Idaho Mining Association is committed to protecting the personal information that you provide and entrust to us when using our websites. This online privacy statement describes how we treat all user data collected by us during your visit, both technical data that is automatically collected and voluntarily submitted data.
What is personal information?
“Personal information” means information that specifically identifies an individual (such as a name, address, telephone number, mobile number, email address, or credit card number, or other contact and demographic information about that individual that is directly linked to personally identifiable information). Personal information does not include “aggregate” information, which is data we collect about the use of our sites, from which individual identities or other personal information has been removed. This statement does not restrict or limit our collection and use of aggregate information.
What personal information do we collect?
We collect two types of user data: (1) data that you voluntarily submit to us, and (2) technical data that is automatically collected from all visitors to our sites.
Voluntarily Provided Information: We collect certain information you voluntarily provide us, such as when you join or renew your membership, make a donation, sign up for our emails, send correspondence to government officials using our tools, participate in one of our online petitions or surveys, register online for an event, fill out a form, post blog comments or other content, or participate in any activity that requires your Voluntarily Provided Information.
In addition, we use a tool called Google Analytics to collect information about use of our sites. The data Google Analytics collects is presented to Idaho Mining Association in aggregate. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit our sites, what pages they visit, and what other sites they used prior to coming to our sites. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve our sites. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a Persistent Cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, this cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to
How do we use the personal information we collect?
We will not attempt to match any personally identifiable information that you provide to us with your IP address, unless there are reasonable grounds to believe that doing so would provide information that is relevant and material to a criminal investigation.
What personal information do we share with third parties?
We will not share the personal information we collect from you through our sites with third parties, except as described in this policy. For example, we may share personal information as follows:
- with vendors, consultants, and other service providers who work with us in connection with the operation of our sites or the services we provide and who need access to such information to carry out their work for us;
- when you give us your consent to do so, including if we notify you on our sites that the information you provide will be shared in a particular manner and you provide such information;
- in an aggregated or anonymized form that does not directly identify you;
- when we believe in good faith that we are lawfully authorized or required to do so or that doing so is reasonably necessary or appropriate to comply with the law or legal processes or respond to lawful requests or legal authorities, including responding to lawful subpoenas, warrants, or court orders;
- when we believe in good faith that we are lawfully authorized or required to do so or that doing so is reasonably necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of Idaho Mining Association, our users, our employees, copyright owners, third parties or the public, including without limitation to protect Idaho Mining Association or our users from fraudulent, abusive, inappropriate, or unlawful use of our sites;
- to enforce or apply this policy or our other policies or agreements; and
- in connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of organization assets, financing or acquisition, or in any other situation where personal information may be disclosed or transferred as one of the assets of Idaho Mining Association.
We are not responsible for the actions of service providers or other third parties, nor are we responsible for any additional information you provide directly to any third parties, and we encourage you to become familiar with their privacy practices before disclosing information directly to any such parties. Nothing herein restricts the sharing of aggregated or anonymized information, which may be shared with third parties without your consent.
