Effective Date: October 2021
Welcome to the Next Engineers Website ("Site"). GE and FHI 360, Inc. (FHI 360) have partnered to offer the GE Next Engineers Program (GE and FHI 360 are collectively referred to throughout as “we,” “us,” and “ours”).
We understand the importance of protecting your personal information. We are committed to being transparent and fair when we collect and use your personal information and to complying with the data protection laws that apply in the countries where we operate. We adopted the principles and requirements of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as the basis for its general privacy practices.
Unless stated otherwise, this Notice does not apply to any third-party sites that may link to, or be accessible from, our websites.
Personal Information We Collect and How We Collect It
The information we collect during your visits to www.NextEngineers.org depends upon what you do while visiting our Site.
If you visit our Site to read or download materials, we collect and store only the following information about you (“Visitor”):
- Date, time, country and city location from which you access our Site
- Internet address of the website from which you came to visit our Site
- Web pages and files you view or download while you visit our Site
We use this information to measure the number of visitors to different sections of our Site, find out what information is viewed most, and to help us make our Site more useful.
If you send us an email: We will not obtain information that identifies you specifically when you visit our Site, unless you choose to provide such information to us via email.
If you visit our Site and login to the private / resource section to read or download materials, we collect and store only the following information about you (“User”) that you voluntarily provide it to us. For example, you may provide:
- Your name, organization, email address, username and password when you sign up with a Next Engineers User account
- Your contact information and any other information you choose to include in emails or other electronic messages to us or if you contact us through the website
- Personal information contained in articles, photos, videos, feedback, comments or other content you post on our website, participate in video conferences, or submit via online portals, forms or surveys
You can choose not to provide personal information when asked for it, but it may restrict our ability to provide you with some services you have requested.
We will not sell or otherwise make available to any third-party names, emails addresses or other personal information of Site Users. We use a double opt-in system that sends a confirmation email to new Users to make sure that they want a Next Engineers account. Users may choose to delete their account by emailing NextEnginers@fhi360.org
FHI 360 stores all User account information on a secure server hosted by a third party, Azure, which does not access the contents of FHI 360's email address list. FHI 360 will not sell or otherwise make available names, email addresses, postal addresses, or other information from its User accounts to any third party.
How Long We Keep Your Personal Information
FHI 360 keeps your personal information for as long as we need it to carry out the purpose for which it was collected, or as required by applicable laws and regulations.
In general, the Site does NOT use the "cookies" that some websites use to gather and store information about your visits. Cookies are essentially tokens of information, such as preferences and passwords, which some web servers collect when you access them. That data is stored on your hard drive – not on the website's server. When you visit a "cookie" site, the server looks for its cookie on your hard drive and reads the information it stored there. Read your web browser's help files to learn more about cookies.
Though FHI 360 makes every effort to preserve user privacy, there may be times when FHI 360 needs to disclose personal information when required by law. Examples of such requirements include responding to a court order or in response to requests from law enforcement authorities.
