Internet Privacy Policy

The Quaker United Nations Office values your support and is committed to protecting your online privacy. You can visit our website without revealing any personal information.

Information we collect

Our web servers do automatically collect some non-identifying basic information from your visit to help measure web site activity and improve our site. This information includes standard information exposed any time you visit a web site including your IP address, browser type, computer type, the pages requested, and referring web site.

Like many other websites, QUNO's website uses  cookies to help us distinguish repeat visitors from first-time visitors and give us helpful information about how our pages are viewed, and to aid some of our advanced tools. We do not use cookies to collect personal, identifiable information without your knowledge.

In addition, QUNO uses third party services throughout the site, such as Google Analytics, to place first party and/or third party cookies on devices that access the site.  These cookies enable QUNO to track how our site is used, which portions of the site is visited and which items our visitors find most interesting.  To opt out of use of our cookies for tracking, you may visit Google’s advertising policy page.

On occasion, we may conduct online surveys to learn more about our audience and their preferences. Information requested on such surveys is not personally identifying and will be used only in aggregate for research purposes (except in cases where you request follow up information or specifically consent to another use).

We want to be clear. We will not obtain personally identifying information about you when you visit our site unless you choose to provide such information.

Use of cookies

Cookies are small text-only files that are stored on your computer and that can be used to help identify you when you visit any websites.  A cookie cannot read data off of your computer hard disk, nor can it read cookie files created by other websites. We may use cookies to make visiting and using our site easier, for instance, so that you do not have to continually re-enter information, and so that we can tailor our site to your expressed preferences.

Most web browsers accept cookies. However, if you wish, you can usually set your browser to refuse cookies, or to notify you when you receive a new cookie. Note that if cookies are disabled, you may not be able to enjoy all the interactive features of websites. For more information about cookies, including instructions on how to stop cookies being installed on your browser, please see www.allaboutcookies.org.

Volunteering personal data

You may voluntarily submit your email address or other personally identifying data to take part in an activity on the site, such as to sign up for a mailing list or participating in advocacy. In this case, we will use your information to send you the requested mailings or as part of the advocacy work you are supporting. We may also send you occasional messages about other QUNO programs and information sources. You can unsubscribe from a QUNO mailing list at any time by responding to the instructions provided at the bottom of each message. We do not share our email lists with other organizations.
