We may also receive other Personal Information from third parties in connection with the operation and distribution of our products and services, as well as market and demographic studies that we use to supplement Personal Information provided directly by you. As with all other information, we use this data only for purposes consistent with this policy.

 

                        B. What Is Non-Personal Information And When Does IR Collect It?

We may also receive either non-personal or public information from third parties in connection with market and demographic studies that we use to supplement personal information provided directly by you.

 

   ii. How Does IR Collect Non-Personal Information?

 

IR collects Non-Personal Information as well Personal Information when you actively provide it in the context of various online and mobile activities including: online and mobile purchases, registration/activation of products, and marketing surveys. In addition, we use cookies and other technologies to passively collect non-personal demographic information, personalize your experience on our sites and monitor advertisements and other activities.

 

                        a. Cookies

 

Cookies are small files applied to your Internet browser to track movements within websites. We may link cookie information to Personal Information. Cookies link to information regarding what items you have selected for purchase at our store, pages you have viewed, or products you have used. We also use cookies to deliver personalized content and to monitor website or product usage. We collect information on what products are used, how much time is spent using the product and which ads or links are clicked.

 

Some of our sites use an outside ad company to display ads. These ads contain cookies. Our ad companies apply cookies received with banner ads; IR does not have access to this information. Most browsers are automatically set to accept cookies whenever you visit a website. You can disable cookies or set your browser to alert you when cookies are being sent. However some areas of our sites will not function properly if you do so.

 

We may also use flash cookies, also known as "local shared objects," on our sites that employ Flash technology. Flash cookies are small files similar to browser cookies and are used to remember the site's settings to personalize the look and feel of the site. Flash cookies only collect data in the aggregate. One method of preventing Flash cookies from being placed is to adjust your preferences in the Macromedia Website Privacy Settings Panel at www.macromedia.com.

 

Please note that this Privacy Policy only covers the use of cookies by IR and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

 

                        b. Third Party Ad Serving Technology

 

IR may use ad-serving companies to collect information. For more information about the practices of large ad serving companies that may collect information based on your interaction with ads on this site and others, or to "opt out" of targeted advertising delivered by National Advertising Initiative (NAI) member ad networks, you should visit www.networkadvertising.org.

 

                        c. Clear GIFs

 

Clear GIFs (a.k.a. web bugs, beacons or tags) are small graphic images placed on a web page, web-based document, or in an email message. Clear GIFs are invisible to the user because they are typically very small (only 1-by-1 pixel) and the same color as the background of the web page, document or email message. We do not use clear GIFs to collect personal information about you. However, we may use clear GIFs to capture statistical usage information for our web pages, features or other elements on a web page. We correlate this information to a user to personalize user experience and for statistical analysis of user experiences on our web pages.

 

                        d. Internet Log Files

 

IR may also maintain log files that contain IP addresses. An IP address is a numeric address that may be assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider. In general, we use log files to monitor traffic on our websites, to troubleshoot technical problems and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. In the event of continued abuse of the Conditions of Use, however, we may block certain IP addresses. If available, IP addresses may be used to personally identify you in order to enforce our Conditions of Use. For further information, please see http://www.instantremedys.com/Static/COU.

 

                        e. Analytic Metrics Tool And Other Technologies

 

IR also uses an internal analytic metrics tool and other analytics technologies to collect Non-Personal Information when you use our online products and/or services through a computer and/or mobile device. The information collected may include: data about your hardware system, mobile device (if applicable), media, Internet and website usage and how your IR product is used, feature usage and purchase history, as well as MAC Address, mobile ID (if applicable) and IP address.

IR uses your information to fulfill your specific requests, for purchases and to send you purchase confirmation or other account-related information. In addition, if you choose to receive communications from us about IR products and news, the Personal Information you provide will allow us to send you messages about things including: new products, features, enhancements, special offers, and upgrade opportunities. You may also later opt out of this service from IR.

 

Otherwise, IR uses Personal and Non-Personal Information, both individually and combined, to better understand our customers, troubleshoot technical problems, enforce our Conditions of Use, ensure proper functioning of our products and services as well as to help improve them. We will not, however, send you any such marketing emails you unless you opt in to receive them.

 

                        B. Will IR Share My Information With Third Parties?

 

IR will never share your Personal Information with third parties without your consent. We may, however, share Non-Personal Information in the aggregate (in a form that does not personally identify you) with third parties. You may also opt in to allow IR to share your Personal Information with companies and organizations that provide products or services that we believe may be of interest to you. To opt out of further communications from a marketing partner or sponsor with whom your information has been shared, please contact that partner or sponsor directly. If you have any questions please contact info@instantremedys.com.

 

IR may employ third party contractors to collect Personal Information on our behalf to provide: email delivery, the product, credit card processing, shipping or other services on our sites. When requesting these services, you may be asked to supply your name, mailing address, telephone number and email address to our contractors. We ask some third party contractors, such as credit agencies or market research firms, to supplement Personal Information that you provide to us for our own marketing and demographic studies, so that we can consistently improve our sites and related advertising to better meet our users’ needs and preferences. In order to generate relevant content, we may tie this information to the Personal Information you provide to us.

 

Third party contractors are required to adhere to IR’S Privacy Policy when they have access to and/ or collect Personal Information from IR users. These third party contractors are prohibited from using your Personal Information for any other purpose without your specific consent.

 

IR will only share Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy, except in the event of a merger, acquisition, or bankruptcy, when control of IR customer information may be transferred to its successor or assignee, regardless of age. We may also disclose Personal Information to: law enforcement, appropriate civil authorities to enforce legal rights and comply with the law, comply with an order from a government entity or other competent authority.

 

Personal Information may also be disclosed when necessary to address potential or actual injury or interference: with our rights, property, operations, users or others who may be harmed or may suffer loss or damage, or when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, combat fraud and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on IR.

 

III. Where Is The Information Held?

 

For Apps used within the United States, IR and the majority of the computer systems on which IR collects, stores, and uses the information it collects or receives are based in the United States. Under limited circumstances, such as when IR regional based systems are utilized to provide service in other countries, we may utilize data storage facilities located outside of the United States. Your Personal Information may be transferred to, used, processed or held by IR in the United States and in other countries, and used for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy.

 

IV. How Does IR Protect Your Personal Information?

 

The security of you Personal Information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and in storage. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially reasonable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
