INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT
We may obtain information about you in various ways, such as through our activities, events, services and Sites, registration forms, written or oral consent either whether in person or electronically. The type of information we collect includes:
- contact information (such as name, postal and email address, telephone number, or photo);
- login credentials to the Sites (if applicable); and
- other personal information you affirmatively provide to us, such as through emails you send us or your business card.
We do not collect identifying information from users of the public areas of the Sites, except to the extent that information may be voluntarily provided by a user by sending IFTA an email in order to receive responses or services from IFTA. As you browse the Sites, advertising “cookies” may be placed on your computer so that we can better understand your interests. This enables us to present you with retargeting advertising on other sites based on your previous interaction with the Sites. If you choose to use the Sites without blocking or disabling cookies, you agree to our use of these cookies. The cookies last up to one year, but if you do not agree to the use of these cookies, then you can block or disable them using your browser settings or you may opt out of such targeted advertising by visiting http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. All information collected in any private area of the Sites shall be subject to the mutually agreed upon terms between IFTA and the user.
INFORMATION FROM OTHER SOURCES
We may receive information about you, including personal information, from third parties to which you have previously consented to provide information, and publicly available sources to which you have provided information, and we may combine or transfer such information with other personal information we maintain about you. We may also use third-party web analytics services on our Sites, such as Google Analytics, to assist us to analyze how visitors use the Sites. The information obtained for this purpose (including your IP address and other information collected by automated means) will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers.

HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We minimize the amount of data we collect and retain. Any information which we may collect will be used for a specific purpose. For example, we may use the information described above to:
- provide products and services to you;
- respond to your inquiries;
- send you promotional materials and newsletters;
- create and manage your account (if applicable);
- operate, evaluate and improve our events, activities, services or the Sites; and
We also may use the information in other ways for which we (or other third parties) provide specific notice at the time of collection.
INFORMATION WE SHARE
We do not sell our information to third-party organizations, but we reserve the right to do so. We may share contact information with third-party service providers (e.g., payment processing and data storage and processing facilities) who perform services on our behalf based on our instructions. We do not authorize these service providers to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or comply with legal requirements. Information may also be used to offer the services of third parties. In all such instances, we limit the personal information provided to these service providers to that which is reasonably necessary for them to perform their functions.
Additionally, we may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law or legal process, (ii) to law enforcement authorities or other government entities based on a lawful disclosure request, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent harm or financial loss, or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual fraudulent or illegal activity. We reserve the right to transfer personal information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (including in the event of a reorganization, spin-off, dissolution, or liquidation).
YOUR RIGHTS TO YOUR DATA
HOW WE PROTECT PERSONAL INFORMATION
We maintain administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed to protect personal information against accidental, unlawful, or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure, or use. Please note, however, that no data security measures can be guaranteed to be completely effective. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any personal information or other information. You transmit personal information to us at your own risk.
Our Events and Sites are not directed to children and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children without obtaining parental consent.
We will retain personal information for as long as needed to provide services to you, subject to any withdrawal of consent by you and our compliance with this Policy. We may further retain and use this personal information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
