Collection of your Personal Information
ICOM collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address, or telephone number through forms that you complete such as contact forms, applications, and information requests. ICOM also collects anonymous demographic information that is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, and gender.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by ICOM. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times, and referring website addresses. This information is used by ICOM for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the ICOM website.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through ICOM blog/news comments, this information may be collected and used by others. ICOM does not read any of your private online communications.
ICOM encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from ICOM so that you can understand how those websites collect, use, and share your information. ICOM is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the ICOM family of websites.
Use of your Personal Information
ICOM collects and uses your personal information to operate the ICOM website and deliver the services you have requested. ICOM also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other academic services or offerings available at ICOM. ICOM may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current academic services or programs that may be offered.
ICOM does not sell, rent, or lease its contact lists to third parties. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, ICOM may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, or provide customer support. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to ICOM, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
ICOM does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
ICOM may track of the websites and pages our visitors view in order to determine what content is the most popular. This data may be used to deliver improved and customized content and advertising within ICOM to visitors whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
ICOM websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if permitted or required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on ICOM or the website; (b) to investigate or remedy potential violations of our policies; (c) to protect and defend the rights or property of ICOM; and, (d) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of ICOM or the public.
The ICOM website may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you register with ICOM site or services like access to the library databases or registering for parking online, a cookie helps ICOM to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as mailing address or email address.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer.
Security of your Personal Information
ICOM secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. ICOM secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
