This notice applies to all information collected from or submitted through IMS ExpertServices.
We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
We don’t share your personal information without your prior permission with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
Our website contains links to other websites operated by third parties that we do not control. We are not responsible for the operation, content or the privacy practices or policies of any such third party websites. These other sites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. We encourage you to review their privacy policies.
The Information We Collect
Like most website operators, IMS collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, Internet Protocol address, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. IMS’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use our website. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our website.
We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. We do not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and do not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that we use and disclose personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to IMS ExpertServices’ website choose to interact with it in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction, activity or service. In each case, we collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction. When you send us email or other communications, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our services. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. All visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
IMS may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, we may monitor the most popular pages on the site. We may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, we do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
IMS ExpertServices discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide services available at our websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using our websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. IMS will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, IMS discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect our property or rights, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an IMS website and have supplied your email address, IMS 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 IMS and our products. 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. IMS takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information. Your own efforts to protect against unauthorized access play an important role in protecting the security of your personal information. You should always follow log out and sign off procedures when made available.
