Third Party Privacy Policies
How We Use Your Personal Information
We may use your personal information with non-personal information that we have collected in a manner such that the end-product does not personally identify you or any other user of the Site. We may make your personal information non-personally identifiable by either combining it with information about other users (aggregating your personal information with information about other users), or by removing characteristics (such as your name or email address) that make the information personally identifiable. This process is known as de-personalizing your information. You grant us a royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable and fully transferable right and license to use your personal information in connection with the creation and development of analytical and statistical analysis tools relating to the use of the customer data we collect through the Site (the “Analytical Data”). We are expressly authorized to make any commercial use of the Analytical Data, including without limitation, sharing the Analytical Data with third parties, provided that we do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer from us any part of the Analytical Data that personally identifies any users.
Do Not Track
In compliance with California legislation, AB370, effective January 1, 2014, IFS’s practices in responding to “do not track” signals and collecting user information over time and across a network of websites when you visit the Site are as follows: We honor the request of “do not track” signals sent by your browser when you visit the Site. Additionally, IFS does not collect user information about your online activities over time and across different websites, or authorize third parties to do so.
IFS uses Google Analytics to help us learn about who visits the Site and what pages are being viewed.

Will we share your personal information with third parties?
Sharing Your Information
We use your personal information to process orders that you submit through the Site and complete transactions, handle your customer service questions or issues and send communications to you about promotions, updates, or special offers from IFS that may be of interest to you. The personal information uploaded by you through the Site will be shared only with authorized persons to whom you specifically grant access. IFS may also share the personal information we collect from you under the following circumstances, and in which case, you expressly authorize us to share your information as follows:
- Asset transfers. If we become involved in a merger, acquisition or other transaction involving the sale of some or all of IFS’s assets, user information, including personal information collected from you through your use of the Site, could be included in the transferred assets.

Additional Information You Should Know About Third Parties
What security measures do we take to safeguard your personal information?
IFS may collect personal information from you, in which case the personal information that you provide to us is stored on servers, which are located in secured facilities with restricted access, and protected by protocols and procedures designed to ensure the security of such information. In addition, we restrict access to personal information to IFS employees, independent contractors and agents who need to know this information in order to develop, operate and maintain the Site. However, no server, computer or communications network or system, or data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect user information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or through the use of the Site and you acknowledge and agree that you provide such information and engage in such transmissions at your own risk. Once we receive a transmission from you, we will endeavor to maintain its security on our systems.
In the event that personal information you provide to us is compromised as a result of a breach of security, when appropriate we will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation, notify you and take the necessary steps to comply with any applicable laws and regulations.
