The Center for UFO Studies (CUFOS) is committed to maintaining the privacy and security of its users’ information.
CUFOS collects limited data about you when you sign up to join our community, when you provide information by reporting a sighting, or when you leave a message using the contact form, such as name, email address, location, or details about a UFO sighting. CUFOS may use that data to respond to your requests or provide further notifications to you. CUFOS may also contact you as needed to provide important announcements regarding our activities or to process and respond to your UFO reports.
If you report a sighting to CUFOS or leave a message, your text and its metadata are retained indefinitely, as is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected. When a user requests to have any personal information deleted, the Center will take appropriate steps to destroy the information securely.
CUFOS may make public some 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.
CUFOS 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. CUFOS 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.
CUFOS takes reasonable precautions to protect the information it collects from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. CUFOS uses appropriate security measures to protect personal information both online and offline.
CUFOS operates globally and may collect personal information from users in various countries. For users in the European Union, CUFOS is committed to compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). CUFOS 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.
