Collection of Your Personal Information

SHARE does not collect personally identifiable information on this website through our conference registration process. Registration is handled through a separate online form management system and at the beginning of the process we will explain the nature of the data we will collect, why we are collecting it, how it will be used, how it will be stored, how long we will store it, how you can view a copy of it, and how you can ask for it to be deleted. We will only store information that you have willingly provided and always ask for your consent to record, store and use the information that you provide.

If you contact SHARE through the website by selecting the “Contact Us” button, an email to SHARE will be created. Please do not provide personal information beyond your name and contact details and a brief outline of your query. If you provide any further personal information you do so at your own discretion and provide any such personal details at your own risk. Your personal information is kept private and stored securely until a time it is no longer required or has no use.

If you contact SHARE through the website by selecting the “Donate” button, you will be sent to a secure page where we will request only the information required to process your transaction, including name, billing address, phone, and email address. Clicking “Process Donation” then transfers you to a secure online payment site. Any payment for SHARE services is processed entirely through a third-party provider (e.g. PayPal), and is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. When donations or payments are processed through our payment processor, the only information sent to SHARE is the name of payer, email address, amount transmitted, and the purpose of payment.

Use of Cookies

The SHARE Education Services Web site use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize SHARE Education Services pages, or register with a SHARE Education Services site or service, a cookie helps SHARE Education Services to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same SHARE Education Services website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the SHARE Education Services features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the SHARE Education Services services or Web sites you visit.
