He or she can elect to unsubscribe at any time, and his or her email will not be shared with any outside parties or used for any additional purposes without his or her consent.
We might use web beacons or related technologies for the purpose of gaining information on how you access and navigate this website (“session information”). This session information may be used to improve the performance of this website, and/or your user experience, and/or to enhance recruitment.
In order to expand participation in iConquerMS™, we do sponsor online recruitment advertisements for iConquerMS™ on third party websites. If you accessed www.iConquerMS.org through such a third party site (i.e., Facebook), you may have been presented with the recruitment advertisement because of certain words or phrases you have used or activities you have undertaken through that site that indicate your interest in MS. Note that iConquerMS™ will not use such information for commercial marketing or solicitation, but the third party sites may do so. However, even clicking on our recruitment advertisements may provide additional information that these sites may use to direct marketing content to you. Please see the Privacy Policies of such websites. To measure the effectiveness of particular recruitment advertisements, we may share with third party sites the fact that you have visited www.iConquerMS.org and that you have completed registration, but not any information you provided during the registration process.
We may disclose session information to our authorized parties -- partners, employees, consultants, and agents -- who have a legitimate need to know the information for the purpose of fixing or improving this website and monitoring and improving the security of our network. We also reserve the right to disclose this information when special circumstances call for it, such as when disclosure is required by law or court order or when disclosure is, in our sole discretion, necessary to protect our legal rights, including intellectual property rights.
Information collected about your site visit may include your IP address, browser (including version), the URL visited, and the date and time of access. This data does not contain any information that directly identifies you and we will never use this data to learn your identity.
We have in place physical and electronic security procedures to protect the information we collect online. However, we cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
