HOW DOES ILX PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY?
When you visit and navigate ILX sites and when you communicate with them via their sites, they will not collect personal information about you unless you provide them that information voluntarily. Any non-public personal information that you may provide via their sites will be used solely for the purpose stated on the page where it is collected. (In some cases, and in all cases where required by law or regulation, you will be able to update the information that you provide to them either by sending them an e-mail or, where you have established personal profiles with them, by updating your profile online. Please refer to the specific pages where data is collected for more information.) ILX Group will not sell, license, transmit or disclose this information outside of ILX Group and its affiliated companies unless (a) expressly authorized by you, (b) necessary to enable ILX Group contractors or agents to perform certain functions for them, or (c) required or permitted by law. In all cases, ILX will disclose the information consistent with applicable laws and regulations and they will require the recipient to protect the information and use it only for the purpose it was provided.
By "personal information," ILX means data that is unique to an individual, such as a name, address, Social Security number, e-mail address, or telephone number. From time to time, they may request personal information from you at their sites in order to deliver requested materials to you, respond to your questions, or deliver a product or service.
ILX welcomes your comments or questions about their websites and has provided e-mail boxes for that purpose. They will share your comments and questions with their customer service representatives and those employees most capable of addressing your questions and concerns.
Please note that your e-mail, like most, if not all, non-encrypted Internet e-mail communications, may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users, without your knowledge and permission, while in transit to them. For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use e-mail to communicate information to them that you consider confidential. If you wish, you may contact ILX instead via non-cellular telephone at the numbers provided at various locations on their website.
There are some locations on ILX Group websites where we have made special provisions for a more secure environment in which we can exchange information with you. At each of these locations, we will provide you with appropriate instructions.
