Information and use
Like all website owners, IIE receives and records information from your browser in our website server logs. Whenever you request a page through your browser, the navigation and clickstream data, such as IP address, browser (and version), operating system, date, time, and the site from which you came are stored in a log file. IIE uses software programs to create summaries from these statistics for such purposes as evaluating content worth, Website and system administration, and anonymous user analysis. This information cannot be used to identify specific individuals.
Aside from this standard tracking data, the only other personal information our site collects about you is such data as you knowingly provide to us. IIE is the sole owner of any information collected on this site. We will not sell, market, share, rent or otherwise distribute this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. We will only release personal information to another person or company with your consent or to the extent required by law.
In addition, IIE will not sell, market, share, rent or otherwise distribute any information provided to us by our donors to any third parties, except as required by law. Donors to IIE may contact the Development Office at any time regarding their personal information and to request corrections to such information.
Keeping your personal information secure is a top priority for IIE. Personal information is private and confidential; accordingly, the information provided is stored in a secure location, is accessible only by designated employees, trained in the proper handling of customer information, and is used only for the purpose for which the information is collected. Whenever IIE should hire other organizations to provide support services, we will require them to conform to our privacy standards and allow us to audit them for compliance.
