to protecting your privacy. We hope that the following information will
show you how we gather, use and protect your personal data. We aim to
ensure that the processing of personal data by or on behalf of ISTS is
fair and reasonable and that your personal data is secure, accurate and
up to date.
Information ISTS Collects
ISTS collects information about our users, suppliers and other individuals
it deals with in its day to day business. This information includes contact,
registration and payment details and information about the way registered
users use our services. It is used to administer and to support, improve
and obtain feedback on ISTS services. We also collect this information
to prevent and detect breaches of ISTS network security, the law or our
Like many Web sites, the ISTS Web site servers use log files. These logs
record aggregate (non-personally identifiable) information about site
usage such as Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser types, Internet
service providers, referring/exit pages, pages accessed, platform types,
date/time stamps, times of use, numbers of clicks, using domain name of
websites from which you linked to our site, and country/state. This information
is necessary to analyze trends, administer the Web site, balance web traffic,
evaluate users' electronic browsing in the aggregate, and gather broad
demographic information for aggregate use. We do not normally link IP
addresses to personally identifiable information. We can and will use
IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce
the terms of our license agreement, or to protect our service or site.
The personal information you provide will be kept confidential and used
only to support your interactions with ISTS.
Links to Other Sites
ISTS may provide links to an external Web site. These links are for information
purposes only. When you click on such a link, another window will open,
external Web site is in effect. ISTS makes every effort to make sure that
the site you are linking to is a source of accurate and/or relevant information.
ISTS neither controls nor makes an endorsement of any kind regarding the
external site. We are not responsible for the content, security, or privacy
practices employed by other sites.
We commit to use security procedures to protect personal information you
submit to us from misuse or unauthorized disclosure. At ISTS, the information
is stored in a secure database behind an electronic firewall and is password-protected.
ISTS makes every effort to safeguard your personal information. However,
like other Internet sites, we cannot guarantee that it is completely secure
from people who might attempt to evade security systems and measures or
intercept transmissions over the Internet.
ISTS cannot completely ensure the privacy of e-mail communication to and
from our site because they are not encrypted and, therefore, not secure.
These communications, like most Internet e-mail, could be intercepted
without your knowledge and permission, while in transit to or from our
site. This includes e-mail you send to us through various mailboxes, and
URL information e-mailed from our site to others using the "e-mail
to a colleague" feature. If you are concerned about your privacy,
we suggest that you do not use e-mail to communicate information to us
that you consider sensitive.
Transfer of Data to Third Parties
Unless you expressly agree, ISTS does not sell or rent your personal data.
If we sell a business division to another company and your personal data
is used by that business then your data may be transferred to the buyer
along with the business for them to use in the same way.
Material you post on interactive forums within the ISTS service will be
available to others using or considered using the Service. If you are

forum. The discussion board is open to all subscribers. As a result, others
using this area on our site can read your posts. Any information you include
when participating in the member forum is available to all other subscribers.
For example, if you include your e-mail address in a message you post
in the member forum, it is available to all subscribers.
ISTS does not collect information posted on our discussion board. Questions
posted are recorded in the form of discussion transcripts, which are made
available on our site. ISTS has provided a way for subscribers to post
The member forum is monitored. ISTS reserves the right to remove any posts
