PRIVACY POLICY

Your privacy on the Internet is of utmost importance to us. This privacy statement describes our policy concerning the gathering and sharing of visitors’ information through the Nurturing Care web site. It applies to all pages within the “nurturing-care.org” domain name.

 

What information do we collect?

Normal web site usage
In general, you can browse the Nurturing Care web site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. The only information we gather during general browsing is from standard server logs. These include your IP (Internet Protocol) address, domain name, browser type, operating system, and information such as the web site that referred you to us, the files you download, the pages you visit, and the dates/times of those visits.

Collection of personally identifiable information
If you register for a newsletter, log on to certain pages, request information, provide feedback, apply for a job, join a discussion group or join an electronic mailing list, you will be asked to provide personal information such as your name, postal address and e-mail address.

This information is collected only with your knowledge and permission, and is kept in various databases and mailing lists. If you are purchasing something using the web, you may be asked to provide your credit card details. These details are transferred to a secure, online payment service, hosted outside the Nurturing Care web site.

On certain pages, registering or supplying personal information sets a cookie*. By setting this cookie, we will remember your details the next time you visit, so you don’t have to re-enter the information. This helps us to provide you with a better service.

Joining electronic discussion groups may mean that other participants of the discussion group will see personal information that you have volunteered. For open discussion groups, this information will be public.
