Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At WMIDMUN, we have a few fundamental principles:

William and Mary Middle School Model United Nations ("WMIDMUN") operates the website wmidmun.org. It is WMIDMUN's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.


Website Visitors and Mobile Users

Like most web operators, WMIDMUN collects non-personally identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. WMIDMUN's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how WMIDMUN's visitors use its tools. From time to time, WMIDMUN may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

WMIDMUN also collects potentially personally identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. WMIDMUN does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally identifying information, as described below.


Gathering of Personally Identifying Information

Certain visitors to WMIDMUN's web tools choose to interact with WMIDMUN in ways that require WMIDMUN to gather personally identifying information. The amount and type of information that WMIDMUN gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our annual Model United Nations conference to provide a name, username, email address, and telephone number. Those who engage in transactions with WMIDMUN by purchasing admission to the WMIDMUN conference are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, WMIDMUN collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with WMIDMUN. WMIDMUN does not disclose personally identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in the use of some of our web tools.


Aggregated Statistics

WMIDMUN may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, WMIDMUN may monitor conference registrations performed on WMIDMUN.org in the aggregate for market research. WMIDMUN may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, WMIDMUN does not disclose personally identifying information other than as described below.


Protection of Certain Personally Identifying Information

WMIDMUN discloses potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on WMIDMUN's behalf or to provide services available at WMIDMUN's web tools, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using WMIDMUN's web tools, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. WMIDMUN will not rent or sell potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, WMIDMUN discloses potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when WMIDMUN believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of WMIDMUN, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a WMIDMUN website and have supplied your email address, WMIDMUN may occasionally send you an email to tell you about news and events, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with WMIDMUN and our conference. We primarily use our website and mobile apps to communicate this type of information, so we keep this type of communication to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. WMIDMUN takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information.


Cookies
