Terms of Service and Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At i-p-tel we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, i-p-tel 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. i-p-tel’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how i-p-tel’s visitors use its website. From time to time, i-p-tel may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

i-p-tel also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. i-p-tel only discloses logged in user addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to i-p-tel’s websites choose to interact with i-p-tel in ways that require i-p-tel to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that i-p-tel gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with i-p-tel are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, i-p-tel collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with i-p-tel. i-p-tel 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.

Aggregated Statistics

i-p-tel may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. i-p-tel may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, i-p-tel does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

i-p-tel 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 i-p-tel’s behalf or to provide services available at i-p-tel’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 i-p-tel’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. i-p-tel 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, i-p-tel discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when i-p-tel believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of i-p-tel, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an i-p-tel service and have supplied your email address, i-p-tel may occasionally send you a message to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with i-p-tel 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. i-p-tel takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. i-p-tel currently does not use any cookies.

Business Transfers

If i-p-tel, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that i-p-tel 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 acquiror of i-p-tel may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

i-p-tel currently does not deliver any ads.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, i-p-tel may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in i-p-tel’s sole discretion. i-p-tel encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
