Information Collection and Use
iME does not collect personally-identifying information about you unless you voluntarily submit that information to us through this site, by email, or by other means. When you visit our website, we may automatically collect certain non-identifying information about you, such as the domain name that referred you to our site, the type of browser or computer operating system you use, and navigational information. We collect this non-identifying information internally, to help us analyze the effectiveness of and enhance usefulness of our marketing efforts.
Registration forms on our website require you to provide accurate contact information, which helps us deliver a high quality of service. Personally identifiable information that you provide (such as name, email address, telephone number) may be used to send you information about our company, product updates, special offers, and newsletters. To opt out of receiving communications from iME, please email email@example.com. To change or modify information previously provided, please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small file created on your computer by a Web server, which can be referenced when that website is visited. Cookies cannot access files or other information stored on your computer. There are two types of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are used during a single website visit and are automatically deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies are used to track website activity over a longer period, and remain on your computer until either you choose to delete them or they expire.
iME uses persistent cookies in several places on our website so we can pre-populate forms to improve your ease of use. For example, the information provided during a brochure download is captured so that you do not need to enter it again when requesting additional documents. iME may also use persistent cookies to collect analytical information about how visitors use our website. For example, we may measure website usage, access to online services, and the level of interest in particular products. We use this information to improve our service and provide a better experience for visitors to our website.
Do I have to accept cookies?
Depending on the Web browser you use, you may be able to configure it to accept session cookies but disable persistent cookies. If you do this, you will be able to use the iME website, but your browser will not remember your personal preferences when you return to the site (e.g. download forms will not be pre-filled).
If you use Microsoft Internet Explorer, Firefox or Netscape Navigator for Windows, you can follow the instructions in the toolbar on your browser to accept session cookies but disable persistent cookies.

iME may transfer personal information to a third party who provides services for iME, such as the distribution of our newsletter and other iME publications. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
