IHS believes that your personal information—including your purchase history, phone number(s), email and residential addresses, and credit card data—belongs to you. We collect this type of information to serve you better when you provide it to us.
What information do we collect?
We collect information from you when you register on or log into our site, place an order for a product or membership, make a donation, subscribe to our emails, respond to a survey or fill out a form.
When ordering, donating, logging-in, or registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, e-mail address, password, mailing address, phone number or credit card information. You may, however, visit our site anonymously.
What do we use your information for?
Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:
Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.
Do we disclose any information to outside parties?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information that you provide through our website. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect our or others’ rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
Information collected from IHS members online becomes a part of our offline member database. While we do not rent, sell or give away member emails to third parties for commercial purposes, we do work with outside entities on industry-wide benchmarking surveys and studies, which IHS members have the distinct privilege of being included, via email. We may also allow third parties to send information to you via regular mail because we think it contains business information in which you would be interested. Should you desire to opt out of including your address in occasional postal mailings from third parties, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your written request.
