To protect your privacy, we have adopted the following principles:
Where iProgrammer collects Personal Information on the web, we intend to post a purpose statement that explains why Personal Information will be collected and whether we plan to share such Personal Information outside of iProgrammer. iProgrammer does not intend to transfer Personal Information without your consent to third parties who are not bound to act on iProgrammer’s behalf unless such transfer is legally required.
You may choose whether or not to provide Personal Information to iProgrammer. The notice we intend to provide where iProgrammer collects Personal Information on the Web should help you to make this choice. If you choose not to provide the Personal Information we request, you can still visit most of iProgrammer’s Web pages, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers, and services that involve our interaction with you.
If you chose to have a relationship with iProgrammer, such as a contractual or other business relationship or partnership, we will naturally continue to contact you in connection with that business relationship.
Wherever your Personal Information may be held within iProgrammer or on its behalf, we intend to take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the Personal Information that you share with us from unauthorized access or disclosure.
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
All online credit card transactions are performed only on secure servers through a secure SSL connection.
To the extent that you do provide us with Personal Information, iProgrammer wishes to maintain accurate Personal Information. Where we collect Personal Information from you on the Web, our goal is to provide a means of contacting iProgrammer should you need to update or correct that Information. If for any reason those means are unavailable or inaccessible, you may send updates and corrections about your Personal Information to email@example.com and we will make reasonable efforts to incorporate the changes in your Personal Information that we hold as soon as practicable.
Information We Collect
Personally Identifiable Information is information that can be used to locate you, contact you, or determine your specific identity. When other information is linked to Personally Identifiable Information, it also becomes Personally Identifiable Information.
iProgrammer collects Personally Identifiable Information from you in several ways:
- When you register for the iProgrammer Service, we ask you for basic registration information, such as your name, company, address, email address, phone, fax, and other basic contact information.
- When you place an order or subscribe to a service through iProgrammer, we may collect the appropriate billing information, including your credit card number, expiration date, and billing address (“Billing Information”). This information is associated with your Registration Information in a database and will be kept for future purchases.
- We may ask you for voluntary personal information at other times, including but not limited to when you provide opinions, enter a contest or promotion, or report a problem with iProgrammer (“Optional Information”).
- When you submit a request for more information or assistance, iProgrammer will keep a record of the request and the manner in which it was processed (“Customer Service Information”).
In addition to the collection of Personally Identifiable Information, we may also automatically receive and record information in our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, your computer’s name, the type and version of your web browser, referrer addresses, and other generally-accepted log information. We may also record page views (hit counts) and other general statistical and tracking information. This information will not be not be associated with your Personally Identifiable Information.

Protecting your privacy online is an evolving area, and iProgrammer’s Web sites are constantly evolving to meet these demands.
