The Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute and the Michigan Psychoanalytic Society (MPI-MPS) are committed to protecting your privacy. This policy applies only to materials on our site and explains how we collect and use data gathered from our users. By using our website, you are consenting to the use of your data as described below.
Collection of your Personal Information
We collect personally identifiable information only at your specific request, such as when you subscribe to one of our mailing lists or submit your information in a form.
There is information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by software installed on our site by our webhost. This information can include your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by us for the purpose of understanding our users' methods of accessing information so that we may make improvements in keeping with user needs.
This site uses a tool which collects your requests for pages and passes elements of them to search engines to assist them in indexing this site. We control the configuration of the tool and are responsible for any information sent to the search engines.
We request that you refrain from sending any confidential or sensitive material through our email forms, as we do not have encryption technology in place. Messages from the website are normally routed directly to the intended recipient, but occasionally a message may be re-routed to the webmaster. This happens if for some reason your message is rejected by the email server of your intended recipient. You will be notified that your message has been re-routed if the non-delivery message reaches the webmaster.
Links to Other Sites
The MPI-MPS cannot be responsible for the data gathering practices of other sites to which we provide links. Please consult the privacy policies of other sites you visit after leaving our site through links provided by us.
Use of your Personal Information
We collect and use your personal information to operate our website and deliver notices at your request. We may use your email address to notify you of other services or events which may be of interest to you or to solicit your feedback about our website and our organization. We respect all requests to unsubscribe to any list at any time. We do not share, sell or lend our email address lists with any group or entity outside of MPI-MPS.
The MPI-MPS website administrator will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on the MPI, the MPS or the website; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of MPI-MPS; or, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the website, members of the MPI-MPS, or the public.
