38 <h2> 0. Preliminaries </h2>
39 <p>
40 This policy discloses what information we gather about you when you visit any of our Web site, and when you issue or use our certificates. It describes how we use that information and how you can control it.
41 </p>
45 <h2>1. Website information</h2>
46 <p>
47 We collect two kinds of information about website users: 1) data that users volunteer by signing up to our website or when you send us an email via our contact form; and 2) aggregated tracking data we collect when users interact with our site.
48 </p>
50 <h2>2. Personal information</h2>
51 <p>
52 When you post to the contact form, you must provide your name and email address. When you sign up to the website, you must provide your name, email address, date of birth and some lost pass phrase question and answers.
53 </p>
54 <p>
55 We only share your information with any other organisation when so instructed by a CAcert arbitrator.
56 </p>
58 <h2>3. Aggregated tracking information</h2>
59 <p>
60 We analyse visitors' use of our sites by tracking information such as page views, traffic flow, search terms, and click through. We use this information to improve our sites. We also share this anonymous traffic and demographic information in aggregate form with advertisers and other business partners. We do not share any information with advertisers that can identify an individual user.
61 </p>
63 <h2>4. Cookies</h2>
64 <p>
65 Some of our advertisers use a third-party ad server to display ads. These ads may contain cookies. The ad server receives these cookies, and we don't have access to them.
66 </p>
67 <p>
68 We don't use cookies to store personal information, we do use sessions, and if cookies are enabled, the session will be stored in a cookie, and we do not look for cookies, apart from the session id. However if cookies are disabled then no information will be stored on or looked for on your computer.
69 </p>
71 <h2>5. Notification of changes</h2>
72 <p>
73 If we change our Privacy Policy, we will post those changes on www.CAcert.org. If we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users via email. Users will be able to opt out of any new use of their personal information.
74 </p>
76 <h2>6. How to update, correct, or delete your information</h2>
77 <p>
78 You are able to update, add and remove your information at any time via our web interface, log into the 'My Account' and then click on the 'My Details' section, and then click the relevant link
79 </p>
81 <h2>7. Privacy of certificates</h2>
82 <p>
83 CAcert does not automatically publish the certificates through a directory service or the website to other people than the user who requested the certificate. In the future, the user might be able to opt-in for publication of the certificates through a directory server by CAcert.
84 </p>
86 <h2>8. Privacy of user data</h2>
87 <p>
88 CAcert Assurers can see the name, birthday and the number of points by looking up the correct email address. No other person related data is published by CAcert.
89 </p>
91 <h2>9. Exceptions</h2>
92 <p>
93 A CAcert arbitrator may override this policy in a dispute.
94 To obtain access to confidential data, a dispute has to be filed.
95 </p>
