LabourStart has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website: LabourStart as well as LabourStart Campaigns.
Registering your details: Our site's registration form for joining the LabourStart mailing list requires users to give us their email addresses only. Your name, union, and country are entirely optional. We use that contact information to send you occasional mailings, averaging once per week. We do not share our list with anyone. Every mailing we send out to this list includes a reminder of how to unsubscribe from the list.
External links: This site contains links to other sites. LabourStart is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites.
Campaigns: When you send off a campaign message (of protest or solidarity), you are revealing some details to whoever is the target of the campaign. The only details that we require are your name and email address. The targets of campaigns may be corporations or governments, and copies of messages are forwarded on at the request of the union which has asked us to do the campaign. We inform unions which request campaigns from us to not use the email addresses which they might receive this way except to possibly do a one-off mailing to thank participants.
Security measures: This site has stringent security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. These include regular backups of all data, including mailing lists; access to all our information is password protected.
Your IP address: We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site.
Data Protection Act, U.K.: LabourStart is currently registered as a data controller with the Information Commissioner in the U.K.
