Privacy Policy

The Immunoglobulin Nursing Society (“IgNS,” “we,” “us”), as a leading professional organization dedicated to nursing professionals in education, management, practice and research in the field of immunoglobulin (Ig) therapy, shares your concerns about the protection of personal information relating to you.

IgNS takes the security of your information seriously and wants you to be familiar with how we collect, use and disclose information about you. This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) describes our privacy practices regarding the collection, use and transfer of personal information collected by IgNS in connection with our services, both offline and through our web site – http://www.ig-ns.org/ (the “Site”).

By using the Site, you signify your agreement with this Policy. If you do not agree to this Policy, please do not use the Site.

PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT

IgNS collects personal information (such as name, e-mail address and physical address) and other information that those using our services provide to us, including, for example, when registering for membership with IgNS, participating in conferences or symposia we organize, or when contacting us by e- mail or postal mail.

HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We use the information we collect in support of our services only, and never sell, share, or disclose your information to unaffiliated third parties without your consent. The following paragraphs describe some of the ways in which we may use personal and other information:

Fulfilling your requests. We may use personal information to respond to your inquiries and fulfill your requests. If you contact us, we may keep a record of your contact information and correspondence, and we may use any information you provide in your message to respond to your inquiry.

Business purposes. We may use personal information for our business purposes, such as data analysis, audits, developing new products, enhancing our website, improving our services, identifying usage trends, internal communications, determining the effectiveness of our promotional activities, administering our products and services, and for procurement and financial transactions.

Informational communications. IgNS may from time to time send informational e-mails, articles, white papers, notifications, and other information regarding our services. Occasionally, and with your
consent, we may use your personal information in press releases and other publically available promotional materials. We also may use personal information such as e-mail or postal addresses to conduct surveys.

Administrative information. We may from time to time use personal information to send you important information regarding our Site, changes to our terms, conditions, and policies and/or other administrative information. We may also contact you from time to time to verify that the personal information we have collected about you is accurate and current.

De-identified data. Additionally, we may aggregate or de-identify personal information in a manner such that the end-product does not personally identify you or any other individual, including, for example, to generate norms, enable us to conduct ongoing validation studies, publish journal articles to further the knowledge base of organizational science, and to compile reports. Such aggregate or de-identified information is not considered personal information for purposes of this Policy and we may use it for any purpose.

DISCLOSURE TO AFFILIATES, SERVICE PROVIDERS AND OTHERS

Disclosure to affiliates and strategic alliance partners. We may jointly use personal information with our affiliates and IgNS will remain responsible for managing such jointly-used personal information. From time to time we also may disclose personal information to our strategic alliance partners and to our network of independent consultants who provide services on behalf of IgNS for the purposes stated above.

Disclosure to service providers. IgNS works with third parties who provide services that may include, but are not necessarily limited to, website hosting and IT consulting services; data analysis; public relations services; attorneys, accountants, and other administrative and back-up and security services. As part of providing those services, such third parties may be provided with access to personal information. In addition, our software development partners may use personal information for purposes of modifying, improving, refining and validating their technology and research and development.

Business transfers. IgNS reserves the right to disclose or transfer any and all personal information that we collect from visitors, or that we otherwise collect in connection with our services, to a third party in connection with a strategic alliance with such third party, or in the event of a sale of our company or one of our affiliates, or a merger or consolidation involving our company or one of our affiliates, or a sale or transfer of assets or of any portion of our business or the business of one or more of our affiliates.

Other disclosures. IgNS may also use or disclose personal information in order to: (i) comply with applicable laws; (ii) respond to inquiries or requests from public or government authorities, including those outside of your country of residence; (iii) comply with valid legal process; (iv) protect the rights, privacy, safety or property of IgNS, Site visitors or the public; (v) permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain; (vi) enforce our Terms of Use; or (vii) respond to an emergency. We cannot and do not assume any responsibility for the actions or omissions of third parties, such as clients, including the manner in which they use personal information received either from IgNS or from other independent sources.

