Indigo DQM is committed to safeguarding your privacy
online. Please read the following policy to understand
how your personal information will be treated as you
make full use of our many offerings. This policy may
change from time to time so please check back periodically.
What personally identifiable information
do we collect from you?
Some personal information is gathered when you register.
During registration, we will ask for your name, address,
postal/zip code, email address, birth date, gender,
occupation, industry and personal interests. The more
information you volunteer (and the more accurate it
is), the better we are able to customise your experience.
Knowing that you use certain services or features
may help us to offer you better and more relevant
content and advertisements. But as with all personally
identifiable information, we do not make this available
to any third parties without your permission. Any
user statistics that we may provide to prospective
advertisers or partners regarding financial product
or service usage are provided in the aggregate only
and do not include any personally identifiable information
about any individual user.
Occasionally we ask users to complete surveys that
we use for research. Wherever we collect personal
information we make an effort to include a link to

This cookie is set when you register or "Sign
In" and is modified when you "Sign Out"
of our services.
(2) Estimate our audience size. Each browser accessing

used to determine the extent of repeat usage, usage
by a registered user versus by an unregistered user,
and to help target advertisements based on user interests
(3) Assist merchants in Indigo DQM to track visits

Advertising networks that serve ads onto Indigo DQM

Indigo DQM also collects IP addresses for system
administration and to report aggregate information
to our advertisers.
How does Indigo DQM use my information?
Our primary goal in collecting personal information
is to provide you, the user, with a customised experience
on our network of sites. This includes personalisation
services, interactive communications, online shopping
and many other types of services, most of which are
completely free to you. In order to provide services
free of charge, we display advertisements. By knowing
a little about you, Indigo DQM is able to deliver
more relevant advertisements and content, and hence
better service, to you.
You will only receive special offers via email from
Indigo DQM if you have indicated in your account preferences
that you would like to receive them. You can change
your account preferences at any time.
Indigo DQM does research on our users' demographics,
interests, and behaviour based on the information
provided to us upon registration, during a promotion,
or from our server log files. We do this to better
understand and serve our users. This research is compiled
and analysed on an aggregated basis.
Who is collecting information?
When you are on a Indigo DQM site and are asked for
personal information, you are sharing that information
with us alone, unless it is specifically stated otherwise.
If data is being collected and/or maintained by any
company, than you will be notified prior to the time
of the data collection or transfer. If you do not
want your data to be shared, you can choose not to
allow the transfer by not using that particular service.
Promotions that run on Indigo DQM may be sponsored
by companies other than Indigo DQM or may be co-sponsored
by another company. Some or all data collected during
a promotion may be shared with the sponsor. You can
decide not to participate in the promotion if you
don't want your data to be shared.
Please be aware that Indigo DQM advertisers or web
sites that have links on our site may collect personally
identifiable information about you. The information
practices of those web sites linked to Indigo DQM
are not covered by this privacy statement.
With whom does Indigo DQM share
As a general rule, we will not disclose any of your
personally identifiable information except when we
have your permission or under special circumstances,
such as when we believe in good faith that the law
requires it or under the circumstances described below.
The following describes some of the ways that your
information may be disclosed.
Business Partners & Sponsors: We may disclose
your personal information to business partners or
sponsors, but this is specifically described to you
prior to data collection or prior to transferring
the data. Details of shared use can be found in specific
Terms of Service.
Many promotions offer opportunities to request additional
information from sponsors. By requesting more information,
you give us permission to transfer your personal information
to the sponsor so they can fulfill your request. In
many instances, only your email address will be shared.
Stores & Shopping: If you make a purchase
from a store hosted by us, the information obtained
during your visit to those stores, and the information
you give such as your credit card number and contact
information, is provided to the merchants. This is
to enable transactions to take place.
Merchants stores have separate privacy and data collection
practices. We have no responsibility or liability
for these independent policies.
From time to time, you may be offered the opportunity
to receive materials or special offers from third
parties. If you opt-in to receive information from
these third parties, we will (with your permission)
share your name and email address with them.
Third Party Data & Data in the Aggregate:
Under confidentiality agreements, we may match user
information with third party data. Also, we may disclose
aggregated user statistics (for example, 45% of our
users are female) in order to describe our services
to prospective partners, advertisers, and other third
parties, and for other lawful purposes.
Other: We may also disclose account information
in special cases when we have reason to believe that
disclosing this information is necessary to identify,
contact or bring legal action against someone who
may be violating our Terms of Service or may be causing
injury to or interference with (either intentionally
or unintentionally) our rights or property, other
users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such
activities. We may disclose or access account information
when we believe in good faith that the law requires
it and for administrative and other purposes that
we deem necessary to maintain, service, and improve
our products and services.
What are my choices regarding
collection, use, and distribution of my information?
Indigo DQM may, from time to time, send you email
regarding our products and services. In addition,
if you indicated upon registration that you are interested
in receiving offers or information from us and our
partners, we may occasionally send you e-mail about
products and services that we feel may be of interest
to you. Only Indigo DQM (or agents working on behalf
of us and under confidentiality agreements) will send
you these direct mailings and only if you indicated
that you do not object to these offers.
On some types of promotions, we will ask for your
email address in order to update you on your score,
entries, and status in prize drawings. When you participate
in these types of promotions, you automatically receive
promotion-related email, unless you choose the no-email
option that some promotions offer. Occasionally these
promotion-related email messages may include targeted

in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration
of my information?

We recommend that you do not divulge your password
to anyone. We will never ask you for your password
in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited
email. Also remember to sign out of your account and
close your browser window when you have finished your
work. This is to ensure that others cannot access
your personal information and correspondence if you
share a computer with someone else or are using a
computer in a public place.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet
can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result,
while we strive to protect your personal information,
we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information
you transmit to us or from our online products or
services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we
receive your transmission, we make our best effort
to ensure its security on our systems.
Please note that there are several places where you
can transmit credit card information in order to complete
a purchase transaction or for verification purposes.
Any time we ask for a credit card number we transmit
that credit card number in an encrypted format. We
use industry-standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption.

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily
disclose personal information online - for example
on message boards, through email, or in chat areas
- that information can be collected and used by others.
In short, if you post personal information online
that is accessible to the public, you may receive
unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining
the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information.
