What data do we gather?
Data is collected by OMHN in two main ways.
- Through the site’s technology, which collects information on site visitors such as their unique IP addresses, computer browsers, and the specific actions taken on the site, such as page clicks
- Through correspondence, such as when you email us questions or requests
Why and how do we use it?
OMHN uses data in two main ways:
- To maintain communications with stakeholders, such as in the form of emails with information on events, and updates to our policies
- To conduct analyses on the way people use omhn.org to enhance our services
We do NOT use data in the following ways:
- Selling users’ data, such as IP addresses of site visitors
- Share any other information that can be used to identify users, sometimes referred to as “personally-identifiable information” (PII), to any unaffiliated organizations, except as required by law due to claims and/or legal proceedings.
How we keep data safe
Electronic data is stored on secure computer systems controlled by OMHN team members and/or affiliated organizations, such as third party developers who help maintain our site. In some cases, data is stored by unaffiliated third party organizations such as Google or Facebook, particularly when users message us through those platforms.
Although we will take all reasonable measures to secure user data, we cannot guarantee its security on systems belonging to unaffiliated organizations, such as Google or Facebook. Likewise, OMHN is not responsible for data security on users’ local devices, such as when their use of omhn.org appears in their browser’s internet history, or when it is registered by their own internet service provider (ISP).
If you have additional questions about how we keep data safe, or for advice on how to use our services while keeping your information secure, please email our Data Protection Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
