This website may contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. Most areas for comments have been turned off by the website administrator.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies. These cookies are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
Your session and the pages you visit on http://www.humanitariandisarmament.org may be tracked, but you will remain anonymous.

We connect data from different systems but do not link IP addresses to any personal information. We may also collect other information as described in this policy.
Purpose of Data Collection
Our purpose for collecting this Personal Data is to operate our website, to facilitate our online interactions with you, and to distribute our newsletter.
We process your Personal Data to facilitate transactions requested by you and meet our contractual obligations (for example, registering you for events); on the basis of our legitimate interests (for example, website analytics); or on the basis of your consent (for example, signing up for the newsletter), where applicable.
If you send us an email, the email address you provide may be used to send you information and respond to inquiries or other requests. We will not share, sell, rent, swap, or authorize any third party to use your email address for commercial purposes.
With whom we share your data
In addition to the third-party services noted above, we may provide your information to third parties in circumstances where we believe that doing so is necessary or appropriate to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request; detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues; or protect our rights and safety and the rights and safety of our users or others.
How long we retain your data
We will retain your Personal Data for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in these Disclosures unless a longer period is required under applicable law, or is needed to resolve disputes or protect our legal rights or otherwise to comply with legal obligations.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
Where we are processing Personal Data based on our legitimate interests, we generally will retain the data for a reasonable period of time based on the particular interest, taking into account the fundamental interests and the rights and freedoms of the data subjects.
Where we are processing Personal Data based on your consent, we generally will retain the information for the period of time necessary to carry out the processing activities to which you consented, subject to your right, under certain circumstances, to have certain of your Personal Data erased.
What rights you have over your data
If you have left comments or provided your email address and name for the purposes of our newsletter, you can request the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
