On behalf of the website provider Google will use the transmitted information for the purpose of evaluating the use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your truncated IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser.

Your data will not be sold to third parties nor will it be made available or made accessible to third parties outside of this declaration without your consent. Democracy Without Borders or any of its chapters may pass data on to third parties if, for reasons of cost-effectiveness or technical support, we make use of services provided by external providers that we would otherwise provide ourselves, e.g. sending donation receipts. These external providers will not be allowed to use data for other purposes.
