If you register online for membership, we will request certain personally identifiable information about you (such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, and professional information). This information enables us to process your application and communicate with you about it. In addition, we may use such information to improve our membership services, keep you updated about our work, analyse website usage, and improve our website's content and layout.
Other personal information
Through our site or otherwise, you may decide to submit personal information (such as your name, postal address and email address) for purposes other than your membership application (such as receiving an email newsletter or further information as to a particular topic). We collect and store this information and use it for the purposes for which you submitted it. In addition, we may use such information to improve our membership services, keep you updated about our work, analyse website usage, and improve our website's content and layout. We do not share this information with any third parties except those that assist us with certain functions, as described above.
Submission of content
In connection with your membership, you may decide to submit, through our site or otherwise, personally identifiable information (including articles, opinions, statements or comments, position papers, documents). All information entered into the interactive pages of the MSF association will be viewed only by fellow members of the association. No information stored or submitted on the association website is used to assess your qualifications as an employee or volunteer for MSF.
Updating your information
We work to process and maintain accurately the information that you share with us. If you have registered as a member and would like to correct or update your personal data or to adjust your preferences, you can do so by logging in to your account and changing your profile information, or by contacting us via the contact form.
The personal information that you provide is stored in a secure location and accessible only by designated employees trained in the proper handling of member information. We employ industry standard techniques such as firewalls, encryption, intrusion detection, and site monitoring to protect your personally identifiable information from unauthorised access by users inside and outside the organisation. You should be aware, however, that "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet; third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications.
MSF does not collect any personally identifying information from you when you visit our sites unless you choose to provide such information to us.
You can browse the MSF association(s) pages without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. The information we gather during normal browsing comes from two sources: standard server logs collect information such as the IP (Internet Protocol) address, domain name, browser type, operating system, and information such as the site that referred you to us, the files you downloaded, the pages you visited, and the dates/times of those visits.
Additionally, if you have come into the site from one of our newsletters or from a site that has requested a link to us, we will ask your browser to accept a cookie that carries a general marketing source code with you as you browse through the site, in order to help us match referring sites to responses. This cookie does not capture or hold any personally identifying information about you, and is deleted when you end your session by leaving our site or closing your browser.
This site contains links to other sites. Unless we expressly state otherwise, MSF makes no representations whatsoever concerning the content of those sites. The fact that MSF has provided a link to a site is not an endorsement, authorisation, sponsorship, or affiliation with respect to such site, its owners, or its providers. There are risks associated with using any information, software, or products found on the Internet, and MSF cautions you to make sure that you understand these risks before retrieving, using, relying upon, or purchasing anything via the Internet.
