The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) operates the www.unepstrata.org website (the “Service”).
This page informs of UNEP’s policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data when using the Service and the choices associated with that data.
Information collection and use
UNEP collects several different types of information for various purposes to provide and improve our Service.
Types of data collected
1. Personal data
While using our Service, UNEP may ask you to provide certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify visitors (“personal data”). Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to:
First name and last name
Cookies and usage data
2. Usage data
UNEP may also collect information on how the Service is accessed and used (“usage data”). This usage data may include information such as visitors’ computer’s Internet Protocol address (IP address), browser type, browser version, visited pages of the Service, the time and date of the visit, the time spent on those pages, unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data.
Tracking cookies data
Cookies are files with a small amount of data that may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to visitors’ browsers from a website and stored on your device. Tracking technologies also used are beacons, tags, and scripts to collect and track information and to improve and analyze our Service.
You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Service.
Examples of cookies used:
Session cookies are used to operate our Service.
Preference cookies are used to remember preferences and settings.
Security cookies are used for security purposes.
Use of data
UNEP uses the collected data for various purposes:
- To provide and maintain the Service
- To notify you about changes to our Service
- To allow you to participate in interactive features of our Service when you choose to do so
- To provide analysis or valuable information so that we can improve the Service
- To monitor the usage of the Service
- To detect, prevent and address technical issues
Agreement to the storage of personal Information
Changing or removing information
Personal information stored by UNEP is essentially administrative. On request, an individual’s information can be changed or removed by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Disclosure of data
UNEP may disclose your personal data in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:
- To comply with a legal obligation
- To protect and defend the rights or property of UNEP
- To prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with the Service
- To protect the personal safety of users of the Service or the public
- To protect against legal liability
Security of data
Data security is important to UNEP, but no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While UNEP strives to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
UNEP may employ third-party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service (“service providers”), to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Service-related services, or to assist us in analysing how our Service is used.
These third parties will have access to personal data only to perform these tasks on UNEP’s behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
UNEP may use third-party service providers like Google Analytics to monitor and analyse the use of the Service.
Links to other websites
UNEP has no control over and assumes no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party sites or services.
The Service does not address anyone under the age of 13 (“Children”).
UNEP does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13. Parents or guardians who are aware that children have provided UNEP with personal data should contact us at email@example.com. In the case that the Service has collected personal data from children without verification of parental consent, UNEP will take the necessary steps to remove that information from the servers.
