Privacy Policy & Terms of Use

Welcome to, the official Website of STEM to Market: The AWIS Accelerator. We are committed to protecting your privacy and want to make sure that you understand that your application and, if accepted, subsequent work and membership information will be handled with the utmost care.

Personal Information
You do not have to identify yourself or provide personal information unless you choose. You decide the amount of personal information you provide to us. Any and all information collected on this site will be kept confidential and will not be sold, rented, loaned, or otherwise disclosed without your permission.

While we do not monitor your personal activity on our site, we do track aggregated, anonymous user data to evaluate the effectiveness of our website and help us improve our service. For example, we may compile statistics about our daily number of site visitors or specific page requests. This data is generic in nature and contains no personal information.

Our website contains numerous links to sites developed by other companies and organizations. Be aware that other sites’ privacy policies may differ from ours and we have no influence over third-party privacy policies.

The same pledge to respect your privacy applies to any individual who either joins or contributes online via this website.

Opt-out for European Union and Other Users
In accordance with EU and other guidelines, you may decline to provide the information requested by the AWIS. Please be advised, however, that the AWIS may be unable to provide certain services unless such information is provided for security and identification purposes.

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive that sometimes links to personally identifiable information about the user. AWIS uses session cookies which are designed not to be permanent or persistent. The session cookie is designed so that, once you close your browser, the cookie will simply terminate. If you configure your browser to reject cookies, you may still use some, but not all, portions of our site. For example, accessing our online journals requires that your browser accept cookies. We recommend closing browsers on publicly available machines (such as those in libraries) after use.
