Privacy Policy


ECOTERRA Intl., which maintains this site on behalf of all Ogiek people, has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. We respect our visitors' interests in the sensitive issues of human rights and it is our policy not to exploit it.

We do not use cookies on our site. Our sole source of information about visitors comes from either voluntarily provided personal information or from our monthly report of server statistics. The report reveals such information as the number of visitors from each domain, the number of successful requests for its Web pages, and how many hits are made to each page. The report contains only aggregate information; no information about specific individuals is ever recorded or stored.

ECOTERRA gets copies of action alerts sent from its site in order to see which countries are best represented in particular campaigns. This helps the Ogiek and us to plan future campaigns. All information provided on these forms, including names and e-mail addresses, is provided optionally by the visitor. ECOTERRA does not use this information gained for any other purpose.

This site does contain many links to other sites. ECOTERRA is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of those sites.

In coordinating campaigns with other human rights organizations, ECOTERRA Intl. may occasionally find it useful to share with these groups broad demographic information about subscribers (such as the number of subscribers and the countries they come from). However, ECOTERRA Intl. will never provide specific information about its subscribers to them or other parties, public or private, including information on any other information given to us voluntarily and confidentially.
