This Privacy Policy outlines the ways in which the National UFO Reporting Center (the “Center”) collects, uses, and protects the personal information of its users. The Center is committed to maintaining the privacy and security of its users’ information and ensuring that it is used in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Information Collection and Use:

The Center collects information from its users through its website and over the phone, including personal information such as name, email address, location, and details about a UFO sighting. The Center may also collect information about the user’s device, including IP address, browser type, and operating system.

The Center uses the personal information collected from its users to process and respond to their UFO reports.

Non-Personal Data:

The Center may make public non-personal data submitted through its website or over the phone, such as the date, time, location and description of a UFO sighting. This information will not be linked to any personal information, and will not be used to identify individual users.

Sharing of Information:

The Center will not sell or rent the personal information it collects to third parties, nor will it make it publicly available, unless the user authorizes it. The Center may, however, share information with third-party service providers who assist with the operation and maintenance of the website, such as website hosting and data analysis services.

Data Security:

The Center takes reasonable precautions to protect the information it collects from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. The Center uses appropriate security measures to protect personal information both online and offline.

Data Retention:

The Center will retain personal information indefinitely, as is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected. When a user requests to have their personal information deleted, the Center will take appropriate steps to securely destroy the information.

International Use:

The Center operates globally and may collect personal information from users in various countries. By using the Center’s website or submitting a UFO report, users agree to the collection, storage, and processing of their personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

For users in the European Union, the Center is committed to compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The Center will process personal information in accordance with the principles of the GDPR, including ensuring that the processing is lawful, fair, and transparent, and that the personal information is collected for specified, explicit, and legitimate purposes.

Changes to Privacy Policy:

The Center may update this Privacy Policy from time to time, and any changes will be reflected on this page. Users are encouraged to periodically review this Privacy Policy to stay informed of any changes.
