Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us.

Like most website operators, IAEE collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. IAEE's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how IAEE's visitors use its website. From time to time, IAEE may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

IAEE also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. IAEE does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to IAEE's websites choose to interact with IAEE in ways that require IAEE to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that IAEE gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with IAEE are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, IAEE collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with IAEE. IAEE does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Duration of storage

General and personal data will be kept by IAEE only as long as reasonably necessary taking into consideration its need to provide services and to comply with legal requirements under applicable laws. IAEE will retain general and personal data during a maximum period of five years if there is no specific legal requirement that mandates a different duration.
