Our Committment to Your Privacy
Collection of personal information
ICC collects personal information for a variety of reasons, all geared towards serving you and making your customer experience as smooth as possible. We will not give or sell your information to any outside company for its use in marketing or solicitation. We will maintain the confidentiality of your personal information and it will be used only to support your customer relationship with ICC. Additionally, internal practices help protect your privacy by limiting employee access to and use of customer data. Information collected will not be used for other purposes other than what it was originally intended for.
When registering for the site, you will be asked to input a valid email address. You may, however, visit and use this site anonymously. The type of information we collect (typically all for ordering purposes) include:
- Company (if applicable)

- Shipping address
- Billing address (for credit card orders)
- Payment method and information

In any situation where we are asking for nonstandard personal information, we will explain why we need this information and keep it only as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected or as required by applicable laws or regulations.
Disclosure of personal information
Under normal circumstances, we do not share your personal information with any third-parties without first making you aware of why it might be necessary and obtaining your permission. ICC will only disclose your sensitive information without permission when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such actions are necessary to:
- Conform to the edicts of the law or comply with a legal process served on ICC
- Protect and defend the rights or property of ICC
- Identify persons who may be violating the law, the legal notice, or the rights of parties
- Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities.
ICC takes significant measures to protect all data collected, including a high level of encryption and nuermous external and internal security protocols. Having gone above and beyond any reasonable expectation to safeguard collected information, ICC shall not be held repsonsible or liable in the case of a malicious attack by a third-party that results in the theft of such information.
Is there any information that is collected automatically?
Yes, but this information does not reveal anything personal about you. Every computer connected to the Internet is provided with a domain name (e.g. someispname.net) and an IP address (e.g. 126.96.36.199). When a visitor requests a page from within the ICC website, our web servers and tracking protocols automatically identify and log the HTTP request that is made. By itself, this information reveals nothing personal about you. The information that we may collect automatically includes::
- Your IP Address
- The method that you used to reach our website (direct, search engine, referral from another site, etc.)
- Session information (pages visited, duration on site, etc.)
- Your browser type and version
- Your operating system
- Keywords / search terms that you may have used to reach our site
There is absolutely nothing special about the information just described, and the practice of collecting this data has been generally standardized by virtually every website on the Internet today. The purpose for this information is two-fold. First, ICC has found it advantageous to examine visitor traffic in its aggregate, so that we can ensure maximum compatibility for the various browsers and operating systems that visit our site. Second, as any business should attest, it is our desire to generate greater amounts of visitor traffic. By analyzing visitation patterns, referring URLs and search engine terms, we can strategically enhance our exposure on the Internet.
