Security & Privacy Policy

To help you better understand the personal information we gather and the practices we employ, IIMPACT has developed a Privacy Policy that covers the following areas:

  • Information collected
  • Use and disclosure of information
  • Accessing and updating information about you
  • Security

This Privacy Policy applies to your use of the website operated under the domain names www.iimpact.net  (the “IIMPACTWebsite”) and the services provided by IIMPACT.

Where this Privacy Policy refers to your “personal information”, it means information about you (as an individual) from which your identity is apparent, or can reasonably be ascertained. Your name and e-mail address are examples of personal information.

Information collected

You can visit the IIMPACT Website and find out about our products and services without giving us any information about yourself. We may record certain non-personal information, such as your server address, domain name, the date and time of your visit and any pages viewed. That information will only be used for statistical and website administration purposes. To maintain visitor anonymity, we will not associate that information with records containing personal information unless you have consented for us to do so.

When you register to use IIMPACT, we may require your name, phone number, e-mail address and mailing address. We will also record any changes you make to this information in the User Details section of the IIMPACT Website. We require this information in order to verify your identity, to contact you and to provide our services to you. Upon registration, we will provide you with a usercode and password to use the IIMPACT Website.

If you choose to make an online donation via credit card or any other payment method, we will collect any personal information that is necessary for us to process your payment, to contact you and to perform our services. We will not make any other use of that information.

When you make a donation to IIMPACT, we may ask for confirmation of some of the details you have provided on registration, as well as information about the transaction, including the amount and relevant credit card or bank account information.

The IIMPACT Website may contain links to web sites operated by third parties and other websites may contain links to the IIMPACT Website (“Linked Websites”). If the operators of those Linked Websites collect information about you, we may have access to that information as part of our arrangements with those third parties. Linked Websites should contain their own privacy statements and the operators of Linked Websites are responsible for informing you about their own privacy practices.

We may also collect personal information from you if you knowingly provide it to us, for example by sending us an e-mail or providing feedback.

Use and disclosure of information

We will not use or disclose (share, sell or divulge) any of your personal information to third parties unless we have informed you, have been authorised by you, or are required or authorised to do so by law.

Purposes for which we may exchange personal information with third parties include to verify your identity, to process a payment and to confirm receipt of payment.

We may also use your personal information:

  • for purposes related to our research, planning, program development and management;
  • for purposes connected with the operation, administration, development or enhancement of the our services and the IIMPACT Website; and
  • where we suspect that fraud or unlawful activity has been, is being or may be engaged in.

We may provide personal information about you to our service providers who assist us in providing our services and the IIMPACT Website. We will only disclose your personal information to those third party service providers on a confidential basis so that the service provider can effectively provide those services.

In particular, when processing credit card transactions, we will utilise systems that assist in minimising the risk of credit card fraud. Personal information that we collect about you, including your credit card details, demographic information, such as your address and information about the purchases you have conducted through this website, is required to provide a basis for credit card fraud risk analysis

If you do not provide us with:

  • your personal information, and
  • your consent to this Privacy Policy;

then we will not be able to process your registration and / or payment transactions.

We use and disclose aggregated non-personally identifying information as part of our process of constantly improving our services.

Advertising

We use third-party advertising companies (such as Google AdWords) to serve ads on our web site and other web sites. These companies may use cookies to collect information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other web sites. They use this information to measure advertising effectiveness and to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. We may also email you with information about our new services and service features from time to time, but will always offer you the ability to ‘opt out’ of future mailings by clicking on an ‘unsubscribe’ link.  We may use third party service providers to distribute such email communications.

Accessing and updating information about you

You can access and update your registration information the User Details section of the IIMPACT  Website at any time once you have provided your usercode and password. If you need to access or correct any other personal information we hold about you and are unable to do so in the User Details section, please contact us using the “Contact Us” information on the IIMPACT Website.

Security

IIMPACT uses several mechanisms to protect the security and integrity of your personal information:

  • All your payments to IIMPACT are conducted in ‘secure sessions’ using the financial industry’s Secure Socket Layer (SSL) standards with 128-bit encryption. You should check that your browser is compatible with SSL encryption. This is often indicated by a ‘closed lock’ icon at the bottom of your screen.
  • Your username and password are essential for you to access your user details. For your own protection, IIMPACT requires you to keep these confidential and encourages you to change your password regularly.
    Please ensure you never provide your Username and/or password to anyone in response to email requests. You will never be asked by IIMPACT to disclose such information legitimately.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as completely secure. So while we strive to protect such information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Once your personal information comes into our possession, we will take reasonable steps to protect that information from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
