Privacy Policy

We want to respect your privacy concerns, and we want to make your information research convenient. This privacy policy sets out how we use and protect information that you give us when you use this and other Thomas International Center websites. By engaging with the website, you consent that you have reviewed and agree with this Privacy Policy.

We will ask you to provide certain information so we can make using our site more convenient for you. This action will identify you when you’re using our website.

We will know:

  • Your name
  • Contact information, including your email address
  • Your content interests
  • Other information you’ve provided through surveys and/or product/service offers

We require this information to provide you with better service, which includes:

  • Record keeping
  • Creating new and improved products and services
  • Customizing your website experience
  • Connecting with you by email

We don’t sell your information to third parties. However, when they want to connect with you, and we believe you may find their offer of value, we may send you an email with their offer. (To opt out of that service, please check the appropriate box below.)


We are committed to keeping your information secure. In order to prevent unauthorized disclosure, we have put in place physical, electronic and management procedures to safeguard and secure information we collect online.


A cookie is a small file that “asks permission” to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added to your hard drive, and the cookie helps us analyze your page visits on our site or lets us know when you visit a particular site that’s similar to ours. It also will improve the functionality of your visit.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages you view. We use this information to make sure you’re always updated on topics of interest. When we update the website, we use everyone’s user patterns to improve the site.

Web browsers may automatically accept cookies, but you can modify your browser setting to decline them if you prefer.

Links to other websites

We often provide links that enable you to leave our website and visit other websites of interest. We do that as a service. For example, if you want to register for a national ethics conference, you usually can find a link to register on this website. However, once you leave our site, we do not have any control over security on external websites. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for your information protection and privacy if you provide information while visiting other sites. Please read their Privacy Policy before you reveal personal information.
