CIF

Cost, Insurance and Freight

A CPT involving ocean freight. In a CIF, the seller is responsible for paying for shipping and providing a minimum amount of insurance coverage up to the named port of destination, while the buyer is responsible for the transportation risk beyond the minimum coverage as soon as the good or product is loaded onto the ship. Legally, risk transfers when the good or product crosses the outer rail of the ship. A CIF is similar to a CFR, but also requires the seller to provide minimal insurance. See also: Incoterm.

Customer Information File

A file a bank keeps on each of its account holders and other clients. It contains information on account balances, outstanding loans, assets and so forth. It is updated frequently to ensure correct information.

Unfortunately, an exact match will be difficult because the resolution of the meter on a CD-R does not have sufficient granularity; even a professional one will be coarse around -20dB.
Support for more models including new TEAC, Ricoh, and Pioneer CD-Rs and jukebox systems from CopyPro and other manufacturers will be announced soon.
