ICCROM is committed to the privacy of individuals who visit and interact with www.iccrom.org (the “User/s”), and follows the privacy policy outlined below. This privacy policy applies to all ICCROM websites - that is, all sites within the "iccrom.org" domain name (the “Site”).

Personally Identifiable Information

Visitors are not asked to provide any personally identifiable information to access the Site. Users are asked to share their email address to subscribe to email alerts or newsletters such as ICCROM’s monthly e-News. In this event, ICCROM will store this information securely and will not share it with anyone other than ICCROM’s partner organizations. In no case will personal information be rented or sold, nor will any sensitive financial information be shared. See below for the use of information related to online donations.

Non-personally identifiable information

By accessing the Site, certain information such as Internet protocol (IP) addresses, navigation through the Site, the browser used and the time spent, along with other similar information, will be stored on our servers and on a third party analytics software. This information is treated confidentially.

The purpose of this data collection is to understand better the preferences of the Site’s visitors and improve their experience on our pages. This information is never connected with any personal information that visitors supply to us if they register on our Site.

Use of cookies

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the User's hard drive containing information about the User. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on the Site.

By setting a cookie, ICCROM will remember the User the next time he/she visits the Site and therefore ICCROM will not have to ask questions that the User has already answered (such as address information).

The User is always free to decline our cookies if his/her browser permits, although in that case he/she may not be able to use certain features on the site and may be required to re-enter information more frequently to use certain services on the Site.

Staying Informed and Donating to ICCROM

ICCROM requests information from the User on its “Stay Informed” form and will also do so on its Secure Donate form (coming soon). Here the User must provide contact information (name, address, email, ICCROM activity attended etc.) and, for the upcoming donation form, financial information (credit card number, expiration date, etc). This information is used to conduct the transaction and help us better manage donors. If we have trouble processing a donation, this information is also used to contact the User. In this event, ICCROM will store this information securely and will not share it with anyone other than ICCROM’s partner organizations. In no case will personal information be rented or sold, nor will any sensitive financial information be shared.
