Information IMS Automatically Collects From You

IMS collects no personally-identifiable information about you or your clients when you visit our Portal, unless you choose to provide this information to us.

However, we do collect and store certain other information automatically that does not identify you or your company personally.  We automatically collect:

  • The Internet domain.  For example, “xcompany.com” if you use your company’s private Internet access account.

  • The type of browser and operating system used to access our Portal.
  • The date and time you access our Portal.
  • The pages on our Portal that you access.
  • The address of a referring website (if you linked to our Portal from another website.)

We use this information in the form of summary statistics to help us make our Portal more useful to our clients and their visitors, such as assessing what information is of most and least interest, and for other purposes such as determining the Portal’s design specifications and identifying system performance or problem areas.

This information is NOT shared with anyone except IMS and its affiliated and subsidiary operations, as applicable.

If you choose to provide IMS with personally-identifiable information–by sending us an e-mail message or by filling out an online form and submitting it to us through our Portal–please be aware that we may use the information to improve our service to you, to respond to your request, carry out our obligations and enforce our rights arising from any contracts entered into between you and IMS, and any other way we may describe when you provide the information and/or to other purpose for which you provide it.  Your message or submission could be saved in an electronic database or forwarded, in print or as e-mail, to others within IMS or its affiliated and subsidiary operations that may be better able to help you.  Except as required by law, we do not share our e-mails with outside organizations.
