YOUR CONSENT; OPTING OUT
INFORMATION WE COLLECT & HOW WE COLLECT IT
For the purposes of operating, improving, and monitoring the user experience on our Services and our operations generally, we collect various information from those using the Services. This information is broadly of two types: (1) Personal Information (meaning information which is personal to you and can be used to identify you, such as your name, email address, home address, phone number, citizenship, birth date, place of birth, optional demographic data you choose to submit) and (2) Website User Information (such as the number of users—but not their names—who have viewed an article; in some jurisdictions, some of this Website User Information, such as IP address, may be deemed to be personally identifiable information).
You may also provide us with payment and transaction information such as credit card information and gift/donation information. Note that we use third party payment processors to facilitate your payments and do not store your payment information.
Website User Information & Cookies/Web Beacons/Tracking
When you access our Services, we may collect Website User Information including, but not limited to, pages visited, hyperlinks used, type of device used, date, and time spent on our Services.
Collecting such Website User Information may involve logging the IP address, operating system and browser software used by individual site visitors. From such information a user’s Internet Service Provider and other data could be inferred, but cannot be used to personally identify you. We use this information to understand how to service users of our Services and improve our Services and programs by using Google Analytics or other website analysis tools.
We do not track visitors across third party websites to provide targeted advertising, and therefore do not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.
You can access content on our Services and use most features of our Services without revealing any Personal Information. We only collect Personal Information when you provide it to us directly (or as noted in the Website User Information), for example:
When you submit a grant application or otherwise through the Services;
If you register with us to receive email newsletters or other communications from us;
If you contact us through the Services;
When you participate in surveys;
When you participate with social media accounts operated by Wenner-Gren;
If you register for and participate in our programs, activities, initiatives, and events;
When you provide Author Content (as defined in the Terms and Conditions of Use) such as comments or written submissions to SAPIENS on any part of the Services that permit it; and
When we need to verify your information.
