IDM Web Site Statement of Privacy
Last updated July 2002

IDM is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This IDM Statement of Privacy applies to the IDM Web Site and governs data collection and usage at all IDM Web Site Resources. Please read the complete IDM Web Site Statement of Privacy below to learn additional details about how IDM's Web Site and services protect your personal information.


Throughout the IDM Web Site, IDM may collect personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number.

IDM does not associate sensitive data, such as your race, religion, or political affiliations, with personally identifiable information. IDM takes precautions to segregate any sensitive data you may provide on the IDM Web Site that reference your race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity or political affiliations.

IDM encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from IDM so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. IDM is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the IDM Web Site.

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by IDM. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by IDM for the operation of the IDM Web Site, to maintain quality and service levels of its supporting network and computing systems, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the IDM Web Site.


The IDM Web Site and its operational service partners may collect and use your personal information to operate the IDM Web Sites and deliver the resources and services you have requested. IDM does not sell, rent or lease its customer, vendor, or business partner lists to third parties.

IDM keeps track of the Web Site Resources and pages visited within the IDM Web Site, in order to determine what IDM resources and services are the most popular.

IDM will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on IDM or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of IDM; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of IDM, its web site, or the public.


The IDM Web Site may use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the IDM Web Site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the IDM Web Site.


IDM Web Site pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons - sometimes called single-pixel gifs - that allow IDM to count users who have visited those pages. IDM may include web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or IDM Newsletters in order to count how many messages have been opened and acted upon. Web beacons are not used to access your personally identifiable information on the IDM Web Site; they are a technique we use to compile aggregated statistics about IDM Web Site usage.

Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the Web beacon resides.


IDM secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. IDM secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information is transmitted, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encrypted protection will be used.


IDM will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. IDM encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how IDM is protecting your information.


In the interest of upholding our commitment to protecting the privacy of your personal information, IDM has agreed to disclose its information practices. If you have questions regarding this statement, you should first contact IDM via e-mail.


IDM welcomes your comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe that IDM has not adhered to this Statement, please contact IDM by telephone, e-mail, or postal mail.
