Website

The HIV Nursing website does not automatically capture or store personal information, other than logging the user's IP address and session info such as the duration of the visit and the type of browser used. This is recognised by the website server and is only used for system administration and to provide statistics, which we use to evaluate use of the website.

Cookies

Cookies are messages given to a web browser by a web server. The message is then stored by the browser in a text file called cookie.txt. Each time the browser requests a page from the server, this message is sent back. A cookie's main objective is to identify users and personalise their visit by customising web pages for them for example by welcoming them by name next time they visit the same site. A site using cookies will usually invite you to provide personal information such as your name, e-mail address and interests.

We do not use cookies for collecting user information from the site.

You may be asked for personal information if you want to register on the website or submit work for publication in the journal. We will only use the personal information you provide to deliver the services you have told us you wish to take part in. Any personal information collected by us will not be shared with any third parties.

External sites

The HIV Nursing website contains links to websites operated by third parties under different privacy policies. Should you choose one of those links, you will be leaving the HIV Nursing website and this privacy notice will no longer apply. This privacy policy only covers the information contained on the HIV Nursing website at http://www.hivnursing.net/index.php.

If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact us either by email at info@hivnursing.net or from the contact us page.

Social media

If you share our content through social media, for example by tweeting about us on Twitter, those social networks will record that you have done so. They may set a cookie for this purpose.

In some cases, where a page on our website includes content from a social network, such as a Twitter feed, or Facebook comments box, those services may set a cookie even where you do not click a button. As is the case for all cookies, we cannot access those set by social networks. Social networks cannot access cookies we set ourselves.

 

Disclosure

In cases of subscription purchases we may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.

Unfortunately, we can’t offer you a refund on digital purchases.
