What Information Does ICC Collect From You in Connection with the ICC Web Site?
Personally Identifiable Information
ICC and its third-party service providers collect and store certain personally identifiable information that you voluntarily provide or otherwise convey through your use of the ICC Web Site, such as web pages that allow you to register for events, provide us with input on our ICC Owned Site, participate in on-line surveys. Such information may include your name, address, e-mail address, credit card information (when applicable) and similar types of information. Additionally, some features of the ICC Web Site may ask you to provide certain health information in addition to your name, address and email. Although certain areas of the ICC Web Site may require that you provide us or third-party service providers with such personally identifiable information in order, for example, to complete certain on-line forms, you are free to use the remainder of the ICC Web Site without providing such personally identifiable information and may exit such forms at any time.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
ICC and third-party service providers also collect non-personally identifiable information such as web site usage, traffic patterns, site performance and related statistics based on our tracking of your visits to the ICC Web Site. Although such information may not be personally identifiable, we can determine from an IP address a visitor’s Internet Service Provider and the geographic location of his or her point of connectivity. We may also use small text files placed on a user’s computer hard drive (“Cookies”) to help us determine the type of content and sites to which a visitor to the ICC Web Site links, the length of time each visitor spends at any particular area of the ICC Web Site and the ICC services visitors choose to use. Cookies allow ICC to serve you better and more efficiently, and to personalize your experience at the ICC Web Site. Nevertheless, you should be able to control how and whether Cookies will be accepted by your web browser. For more information on how to do so, please refer to the documentation accompanying your browser.
How We Use (and Do Not Use) the Information We Gather in Connection with the ICC Web Site
Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the different ways ICC and third-party service providers use the information gathered through the ICC Web Site. Keep in mind that ICC cannot and does not assume any responsibility for any actions or omissions of third parties, including the manner in which they use information received either from ICC or independently through frames on or links within the ICC Web Site. Nevertheless, in the event that you encounter any third party associated with, or who claims association with, ICC who you feel is improperly collecting or using information about you, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your request; we will be happy to forward your message to the third party.
Personally Identifiable Information
ICC may use personally identifiable information that we or third-party service providers receive or collect from you to provide and improve our products and services, send announcements, marketing materials or other communications, process your requests, or otherwise administer our business. ICC will use much of the personally identifiable information that you provide primarily for the purposes for which it was collected. For example, we will use information submitted for event registration to administer the events and to notify you about event schedules and event information, information provided for donations will be used to display donor and donation information in accordance to the donor’s preference, and information provided by on-line survey participants may be used to compile statistics regarding user preferences by geographic location or other demographics. The personally identifiable information collected by ICC and third-party service providers may also be used to improve the content of the ICC Web Site and to better address the needs and interests of ICC Web Site visitors. For example, ICC may send its own e-mail solicitations to visitors who have not “opted out” of receiving such communications. The solicitations are limited in that they, among other things, will clearly indicate the originator of the e-mail and provide the customer with a method of “opting out” of receiving future communications of a similar nature.
Although ICC does not sell personally identifiable information about ICC Web Site visitors to third parties, we may, in certain circumstances, share personally identifiable information with third parties and provide you with the opportunity to provide personally identifiable information to third-party service providers directly through linked and framed web pages. For example, ICC may use third-party service providers to facilitate our services and provide operations for one or more aspects available through the ICC Web Site. Such third-party service providers may, in certain circumstances, require a visitor’s personally identifiable information in order to facilitate certain services and provide such operations. For instance, ICC uses a third-party service provider for processing certain billing, credit card and donation transactions. Any credit card information submitted by you to ICC, therefore, will be submitted directly to our credit card processing service provider through a frame on the ICC Web Site.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
ICC will use the non-personally identifiable information it collects in connection with your ICC Web Site usage for making changes or enhancements to the ICC Web Site and to better address the needs and interests of the ICC Web Site visitors, as well as for other internal administrative purposes. We also may use data regarding ICC Web Site usage to determine which pages of the ICC Web Site are most helpful to visitors and to improve the information available through such pages. Further, we may provide statistical information and other non-personally identifiable information to affiliates and other current and potential third-party service providers. We may also use aggregate data to inform these third-party service providers as to the number of people who have seen and clicked on links to their web sites.
What About Third Party-Privacy Policies?
The ICC Web Site contains links to other Internet web sites, which may direct you to an external web site or which may be displayed within a frame on the ICC Owned Site, including co-branded or other affiliated sites which may or may not be owned or operated by ICC. Links to the ICC Web Site may also be featured on independent third-party web sites. ICC has no control, and is not responsible for, the privacy practices of other web sites that may host links to the ICC Web Site or that you may visit through links or frames on the ICC Owned Site, including such sites’ use of any information (such as IP number, browser type, or usage history) collected when visitors to the ICC Owned Site click through links to such sites or access such sites through frames. We recommend that you review individual site privacy policies before providing any information on such web sites.
Protecting Personally Identifiable Information
ICC uses reasonable security measures to protect the personally identifiable information that we collect via the ICC Owned Site. However, while we take reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot guarantee and do not warrant or represent, that all information will be protected against loss, misuse, or unauthorized access by third parties. By your use of the ICC Web Site, you agree and stipulate that your use of the Internet and the ICC Web Site is at your own risk, that no Internet data transmission can be guaranteed as secure from such incidents, and that you will not hold us responsible for any breach of security that is not solely caused by our negligence.
To the extent provided by applicable laws, you also may have the right to have the data or content deactivated, blocked, anonymized, or deleted, as appropriate, request and receive a copy of the personal data you have provided us and to transmit this data to a third party, and lodge a complaint with the applicable data protection authority. To exercise any of these rights that you are not able to do directly, please contact us either via email or mail using the information provided below.
