We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site.
This site contains links to other sites. International Fitness Association is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites.
Our site uses an order form for customers to request information, products, and services. We collect visitor's contact information (like their email address), unique identifiers (like their membership ID), financial information (like their account or credit card numbers), and demographic information (like their address). Contact information from the order form is used to send membership materials to our customers. Certified members may receive information about their membership only. Financial information that is collected is used to check the users' qualifications. Unique identifiers (such as social security numbers, credit card numbers) may be collected from Web site visitors to verify the user's identity for membership purchase use and are not stored as account numbers in our record system.
Medical information that is collected by this site is used to determine fitness level and is not saved nor is distributed to any government, corporate or individual entity before destruction. Fitness level information is not saved or disseminated.
- This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control.
- This site uses secure encryption technology for all transaction processing.
- Here are some common concerns about providing credit card information over the Internet.
Is it safe to give out your credit card number over the Internet? Thanks to IFA's secure server, the answer is "yes." Our secure server software encrypts your credit card and other personal information, ensuring that Internet transactions stay private and protected.
In fact, ordering products via the Internet can be safer than by fax. When you order with a secure server, only authorized recipients possessing the proper electronic key can open and decode your transmission. On the other hand, anyone can read a fax.
How do you know if a website is secure? Unless you have changed your web browser configuration, you will get a message telling you that you are about to enter a secure environment. If you use Netscape, you will see an icon at the lower left hand corner of your screen; when you are on a secure page, you will see that the key is in one piece. (Otherwise, it is broken in the middle.) If you use Internet Explorer, you will see a closed lock in the lower right hand corner of your screen on older browsers and next to the URL window on newer browsers.
If you look on the bottom of this screen, you will see that this page of information is not secure. That's because nothing confidential is contained within it. However, on the page where you are asked to provide a credit card number, you will see the security icon is in place.
Some older browsers do not support secure transactions. If your browser does not support secure transactions, do not use this service. Instead, call our toll-free number, 800-227-1976 and pay for your certification by phone or use the Mail-in Order Form and mail in your credit information or personal check.
