Collection of your Personal Information
When you provide personally identifiable information through our Website, mobile app or blogs (collectively, the “Website”), iDEA collects certain personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. iDEA also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.
There is also non-personally identifiable information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by iDEA. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Website addresses. This information is used by iDEA for the operation of our Website, i.e., to maintain quality of the Website, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Website.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through any features of the Website that are publicly viewable, this information may be collected and used by others. iDEA encourages you to review the privacy policies of websites you choose to link to or navigate from iDEA so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. iDEA is not responsible for the privacy policies or other content on websites outside of the Website.
