The information we collect is gathered from several sources. These include, but are not limited to: our membership, conferences, distance learning, publications, and newsletter subscriptions. From these sources we may collect postal addresses, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, and/or demographic information for those individuals that volunteer such information. For each visitor to our websites, our web server automatically collects the visitor’s domain name and IP address only, but no other identifiable information unless volunteered. In addition, we collect aggregate information on which web pages visitors access or visit.

- When you provide contact and demographic information to IHE-Europe, we may share this within IHE related organisations (i.e.: IHE-International, IHE-Services, IHE EU-Affairs).
- We share aggregate demographic information and statistics with other interested parties.
