We value the trust of those we deal with, and of the public, and recognize that maintaining this trust requires that we be transparent and accountable in how we treat the information that you choose to share with us.

Defining Personal Information
Personal information is any information that can be used to distinguish, identify or contact a specific individual. This information can include an individual's opinions or beliefs, as well as facts about, or related to, the individual.
Business contact information and certain publicly available information, such as names, addresses and telephone numbers as published in telephone directories, are not considered personal information.
Where an individual uses his or her home contact information as business contact information as well, we consider that the contact information provided is business contact information, and is not therefore subject to protection as personal information.
Use of Information
The information we collect helps us to maintain our contact/member files and mailing lists, track industry trends and program usage in order to evaluate and improve our member services. The information also helps to ensure that we can advise individuals of news and upcoming events that may be of interest to them. In addition, we may use our contact/client lists to conduct surveys and gather member feedback. Ideavibes does not hold onto credit card information. In the case of subscription sales, these transactions are handled by Beanstream. Individual personal information is never disclosed, shared with a third party or used for any purposes other than described above.
Personal information gathered by our organization is kept in confidence. Our personnel are authorized to access personal information based only on their need to deal with the information for the reason(s) for which it was obtained. We also take measures to ensure that the integrity of this information is maintained and that it is protected from loss or destruction.
We collect, use and disclose personal information only for purposes that a reasonable person would consider appropriate in light of the circumstances. At any time, individuals whose information we maintain can request to be removed from our list(s) and/or system(s) with the expectation that their information will be removed and our organization will cease to contact them.
