Anonymous browsing

Users can browse the ICMC website without revealing any personal information.

Monitoring website traffic

ICMC monitors general trends in the use of its website.

ICMC uses the information to generate statistics and measure the website' activity in order to improve its effectiveness. This information is never connected with any personal information users supply to ICMC, for example when registering for the ICMC Newsletter or when making an online donation using a credit card.


Monitoring website traffic includes the use of cookies. Cookies are small data files made up of letters and numbers placed on computers or other mobile devices which allow a better understanding of website performance and improvements of user experience. When users visit the ICMC website, some information is collected, such as the site that referred them to ICMC, their IP address, the browser and the type of machine they are using, as well as the files they download, the pages they visit, and the dates/times of those visits.

However, this information is anonymous and based on behavior rather than on personally distinguishable features.

Users are free to decline cookies if their browser permits, although in that case they may not be able to use certain features on the website and may be required to re-enter information more frequently.

Personal information

ICMC does not collect personal information, such as the name, mailing address, email address, and other information of individual users, unless such information is voluntarily disclosed, for example by subscribing to the ICMC Newsletter or by making an online donation. In such event, ICMC will only use the personal information for the purpose for which it was disclosed.

ICMC does not sell, distribute or rent personal information collected on its website.

ICMC relies on online service providers for the provision of services, such as hosting services, website traffic analysis, electronic newsletters, online surveys, and electronic payments. When users make online donations, they are asked to provide credit card details. These details are transferred to a secure online payment service provider, hosted outside of ICMC. ICMC does not retain credit card information.
