called ad networks, to serve advertisements to members. Ad networks include third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors and research firms. We may “target” some ads to some members that fit a certain general profile – for example, “CFOs in Manufacturing.” To deliver these ads properly, we may include a file, called a web beacon, from these ad networks within pages served by us so the networks may provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for advertisers as well as to target ads to you while you visit other websites. Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network’s servers, these companies can view, edit or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.

Communications between members

Members have certain obligations regarding communications with other members. Certain of these obligations are imposed by applicable law and regulations, and others have become commonplace in user-friendly communities. Specifically, all members must respect the terms and conditions of our then-current Privacy Policy and the User Agreement including all intellectual property rights which may belong to third parties (such as photographs). Members may not download or otherwise disseminate any injurious, violent, offensive, racist or xenophobic information or information or communication that violates the purpose and spirit of AIE. You should not disseminate any information to us or other members that you believe might be injurious or detrimental to a person, professional or social status of any member. Any violation of these guidelines may lead to the restriction, suspension or termination of your membership without refund of fees or dues.

If passwords used

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our Site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
