Privacy notice

The Programme on Women, Peace and Security in Nigeria also known as ‘WPS Nigeria’ takes your privacy seriously and manages your data in accordance with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

WPS Nigeria is part of the localisation efforts of the Government of Nigeria, through the Federal Ministry of Women Affairs together with its partners, to meet its commitments on the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 to achieve the broad goal of gender-inclusive and sustainable peace in Nigeria through increased women’s effective participation in peace and security processes, peace negotiations, conflict prevention and resolution; and improved public perception on the role of women in peace and security, at all levels through opportunities for engagement and dialogue.

Our use of ‘data’ refers to any personal information we collect about you, such as your name and email address.

When you use our website, we automatically collect anonymous data about you using ‘cookies’. We do this to understand what information users are interested in and where we can make improvements in what we offer. To find out more about our use of cookies, read our cookies notice.

We use a third-party service called Google Analytics to track and analyse how people use and interact with our website. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. For the purposes of GDPR, we are the Data Controller and Google Analytics the Data Processor.

Under Article 6(1) of GDPR, the lawful basis for us processing your data is consent. We store cookies for 26 months or until you next visit our site – whichever is greater, at which point we will ask you to reconfirm your consent.

  • We promise to respect any personal data you share with us and will always store this information securely.
  • We will only use your personal data to provide the services you have requested and communicate with you in the ways you have agreed to.
  • We will never sell or share your personal data to other organisations to use for their own purposes, unless required to do so by law.
  • You can change or withdraw your consent for us to hold your personal data at any time. To do so, please use the contact details at the bottom of this page.

We’ve implemented physical, technical and organisational measures to protect your data, both on- and off-line, from improper access, use, alteration, destruction and loss.

The data we collect will only be accessible by web administrators and volunteers who have been granted explicit permission to access the information. Online data is password-protected and stored on secure servers, and offline data is stored in secure, locked cabinets in our offices – or, where relevant, in those of our partner organisations or companies.

We keep your information only for as long as is reasonable and necessary for the purposes you have shared it with us – which may be to fulfil statutory obligations. 

Where we use third-party companies to collect, store or process data, we ensure these companies are subject to GDPR (if within the EU) or the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework (if within the US) – which means they are certified to process data received from the EU.

Other than the purposes detailed above, we will only disclose your information if required to do so by law – for example, to comply with applicable laws, regulations and codes of practice, or in response to a valid request from a ‘competent authority’ under GDPR.

Your communications with our teams (including by telephone, email, mail or social media) may be monitored and/or recorded for training, quality control and compliance purposes to ensure that we continuously improve our customer service standards. Any information will be stored on our secure servers.
