This identifier will not be disseminated to a third party unless the application so states and provision is made for you to opt-out and/or, in return for specific consideration, you agree and give express permission to do so.We, along with the outside companies with which we work, if applicable, may keep the information you provide to us, along with information we collect from outside sources, so that we can offer services related to your needs.

If you send us an e-mail containing comments, concerns or suggestions, we will use your e-mail address only to send you a response. Your e-mail address will not be forwarded to any third parties without your permission.
Personal information is stored only temporarily to complete the calculations required by the user. None of the calculated results or information is retained by ISAC. The only information that is retained is that someone anonymously used one or our tools.
