The collection of information and how we use it

We use other information about you for the following general purposes: to provide You with the Services You request; to manage Your account, including processing bills; to communicate with You in general; to respond to Your questions and comments.

Phishing
Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to IYF. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your account ID, login password or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication.

Information Sharing and Disclosure
IYF may send information about You to third parties when:

Security
We want you to feel confident about using the IYF Digital Platforms. For that reason, we have implemented reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to secure your information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. However, the Internet is an open system and we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your information for improper purposes.

If you communicate with IYF by email, You should note that the secrecy of Internet email is uncertain. By sending sensitive or confidential email messages or information which are not encrypted you accept the risk of such uncertainty and possible lack of confidentiality over the Internet.

You are entitled to see the information held about you. If you wish to do this, please use the contact us form. We may require you to provide verification of your identity and to pay an administration fee to provide a copy of the information we hold. Please note that in certain circumstances we may withhold access to your information where we have the right to do so under current data protection legislation.

Updating/Deleting your information
You may review, correct, update, change or delete your personal/organization information at any time by request updating. We will accommodate your request for deletion, if we do not have any legal obligation to retain the record.

If any part of the IYF Digital Platforms link to other websites, those websites do not operate under this Privacy Policy. If you choose to visit an advertiser or click on another third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s website. We do not exercise control over third party websites and therefore recommend you examine the privacy statements posted on these other websites to understand their procedures for collecting, using and disclosing personal information.
