Privacy Policy

Information We Collect and Use

You may provide personally identifiable information to us when you visit the Site.  If you voluntarily register with us, we will hold your personal information securely, and will only use that information for the purpose for which it was given. You may have to create a user name or password to register with us and log in to your account.  You are responsible for protecting your user name and password.  You may not share your user name or password with others or allow others to use them, and you must provide complete and accurate information to us at all times in the registration process.

We will not disclose your personal information to any third party, unless required to do so by law, regulation, law enforcement inquiries, court orders, subpoenas and similar requests, or when we otherwise believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary or appropriate in connection with any activity that violates the law or may expose us to liability.

You may also browse and access information on this Site without giving any personal identification.

To help make our Site more useful, and for statistical and diagnostic purposes, IARD collects the following non-personal information whenever you visit our Site:

  • Internet Protocol (“IP”) address
  • Internet domain server
  • Web browser profile
  • Date and time of Site visit and pages visited
  • Address of previous website if referred to our Site, including search engines and keyword searches used.

IARD and/or the host of its Site collects your IP address. An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. The IP address data that we collect does not contain any personally identifiable information about you and is used to administer our Site, to determine the numbers of different visitors to the Site and to gather broad demographic data.

The non-personally identifiable data that IARD collects is accessible by certain IARD personnel as well as certain third-party website designers and personnel involved with the third-party service that hosts the Site. IARD uses all non-personally identifiable data that it collects internally and together with its Site designer and host in order to improve IARD’s Site. The information is used, for example, to evaluate what portions of the Site are more popular than others, to determine from where visitors came to the Site, and to determine how many times particular pages of the Site were accessed in the aggregate. IARD personnel use the data to prepare reports regarding website activity as part of the process of maintaining and improving the Site.

IARD and/or the host of its Site uses “cookies.” Cookies are small text files that are placed on a visitor’s computer hard drive that, among other things, allow IARD and/or the host of its Site to record how many times a user or computers within a user’s network of computers has visited the Site, the number of times various pages of the Site have been accessed and other such information. You may disable receipt of cookies using features of your web browser that disable or turn off cookies. IARD does not use cookies to retrieve information that is unrelated to your visit to or your interaction with IARD’s Site.  Although you are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, rejecting a cookie may interfere with your ability to use certain features on the Site.
