1. What Information Do We Collect and Why?

  • IP Addresses
    We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems, to administer our Web site, and to gather demographic information. When you visit our site, we recognize only your domain name and not your e-mail address. We will see your e-mail address only if you give it to us by filling out a form or by sending us an e-mail message.

  • Cookies
    We use cookies to deliver personalized content, to save you having to re-enter your password repeatedly, to keep track of your shopping cart, and to tailor our information offerings to how you and others use the site.

  • User Registration
    If you choose to register, we can send you requested information or products, other product information, news, or promotions.

  • E-mail Addresses
    If you choose to give us your e-mail address, we will communicate with you via e-mail. We do not share your e-mail address with others outside the itelligence group of companies. You can choose not to receive any more e-mail at any time.

    Depending on how your e-mail application is set up, information about you may be transmitted automatically when you send e-mail to itelligence.

    If you choose to register for third-party services, we may need to send some information from your registration to the service provider, possibly including your e-mail address -- but only if your requested service cannot be provided otherwise.

  • Shopping or Event Registration
    Our site includes order forms that you fill out to request information, products, and services. These forms collect your financial information, such as your banking details or credit card numbers. itelligence promises to use any financial information that you submit solely for billing and payment purposes for that special transaction.

  • Online Surveys
    Our surveys may ask you for demographic information, such as postal codes or your industry sector. If the online survey collects contact data, we may use that data to send you further information only if we specifically asked for your permission in the survey. You are free to retract any permission you gave.

2. Links to Other Sites

This EU Data Privacy Policy (the Policy) sets forth the privacy principles (the Principles) that itelligence follows with respect to Personal Information transferred between the European Economic Area (which includes the member states of the European Union) and the United States. itelligence complies with the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework and has certified its adherence to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles that can be found under http://www.export.gov/safeharbor.

Where itelligence collects Personal Information directly from an individual, it will inform the individuals to whom the information pertains about the purposes of such collection and usage, how to contact us, the types of third parties with whom we share Personal Information (if applicable), and any ways that individuals may limit the use and sharing of such information. This notice will be provided when individuals are first asked to provide Personal Information to itelligence or as soon thereafter as is practicable.

Choice. itelligence will offer an individual the opportunity to choose (opt out) whether Personal Information is (a) to be disclosed to a non-agent third party or (b) to be used for a purpose that is incompatible with the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. Individuals will be provided with clear and conspicuous, readily available, and affordable mechanisms to choose.

If itelligence discloses Personal Information to an agent third party, itelligence will either (i) ensure that the third party is subject to the safe harbor principles or (ii) require the third party by contract to provide the same level of protection as required by the safe harbor principles.

Security. itelligence will take reasonable precautions to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
