Information Sharing & Disclosure
Personal information is defined as information about an identifiable individual, recorded in any form. The ITHS will not share any personal information about ITHS users, sponsors, or conference attendees, except as noted below, which the ITHS considers a “researcher profile.”
As an NIH-funded institute, a central goal of the ITHS is to foster collaboration and communication within the greater research community. To advance this goal, if you are a user of ITHS services, we reserve the right to publish information describing your “researcher profile” on the ITHS website so that researchers can search our database of users for new collaborators or colleagues with specific expertise. If you receive a service or services from the ITHS (such as consultation, conferences or other ITHS supported work), we also reserve the right to provide this information to the NIH as part of our requirement to report on uses of our funding.
