Scope of Policy
Information Collection, Usage, and Disclosure
We may request and store the following types of specific information: your name, company name, street address, city, county, state, country, province, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses, mobile location information (if you have activated a mobile application with us and permitted your mobile device to transmit location data), and financial account information. Some of the information collected by IHCF may be personal information. IHCF mobile applications may also disclose certain permissions for certain device settings such as authentication, phonebook, contacts, microphone, camera, and other sensitive device data. The information we collect is used to improve the content and quality of the Service.
IHCF uses information that is collected for the following general purposes:
to process your grant and/or scholarship applications and related documents and to make a decision regarding the acceptance or rejection of your applications;
to verify the information that you provide to IHCF;
to contact you in response to any transactions, requests, complaints or comments you may have;
to contact you to provide you with information regarding IHCF's business;
to provide advertisements to you through our website, email messages, mobile applications or other methods of communication;
to administer surveys, contests or other promotional activities or events sponsored by us, our vendors or other third party service providers;
to help us to develop, evaluate and improve our sales and marketing strategies and techniques;
to operate and improve our website;
to provide third parties with information necessary to permit that third party to conduct business with IHCF and/or effectively provide you with services; and
to respond to legal process and reasonable inquiries from regulatory and/or investigative authorities.
Information is not shared with or sold to others for commercial purposes, except to provide the products or services you've requested, when we have your permission, or in the event that it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of terms of service, or as otherwise required by law, regulation or governmental request.
Aggregate Data and Tracking
From time to time, we may analyze browsing information and aggregate data for quality assurance, contextual advertising, and other similar activities. We do not collect, and it is not our current policy to allow third parties to collect “targeted” cookies (persistent identifiers tracking users over time across different sites and services) for marketing purposes. In addition, we do not currently respond to “Do Not Track (DNT)” browser signals.
IHCF takes commercially reasonable technical, physical and administrative measures to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and security of your personally identifiable information. Of course, we cannot guarantee the security of your personally identifiable information on the Internet.
The Service and related content and materials are the property of IHCF or its licensors and are protected under applicable intellectual property and other laws, including under the appropriate jurisdictions' copyright and trademark laws, and international conventions. Except as explicitly provided by IHCF, you may not transmit, display, reproduce, distribute, modify, create derivative works from, or otherwise exploit the Service. Automated means, such as but not limited to scrapers or spiders, may not be used to collect and/or index any information contained on our site. You may not (a) reproduce, (b) store a significant portion, (c) distribute copies of, (d) frame content of, or (e) incorporate into another website, materials or intellectual property from our sites or services without the prior written consent of IHCF.
We reserve the right to use third-party agents and service providers, who are bound by strict confidentiality guidelines, to perform storage and processing functions. We will store your personal information for as long as there is a business need for it in accordance with legal and regulatory recordkeeping requirements.
