Our Privacy Commitment
This Privacy Statement confirms that our website is designed to ensure that our information disclosure practices are responsible and appropriate. To protect your privacy, we have voluntarily undertaken this privacy initiative to meet established online information collection and use practices.
What information does this Privacy Statement cover?
What types of personally identifiable information do we collect about our guests?
We don’t require personal information to access our website. However, if you prefer not to disclose personal information, you will not be able to enjoy certain features of our website. Personal information is information that identifies you and may be used to contact you. To offer our guests certain features on our website, we collect several types of personal information.
We don’t knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. We take kids privacy seriously, and encourage parents to play an active role in their children’s online experience at all times.
Information You Provide to Us
All of the personal information we receive comes directly from our guests. We collect personal information from our guests to:
- Register to attend our events
- Register to apply for a scholarship or research grant
- Submit general inquiries or complaints to NIHP Typically, this information includes:
- Place of employment
- Email address
- Credit card information
- Telephone number
- Mailing address.
Additionally, we may also collect other types of non-personal information (known as demographic information) such as gender. This demographic information may be associated with your personal information.
Information Collected Through Technology
We collect information through technology to make our websites more interesting and useful to you. For example, when you come to one of our websites, we collect your IP address. An IP address is often associated with the portal through which you enter the Internet, like your ISP (Internet service provider), your company, or your university. Standing alone, your IP address is not personally identifiable. At times, we also use IP addresses to collect information regarding the frequency with which our guests visit various parts of our websites. We may combine this information with personally identifiable information.
How is your personally identifiable information used and shared?
We don’t share, sell, or rent your personal information to third parties without your consent. We don’t require personal information to access our website. However, if you prefer not to disclose personal information, you will not be able to enjoy certain features of our website.
Whatever the purpose may be, we will only collect information to the extent reasonably necessary to fulfill your requests and our legitimate business objectives.
NIHP Tools and Updates
Information collected from those who voluntarily submit it to us is used to provide services like updates on special events, call for papers, and email announcements of interest to our users.
We occasionally use other companies, agents or contractors to perform services necessary to our operations. For example, we have partnered with other companies to personalize our web pages, process credit card transactions, and analyze customers’ interaction with our website. We also provide postal addresses to the Israel Post Office for delivery purposes. In the course of providing such services, these companies may have contact with your personally identifying information. These entities have agreed to securely store and maintain the personal information received from us.
For practical reasons, we treat personal information submitted to us in a business capacity different from information we receive in a non-business capacity. Personal information submitted to us in a business capacity (e.g. resumes, event sponsorship, etc.) may be shared with third parties, depending on the nature of the inquiry.
