Privacy Policy

IIDM is committed to protecting your personal information. We set out below the following important information concerning your privacy:

Collection of Your Personal Information

When you register as a member of IIDM, we will collect details such as your name, organisation, email, job description (and related information). Some of that information is necessary for us to be able to accurately identify the users of our website. Other types of information enable us to profile the users of our particular service. Where designated, information of this type is optional - you do not need to fill it in if you don't wish to.

When you pay for goods or services online using a credit card or PayPal, we collect some additional necessary information, including billing address, credit card number and credit card expiration date. We process your credit card details securely over the Internet using an accredited internet payment security system.

We confirm that IIDM respects the necessity of confidentiality and security of information provided to it by its members and takes reasonable precautions to protect that information from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. However, we refer you to the section headed "Security of Your Personal Information" below relating to the security limitations applicable to online transactions.

Use of Your Personal Information

The personal information that you provide to us during registration is used for identification purposes and will assist you using various other services on our website. That information will also assist us to better provide services that tailor your needs. For instance, that information can assist us in finding which areas of the website are most popular.

Information Disclosure

As is required by Law, IIDM is not able to reveal, disclose, sell, distribute, rent, license, share or pass onto any third parties, other than those who are contracted to IIDM and any related entities, any personal information that you have provided to us, unless you have expressly consented for us to do so.

Security of Your Personal Information

Transmissions to and from the IIDM website are monitored for quality control. However, data transmission over the Internet can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Whilst we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot insure or warrant its security. Accordingly, these activities are conducted at your own risk.

Accessing, Correcting or Updating Your Personal Information

Information provided to us is kept in a secure environment accessed only by authorised persons. You will always have access to that information and content that you provide to us. You can easily edit your personal information - except for your credit cards details - by accessing the "Amend your details" screen, having previously entered your login information. Credit cards details can be easily updated by clicking on Contact Us and advising us.

Further Security

IIDM recommends that if you have finished your user session that you close your browser. This should be particularly the case if you are using a personal computer which is not owned by you, for example, use in an internet cafe.  Ultimately, the responsibility for security of your information is yours and ours. IIDM also recommends that its members use the various Links carefully.


Mirroring any content from the IIDM website is expressly prohibited without the prior written consent of IIDM.
