Our web servers automatically capture your domain name, the IP address of the web page from which you enter our Service, browser type, the pages you visit on our Service, the amount of time you spend here and other relevant information about your visit.  We do not collect any information that can reveal your personal identity unless you voluntarily provide it when you register to use interactive features of our Service.  The information we collect is not part of any designated record set.

If applicable, this information would include the categories of Personal Information and the names and addresses of those businesses with which we shared such personal information for the immediately prior calendar year (e.g., requests made in the current year will receive information about the prior year).

Use of the Information this Service Gathers/Tracks

Any personally identifiable information you give us will be used only as permitted by law, including to provide the product, service or information you have requested, or to support the programs for which you registered.  Unless you specifically consent to let us do so, your personally-identifiable information, including your e-mail address, will not be sold, rented, licensed, or otherwise shared with third parties, other than business partners as appropriate to fulfill a request from you.

The non-personally identifiable information we gather in aggregate form may be used to improve our Service, and we may share that information with business partners, third-party vendors working on our behalf, or our health and wellness sponsors.

Information that you voluntarily provided will be maintained as long as IHA deems appropriate to fulfill the purpose for which you provided the information, until you request us to remove it, or for as long as permitted under applicable law.


Third Party Analytics Providers and Ad Servers

We may use third-party vendors to perform certain services on behalf of us or our Service, such as hosting our Service, designing and/or operating our Service’s features, tracking our Service’s activities, utilization of sharing technology that allows users to share content on this Site through social media, and analytics.  We may provide these vendors with access to user information or they may directly collect your information to carry out the services they are performing for you or for us.  Third-party analytics and other service providers may set and access their own tracking technologies on your device and they may otherwise collect or have access to information about you, potentially including personal information, about you.  We are not responsible for those third party technologies or activities arising out of them.

We may also work with certain third parties to provide us with information regarding traffic on our Service to serve advertisements elsewhere online, and to provide us with information regarding the use of our web site or services and the effectiveness of our advertisements.  These third parties may automatically collect information about you using their own cookies or other technologies, or may otherwise collect or have access to, information about your visits to this and other web sites, your IP address, your ISP, the browser you use to visit our web site and other usage information.  Information collected may be used, among other things, to deliver advertising targeted to your interests and to better understand the usage and visitation of our web site and the other sites tracked by these third parties.


Cookies Policy and Statement

When you visit our Service, we may place a temporary “session” or a permanent cookie on your computer that will allow us to customize and enhance your experience at our Service, make improvements to our Service, or to report Service activity.  Our session cookies are not permanently stored on your computer and expire when you leave.  Permanent cookies are issued to Service visitors who link our Service from a search engine and are used only to permit IHA to attract qualified users to our Service.  Our cookies are not used to send spam.  We store cookie information in aggregate form and use the aggregate information to make improvements to our Service or in internal reports on Service activity.  You may opt out of allowing cookies to be placed on your computer.  Refusing cookies disables our ability to include information about your visit in our regular monitoring of Service traffic.


What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a small amount of data sent from a web server to your browser and stored on your computer or mobile device’s hard drive while you are viewing the web site.  We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our web site.  This type of information is collected to make our Service more useful to you and to tailor your experience with us to meet your special interests and needs.  We use and store this information to provide you with more personalized and customized online services and to make our site more convenient, useful, valuable and appealing to you.

We use two broad categories of cookies: (1) first party cookies, served directly by us to your computer or mobile device, which we use to recognize your computer or mobile device when it revisits our web site; and (2) third party cookies, which are served by service providers on our web site, and can be used by such service providers to recognize your computer or mobile device when it visits other web sites.


Cookies We Use

The Service may use the following types of cookies for the purposes set out below:






Essential Cookies

These cookies are essential to provide you with services available through our web site and to enable you to use some of its features.  Without these cookies, our Services that you have asked for cannot be provided, and we only use these cookies to provide you with our Services.

Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow our web site to remember choices you make when you use our Service, such as remembering your language preferences, remembering your login details and remembering the changes you make on other parts of our web site, which you can customize.  The purpose of these cookies is to provide you with a more personal experience and to avoid you having to re-enter your preferences every time you visit our Service.

Analytics and Performance Cookies

These cookies are used to collect information about traffic to our web site and how users use our Service.  The information gathered does not identify any individual visitor. The information is aggregated and anonymous.  The information gathered may include the number of visitors to our Service, the web sites that referred them to our web site, the pages they visited on our web site, what time of day they visited our web site, whether they have visited our web site before, and other similar information.

We use Google Analytics for this purpose.  Google Analytics uses its own cookies.  You can find out more information about Google Analytics cookies here and about how Google protects your data here.  You can prevent the use of Google Analytics relating to your use of our Site by downloading and installing the browser plugin available here.

Targeted and Advertising Cookies

These cookies track your browsing habits to enable us to show advertising that is more likely to be of interest to you.  These cookies use information about your browsing history to group you with other users who have similar interests. Based on that information, third party advertisers can place cookies to enable them to show advertisements that we think will be relevant to your interests while you are on third party web sites.

Social Media Cookies

These cookies are used when you visit any public IHA web page. A social networking web site such as Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn can record that you have visited this page and could use this information to serve you relevant ads that are in compliance with platform advertising policies.


Disabling Cookies 

If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to accept cookies from our Services for any of the purposes described above, then you can typically instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to remove or stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the web sites you visit.  In order to do this, consult your browser’s technical information (instructions are usually located within the “settings,” “help” “tools” or “edit” facility).  Many browsers are set to accept cookies until you change your settings.

Further information about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your computer or mobile device and how to manage and delete them, visit

If you do not accept our cookies, you may experience some inconvenience or not be able to use all portions of our Services or all functionality of our Services.


Pixel Tags

In addition, we may use pixel tags (also referred to as clear GIFs, web beacons, or web bugs) on our Service to track the actions of users on web site.  Pixel tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, which are used to track online movements of web users.  In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, pixel tags are embedded invisibly in web pages.  Pixel tags also allow us to send email messages in a format users can read, and they tell us whether emails have been opened, for example, to ensure that we are sending messages that are of interest to our users.  We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a user.


Do Not Track Signals

Some internet browsers may be configured to send “Do Not Track” signals to the online services that you visit.  We currently do not respond to do not track signals.  To find out more about “Do Not Track,” please visit


Sites We Link To

If you choose to use any of the links we provide to sponsors and other third party resources, you will be leaving our Service and going to a new web site.  Protection of your privacy at those other sites will be governed by the privacy policy at that site.  We have taken special care selecting the companies that are accessible through our Service to try to ensure that they respect your privacy as we do, but please take the time to read the privacy policies at their sites.


What Should Parents Know About Children?

We understand the importance of protecting children’s privacy in the interactive world.  We do not use our Service to knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of thirteen (13) without parental consent.  If you are a child under 13 years of age, you are not permitted to use our Service and should not send any information about yourself to us through our Service.

In the event that we become aware that we have collected Personal Information from any child, we will dispose of that information in accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and other applicable laws and regulations.  If you are a parent or guardian and you believe that your child under the age of 13 has provided us with information without your consent, please contact us at, and we will take reasonable steps to ensure that such information is deleted from our files.

If we make any changes to this Privacy Policy, we will let you know the effective date of the changes and you can contact our Webmaster if you would like to know more about what is new. If you have any questions or comments or receive any unwanted e-mail from our Service, please contact our Webmaster via e-mail at
