Your privacy is very important to us and sincerely protecting it is our utmost concern. At Inframanage we have a few fundamental principles:
- We don’t request for your personal information unless we absolutely need it.
- We don’t and will never share your personal information with anyone.
- We store personal information on our database for the purpose of delivering our services and products, communicating and responding to customer queries only.
If you have queries about how to delete or correct your personal data please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Inframanage Trust (“Inframanage”) operates the Inframanage.com website, a resource site for Infrastructure Management and Infrastructure Asset Management industries.
It is Inframanage’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
Like most website operators, Inframanage collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.
Inframanage’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Inframanage’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Inframanage may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Inframanage also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on the site’s blog page.
Inframanage only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Inframanage’s websites choose to interact with Inframanage in ways that require Inframanage to gather personally-identifying information.
The amount and type of information that Inframanage gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for blog updates or newsletters to provide a username and email address.
Those who engage in transactions with Inframanage – by purchasing access to our premium learning materials, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions.
In each case, Inframanage collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction and transaction with Inframanage.
Inframanage does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Inframanage may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Inframanage may monitor the most popular pages or posts on the Inframanage site or use spam screened by the applicable service to help identify spam. Inframanage may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Inframanage does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Inframanage discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Inframanage’s behalf or to provide services available at Inframanage’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.
Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Inframanage’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Inframanage will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Inframanage discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Inframanage believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Inframanage, third parties or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of an Inframanage website and have supplied your email address, Inframanage may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Inframanage and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum.
If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Inframanage takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Inframanage, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Inframanage goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Inframanage may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to our anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
