Privacy Policy
1 October 2014
The ISS maintains a  strict "no-spam" policy. Your personal information is used only by the  ISS. You can be certain that your e-mail address and other personal  details will never be passed on to any other party without your express permission.
Personal Information
We  do not collect any personal information from a visitor to our sites  unless that visitor explicitly and intentionally provides it. If you  are simply browsing our sites, we do not gather any personal  information about you.
There are two  ways in which you may explicitly and intentionally provide us with, and  consent to our collection of certain personal information:
  • Email subscriptions to ISS communications 
  • Registration for Seminars and Other Events
We  use links throughout our sites to provide you with the opportunity to  contact us via e-mail to ask questions, request information and  materials, register or sign up for seminars and events, or provide  comments and suggestions. To do so, we may request additional personal  information from you, such as your name and telephone number, to help  us satisfy your request.
If  you choose to subscribe to one of our products or services, we will  request certain information from you. Depending on the type of product  or service that you request, you may be asked to provide different  personal information.
Statistical Information About Your Visit
When  you visit our sites, our computers may automatically collect statistics  about your visit. This information does not identify you personally,  but rather about a visit to our sites. We may monitor statistics such  as how many people visit our sites, the user's IP address, which pages  people visit on our sites, from which domains our visitors reach our  sites, and which browsers people use. We use these statistics about  your visit for aggregation purposes only. These statistics are used to  help us improve the performance of our web sites. The ISS uses Google Analytics as the site monitoring tool.
Use of Cookies
A “cookie" is a piece of information that our web sites send to your  browser, which then stores this information on your system. A user will  be able to utilise our web sites without cookies. If a cookie is used,  our web sites will be able to “remember" information about you and your  preferences either until you exit your current browser window (if the  cookie is temporary) or until you disable or delete the cookie. Many  users prefer to use cookies in order to help them navigate a web site  as seamlessly as possible. You should be aware that cookies contain no  more information than you volunteer, and they are not able to “invade"  your hard drive and return to the sender with personal or other  information from your computer.
