Collection of Personal Information
INSNA collects Personal Information from visitors to our web sites in the following ways:

  • INSNA Membership
  • Social Networks (journal) Subscriptions
  • Sunbelt Registration and Abstract Submission
  • I-Connection and Related Member Services
The use of any of these services is entirely optional and voluntary; however, if you do not provide the Personal Information requested, we may elect to not make the related services available for your use. If you send us an e-mail in which you disclose Personal Information, we will use it to discuss the subject of your correspondence and, if appropriate, share it with other interested parties (such as manufacturers of merchandise you have purchased from a web site).

If you send us an e-mail, you should know that e-mail is not necessarily secure against interception. So, if your communication needs to include sensitive information like your bank account, credit card, or social security number, please contact us by postal mail or telephone (see contact us) rather than e-mail.

In order to track your use of the site, "cookies" may be employed. Cookies are pieces of information that are sent by web sites and stored in your computer's hard drive, which provide you a service by allowing us to recognize your computer to save you from having to re-enter the same data every time you visit our web sites. They also allow us to learn how visitors use our web sites. This user data is utilized for tracking purposes through page tallying and social network analysis methods.

In the course of serving advertisements to the site, our third-party advertisers may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser.

If you do not want to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject them. However, if you turn cookies off, you will not have access to some INSNA features and services.

If you order a product or service from us, or use our interactive services, INSNA may share Personal Information with service providers, suppliers and other third parties (for example, sweepstakes sponsors or delivery services) that assist us in operating the web sites or providing the products or services. When we share your Personal Information with third parties, they may use your Personal Information to send you information on their additional products or services, but INSNA does not allow them to sell or transfer your Personal Information to others. We do not otherwise sell or provide your Personal Information to third parties.

Finally, please note that we will release your Personal Information if required to do so by law, or by search warrant, subpoena or court order.
