Privacy Policy

NGO Monitor is very concerned about protecting your online privacy. This is our policy about the privacy of information we collect on the NGO Monitor website.

We collect two types of information about people who visit our site: anonymous, and personal.

Anonymous data is collected automatically about site visitors, indicating their browser type, operating system, Internet service provider, or the site they clicked from. We use this data to determine the total number of site visits and the average time visitors spend at the site. We do not use cookies or similar tracking technologies to collect information about site visitors. This kind of anonymous data is collected in the aggregate and does not tell us any information about a visitor as an individual. We will not sell or voluntarily transfer this information to third parties.

We may also collect personal information about site visitors who give us such information voluntarily:

  • If you join the NGO Monitor mailing list, you will automatically receive periodic newsletters from us via email. We will not exchange or rent your email address to other organizations.
  • We do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under 13 years old. If you are under 13 years old, please do not provide us with any such information.

Proceedings. It is possible that a government or other entity will try to compel us to disclose data. We will challenge any subpoena or other legal process seeking access to anonymous or personal data of users of our web site and mailing lists.

Revisions to Policy. This privacy policy is valid as of the date at the top of the policy. Please note that, by using the site, you signify your agreement to this privacy policy. If you do not agree to this privacy policy, please do not use sections of our site requesting information from you. We reserve the right to revise this privacy policy from time to time. Your continued use of the site subsequent to changes to this privacy policy will mean that you accept such changes.

Leaving Site. Please note that third parties may collect information about you, through cookies or other technologies, when you link to their websites through our site. We do not monitor or control the information collection or privacy practices of these or any other third parties, and are not responsible for their practices or the content of their websites. You should review the privacy policies of such third parties to understand how they collect and use information.

Security. We use reasonable security methods to protect the data that resides on our servers. But because no security system is impenetrable, we cannot guarantee the security of our servers. It is also possible that information you supply us will be intercepted during transmission.
