We at the Irving Convention and Visitors Bureau highly respect the privacy and confidentiality of individuals who visit our website - www.irvingtexas.com (the "Website"). This Privacy Policy outlines the information which we will collect from you on the Website and how we will use that information.

Collection of Your Personal Information

In order to enhance our membership services, advertising services, improve our marketing and promotional efforts, analyze Website usage, improve the Website's content and layout, generate aggregate reports on trends, interest and behavior and enhance service offerings, we routinely collect, compile, and report statistics and information reflecting the use of the Website and information services.

When you visit our website, our Web server automatically recognizes only the visitor's domain name, but not the e-mail address (where possible). We collect the e-mail and/or postal mailing addresses of those who communicate with us via e-mail and have provided this information voluntarily. In addition, we collect information volunteered by the consumer, such as survey information, contest information and/or site registrations.

We also collect aggregate information on what pages visitors access, user-specific information on what pages visitors access, and information volunteered by the visitor, such as survey information, contest information and/or site registrations. Information about your computer, such as your IP address, the type of Internet browser you are using, and the type of computer operating system you are using may also be collected. This is to ensure that our Website presents the best Web experience for our visitors, and that the site is an effective information resource. We collect the information to improve the content of our Web page, customize the content and/or layout of our page for each individual consumer, notify consumers about updates to our Website, and to contact consumers for destination marketing purposes.

We may transfer personal information to a third party for processing or to provide services, including third parties for whom we act as a booking or reservation agent, but use contractual or other means to provide a comparable level of protection while the information is in the custody of that third party.

If you supply us with your postal address or email address on-line, you may receive periodic mailings from us with updated destination information. If you do not wish to receive such mailings, please let us know by sending an email to info@irvingtexas.com. You may also receive mailings from other reputable companies or third-party independent research firms collecting aggregate research data, and likewise, if you so choose not to receive these mailings, you can have your name put on our do-not-share list. When contacting us to place your name on our do-not-share list, please provide your exact name and address. We will be sure your name is removed.

If you are under 18, your parent's or guardian's permission is required before you send any information about yourself (your name, address, email address, etc.) to us or anyone else over the Internet.  We encourage parents to get involved with their children's online usage and to be aware of the activities in which they are participating.

Accuracy

The Irving Convention and Visitors Bureau aims to keep personal information as accurate, complete, and up-to-date as is necessary for the purposes for which it is to be used.  However, if an individual successfully demonstrates to us that personal information is inaccurate, incomplete, out of date, or irrelevant, we will revise the personal information.  If necessary, we will disclose the revised personal information to third parties which were provided with the wrong information to permit them to revise their records as well.

Cookies

Cookies are a technology that installs information on a Website visitor's computer to permit the Website to recognize future visits when using that computer.  The Irving Convention and Visitors Bureau reserves the right to collect aggregate information using cookies to better design the Website, to make sure our ads and dynamic content are served correctly, and to improve the performance of our site for our users, particularly the way search pages are delivered.

Furthermore, advertisements displayed on the Website may also contain cookies provided by third parties.  Please note that we do not have control over or any responsibility or liability for the use and disclosure of information collected through advertisement cookies. You may choose to decline cookies if your browser so permits, but doing so may affect your use of the Website.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

The Irving Convention and Visitors Bureau reserves the right to change this policy from time to time without notice to you, and all such changes will be binding on you and us at the time they are posted on the Website.  All changes to this policy will be promptly posted in this section of the Website and, therefore, you are encouraged to review this policy each time you visit the Website.

Surveys and Contests

Users participating in our surveys and contests may be required to submit varying degrees of personal information, such as contact information (name and shipping address) and demographic information (zip code, age level), depending upon the nature of the particular survey or contest. Participation in these is completely voluntary, and therefore the site visitor has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Contact information will be used to notify winners and award prizes. The names and photograph or likeness of contest winners may be reproduced on the Website or in other advertising materials or social media. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.

From time to time we may wish to use or disclose personal information for a purpose other than that for which it was initially collected.  We will ensure that personal information is not used or disclosed for the new purpose unless the consumer is informed of this new purpose and gives his or her consent.

We have taken appropriate security measures on our site's physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you through our Website.

Links to Other Websites

These privacy policies refer to areas and services offered by the Irving Convention and Visitors Bureau on the Website.  Since our Website contains links to other sites, which may be operated by other government agencies, non-profit organizations or private businesses, please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our site visitors to be aware when they leave our Website and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to the information collected by this Website.

All content, images, and designs are the exclusive property of Irving Convention and Visitors Bureau. Unauthorized use of any of these items without specific written permission is prohibited.
