The United Nations Non-Governmental Liaison Service (UN-NGLS) is an inter-agency programme of the United Nations mandated to promote and develop constructive relations between the United Nations and civil society organizations.
What information is collected and how will it be used:
UN-NGLS’ registration forms require users to provide UN-NGLS with contact information that may include name, email address, format preference (HTML vs. Text), address, interests, areas of work and other information. UN-NGLS also collects information through sign-up sheets distributed during meetings, conferences and events where UN-NGLS is involved as organizer, co-organizer or partner. To protect users, UN-NGLS will never request sensitive information from users including credit card or social security numbers.
Internet Protocol Address:
The UN-NGLS website automatically collects an IP address from all visitors to our site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to a computer when the Internet is used. This collection of IP addresses can help UN-NGLS to improve its website as it allows UN-NGLS to diagnose problems with its server, administer its website, analyze trends, track users’ movement and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
Use of "Cookies":
UN-NGLS also protects users information by placing it in a secure section of its website, only accessible to certain qualified employees of UN-NGLS. However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While UN-NGLS strives to protect users’ information, it cannot fully ensure or warrant the security of such information.
Other Web Sites:
The UN-NGLS website contains links to other websites. Please note that when you, as a user, click on one of these links, you are entering another website for which UN-NGLS has no responsibility. Therefore, UN-NGLS encourages users to read the privacy statements on all such sites as their policies may differ.
UN-NGLS does not share any personal information with governments, United Nations departments, funds, programmes, specialized agencies and entities or third-party entities without explicit prior consent.
UN-NGLS might share aggregate information of the content of its databases that might include geographic characteristics, thematic areas or class of organization. UN-NGLS will not disclose aggregate information that might allow the identification of personal data by inference.
Please contact UN-NGLS at the address below for any additional questions about the management or use of personal data.
NGLS communicates with users who subscribe to its services on a regular basis via mail and e-mail. For example, NGLS may use an email address to confirm a request.
NGLS provides users the opportunity to exercise an opt-out choice if they no longer want to receive emails or updates from NGLS or if they do not want NGLS to share personally identifiable information with third parties. NGLS will process their unsubscribtion as soon as possible, but in some circumstances users may receive a few more messages until the unsubscribtion is processed. Users also may opt-out of receiving such emails by clicking on the "unsubscribe" link within the text of the email.
