This policy covers the use of personal information collected by PreventionWeb when you use by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR).

From time to time, you will be asked to submit information about yourself (name, organization and email address) in order to receive or use services on our website. Such services include newsletters, online communities and closed subscriber-group workspaces, and membership.

By entering your details in the fields requested, you enable PreventionWeb and its partners to provide you with the services you select. Whenever you provide such personal information, we will treat that information in accordance with this policy and aim to meet current Internet best practices regarding your privacy and security.

In the following statement, we detail all of the ways that we collect data on our users, and how we use that data.

Privacy & Cookies
PreventionWeb takes your online privacy very seriously. Therefore, unless you or we explicitly state otherwise, any data that we collect as a result of your use of the site remains confidential.

Why then do we 'cookie', or collect data, on our users? Like many web sites, we collect non-personally identifiable information about our users via cookies primarily for three purposes:

1. to personalize our service for individuals or groups of users
2. to identify and validate user identification
3. to analyze our traffic patterns.

Log Files
In almost all cases, when you go to a web site, web servers log your interaction with the site in something called a 'log file'. Standard log files like ours contain basic information such as what time which pages were viewed, the IP address of the visitor, and the username (upon logincoming soon). We use this information to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

We reserve the right to share log file information with our partner organizations, with the aim of improving the delivery of personalized service, in the aggregate: We do not give information about single users, but may group individuals into categories such as user type groups (practioner, National Platform focal point, researcher, jounalist), regional groups (North America, South Asia, Caribbean, North Africa), organizational type (non-governmental, academic institute, private sector), always according to information provided by the users themselves.
