1. Data Collection
IH may request or require you to provide certain PII, including, without limitation, your name, and e-mail address when you request to join our mailing list, send a question, submit work for IH consideration, and/or make a donation. We also use this information to improve the features, tools, functionality and content available on the Site or through IH, which may include use of such information in certain transactions or sharing arrangements with IH’s business partners.
We also collect and maintain aggregate information about the transactions that occur on the Site (e.g., tool or feature utilization, registration information, and activity, navigation, or content selection data).
IH may disclose PII when legally required to do so in accordance with subpoenas, government requests or regulations, or legal proceedings. IH may also disclose PII to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Site or as is otherwise required to limit legal liability, protect or defend our rights, property, or interests, or protect the safety, rights, or property of others.
2. Contact With You and Opting-Out
The collection, use, and sharing of your PII is necessary for IH mailing list. Use of PII may also be necessary for IH to provide certain features, programs, events, resources and services made available on the Site, and to operate and/or improve the Site. However, under other circumstances you can decide on your own if you wish to provide your PII or opt-out of doing so. For example, if IH conducts a survey on the Site, you do not have to participate unless you agree to do so.
IH also provides you with the opportunity to opt-out of certain IH business practices that may involve the use of your PII. For example, if you do not want to receive e-mail communications from us in the future, please let us know by contacting us through e-mail, telephone or written correspondence per the contact information provided in Section 4 below. Moreover, you may contact IH, per the contact information provided in Section 4, to opt-out of certain sharing arrangements with third parties.
We always use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving consumer data exchanged with our Site. With respect to stored data, IH has appropriate security measures in place at our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our Site. Although IH has endeavored to create a secure and reliable Site, however, the confidentiality or integrity of any communication, data, or material transmitted via the Internet or stored with IH cannot be 100% guaranteed. Accordingly, you should consider carefully if you want to submit PII via the Internet.
