Privacy Policy

    August 25th 2018

    The CARTEEH Datahub cares about your privacy. This privacy policy explains what information we collect through your use of the CARTEEH Datahub application and how we treat that information. By using the CARTEEH Datahub application, you acknowledge and accept that these are the privacy practices governing the CARTEEH Datahub application. This web site may contain links to other web sites and use third-party applications and/or software. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these third parties, and you should read through their practices before clicking or using them.

    Information Collected

    Information Voluntarily Provided by You

    When you register for an account with the CARTEEH Datahub, we collect your name, email address, (and optionally) institution and position. Additionally, if the guestbook feature is activated for a particular dataset, then any information filled out in the guestbook is made available to the dataset manager and dataset curator.

    Information Collected Through Your Use of the CARTEEH Datahub Application

    When you access this web site, our web server software generates log files of the IP address of your computer. These web server logs are retained on a temporary basis and then deleted completely from our systems. When you download a file from the CARTEEH Datahub, our software collects user account data such as your name, username, email, institution and position if provided (or the session ID data for guest users) and accompanying download data such as the time of the download. This information is then made available to the dataset manager and dataset curator of the file.

    We also use Matomo to collect data on how our users are using the CARTEEH Datahub so that we can improve its functionality. The Matoma server is hosted by the CARTEEH Datahub and the Privacy Policy and Terms of Use describe in this document applies.

    Use of Information

    We use your IP address and files you access to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Web site by identifying (1) which parts of our site are most heavily used, and (2) which portion of our audience comes from within the CARTEEH network. We also use this information to tailor site content to user needs and to generate aggregate statistical reports. At no time do we disclose site usage by individual users. With the exception of the data collected during downloads, which are made available only to the file owner, we do not share any personally identifiable information we gather or develop about our users to any third parties for any purpose unless required by law. Any reports we may share externally would use unidentifiable, aggregated data.


    We use cookies to maintain a user’s identity between web sessions.


    This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control.

    Changes to this Privacy Policy

    The CARTEEH Datahub may revise this privacy policy at its sole discretion. Please check this page regularly for our current practices. If you have any questions about this privacy policy, the practices of this site, or your dealings with this site, you can contact: support@carteehdata.org.
