Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
Some of our Web pages utilize "cookies" and other tracking technologies. A "cookie" is a small text file that may be used, for example, to collect information about website activity. Some cookies and other technologies may serve to recall Personal Information previously indicated by a Web user. Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them.
You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser, but please note that if you choose to erase or block your cookies, you will need to re-enter your original user ID and password to gain access to certain parts of the website.
If you prefer that your browser does not store this cookie information, there is a simple procedure that allows you to deny or accept this feature. In order to "opt out" of the benefits of cookies, you can manually delete your cookies by following the instructions contained in the "Help" section of your browser. Alternatively, simply click the "Opt Out Now" button provided, below. Commongene uses a limited number of third party providers to manage cookies, and when you click the link below, you will be opted out of their tracking systems. Note that separate browser windows will be opened, and you need to allow pop-ups for this to happen.
To protect your privacy, we have adopted the following principles: Notice, Choice, Security and Access/Accuracy.
Where Commongene collects Personal Information on the web, we intend to post a purpose statement that explains why Personal Information will be collected and whether we plan to share such Personal Information outside of Commongene or those working on Commongene's behalf. Commongene does not intend to transfer Personal Information without your consent to third parties who are not bound to act on Commongene's behalf unless such transfer is legally required. Sometimes the purpose statement for our web pages are set forth in privacy policies specifically set forth or linked to from that page.
You may choose whether or not to provide Personal Information to Commongene. The notice we intend to provide where Commongene collects Personal Information on the Web should help you to make this choice. If you choose not to provide the Personal Information we request, you can still visit most of Commongene's websites, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers, and services that involve our interaction with you.
If you chose to have a relationship with Commongene, such as a contractual or other business relationship or partnership, we will naturally continue to contact you in connection with that business relationship.
To have your personal information completely removed from our databases, simply contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide the name of the service for which information was provided, your full name, mailing address, phone number and email address so that we may identify you in the opt-out process. Once we receive your instruction, we will promptly take corrective action.
Wherever your Personal Information may be held within Commongene or on its behalf, we intend to take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the Personal Information that you share with us from unauthorized access or disclosure.
To the extent that you do provide us with Personal Information, Commongene wishes to maintain accurate Personal Information. Where we collect Personal Information from you on the Web, our goal is to provide a means of contacting Commongene should you need to update or correct that Information. If for any reason those means are unavailable or inaccessible, you may send updates and corrections about your Personal Information to email@example.com and we will make reasonable efforts to incorporate the changes in your Personal Information that we hold as soon as practicable.
www.commongene.org is not structured to attract children. Accordingly, we do not intend to collect Personal Information from anyone we know to be under 13 years of age.
Protecting your privacy online is an evolving area, and Commongene's websites are constantly evolving to meet these demands.
