What information does IRD request, and how is it used?
When you submit your information through the website, we collect personally identifying information about you and your company, including such information as your name, company name, phone number, address, e-mail address, and the type of product you are inquiring about. This registration information is used to identify you to your area representative and enables us to communicate with you, and better understand what kind of additional content and services that may interest you. We may also compile certain information you provide us into aggregate profile data, which we use for market and trend analysis, and other purposes.
Who has access to my information?
We store all information we gather from you on proprietary servers. We will not disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties except to the extent that any legal process requires it, or where we believe disclosure is necessary to protect or enforce our rights or the rights of any third party. Although we will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard the privacy of your company and personal information, transmissions made by means of the Internet cannot be made absolutely secure. Also, please note that we do not control the privacy policies of our third party vendors, our advertisers and other third party sites to which we provide banner ads and links. Accordingly, IRD assumes no liability for disclosure of any information due to errors in transmission, unauthorized acts of third parties, or resulting from information provided other than through the website.
What else should I know about my privacy?
You should be aware that if you voluntarily disclose personal information online in a public area, information may be collected and used by others. We do not control the actions of our visitors and registered users. If you disclose personal information in a discussion room, forum, or any other publicly accessible place on the website, you do so at your own risk and you understand that your submitted information may be collected and used by others.
If you have questions or concerns on our specific privacy practices, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
