We use “cookies” to allow you to customize certain aspects of the site and to measure overall traffic patterns on our site.

A cookie is a small piece of information that our web servers send to your browser that is then stored on your computer. That small piece of information allows our computers to recognize revisiting users and also allows our computers to remember things about your past interaction with the site, such as User preferences. They help us monitor website traffic, personalize the content of the site for you, and facilitate your ongoing access to and use of the site. They do not collect any data from your computer.

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 analyse our traffic patterns.

Our system will issue cookies to your computer when you log on to the site.

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 User, and the Username (upon login). 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 National Societies and other 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 (National Society practitioner, Secretariat practitioners, National Society focal point, National Society staffs, volunteers), always according to information provided by the Users themselves.

Newsletters & Listservs

If a User wishes to subscribe to any of the Platform hosted mailing lists/listservs or email alerts, we may ask for some basic demographic information. We use this information to improve the delivery of customized services, and we may share that information, only in the aggregate, with our partners and potential partners.
