Information We Collect & How We Use It
TIP collects information from our users when they create an account for this Site, request copies of publications, seek additional information regarding our services or employment opportunities, or register for conferences and other TIP-sponsored events. Registration, enrollment, account setup and other forms on the Site may ask users to give us contact information, unique personal identifiers, financial information, subject areas of interest and/or demographic information. We may aggregate demographic information, and the types of systems and browsers of users for internal purposes, so that we may better understand the user population of our Site, identify subject areas of interest, and determine whether the Site is designed to work with the computer settings of our visitors. TIP may conduct user surveys on the Web, which may be intended to provide TIP with information such as user identity, user viewing habits, relevant to user needs, etc. TIP uses the information gathered from such surveys to improve our web content, navigation, and overall visitor experience.
Any personal information that you provide, such as your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, subject areas of interest, etc., allows TIP to inform you about updates to the service and to notify you about other products and services offered by TIP that may be of interest to you. We will not sell, share, or rent or otherwise make available any of that information to other parties, except that we may disclose the information to third parties who perform services on our behalf and have a need to access the information in connection with those services.
We may collect the email addresses at the point of subscription, of users who wish to receive email notification of publications and press releases in identified subject areas of interest, and of those who send us e-mail messages or express interest regarding our services or employment opportunities, or register for conferences and other TIP-sponsored events. We will not share any email addresses with any third party or send unsolicited e-mail to any of the addresses we collect, except in very limited circumstances as set forth in this policy.
International Transfer of Information
Because TIP is a global organization, information collected on this Site or through other means may be transferred from time to time among the TIP offices or personnel, or to third parties located throughout the world, including countries that may not have laws regulating the use and transfer of personally-identifiable data. By using the Site, submitting information through the Site, or submitting information to TIP through other means, you voluntarily consent to international transfer and hosting of such information.
Compliance with the Law
TIP complies with all applicable privacy laws and regulations. TIP may be compelled to surrender personal user or customer information to legal authorities without express user consent if presented with a court subpoena or similar legal or administrative order, or as required or permitted by the laws, rules and regulations of any nation, state or applicable jurisdiction.
