Icon Collective is deeply committed to protecting your privacy online. Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated.
What personally identifiable information does Icon Collective collect from me?
Icon Collective collects information in different ways from parts of our Web sites. Some information is gathered if you register with us. During registration, Icon Collective may ask for personal information such as your name, email address, gender, zip/postal code, occupation, industry and personal interests.
What are cookies and how does Icon Collective use them?
- Remind us of who you are and to access your information (stored on our computers) in order to deliver to you a better and more personalized service. For example, a cookie is set when you register or “Sign In” and is modified when you “Sign Out” of our services.
- Automate certain areas of the Icon Collective web sites or online forms.
- Estimate our audience size. Each browser accessing the Icon Collective website is given a unique cookie which is then used to determine the extent of repeat usage, usage by a registered user versus by an unregistered user, and to help target advertisements based on user interests and behavior.
- Measure certain traffic patterns, which areas of the Icon Collective web site you have visited, and your visiting patterns in the aggregate. We use this research to understand our users’ habits so that we can make each new experience on the Icon Collective website better. We may use this information to better personalize the content, and promotions that you and other users will see on our sites.
In some cases, Icon Collective may collect information about you that is not personally identifiable. Such information may be gathered by the Internet browser and type of operating system you are using, and via the domain name of the web site that linked you to our site. When you view one of our web sites, we may store information from time to time on your computer. These “cookies” allow us to tailor a website or advertisement to better match your interests and preferences. With most Internet browsers you can block, receive a warning or erase all “cookies” from your hard drive. Please refer to your browser instructions or Help screen to learn more about these functions.
You also have choices with respect to cookies. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. Please refer to your browser’s help for further information about your options for controlling or monitoring cookies.
How does Icon Collective use my information?
Icon Collective’s primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you, the user, with a customized experience on our Websites. This includes personalization services, interactive communications, which are completely free to you.
Icon Collective does research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior based on the information provided to us upon registration, or from our server log files. We do this to better understand and serve our users. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis.
With whom does Icon Collective share my information?
Icon Collective will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission. Icon Collective may disclose account information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating Icon Collective’s Terms of Service or may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) Icon Collective’s rights or property, other Icon Collective users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. Icon Collective may disclose or access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it and for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain, service, and improve our products and services.
Icon Collective does not sell or rent user information to anyone. We will notify you at the time of data collection or transfer if your data will be shared with a third party and you will always have the option of not permitting the transfer. If you do not wish to allow your data to be shared, you can choose not to use a particular service or not to participate in certain promotions or contests.
What else should I know about my privacy?
Keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information- for example on message boards, through email, or in instant message or chat areas – that this information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Icon Collective cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you’re online.
Third party vendors, including Google, show Icon Collective ads on sites on the internet based on a user’s prior visits to the Icon Collective website.
Do we sell any of your personal information?
Icon Collective does NOT and will not sell your personal information in exchange for money. However, we may share information with third party websites and social media platforms about visitors to this Website for purposes of targeting advertisements of our products and services to you when you visit other websites. Other than this sole exception, we do not and will not disclose your personal information to any third party in exchange for monetary or other valuable consideration. We do not at any point or under any circumstance sell or otherwise trade the personal information of any minors.
- Compile data about site traffic to offer a better Website experience
- Understand and save visitor preferences for future visits
Do Not Track (DNT) is a privacy preference that users can set if they do not want web services to collect information about their online activity. However, there is currently no universal standard for sending and receiving DNT signals. Due to this lack of universal standard, it would be impossible for us to promise that we comply with all known and unknown DNT standards.
Therefore, we do not respond to DNT signals or other mechanisms that provide a choice regarding the collection of personal information about activities over time and across different Web sites or online services. If a universal standard for DNT becomes available, we may revisit our DNT Policy.
Children under the age of 16
Our Website is not intended for children under 16 years of age. No one under age 16 may provide any personal information on the Website. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 16. If you are under 16, do not use or provide any information on this Website. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 16 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 16, please contact us at the email address below.
How we protect the information that we collect
The protection of the information that we collect about visitors to this Website is of the utmost importance to us and we take every reasonable measure to ensure that protection, including:
- We keep automatically collected data and voluntarily collected data separate at all times.
- We use internal encryption on all data stores that house voluntarily captured data.
- We use commercially reasonable tools and techniques to protect against unauthorized access to our systems.
- We restrict access to private information to those who need such access in the course of their duties for us.
