Privacy Policy

This privacy policy discloses the privacy practices for www.cipe.org and related domains (including cctrends.cipe.org and www.cipe.org/blog/). This privacy policy applies solely to information collected by these web sites. It will notify you of the following:

  1. What personally identifiable information is collected from you through the web site, how it is used and with whom it may be shared.
  2. What choices are available to you regarding the use of your data.
  3. The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to register you for an event.

Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about events, news, or changes to this privacy policy. If you sign up to one of our mailing lists, we will only contact you with the information promised, and you may unsubscribe at any time.

Your Access to and Control Over Information

You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website:

  • See what data we have about you, if any.
  • Change/correct any data we have about you.
  • Have us delete any data we have about you.
  • Express any concern you have about our use of your data.

Emails sent to our mailing list(s) will also contain an unsubscribe option, which you can use to permanent remove yourself from those lists.

Security

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

We also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, responding to a proposal to or organizing an event) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Registration

In order to use some features on some CIPE websites, a user may need to first complete the registration form. During registration a user is required to give certain information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact you about the information or services on our site in which you have expressed interest. At your option, you may also provide demographic information (such as gender or age) about yourself, but it is not required.

Cookies

We use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.

Some of our partners may use cookies on our site to enhance functionality (for example, the social media sharing tools). However, we have no access to or control over these cookies.

Links

This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.

Surveys & Competitions

From time-to-time our site requests information via surveys or competitions. Participation in these surveys or competitions is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level).

Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes, and other information provided (such as name, country of residence, and biographical information) will be used to promote the competition and showcase the winning entries. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
