Like most websites, IDEA ELC collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. IDEA ELC’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how IDEA ELC’s visitors use its website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to IDEA ELC’s websites choose to interact with IDEA ELC in ways that require IDEA ELC to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that IDEA ELC gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. IDEA ELC collects such information only in so far as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with IDEA ELC. IDEA ELC does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
IDEA ELC may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, IDEA ELC may monitor the most popular pages on the site to help identify spam. However, IDEA ELC does not disclose personally-identifying information.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
IDEA ELC discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on IDEA ELC’s behalf or to provide services available at IDEA ELC’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. IDEA ELC will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, and affiliated organizations, as described above, IDEA ELC discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when IDEA ELC believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of IDEA ELC, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of IDEA ELC website and have supplied your email address, IDEA ELC may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with IDEA ELC and our services. We primarily use our various blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. IDEA ELC takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
