What information do we collect? 

As a general policy, no personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, or e-mail address, is automatically collected from your visit to our website. However, certain non-personal information is recorded by the standard operation of our Internet servers, such as the type of browser being used, its operating system, and your IP address.

Our site's various conference registration forms request that you give us contact information and registration information. This information is stored in our database and sent to our administrator via email. Personally identifiable information is never sold or leased to any third parties.


All payment information is handled by a secure external payment processor. No credit card information is processed by or stored on our website.


For the private portion of our site, we use cookies to maintain site security. "Cookies" are small files or records that we place on your computer's hard drive to uniquely identify your user credentials. Our cookies contain only a unique identification number. Absolutely no personal information is stored in our cookies. You can choose to have your browser warn you every time a cookie is being sent to you or you can turn off cookie placement. If you refuse cookies, you will not be able to enter the private portion of the website. 


Security for all personally identifiable information is extremely important to us. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, fundersnet.org cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
