What Personally Identifiable Information does IconiciD.com collect?

Generally, IconiciD.com collects personally identifiable information in two ways. Some information is gathered when you register for a new account and is required so that you may have full access to the Site and the services. This includes your name, a self-selected password, your address, your phone number, your date of birth, your email address, and at least one emergency contact person. There are also optional fields, such as your vehicle, medical, and insurance information, that you may include if you wish but which are not required however, not providing the information may have an impact on an emergency responder being able to access your information (i.e. without vehicle information a responder cannot access your information through a license plate number). When you make a purchase from us to become a member of our service, we will also collect your credit card information to process the transaction and may ask you to send us additional information in order to complete your purchase. Where possible, we indicate which fields are required and which fields are optional. It's your decision whether you want to share personally identifiable information with us. We also collect personal information when you report a problem or issue with our services through the Site's feedback form or contact form. If you contact IconiciD.com in any form, we may keep a record of that correspondence.
