LAST UPDATED: OCTOBER 26, 2017.

International Risk Management Institute, Inc., and its subsidiaries and affiliated companies (collectively "IRMI," "we," "us," or "our"), respects your privacy rights and is strongly committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy describes how your personal information is collected, used, stored, and disclosed by us, as well as the choices you can make about how we use your information. This Privacy Policy applies to personal information (as defined below) collected from our online resources, products, services, courses, webinars, and communications (such as websites, mobile applications, publications, e-mail, and other interactive tools) (hereinafter collectively the "IRMI Site," "Site," or "Services") that display a link to this policy. This Privacy Policy, along with our Terms of Use, governs the Services regardless of how you access them. Some Services, including those of our subsidiaries and affiliated companies, may have a specific, separate Privacy Policy that will govern use of those Services.

Please note that IRMI's subsidiaries and affiliated companies offer their products and services under various brand names and on multiple websites. IRMI's subsidiaries and affiliated companies include the following:

This Privacy Policy does not apply to (1) information collected by any third party, including through any application or content (including advertising) that may link to or be accessible from or on our Services; or (2) our mobile applications that you download from third-party app stores, which provide dedicated nonbrowser-based interaction between you and our Services, and which present you with a separate mobile application privacy policy and terms of service.

This Privacy Policy is organized as follows:

If you have any questions about our privacy practices, please refer to the end of this Privacy Policy for information on How To Contact Us.

1. What Information Do We Collect and How Do We Collect It?

We collect three basic types of information from you in conjunction with your use of the Services: (1) personal information, (2) financial information, and (3) nonpersonal information.

a. Personal Information

Personal information is any information that individually identifies you (such as your name, e-mail address, telephone number, postal address, job title, and employer's name).

b. Financial Information

Financial information includes any payment method (such as a credit card number) you provide when you purchase our products or services, including our courses, conferences, and webinars.

c. Nonpersonal Information

Nonpersonal information is information that does not personally identify you but is generated automatically when you use the Site or the Services, such as anonymous, aggregate, and statistical data about your device, your browser software, your usage of the Site or the Services, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. Although such information does not personally identify you, we may be able to determine from an IP address a user's Internet Service Provider ("ISP") and the user’s geographic location.

We collect this information in the following ways:

2. Information You Provide Directly to Us

We may ask you to provide your personal information, financial information, or information about your preferences or interests when you:

  • Register for an account on the IRMI Site;

3. Information We Collect Automatically When You Use the IRMI Site

When you access or use the IRMI Site, we may use a variety of technologies that automatically collect nonpersonal information about you, including the following:

a. Device Information

We may automatically collect certain information about the computer or devices (including mobile devices) you use to access the Services. This information may include the type of device you are using to access the Services, your browser (for example, whether you use Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, or another browser), your ISP, your domain name, your IP address, and your unique device identifier (also known as "UDID").

b. Usage Information

We may automatically collect information related to the ways in which you interact with the Services, such as content viewed and the order in which you viewed those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time you used the Services, the frequency of your use of the Services, error logs, crash reports, and other similar information. We may also capture other data, such as search criteria and results.

c. Location Information

When you use a computer, smartphone, or other mobile device to access our Services, or use our mobile applications, we may collect information about your physical location.

4. Use of Cookies and Other Electronic Technologies

When you use our Services, including mobile applications, we use a variety of electronic technologies to collect information about your device and your use of the Services. These technologies include cookies and other similar technologies, such as pixel tags and local storage, to help provide you with a better, faster, and safer experience.

A cookie is a small text file that is stored in your Web browser that allows us or a third party to recognize you. Cookies might be used for the following purposes: (1) to enable certain functions, (2) to provide analytics, (3) to store your preferences, and (4) to enable advertising delivery and behavioral advertising.

Cookies can either be session cookies or persistent cookies. A session cookie expires automatically when you close your browser. A persistent cookie will remain until it expires or you delete your cookies. Expiration dates are set in the cookies themselves; some may expire after a few minutes while others may expire after multiple years. Cookies placed by the website you are visiting are sometimes called "first party cookies," while cookies placed by other companies are sometimes called "third party cookies."

b. What Other Similar Technologies Do We Use?

Pixel tags (also called clear GIFs, Web beacons, or pixels) are small blocks of code that are embedded in Web pages, applications, and e-mail notifications that typically work in conjunction with cookies. We may use pixel tags to monitor how you navigate the Services, track the Web pages you visit, improve our products and services, determine which e-mail notifications or newsletters sent by us were opened, and which links were actually clicked. Using pixels allows us to measure and improve our products and services and personalize your experience on the IRMI Site.

