PRIVACY POLICY

iON Cameras Limited (“iON”, “we” or “our”) is committed to protecting your privacy. iON provides this Privacy Policy to inform you of our policies and procedures regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information we receive from users of iON’s websites at www.ioncamera.com and any other website for which iON owns the domain registration (the “Site”), products, Content, online or mobile applications, software, hardware or other services (collectively the “Service”). Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy, terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our iON Terms of Service, accessible at https://uk.ioncamera.com/terms.

iON reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify this Privacy Policy at any time and without prior notice. If we modify these this Privacy Policy, we will notify you of any material changes by posting the new Privacy Policy to the Site. We will also update the “Last Update Date” at the top of this Privacy Policy. You are advised to consult this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes. By continuing to access or use the Site or the Service after we have posted a modification on the Site or have provided you with notice of a modification, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy as modified.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY, THEN YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO ACCESS OR USE THE SITE, SERVICE OR CONTENT. If you accept or agree to this Privacy Policy on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to this Privacy Policy and, in such event, “you” and “your” will refer and apply to that company or other legal entity.

As used in this Privacy Policy, the terms “using” and “processing” information include using cookies on a computer, subjecting the information to statistical or other analysis and using or handling information in any way, including, but not limited to collecting, storing, evaluating, modifying, deleting, using, combining, disclosing and transferring information within our organization or among our affiliates within the United States or internationally.

INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE

We mainly use your Personal Information (defined below) to improve and personalize our Site and Service, to administer your membership and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Site

TYPES OF INFORMATION COLLECTED

There are two types of information collected by iON: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.

Personally Identifiable Information Personally Identifiable Information (“Personal Information”) is information that identifies you as an individual, such as your name, mailing address, email address, age range, etc. Personal information is only obtained when you voluntarily provide the information to us. Examples of how iON may collect Personal information from you include, but are not limited to:

  • When you register an account with iON;
  • When you enter an iON-sponsored contest and/or accept a prize;
  • When you make a purchase via the Site;
  • When you download content, apps, software or software updates from the Site;
  • When you seek customer support, technical assistance or otherwise contact us;
  • When you use iON Services provided online, by way of your mobile device or iON software;
  • When you subscribe to newsletters, promotions, alerts, updates or other materials from iON.

If you choose to make a purchase via the Site, our third party payment processor service providers may also collect billing information such as your credit card number or billing address.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Non-Personally Identifiable Information (“Non-Identifying Information”) is information that does not identify you as an individual, such as your browser type, iON camera serial number, IP Address and/or the URL of the previous web site you visited. iON may automatically collect certain types of Non-Identifying Information from you when using the Site. We may also collect Non-Identifying information that you voluntarily provide, such as information included in response to a questionnaire or survey.

We use your Personal Information (in some cases, in conjunction with your Non-Identifying Information) mainly to provide the Service, complete your transactions and administer your inquiries.

Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified. But the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other Non-Identifying Information (for example, your viewing preferences). We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from other iON Users (defined below) to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of the Service and to analyze and understand how our Site and Service are used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically, for instance to deliver a service to you according to your preferences or restrictions.

We also use your Personal Information to contact you with iON newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information (“Marketing Information”) that may be of interest to you.

OPT-OUT

If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive Marketing Information from us, please follow the opt-out or unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications or update your “Settings” information. (See “Changing or Deleting Information” below.).

PROMOTIONS

From time to time we may provide you the opportunity to participate in surveys, promotions, contests or sweepstakes (collectively, “Promotion” or “Promotions”) through the Site. If you participate, we will request certain Personal Information from you. Participation in these Promotions is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. We use this information to administer your participation in each Promotion.

Occasionally, we may offer these Promotions together with another party, or we may use a third party service provider to help us conduct the Promotions. In order to administer the Promotions and/or provide the winner(s) with a prize, we may need to share your Personal Information with a third party who is helping us conduct the Promotion or co-sponsoring the Promotion with us. We will notify you within the Official Rules of the Promotion if another party is co-sponsoring the Promotion with us. If we are using a third party service provider, the third party service provider will be prohibited from using your Personal Information for any other purpose.

LOG DATA

When you visit the Site, whether as a registered member or a non-registered user just browsing (any of these, a “iON User”), our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s browser type or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Site, pages of our Site that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our Site, access times and dates, and other statistics. We use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Site and the Service and for the Site’s technical administration, to increase our Site’s functionality and user-friendliness, and to better tailor it to our visitors’ needs. We also use this information to verify that visitors to the Site meet the criteria required to process their requests.

