For each visitor to our web site, our web server automatically records that visitor's IP address, the pages/resources that they viewed, and what site referred them to here if they clicked on a link (such as from a Google search), but not their e-mail address. This is standard information logged by most web servers.
This information helps us generate broad demographic statistics on what types of organisation are visiting the site and which pages they visit.
Our web content management software records search data and it will record email addresses if they are given in contact forms. The search data is aggregated to help us understand the wishes of visitors to our site more thoroughly, and the email addresses are used for legitimate contact purposes. We will never send you unsolicited emails due to your use of this web site.
We utilise Google Analytics to analyse the way that our visitors interact with this Web site, and we regularly use information that we glean from that service to improve the performance and usability of www.rainbow-europe.org. Google makes a Web browser add-in available to people who would rather not be 'seen' by their Analytics - it is available via this page: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
We provide a facility for you to send Community Exchange noticeboard items by email from within this site. Email addresses entered here are discarded after 3 days - they are retained for this period so that we can provide support to our users when necessary.
Do we share personal information?
The information we gather is not sold, given to, or otherwise shared with other organisations for commercial or any other purposes, unless we are ordered to by a court of law.
All we might share with other organisations, are aggregated statistics, none of which include personally identifiable information.
This web site links to many other web sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content on these sites. Nor do we guarantee that these sites and their content are still available.
If you're browsing Rainbow Europe using a public wi-fi network, or would prefer that your use of this web site is not viewable by intermediate parties, then please bookmark and use the SSL-encrypted version: https://www.rainbow-europe.org
This is not forced, as it may cause compatibility problems for older web browsers, and can impact on the web site's performance on slower mobile devices, but you should consider using it if you will be submitting any of your personal information, including your email address, to us via our web-forms. Any http URL on this web site should work using SSL encryption if prefixed with 'https' (s for secure) instead, though many web-browsers hide the 'http://' prefix on unencrypted pages, and so need to have 'https://' added to switch to the SSL version. If you switch to SSL then your current session on this web site should remain encrypted from that time, but incoming 3rd party-links are most likely to link to unencrypted pages.
