Our Commitment To Privacy
 Your privacy is important. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining Institute of Arteriology (IOA) online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.

The Information We Collect:

This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on this IOA website. On some pages, you can register to receive materials. IOA may collect personally identifiable information, such as your name. If you donate online to IOA we collect credit card information. This information is used to complete the transaction. We may gather additional personal or non-personal information in the future.

Information about your computer hardware and software may be automatically collected by IOA. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the IOA website.

IOA encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from IOA so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. IOA is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the IOA website.


The Way We Use Information:

You are able to register with our website if you would like to receive our newsletters as well as announcements and updates. Information you submit on our website will not be used for this purpose unless you register. We use non-identifying and aggregate information, stored in cookies, to better design our website and to share information with you.

Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above.

IOA may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

IOA does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties.

IOA may share data with trusted partners to help perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to IOA, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

IOA will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on IOA or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of IOA; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of IOA, or the public.


Opting Out and Unsubscribe

You may be a subscriber to our newsletters. Also, we may occasionally send you information regarding special events and updates. If you ever decide you no longer wish to receive these communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each newsletter or communication, or by calling customer service at (323) 642-6861 or emailing


Our Commitment To Data Security

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.


When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) on our donation forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our site, please contact us as indicated below.


Our Commitment To Children’s Privacy:

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.

How You Can Correct Your Information

You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that credibly shows error. To protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
