This Website Privacy Statement explains how AIDSVu handles the information that you provide, or that is otherwise collected, on the website AIDSVu.org.
Unless otherwise specifically noted, this Website Privacy Statement does not apply to information collected from you offline, or to third-party websites to which AIDSVu may link. You are encouraged to review the terms of the individual privacy policies of each website you visit.
How does AIDSVu collect information online?
AIDSVu collects information in two ways:
- Passive Collection of Unidentifiable Information: AIDSVu may collect information about your visits to the website without you actively submitting such information. Unidentifiable information may be collected using various technologies, such as cookies and web beacons. Cookies are small text files that are transferred to your computer’s hard disk by a website. Web beacons (also referred to as GIF files, pixels, or Internet tags) help AIDSVu recognize a unique cookie on your browser. Your Internet browser automatically transmits to AIDSVu some of this unidentifiable information, such as the URL of the website you just visited and the browser version your computer is operating. Passive information collection technologies can make your use of AIDSVu easier by allowing AIDSVu to provide better service, customize AIDSVu based on consumer preferences, compile statistics, analyze trends, and otherwise administer and improve AIDSVu. Certain features of AIDSVu may not work without use of passive information collection technologies. Information collected by these technologies cannot be used to identify you without additional identifiable information and AIDSVu will not match additional identifiable information with information collected through the use of such tracking technologies.
- Personal Information You Submit: AIDSVu offers users the opportunity to sign up to receive updates from AIDSVu about new data or resources available on the site. To sign up for updates, we ask you to provide your name and email address in the “Email Sign Up” section on the bottom of every page on this website. Any information that you submit will be used solely by AIDSVu to provide notification of site updates. We do not share our mailing list with any other organizations or companies. To unsubscribe, simply click the unsubscribe option in any of our emails or contact us to remove your name from our lists.
