Privacy Policy

Your privacy on the Internet is of utmost importance to ActivePILOT. This privacy statement describes ActivePILOT’s policy concerning the gathering and sharing of visitors’ information through the ActivePILOT website. It applies to all “ActivePILOT sites” – that is, all sites within the “” domain name. You should note that through this site you may reach or be directed to other sites that relate to ActivePILOT or the sites of our subprojects (the various websites and domains around the world whose job is to support ActivePILOT); all these sites have their privacy statements which are similar to this one but may vary slightly. By visiting the ActivePILOT website, you are accepting the practices described in this policy.

What information does ActivePILOT collect?

Normal website usage

In general, you can browse the ActivePILOT site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. The only information we gather during general browsing is from standard server logs. These include your IP (Internet Protocol) address, domain name, browser type, operating system, and information such as the website that referred you to us, the files you downloaded, the pages you visit, and the dates/times of those visits.

Collection of personally identifiable information

If you register for a newsletter, log on to certain ActivePILOT sites, order a book or other merchandise, request information, provide feedback, apply for a job, join a discussion group, or join an electronic mailing list, you will be asked to provide personal information such as your name, postal address, and e-mail address. This information is collected only with your knowledge and permission and is kept in various ActivePILOT databases. If you are purchasing something on the web, you may be asked to provide your credit card details.

ActivePILOT sites with specific requirements to collect personal information may publish a privacy policy specific for that site. In these cases, the site-specific policies will be complementary to this general ActivePILOT privacy policy but will give additional details for that particular use.

ActivePILOT’s websites use cookies to provide statistics that help us to give you the best experience of our sites. You can find out more on our cookies policy page or switch them off if you prefer. However, by continuing to use our sites without changing settings, you are agreeing to our use of cookies.

Joining electronic discussion groups may mean that other participants of the discussion group (including non-ActivePILOT employees) will see personal information that you have volunteered. For open discussion groups, this information will be public.

Special note about information from children

Several sites in the ActivePILOT domain are focused on children, including interactive sites such as group discussions. Some of these require user-specific information to be provided to ActivePILOT. We ask for the minimum amount of personal information in this case.

These parts of the ActivePILOT site are for children and authorized adults only and unauthorized adults are not to participate in these parts of the ActivePILOT site. (Obtaining user information helps us in that regard if needed.)

Children should make sure their parents, or the adults who are caring for them, know they are participating in the ActivePILOT sites and are providing this limited user information.

What does ActivePILOT do with the information it collects?

Normal web usage

The information gathered during general browsing of the “” domain is used to analyze trends and usage of the ActivePILOT site and to improve the usefulness of the site. It is not connected with any personal information. However, if you have registered with ActivePILOT in connection with any activity on the ActivePILOT site, the information we collect about your normal web usage will be identifiable to you.

Personally identifiable information

ActivePILOT may use the personal information you provide to:

  • Contact you – either in response to a query or suggestion, or to mail newsletters, documents, publications, etc. to you, and we also may provide the information to the ActivePILOT national committees so they can contact you as well.
  • Manage and process your job application.
  • Confirm your purchases and registrations on the site.
  • Obtain payment for purchases through the site (via credit card).
  • “Remember” your online profile and preferences.
  • Help you quickly find information that is relevant to you based on your interests and help us create site content most relevant to you.
  • Undertake statistical analysis.

What if I do not want to provide personal information?

Providing personal information on the ActivePILOT website is optional. If you choose not to provide personal information, you can still browse and use the ActivePILOT site, but you will not be able to conduct certain actions such as purchasing items, registering for a newsletter, or applying for a job.

Opting out and changing your information

At any time, you can cancel or modify your information by returning to the web page where you first provided the information and contacting the focal point for that page/relevant ActivePILOT department. Where contact details are not provided on the page, you can contact us for further information.


We do not sell or share any personally identifiable information volunteered on the ActivePILOT site to any third party without prior consent. We do, however, share some user information with our internal or external teams so that the whole ActivePILOT family can respond to your needs. Any information provided to ActivePILOT by users of the ActivePILOT site is held with the utmost care and security and will not be used in ways other than as outlined in this privacy policy, any site-specific policies, or in ways to which you have explicitly consented. ActivePILOT employs a range of techniques and security measures to protect the information maintained on our system from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.

However, ActivePILOT assumes no responsibility for the security of information.

The ActivePILOT site contains links to sites external to the domain. ActivePILOT is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such sites.
