THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We may collect and store any information you enter on our websites or give to us in any other way. The type and amount of information NewYorkBIO collects about you varies according to how you use NewYorkBIO Sites.
Collection of Personal Information
Many of the features on our websites are offered without collecting any Personal Information from you. “Personal Information? means personally identifiable information, such as your name, position, company, street address, telephone number, fax number, date of birth, e-mail address and other identifiers that permit physical or online identification of a specific individual. You can browse most of our websites and view much of our content on our websites anonymously.
When you make a purchase, or sign up for a paid service, we will also collect your credit card information as additional Personal Information. We will use credit card information only to complete the transactions you have requested.
Providing us with Personal Information is entirely optional and voluntary; however, if you do not provide the Personal Information requested, we may elect to not make the related service available for your use.
Collection of Non-Personal Information
We may also collect and store non-personally identifiable information about your visit whenever you interact with our websites. For example, we may automatically collect your domain name; IP address; means of entry to the site; the type of browser and operating system used to access the site; the date, time and duration of each visit; and the pages you visit.
If you have provided us with your e-mail address to subscribe to one of our services or to receive notifications or updates about one of the offerings at our sites and you wish to change your address or no longer wish to receive these communications, simply follow the unsubscribe instructions that appear in these e-mail communications.
Whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online, for example, on message boards, through email, in chat areas, and other forums, that information can be collected and used by others. Please use your discretion and be careful when you provide any personal information in these publicly accessible areas. No data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be perfectly secured. As a result, while we try to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
For certain Services, it may be necessary to collect payment to conclude the transaction. In such circumstances we use industry-standard secure socket layer (SSL) encryption. We do not sell or rent your personal financial information.
All sales are final.
WHO MAY USE COLLECTED INFORMATION
Information collected, whether personal or non-personal, may be shared within NewYorkBIO and affiliated companies, and externally with third parties, such as members and business partners. NewYorkBIO also reserves the right to sell or license the use of information collected from our websites. However, it is our policy to not disclose externally with third parties personal information collected on our site, except in the following instances:
The Personal Information provided to us may be transferred, disclosed, sold, licensed or shared with third parties to fulfill a request for our products, programs, or services and to those who may be engaged by us specifically to handle and deliver certain activities (e.g., sweepstakes) and perform other technical and processing functions, such as sending e-mail, fulfilling orders, or otherwise operating our sites. They have access to Personal Information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
Information provided to us through correspondence may be shared (as appropriate) with other interested parties, including our members.
We may also disclose Personal Information to third parties (and our members) (1) when required by law or when the information is pertinent to judicial or government investigations or proceedings; (2) to protect and defend our rights and property; or (3) when necessary to protect our interests, our website(s), the safety of its users, or the public.
Other than as set forth above, we currently do not intend to share your Personal Information with third parties for other purposes.
