This policy only covers websites maintained by IvyNet for our domestic operations. Also, this policy doesn’t apply to any other websites maintained by other companies or organizations to which we link. IvyNet is, therefore, not responsible for the content or activities provided on those websites.
What types of personal information do we collect about our online visitors?
Personal information is information that identifies you and can be used to contact you directly. We only collect personal information voluntarily given to us by our visitors. Generally, we don’t require you to give us personal information to access public areas of our website. Certain secure web areas, however, enable or require you to provide personal information online when you use specific features on our website. For example, we collect personal information from you when you:
- Apply for or obtain a IvyLocker product or service
- Ask to have a IvyNet representative contact you
- Ask to receive information about our products or services
- Purchase a membership subscription
- Participate in any IvyLocker promotion or survey
- Request customer or technical support
For example, this information may include:
- account or policy number
- credit card number
- telephone number
- email address, and
- postal or billing address
Additionally, we may also collect other types of information like your age or date of birth, gender, hobbies, and other preferences.
Once you join the service, you are able to add information to your Locker System.
What Information about Children do we Collect?
We don’t knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 18.
What Information We Collect Through Technology?
We collect information through technology to enhance our ability to serve you. For example, when you come to one of our websites, we collect your IP address. An IP address is often associated with the portal you used to enter the Internet, like your ISP (Internet service provider), company, association, or location. Standing alone, however, your IP address is not personally identifiable. At times, we also use IP addresses to study the frequency that our visitors visit various areas of our websites. We may combine this information with personal information.
Web beacons are small pieces of data that are embedded in images on the pages of websites and in our email communications. We also use these web beacons to analyze the traffic patterns, such as the frequency users visit various areas of our websites. These technical methods may involve transmitting information either directly to us or to another entity authorized by us to collect information on our behalf. We also use web beacons in HTML e-mails that we send our visitors to determine whether our visitors have opened those e-mails or clicked on links in those e-mails.
Do we use Network Advertisers?
How is your personal information used and shared?
Whatever the purpose may be, we will only collect information to the extent reasonably necessary to fulfill your requests and our legitimate business objectives, and personally identifiable information is not shared with any third party. We may also use and disclose your personal information to our affiliates and others for any purpose allowed by law.
What are Some IvyNet Online Activities and Updates?
For example, we use your personal information to:
- authenticate your identity
- provide you with online planning tools
- respond to service information requests
- send you customer newsletters and updates
- provide you with additional materials that may be of interest
Can we Make Disclosures Required By Law and Disclosures to Help Protect the Security and Safety of Our Websites and Others?
What choices do you have about the collection, use, and sharing of your personal information?
We don’t share our customer’s personal information with unaffiliated third parties for their own direct marketing purposes.
If you signed up to receive newsletters or other e-mail messages from us, you can opt-out any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the message. You may also choose to opt-out from receiving marketing materials from us by sending a request to firstname.lastname@example.org with Opt Out in the subject line.
IvyLocker® resides and lives in a secure socket layer (HTTPS) tunnel.
IvyLocker® stores your information on a Firewall-protected server and can only be accessed using your unique username and password.
We recommend periodically changing your password.
Safety of Your Information.
IvyLocker® uses the same encryption technology used by Banks. This means your information is protected from any unauthorized access. IvyLocker ‘s encryption approach shields your personal information from prying eyes while you are putting in your information into an IvyLocker®. Your information is also encrypted; meaning scrambled and simply not readable while resting in your locker.
What kinds of security measures do we take to safeguard your personal information?
The security and confidentiality of your information is extremely important to us. That’s why we have technical, administrative, and physical security measures in place to protect your personal information from unauthorized access and improper use. For example, the areas of our website that enable or require you to submit personal information online use encryption to protect that information. We also review our security procedures periodically to consider appropriate new technology and updated methods. But, despite our reasonable efforts, no security measure is ever perfect or impenetrable.
