Privacy Policy

IFMA respects the privacy of visitors to its website and has developed the following privacy policy to inform visitors about how information is handled once it has been submitted online.

Personal, identifying information is not collected from visitors to our site unless this information has been voluntarily provided. All sensitive information sent to IFMA is kept confidential. However, please be advised that the IFMA website will query visitors browsers for certain information, such as

  • the domain you are accessing our site from
  • the type of PC operating system you use
  • the type of browser you use.


This information is used solely to measure and improve our website and services and to better serve our members and customers. No individual session data is saved; IFMA only uses aggregate statistical data to compile reports.

IFMA may place Internet cookies on visitors' hard drives. Internet cookies save data about individual visitors, such as the visitor's name, password, user-name, screen preferences, the pages of a site viewed by the visitor, and the advertisements viewed or clicked by the visitor. When the visitor revisits the site, IFMA may recognize the visitor by the Internet cookie and customize the visitor's experience accordingly. Visitors may decline Internet cookies, if any, by using the appropriate feature of their Web client software, if available; however, this may impair certain features of the site.

IFMA headquarters never rents or sells e-mail addresses to outside parties. Occasionally, you may wish to receive information or communication from an IFMA client. In that instance, you will be asked for permission to share your e-mail address.

After you create an online account with IFMA, you will occasionally receive information about IFMA products, services, and educational offerings that relate to your areas of interest unless you choose to opt-out. If you have questions or concerns about IFMA’ online policy or wish to be removed from any IFMA list, please contact IFMA at or by telephone at +1-713-623-4362.
