Privacy Notice

Applicability

This privacy notice applies only to the REN-ISAC (http://ren-isac.net) public website and explains our practices concerning the collection, use, and disclosure of visitor information. Visitor information collected by REN-ISAC will be used only as outlined in this privacy notice.

Other units at Indiana University may collect and use visitor information in different ways. Therefore, visitors to other university websites should review the privacy notices for the particular sites they visit. REN-ISAC is not responsible for the content of other websites or for the privacy practices of websites outside the scope of this notice.

Changes

Because Internet technologies continue to evolve rapidly, REN-ISAC may make appropriate changes to this notice in the future. Any such changes will be consistent with our commitment to respecting visitor privacy, and will be clearly posted in a revised privacy notice.

Collection and Use

Passive/Automatic Collection

When you view pages on our site, the web server automatically collects certain technical information from your computer and about your connection including:

  • your IP address
  • user-specific information on which pages are visited
  • aggregate information on pages visited
  • the referring website
  • the date and time of visit
  • the duration of visit
  • your browser type
  • your screen resolution

Continued use of our website indicates consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of this information as described in this notice.

This technical information is retained in detail for up to 366 days.

Active/Manual/Voluntary Collection

Other than automatically collected technical information about your visit (described above, or cookies, described below), we may ask you to provide information voluntarily, such as through forms or other manual input--in order to make products and services available to you, to maintain and manage our relationship with you, including providing associated services or to better understand and serve your needs. This information is generally retained as long as you continue to maintain a relationship with us. Providing this information is wholly voluntary. However, not providing the requested information (or subsequently asking that the data be removed) may affect our ability to deliver the products or service for which the information is needed. Providing the requested information indicates your consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of this information as described in this notice. Information we may actively collect includes, but may not be limited to:

  • name
  • email address
  • job title
  • name of institution
  • comments/feedback

Information Usage

  • used to improve the content of our site
  • used to connect members and visitors to the services they prefer

Information Sharing

We do not share any aggregate, non-personally identifiable information with other entities or organizations.

We do not share any personally identifiable information with other entities or organizations, except when legally required to do so, at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation, to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our website and applicable laws, or to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our website.

Except as described above, we will not share any information with any party for any reason.

Except as provided in the Disclosure of Information section below, we do not attempt to use the technical information discussed in this section to identify individual visitors.

Cookies

A cookie is a small data file that is written to your hard drive that contains information about your visit to a web page. If you prefer not to receive cookies, you may configure your browser not to accept them at all, or to notify and require approval before accepting new cookies. Some web pages/sites may not function properly if the cookies are turned off, or you may have to provide the same information each time you visit those pages.

Disclosure of Information

We may share some aggregate information with other appropriate university personnel and units to ensure the quality, functionality, and security of our website/application.

Any other disclosure—with appropriate external parties such as law enforcement agencies—will be done in accordance with all applicable laws and university policies in order to investigate and respond to suspected violations of law or university policy.

Security

Due to the rapidly evolving nature of information technologies, no transmission of data over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. While we are committed to protecting the privacy of our visitors, we cannot guarantee the security of any information that you transmit to REN-ISAC websites, and you do so at your own risk. However, once we receive your information, we will use reasonable safeguards consistent with prevailing industry standards and commensurate with the sensitivity of the data being stored to maintain the security of that information on our systems.

In addition, we will comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws regarding the privacy and security of visitor information.

Privacy Notice Changes

From time to time, we may use visitor information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice.
