(b) Project Information. In addition to Personal Information, you can choose to provide certain other information to us in connection with registering to become a Registered User of the Hub or your use of the Services as a Registered User, including information that will be publicly displayed on your project profile page ("Project Information"). Project Information that shall be displayed publicly may include project name, vision, objectives, beneficiaries, stakeholders consulted, current progress, associated website, location, start and end dates, action areas, existing project partners, preferred partner organizations, type of support needed, and associated photos and videos.
(c) Automatic Information. When you visit a website, you automatically disclose certain information, such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address and the time of your visit. Like many other websites, the Hub may make use of log files. The information inside the log files includes the IP address from which you access the Hub, the type of browser and operating system you use to access the Hub, the date and time you access the Hub, the pages you visit, and the addresses of the pages from which you followed a link to reach the Hub. We may use such information to analyze trends, administer the Hub, track user movements around the Hub and gather certain demographic information. Such information is not linked to any Personal Information, with the exception of the IP address, which might be used to identify spamming attempts.
(d) "Cookies". Cookies are small information files which are transferred to your computer, mobile device or other device you use when you visit a website and which will recognize your device on future visits. These types of files can perform various tasks, such as remembering your preferences. The Hub may utilize cookies and other tracking technologies that may collect information about your activities on the Hub. Most browsers are set up to accept cookies, but you can change your settings to have your browser notify you when you receive a new cookie or to refuse to accept cookies. Please note, however, that blocking or deleting cookies may affect your ability to use some features of the Hub.
If you submit Personal Information to us through the Hub or in connection with your use of the Services:
The privacy and protection of your Personal Information is important to us.
We use security software to protect the confidentiality of your Personal Information. In addition, our business practices are reviewed periodically for compliance with policies and procedures governing the security and confidentiality of our information.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have about security in connection with the Hub or the Services using the contact information provided below.
Your access to some services and content may be password protected. We advise that you do not disclose your password to anyone. In addition, we recommend you sign out of password-protected services at the end of your session.
Any information, video, image, data, text, documents or other content posted at your direction onto a public area of the Hub becomes publicly published content and will be available to all users of that public area of the Hub, even if such content contains Personal Information. Please note that if you publish your contact information, you may receive unsolicited messages from users and visitors to the Hub. We encourage you to publish only information you are certain you want to be accessible to the public-at-large.
To the extent that you do provide us with Personal Information, the UN GLOBAL COMPACT wishes to maintain accurate and complete Personal Information. If you are a Registered User, you may log-in to your personal profile at any time and add information, delete information or correct any incorrect information we have. If you are not a Registered User and would like to correct a material inaccuracy in your Personal Information that we may be storing, you may submit an access request using the contact information provided below. We will provide initial responses to access requests within a reasonable period of time.
The UN GLOBAL COMPACT may use your email address to send you promotional information, such as information about special offers and events. You may choose to opt out of receiving promotional communications of this kind from us by contacting us using the contact information provided below or as otherwise provided by us. It may take up to 10 days to process your email request and 6-8 weeks to process your postal mail request, during which period you may continue to receive communications from the UN GLOBAL COMPACT.
We are currently in the process of implementing a method by which Registered Users may delete their accounts. When you delete your account, it is permanently deleted from the Hub and cannot be restored, though some information may remain in backup copies and logs for up to 90 days.
