IANS respects your privacy. We want to make use of the personal identifying information that you provide to us for purposes of serving you better. Personal identifying information is information that enables us to identify you, such as your E-mail address, name, title and address. IANS uses your personal identifying information to personalize your experience on the IANS website and to selectively send you communications that may be of interest to you, whether electronically or otherwise.
IANS's policy regarding use of your personal identifying information, supplied to us or collected via our online website or other means, covers these areas:
1. Notices and Disclosure
This Privacy Statement is made available to you in order to make you aware of how IANS collects and uses personal identifying information.
IANS may collect the following information from you: domain name, name, information regarding what pages are accessed, information volunteered by you, such as survey information, E-mail address, or site registrations, and your preferred means of communication.
IANS does not make personal identifying information available to third parties for any purpose not approved by you. IANS may use such information to contact you for IANS's marketing purposes.
IANS gives its registered users the choice to opt out of having any personal identifying information provided in the registration process used for any purpose unrelated to the purpose for which such information was provided.
Additionally, when you sign up for an E-mail list on the IANS website, you will be given instructions at that time on how to remove yourself from that list.
Access to certain of IANS's resources requires a login and password or other forms of user authentication. The use of those resources, and the information or programs downloadable from those resources, may be governed by a written agreement between your employer and IANS. Any of the personal identifying information collected during your use of the resources may be retained by IANS to verify compliance with the agreement, to log software licenses granted, to track data or software downloaded from those pages, or to track usage of other applications available on IANS's resources.
3. Data Security
IANS is committed to taking reasonable steps to protect your personal identifying information from compromise or misuse.
4. Data Quality and Access
The accuracy of your personal identifying information is important to IANS. We are working on ways to make it practical for you to review and correct the information that IANS maintains about you.
