What information do we collect from users and how is it used?
IEC is the sole owner of information collected on this Site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways that are different from what is disclosed in this policy.
IEC collects information from our users at several different points on our Site.
Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time, our Site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level).
If you correspond with us via e-mail, we may gather information in a file specific to you. We may use this information you provide us to analyze Site usage, improve the Site, our content and product offerings and to customize our Site’s content, layout and services. However, for these purposes, we only use your personal information on an aggregated basis without the use of any information that personally identifies you.
URL and IP address
Like many other websites, IEC collects information about users' utilization and navigation of our Site. This information helps us to design our Site to better suit our users' needs. For example, our Site will track the URL that you visited before you came to our Site, the URL to which you next go and your Internet Provider (IP) address. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Site. Your IP address also is used to help identify you and to gather broad demographic information.
To whom does IEC disclose personal information?
As a general rule, IEC will not share, rent, sell or otherwise disclose any of your personal data except when we have your permission. However, IEC may disclose personal data in the following ways:
We may disclose your personal data to third party service providers and contractors who perform services for IEC [in order to complete or confirm your transaction, including processing payment transactions. In the case of payment transactions, your personal data is also shared with third parties (such as banks and credit card processors) by our service providers to the extent necessary for the service provider to deliver payment processing services]. These service providers and contractors are permitted to use the personal data only for the purposes of performing such services.
We may gather aggregated data about users and disclose the results of such aggregated information to advertisers for marketing or promotional purposes. In these situations, we do not disclose to these entities any information that could be used to personally identify you.
IEC may disclose the information obtained from you through this Site as part of a merger, acquisition or other sale of its assets or business.
Moreover, we may be legally obligated to disclose information to the government or to third parties under certain circumstances, such as illegal activity on our Site. IEC reserves the right to release personally identifiable information to law enforcement or other government officials, as IEC, in our sole and absolute discretion, deems necessary or appropriate to comply with law, comply with contractual obligations, or to protect the rights, property or safety of IEC or its suppliers, users or others.
How does a customer ‘opt-out’ of IEC promotional E-mail?
Our users are given the opportunity to opt-out of receiving promotional E-mail by clicking an “opt-out” link within the email. Promotional E-mail does not include E-mail necessary for our Site’s services.
