The International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories (I2SL) is a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to provide education and information to the sustainable laboratory community. I2SL is committed to protecting the privacy of users of its website and related applications. The following policy applies to I2SL and its website, membership data portal, and conference Web application. It also applies to the websites of I2SL’s affiliated chapters.
With respect to personal data received, I2SL is subject to the regulatory enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and relevant U.S. laws and regulations. Users who reside outside the United States and choose to use our website/Web-based applications understand and agree that their information may be processed in accordance with the laws of the United States, where laws regarding processing of information may be less stringent than the laws of other countries.
This policy describes how I2SL collects and uses information from its members, visitors to its website or app, and attendees at its annual Conference and Technology Fair, including Personally Identifiable Information (PII). For the purposes of this policy, PII is defined as any data or personal information that can be used on its own or in conjunction with other information to identify, locate, or contact an individual. Visitors to the I2SL website and related applications may be asked to input name, email address, mailing address, phone number, or payment information.
I2SL receives PII from individuals for membership initiation/renewal fees; educational offerings; event registration; and conference attendance, exhibition, and other conference-related activities. I2SL is responsible for processing of PII it receives from members, conference attendees, and purchasers of its educational offerings. It may subsequently transfer data to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf, including Web hosting services, support contractors, and local, state, or international chapters of I2SL.
I2SL and its agents use PII to process payments, update membership status, communicate with conference participants, and verify continuing education credit for participants in its educational offerings. I2SL may periodically send emails regarding conference registrations, speaker coordination, webinar participation, or promotion for I2SL educational offerings. Any promotional email I2SL distributes to its network of contacts contains a link to “unsubscribe” from the list.
We do not sell PII. We do not share, trade, or otherwise transfer PII to outside parties unless we provide users with advanced notice. This does not apply to I2SL contract support and other parties that assist the organization in operating its website or serving members; I2SL Chapter officers; Annual Conference sponsors and exhibitors; and other educational partners.
I2SL and our agents use “cookies” and similar technologies on our website and mobile applications in order to track browsing behavior, links clicked, items purchased, and data about how its members, conference attendees, and other users use and interact with our services. Users can change cookie setting in the Options or Preferences of their internet browsers.
Any users wishing to have PII they provided to I2SL deleted can contact firstname.lastname@example.org to have their data removed from I2SL’s and its agents’ data storage.
