IVI Privacy Policy

At Information Ventures, Inc. (IVI) we take your privacy very seriously. Because of this, we want to provide you with explicit information on how we may collect, gather, and identify information during your visit to our Web site. This information may be expanded or updated as we change or develop our site, so we recommend that you review this policy from time to time to see if anything has changed. Your continued use of our site signifies your acceptance of our privacy policy.

What information do we collect and how do we use it?

The amount of personally identifiable information (information that tells us specifically who you are, such as your name, phone number, e-mail or postal address) that you choose to disclose to IVI is completely up to you. All personally identifiable information we collect is through voluntary submissions of our users. In some cases, we need this information to provide the products or services that you request; for instance, you may sign up for a newsletter or request a product. The only way we know something about you personally is if you provide it to us in conjunction with one of our products.

Information we collect from our Web logs when you access a specific page on our site does not personally identify you. It will, however, allow us to observe your usage pattern and combine it with usage patterns of other users to improve and customize the content you see (e.g., to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive). This aggregated information is not shared with any advertisers or business partners and does not include any personally identifiable information about you or allow anyone to identify you individually.

IVI automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser, cookie information, and the page you visited. Our Web server does log your IP address in standard server logs. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Web site. None of the statistics reported includes personal information about any visitor to our site.

Does IVI Place Cookies on My Computer?

“Cookies“ are small text files a Web site uses to recognize repeat users and facilitate the user's ongoing use of the site. Cookies also allow a site to track traffic statistics, usage behavior and compile usage information that will allow for the improvement of content. IVI does not currently collect non-personally identifiable information and data through the use of cookies, though we reserve the option to do so in the future.

With whom does IVI share the information it gathers and tracks?

IVI does not sell or rent your personal information to anyone. We do not share information with other organizations for marketing purposes. Information we collect may be used by IVI to contact consumers for our own marketing endeavors. If we do use mailing lists for advertising or promotional purposes, we will always have a clear mechanism for you to remove yourself from future mailings.


If you have provided us with your e-mail address, we may periodically send promotional e-mails about services and products we offer. We may also notify you about updates to our services and to let you know about new products or services that may interest you. If you do not wish to receive e-mail from IVI, please let us know by e-mailing us at: customer-service@infoventures.com.
