IAEI is committed to protecting
your privacy online. This statement discloses the information practices for the iaei.org website, including what type of information is gathered and tracked, how
the information is used, and with whom the information is shared.
You can travel through most of
our site without giving us any information about yourself. But sometimes we do
need information to provide services that you request, and this statement of
privacy explains data collection and use in those situations. Please read the
complete iaei.org privacy statement.

Like many other websites, iaei.org may use a standard technology called a "cookie" to collect
information about how you use the site. A cookie is a small data file that
certain websites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file
can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to track the pages
you've visited, but the only personal information a cookie can contain is
information you supply yourself. A cookie can't read data off your hard disk or
read cookie files created by other sites. Some parts of iaei.org may use
cookies to track user traffic patterns. We do this in order to determine the
usefulness of our website information to our users and to see how effective
our navigational structure is in helping users reach that information.
If you prefer not to receive
cookies while browsing our website, you can set your browser to warn you
before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to
its presence. You can also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your
browser, although you may not be able to take full advantage of iaei.org if you do so. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use/navigate through
many parts of our website.
In general, you can visit iaei.org without telling us who you are and without revealing any information
about yourself. There are times, however, when we may need information from
you. You may choose to give us personal information, such as your name, address, e-mail, or ID that may be needed, for example, to correspond with you,
to process an order or to provide you with a subscription. When you register,
or otherwise give us personal information, iaei.org does not sell personal information and will not share that
information with third parties without your permission, other than for the
limited exceptions listed below.

Except as set forth above, IAEI

conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on IAEI or

safety of users of IAEI, its websites, or the public. We do not sell your contact information.
Collecting your Personal Information
We will ask you when we need
information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us
to contact you. Generally, this information is requested when you are asked to
register for a seminar, registering for membership, or when purchasing and
registering IAEI products. Personal information collected by iaei.org often is
limited to e-mail address, language, country or location, but may include other
information when needed to provide a service you requested.
For example: If you choose to make
a purchase in the Shop area of the website, we will request personal
information such as: name, address, telephone number, credit card number and
shipping information. When you buy and install a new product, we may ask
you to register your purchase electronically. When you do, we keep this
registration information on file with any information you've already given us
on previous visits to our website. This is considered your personal profile.
Security of your Personal Information
IAEI.org strictly protects the
security of your personal information and honors your choices for its intended
use. We carefully protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or
disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
Your personal information is
never shared outside the company without your permission, except under
conditions explained above. Inside the company, data is stored in
password-controlled databases with limited access. Your information may be stored
and processed in the United States or any other country where IAEI, its
chapters, or divisions are located. IAEI acknowledges your trust and
is committed to protecting the information you provide us. To prevent
unauthorized access, maintain accuracy, and ensure proper use of information,
we have employed physical, electronic, and managerial processes to safeguard
and secure the information we collect online.
When you make a purchase from iaei.org, we use Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") encryption technology to
safeguard your credit card and other sensitive information while it is being
sent to us. The SSL encryption is designed to make the information unreadable
by anyone but us. This security measure is working when you see either the
symbol of an unbroken key or closed lock (depending on your browser) on the
bottom of your browser window.
You also have a significant role in protecting your information. Only you and limited authorized IAEI staff can both view and edit your personal information. Authorized IAEI officers can view a subset of your personal information to fulfill their responsibilities for IAEI sections, chapters and divisions. No one else may view or edit your personal information without knowing your ID and password, so do not share these with others.

to third party websites for your convenience and information. If you use these

control the content and are not responsible for the privacy practices of that
site. We suggest that you carefully review the privacy policies of each website

practices of those websites linked to iaei.org. These other sites may send
