You can access some of the pages on the EthicalCargo Website without telling us who you are and without revealing any personal information. Our web servers collect anonymous logs during user visits to EthicalCargo Website. This information is used to create aggregate statistics, for example about when the EthicalCargo Website is accessed. These statistics help us understand how the EthicalCargo Website is used and provide us with information for improving it in the future.

How do we use information collected on members?

All hotline enquiries will be treated as confidential requests for research or assessment and will not be disclosed to third parties.

Sharing of members’ personal information

The information you provide will not be sold or rented nor will it be shared with third parties unless we have your permission, or are required to disclose the information by law. Other members can not see the information you have submitted about yourself to the EthicalCargo website.
