General Statement of Privacy and Protection of Personal Information
IVEP takes your privacy and security of Personal Information very seriously. This Policy describes the limited ways the information is used and the limited access to such information.
This Policy covers the treatment of personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) and other information gathered by IVEP when you are using or accessing the Website or using the Services. This Policy also covers IVEP’s treatment of any Personal Information that IVEP may share with its business partners or other third parties under very limited circumstances.
The Policy also covers “Customer Data”, which is all electronic data or information (in whatever form, including but not limited to photos, logos, other graphic forms, video, audio, and text) that you create while using the Services or that you display, post, submit, transmit or otherwise make available on or through the Website or Services.
This Policy does not apply to the general practices and treatment of information (whether personal or not) by third parties that IVEP does not own or control, including but not limited to any third party websites or services that you elect to access through the Website or via a link from the Website (“Third Party Website”), or to individuals that IVEP does not manage or employ. While we attempt to facilitate access or link only to those Third Party Websites that share our respect for your privacy, we cannot take responsibility for the content or privacy policies of those Third Party Websites. We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of any Third Party Website you access.
Finally, this Policy does not cover any Personal Information you send to IVEP via any non-secured mode of communications such as email, instant messenger or social networks, as communications via these methods may be subject to interception, loss, or alteration. While we welcome your comments and suggestions sent to us in this manner, we encourage you to carefully examine what Personal Information you send to IVEP via these methods.
No Collection of Personal Information as a Matter of Course
IVEP does not, as a matter of course, gather any of your Personal Information while you are using the Website or Services, unless you are asked to provide such information, for example by signing up for an account. Personal Information is only gathered with your informed consent. Where you have provided Personal Information, it will only be used for the stated purpose, as detailed more specifically in the next section.
Limited Gathering of Information for Statistical, Analytical and Security Purposes
IVEP automatically collects certain information using a third-party analytics program, Google Analytics or similar program to help us understand how our users use the Website and Services, but none of this information identifies you personally. For example, each time you visit the Website, we automatically collect certain information such as your IP address, browser and computer type, access times, the web page from which you came, and the web page(s) you access (as applicable). We use information collected in this manner only to better understand your needs and the needs of the Website users in the aggregate. IVEP also makes use of information gathered for statistical purposes to keep track of the number of visits to the Website and the specific pages on the Website with a view to introducing improvements.
