- The Micronutrient Initiative site does not automatically gather any specific personal information from you, such as your name, phone number or e-mail address or street address during your visit to our site. This information is obtained only if you supply it voluntarily, usually through contacting us via e-mail or registering for our e-bulletin.
- All personal information created, held or collected by this Agency is protected under the federal Privacy Act. This means that at any point of collection you will be asked for consent to collect your information, and you will be informed of the purpose for which it is being collected and how to exercise your right of access to that information.
- Visitor information is not disclosed to anyone except Micronutrient Initiative personnel who need the information to respond to a request. The information you give us will be shared with another organization ONLY if your inquiry relates to that department. We do not use the information to create individual profiles, nor do we disclose the information to anyone outside those who need to provide you with a response in the federal government.
- The Micronutrient Initiative occasionally use “cookies” to track how our visitors use this site or to determine sites previously visited. The system will notify you before any cookies are used so that you may refuse them. (A “cookie” is a file that may be placed on your hard drive without your knowledge by a web site to allow it to monitor your use of the site.)
- Unless specifically noted otherwise, neither electronic systems nor e-mail are secure information transmission methods. It is not recommended that sensitive personal information be transmitted electronically.
