Global Hand: Privacy Notice

These will not specifically identify the User. The information will only be used internally by Global Hand staff for web site traffic analysis.

If the User provides unique identifying information, such as name, address and other information on forms stored on this Site, Global Hand will not disclose the information with any other party except as part of the expressed function of the website.

For example:

Specifics of the offer are displayed publicly on the website. Contact and organisation details are not made public and no other users can view these under normal conditions. Verified non-profit users within Global Hand, however, will be allowed to access the associated organisation and contact information if they first express interest in the offer and share their own contact information with the user who made the offer.

The contact information supplied will not made public. Users registered with Global Hand who have logged into the website will be able to see the contact name when viewing the offer/need responded to, however, they will not see further contact details. The contact name may be linked to details of the user’s organisation (the organisation profile) if such information was previously supplied and authorised for public use within Global Hand.
  • Publishing information on Global Hand: It is possible for an organisation to become publicly listed on the Global Hand website.
