IM4US collects personally identifiable information (such as names, email addresses, city/state of residence) from Users when they voluntarily provide such information to us, including, for example, when Users sign up to become members of IM4US, or when Users make a financial donation to IM4US.
How IM4US Uses the Information that It Collects
IM4US uses Users’ personal information to better understand how Users use the Website so that IM4US can improve the Website and its offerings. IM4US also uses Users’ personal information for the purpose for which the Users provided the information, in other words, to provide requested information, to process a donation, or to otherwise fulfill a request. If you provide IM4US with your email address and/or mailing address, IM4US will add you to its email and/or mailing list, as applicable, and may contact you with information that IM4US thinks will be of interest to you. If at any time you wish to stop receiving communications from IM4US, please follow the unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of any email IM4US sends you, or send IM4US an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to be removed from IM4US’s distribution lists.
In addition, certain personally identifiable information of IM4US members is included in IM4US’s Membership Directory, which is made available to all verified IM4US members. Members are urged to use the information regarding other IM4US members for appropriate purposes, but IM4US is not responsible for the misuse of any member’s personal information by other members. If at any time, you wish to have your personal information removed from the IM4US Membership Directory, please email IM4US at email@example.com.
How IM4US Protects User Information
IM4US adopts appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to help protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information, but IM4US cannot guarantee that your information is 100% secure. Moreover, IM4US has no control over how members may use the personal information of other members that is made available in the IM4US Membership Directory. Your credit card information is stored in a manner that is PCI compliant.
Sharing Personal Information
IM4US shares members’ personally identifiable information (including name, email address, city/state, professional role, but never credit card information) with other IM4US members. IM4US does not share personally identifiable information about Users with any other third parties unless required to do so by law, or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws or to respond to a court order, subpoena, or search warrant.
IM4US may also share generic aggregated demographic information not linked to any personally identifiable information regarding Users with third parties. IM4US may use third party service providers to help it operate its business and the Website or administer activities on IM4US’s behalf, such as collecting donations on IM4US’s behalf. IM4US may share User information with these third parties for those limited purposes but IM4US requires that such third parties protect the confidentiality of your information and use it for no other purpose.
Third Party Websites
Compliance with Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act
Protecting the privacy of the young is especially important. For that reason, IM4US never collects information at the Website from those IM4US knows are under 13, and no part of the Website is structured to attract anyone under 13. If IM4US becomes aware of having information about anyone under 13, IM4US will promptly delete the information.
California Privacy Rights
If you reside in California and have provided your personally identifiable information to IM4US, you may request information once per calendar year about IM4US’s disclosures of certain categories of your personally identifiable information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. Such requests must be submitted to IM4US at firstname.lastname@example.org.
