Welcome to the FINGERS® Brain Health Institute´s website! We want to inform you how we, or our service providers, collect, use, and disclose your information, including personal information, via this website.

By providing personal information to us or by using the website, you agree to the terms and conditions of this privacy policy.

Active gathering of personal data

Pages of the website that include forms may ask you to submit following personal data: your e-mail address, your name, your phone number, and your organization, for you to benefit from following specified features: newsletter subscriptions and to request further information. The provision of those personal data can be a condition for enjoying the specified features of this website.

In case the above-mentioned personal data is gathered based on your consent, your active permission to process your personal data for the purposes indicated in this Privacy Policy will be asked in the respective areas of our website.

Passive data collection

As you navigate around the website, certain data can be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information), using various technologies. We and our service providers may passively collect and use information in a variety of ways, including:

Your IP Address:

An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that is attributed to a computer by the internet service provider to grant access to the internet. Normally, an IP address is generally dynamic (it changes each time connection is made with the Internet) and not static. We use IP Addresses for purposes such as calculating website usage levels, helping diagnose server problems, and administering the website.

Using Cookies, including “session cookies” and “persistent cookies”:

A cookie is a piece of information sent by a website to a web browser to enable the website to remember certain information and preferences of previous users for future use. “Session cookies” are temporary cookies that are deleted as soon as the visitor leaves his web browser or switches off his computer. Session cookies are used to improve browsing on websites and to collect static information. “Persistent cookies” are stored on the hard disc and stay there unless they are deleted. Persistent cookies are used to invoke previously provided information (such as passwords), to retrieve which components of the website visitors find the most valuable and to adapt the website to the visitor’s preferences. You will be asked when visiting our website to accept the use of cookies. However, if you do not accept them, you may experience some inconvenience in your use of the website.

Using internet labels:

Internet labels, (also known as single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs, and 1-by-1 GIFs) are smaller than cookies and provide certain information on the server such as the IP address and the web browser type of the visitor’s computer.

Using Navigation data:

Navigation data (log files, server logs and click stream data) are used by the system administrator to improve the content of the website, for market research, and to provide information to the visitor.

Through your browser:

Certain information is collected by most browsers, such as your Media Access Control (MAC) address, computer type (Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, operating system version, and Internet browser type and version. We may collect similar information, such as your device type and identifier, if you access the Site through a mobile device.

We may collect information about your mobile device, such as a unique device identifier.

  • to send you communications which you have requested and that may be of interest to you. These may include information about conferences and events, campaigns, appeals, other fundraising activities, and promotions of services;

We review our retention periods for personal information on a regular basis. We are legally required to hold some types of information to fulfil our statutory obligations. We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with us.

With your consent, we may also use and disclose information collected through the website in other ways. We may also use and disclose information we collect passively as described above, under “Passive information collection,” and for any other purpose, except where we are required to do otherwise under applicable law (for example, if we are required to treat such information as personal information).
