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 according to the decisions you make during the registration process or through subsequent user profile updates.


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 IDN 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 IDN.
If you choose to register for third-party services, we may need to send some information from your IDN 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. IDN 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.
