Privacy Policy – IC Group LP

EFFECTIVE: May 25, 2018

We respect your privacy. This Policy sets out our privacy practices and explains how we handle the information we collect when you visit and use our websites and Services. When you use our Services (as defined below), you are agreeing to the collection, transfer, storage, disclosure, and other uses of your information as set out in this Privacy Policy. Privacy is important, so please read it carefully.

If you have feedback or suggestions on how to make our Privacy Policy better, please email us at privacy@icgrouplp.com.

At IC Group LP (“IC Group”, “ICG”), we respect and protect the privacy of visitors to our website (together with the other websites we own and control, the “IC Group Websites”), and our customers who use our promotional solutions, platforms, and other services (together with the IC Group Websites, the “Services”). This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) explains how we collect and use visitors’ and customers’ information, particularly personal information, as part of the Services. The information IC Group collects and uses is limited to the purpose for which customers engage IC Group and other purposes expressly described in this Policy. Any discussion of your use of the Services in this Policy is meant to include your visits and other interactions with the IC Group Websites, whether or not you are a user of IC Group’s other services.

Important note to consumers entering ICG managed or hosted promotions:

Where we administer a promotion on behalf of a third-party promotion sponsor (“Sponsor”), we may receive information about you from (or on behalf of) that Sponsor. When we obtain your information in connection with a promotion, it will be provided under data protection agreements. We will only use your information as instructed by the Sponsor, and only in accordance with the Sponsor’s Privacy Policy. If you have a question about how a Sponsor uses your personal information, would like to correct inaccurate information, or would like to opt out of future communication with that Sponsor, please contact that Sponsor directly.

Where IC Group is the sponsor of a promotion, we may collect some personal information directly from you. The information that we collect may include your name, e-mail address, and social media handle. To fulfill certain prizes, we may require additional information from you. We will use the information collected from you only for the purpose of administering the promotion, and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

What do we mean by personal information?

In this Policy, “personal information” means information or an information set that identifies or could be used by or on behalf of IC Group to identify an individual. Except as described in this Policy, IC Group will not give, sell, rent, or loan any personal information to any third party.

Personal information does not include “Usage Data” which we define as encoded or anonymized information or aggregated data we collect about a group or category of Services, features, or users which does not contain personally identifying information. Usage Data helps us understand trends in usage of the Services so that we can better consider new features or otherwise tailor the Services. In addition to collecting and using Usage Data ourselves, we may share Usage Data with third parties, including our customers, partners, and Services providers for various purposes. This includes helping us better understand our customers’ needs, improving the Services, as well as for advertising and general marketing purposes. We do not share Usage Data with third parties in a way that would enable them to identify you personally.

How do we collect, use, and share your personal information and other information?

Protection of information

IC Group is committed to ensuring the security of your personal information.

These technologies, procedures, and other measures are used in an effort to ensure that your data is safe, secure, and only available to you and to those you authorized to access your data. However, no Internet, email, or other electronic transmission is ever fully secure or error-free, so you should take care in deciding what information you send to us in this way.
