Who we are

Our website address is: https://imher.net. See more about IMHER here.

IMHER has been created and maintained largely as a university-based research learning experience for Dartmouth College students.  The IMHER research project and its associated website is effectively a volunteer effort in terms of staffing, with no sales revenue and with no donations to the project solicited or accepted. 

With a strong commitment to open data and information accessibility in the development space, IMHER will never charge for access to the information that it has collected and/or curated on its website.  Citation and links to IMHER as the information source is sufficient.

What personal data we collect & why


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


There is a crowd-sourcing element to some of the information on IMHER, and much of that information is gathered through the use of Airtable forms. Some of those forms involving collecting information about individual organizations, educational resources, research studies, etc., with the goal of placing that information on IMHER.net later. As such, information submitted through forms may be made publicly available, at IMHER’s discretion.

With reference to contact information, we will always redirect users to an organization’s homepage, contact page, and/or social media site; we will never post the email addresses, phone numbers, or other contact information of individuals on IMHER.net. Whenever we collect contact information, it is intended for the use of IMHER only, usually for follow-up to queries and comments.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, forms, databases, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

The above applies to any website to which we link or embed information. On IMHER, many of our databases and forms are driven by Airtable; Airtable’s privacy policy can be viewed here.


Who we share your data with

IMHER.net highly values the privacy of data which may be obtained through the viewing of our website. Cookie and tracking-related data is only used to assess website traffic and usage on an overall, rather than individual-level, basis.

Information submitted through forms, interviews, emails, or phone or text-based communications with IMHER may be made publicly available, at IMHER’s discretion. With reference to contact information, we typically redirect users to an organization’s homepage, contact page, and/or social media site. Whenever we collect unlisted contact information, it is intended for the use of IMHER only, usually for follow-up to queries and comments.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

Nearly all of the data that IMHER collects and/or shares is focused on organizations, rather than on individuals. You can, however, request that we erase any personal data IMHER may hold about you as an individual. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
