IBVPA takes your privacy seriously. Please read the following Privacy Policy carefully to learn more about IBVPA’s use of your personal identifying information that IBVPA collect when you visit IBVPA’s official website at www.IBVPA.org (hereinafter referred to as: the “Website”). IBVPA reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time without notice to you. You are therefore responsible for regularly reviewing this Privacy Policy.

What this Privacy Policy covers

This Privacy Policy covers IBVPA’s treatment of personal identifying information that IBVPA collects when you are on the Website and when you use services on the Website. This Privacy Policy also covers IBVPA’s treatment of any personal identifying information that IBVPA’s business partners share with IBVPA unless otherwise stated.
This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of any companies or legal entities that IBVPA does not own or control or to any persons that IBVPA does not employ.

Information collection and use

IBVPA does not collect personal identifying information when you access the Website homepage and browse the Website without disclosing your personal data (except cookies; see below under “cookies”).

IBVPA collects personal identifying information when you register on the Website, when you use certain products or services on the Website and when you enter promotions, sweepstakes or similar services sponsored by IBVPA or its business partners. IBVPA may also receive personal identifying information from its business partners.

When you register IBVPA asks for your name, e-mail address, and some other personal information. Once you register with IBVPA and/or sign in to our products or services, you are not anonymous to IBVPA.

IBVPA also automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your Internet Protocol address (IP address), which identifies your computer, IBVPA’s cookies information and the page you requested.

IBVPA uses information collected for three general purposes: for technical administration of the Website, for research and development to achieve and maintain a high service level and for customer information (to customise the content you see, to fulfil your request for certain products and services and to contact you about specials and new products and services).

Information sharing and disclosure

IBVPA will not sell or rent your personal identifying information without your consent. IBVPA may send personal identifying information about you to third parties when:

  • IBVPA has your consent to share the information;
  • IBVPA needs to share your information to provide the product or service you have requested;
  • IBVPA needs to send the information to third parties who work on behalf of IBVPA to provide a product or service to you (unless otherwise stated so, these third parties do not have any rights to use the personal identifying information IBVPA provides to them beyond what is necessary to provide a product or service to you);
  • IBVPA responds to courts or authorities; or
  • IBVPA finds that your actions on the Website violate IBVPA Website Terms and Conditions of Use or any other
  • IBVPA guidelines or rules applicable for specific services.
  • IBVPA may set and access IBVPA’s cookies on your computer. A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, that is sent to your browser from a website’s computer and stored on your computer’s hard drive.
  • IBVPA uses its own cookies for number of purposes, mainly to:
    access your information when you “sign in”, so that we can provide you with customized content;
    keep track of preferences you specify while you are using IBVPA services.
    estimate and report our total audience size and traffic;
    conduct research and development to improve the Website contents and services and achieve and maintain a high service level.
  • IBVPA may allows third parties that are presenting promotions or researching users response to advertisement on some of our pages to set and access their own cookies on your computer. Third parties’ use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies and not this one.
