Collecting of Non-identifying data
As is common with many websites, non-identifying data which does not allow for individual Website Users to be identified, is collected by General Fusion in order to better understand how Website Users make use of the site. This data is of the sort that is usually made available by browsers, such as which browser is being used, or date and timestamps showing when the Website Users accessed the website. This data is collected using cookies.
Collection of Identifying Data
General Fusion Inc. collects data that can be used to personally identify Website Users in only one instance; when a user signs-up for the General Fusion newsletter. The collected data is limited to a name, email address, company name and IP address, which allows for any newsletters to be addressed and sent via electronic mail accordingly.
The use of this data is limited to delivery of the General Fusion email newsletter. The newsletter consists of a regular quarterly publication, as well as a series of four emails introducing readers to the history of fusion development. These introductory emails are sent over a twelve week period from the date of subscription. Emails may also be sent on an ad-hoc basis notifying newsletter subscribers about breaking news or events in the world of fusion.
Collected data will be treated with utmost care by the Administrator to protect the interests of Website Users whom the data relates to, and processed in accordance with the law; that is, it will be collected and used only for the purposes expressly noted in this policy.
We use web beacons in our emails. When we send emails to Members, we may track behavior such as who opened the emails and who clicked the links. This allows us to measure the performance of our email campaigns and to improve what articles and content we feature. To do this, we include single pixel gifs, also called web beacons, in emails we send. Web beacons allow us to collect information about when you open the email, your IP address, your browser or email client type, and other similar details.
