You can use the site in two ways that have implications for your personally identifiable information (“personal information”), that is, information you provide that identifies you as an individual user in the Phyrtual website, including your name, email address, mailing address or any other information that allows another person to identify you.
We apply the following norms to the use of your personally identifiable information:
- We shall not profit commercially (i.e., selling or renting) from your personally identifiable information.
- You may contact us whenever you have a privacy concern. Simply write to you privacy address. You can also change anytime you wish any information you have provided in your personal profile.
Phyrtual.org contains links to other websites belonging to organizations that are part of projects and communities inside the website. These other websites have their own content and privacy policies that are not the responsibility of the FMD. It is recommended that you read the privacy policies of these websites and judge them independently from Phyrtual.org.
Phyrtual collects two types of information. On the one hand, information you provide explicitly (e.g., username, email, photo, comments) when you register in the website and create your own personal profile, or interact within a blog, chat, forum, wiki or other instruments potentially provided by Phyrtual. On the other hand, information you provide implicitly through the use of the website (e.g., such as patterns of use of content in the website, IP address, login times).
Phyrtual also collect information you provide about other users you may wish to invite to link directly with you in the website. This information contains the name and email address of your contact and the text of your invitation message.
The information that you provide explicitly in your registration and personal profile is visible to all users of Phyrtual (i.e., registered and unregistered users). Implicit information related to your activity in the website, such as time of registration, comments and upload of documents will also be visible to all users in your profile.
The FMD will use this information to improve the technical and service performance of the Phyrtual website, for instance, for diagnosing and solving problems. Your information will also be used to perform correlation analysis leading to the identification of other users who share similar dreams, interests and activities with you.
Phyrtual will make you aware of these other “similar” users and you will decide whether you wish to establish contact with this other user or not. Information you provide about other users you decide to invite to link directly with you in Phyrtual will be used to send the invitation and reminders in case the invitation is not immediately accepted.
We may share your personally identifiable information with other groups in support of their social (educational, cultural) missions and the furtherance of Phyrtual.org vision and mission. However, we shall only do so with your consent.
We may partner with other organizations offering services that add value to the environment and experience offered by Phyrtual. It will be your decision to use or not these added-value services. In case, you decide to use them, Phyrtual will make available your personal information to the partnering organization.
We may subcontract third parties for the development of new services or instruments that significantly enhance the value you obtain from Phyrtual.org. Your personal information will only be shared with a third party to the extent and limit that is required to provide you with particular services you have requested and/or consented.
In the extraordinary situation of suspected illegal activity damaging you, and/or Phyrtual users, and/or the normal operation of the website, and/or the general public, your information will be disclosed in accordance with the requirement of the law.
Registration and submission of personal information to Phyrtual is reserved for persons over the age of 13. The protection of children is the responsibility of parents and/or legal guardians. We ask Phyrtual users to be alert and make us aware of the possible presence of personally identifiable information provided by users under the age of 13.
