In some areas of the Website, such as when you submit request information, or register for an event, this web site may request that you provide personal information, including, as applicable, your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, and any other information from which your unique identity is discernible. In other areas of the Website, this web site collects or may collect demographic information that is not unique to you such as your country of residence, age, level of education, gender, and other similar types of information. Sometimes this web site collects or may collect a combination of these two types of information.

This web site also gathers or may gather certain information about your use of the Website, such as what areas you visit and what services you access. In addition, there is information about your computer hardware and software that is or may be collected. This information can include without limitation your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses.

These companies and individuals will have access to your personal information as necessary to perform their functions.
  • KAUST may disclose such information if legally required to do so, if requested to do so by a governmental entity or if it believes in good faith that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process; (b) protect the rights or property of KAUST; (c) prevent a crime or protect national security; or (d) protect the personal safety of users or the community.

In the event that KAUST contracts with a third party to provide some part of the information or service that you have requested, KAUST may provide your information to such third party, or such third party may collect information from you on KAUST’s behalf. KAUST will only use reliable service providers who undertake to put in place appropriate security measures to ensure a reasonable level of protection. Such third parties will have access to personal information solely for the purposes of performing the services for which they have been engaged.
