International Design Continuing Education Council Privacy Policy

The International Design Continuing Education Council Inc. ("IDCEC") is committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of the personal and business information of its members and users of this website (“you”), in accordance with applicable federal and provincial legislation and the legislation and by-laws governing IDCEC.

IDCEC does not collect your personal information through its website other than the information you voluntarily provide IDCEC through use of its website. Such information consists of your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and website address (URL). This information may be used by IDCEC in any one or more of the following ways:

IDCEC may use "cookies" which are placed on your computer from IDCEC's website, for the purpose of facilitating and managing your session. IDCEC does not collect personal information through "cookies," nor does IDCEC track individual use of its website in any specific way. IDCEC aggregates website user information and reports on aggregated usage, not on individual users.

Your IP address is gathered automatically by IDCEC’s server and may be used to monitor site traffic, to help diagnose problems with IDCEC’s server, or to administer IDCEC’s website.

If IDCEC requests general demographic information, this information is limited to reporting purposes only; members remain anonymous.

If you click on certain links and/or ad banners, you will be taken to third-party websites where you will be subject to third-party privacy policies. IDCEC cannot be responsible for such third-parties' actions. IDCEC encourages you to read the privacy policies of such third parties.

IDCEC will always protect the personal information that you share with us. IDCEC stores information in a controlled, secure environment. If, for example, you make a purchase online, we route all transactions through SSL (Secure Socket Layers) and will process your credit card number only to secure your current payment. The SSL transaction does not retain your credit card number subsequent to the transaction at hand.

You can take measures to protect yourself against fraud and uninvited intrusion. It is important that you protect your IDCEC unique ID number, which we require to identify you and authenticate your request to access your personal information. For instance, do not share this number with others unless you understand the purpose of the request and know who is asking.

Under no circumstances does IDCEC rent, sell or trade any of your personal information.

Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our website.

IDCEC reserves the right to modify IDCEC's Privacy Policy from time to time, and will post changes to our Privacy Policy so that you might be made aware of such changes.

By visiting IDCEC's Website you are accepting the terms of IDCEC's Privacy Policy. You can, of course, elect not to provide information, but in doing so you might not be able to receive the information described above.

You shall be given access at any time to the specific information about you that has been collected and retained by IDCEC.

Should you have any questions or concerns regarding IDCEC's Privacy Policy, feel free to direct them to bdmello@idcec.org. You may also send a letter to the International Design Continuing Education Council Inc., 405-4576 Yonge Street, Toronto, ON M2N 6N4 Attn: Web Master.
