IAEI is committed to protecting your privacy online. This statement discloses the information practices for IAEI web sites, including what type of information is gathered and tracked, how the information is used, and with whom the information is shared.
You can travel through most of our site without giving us any information about yourself. But sometimes we do need information to provide services that you request, and this statement of privacy explains data collection and use in those situations. Please read the complete iaei.org privacy statement.
Web Logs and Cookies
IAEI does log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our Web site you visit and how long you spend there. But we do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you have logged in to our website.

In general, you can visit IAEI.org without telling us who you are and without revealing any information about yourself. There are times, however, when we may need information from you. You may choose to give us personal information, such as your name and address or e-mail ID that may be needed, for example, to correspond with you, to process an order or to provide you with a subscription. When you register, or otherwise give us personal information, IAEI.org will not share that information with third parties without your permission, other than for the limited exceptions already listed. It will only be used for the purposes stated above.
It is our intent to let you know how we will use such information before we collect it from you on the Internet. We provide this information through the YOUR PRIVACY link, which is presented wherever personal information is collected. If you tell us that you do not want us to use this information as a basis for further contact with you, we will respect your wishes.

Except as set forth above, IAEI will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on IAEI or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of IAEI and its family of Web sites, and, (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of IAEI, its Web sites, or the public.
Collecting your Personal Information
We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you. Generally, this information is requested when you are asked to register for a seminar, registering for membership, or when purchasing and registering IAEI products. Personal information collected by IAEI.org often is limited to e-mail address, language, country or location, but may include other information when needed to provide a service you requested.
For example: If you choose to make a purchase in the Shop area of the Web site, we will request personal information such as: name, address, telephone number, credit card number and shipping information. When you buy and install a new product, we may ask you to register your purchase electronically. When you do, we keep this registration information on file with any information you’ve already given us on previous visits to our Web site. This is considered your personal profile.
Security of your Personal Information
IAEI.org strictly protects the security of your personal information and honors your choices for its intended use. We carefully protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
Your personal information is never shared outside the company without your permission, except under conditions explained above. Inside the company, data is stored in password-controlled servers with limited access. Your information may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country where IAEI, its chapters, or divisions are located. You also have a significant role in protecting your information. No one can see or edit your personal information without knowing your Passport and password, so do not share these with others.
IAEI acknowledges your trust and is committed to protecting the information you provide us. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain accuracy, and ensure proper use of information, we have employed physical, electronic, and managerial processes to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
When you make a purchase from our Site, we use Secure Sockets Layer (“”SSL””) encryption technology to safeguard your credit card and other sensitive information while it is being sent to us. The SSL encryption is designed to make the information unreadable by anyone but us. This security measure is working when you see either the symbol of an unbroken key or closed lock (depending on your browser) on the bottom of your browser window.
