IPI is strongly committed to maintaining and protecting the privacy of its customers and their personal information. IPI has certain policies and measures in effect in order to achieve this and make sure their experience is as safe and enjoyable as possible.
Types of Information Collected and How it is Used
The extent of information we collect ranges depending on your level of interactivity with the site. Many users will simply view publicly available web page content. In this case, we only track a minimal amount of information, such as the user's IP address, browser type, and a unique identifier to the user's computer. This information helps us better understand our user base and how they are using our site. A cookie may be used to store this identifier (a cookie is a small data file that is sent to your computer when visiting a website). Cookies sent by IPI will never contain personal or confidential information, such as names, addresses, or passwords.
Some visitors of the site may choose to become members. If you wish to do this, we ask for more information from you to further identify yourself. There are several reasons for this:
- When accessing your personal information, we can correctly identify you as an authorized user
- Some of our content (such as certain business solutions) is not freely available to the public — we would like to know who you are before we disclose this information to you
- It may be necessary for IPI to contact you, for one reason or another
Please note that this information is strictly for IPI's usage. As a member, you may opt-out of receiving certain types of communications from IPI. However, IPI reserves the right to send you important notices regarding its services, web site, and your membership.
Disclosure of Personal Information
We will not disclose any personally identifying information to third parties, unless we believe it is necessary by law or regulation, to enforce our terms of service (for investigations of possible violations), or to protect IPI, its products and services, and its users. Thus, under most circumstances, IPI will not reveal your information to anyone.
There may be cases where you want to send certain type of information to someone else, such as for marketing purposes. We will only reveal the requested information with your express permission.
IPI takes several security measures to ensure that your personal information and privacy are protected. Your information is protected using commercially available security products and carefully implemented security procedures. We ensure that your information is not misused or tampered with.
