We rely upon third parties for important elements of our operations so we will provide your nonpublic personal information, such as your name, address, and account information to these third parties so that they can do their job, such as servicers, financial service providers, marketing companies that help us market our products.

We may disclose or access information whenever we believe in good faith that the law so requires or if we otherwise consider it necessary to do so to maintain service and improve our products and services.

We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to manage our Web Site and to enhance our Site based on the usage pattern data we receive. ibox reserves the right to transfer any information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of business or assets to a third party.

Data Security

ibox uses robust security measures to protect data from unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and help ensure the appropriate use of data. Our technologies help ensure that data is safe, secure, and only available to the person to whom the information belongs and those to whom the person has granted access. We host our Site in a secure server environment that uses firewalls and other advanced technology to prevent interference or access from outside intruders. The personal information you provide is accessible only by appropriate staff, and is used only for the purposes for which you provide the information, such as to reply to your request or to send you requested materials.

Your account information and profile are password-protected. No password information is accessible by any staff at any time and passwords can only be reset. You should not divulge your password to anyone. Our personnel will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited E-Mail. Remember to sign out of your account and close your browser window when you have finished your session. This is to help 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 where others may have access to it.

Whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online (for example on message boards, through E-Mail or in chat areas) that information can be collected and used by others. No data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be perfectly secure. As a result, while we try to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

Our Site is not intended for children and we have no way of verifying the age of individuals who access our Site, and so we carry out the same Privacy Policy for individuals of all ages. If a child has provided us with personally-identifying information without parental or guardian consent, the parent or guardian should contact us to remove the information.
