Submitting personal information is voluntary. When you voluntarily submit information, it constitutes your consent to the use of the information for the purposes stated at the time of collection. See the Privacy Act of 1974 for more information on your rights under the Privacy Act. Except for the purposes described below, no other attempts are made to identify individual users while on IONEER website. Here is how we handle information about your visit to our website:
Information collected and stored automatically
IONEER web servers automatically collect and save the default information customarily logged by web server software. Specifically, the date and time, the originating IP address, the object requested, and the completion status of the request is collected and saved for each http request received by the server. We also use an authorized Google Analytics agent to collect comparable information on our behalf.
On a monthly or more-frequent basis, we review this information to determine the traffic through the servers in hits, the number of pages served, and the level of demand for pages of interest. Analysis of this information may also help identify problem areas of the website or to improve overall service. Information is retained as long as necessary to perform useful analysis.
For site security purposes and to ensure that IONEER web services remain available to all users, IONEER monitors network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information or otherwise cause damage. Unauthorized attempts to upload information or change information on this service are strictly prohibited and subject to prosecution under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 and Title 18 U.S.C. Sec.1001 and 1030. Information also may be used for authorized law enforcement investigations.
You may control permissions for cookies on this or any other website by adjusting your individual browser settings for customized privacy protection.
Session cookies are also known as memory-resident cookies or Tier 1 session cookies. These cookies are not stored on your computer’s hard drive, and are removed when you complete your session or exit the site. We use session cookies for some applications to improve their usability and ensure session integrity. No personal information is gathered.
Persistent cookies remain on your computer’s hard drive after you complete an activity. We use “Tier 2” persistent cookies to help us recognize new and returning visitors, but no personally identifiable information is gathered. If you block a persistent cookie, you are not prevented from using IONEER website in any way.
We also use persistent cookies to enable the Google Analytics program to measure how new and returning visitors use IONEER website over time.
If you choose to provide us with personal information in email, we use that information to respond to your message and to help us get you the information you have requested. We do not collect personal information for any purpose other than to respond to you. We do not store any personal information independent of the email message, create individual profiles with the information you provide, or give it to any other private organizations. We do not collect information for commercial marketing.
Consent to the Use of Third Party Providers
We may contract with third parties to provide various website-related services to IONEER on an outsourced basis rather than performing the services ourselves. By visiting and continuing to use and access this website, you consent to IONEER providing both your personal information and non-personally identifiable information to these third party providers for the purpose of enabling the third party provider to provide these services to IONEER. In addition, you consent to the collection, maintenance, and processing of your personal information and non-personal information by IONEER and these third party providers.
We will use reasonable security measures on the website to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. While there is no such thing as “perfect security” on the internet, we will take reasonable steps to insure the safety of your personal information and non-personally identifiable information.
