Privacy Statement

Your privacy is important to Dubai Harvard Foundation for Medical Research (DHFMR), and we are committed to respecting that privacy. This statement describes the personal information practices for the DHFMR website, including what type of information is gathered and tracked, how the information is used, and with whom the information is shared.

Personal Information

In general, you can visit the Dubai Harvard Foundation for Medical Research website without telling us who you are and without revealing any personal information about yourself.

In using some specific features of the site, such as the online contact form, you will be asked to give us personal information, such as your name or e-mail address, that will be needed to correspond with you, for example, or provide you with newsletters via e-mail or access to partners-only areas of our website. We use personal information you provide to fulfill the requests you make of us, to share with you important notices, and, in aggregated form, to allow us to determine broad demographics of our users. We will not exchange or sell your e-mail address to third parties except where necessary to fulfill your request.

Information Security and Quality

We intend to protect the integrity of your personal information. To do this, we have implemented appropriate technical and organizational measures to help us keep your information secure, accurate, current, and complete. We will make a sincere effort to respond in a timely manner to your requests to correct inaccuracies in your personal information, to remove personal information you do not want stored, or to answer any questions you may have about our use of your information.

Information Gathered through Cookies and Other Technologies

In general, you can use the public portions of the Dubai Harvard Foundation for Medical Research website in all ways without using the technology known as "cookies." A cookie is a short identifier, stored on your computer, that a site may use to identify you when you make return visits to it. The publicly-accessible features of the DHFMR website were designed to work without cookies, so if you turn them off, you may still browse, search, and otherwise make use of our website. Certain areas of the DHFMR website designed for our partners or other specific groups of users do require cookies, for security purposes. You must have cookies enabled in order to use any "login" or "remember me" features of the website.

We collect anonymous information from visits to the DHFMR website to help us provide better customer service and a better customer experience. For example, we keep track of the domains from which people visit, or common search terms used, and we measure aggregate user activity on the DHFMR website, but we do so in ways that keep user's personal identity and information anonymous. DHFMR or the analytic vendors it selects may use this data to analyze site usage trends and statistics, to help us improve our site.

When we collect personal data from you in connection with a transaction (a contact form submission, etc.) we may extract some information about that transaction in an anonymous format and combine it with other anonymous information such as clickstream data. This anonymous information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level to help us understand trends and patterns in our site's usage.
