Privacy Policy
If you have any concerns about the security or privacy of you personal identifiable information on the ISTS Web site, please contact us.

General Principles
We have the following privacy policy in order to demonstrate our commitment to protecting your privacy. We hope that the following information will show you how we gather, use and protect your personal data. We aim to ensure that the processing of personal data by or on behalf of ISTS is fair and reasonable and that your personal data is secure, accurate and up to date.

Information ISTS Collects
ISTS collects information about our users, suppliers and other individuals it deals with in its day to day business. This information includes contact, registration and payment details and information about the way registered users use our services. It is used to administer and to support, improve and obtain feedback on ISTS services. We also collect this information to prevent and detect breaches of ISTS network security, the law or our contract terms.

Like many Web sites, the ISTS Web site servers use log files. These logs record aggregate (non-personally identifiable) information about site usage such as Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser types, Internet service providers, referring/exit pages, pages accessed, platform types, date/time stamps, times of use, numbers of clicks, using domain name of websites from which you linked to our site, and country/state. This information is necessary to analyze trends, administer the Web site, balance web traffic, evaluate users' electronic browsing in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We do not normally link IP addresses to personally identifiable information. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce the terms of our license agreement, or to protect our service or site. The personal information you provide will be kept confidential and used only to support your interactions with ISTS.

Links to Other Sites
ISTS may provide links to an external Web site. These links are for information purposes only. When you click on such a link, another window will open, signifying that you are leaving ISTS content. The privacy policy of the external Web site is in effect. ISTS makes every effort to make sure that the site you are linking to is a source of accurate and/or relevant information. ISTS neither controls nor makes an endorsement of any kind regarding the external site. We are not responsible for the content, security, or privacy practices employed by other sites.

We commit to use security procedures to protect personal information you submit to us from misuse or unauthorized disclosure. At ISTS, the information is stored in a secure database behind an electronic firewall and is password-protected.

ISTS makes every effort to safeguard your personal information. However, like other Internet sites, we cannot guarantee that it is completely secure from people who might attempt to evade security systems and measures or intercept transmissions over the Internet.

ISTS cannot completely ensure the privacy of e-mail communication to and from our site because they are not encrypted and, therefore, not secure. These communications, like most Internet e-mail, could be intercepted without your knowledge and permission, while in transit to or from our site. This includes e-mail you send to us through various mailboxes, and URL information e-mailed from our site to others using the "e-mail to a colleague" feature. If you are concerned about your privacy, we suggest that you do not use e-mail to communicate information to us that you consider sensitive.

Transfer of Data to Third Parties
Unless you expressly agree, ISTS does not sell or rent your personal data. If we sell a business division to another company and your personal data is used by that business then your data may be transferred to the buyer along with the business for them to use in the same way.

Member Forum
Material you post on interactive forums within the ISTS service will be available to others using or considered using the Service. If you are concerned about privacy, use caution when participating in the member forum. The discussion board is open to all subscribers. As a result, others using this area on our site can read your posts. Any information you include when participating in the member forum is available to all other subscribers. For example, if you include your e-mail address in a message you post in the member forum, it is available to all subscribers.

ISTS does not collect information posted on our discussion board. Questions posted are recorded in the form of discussion transcripts, which are made available on our site. ISTS has provided a way for subscribers to post messages anonymously.

The member forum is monitored. ISTS reserves the right to remove any posts we feel are inappropriate.

Use of Cookies
The Industry Sales Tax site does not save sensitive data with the use of cookies.

We encourage you to visit our site occasionally to learn about any changes in our Privacy Policy. Although we reserve the right to modify or supplement this privacy policy, we will provide notice to you on this Web site of any major changes.
