INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
We collect two types of information about website visitors: (1) personally identifiable information (things like your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, etc.) which you have voluntarily submitted to us, and (2) aggregate information (such as how many visitors log on to our sites, the pages they access, etc.). In general, you can visit this website without telling us who you are or revealing personal information. You may need to voluntarily provide some information to participate in certain promotions and surveys, to receive information, to update your contact information, to submit nominations for awards, or to submit inquiries. We collect, maintain, and use personal information you have voluntarily submitted to contact you, to respond to your comments or requests for information, and to provide the most helpful services to meet your needs. To better meet your needs, we may supplement the information we collect with data obtained from third parties for the same purposes. All personally identifiable information (PII) is stored and transmitted via secure systems and networks using currently accepted standards.
IHC does not collect financial information using this website. For this reason, we do not process applications, re-enrollment forms, or financial aid forms online, though you may download the appropriate forms from this website. This website allows individuals to donate to IHC, register for class reunions, join the IHA/IHC Athletic Booster Club, and purchase IHC-related goods and services using PayPal (R) or JustGive.org, both of which meet the requirements of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). IHC does not handle or maintain any credit card information on its servers.
WEBSITE USAGE DATA

IHC uses technical and organizational security precautions to protect your data from manipulation, loss, destruction, or access by unauthorized persons. All connections to other protected networks use secure connections with the end-points also secured.
Proper monitoring systems and log storage are in place to ensure that a system compromise can be detected and information can be provided to proper authorities. Appropriate anti-virus and spy-ware software is installed on all servers, is set up to scan at appropriate intervals, and notifies our network administrator if there are any issues. Regular software maintenance is performed to install all security related patches or upgrades.
