How do we use your information?
IEEE LINK uses (and, where specified, shares) your personal information for the following purposes:
To provide support or other services. IEEE LINK may use your personal information to provide you with support or other services that you have ordered or requested. IEEE LINK may also use your personal information to respond directly to your requests for information, including registrations for newsletters, webinars, or other specific requests.
To provide online forums and social networks. Some services available on the websites permit you to participate in interactive discussions, post comments, or other content to a bulletin board or exchange. Some of these services are moderated; all may be accessed for technical reasons (for example, for improvements or fixes). TEDX does not control the content that users post to these forums or social networks. You should carefully consider whether you wish to submit personal information to these forums or social networks and tailor any content you submit appropriately and in accordance with the relevant terms of use. You should also review any additional terms and conditions that may govern your use of these services, including terms related to sharing your personal information and receiving communications.
To select content, improve quality, and facilitate use of the websites. TEDx may use your personal information, including the information gathered as a result of site navigation and electronic protocols and cookies (including third-party cookies), to help create and personalize website content, improve website quality, track marketing campaign responsiveness, evaluate page response rates, conduct usability testing, and facilitate your use of the websites (for example, to facilitate navigation and the login process, avoid duplicate data entry, enhance security, keep track of shopping cart additions, and preserve order information between sessions).
To protect TEDx content and services. We may use your information to prevent potentially illegal activities and to enforce our terms and conditions. We also use a variety of technological systems to detect and address anomalous activity and to screen content to prevent abuse, such as spam. These efforts may, on occasion, result in a temporary or permanent suspension or termination of some functions for some users.
To get feedback or input from you. In order to deliver the best services of most interest to our customers, from time to time, we may ask members, customers, volunteers, and website visitors to provide us input and feedback (for example through surveys, usability studies, focus groups).
To protect TEDx information assets as well as your own personal data. The TEDx Information Security Program protects the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of TEDx information assets by following a risk management approach based on policies, standards, guidelines, and procedures to meet security objectives while supporting business and operational goals.
How can you control your information?
You can control the information we have about you and how we use it in several ways.
If you are a registered user, you can review, revise, and correct the personal data that you have provided to TEDx via your Account/MyProfile.
Personal data about minors and children
IEEE LINK does not knowingly collect data from or about children under 16 without the permission of parent(s)/guardian(s). If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under 16, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under age 16, please contact us.
How will you know if the Privacy Policy is changed?
IEEE LINK may update its Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make any material changes we will notify you by email if you have a IEEE LINK Account, or by means of a notice on this website prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.
Logging practices
IEEE LINK automatically records the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of visitors. The IP address is a unique number assigned to every computer on the internet. Generally, an IP address changes each time you connect to the internet (it is a "dynamic" address). Note, however, that if you have a broadband connection, depending on your individual circumstance, the IP address that we collect may contain information that could be deemed identifiable. This is because, with some broadband connections, your IP address doesn't change (it is "static") and could be associated with your personal computer.
Cookies and web beacons
Cookies and web beacons are electronic placeholders that are placed on your device by websites to track your individual movements on that website over time. IEEE LINK uses both session-based cookies (which last only for the duration of the user's session) and persistent cookies (which remain on your device and provides information about the session you are in and waits for the next time you use that site again).
These cookies and web beacons provide useful information to IEEE LINK, enabling us to recognize repeat users, facilitate the user's access to and use of our sites, allow us to track usage behaviour, and balance the usage of our websites on all IEEE LINK web servers.
Tracking cookies, third-party cookies, and other technologies such as web beacons may be used to process additional information, enable non-core functionalities on the IEEE LINK website and enable third-party functions (such as a social media "share" link). We may also include web beacons and other similar technology in promotional email messages to determine whether the messages have been opened.
Do Not Track (DNT)
The online advertising industry has self-regulatory initiatives designed to provide consumers with a choice in the types of ads they may see online and to conveniently opt out from online behavioural ads served by some or all of the companies participating in these programs. Our websites do not respond to DNT consumer browser settings.
The IEEE LINK privacy officer will ensure proper communication with the relevant regulatory authority for privacy. The privacy officer will lead investigative action, complaint handling and data breach notification. The privacy officer will also monitor regulatory changes and consult the regulatory authority where implementation of a regulatory or technological change leads to doubt.
