Nurses International




Nurses International (NI) recognizes that an individual’s privacy is very important and that they have a right to control their personal information. Nurses International acknowledges that when an individual provides personal information about themselves to another party, it is an act of trust. In response, Nurses International takes upholding an individual’s privacy very seriously. Unless an individual gives Nurses International explicit consent to act otherwise, the following policy will govern how Nurses International handles an individual’s personal information and safeguard their privacy.


The principles contained in this privacy document apply to all personal information collected or submitted to Nurses International.

1. What information of yours does Nurses International collect?

Nurses International collects two different types of information. One type is voluntary information, which you provide, such as event registration, membership, or shipping and billing information. The other type of information Nurses International collects is user information provided by your computer each time you visit, such as IP address and browser. The information that Nurses International collects helps us provide you with information and services. We may combine information from other sources with the information that we collect.

2. What does Nurses International do with the information that is collected?

Any information you provide to Nurses International or obtained through this website may be used for organizational purposes. NI will not sell, rent, or lease your personal information to commercial entities. Nurses International will not disclose your name, address, e-mail address, or phone number without your express consent unless disclosure is necessary to comply with laws or relevant legal proceedings. Nurses International may offer services to you, such as chat rooms, message boards, or other similar discussion forums. Please be aware that any information you divulge in these arenas is deemed public information and is not protected.

3. What are “cookies” and how does Nurses International use them?

Cookies are information that a website transfers to an individual’s PC for record-keeping purposes (e.g., if you are a Wall Street Journal Interactive user, a cookie on your PC allows you to go directly to the WSJ instead of giving your username and password each time). Cookies can save your preferences when you are at a site. Cookies are an industry standard, and most major websites use them.

Nurses International may use cookies to help us see which areas of our website are more popular and which are not and how they are being used so that we can improve and update our website to meet the needs of our users more accurately. At some point in the future, if Nurses International decides to offer personalized services to its users, we will use cookies to make that personalization and customization of the Nurses International website possible.

Most browsers (Microsoft Explorer, and Netscape) are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to either refuse all cookies or notify you when you are receiving a cookie and allow you to decide whether or not to accept it. We do not use cookies to obtain personal information about you before or after you leave the Nurses International sites.

4. How does linking to other sites affect my privacy protections?

As a courtesy, Nurses International may provide links to other sites that are neither owned nor controlled by Nurses International. Some of these sites may use the Nurses International logo. These third-party sites, however, are NOT subject to or bound by the Nurses International Privacy Policy. Such third-party sites may or may not have their privacy policies and may or may not collect personal information from you or place cookies on your browser. Nurses International is not responsible for the privacy policies, any information collection practices of these sites, or any resulting damages.

5. What type of security procedures are in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of your information?

The security of the information that you provide to us is very important to us. Consequently, we have taken several measures to protect your information. All sensitive information transactions, such as your credit/debit card number and expiration date, are conducted using an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) connection. This connection provides increased security to the information transmitted to our website.

6. How does Nurses International protect the privacy of children?

Nurses International encourages parents and guardians to spend time with their children online. No information should be submitted to or posted on Nurses International’s website by users 13 years old and younger without the consent of their parent or guardian. Unless otherwise disclosed during collection, Nurses International will not provide any personally identifying information, regardless of its source, to any third party for any purpose for our users 13 years and younger. If any services or features on the site require registration, a user 13 years old and younger will be required to provide the email of the parent or guardian, which will allow us to notify that person that the child has registered for a service or feature. Parental or guardian consent will consist of an email from that person to Nurses International stating that they know the child is using the website. Identifying a user as 13 or under is not easy, and Nurses International will not be held responsible for anyone misrepresenting as over 13 when they are not.

7. Nurses International reserves the right to change or amend this policy.

Nurses International reserves the right to change, amend, or restate this policy.

8. Your affirmative consent to Nurses International’s collection and use of personally identifiable information.

By using Nurses International’s website, you are giving us your express consent to use all the information we collect about you in the manner described in this policy. This includes the release of such information to third parties as described above.
