We are committed to conducting our organization in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained. However, no internet connection, website, or e-mail transmission is ever 100% safe and secure. We cannot be held responsible for anything that happens to your information or account due to unforeseen events or circumstances not under our control. In the event of a security breach, we will notify affected customers within a 72 hour time period. We will provide information relating to the security incident as it becomes known or as is reasonably requested.
When you visit our website, you may provide us with two different types of information: personal information that is collected on a volunteer basis and website-use information collected on an aggregate basis.
We may use a variety of social media plugins and widgets. These are provided and operated by third-party companies (e.g. Facebook). Social media plugins may collect information such as the page you are visiting on our website, your IP address, and may set cookies to enable the plugin to function properly.
If you are logged into your account with the third-party company, then the third party may be able to link information about your visit to and use of our website to your social media account with them. Similarly, your interactions with the plugin may be recorded by the third party.
The following plugins are used on our website: Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube.
Your personal information may be stored and processed in any country where we operate or in which we engage with service providers. These include, but may not be limited to, incoming agencies, hotels, airlines, bus companies, and insurance companies that we employ in order to fulfill your program requirements and reservations. By using UIW services, you understand that your information will be transferred and used only in conjunction with your specific academic program and university business and compliance requirements. We only provide these companies with data that they require to perform their specific service.
Your information may also be provided to public authorities such as customs or immigration if required by them, or as required by law. Your information is shared under the jurisdiction of applicable laws and regulations. We do not sell or otherwise market your personal data to third parties.
You may request access to all information concerning your personal identity that we collect in our database by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You have the right to rectify any information that you find to be inaccurate. You may also request that we delete personal data from our database.
Occasionally, information that you request to be deleted will be retained in certain files for a period of time in the framework of our legal retention. In addition, some types of information may be stored longer or indefinitely on “back up” systems or within log files due to technical constraints, or financial or legal requirements.
We will retain your personal data for as long as needed or permitted with regards to the purpose(s) for which it was obtained, in consistency with applicable law, and for statutory claims limitation periods where your personal information may be relevant to any possible liability we may have to you.
We use encryption (SSL) to protect data transmitted to and from our website. Wherever the ESC collects personal data, we seek to use reasonable technical and organizational security measures to protect all information within our organization from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, hacking attacks, destruction or any other problems which may occur.
UIW ensures that any person or entity that is authorized to process customer data will do so under an appropriate obligation of confidentiality.
In the event of a security incident, UIW will notify affected customers within 72 hours and will provide timely information relating to the security incident as it becomes known or as is reasonably requested.

If any damage occurs by the use of information presented on external pages, only the author of the respective website might be liable, not the party who has linked UIW to these websites. Furthermore, UIW is not liable for any postings or messages published by users of discussion boards, guestbooks or mailing lists provided on these external pages.
