Before we send you an invitation for registration as a member of UCP-SARnet we ask you to provide personal information such as: name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, work affiliation and information about your interests, expertise and community experience. Only persons who provide us with the requested personally identifiable information indicating that their personal profile is relevant to the mission of our network will be invited to register. We need this information to protect our network and this data will not be shared with anybody besides the members of UCP-SARnet Executive Team.
At the moment of registration you will be asked to create your professional profile. This profile is public and can be traced by Google and other search engines. The editing features for the profile allows you to set privacy settings for selected information you wish to make public (visible by all) and those you want visible only to UCP-SARnet members. Our Executive Team does not have access to personal profiles and you are responsible for the choice of information you want to place within them.
It is required, however, that your professional profile will contain information about your educational background, work affiliation, area of expertise, interests and community experience as they are absolutely necessary for networking (see below: How We Use Personal Information).
We, our service providers, advertisers and partners may collect various types of non-personally identifiable information when you visit any of our sites. A representative list of the types of non-personally identifiable information we may collect include: current Internet protocol address and type of browser you are using (e.g., Firefox, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using, (e.g., Microsoft Windows or Mac OS), the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, Earthlink), the web pages you have visited, the content you have accessed and the advertisements you have been shown and/or clicked on.