COOKIES AND PIXEL TAGS

Like many websites, we use “cookies” to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer’s hard disk for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies for two purposes. First, we utilize persistent cookies to save your username and password for future logins to the Site. Second, we utilize session ID cookies to enable certain features of the Site and to better understand how you interact with the Site. Unlike persistent cookies, session cookies are deleted from your computer when you log off from the Site and Service and then close your browser. Third party advertisers on the Site may also place or read cookies on your browser. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of the Site or all functionality of the Service.

We may also use “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs” or similar means (individually or collectively “Pixel Tags”) in connection with our Service to collect usage, demographic and geographical location data. A Pixel Tag is an electronic image, often a single pixel that is ordinarily not visible to users and may be associated with cookies on a user’s hard drive. Pixel Tags allow us to count users who have visited certain pages of the Site, to deliver branded services and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns.

MESSAGING VIA AN iON ACCOUNT

As part of the Service, iON members may communicate with other iON members through use of their accounts. iON members may send a message to other members by selecting the “Send Msg” icon in an iON member profile.

PHISHING

Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to iON. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your username, password or credit card or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication. For more information about phishing, visit the Federal Trade Commission’s website.

INFORMATION SHARING AND DISCLOSURE

iON Members . When you register to create an Account and become a Member, your will submit your Personal Information to create a profile webpage, iON users will see your username. You can choose what other Personal Information you provide as part of your profile (“Other Member Information”). Providing Other Member Information is voluntary and should correlate with the degree of interaction you want to have with iON Users. We recommend that you guard your anonymity and sensitive information and that you not use your real name as your username, since that would allow others to identify you. Please note that you have no expectation of privacy vis-à-vis any User Content you provide and make available via the Site and Service.

Aggregate Information and Non-Identifying Information . We may share aggregated information that does not include Personal Information and we may otherwise disclose Non-Identifying Information and Log Data with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other purposes. Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain your Personal Information.

Service Providers . We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Site-related services (e.g., without limitation, maintenance services, database management, web analytics and improvement of the Site’s features) or to assist us in analyzing how our Site and Service are used. These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.

Distribution of User Content . We may provide your User Content (defined in the iON Terms of Service) that you submit to us to third parties for distribution on third party distribution channels selected by us. In such instances, although we will not provide your Personal Information to the third parties separately along with your User Content, if there is any information about you in the User Content (including, but not limited to, you being identifiable in a video you upload to the Site), that information could be Personal Information that will be provided to the third party and may be virally distributed via the third party distribution channels.

Other Corporate Entities . We may disclose information (including Personal Information) about you to our Affiliates in the United States and internationally. For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “Affiliates” means any person or entity which directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by or is under common control with iON, whether by ownership or otherwise. Any information relating to you that we provide to our Affiliates will be treated by those Affiliates in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement . iON cooperates with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of iON or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, any illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.

Business Transfers . iON may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets, including your Personal Information, in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets or in the event of bankruptcy. Should such an event occur, we will require that the new or combined entity follow this Privacy Policy with respect to your Personal Information. If your Personal Information will be used contrary to this Privacy Policy, you will receive prior notice in as provided herein.

SNS . The Service gives you the option to share information contained in your Account with certain social networking services (i.e. Twitter and Facebook). iON will not share your Account information, which may contain your Personal Information, with such social networking services unless you expressly authorize such disclosure.

CHANGING OR DELETING YOUR INFORMATION

All members may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information in their profile by contacting us or by updating the “Settings” and “Profile” areas of the Site. If you completely delete all such information, then your account may become deactivated. If you would like us to delete your record in our system, please contact us at support@ion-america.com with “Privacy” as the subject line of the email with a request that we delete your Personal Information from our database. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to honor your request. We may retain an archived copy of your records as required by law or for legitimate business purposes.

SECURITY

We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored “personal data” (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting on this Site in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, insofar as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, iON cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or Service, and you do so at your own risk.

INTERNATIONAL TRANSFER

Your information may be transferred to – and maintained on – computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. If you are located outside the United States and choose to provide information to us, iON transfers Personal Information to the United States and processes it there. Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.

SAFE HARBOR

iON’s US entities abide by the Safe Harbor framework set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, disclosure and retention of Personal Information collected from the European Union. To learn more about the Safe Harbor program, please visit: http://www.export.gov/safeharbor/.

LINKS TO OTHER SITES

Our Site may contain links to other websites. If you choose to visit an advertiser by “clicking on” a banner ad or other type of advertisement, or click on another third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s website. The fact that we link to a website or present a banner ad or other type of advertisement is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other sites follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.

OUR POLICY TOWARD CHILDREN

If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her minor child under 18 has provided us with Personal Information without their consent, he or she should contact us at support@ion-america.com. If we become aware that a person under 18 has provided us with Personal Information, we will delete such information from our files.
