What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information
Ubuntu Global Initiatives collects non-personally identifiable information via your IP address, most-recently visited URL, or your computer settings. Our donations forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, e-mail address, format preference (HTML vs. text), address, interests, and similar information. We do not request or store sensitive information from our visitors such as credit card or social security numbers.
Ubuntu Global Initiatives respects your privacy and has instituted policies intended to ensure that your personal information is handled in a safe and responsible manner. We may use this information to deliver to you information about our organization, as well as for trend analysis, pattern detection, site administration, or simply to contact you when necessary. Non-personal demographic and profile data is used to customize your experience at our website, showing you content we think you might be interested in. By visiting this website you agree that no information you submit to the site shall contain libelous or otherwise unlawful, abusive or obscene material. You are solely responsible for the content of any information you provide to Ubuntu Global Initiatives.
Internet Protocol Address
We collect an IP address from all visitors to our site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our site, analyze trends, track users’ movement, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use for us to improve the site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Use of “Cookies”
All information provided to Ubuntu Global Initiatives is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our site that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of Ubuntu Global Initiatives. You will notice that the domain name (located in your website address bar) begins with “https” on these secure pages. Information on these pages is encrypted for your security. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.
