The UN Women TC Privacy Policy

The UN Women Training Centre Privacy Policy (“Policy”) was created to help you understand how UN Women uses information that is automatically collected from your computer and information you submit through the eLearning Campus (“Campus”). UN Women is committed to protecting your online privacy. By using this Campus, you agree to be legally bound by this Policy as it may be amended from time to time. If you do not agree to this Policy or cannot form a legally binding contract, you are not permitted to use this Campus.

Generally, if we collect information from you, we use it only for the purposes for which it was collected and the other limited purposes set forth below.

I. Information Collected

Your identity will not be disclosed by these aggregated user statistics.

c) We may work with certain third parties to perform functions on our behalf, such as sending postal mail and email, removing repetitive information from donor lists, analyzing data, processing credit card payments and providing customer service. These third parties may have access to your personal information as needed to perform their functions, but they may not use it for any other purpose. However, UN Women and the United Nations assume no responsibility for the use practices of third parties.
