We may collect information from you through your use of our website, when you request information from us or engage our services
We may collect demographic and aggregate information from the users of the IRES website to improve the website content and usage. The term 'demographic information' means anonymous information such as geographical location and particulars of the industry of the visitors. The term 'aggregate information' means data about a group or category of services or visitors from which individual identities have been removed. Please note that demographic and aggregate information does not include any information that can identify an individual.Online applications and registration
On certain pages on our website, visitors may be prompted to provide certain personal information in a particular capacity (eg., internship applications, registrations for access to the Knowledge Centre page or subscription to newsletters).
Such personal information may include information capable of identifying a user such as age, gender, name, place of work, profession, marital status etc. Additionally, we may collect log in related information such as your web request, IP address, browser type, browser language, date and time of request and your usernames, passwords, email addresses and other security-related information used by you in relation to this website.
We assure you that the personal information collected in this manner will be solely used for the purpose specified at the point of collection. For example, any personal information collected as a part of an application for an internship will be used only for the purpose of review of such information for selection of interns.Comments and E-mail
On certain pages forming part of the IRES website, visitors are given the opportunity, but are not bound, to provide comments on the content along with their names. Please note that IRES does not require its visitors to provide such comments, and the making of any comments is entirely optional. In relation to any comments provided by you at the designated pages of the IRES website, IRES retains the right to edit, publish and delete such comments without the need to obtain any prior consent or confirmation from you.
If an online form or an e-mail submitted by a user contains personal information, we will only use such personal information to the extent necessary to respond to any comment or question from such user. We will limit access to such personal information and will keep such personal information in a secure system. We may keep hard copies of certain information on file. However, we will ensure that any personal information stored in hard copies is kept at a secure location.Cookies
IRES may also use "web beacons" (also known as "web bugs," "action tags," "pixel trackers," or "clear GIFs"), which are small, graphic images on a web page, web-based document or in an e-mail message that are designed to allow us or a third party to collect certain information and monitor user activity on our sites. Web beacons are invisible to the user because they are typically very small (only 1-by-1 pixels) and have the same color as the background of the web page, document or e-mail message. We may use web beacons to collect non-personal information such as the IP address of the computer that the web beacon is sent to, the URL of the page the web beacon comes from, and the time it was activated (such as when you view the web page, advertisement or e-mail that contains the web beacon). Web beacons can be linked to personal information, but we do not use web beacons that link to personal information. We may permit third parties to place web beacons on our sites, but these web beacons are not linked to personal information either.
IRES maintains log files, which contain Internet Protocol ("IP") addresses. An IP address is a numeric address that is assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider. We do not link IP addresses to personal information. In general, we only use log files to monitor traffic on our website and to troubleshoot technical problems. In the event of abuse, however, we may block certain IP addresses.
We may disclose demographic and aggregated information about our users and information that does not identify any individual without restriction.
Please note that we do not sell, rent, distribute or otherwise make any of your personal information available for a commercial purpose, except as expressly provided in this Policy or with your prior permission.
