In the course of operating the Site and/or providing our Services, we may collect (and/or receive) the following types of information. You authorize us to collect and/or receive such information.
When you sign up to become a Registered User, you will be required to provide us with personal information about yourself, such as your name, e-mail address, location, and phone number. If you contact us, you will need to provide your name and e-mail address. Registered Users may also provide identifiable information in the course of using the Site or the Services. All information we collect and/or receive under this section is collectively called "Personal Information." We do not collect any personal information from Visitors or Registered Users unless they provide such information voluntarily.
When Registered Users wish to make a Product purchase, they must provide certain information about the transactions they are seeking to execute, such as product information and shipping address. Such information is collectively called the "Transaction Information." You acknowledge and agree that your Transaction Information is shared with applicable Suppliers so that they can process and ship your order. Although we contractually obligate Suppliers to use your Transaction Information solely for the purposes of processing and shipping your order, we cannot control, and we are not responsible for, any Supplier’s use or misuse of your Transaction Information.
In addition to the information noted above, we may collect additional information (collectively, the "Other Information"). Such Other Information may include:
If you are a Registered User, you may access, review, and make changes to your Personal Information, certain Other Information, and, if applicable, Billing Information by following the instructions found on the Site. In addition, you may manage your receipt of marketing and non- transactional communications by clicking on the "unsubscribe" link located on the bottom of any IBS marketing email. Registered Users cannot opt out of receiving transactional e-mails related to their account. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to process such requests in a timely manner. You should be aware, however, that it is not always possible to completely remove or modify information in our subscription databases.
We use the Personal Information, the Transaction Information, and the Other Information (collectively, the "Information") to provide the Services; to process orders for Products; to maintain and improve our Site and Services; to solicit your feedback; and to inform you about our products and services and those of our third-party marketing partners.
We may also use and/or share Information as described below.
We take commercially reasonable steps to protect the Information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Please understand, however, that no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that the Information that you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to and from us over the Internet. In particular, e-mail sent to or from the Site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail.
