IAS is committed to maintaining the privacy of your personal information. The information practices for our web site are set forth below. IAS does not collect, store, or use information obtained through this web site, except as described below.
Information We Collect and Store When You Visit the Web Site
IAS automatically collects and stores information about your Internet connection when you visit our web site. This information includes the following:
- the date and time that you access our site
- the pages that you visit
- if you linked to the web site from another web site, the address of that web site
- the type of browser (for example, Internet Explorer 6.0) used to access our site
- the IP (Internet Protocol) address (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web) from which you access
- the actions that you tried to perform on our site (for example, execute a calculation) and whether or not that action was successful.
Information We Collect and Store When You Send an E-mail or Register to use the IAS web site
Where and when you provide your name and other personal information, IAS will use and maintain the information solely to process your request or inquiry. Outside access to User information is subject to a unique user ID and password, and IAS uses numerous security measures in addition, to protect access from unauthorized outside parties. IAS employees will see the information in the course of their official duties. In limited circumstances, such as requests from the Congress or pursuant to a court order, we may be required by law to disclose information you submit.
If you choose to give us feedback on the web site via electronic mail, you may be asked for identification information such as your Username, name, or address and may have the option of providing other information,.
Please note that e-mail is not necessarily secure against interception, and that e-mail features in this web site are not encrypted. If your communication is very sensitive, or includes personal information, you might want to send it by postal mail instead of e-mail.
How We Use the Information
IAS uses the information--both the information that is collected automatically and the additional information that you may provide—to service your account, to measure the volume of requests for specific web site pages, to improve the web site, and to be responsive to user needs and inquiries. IAS may use the IP address information to monitor unusually heavy activity from a single address.
Although questions, comments, and other communications that we receive generally are not retained as permanent records, please note that it is possible that any mail--electronic or paper--that we receive could become part of the permanent record of IAS, if the mail is part of materials that are scheduled for permanent retention.
Security of the Web Site
For the security of our site and to ensure that the site remains available to all users, IAS employs software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.
