Any information you share here that could personally identify you will not be sold, rented, or shared with any third parties, unless

  1. you consent,
  2. the party is an affiliate or a trusted business partner with the purpose of processing information on our behalf, or
  3. we believe in good faith that such disclosure is reasonably required by law, to enforce Terms of Service, or to protect the Foundation and its constituents from harm.

We do not track or record information about individuals and their visits, except where noted in this Privacy Policy.  The third party(ies) contracted to maintain this Web site or to provide services related to this Web site have agreed with the Siebel Scholars Foundation that they will not use the information collected for any purposes beyond which they were hired. We may share with third parties certain aggregated, non-personal information, such as how many visitors clicked on a particular news article. Such information does not identify you individually.

Your actions when visiting this Web site determine what information, if any, we receive about you.

Access to some portions of the Web site does not require you to register for an account or provide any personal information to us.

If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the Web site, read pages, or download information, we will gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you directly.

We automatically collect and store non-personally identifiable information such as the following about your visit: the Internet domain (for example, "" if you use a private Internet access account, or "" if you connect from a university's domain) and IP address (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web) from which you access our Web site; the type of browser and operating system used to access this Web site; the date and time you access this Web site; the pages you visit; and if you linked to this site from another Web site, the address of that Web site.

We use this information to help us make this Web site safe and more useful to visitors.  For example, we may employ software programs to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or alter information, and other malicious activities, or to monitor network traffic in order to provide reporting metrics (total Web site visits, number of page views, etc.).

At some point, you may choose to contact us from the Web site, in which case you should provide the personal information requested on the Web site so that we may respond to your inquiry or comment.  In the case of forwarding materials to other people, you may be required to submit your name and e-mail address.

If you are affiliated with the Siebel Scholars program, we may include your name, city and state of residence, education, work experience, brief biography, or such other information as you provided to us for the intention of posting on our public facing Web site.  

We may include the information above, as well as enhanced profile information, such as skills, professional experience, and interests, on the Community portions of the Web site.  All the information in your enhanced profile, including contact information, may be accessed by the Siebel Scholars Foundation, Siebel Scholars, and other third party members of the Siebel Scholars Community (invited by the Siebel Scholars Foundation), as determined by your privacy settings.

In order to access the Community portions of the Web site, you need to register with the Web site.  We ask for some personal information that we store and maintain, including your username and a password, which is used to protect your account from unauthorized access and to allow others and us to identify you.  Like most websites that require registration, we use web log files and cookies to track site usage.  A “cookie” is a file placed on your hard drive by a Web site that allows it to monitor your use of the Web site.  If your browser settings do not allow cookies, you will not be able to use the Community portions of the Web site.

Once you register, you can enhance your profile further by including additional personal information, as well as edit information already contained in your profile. Providing information beyond what is required at registration is optional, but enables you to better identify yourself and leverage opportunities in the Siebel Scholars network.  We collect and store this information when you submit it.  You can also include links to third party sites containing your personal information.  Again, all the information in your enhanced profile, including contact information, may be accessed by the Siebel Scholars Foundation, Siebel Scholars, and other third party members of the Siebel Scholars Community (invited by the Siebel Scholars Foundation), as determined by your privacy settings.

When you post content on the Web site, your username will be identified in the post. If you join a Siebel Scholars networking group to which we are a party (on this Web site or one that is managed by a third party) and submit your personal information, we may retain that information for the administration of our program, by us and/or other members of the Siebel Scholars community.  For example, we may use your email address or other known contact information to provide you updates about the Foundation or our conferences. In another example, a Siebel Scholar located in Baltimore may use your known residence, personal interests, and email address to organize an event in Baltimore and extend you an invitation.

As a service to you and your fellow Scholars, we may maintain, process, or enhance your profile with publicly available information, such as your public versions of social networking profiles.  You may update or delete this information from your profile at any time if you are registered, or you may contact us through this website and we will remove it.  

Please note that we may make changes to this Privacy Policy from time to time, although we do not expect significant changes.  We will post any Privacy Policy changes on this page.

If you have questions or concerns about this Privacy Policy, please feel free to contact us any time through this website or at:
