NYIG values the privacy and security of our Sites users. To that end, we take measures to protect your personal information and the security of our Sites. We do not generally ask for or collect personal information from our Sites visitors, however, in connection with your use of the Sites or particular features or components thereof, you may be required to provide, and we may collect, information that can identify you personally or that can be used with other sources of information to identify you (“Personal Information”). When Personal Information is required, we ask only for the personal information needed. For example, if you create an account or purchase products on the Sites, you will be asked to enter your name, e-mail address, phone number, credit card information and billing address. You may also provide Personal Information when you request customer service or other assistance, sign up to receive emails or other communications for us, or otherwise communicate with us via the Sites. The personal information you provide is used by our in-house staff to place and track orders and for other internal business purposes, but it is not made available to any third party except to our third party service providers who perform administrative or other services on our behalf or as may be required by law.
You should, and we provide you with the opportunity to, update your previously provided personal information, and you may delete such information.
When you use the Sites, NYIG may also collect certain information that does not identify you individually (“Anonymous Information”). For example, NYIG may collect information about your computer, mobile device, or other device that you use to access the Sites (which may include, for example, IP address, geolocation information, unique device identifiers, browser type, browser language, and other transactional information) and about your use of our website (which may include, for example, a reading history of the pages you view).
NYIG collects geolocation data for purposes of offering relevant content, in particular meeting information. Geolocation data consists of general location information based on latitude and longitude (if the user has enabled location services for an application on the user’s mobile device), or based on the IP address of the user’s computer or mobile device. By using any of the Sites, you consent to NYIG’s collection of this geolocation information.
Like many websites, NYIG may use “cookies,” which are files stored on your computer’s hard drive that help NYIG identify account holders and optimize their website experience, facilitate ordering through the online store, to track Sites usage, and to compile nonpersonal, aggregate data to improve content and efficiency of use for our website. This information will be used solely to improve our Sites and offerings and to better understand our Sites users. Most browsers accept cookies automatically but allow you to disable them. NYIG recommends that you leave cookies enabled so it can offer you a better website experience. NYIG will not drop cookies or other tracking devices that are persistent and/or cannot be erased on an end user’s hard drive.
We use the information we obtain from or about you to help us operate the Sites and personalize and improve your experience with the Sites and to make certain features, service, activities or functionalities available to you. For example, we may use information we collect (including Personal Information) to:
We may use and store information about you that we receive from other sources to enable us to update and correct the information contained in our database and to better customize your experience with the Sites.
When you request services or products, you may receive emails from us to process your requests or to contact you regarding such. When and if you opt-in (as provided on the Sites) to receive email updates or other notices from us, your address will be used for that purpose only, or to contact you regarding your participation in user surveys, to ask for feedback with respect to the Sites or existing or prospective services. If you wish to be removed from our email list, you can contact us directly through our email address at webmaster@NYIntergroup.org or reply to the most recent monthly email and request that your email address be removed.
We make commercially reasonable efforts to keep your Personal Information secure. We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your Personal Information when you make a contribution, place an order or enter, submit, or access your personal information. When you provide us payment information in order to process a contribution or make a purchase, this information is encrypted, using reasonable, industry-standard security measures, and is used (generally by our third party vendors) only to fulfill your request. After a transaction, your credit card information will not be stored on our servers.
No transmission of data over the internet is guaranteed to be completely secure, thus, it may be possible for third parties not under the control of NYIG to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully, including in the case of your contacting NYIG by email or a “contact us” or similar feature on the Sites. Accordingly, though NYIG takes commercially reasonable steps to protect the security and integrity of all Personal Information provided to the Sites, due to the nature of the internet, NYIG cannot guarantee that such information, during transmission through the internet or while stored on its system or otherwise in its care, will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others, such as hackers. By using the Sites, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks.
