Collection of Information
When you browse the IPOS Web site as a non-member, you are anonymous. IPOS does not collect personal information about any person that is not provided voluntarily. We track anonymous information, such as which pages were visited and for how long, on our server. We use this information solely to learn more about trends on the Web site, such as which web pages you viewed and how long you visited.
If you apply for membership, register for training or a conference, or request any other product or service, IPOS collects information from you such as your name, title, company, address, phone, fax, e-mail address and professional discipline/interest. This information is collected only if you give it voluntarily. Information provided to IPOS will be used internally in order to process your specific request and will not be sold or shared with outside parties. Your information may be used to send you IPOS publications, information relating to upcoming IPOS activities or important membership announcements. In addition, IPOS makes members’ contact information available to other members through the Members-only Web site. This information can only be accessed with a legitimate IPOS username and password; for this reason, we strongly urge you limit unauthorized access to your IPOS username and password. You may edit your contact information at any time through the Members-only Web site. If you have difficulty editing your information online, you may update it by calling or e-mailing IPOS headquarters at +1.434.293.5350 or email@example.com.

IPOS may occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as bulk mailing or publication printing. We provide those companies only with the information they need to complete to service they have been contracted to perform, and they are prohibited from using the information provided for any other purpose.
IPOS may disclose your information if we are required to do so by law or if such disclosure is necessary to comply with a legal order; defend IPOS or its employees, affiliates or partners; or protect the personal safety of IPOS, affiliates, partners, members or site users.
