The Near East Archaeological Society (NEAS) has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for various websites owned by us, including, but not limited to:
Information Automatically Logged
We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our web sites. For your own security, your IP address may also be used to help identify you and your shopping cart, and to gather broad demographic information. NEAS does not sell, rent, loan, trade, or lease any personal information collected at our sites, including membership forms or email lists.
Some links on our site(s) may link to other web sites that use outside companies to display ads on their sites. We have no control over these ads, and they may contain cookies. Cookies received with banner ads are collected by these other ad companies, and we do not have access to this information.
Registration Forms, Order Forms, and Surveys
Our site(s) may utilize some inquiry forms, registration forms, order forms, and surveys that may require users to provide contact information (like their name, email, and postal address), and demographic information (like their zip code and age). This information may be used to ship purchases, send information about our organization, send promotional material from some of our partners or affiliates, and to get in touch with a client, customer, donor, or member. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below. Any financial information collected is used only for recordkeeping related to NEAS, donors, and members. Demographic and profile data collected at our site(s) may be shared with educational and government authorities on an aggregate basis.
Our site(s) may contain links to other sites. NEAS is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites.
Some content on our site(s) and some features are provided in cooperation with outside companies. NEAS does not require nor seek full partnerships with most of these companies. Some fall into the general definition of "affiliates" in so much as we have agreed to exchange space on our web site to display select content and links to their sites, products, and services. Content providers are designated as such, and all external links beyond the our root directory addresses should be assumed as affiliates whose content does not reside within our control. We do not own or have access to private information that may be gathered by any of these companies. Any information shared with us on their part is limited to aggregate information regarding their company, web site(s), and traffic as a whole.
Our sites have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. We build and maintain our own pages via secure servers that require multiple-layered passcode access. We record identifying information about machines obtaining passcode access, including IP address, time and duration of access. In event of any unauthorized access, we will cooperate fully with appropriate authorities and prosecute any violators to the fullest extent of the law.
