Privacy Policy

Security, Identity and Personal Information

ITLM has created this Privacy Policy in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy and to establish certain guidelines for your use of the Website. The Privacy Policy governs the use of any personal information you provide to ITLM as well as any information collected by ITLM.

Additionally, ITLM has implemented appropriate physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the personal information we collect to protect the personal information you provide against unauthorized access and use. This Website has security measures in place, including firewalls and intrusion detection systems, to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. However, all security is subject to possible circumvention, and we cannot and do not provide any guarantees regarding the effectiveness of the security we employ or our ability to prevent third parties, acting unlawfully, from obtaining information that you provide to us.

Archiving and Preservation of Information

Transactions conducted on the Website are protected by an SSL encrypting system. Please be aware, however, that no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure and any information disclosed online can potentially be collected and used by persons other than the intended recipient.

ITLM restricts access to personal information to ITLM’s authorized employees and only when necessary in the course of conducting normal business operations. ITLM archives all information, including personal information, and stores that information on servers that are controlled by us or by third parties who have agreed to comply with our commitments made under this Privacy Policy and with whom we have a contractual relationship. Archived information will not ordinarily be erased unless and until your entire account with ITLM is deleted, and even then we may retain some or all of your information on back-up files.

What Information Is Collected by ITLM?

You may use the Website without providing any personal information to ITLM. However, if you choose to sign up for an account, purchase products or make donations on the Website, for payment and processing purposes, you will need to provide certain information, including your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address, as well as certain financial information (such as your charge or credit card number). Any information you provide on the Website may be stored on ITLM's mainframe server. You may delete your personal information at any time as soon as your order has been processed and delivered by emailing ITLM at webmaster@ itlmedia.org. Please note that ITLM may collect non-personal information about you even if you do not purchase any products on the Website; see "Cookies."

Upon creating an account, you will be assigned a login ID and a password that will allow you to access your personal information. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer. ITLM is not responsible for any unauthorized access to your account by an individual who has obtained your login ID and/or password through no fault of ITLM.

What Use is Made of the Information You Provide to ITLM?

ITLM uses personal information about you for the following general purposes: (i) to provide you with information and links to the products and services you request; (ii) to provide you with purchase confirmations and updates; (iii) to manage your account; (iv) to communicate with you; (v) to respond to your questions and comments; (vi) to measure interest in and improve the products and this Website; (vii) to notify you about special offers and products or services that may be of interest to you; (viii) to otherwise customize your experience with this Website; (ix) to solicit information from you, including through surveys; (x) to resolve disputes or troubleshoot problems with the operation of our Website; (xi) to prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities; (xii) to enforce our Terms of Use; and (xiii) as otherwise described to you herein.

ITLM does not disclose any personal information to anyone except as is required or permitted by law or with your consent. For example, ITLM may share your information: (i) in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process; (ii) to establish or exercise our legal rights; (iii) to defend against legal claims; (iv) when we believe it is appropriate to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal or suspected illegal activities; (v) to protect and defend the rights, property, or safety of our company or this Website, our customers, or others; (vi) in connection with our Terms of Use; or (vii) in connection with a corporate transaction, such as a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.

ITLM may share your personal information with third party vendors who provide services or functions on our behalf, including credit card processing, business analytics, customer service, marketing, distribution of surveys or sweepstakes programs, and fraud prevention. ITLM may also authorize third party vendors to collect information on our behalf, including as necessary to operate features of our Website or to facilitate the delivery of online advertising tailored to your interests. Third party vendors have access to and may collect information only as needed to perform their functions and are not permitted to share or use the information for any other purpose. They are also required to follow the same data security practices that we ourselves adhere to.

Additionally, all personal information provided by users of the Website may be shared with present affiliates as well as future ITLM partners in joint venture, cooperative marketing, strategic alliance or similar agreements. In the event that ITLM, or all or part of its assets, are acquired by a third party, our customer list and personal information provided by you may be included in the transferred assets. While ITLM will use commercially reasonable efforts to cause such third parties to comply with this Privacy Policy, ITLM does not control the policies or practices of third parties to which ITLM discloses this information, and use of such information by these third parties may not be governed by this Privacy Policy.

ITLM may disclose your information if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to comply with applicable law, a subpoena or other legal process or special circumstances such as the filing of a criminal complaint. Notably, ITLM may deem a disclosure necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against a person or entity who may be violating the Terms of Use, or who may be causing injury to, or interfering with, other users of the Website. This disclosure may be necessary to identify or question any individual who, intentionally or unintentionally, damages the property or infringes the rights of ITLM, other Website users, or any persons penalized as a result of such actions.
