Members or partner organisations of I.Family are committed to user privacy.
Policy on “protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data by the Community institutions” is based on Regulation (EC) N° 45/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18th December 2000.
You can browse freely through most of the I.Family website and those of most I.Family member organisations, where available, without giving any information about yourself or your organisation. However, in some cases, personal or organizational information may be required in order to enable us to provide the e-services you request. In such cases, this personal information is treated according to the policy described in the above-mentioned Regulation.
Please note that we collect no personal information about you when you visit our web site unless you choose to provide that information to us.
Some web pages contain links to other sites whose information practices may be different to those of members or partner organisations of I.Family. Neither members or partner organisations of I.Family are necessarily responsible for the privacy practices within any of these other sites. You should be aware of this when you leave the I.Family and/ or partner organisations’ websites, and we encourage you to read the privacy statements on other web sites you visit, as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.
Any personal information you provide to members or partner organisations of I.Family will be held securely, and your personal details will not normally be disclosed to third parties. In some circumstances, however, we may need to disclose your personal details to a third party so that they can provide a service/and or information you have requested, or fulfill a request for information. Any information about you that we pass to a third party will be held securely by that party, and used only to provide the services or information you have requested.
Members or partner organisations of I.Family will not divulge your personal data to third parties for direct marketing purposes. We will disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example in response to a court order. We also may disclose information in response to a legitimate request from an official law enforcement agency (e.g. the police, or an investigating magistrate).
We have put in place, and we regularly review and update, appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorised access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect on-line. Agents and contractors of I.Family who have access to personally identifiable information held by members or partner organisations of I.Family are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Notice.
Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorised disclosures of information, we cannot guarantee that personally identifiable information will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Notice. Inadvertent disclosure may result, for example, when third parties misrepresent their identities in asking the site for access to personally identifiable information about themselves for purposes of correcting possible factual errors in the data.
