This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for the IDV Solutions web site located at http://www.idvsolutions.com/ (“the Site”).

Thank you for visiting the IDV Solutions Web site. Protecting consumer privacy is very important to us. Our Online Privacy Statement is designed to inform you about our online collection and use of personal information. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify this privacy statement at any time. Any modifications will be posted at this same location, and are effective immediately upon posting. Please review this statement periodically because continued use of the Site constitutes acceptance of the revised privacy statement.

Use and Security of Your Information
The Site uses a form that asks the user for contact information, including name, company name, e-mail address, zip code and phone number.

When you are on our Site and are asked for personally identifiable information, you are sharing that information with IDV Solutions alone, unless otherwise stated. The only contact (typically by phone or email) the user will receive from IDV Solutions is to follow up on business inquires regarding our products and services, respond to feedback, respond to requests for information or respond to a submitted resume. We may also use your comments to improve the Site.

When you visit our website, our computers may automatically collect statistics about your visit. This information does not identify you personally, but rather about a visit to our Site. We may monitor statistics such as how many people visit or Site, the user's IP address, which pages people visit, from which domains our visitors come and which browsers people use. We use these statistics about your visit for aggregation purposes only. These statistics are used to help us improve the performance and value of our Web site. We will keep any and all information collected at this Site strictly confidential and will not sell, trade or otherwise convey the identity, address or any other information, including personally identifiable information, regarding its users or viewers to outside parties. The information we collect is used to disseminate information directly to users who have requested such information and to improve the content of our Site. It is not shared with any other organizations for commercial purposes. This Site is not specifically targeted at children under the age of 13 and IDV does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from such children.

The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can email us at info@idvsolutions.com.

Use and Security of Your Information: Specific to IDV Blogs
The amount and type of information IDV receives from you depends on your use of the Blogs. You can visit the Blogs and read the information contained within the Blogs without revealing any personal information. When you do this, our computers may automatically collect statistics about your visit. This information does not identify you personally, but rather about a visit to our Blogs. We may monitor statistics such as how many people visit our Blogs, the user's IP address, which pages people visit, from which domains our visitors come and which browsers people use. We use these statistics about your visit for aggregation purposes only. These statistics are used to help us improve the performance and value of our Blogs. We will keep any and all information collected at the Blogs strictly confidential and will not sell, trade or otherwise convey the identity, address or any other information, including personally identifiable information, regarding its users or viewers to outside parties. The information we collect is used to disseminate information directly to users who have requested such information and to improve the content of our Blogs. It is not shared with any other organizations for commercial purposes.

You may also interact with the Blogs in a number of ways, including submitting comments, signing up for alerts, subscribing to an RSS feed, and sending a message. If you elect to interact with the Blogs, you may voluntarily provide personally identifiable information such as your name and e-mail address. Personal information, except information submitted as part of a comment, will be kept confidential as described above. However, because of the inherent nature of interacting with the Blogs, especially when posting comments, your confidential use of the Blogs cannot be guaranteed by IDV Solutions.

If you have any questions about security on our Blogs, you can email us at info@idvsolutions.com.

Disclosure of customer information and communications
IDV will not disclose its customers' personal information unless IDV has reason to believe that disclosing such information is necessary to identify, make contact with, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing harm or interfering with the rights or property of IDV, IDV's customers, or others, or where IDV has a good-faith belief that the law requires such a disclosure.

IDV may also disclose electronic customer communications when:
  • It is necessary to provide service to the customer;
