Privacy Policy

It is IdeaVisionAction’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, IdeaVisionAction collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. IdeaVisionAction’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how IdeaVisionAction’s visitors use its website. From time to time, IdeaVisionAction may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

IdeaVisionAction also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on IdeaVisionAction blog. IdeaVisionAction only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to IdeaVisionAction’s website choose to interact with IdeaVisionAction in ways that require IdeaVisionAction to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that IdeaVisionAction gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our newsletter to provide their first name and email address. In each case, IdeaVisionAction collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with IdeaVisionAction. IdeaVisionAction does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

IdeaVisionAction may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, IdeaVisionAction may monitor the most popular posts on the IdeaVisionAction blog. IdeaVisionAction may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, IdeaVisionAction does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

IdeaVisionAction discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on IdeaVisionAction’s behalf or to provide services available at IdeaVisionAction’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using IdeaVisionAction’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. IdeaVisionAction will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, IdeaVisionAction discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when IdeaVisionAction believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of IdeaVisionAction, third parties or the public at large. If you have signed up to the IdeaVisionAction newsletter and have supplied your email address, IdeaVisionAction will periodically send you an email newsletter to communicate you about its content, solicit your feedback, and promote recommended products published by IdeaVisionAction and/or third parties. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. IdeaVisionAction takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