Local storage is an industry-standard technology that allows a website or application to store and retrieve data on a person’s computer, mobile phone, or other device. Examples of local storage include browser Web storage (HTML 5) and caching. We may use local storage to help ensure that your account security is not compromised, or to spot irregularities in behavior to prevent your account from being accessed in an unauthorized manner, or to assess the performance of our Services.

Hereinafter, we may use the terms "cookies" or "similar technologies" interchangeably in our Privacy Policy to refer to all technologies that we may use to store data in your browser or device, or that collect information, or that help us identify you in the manner described in this Privacy Policy.

c. Why Do We Use Cookies or Similar Technologies?

We use cookies or similar technologies to do many things, like recognize when you visit the Services and remember your preferences. Cookies are also used to make your interactions with the Site faster and more secure. Each cookie serves one of the following purposes:

5. Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a Web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"), to help us understand how you use our Services. Google Analytics uses cookies to collect information such as how often visitors use the Services, what pages they visit, and what website referred you to the Site. We have enabled the Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting feature and use it, along with other information we get from Google Analytics, solely to gain insight about our users' interests and to improve your experience when you visit our Services. 

In order to collect this information, Google Analytics places a persistent cookie on your computer or device, so that it can recognize your computer and device when you visit the Services in the future. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit the Services, rather than your name or any other personally identifying information. The IP address is not shared with us from Google Analytics; only the general location information is shared. This allows us to get a general sense of where our users are located. We do not combine the information generated through the use of Google Analytics with any personal information you have voluntarily provided to us. Although Google Analytics plants a persistent cookie on your Web browser to identify you as a unique member the next time you visit our Site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google's ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to the Services is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Service and the Google Privacy Policy. If you would like to view a more detailed description of Google Analytics security and privacy principles, please click here.

Google has created a browser add-on to allow you to opt out of participating in Google Analytics data collection. This add-on may be found at Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.  You may also opt out of Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting by using the Ads Setting. To learn more about managing cookies, click here.

6. Information from Surveys and Evaluations

We use online surveys to obtain evaluations, feedback, and data on your satisfaction with certain Services, such as websites, content, courses, conferences, or webinars. These surveys typically do not collect personal information, but certain surveys may request such information from time to time. Moreover, surveys may be sent to you using personal information (such as your name and e-mail address) you provided to us when you registered for the Site, Services, our courses, conferences, or webinars. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary. If you decline the survey, you will still have access to the Site and, to the extent applicable, the same content, products, and services as those who take the survey. Answers to the surveys help us improve the Site and allow us to tailor our content, products, and services to the needs of our users.

7. Testimonials

We post user testimonials that may contain personal information on the Site. However, we obtain the user's written consent to post his or her name and testimonial as well as any media (such as photos, videos, or audio recordings) prior to posting such information. If you want your testimonial removed, please Contact Us.

Alternatively, the law provides that in lieu of responding to such a request, a company may comply by disclosing in its Privacy Policy that it provides consumers with a choice to opt out of having your personal information shared with third parties for those third parties' direct marketing purposes, and information on how to exercise that choice. We have such a policy in place. The With Whom Do We Share or Disclose Your Information? and Your Choices about the Collection and Use of Your Information sections of this Privacy Policy explain our practices and how you can opt out of having your information shared with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.

If you are a California resident and you have questions about our practices with respect to sharing information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes and your ability to exercise choice, please Contact Us, or you may write to us at the following mailing address:

17. Do Not Track Signals

Some newer Web browsers allow you to set a "Do Not Track" privacy preference that transmits a "Do Not Track" signal to the websites you visit with information indicating that you do not want your activity to be tracked. More information about this privacy preference can be found on the following websites: Firefox and Internet Explorer.

We do not respond to "Do Not Track" signals at this time. If we do so in the future, we will describe how we do so in this Privacy Policy. For more information about "Do Not Track," please visit www.allaboutdnt.org.

18. How We Protect Your Personal and Financial Information

The security of your personal and financial information is important to us. Therefore, we maintain administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed to assist us in protecting the personal and financial information we collect against accidental, unlawful, or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure, or use. For example, we comply with the current Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards for encryption in the transmission of your sensitive personal and financial information between your system and ours, and we use firewalls to help prevent unauthorized personnel from gaining access to your personal and financial information.

Please note that due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, no electronic transmission of information can be entirely secure. We cannot guarantee that the security measures we have in place to safeguard personal information or financial information will never be defeated or fail or that those measures will always be sufficient or effective.

To further protect yourself, you should safeguard your password and not share it with anyone. You should also sign off your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit to the Site. Please note that we will never ask for your account user name or password via e-mail.

19. Visiting the Services from Outside the United States
