Your privacy is critically important to us. At The International Churchill Society (ICS) we have a few guiding principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We never ask you for things like your gender or income level.)
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
- We aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.
If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The International Churchill Society. (“ICS”) operates winstonchurchill.org, churchillallies.org and discoverchurchill.org. It is the International Churchill Society’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
Like most website operators, ICS collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. ICS’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how ICS visitors use its websites. From time to time, ICS may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its websites.
ICS also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. ICS only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to the ICS websites choose to interact with ICS in ways that require ICS to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that ICS gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with ICS are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, ICS collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with ICS. ICS does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
ICS may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its website. For instance, ICS may monitor the most popular posts on winstonchurchill.org and may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, ICS does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
ICS discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on ICS’ behalf or to provide services available at ICS’ websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. ICS’ will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, ICS discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when ICS believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of ICS, third parties or the public at large. ICS takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If ICS, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that ICS goes out of business, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of ICS may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
