Please read the following Terms and Conditions, including this Privacy Statement. Also, please note that these Terms and Conditions, including our policies concerning the use of your personal information, may change from time to time.

For each visitor to our web page, our web server automatically recognizes the host computer's address.

We collect the host computer's address. We also collect the email address of those who register at our site, those who communicate to us via an email message, elect to give us their email address from a form or survey on our site, and those who post messages to our bulletin board or chat areas. We aggregate information about which pages users access or visit, and collect information volunteered by the visitors, such as survey information and/or site registrations and the email addresses of people requesting our autoresponders.

Our primary goal in collecting personal information is to enable us to provide you, the user, with a customized experience within IBPA. We conduct research on our users' demographics, interests, and behavior based upon the information we collect. We do this to better understand and serve our users. Our research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis, and, occasionally, we share this aggregated data with advertisers or business partners.

We will not sell or trade your personal information to any list broker or direct mail advertisers. However, we do reserve the right to sell or trade your name and E-mail address to other companies, institutions, organizations or web sites which provide content, products, or services in the publishing industry. We also reserve the right to share your name, E-mail address and other publishing-related information with other companies, organizations, institutions or web sites which provide content, products or services in the publishing industry.

We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

You also agree that, in the event that IBPA is acquired by, merges with, or become aligned with another company or organization, such other company or organization shall be entitled to use your personal information under these Terms and Conditions.

IBPA may sometimes permit third parties to offer subscription and/or registration based services through IBPA.
