Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.

Information We Collect
This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on Integrate NI or its affiliated publications Web site and applications for iPhone, iPad, iPod, and other devices and platforms, hereafter referred to as simply Integrate NI.

Integrate NI occasionally needs to collect information for convenience, practicality, or technical requirements. This information includes:

  • The type of device running the application (e.g. an iPhone 5), its platform version (e.g. iOS 6.0), and the version of Integrate NI in use (e.g. 1.0).
  • Your current subscription status and basic information, not including credit-card numbers or other payment details.
  • Anonymous usage statistics.

Like most Web sites, Integrate NI also collects and stores information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to visitors. For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider, your IP address, and information provided by and about your Internet browser. As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather similar information through other means. We may also use “cookie” technology for your convenience as we see fit, such as to keep you logged in between visits if we add a login feature.

We use Mailchimp to manage our mailing list. Mailchimp says this about its usage of information about our subscribers:

Your subscriber lists are stored on a secure MailChimp server. We don’t, under any circumstances, sell your lists, contact people on your lists, market to people on your lists, steal your lists, or share your lists with any other party, unless it’s required by law. If someone on your list complains or contacts us, we may then contact that person. Only authorized employees have access to view Distribution Lists. You may export (download) your lists from MailChimp at any time, as long as we have a copy.

This is an excerpt and you should read Mailchimp’s full privacy policy (which addresses both their relationship to us, as a user, and you indirectly as a subscriber) for further details.

How We Use Information
We use the information you provide to operate Integrate NI and to monitor what information is most sough after, to allow us to continue to provide content of interest,

We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to accomplish Integrate NI’s functionality.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design Integrate NI. For instance, we may make feature decisions based on the percentage of our readership reading certain articles.

We may also share non-identifying and aggregate statistics with potential future advertisers and partners. For instance, we may tell an advertiser or partner how many people visited a certain area on our website, used a certain feature of the website, or viewed a certain issue or article. When information is used in this or a similar manner, we do not disclose anything that could be used to identify the individuals on whom the information is based.

We may disclose your information in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or to defend against legal claims.

We may disclose your information when we believe it necessary or desirable in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our policies, and/or to protect our rights and property.

In the future, we may sell, buy, merge, or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets.

External Services
External services beyond Integrate NI’s control are integrated with Integrate NI where necessary, such as Google Analytics for traffic measurement and tracking. Integrate NI makes reasonable efforts to ensure that all integrated external services are trustworthy and reputable, but we cannot be held responsible for data collection and usage by such services.

Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Children’s Privacy
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.

How To Contact Us
Should you have other questions or concerns about these privacy policies, or to have any of your personally identifiable information deleted, please email with the details of your request. At this time, we only have the ability to receive and send English and Spanish-language communications.

Due to the nature of backups and logs, deleted data may persist in backups and logs until they are deleted.

Integrate NI reserves the right to change this policy at any time. Please check this page periodically for changes. Your continued use of Integrate NI following the posting of changes to this policy will mean you accept those changes.
