Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. Because we gather certain types of information about the users of the Climate Investment Funds (CIF) sites and services, we want to ensure that you fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.
Collecting Information About You
You can visit most of our web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. We may track the Internet domain address from which people visit us and analyze this data for trends and statistics, but individual users will remain anonymous, unless you voluntarily tell us who you are.
There may be times (such as when you sign up for newsletter, post a blog, fill out a contact form, etc.), at which we ask you to provide certain information about yourself, such as your name, organization, address, telephone number, Email address, etc. Whether or not to provide such information is completely your own choice. If you choose not to register or provide personal information, you can still use the CIF web site. However, you will not be able to receive email newsletters.
Using Information About You
We use the personally identifiable information you provide for internal purposes, such as confirming and managing your subscription or registration, analyzing trends and statistics, and providing you with information about the CIF. The information you are asked to provide is used for technical and customer administration of the site only and is not shared with third parties.
Non-personally identifiable information
We use a third party program to track and analyze information about the usage on our site. None of this information can be used to identify individual site visitors. Only summaries of visitors’ behavior are produced. Examples of this type of information include statistics on most popular and least popular pages. The information collected cannot be traced back to a particular individual.
The purpose of this data collection is so that the CIF can better understand the preferences of its visitors and improve its site and services. This information is never connected with any personal information you supply to us if you register on our website.
Our website uses "cookies" only to carry session information between certain web pages. Our cookies do not contain personally identifiable information. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive.
