PRIVACY POLICY

Newton Institute (“NI”) is committed to the protection of your personal information. We are also committed to allowing you to choose how NI discloses and uses your personal information. Please read this policy before visiting the NI training program or main website or before providing any personal information to NI.

 

Collecting Personal Identifiable Information

In general, you may visit our website without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. NI does collect the IP addresses and domain names of visitors for site administration purposes, such as to analyze this data for trends and statistics. No personal information is obtained through an IP address, but the patterns of usage may be tracked and monitored. We may share statistical or aggregated non-personal information about our users with advertisers, business partners, sponsors and other third parties. This data is used to customize our website content and advertising to deliver a better experience to our users. Please see the section below on cookies for more information.

While some of the information collected is required for business engagement purposes, other information is voluntarily given by the individual. The type of personal information that NI may collect could include, but not limited to, the following:

  • Your name, address, phone and email contact information
  • Information about your employment such as employer name, title, address, and the industry of your employer

 

Sensitive Information

Some countries consider some personal information particularly sensitive. NI only collects this data when voluntarily given by the individual for statistical purposes. NI does not share this information with third parties for direct marketing purposes. Such information may include the following:

  • Date of birth
  • Ethnicity, nationality, gender and other demographic information

 

Use of Personal Information

Unless otherwise stated, personal information provided by users will be used for marketing and promotional purposes only by NI.

NI collects personal information for the following purposes:

  • To register individuals for NI events and services;
  • To provide you with products or services that you have requested;
  • To communicate with you and to respond to questions that you have raised with us;
  • To administer the NI website;
  • To process your payment for NI products, services, and events;
  • To forward to you information concerning upcoming NI events;
  • To prevent and detect fraud

NI reserves the right to disclose and/or transfer personal information to a third party, if NI has reason to believe that disclosing personal information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other website users or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities. Additionally, NI may disclose personal information in response to a subpoena, warrant or other court order, or when we believe in good faith that a law, regulation, subpoena, warrant or other court order requires it – or authorizes us to do so – or to respond to an emergency situation.

NI reserves the right to disclose and/or transfer personal information to a third party in the event of a proposed or actual purchase, sale (including a liquidation, realization, foreclosure or repossession), lease, merger, amalgamation or any other type of acquisition, disposal, transfer, conveyance or financing of all or any portion of NI, or of any of the business of NI or a chapter/division thereof, in order for you to continue to receive the same products and services from the third party.

 

Mailing List Policy and Further Disclosures of Personal Information

NI is a global organization and this policy may include supplements for specific countries. We may allow your personal information to be shared with our related entities or third-party service providers based overseas. When we provide your personal information overseas, we do so in connection with providing you with requested information or services or as required or authorized under law. It is possible the overseas entities, which we share your information with, may not be subject to foreign laws that provide the same level of protection of information as your country of residence or employment, or may not be subject to any privacy obligations. Overseas entities may be required or compelled to disclose your personal information to a third party, such as an overseas authority. If you consent to us disclosing your personal information, NI will not be accountable for any breaches made by the entity, and you may not be able to seek redress in respect of that breach.

NI may share personal information with third parties engaged to assist NI in providing services to you or to carry out one or more of the purposes described above. These service providers are prohibited from using your personal information for any purpose other than to provide this assistance, and are contractually required to protect personal information disclosed by NI and to comply with the general privacy principles described in this Privacy Policy.

If you choose not to provide NI with your personal information, you may still visit many parts of the NI website. However, you may be unable to access certain options, offers and services.

If you change your mind on how NI discloses or uses your information, or wish to access, correct or update personal information (such as your address), we will endeavor to correct, update or remove the personal data you give us.

You may at any time revise this information or question it by directly contacting us at [email protected].
