We do not collect any information that identifies you individually (“Personal Information”) unless we explicitly ask you and/or you choose to provide that information to us.
The specific items of Personal Information we collect depend on what you are seeking to do on our site. Generally, we ask for your contact information (e.g., first and last name, physical and/or email address, and telephone number), but we may ask for additional information in certain cases. For example, we may ask for your resume if you are submitting an employment application via our site, or we may ask for contact information of the person that referred you to us if you are submitting a business plan. If you are providing Personal Information of someone other than yourself, you must have permission from that person.
We will use your Personal Information only in connection with the activity for which you provided it to us and related functions. For example, if you provide Personal Information as part of submitting your business plan, we will use your Personal Information only in connection with evaluation of your business plan and any discussions or business relationship following from that submission. If you provide Personal Information as part of registering for an event, we will use your Personal Information only in connection with that event and potentially to invite you to future IQT events. We may share your Personal Information with contractors, third party service providers, our government customers, and our affiliates and successors as we think is necessary or appropriate for such purposes. We may also disclose your Personal Information to protect or enforce our legal rights or as required by law.
To operate our site, we collect certain usage information, including web pages visited, hyperlinks (if any) clicked, IP address, operating system, type of browser, and Internet service provider. We may review and analyze this information to evaluate and enhance our site, and may disclose this information, but we will do so only in aggregated or anonymized form, unless review, analysis or disclosure of specific information is necessary to protect or enforce our legal rights or is required by law.
