PRIVACY POLICY

This Site is operated by ITA , Inc. ITA  takes your privacy very seriously. Accordingly, we provide this notice to set forth our use of information generated from this Site.

What this Privacy Policy Covers

This policy covers how ITA  treats personal and non-personal information collected and received through the Site. Non-personal information includes “cookies.” This policy does not govern the practices of companies that ITA  does not own or control or people that ITA  does not employ or manage.

Information Collection and Use

Personal Information- You may be asked to provide personal information in certain fields on this Site. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable. Examples include your name, address, e-mail address, and other information not publicly available. The personal information collected on this Site is used only for the purpose for which it is requested via the Site.

Non-Personal Information- ITA  may automatically receive and record information on its server logs from your browser, including your IP address and cookies. We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Site. Your IP address may be used to gather broad demographic information.

Cookies- We may use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests. Cookies are text files we place in your computer's browser to store your preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell ITA  your e-mail address or other personally identifiable information unless you choose to provide this information to ITA  by, for example, registering at one of ITA 's Sites. However, once you choose to furnish the Site with personally identifiable information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. We use cookies to understand Site usage and to improve the content and offerings on ITA 's Sites. ITA  also may use cookies to offer you products, programs, or services.

Information Sharing and Disclosure- ITA  uses industry-standard technologies when transferring and receiving consumer data exchanged between ITA  and other companies to help ensure its security. This Site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under ITA 's control. However, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet.

AS A USER OF THE SITE, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY AND RISK FOR USE OF THE SITE INCLUDING THE PERSONAL INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE AND THE DOCUMENTS YOU POST OR ACCESS ON THIS SITE.

Additionally, although we strongly recommend that each of the other Sites to which we target our Internet banner advertisements post a privacy statement that fully describes the advertising activities on its Site, we cannot guarantee that all such Sites will follow our recommendation.

Links- ITA  may create links to other websites. ITA  will make a reasonable effort to link only to websites that meet similar standards for maintaining each individual's right to privacy. However, many other websites that are not associated with or authorized by ITA  may have links leading to ITA 's Site. ITA  cannot control these links and ITA  is not responsible for any content appearing on these websites. Since this Site does not control the privacy policies of third parties, you are subject to the privacy customs and policies of that third party. ITA  encourages you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.

Amendments.  ITA  in its sole discretion may amend these terms and policies at any time. These Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy are effective as of July 1, 2015.

Assignment.  If there is a change of ownership or control (whether by merger, sale, or otherwise) or if there is an asset sale, the User information, including your personal information, could be disclosed as part of such a process and/or sold as part of that transaction and your personally identifying information potentially could be used by the purchaser. If such event materially changes this statement or the information-handling practices as described in this Privacy Policy, you will be notified by email and/or through a notice posted on the Site. This Privacy Policy inures to the benefit of any successors or assigns of ITA  or their assets.
