Sensitive personal information is collected only to facilitate our financial service providers' credit decisions and will be shared with them only with your permission. Credit card information and sensitive personal data are not used for any other purpose by our financial services providers or iRescue™ and will not be kept longer than necessary for providing the services, unless you ask us to retain your credit card information for future purchases.
Personal data collected online may also be combined with information you provide iRescue™ through other sources such as product registration, call centers or public events such as trade shows or seminars.
Personal data given to iRescue™ may be transferred across state and country borders for the purposes of data consolidation, storage and simplified customer information management.
Non-personal data is aggregated for reporting about iRescue™ website usability, performance and effectiveness. It is used to improve the customer experience, usability and site content.
With Whome We Share Your Information
iRescue™ will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to others. iRescue™ will not share your personal information with third parties except in responding to your requests for products or services. Your permission will be requested when you submit your information. iRescue™ shares customer information across iRescue™-owned business entities and companies working on our behalf, but only as described above in the section entitled: How we use your information.
iRescue™ contracts with third-party service providers and organizations to deliver complete products, programs, services and customer solutions described above in the section entitled: How we use your information. Suppliers, organizations and service providers are required to keep confidential the information received on behalf of iRescue™ and may not use it for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for iRescue™. These entities may change or we may contract with additional suppliers, organizations or service providers to better accommodate our members. iRescue™ will not share personal information with any other third parties without your permission, unless required by law enforcement action, subpoena, or local law.
iRescue™ or its related entities could merge with or be acquired by another business entity or some or all of their respective assets could be acquired. If such a combination or acquisition occurs, iRescue™ will make every reasonable effort to notify you in the event we share with the merging or acquiring entity some or all of your personal information to continue serving you.
iRescue™ gives you the choice of receiving a variety of information that complements our products and services. You can subscribe to receive certain product-and service-specific information and iRescue™-wide marketing communications. iRescue™-wide communications may include new product information, special offers, or an invitation to participate in market research. We give you a choice regarding delivery of iRescue™-wide communications by postal mail, e-mail and telephone. This option does not apply to communications for the purpose of administering order completion, contracts, support, product safety warnings or updates.
Your Privacy Preferences and Opting Out
iRescue™ will not use your personal information for a different purpose than the one stated when you provided your data.
You can make your choice regarding these communications by advising us by data entry on the website, via email, or by writing or calling our customer services to establish your privacy preferences, which are applicable across all iRescue™ websites.
Your Information and Third-Party Companies
Certain iRescue™ services are linked with those from unrelated third-party companies, some which offer you the option to share with both iRescue™ and the third party personal data you provide. We will not share your personal information with those third-party companies unless you make that choice.
Access To and Accuracy of Your Information
iRescue™ strives to keep your personal information accurate. We have implemented technology, management processes and policies to maintain customer data accuracy. We will provide you with access to your information, including making reasonable effort to provide you with online access and the opportunity to change your information. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity, such as a password and user ID, before granting access to your data. Certain areas of iRescue™s websites may limit access to specific individuals through the use of passwords and other personal identifiers.
The most effective way to view and change your personal information is to return to the Web page where you originally submitted your data and follow the instructions on that Web page.
Keeping Your Information Secure
iRescue™ is committed to protecting the information you provide us. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, to maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of the information, iRescue™ has in place appropriate physical and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect.
We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information. SSL encryption is designed to make the information unreadable by anyone but us. This security measure is working when you see either the symbol of an unbroken key or closed lock (depending on your browser) on the bottom of your browser window.
Credit card numbers are used only for processing payment and are not used for other purposes. As part of real-time payment processing, iRescue™ subscribes to a fraud management service. This service gives you and iRescue™ an extra level of security to guard against credit card fraud to protect your financial data.
Changes to this Statement
If there are updates to the terms of iRescue™'s Online Privacy Statement, we will post those changes and update the revision date in this document, so you will always know what information we collect online, how we use it, and what choices you have.
1. A URL (Uniform Resource Locator) is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web. For example, http://www.iRescue.info is the URL for iRescue's U.S. home page.
2. An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web, allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop.
