This Policy is supplemented by additional policies relevant to particular activities, and each of the supplemental policies is incorporated into this Policy. Here are examples of areas in which you will encounter supplemental privacy policies but this list is not exhaustive, but only indicative: if a supplemental policy is included on the Site with respect to a particular activity, or if one is included on a Third Party site relating to the mission of the Foundation, those supplemental policies will also apply and are also incorporated in this Policy.

Other information is up to your good judgment, e.g., do not provide personal information about yourself that could be misused by others in a chat room, bulletin board, blog or similar forum and do not provide personal information about others without their permission. The kinds of personal information we tend to request about you or others include but are not limited to your name, email address, native language, organization name, job title, city, state / province, region, age, locations for internet access and devices used.

We keep personal information for as long as we think is necessary or advisable and we reserve the right to retain it to the full extent not prohibited by law.

If a child under 13 has provided personal information, a parent or guardian may so inform us by writing us at Our Address for queries and notices (see below) and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete it from our database, subject to applicable law and this Policy.
If anyone believes they are a victim of identity theft entitled by law to request information from us, write us at Our Address For Queries and Notices and we'll explain what information we require in order to respond. After receiving that information, we will supply (without charge) information we then have that we are legally required to provide (subject to applicable law and reserving all rights and defences).
