Privacy Policy

This policy covers the treatment of all personal information that the Institute of International Education, Inc. ("IIE") collects when you visit our websites. At IIE, we understand that privacy is a very important issue for visitors to our website.

Information and use

Like all website owners, IIE receives and records information from your browser in our website server logs. Whenever you request a page through your browser, the navigation and clickstream data, such as IP address, browser (and version), operating system, date, time, and the site from which you came are stored in a log file. IIE uses software programs to create summaries from these statistics for such purposes as evaluating content worth, Website and system administration, and anonymous user analysis. This information cannot be used to identify specific individuals.

Aside from this standard tracking data, the only other personal information our site collects about you is such data as you knowingly provide to us.  IIE is the sole owner of any information collected on this site. We will not sell, market, share, rent or otherwise distribute this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. We will only release personal information to another person or company with your consent or to the extent required by law.

In addition, IIE will not sell, market, share, rent or otherwise distribute any information provided to us by our donors to any third parties, except as required by law. Donors to IIE may contact the Development Office at any time regarding their personal information and to request corrections to such information.

Keeping your personal information secure is a top priority for IIE. Personal information is private and confidential; accordingly, the information provided is stored in a secure location, is accessible only by designated employees, trained in the proper handling of customer information, and is used only for the purpose for which the information is collected. Whenever IIE should hire other organizations to provide support services, we will require them to conform to our privacy standards and allow us to audit them for compliance.

External links

This website may contain links to other sites. Unless we expressly state otherwise, IIE makes no representations whatsoever concerning the content of those sites. The fact that IIE has provided a link to a site is not an endorsement, authorization, sponsorship, or affiliation with respect to such site, its owners, or its providers. There are risks associated with using any information, software, or products found on the Internet, and IIE cautions you to make sure that you understand these risks before retrieving, using, relying upon, or purchasing anything via the Internet. In addition, we encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. These other sites may collect or solicit personal data or send their own cookies to your computer. Please be aware that IIE is not responsible for the privacy practices of other websites. This policy applies to all webpages under our domains and not to any webpages not under our domains, regardless of any hyperlinks from a webpage under our domains to a webpage not under our domains. Please check the privacy statements of these other sites for more information about their policies on collection and use of personal information.

U.S. Copyright Infringement Claims

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials available on the Websites infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send to IIE a written notice by mail or e-mail, requesting that IIE remove such material or block access to it. If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongly filed a notice of copyright infringement against you, the DMCA permits you to send to IIE a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. See http://www.copyright.gov/ for details.
 
Notices and counter-notices must be sent in writing to IIE’s DMCA agent as follows:
 
By mail to:
Institute of International Education, Inc.
Attn: DMCA Agent
809 United Nations Plaza
New York , NY 10017 
 
By e-mail to dmcaagent@iie.org; or by fax (212) 984-5536. IIE’s DMCA agent’s phone number is (212) 984-5493. 
 
We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a DMCA notice or counter-notice.
