What Information do We Collect?
Icahn may collect both personally identifiable information about you and non-personal information about your visit when you access our website. The personally identifiable information we collect is limited to information you submit to us. For example, we collect your e-mail address when you choose to subscribe to the Icahn Report or choose to join one of our initiatives such as the United Shareholders of America Campaign.
The non-personal information we may collect includes the domain name of the site providing you with Internet access, the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet, your browser type and version, the operating system your computer is running and other site visit data such as the pages you view, information you search for and the average time spent on our website. Much of this information is tracked through log files, which are stored on Icahn’s servers. It is possible this information could be matched with your name or other personally identifiable information.
How is Your Information Used?
Icahn considers the personally identifiable information contained in our business records to be confidential. We will not sell, rent, or share your personally identifiable information without your consent except in accordance with this policy. If you submit your e-mail address or other personally identifiable information or communications to us via our website while requesting information or contacting someone at Icahn or communicating with us or submitting communications (for example an email message or blog submission), we will use this information only to the extent necessary to respond to your request(s) or submissions or to otherwise communicate with you. This includes providing you with updates or other communications to further any campaigns we have initiated and that you have joined. To do this, we may need to share your information with our affiliates, business partners or others who work for us such as service providers, vendors, contractors and agents. To the extent you submit personally identifiable information related to a specific initiative or campaign, we may share the information with any subsequently formed affiliate dedicated to such initiative or campaign.
We use the non-personal information collected about site visits in the aggregate to better understand the entire audience that is requesting or submitting information. Aggregate information is anonymous. This information enables us to increase the functionality and user-friendliness of our site and better tailor the site to our visitors’ needs.
To the extent permitted by law, any information collected over our website or concerning its use, including the content of any communication you submit or post to the Site’s Blog (personal and non-personal), may be disclosed to government authorities or third parties pursuant to a legal request, subpoena or other legal process. We may also use or disclose your information as permitted by law to collect debts, fight fraud or protect the rights or property of Icahn, our customers, our website, its users or third parties, or when we otherwise believe in good faith that the law requires it.
Furthermore, any communication you submit or post to the Site’s Blog is a public communication and may be viewed by the general public. Therefore, you acknowledge and understand that you have no expectation of privacy or confidentiality in the content you submit to the Site’s Blog, whether or not it includes personally identifiable information about you. If you display your personal information in any communication submitted to the Site’s Blog, other individuals may collect and use your personal information. We are not responsible for, nor can we guarantee the protection of, any personal information you disclose in a communication submitted to the Site’s Blog for posting or contained in email submitted to us, and thus, you acknowledge that if you disclose personal information in any such material, you do so at your own risk.
What About Cookies and Web Beacons?
Icahn may use technologies such as cookies and web beacons to enhance the information we have about your preferences and to learn about your visit. A cookie is a piece of information that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. A cookie allows Icahn to determine that a visit has occurred within our site, as well as which pages were viewed. Cookies are not used to identify you and will not collect personal information. You can decide if and how your computer will accept cookies by configuring your preferences option within your web browser. If you choose to decline cookies, however, some of the functionality of this website may be impaired. Web beacons, also known as clear gifs and web bugs, allow us to recognize a cookie on your computer when you view a web page or e-mail. These electronic images help us measure the effectiveness of our online advertising and/or e-mail campaigns by, for example, counting the number of individuals who visit our website or the number of individuals who open or act upon an e-mail message.
How Do We Protect Personally Identifiable Information Collected on this Site?
We take reasonable precautions to protect your personal information in our possession from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. However, Icahn does not warrant or represent that its level of security meets or exceeds any particular standard. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. What Websites Does This Policy Cover?
What Happens to Your Information if There is a Corporate Change of Control or Sale of Assets?
In the event of a corporate change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets, Icahn reserves the right to transfer your personal information to the new party in control or the party acquiring assets.
