Your privacy is important to IHIP. So we’ve developed a Privacy Policy that covers how we collect, use, disclose, transfer, and store your information. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our privacy practices and contact us at if you have any questions.

Legal Framework

IHIP is a swiss association and is by default regulated by Swiss legislation.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

Personal information is data that can be used to uniquely identify or contact a single person.

You may be asked to provide your personal information anytime you are in contact with IHIP. IHIP and its member may share this personal information with each other and use it consistent with this Privacy Policy. They may also combine it with other information to provide and improve our products, services, content, and advertising.

We will never rent or sell your personal information.

What personal information we collect

  • When you download a document, register for an event, or participate in an online survey, we may collect a variety of information, including your name, mailing address, phone number and email address.

How we use your personal information

  • The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on IHIP latest announcements and upcoming events. It also helps us to improve our services, content, and outreach strategy. If you don’t want to be on our mailing list, you can opt out anytime by unsubscribing from the newsletter or sending an email to
  • We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve IHIP’s content, services, and customer communications.

Collection and Use of Project Information

Project information is data that can be used to uniquely identify  a single project.

You will be asked to provide your project information if you decide to register your project through the IHIP platform. IHIP and its member may share this project information with each other and use it consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Project information will stay private and will not be shared outside IHIP membership. We will never rent or sell your project information.

The project information once made anonymous, meaning we delete all information which could identify your project, can be consolidated by IHIP with other project information to obtain trends and statistics. IHIP reserves its right to make those trends and statistic public.
