What information does ITAC collect and how is that information used?

The ITAC web site automatically collects information about your visit. This information – such as the type of browser and Internet service you use – does not identify you personally. We use this information for our own internal analysis and to make the ITAC site more useful and interesting to you and other visitors.

We obtain personal identifiable information about you only if you provide it to us. For example, if you sign up to receive news from ITAC, we use the information you provide – your name, email address, etc. – only for that purpose. We do not sell or rent your personal information to any third parties.

When you send us an email, we use your email address to send you a reply.

Does ITAC use cookies or other technology?

A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a Web site that is saved on your hard drive. It holds information the site may need to personalize your experience (such as rotating images on the home page of the ITAC site). Cookies are also used to gather statistical data, such as which pages are visited. None of this, however, is associated with you as an individual.
Our web site also uses other technologies to count visitors and the pages they visit. This information, which does not identify you personally, helps ITAC understand how visitors use our site.

Does ITAC share the information that I have provided?

ITAC may share personal information with third parties in limited circumstances. For example, we may release personal information to a third party to respond to your email. From time to time, we may be required to provide personal information in response to a valid court order, subpoena, government investigation, or as otherwise required by law. We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful. We may release certain personal information when we believe that such release is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property, and safety of others and ourselves.

Does ITAC collect information from children?

The ITAC site is not intended for children under the age of 13, and ITAC does not knowingly collect personal information from children under thirteen.

How does ITAC secure my personal information?

We employ physical, electronic and procedural controls and we regularly adapt these controls to respond to changing requirements and advances in technology.

Will this privacy policy change?

ITAC may add new features or implement new technology to improve the site and reserves the right to change this policy at any time. If you use our Web site, you agree that we may notify you of changes to our privacy policy by updating our Web site.
