1. Information You Knowingly and Voluntarily Provide
AIS collects the personal information you knowingly and voluntarily provide when you use this Site, for example, the information you provide when you request an appointment, request details or services, or e-mail us with questions or feedback. The personal information may also be collected via some applications line online admission forms or fee payment forms. We expect to release several new applications in the future where you will be asked to provide your information.
AIS uses the personal information you volunteer through this Site to provide the information and services you request and for any other purpose we identify to you in a specific Privacy Notice.
When we collect your contact information, we may ask you if you would like to receive news and special offers from us.

In addition, if we provide promotional information or materials to you by email, we will include a link to our “opt-out” page in every email.
2. Information Sent to Us by Your Web Browser
AIS collects information that is sent to us automatically by your web browser. This information typically includes the IP address of your Internet service provider, the name of your operating system (such as Windows® or Macintosh®or Linux), the name and version of your browser (such as Google Chrome®or Firebox®or Netscape® or Internet Explorer®, Safari ®), the date and time of your visit, and the pages you visit. The information we receive depends on the settings on your web browser. Please check your browser if you want to learn what information your browser sends or how to change your settings.
The information provided by your browser does not identify you personally, and we do not normally link this information to any other information that would permit us to identify you. Generally, we use this information to create statistics that help us improve our sites and make them more compatible with the technology used by our visitors. However, we may review our server logs for security purposes, for example, to detect intrusions into our network. The possibility therefore exists that, in the event of criminal malfeasance, we might share our server logs, which contain visitors IP addresses, with the appropriate investigative authorities who could use that information to trace and identify individuals.
3. Information Collected By Placing a “Cookie” On Your Computer
AIS may use “cookies” to “tag” your computer when you visit our Site. A cookie is a small text file our Web server offers your browser. Our cookies contain a randomly generated, unique identification number that lets us identify your computer each time your visit our Site.
We may use these cookies to collect statistical information about the ways visitors use our site – which pages they visit, which links they use, and how long they stay on each page. We may analyse this information (known as “clickstream data”) in statistical form to better understand our visitors’ interests and needs and to improve the content and functionality of our sites.
Our web server will recognize the cookies on your hard drive each time you visit our Site. Because we recognize your computer, we do not count it twice. Also, we can use the number assigned to your computer to link the clickstream data we collect each time you visit our Site. This technology will help us determine how many visitors are using our site, how often they return, and how their use of our site may vary over time.
Does AIS Share My Personal Data?
AIS may share personal information collected through this Site with companies and organizations that perform services on our behalf, for example, companies that provide support services to us (such as bank for collecting fees, data storage and web hosting services) or that help us market our products and services (such as third-party e-mail marketing companies). These third parties are required by contract to use the personal information we share with them only to perform services on our behalf and to treat your personal information as strictly confidential.
There are other, limited circumstances in which AIS may share or transfer the personal information in our databases to unrelated third parties. For example, we may provide personal information to a third party to comply with a court order or subpoena; to prevent or investigate a possible crime, such as fraud or identity theft; to comply with a legal requirement; to protect the rights, property or safety of AIS, our users or others; to protect your vital interests; or in connection with a corporate sale, purchase, merger, reorganization, liquidation, dissolution or similar event.
