Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting the International University of the Health Sciences (IUHS) website. Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we have developed this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used within our sites and services. Please read on for more details about our privacy policy.

Any information you voluntarily provide to us through the IUHS website such as email address, name, or phone number will never be sold or traded to other colleges, universities, nonprofit organizations, or businesses. IUHS might use this information to inform you of changes to that website or to provide you other news and information about that site that we believe would be of interest to you.  At your request, IUHS will remove any contact information you provided from its files.

INFORMATION GATHERED AUTOMATICALLY

Unless you take steps to browse the Internet anonymously, IUHS tracks web browsing patterns to inform understanding of how our sites are being used. Generic information is collected through the use of “cookies,” which are text files placed on your computer, to evaluate usage patterns so that we can improve both content and distribution. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however, doing so may prevent you from using the full functionality of all of our websites. The generic information we collect is based on IP address, which is the location of a computer or network, and is not linked to your specific email address in any of the reports or other material compiled by IUHS. IUHS will not associate your IP address and web usage data with any other information held by IUHS that can specifically identify you unless required to do so by law.

Some sections of the IUHS use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. Google Analytics uses cookies to help us analyze how users use our sites. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website includes your IP address. This information will be transmitted to and stored by Google on its servers. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to Internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

IUHS

IUHS does not sell, rent, give away, or loan any identifiable information regarding its members to any third party other than agents and contractors of IUHS.

Agents and contractors of IUHS who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this privacy policy by, for example, not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for IUHS.

IUHS may release personal information when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to (i.) comply with law, (ii.) enforce or apply the terms of any of our user agreements, or (iii.) protect the rights, property, or safety of IUHS, our users, or others.

PROTECTION OF INFORMATION

IUHS has put in place appropriate procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, and maintain data  of the information collected online.

IUHS uses industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) technology to guarantee the confidentiality of online transactions made on our site. SSL authentication and encryption of the information that you send to us over the Internet helps protect your online transaction information from third party interception.

IUHS strongly urges you to protect your own privacy. Do not share any account information or passwords used to access our site.

Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this privacy policy.

Unfortunately, despite all of our efforts, there is always a risk that third parties may unlawfully intercept transmissions. This reality is true of all Internet use. As a result, we cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit, and you transmit all information at your own risk.
