Humanities Indicators Web Policy
Your privacy is important to the American Academy, and we are committed to respecting
that privacy. This statement describes the personal information practices for the
Humanities Indicators Web site, including what type of information is gathered and
tracked, how the information is used, and with whom the information is shared.
In general, you can visit the Humanities Indicators Web site without telling us
who you are and without revealing any personal information about yourself. In using
specific features of the site, such as making requests to receive updates to Humanities
Indicators content, you will be asked to give us personal information, such as your
name and e-mail address, that will be needed to (for example) correspond with you
or process your request. We may also use your e-mail address to provide you with
information and additional updates about Humanities Indicators publications and
activities. Aside from aggregating data, with all personal information removed,
to allow us to check on our own performance, it is our intent that your personal
information will be used only to fulfill the request(s) you make of us, and to allow
us to contact you solely for the reasons described in this paragraph. We will not
exchange or sell your email address to third parties.
Information Gathered through Cookies and Other Technologies
In general, you can use the Humanities Indicators Web site in all ways without using
the technology known as "cookies." A cookie is a short identifier, stored on your
computer, that a site may use to identify you when you make return visits to it.
The features of the Humanities Indicators site were designed to work without cookies,
so if you turn them off, you may still browse and search our site. Performance may
be slower, however. We may collect anonymous information from visits to the Humanities
Indicators site to help us provide better user service and a better user experience.
For example, we keep track of the domains from which people visit, and we measure
aggregate user activity on the Humanities Indicators Web site, but we do so in ways
that keep users’ personal identity and information anonymous. The American Academy
or the analytic vendors it selects may use this data to analyze site usage trends
and statistics, to help us improve our site. When we collect personal data from
you in connection with a transaction (an order, e-mail request, etc.) we may extract
some information about that transaction in an anonymous format and combine it with
other anonymous information such as clickstream data. This anonymous information
is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level to help us understand trends and
patterns in our site’s usage.
The Humanities Indicators Web site may contain links to other Web sites. The American
Academy is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these Web
Questions Regarding this Statement
