What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We collect personal data through the use of our websites in two ways: data you directly provide to us and data generated by your activity on the websites.
Data you directly provide. You can choose to voluntarily provide us personal data in the context of registering and subscribing to online newsletters. This data enables us to provide the services you have requested and may include your name, email address, job title, and organisation.
Data generated by your activity. In order to ensure the effective functioning and security of our websites and to better understand visitor behavioural patterns, as you browse our websites we automatically collect:
- Log information such as the pages you visit, the time/date of your visit as well as your internet prototcol (IP) address.
- Device and software information such as your browser specifications and operating system
Access and storage
In general, access to your personal data is limited to appropriate staff within the organisation. In some circumstances we make your data available outside the OECD, such as for:
- Payment processing: We use a third-party service, PayPal, USA to process online payments.
- Analytics: We use third-party services Google Analytics, USA, CXSense, Norway and CrazyEgg, USA, to help us understand visitor behaviour by allowing the service access to the data generated by your activity and store it using cookies. This data is processed in a way that does not directly identify you.
- Email communications: We use third party services Adestra Upland Platform, UK, and MailChimp, USA for sending bulk email communications such as newsletters, platform alerts, and event notifications. These services store contact information that you provide to us via MyOECD as well as information about your interactions with these emails; such as opens and clicks.
- Online surveys: We occasionally use Checkbox Survey, USA and Survicate, Poland, to run online surveys of user views.
- Online communities: We use third party services, Zapnito, UK to provide you online networking environments. These services store contact information that you provide and data generated by your activity and store it using cookies.
Data you provide directly is typically kept until either (1) you unsubscribe from the service requested or until (2) two years after your last transaction. We store data about your activity on our websites for two years, after which time it is deleted. We keep data on email activity for two years, after which time it is deleted.
We do not sell, trade, rent or otherwise share your Personal Information with third parties without your consent. However, certain third-party service providers, such as for the collection of analytics, have their own privacy policies in respect of the information that we are required to provide to them in order to use their services. For these third-party service providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so that you can understand the manner in which your non-personal and personal Information will be handled by such providers.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide analytics services on the website (“third party cookies”).

You can opt out of Google Analytics by installing Google’s opt-out browser add-on.
Data Used: The contact form submission data is stored in the database of the site on which it was submitted and is emailed directly to the owner of the form (i.e. the site author who published the page on which the contact form resides). This email will include the submitter’s IP address, timestamp, name, email address, website, and message.
Data Used: Please refer to the appropriate Google Analytics documentation for the specific type of data it collects.
Activity Tracked: This feature sends page view events over to Google Analytics for consumption.
Data Used: In order to record page views with additional loads, the following information is used: IP address, WordPress.com user ID (if logged in), WordPress.com username (if logged in), user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, country code.
Activity Tracked: Page views will be tracked with each additional load (i.e. when you scroll down to the bottom of the page and a new set of posts loads automatically). A page view event will also be sent to the site Google Analytics account with each additional load.
Data Used: A visitor’s preference on viewing the mobile version of a site.
Activity Tracked: A cookie (
akm_mobile) is stored for 3.5 days to remember whether or not a visitor of the site wishes to view its mobile version. Learn more about this cookie.
Data Used: In order to check login activity and potentially block fraudulent attempts, the following information is used: attempting user’s IP address, attempting user’s email address/username (i.e. according to the value they were attempting to use during the login process), and all IP-related HTTP headers attached to the attempting user.
Activity Tracked: Failed login attempts (these include IP address and user agent). We also set a cookie (
jpp_math_pass) for 1 day to remember if/when a user has successfully completed a math captcha to prove that they’re a real human. Learn more about this cookie.
Data Synced: Failed login attempts, which contain the user’s IP address, attempted username or email address, and user agent information.
Data Used: When official sharing buttons are active on the site, each button loads content directly from its service in order to display the button as well as information and tools for the sharing party. As a result, each service can in turn collect information about the sharing party.
Data Used: For video play tracking the following information is used: viewer’s IP address, WordPress.com user ID (if logged in), WordPress.com username (if logged in), user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, country code.
