- Collecting and Use of Anonymous Data
Non-personal information is collected to track the total number of visitors visiting our website, pages visited, and time spent on those pages.
We collect and share this information only in aggregated, non-personally identifiable format. In other words, it is anonymous and does not include an individual’s name, email address, or any other contact information. We may also use a service that collects data remotely by using web beacons or tags embedded in our site’s content. The data we collect includes which operating system and browser individuals use, how individuals navigate to and through our site, and how long individuals stay on our web pages. We may share this information with our third-party vendors to provide reports of this aggregated, anonymous data. We use this data to improve our site by responding to our users’ interests and providing more relevant and useful information.
If an individual disables cookies on their browser, the site will not remember certain functional preferences. Individuals will not be able to access a preferred location view, a customized default home page view or recently visited links.
- Collecting Personal Information/Website Privacy Practices
- No Responsibility for Third-Party Collection Practices
Please note that when an individual links to our or any other website, the operator of such website (whether IGHT or a third party) may collect information about that individual, including through cookies or other technologies. In addition, Internet or other service provider(s) may collect information about or submitted by individuals using our website, or any other website. You acknowledge that information collection or privacy practices of any other party, are not monitored or controlled by IGHT and IGHT is not responsible for such websites. Links on our website to other websites are provided only as a convenience, and the inclusion of such links does not imply endorsement of the linked site. An individual should review the privacy policies of any other website visited to understand how information is collected and used.
- Limited Right to Disclose Personal Information
Collection and use of personal information will be restricted to the extent of the consent by the owner of that information. Should IGHT wish to extend the purposes for which it can use personal information, it will seek the owner’s specific consent.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, IGHT reserves the right to store and disclose to third parties any information (including personal information) under the following circumstances: when the law permits it (such as, for example, to comply with laws or to respond to governmental authorities); to legal advisors; and to protect the rights, property, safety or security of IGHT, website visitors or the public.
- 6. Accuracy of Your Personal Information
IGHT maintains procedures to ensure that the information we collect and use is accurate, up-to-date, and as complete as possible. However, we rely on individuals to disclose all material information to us and to inform us of any changes required. With proof of entitlement, a request to correct information in our possession may be made by contacting the Privacy Officer at the address set out below in the section called “Contacting our Privacy Officer.”
- Safeguarding Your Information
We apply appropriate safeguards to our computer networks and physical files and we restrict access to personal information to those IGHT employees and authorized administrators who need to know that information in order to administer the services we provide.
- Retention and Access to Your Personal Information
With proof of entitlement, a request to access personal information in our possession may be made by contacting the Privacy Officer at the address set out below in the section called “Contacting our Privacy Officer.” Because the right to access information is not absolute, IGHT may decline access to information that we have under our control for reasons such as:
- the information subject to a legal privilege; or
- the information would reveal personal information about a third party.
