Personally Identifiable Information

Personally identifiable information can only be collected when you provide it. IBA collects personally identifiable information about you during the registration process for the Service. Currently, the personally identifiable information collected during the Service registration process is limited to name and e-mail address. After registering, you may also choose to provide personally identifiable information in the course of using the Service. For example, you may provide your name and address for a purchase; or your e-mail address in response to a promotion on the Service. You are required to provide the personally identifiable information requested during the registration process in order to subscribe to the Service. You may also be required to provide personally identifiable information to receive other products or services. However, you always have the option to refuse to provide the requested personally identifiable information, but this will prevent you from being able to register for the Service and may prevent you from obtaining other desired products or services.

IBA will not sell, rent, or make your personally identifiable information available to a third party without your consent. You agree that IBA may disclose personally identifiable information as described below:

- When you provide your consent (e.g., through this Privacy Statement);

- As necessary to maintain/operate the Service, or to provide you with a product or service you've requested (subject to agreements of confidentiality and restrictions on use by the other company);

- As needed to enforce the IBA web site Terms and Conditions, or otherwise protect the rights/interests of IBA, users, or any third party;

- When we have a good faith belief that the law or any legal process requires disclosure; or

- If a company acquires all or substantially all of IBA's assets or in a merger or acquisition, but only if such company agrees to abide by this Privacy Statement.


Non-personally Identifiable Information

IBA also collects non-personally identifiable information, such as zip code, and country of residence, during the Service registration process and throughout your use of IBA. You are required to provide the requested demographic information in order to register for the Service. This type of information, while it may provide a general profile of a user, does not allow IBA to identify you personally (e.g., by knowing your zip code or that you live in the U.S., we cannot contact or identify you personally). IBA uses this information to get a general idea of who is using the Service, how they are using it, and to support marketing initiatives that keep the base IBA service free. IBA and its partners, analyze non-personally identifiable information to determine which content partner channels or other aspects of the Service are popular and which are not, to tailor our users' visit to the IBA website and use of the Service, and to introduce users to new IBA channels that may interest them. IBA also uses this information to generate statistical reports we share with strategic partners, advertisers, and content providers, including channel operators, but again, this information is made up of anonymous statistical data.

Collection of Non-personally Identifiable Information

IBA may track your domain name, which typically identifies your Internet Service Provider, or IP address, a number recorded by our servers that is used to identify your computer, to help gather and track non-personally identifiable information. We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the IBA website, track users' movement, and gather broad demographic information about your use of the Service. Neither IP addresses or domain names are linked to personally identifiable information.

IBA and its content partners may also utilize "cookie" technology in connection with the Service. A cookie is a small amount of data sent to your browser and stored on your computer's hard drive, your handheld device, or on the Service for record keeping purposes. Cookies are used, among other things, to automatically remind us who you are when you return to the IBA website and to generally help improve the functionality of the IBA website and the Service. A cookie also allows us to store and access your account preferences and to customize your web space. For example, we use cookies for marketing purposes to make sure that the content and advertising sent to you is specific to your interests and demographics. If you do not wish to have cookies placed on your personal computer, you can disable cookies through your Internet browser. However, disabling cookies will prevent you from fully experiencing the Service and accessing most, if not all, of the IBA website.

Links to Third Party Web Sites

The Service makes it possible for our Content Partners to create "channels" through which you may access an incredible variety of content, applications, and services, and in doing so exchange information with these Content Partners. This Privacy Statement does not govern any exchange of information between you and any Content Partner. IBA does not monitor, and is not responsible for, the privacy and data use policies of its Content Partners. We recommend you review their policies (likely to be found on their web sites) prior to accessing, but especially before sharing any personally identifiable information. Similarly, this Privacy Statement does not govern the privacy practices of any third party web site to which you might link from the IBA website. While IBA does not knowingly collect or use personally identifiable information exchanged between you and any Content Partner, we may track general use data, such as the sequence in which you view portions of a channel (sometimes called "click-streams") and other non-personal information. This information is used to improve the Service and may also be shared with Content Partners to help them improve their content and services.


Protecting client privacy and personal information is a top priority. We make significant efforts to ensure the privacy of all personally identifiable information you provide to us. Access to all user information is restricted. Only employees whose jobs require accessing user information are granted database access or administrator level accounts on servers that contain such information. All servers containing user information are kept behind locked doors in secure data centers and require a secure login to access them remotely.
IBA uses password protection, industry standard network encryption (128-bit SSL), access logs, and system monitoring to safeguard the confidentiality of all user information. In addition, IBA reviews its security procedures on a semi-annual basis. Nonetheless, due to the inherent nature of the Internet and related technology, we do not guarantee the protection of information under our control against loss, misuse or alteration.

Notification of Changes

Your personally identifiable information is subject to the Privacy Statement in place at the time you submit such information. IBA may modify this Privacy Statement from time to time, but these modifications will only apply to information submitted after notice of the change has been given. Typically, we will post notice of a change on the IBA website. If we substantially change our Privacy Statement as it relates to your personally identifiable information, we will notify you by e-mail using the e-mail address we have on file, so it's important to keep this information current. If at any point we would like to use personally identifiable information you previously submitted in a manner inconsistent with the applicable Privacy Statement, we will seek your approval.
