Collection of personal information
As a visitor to this Site, you can engage in many activities without providing any personal information. In connection with other activities, such as utilizing online subscription order forms or hosted Products and Services, IKCS may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting a form. It is optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, IKCS may ask that you provide personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including ZIP code), country of residence, e-mail address, telephone, and other personal information. When ordering Products and Services via the Site, you may be asked to provide a credit card number. Depending upon the activity, some of the information that we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity. Similarly, if you wish to delete your information that is mandatory, you will no longer be able to engage in a particular activity or log in to access data under My Account.
By using this Site and the Products and Services, you agree and acknowledge that personal information collected through the Site or in connection with the Products and Services may be transferred across IKCS offices. You also acknowledge that under certain circumstances or with respect to certain activities, the collection, transfer, storage, and processing of your information may be undertaken by trusted third parties. Such third parties are bound by contract with IKCS not to use your personal information for their own purposes or provide it to any third parties. One instance where this could occur is in conjunction with the preparation for mailing of magazine or the shipment of campaign products.
In order to reduce errors in our database, authenticate our users, prevent abuse of our Site and the Products and Services, and provide more consistent, relevant experiences to our users, we may on occasion supplement the personal information you submit to us with information from third-party sources. For example, if permitted under applicable law, we may supplement your Registration Information with address information provided by the U.S. Postal Service to qualify your information and prevent errors in our database. As permissible, we may also supplement the information you provide to us with demographic and other information (such as age or interest in travel, design or photography) stored in third-party databases in order to make it more likely that marketing communications we send will be of interest to you.
How your personal information is used
IKCS collects your information in order to record, support and facilitate your participation in the activities you select. If you subscribe to a magazine title or newspaper, for example, the information is used to mail printed copies of the item and offer other benefits that may be made available to registered users. As another example, if you enter a contest, information is collected to qualify the entry and to contact you regarding the contest or prize awards. Your personal information is also used to track customer preferences and keep you informed about special offers, and other products and services of IKCS and selected third parties unless you have opted not to receive such communications or such communications are prohibited by law.
IKCS may collect information about the use of the Products and Services and the Site, such as the number of downloads, types of Services used, how many users we receive daily, and the IP/Internet address of your computer. This information is collected in aggregate form, without identifying any user individually.
IKCS may use this aggregate, non-identifying statistical data for improving the Site and the Products and Services, providing more relevant experiences to our customers and for statistical analysis.
Your choices with respect to personal information
There are other instances in which IKCS may divulge your personal information, such as where required by law, regulation, or litigation. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that such disclosure should be made for reasons of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance.
Protection of your personal information

In addition, your Registration Information resides on secure servers that only selected IKCS personnel and contractors have access to via password. IKCS encrypts your personal information and thereby strives to prevent unauthorized parties from viewing such information when it is transmitted to IKCS.
Personal information that you provide that does not constitute Registration Information also resides on secure servers and is accessible only to selected IKCS personnel and contractors via password.
