IVCLA recognizes the importance of privacy to visitors of our Web site. This privacy policy explains what type of information is collected from you when you visit our Web site and how that information may be used.

Gathering of Information
IVCLA collects personally-identifying information (such as your name, e-mail address, address and telephone number) from the IVCLA Web site only if you choose to provide that information to us. IVCLA asks visitors to provide certain personal information when they wish to contact IVCLA through the Web site.

Like all other Web sites, IVCLA’s Web server automatically creates log files to track how the Web site is used. These "access logs" allow us to make our site more useful to our visitors. The access logs do NOT record a visitor's name, address, phone number or any other personally-identifying information. Rather, they contain some or all of the following information:

The Internet Protocol Address (IP Address) of the machine which accessed our Web site.

  • The date of the visit.
  • The time of the visit.
  • The path taken through our Web site.
  • The browser being used.
  • A list of files downloaded or viewed.
  • Any errors encountered.

Please note: the IVCLA Web site does not use Cookies to track user information.

Use of Information
The use of personally-identifying information is limited to responding to user e-mails and subsequent contact via phone, mail, fax or other communications specifically requested by the visitor. Personally-identifying information collected by IVCLA is not provided to outside parties.

IVCLA may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or if it believes that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law or with legal process, (b) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the IVCLA Web site, or (c) protect the personal safety or property of IVCLA Web site users, the public or IVCLA and its employees.

If you do not want your personally-identifying information to be collected or used for any of these purposes, you can simply contact IVCLA directly by phone, mail or fax.

IVCLA uses non-identifying aggregate information to analyze use of and better design the IVCLA Web site and to share with third parties in aggregate form only as appropriate. For example, we may tell a third party that a certain number of users accessed a particular link on our Web site. However, we will not disclose any information that could be used to identify those users.

Children
If you are under 13 years of age, please do not send any information about yourself, including your name, address or e-mail address. If we discover that we have collected any personally-identifying information from a child under the age of 13, we will remove that information from our database as soon as possible.

13 -18: Unless otherwise specified, you must be a least 18 years old in order to participate in any online contests. Visitors between the ages of 13 and 18 must obtain permission from their parents or guardians before sending any personally-identifying information.

Acceptance of Privacy Policy Terms
IVCLA reserves the right to change this policy. Any changes to this policy will be posted to this page as soon as reasonably possible, so please check this page periodically. Use of the IVCLA Web site constitutes consent to any policy then in effect.

If you have any questions or comments concerning our privacy policy, please contact us via e-mail at info@ivcla.org or you may call or write to

Links to other Sites
It is important to note that the IVCLA Web site contains links to other sites that may not follow the same privacy policies as the IVCLA Web site. For instance, clicking on a link within the Additional Information or content area may take you to an entirely different site. These sites may use cookies, collect data, and use the data in ways that IVCLA would not. IVCLA is not responsible for the privacy practices or any information or materials on these other sites. Please visit these sites if you wish to review their privacy policies.