OTHER INFORMATION WE COLLECT

IgNS collects other information that does not reveal your specific identity (“Other Information”), such as:

• Information collected through cookies, pixel tags and other technologies;
• Demographic information and other information provided by you; and
• Aggregated information.

Since Other Information does not reveal your specific identity, we may use it for any purpose.

We and our third-party service providers may collect Other Information in a variety of ways, including:

Using cookies. We use “cookies” — that is, small text files placed on a visitor’s computer hard drive — and other technologies to help us determine information such as the type of content to which a visitor to the Site links, and the length of time each visitor spends at any particular area of the Site. IgNS cookies are only read by IgNS servers and are unable to execute any code or virus. We use cookies to track the following items: (i) a unique machine ID to help us identify the user so that we can retrieve their username and password (only if they checked “remember by username and password”); (ii) a session ID to help us identify the user between web calls; and (iii) a flag to record whether a user’s machine supports cookies.

You can configure your browser settings to accept all cookies, reject all cookies or notify you when a cookie is set. (Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.) If you reject all cookies, you will not be able to use those services that assist you as you sign in.

Using pixel tags, web beacons, clear GIFs or other similar technologies. These may be used in connection with some Site pages and HTML-formatted email messages to, among other things, track
the actions of Site users and email recipients, measure the success of our communications and compile statistics about Site usage and response rates.

Tracking data. IgNS monitors visitor traffic patterns throughout the Site by logging “Tracking Data,” which is collected automatically from each Site visitor. Tracking Data may include your “IP Address” which is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), as well as your browser type and operating system, the referring site, which pages of the Site were visited, the order in which they were visited and which hyperlinks were “clicked.”

IgNS uses Tracking Data in aggregate form to perform statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of our visitors, and by measuring demographics and interests regarding specific areas of the Site.

From you. Information such as your location and preferred means of communication is collected when you voluntarily provide this information. Unless combined with personal information, this information does not personally identify you or any other user of the Site.

By aggregating information. Aggregated personal information does not personally identify you or any other user of the Site. For example, we may aggregate information to calculate the geographic distribution of participants in our services.

ADDITIONAL GUIDELINES

IgNS may from time to time sponsor special features or promotions on the Site and additional privacy information may be posted. That privacy information, to the extent it conflicts with this Policy, will govern that particular feature or promotion.

CHOICE AND ACCESS

Your provision of personal information to us is voluntary.

You may contact us at info@ig-ns.org if you wish to receive certain information as to whether or not personal information relating to you is held by us and to obtain a copy of such information.

If you would like to: (i) ask questions about how we handle personal information; (ii) review, correct or update your personal information; or (iii) request that your personal information be removed from IgNS’ database, please contact us at info@ig-ns.org. You may request to be removed from IgNS’ database by putting “Remove User” in the subject line of the e-mail, and including your full name, User ID and telephone number in the body of the e-mail message.

We will aim to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practical, and may need to contact you in order to be sure that we are deleting the appropriate information.

We also may need to retain certain information about you, such as your e-mail address, in order to honor opt-out or similar requests. Please keep in mind that this residual information will remain within IgNS databases, access logs and other records, which may or may not contain personal information about you. The residual information will not be used for commercial purposes. However, IgNS reserves the right, from time to time, to recontact former users of its services.

LOCATION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED AND MAINTAINED

Your personal information may be collected, used, processed, disclosed and transferred to and within the United States and other countries where we have facilities or in which we engage service providers. By using our Site or services, you consent to the transfer of information to countries outside of your country of residence, which may have different data protection rules than in your country.

SECURITY

IgNS has reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of personal information about Site visitors which is under our control. Unfortunately, however, no security system, or system of transmitting personal information over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), please immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us in accordance with the “Questions” section below.

RETENTION PERIOD

We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Policy unless a longer retention period is required or allowed by law.
