This Policy applies only to information collected at this Website. It does not apply to information collected by us, or on our behalf, in person, through the mails, by telephone or any other means. This policy is effective as of December 1, 2008.
Introduction & Personal Information
We at the Central Pennsylvania Institute of Science and Technology (CPI) and our affiliated organizations (“we, us”) respect your online privacy and recognize your need for appropriate protection and management of your personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) that we acquire in your use of our Website. We may collect Personal Information from you; if we do, you will be expressly asked for it so that you know what information you are providing. If you register for a conference on our Website, we collect your name, title, company, address, phone and fax numbers, e-mail address, and company description and URL. We also collect non-Personal Information, described below.
We use reporting technologies on our Website to record non-personal information such as Internet domain and host names; Internet protocol (IP) addresses; the page you request, your browser software and operating system types; clickstream patterns; and dates and times that our Website is accessed. We analyze this information for trends and statistics. Our use of tracking technologies allows us to improve our Website and your experience, helps us understand the demographics of our user base, and suggests the sorts of announcements you are likely to have an interest in.
Protection of Personal Information
We restrict access to the Personal Information we have collected from or about you, as described above, to those employees who need to know the information to provide products and services to you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to guard your Personal Information.
Despite our use of commercially reasonable efforts to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access or disclosure, the internet is not an inherently secure environment and so we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information. We assume no liability for any disclosure of data due to errors in transmission, unauthorized third party access or other acts of third parties, or acts or omissions beyond our reasonable control.
Use of Personal Information
We collect Personal Information when you sign up to receive newsletters that we publish, request information regarding an event we sponsor, and otherwise as needed to fulfill your requests for information, products, and services, and to contact you. When we collect this information, you will know it because you will need to submit this information to us in order to receive the information, product, or service you requested. We use Personal Information primarily for our own internal purposes, such as evaluating what aspects of the Website need improvement, fulfilling your requests for information, products, or services, and communicating with you.
