The Intern Group values individuals’ privacy and actively seeks to preserve the privacy rights of those who share information with us.
What personal information do we collect?
We collect no other information except when you deliberately send it to us, for example, by sending us an email or applying to our program.
When submitting an application for our program you are asked to submit your name, email address, nationality, phone number and your CV/resume. That said, you are able to visit our site anonymously by declining cookies.
During your interview and if you choose to participate in our program, we collect additional information from you which may include details about medical conditions, allergies or dietary requirements to ensure that we can best accommodate your needs when you’re on our program. We additionally use this information to provide benefits to you as a program alumni.
What technical personal information do we collect?
When you access our web pages, certain technical information is automatically collected. We analyze aggregate traffic/access information for resource management and site planning purposes. We reserve the right to use log detail to investigate resource management or security concerns.
Some of our web pages use “cookies.” Usually a cookie enables a website to tailor what you see according to the way you entered the site (for example, if you entered via a certain link, or if you are using a mobile device).
We also use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website. For example, we may determine that the average visitor typically views our website for a certain number of minutes, or that a certain percentage of men vs. women applied to our program. But we do not gather or disclose information that could identify those specific individuals.
Our web pages may use Google Analytics or other similar services to analyze web traffic for design purposes. In such cases, the information described above may be shared with the vendor(s) providing the analytical service. We do not control the privacy policies of these vendors.
