What data do we collect automatically and why? IEA’s website typically collects two kinds of information about you: information that you provide which personally identifies you (for example, by filling out our vendor application), and information that does not personally identify you. When you visit iea-corp.com, our web server automatically recognizes your domain name but not your e-mail address. We collect the domain name and monitor general site use and traffic patterns to improve our web site and the products and services we offer. IEA uses web server logs to collect data for metric purposes. Examples of the types of data collected on the logs are IP addresses, referral pages, date and time of site access, and page visited.
Do we collect personal information? IEA may request personally identifiable information from you in order to satisfy the underlying purpose of your accessing the site. Examples of personally identifiable information include names, e-mail addresses, and mailing addresses. We may use the information you provide us in order to contact you.
What security is provided? For any form you fill out to provide personal information (for example, the vendor application form or résumé form), IEA’s site will encrypt your information so that only appropriate personnel are able to decode your information. Note that most internet browsers also offer security alerts that permit you to determine whether your transmissions are protected.
When would we disclose your information? We do not rent, sell, or trade any personally identifiable information about you to third parties. In order to cooperate with legitimate governmental requests, subpoenas, or court orders, to protect IEA or to ensure the integrity and operation of IEA, IEA may access and disclose any information it considers necessary or appropriate under the circumstances.
What about children’s privacy? IEA asks children under 13 not to transmit any information to the site. We welcome the parent or guardian of a child under age 13 to use the site and provide any information, service, or product gained from the site to their child.
What about external links? For the convenience of our site visitors, IEA may provide links to third party web sites that are external to IEA. These web sites are not operated or controlled by IEA, and IEA is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such external sites.
