Your privacy in general
Workers’ Health Education respects the privacy of you as a visitor. If you are visiting and consulting the descriptions of the learning materials, we do not collect personal information from you as a user. Neither do you have to give personal information to us when visiting the website, when using learning material that is referred to (unless the source site we are referring to asks for that information), or when using the Forum to add plain text or exchange a link where other educational material can be found.
Our website makes use of Google Analytics, so that we are able to analyze the interest and origin (country) of our visitors, in order to make better services in future.

However, upon your first visit, you are asked to accept cookies from our website or not. If you have accepted, you are not asked again.

Registered users and Forum
If you want to join the Forum for uploading or exchanging material with other users, you have to register with limited personal information: name, e-mail address, and country. This information will be used for the communication between you as a user and the moderator of Workers’ Health Education and for administrative and statistical purposes. When registering, you state that you are voluntarily sending your personal information to Workers’ Health Education. This information will not be distributed towards third parties.
To know more about our users and about the quality and relevance of the Workers’ Health Education initiative, we may ask the registered users periodically to send us, on voluntary basis, information that we need to improve our facilities and policy. We may also ask registered users to contact us, on voluntary basis, in order to collaborate with us to improve the work that we want to complete.
