Privacy

Integra International is committed to protecting the privacy of our members’ and customers’ personal information. This Policy explains how we gather and use the information that we collect from the integra-international.net website. This policy may change over time. Amendments to this statement will be posted at this URL and will be effective when posted. Your continued use of this site following the posting of any amendment, modification, or change shall constitute your acceptance thereof.

Collection & Use of Information

When users register on the Integra website, the site collects several types of information. First, the site collects contact information such as name, e-mail address, mailing address, telephone, and fax numbers. Second, the site collects information about the type of work you do (i.e. audit, accounting, consulting, tax etc.).

How this information is used is summarized below:

Site navigation

In order to guide site users to relevant content on the site, the personal information from site registration is used to build a Personal Home Page. For example, a market researcher’s Personal Home Page includes links to market research Best Practice papers, articles, and other such resources on the site.

User Convenience

The Integra website includes links to selected affiliated parties. In some circumstances, we will pass over information to pre-register users on the affiliate’s site. This is done to reduce the number of clicks for users, or to qualify users for various promotional benefits.

Access Privileges

Information collected during registration is used to verify that users have the rights to access the Integra website member only content.

Communications

Integra runs educational programs and events that may be of use to individual marketers to develop new skills or advance their careers. Information from registration is used to determine whom to contact, typically via e-mail, with an invitation to participate. Users can opt-out of such communications at any time at http://www.integra-international.net.

Site Monitoring & Maintenance

Information from user registration is used to measure the user traffic of various sections of the site. This information is used on an aggregate level only, and the site does not record the specific content viewed by an individual user.

We may also employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance (including direct and targeted marketing), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

In certain circumstances, we may share your customer information with trusted service providers that need access to your information to provide operational or other support services. We also may provide information to regulatory authorities and law enforcement officials in accordance with applicable law or when we otherwise believe in good faith that the law requires it.

Your personal information collected during site registration or when you sign up for an INTEGRA-INTERNATIONAL.NET membership will not be sold to third parties for e-mail marketing or telemarketing campaigns.

Use of IP Address

We may use your IP Address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site.

Affiliate Sites

Affiliate sites (designated by the “powered by” logo) are responsible for their own policies and procedures during e-commerce transactions. Review the vendor's policy regarding e-commerce transactions on affiliate sites. The INTEGRA-INTERNATIONAL.NET is not responsible for products and services transactions that are consummated at third party Web sites.

Advertisers

Advertisers which could include traditional banner-style ads, listings in directories or advertisements in the newsletter, are responsible for their own policies and procedures during e-commerce transactions. We recommend that you review the vendor's policy regarding e-commerce transactions on advertiser sites.

Use of Cookies

When you view our Web site we might store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a "cookie" or similar file. Cookies are small pieces of information stored on your hard drive, not on our site. Cookies do not spy on you or otherwise invade your privacy, and they cannot invade your hard drive and steal information. Rather, they help you navigate a Web site as easily as possible.

We use cookies to display registered user names on their Personal Home Page, to confirm users access rights to certain “access restricted” areas of the site, and their content preferences. We also use cookies to track visitor traffic by visitor type (aggregated, not individual) for the purpose of understanding what content users find most valuable.

Because of our use of cookies, we can deliver faster service, consistent, updated results and a more personalized site experience. You have the option of setting your browser to reject cookies. However, doing this will hinder performance and negatively impact your experience on our site.

Member Listing / Resumes

INTEGRA-INTERNATIONAL.NET operates an intrAnet that enables you to store your member listing in our database. When you create a member listing, you have the option of making the member listing searchable or non-searchable. Not allowing your resume to be searchable means that your listing will be on line but readers will not have access to search it through our database product. If you choose to make your listing searchable, then all readers who have access to our database product will have access to your listing.

We use our best efforts to grant access to the database only to business professionals, but cannot guarantee that other parties will not, without our consent, gain access to this database. You may remove your listing from our searchable database at any time. However, business who have paid for access to the database, and other parties who have otherwise gained access to the database, may have retained a copy of your listing in their own files or databases. We are not responsible for the retention, use, or privacy of listings in these instances, or for the use or privacy of listings by any of such parties while listings are in the database.

This Web site may make public chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or news groups available to you from time to time. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose any personal information.

Children

We do not specifically collect online contact information from children nor do we target or sell products for purchase by children.

Security

This Web site has industry standard security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. While there is no such thing as "perfect security" on the Internet, we will take reasonable steps to insure the safety of your personal information.
