Your privacy is important to us. Individual information gathered by IPAF is only used to answer and process your inquiries. Individual information will not be used for commercial purposes nor shared with any other organization or third party, unless required to do so by law or regulators. You will not receive any email from IPAF simply as a result of visiting our site. Relations with our member organizations to which many pages link, are governed by their respective general terms and conditions.

However, it is pointed out that mail secrecy is not guaranteed on the Internet and that it is up to each Internet user to take all appropriate measures so as to protect his/her own data and/or software from corruption by any viruses that may be circulating on the Internet. IPAF takes appropriate steps to maintain the security of each user’s information on this site. Each Internet user should understand that the open nature of the Internet is such that data may flow over networks without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended. IPAF cannot guarantee that such communications will not be intercepted or changed or that they will reach the intended recipient safely.

How we use cookies

A cookie is a small, often encrypted, file of letters and numbers that we put on your computer if you agree. These cookies allow us to distinguish you from other users of the website, which helps us to provide you with a better experience when you browse our website.

Our website uses two session cookies. One is set by our content management system upon arrival to the IPAF site, and a second one is set when you log on as an IPAF member. Each visitor is assigned a random ID number so they can enter and leave the website without having to re-enter the same authentication information over and over.

These cookies are not used by IPAF for any purpose. Both cookies are deleted when a user closes their browser.
