Should you choose to provide us with any personal information, you can be assured that it will only be used by the Entities to conduct official business, and personal information will never be disseminated to any unaffiliated third party.

Information Gathering
Some data collected on this site is the kind generally referred to as personally identifiable information. For example, your full name, home address, email address, date of birth, credit card number or telephone number.

The Entities do not collect personally identifiable information through this website except when such individuals specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis. For example, such personally identifiable information may be gathered from an e-mail request for information or service from an agency or ministry of the Entities.

By voluntarily providing us with personally identifiable information, you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this privacy policy. If you provide personally identifiable information to this website, you acknowledge and agree that such information may be transferred from your current location to the offices and servers of the Entities and the authorized third parties referred to herein.

Other data we collect through this site is non-personally identifiable information and it cannot be used to identify you. Examples of this kind of information include your IP address, what pages on the site you view, your browser type, and so on. We use IP addresses (the internet address of your computer) to help diagnose problems with our servers and to administer our website. For instance, we run statistical software to identify which parts of our website are most heavily used and which portion of our audience comes from within our own network. But, we do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable.

Use of Information
If you provide personally identifiable information for a certain reason we may use that information for the reason it was provided. If you ask to receive communications from us, each communication you receive will contain instructions allowing you to opt out of receiving future communications. The Entities and any affiliates and subsidiaries may also use your personality identifiable information and other information you provide to help us improve the content and functionality of this website to better understand our users and to help improve the services and programs that the Entities provide.

We may share users’ personally identifiable information with the Entities’ affiliated and/or subsidiary organizations for purposes consistent with this privacy policy and the mission of the Entities. Like many organizations we also sometimes hire companies to perform certain business-related functions such as performing mailings, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we contract with another company to perform functions of this nature we only provide them with the information that they need to perform that specific function and we require them to keep that information confidential.

You may request details of personal information complied about you, correct such information, or ask the Entities to delete your personal information from the database of users of the site by contacting the Entities at
