Note also that whenever you post personal information in publicly accessible places, such as chat rooms or message boards, this information becomes available to anyone with access to the Internet. Therefore, we recommend that you refrain from posting any information you do not want seen in these public areas.

What information does World Scholar International Honor Society collect?
 
At different times, World Scholar International Honor Society may collect five types of information about you.
 
First, we use a feature of your browser called a cookie to assign identification to your computer. The unique user ID contained within your cookie automatically identifies your computer - but not you - to our servers every time you visit our site. This allows us to "remember" information about your preferences and passwords and allows you to move within our Web Site without reintroducing yourself. Cookies by themselves cannot be used to find out the identity of any user, but may be correlated with identity information in our log files. The help portion of toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, turning off the cookies feature using your browser's preference options may limit your ability to utilize many of our features.
 
Second, we keep track of your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Web site. Your IP address (the address the Internet uses to identify your computer) is also used to gather broad demographic information about you, such as your location and your Internet service provider. World Scholar International Honor Society may also collect aggregate information on how our users are utilizing the site. This might include information regarding traffic patterns through the site and search queries.
 
Third, we log browser types, access times, URLs from which visitors came to our site and URLs viewed by visitors while on our site. Except as otherwise stated in this privacy policy, we do not provide this information to third parties, except in aggregate form.

Fifth, we may collect credit card information if you register for any paid services on our site. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to protect credit card transactions through encryption and the use of Secure Internet Payment Services, although we cannot guarantee complete security.

World Scholar International Honor Society and its subsidiaries do not store any credit card information.
