Terms Of Use

IPA Website Privacy Policy

The Institute for Polyacrylate Absorbents ("IPA") respects the privacy of all individuals who visit our Web site. The following policy is intended to explain how IPA uses personal and other information obtained by or provided to IPA from Web site users and visitors. Personal information includes, but is not limited to, name, street, postal and e-mail addresses, billing information, click-through activity, and any other personal information provided.

As a general matter, each time a visitor or user enters the IPA Web site, IPA’s Web site hosting company’s server collects basic technical information, including the visitor’s domain name, e.g., aol.com; referral data, e.g., the last URL a user visited prior to entering superabsorbents.com; and browser and platform type, e.g., Netscape browser or a Macintosh platform. IPA also tracks and aggregates visitor activity in an analysis of general traffic flow. This information may be aggregated into group data, which then may be shared on an aggregated basis with third parties but, unless otherwise provided for in this policy, IPA will not disclose individual identity or personal identifiable data without permission.

IPA collects the e-mail addresses of those who communicate with IPA via e-mail. IPA also tracks and retains in the aggregate this information, as well as information concerning Web site visitor traffic and any information provided by visitors in response to Web site surveys, Web site online registration forms, etc.

The information IPA collects is used to improve the content of the IPA Web site and IPA’s other member services. IPA may also use collected visitor information to notify members and other visitors about updates to the IPA Web site. Such information may be compiled and shared in the aggregate with other third parties, but no personal details are traceable or associated with specific individuals.

IPA also collects member firm and individual e-mail addresses during the membership update process. These e-mail addresses are used to send internal and external electronic communications, and legislative and business alerts.

If you do not want to receive e-mail from IPA in the future or wish to correct or change any information, please contact IPA below via e-mail, telephone or mail. Please be sure to provide IPA in this communication with your exact e-mail and/or postal address.

IPA utilizes cookies on its Web site so that members and other visitors may permanently store their customer information on their own computer in the contact information fields of the customer profile page. These cookies will help ease the ordering process by eliminating the need for customers to fill in their contact information each time they order a product from IPA. Only the customer name, mailing address, and e-mail, phone, and fax contact information will be stored on the customer’s desktop. Customer billing information (credit card number, type of credit card, expiration date) will not be stored.
