Additionally, some copies of your information (e.g., log records) may remain in our database, but are disassociated from personal identifiers.

Any payment details (credit card and/or bank account information) provided in print, email e-fax and/or verbal forms are processed immediately for said transaction and the personal payment data is never stored with IMAPS. Print, e-mail and e-fax forms are destroyed immediately upon processing the transaction and that data is never stored with IMAPS.

Volunteers and Board Members. We may share your information with our affiliates, subsidiaries and IMAPS volunteers and board members for purposes of conducting IMAPS’s internal business operations. IMAPS also makes publicly available the names, titles, country and business affiliations of officers, committee members and others who have assisted with initiatives or projects.
IMAPS Events. If you are an event attendee, speaker, or sponsor, certain items of your information may be included in the event roster, which will be publicly disclosed, and may also be shared with third-party event sponsors and exhibitors. Further, by registering and attending an IMAPS event, you agree irrevocably, with no compensation to you, that IMAPS or any third party who is acting on IMAPS’s behalf may create images, videos and/or sound recordings of you (“works”) at the event for marketing purposes. This grant of rights in the works also includes the rights to adapt, reproduce, distribute, perform, make available to the public, broadcast, retransmit or sublicense the works to IMAPS’s affiliates.

If you use our optional Career Center services (job boards), the information you include in your profile will be shared with our Career Center site vendor and will be subject to the vendor’s privacy policies. When you provide information in the Career Center, your information may be accessible to potential employers or recruiters. IMAPS will only share information about you with potential employers or recruiters if you consent in advance to our sharing of this information.
Response to Subpoenas, Court Orders, Government Requests or to Protect Rights and to Comply with Our Policies. To the extent permitted by law, we will disclose your information to government authorities or third parties if: (a) required to do so by law or regulation, or in response to a subpoena or court order or any other enforceable governmental request or order; (b) we believe in our sole discretion that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect against fraud, to protect the property or other rights of us or other users, third parties or the public at large; or (c) we believe that you have abused the Sites by using them to attack other systems or to gain unauthorized access to any other system, to engage in spamming or otherwise to violate applicable laws. You should be aware that, following disclosure to any third party, your information may be accessible by others to the extent permitted or required by applicable law.
Business Transfers; Bankruptcy. In the event of a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy or other sale of all or a portion of our assets, any user information owned or controlled by us may be one of the assets transferred to third parties. Unless you are residing in the European Economic Area, we reserve the right, as part of this type of transaction, to transfer or assign your information and other information we have collected from users to third parties. IMAPS will still ensure the confidentiality and security of any user information. Other than to the extent ordered by a bankruptcy or other court, the use and disclosure of all transferred user information will be subject to this Privacy Notice.
