Our disclosure of your personal information to third parties
We may share your personal information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this privacy policy:

We may share your user personal information, if you consent, after letting you know what information will be shared, with whom, and why.

  • We may share your data for security reasons. E.g. If you are a member of an organization, opensourceprocurement.org may share your username, your usage data and your device information associated with that organization with an owner and/or administrator of the organization who has agreed to the corporate terms of service or applicable customer agreements, to the extent that such information is provided only to investigate or respond to a security incident that affects or compromises the security of that particular organization.
  • We may share your data for legal disclosure. opensourceprocurement.org strives for transparency in complying with legal process and legal obligations. opensourceprocurement.org may disclose user personal information or other information we collect about you to law enforcement if required in response to a court order, search warrant, a similar government order, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to comply with our legal obligations, to protect our property or rights, or those of third parties or the public at large.
  • We share certain aggregated, non-personally identifying information with others about how our users, collectively, use opensourceprocurement.org.
  • We do not sell your user personal information for monetary or other consideration.

Please note that these third parties may be in other countries where the laws on processing personal information may be less stringent than in your country.

  • Cookies opensourceprocurement.org uses “cookies.” Cookies are text files we place in your computer’s browser to store your preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your e-mail address or other personally identifiable information unless you choose to provide this information to us by, for example, registering at one of our sites. However, once you choose to furnish the site with personal information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. We use cookies to understand site usage and to improve the content and offerings on our sites. We also may use cookies to offer you programs, or services. You have many choices with regard to the management of cookies on your computer. All major browsers allow you to block or delete cookies from your system. To learn more about your ability to manage cookies, please consult the privacy features in your browser.
  • Web Beacons opensourceprocurement.org and third parties may also use small pieces of code called “web beacons” or “clear gifs” to collect anonymous and aggregate advertising metrics, such as counting page views, promotion views, or advertising responses. These “web beacons” may be used to deliver cookies that conform to the cookie requirements of opensourceprocurement.org.
  • Web Analytics Services We use Google Analytics, a service for the marketing analysis of the site provided by Google, Inc. Google Analytics uses cookies to allow us to see how you use our site, so we can improve your experience. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to the site is restricted by the Google Analytics terms of use and the Google privacy policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to the site by disabling cookies in your browser. If you prefer to not have data reported by Google Analytics, you can install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
  • Website Links We may create links to other websites. We will make a reasonable effort to link only to sites that meet similar standards for maintaining each individual’s right to privacy. However, many other sites that are not associated with or authorized by opensourceprocurement.org may have links leading to our site. opensourceprocurement.org cannot control these links and we are not responsible for any content appearing on these sites. Since this website does not control the privacy policies of third parties, you are subject to the privacy practices of that third party. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose any personal information to others.
  • App Links A given application may provide you with an advertising link to other, third-party sites and applications. Such third-party sites will have their own data collection practices and policies. Please review the privacy policy for such sites and exercise caution in providing information that personally identifies you. We have no responsibility, access, or control over the data collection practices and policies of such third-party sites and applications. You will use such sites and applications at your own risk and outside of the scope of this Privacy Policy. The provision of such advertisements is done on an “As Is” basis, with no endorsements or representations.
  • Other opensourceprocurement.org may use third parties to present or serve the advertisements that you may see at its web pages and to conduct research about the advertisements and web usage. This Privacy Policy does not cover any use of information that such third parties may have collected from you or the methods used by the third parties to collect that information.

International transfers of your personal data

Information collected from you may be stored and processed in any country in which opensourceprocurement.org employees maintain facilities, and by accessing our sites and using our services, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country. Such countries may have laws which are different, and potentially not as protective, as the laws of your own country.
