Activity Logging. When You use the ECLIPSE Site, which may be hosted in part or its entirety by a third party, the ECLIPSE Site will collect information indirectly and automatically (through, for example, the use of “cookies” or Your “IP address”) about Your activities. ECLIPSE uses this activity information (the “Activity Information”) for internal purposes such as to administer the ECLIPSE Site, improve the ECLIPSE Site, and help ECLIPSE understand how the ECLIPSE Site is being used including the demographics and “clickstreams” of its visitors. “Cookies” are small pieces of information stored on Your hard drive, not on the ECLIPSE Site. You are always free to decline cookies if Your browser permits, but in that case, some portions of the ECLIPSE Site may not operate properly. An “IP address” is a number that is automatically assigned to Your computer when You use the Internet.
Personally Identifiable Information. The ECLIPSE Site is designed so that You may generally browse it without providing any Personally Identifiable Information (defined below). Certain areas of the ECLIPSE Site, however, may require or allow the voluntarily submission of Personally Identifiable Information (for example, registration to receive ECLIPSE publications). ECLIPSE uses Your Personally Identifiable Information for the purposes for which it was submitted by You to ECLIPSE and for ECLIPSE to send you publications and invitations that may be of interest to you. Except as otherwise set forth on this Page, ECLIPSE does not share Your Personally Identifiable Information with third parties. “Personally Identifiable Information” means information that would allow someone to identify or contact You, such as Your name, physical or electronic mail address, and telephone number; provided, however, that Personally Identifiable Information does not include aggregated information that, by itself, does not permit the identification of individual persons and does not include the Activity Information.
Removal of Personally Identifiable Information. ECLIPSE will use reasonable efforts to remove Your Personally Identifiable Information from our then current ECLIPSE Site at any time upon Your written request to . Such removal of Personally Identifiable Information will not ensure the permanent removal of such Personally Identifiable Information from the ECLIPSE Site. For example, such Personally Identifiable Information may remain in ECLIPSE’s archival or backup copies of the ECLIPSE Site.
Additional Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information. ECLIPSE may share Personally Identifiable Information with third parties, including affiliated firms and third parties performing services for or on behalf of ECLIPSE. Such services may include communications, database, event management, hosting, mailing, and marketing services. Additionally, ECLIPSE cannot fully ensure that Your Personally Identifiable Information will not be disclosed to third parties. For example, ECLIPSE may be legally obligated to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, third parties may circumvent ECLIPSE’s security measures to unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or an error may occur in the administration of the ECLIPSE Site. In the unlikely event that ECLIPSE needs to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries, ECLIPSE may, and You authorize ECLIPSE to, disclose any information about You to government officials as permitted by applicable law.
