Security & Privacy Policy

The Social Science Research Council is committed to protecting the privacy of individuals using SSRC application systems. Please take a moment to review the following in connection with our commitment to your privacy.

As a matter of policy, the SSRC does not automatically track or store any personal information about visitors to the Online Application Portal, https://soap.ssrc.org. You may view or download the general information on this site without providing any personal information. The SSRC does maintain standard logs that provide information on the number of users, the domain names and IP addresses of users, the Website files accessed, and other items. This information is aggregated. Therefore, it does not identify individual users and is used solely for administrative purposes. The aggregate data collected may also be used for statistical research, including analyses of trends, and for reporting to SSRC funders. The SSRC makes every effort to protect the security and encryption of personal information. Data transmitted through the SSRC Online Application Portal is encrypted through a secure socket layer protocol, though done at a level which avoids impeding electronic access for those with slow connectivity to the internet.
