Privacy and Policies

Privacy Policy
The protection of your privacy is very important to us at IFPS. IFPS does not collect personally identifiable or confidential information about individuals or companies using this Web site except when such individuals specifically provide information on a voluntary basis. For example, we may collect such information in the registration process areas of this Web site or when registering as an IFPS Member Company or User. When we collect this information, we use it to establish individual accounts and member profiles, which are protected by a password that you select.

Except as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy, personally identifiable information on individual Users will not be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties without the approval of the User at the time of collection, except where IFPS is selling all or substantially all of the assets of the organization.

In order to provide the best service for our IFPS member companies and their employees, IFPS monitors and tracks usage of this Website and collects whatever information it deems relevant at any appropriate time.

Notwithstanding anything else set forth in this Privacy Policy, you acknowledge and agree that we may preserve information as described herein and other Content posted to this Web site and may also disclose information and Content if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with legal process; (b) enforce the Terms of Use; (c) respond to claims that any Content violates the rights of third-parties; or (d) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of the Web site, IFPS, and its Members. If we believe you have breached the Terms of Use, especially with regard to the Acceptable Use Policy and the transmitting, publishing or distributing of pornographic, obscene, offensive, threatening, harassing libelous, hate-oriented, harmful, defamatory, racist, illegal or otherwise objectionable materials or content, we will report such conduct to the appropriate authorities and turn over any and all information, including personally identifying information, to appropriate persons or entities. We will also comply with any laws or legal processes that may require the disclosure of personally identifying information.

Further, IFPS attempts to store personally identifiable information of members in secure databases protected by passwords as well as database and network firewalls in order to prevent the loss, misuse, or alteration of such personally identifiable information. While no security systems are infallible, we will prosecute any unauthorized access to secured information to the fullest extent of the law. We periodically review and update security measures to ensure the best possible protections for the membership.

As IFPS expands the range of options and services available from this Web site, the collection and use of personal data will also change to serve you better. We, therefore, reserve the right to modify this Privacy Statement at any time and will post notice of such changes to this Web site.

Utilizing members’ email addresses for any type of solicitation is strictly prohibited and will result in the revocation of your membership.

If you are found in violation of the IFPS e-mail policy, you may be subject to a revocation of your IFPS membership.
