Effective 4 October 2021
Interaction with the iris3.net site may involve the collection of user data, as described below.
The site does not sell your information.
The information that users provide— We collect two main types of information. The first is information that you voluntarily provide when you register for updates, newsletters and event alerts. This may also include personal data such as name, postal code, e-mail address, postal address and demographic information. The second type of information is collected anonymously as aggregated data, such as traffic patterns on the site (including the number of users visiting the site daily).
Automatic collection — When you interact with us through our site, we receive and store certain information about usage patterns. We may store this information and this information may be placed in a database that is owned and operated by affiliates, representatives or service providers. The domain owner can use this information and group it with others to track, for example, the total number of users visiting their site.
Aggregate Information — Aggregate information, such as information about the pages that are visited, is collected by various means. One of these uses the IP address, which is a number that is automatically assigned to the user’s computer whenever the user connects to the Internet. Web servers, that is, computers that “serve” web pages to users, automatically identify users’ computers through the IP addresses that mark them. When a user requests a page from our site, our servers register his/her IP address. The iris3.net site does not link the IP addresses to anything that identifies the person, so that although they are recorded, the user session remains anonymous to us. IP addresses are recorded for system management purposes only. In our constant effort to understand and best serve the users of our website, we can carry out research on the demographic characteristics, interests and behavior of our users, based on the information collected. This research may be conducted and analyzed on an aggregate and anonymous basis, and the aggregated data used may be shared with our affiliates, our representatives and our members. Aggregated user statistics can be disclosed to explain our goals, events and services to current and potential users, as well as to third parties for other lawful purposes.
