Introduction

This privacy notice is applicable to visitors of the JustPeace Labs website or the below related services that may provide personal data to JustPeace Labs. 

This website is owned and operated by JustPeace Labs (or “us” or “we”). JustPeace Labs takes your privacy seriously and is committed to handling your personal data in a fair and secure manner. Below we describe the personal data we collect and our use of that personal data.

This privacy notice applies to all personal data collected and used by us when you attend a training, apply for a pro bono support, receive any other type of support from us (“Services”), or when you visit our website.

Who we are

Our website address is: http://justpeacelabs.org

JustPeace Labs is a non-profit organization whose mission is to support peace and human rights protections using the power of technology. In support of that work, JustPeace Labs may collect and use your personal data through your use of our Services or visits to the website.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

The personal data we collect from the website or our Services may include the following:

Personal data you provide to us:

  • Your contact details – your name and your email address.
  • Other data you share with us intentionally via email or other methods.
  • When you make a donation on our website – your name, email address, credit card information, address, and phone number. We use this information to process your donations, to keep you updated on your donations, and to personalize your website experience. 
  • Other information you provide to us, either voluntarily or upon request.

Third-party cookies and pixels:

In the course of utilizing analytics, customizing your experience, or related activities, our third-party ad and analytics providers (Google) may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser. Information about your visit to this website, (such as the number of times you viewed and/or clicked items on the page as well as other analytics information such as IP address, location, device, and some other personal data), is used only for internal reporting and optimization. We do NOT allow third-party vendors or providers to utilize your personal data except in support of internal JustPeace Labs operations. Users may opt out of JustPeace Labs’ use of cookies by refusing this Privacy Notice.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
