Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. 

Because WorldFish, as the administrator of the fish.cgiar.org website, gathers certain types of information about the users of the Site, we want to ensure that you fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information.

This privacy policy discloses what information we gather on the Site and how we use it.

What information does WorldFish collect?

Personal information

You can access and use the Site without providing any personal information. If you register for an email newsletter, post to a blog or fill out a feedback form, you may be asked for information that helps to identify you, such as your name, email address, organization and website. This information is used for technical and customer administration of the Site only and is not shared with third parties.

Non-personally identifiable information

We may track and analyze information about the usage of the Site. Only summaries of visitors’ behavior are produced. Examples of this type of information include statistics on most popular and least popular pages.

The purpose of this data collection is so that WorldFish can better understand the preferences of the Site’s visitors and improve the Site. The information collected cannot be traced back to a particular individual and is never connected with any personal information you supply to us.

Use of cookies and web beacons

When you register for one of our services, WorldFish sets a cookie, a small bit of code stored on your computer’s hard drive that enables you to manage your subscriptions and online profile. By setting this cookie, WorldFish will remember you the next time you visit and won’t have to bother you by asking questions you have already answered (like address information).

You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although in that case you may not be able to use certain features on the Site and may be required to re-enter information more frequently to use certain services on the Site.

IP addresses

In addition, WorldFish also records your IP address, which is the Internet address of your computer, and information such as your browser type and operating system. This information helps us learn about the geographical distribution of our Site visitors and the technology they use to access the Site.

Third-party sites

The Site may feature aggregated content from third party websites (including websites of CGIAR Centers and CGIAR Research Programs) and/or include links to such websites. This privacy policy does not apply to such aggregated content or to such third party websites, which are governed by their own privacy policies.
