Information Managers Ltd Privacy Statement
Privacy Officer: Jean Eaton
If you have any questions or concerns please contact Jean by email (email@example.com) or by phone (780-237-7605).
During a visit to our Web site, your privacy is respected. We do not collect personal information about you unless you choose to send us an e-mail, in which you voluntarily provide your name and contact information. The nature of the Internet is such that it passively and automatically collects certain information about a user's traffic patterns, linked to their Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. These are unique Internet "addresses" assigned to all Web users by their Internet Service Providers (ISP). IP addresses are automatically logged by Web servers. While the IP address does not identify an individual on its face, it may with the cooperation of the ISP be used to locate and identify an individual using the Web. The IP address is considered personal information because it is an identifying number, and IP addresses are therefore protected by most privacy legislation.
Visitors' personal information received via e-mail is provided only to Information Managers Ltd employees and authorized affiliates, who require the information to respond to inquiries. We do not use this information for any other purpose.
As we cannot guarantee the security of electronic systems or e-mail, we do not recommend sending sensitive personal information. For all such matters, please contact us by calling 780-237-7605.
Our Web site is hosted on servers owned and managed by a third-party.
Server logs: Servers automatically log information about visits to our Web site in the normal course of establishing and maintaining Web connections. Server logs record statistical information, such as visitors' IP addresses, type of operating systems, time and duration of visit, Web pages requested, and identify categories of visitors by items such as domains and browser types. These statistics are reported in aggregate form to our Web and communications staff, and are used to improve our Web site and ensure that it provides the optimal Web experience for visitors.
We do not link server log information to any other data in a way that would enable us to identify individual visitors. However, we may review server logs for security purposes, for example, to detect intrusions into our network. The possibility therefore exists that server log data, which contains visitors' IP addresses, could in instances of criminal malfeasance be used to trace and identify individuals. In such instances, raw data logs would be shared with appropriate investigative bodies authorized to investigate such breaches of security.
Cookies: Our site makes use of "persistent cookies". Cookies are small text files offered to your computer by Web servers in order to keep track of your browser as you navigate the site. Cookies are non-transferrable and the nature of the Internet security framework is that no website can gain access to any cookies other than its own. From the aggregated information on unique visits, we learn how visitors interact with our site, how we can improve our site design and content, and how to improve visitors' experiences.
NOTE: Visiting our Web site with cookies disabled will have no significant impact on your browsing experience. You can set your browser to detect and reject cookies. Please consult your browser's Help Menu for instructions.
Other sites to which we provide links may be governed by different policies. We do not assume responsibility for the information practices of these other Web sites, and we strongly encourage all Web visitors to review the privacy policies and statements of all externally-linked sites.
Questions about this policy may be directed to our Privacy Officer, Jean Eaton.
Links to Web sites are not under our control and are provided solely for the convenience of users. Information Mangers Ltd is not responsible for the accuracy, currency or the reliability of the content. Information Mangers Ltd does not offer any guarantee in that regard and is not responsible for the information found through these links, nor does it endorse the sites and their content.
