Privacy Policy
Our website may contain links to other third party websites, which are outside our control and are not covered by this Privacy Policy. If you access other sites using the links provided, the operators of these sites may collect information from you which will be used by them in accordance with their Privacy Policy, which may differ from ours.

Data Collection and Intended Use
In our website, we collect two (2) types of data about users: active data (such as name, mail address, e-mail address, telephone/fax numbers, password, etc.) when voluntarily submitted by visitors for registration, contests, etc.; and passive data (such as browser type, IP address, page reference, etc.)

From time to time, we may ask our site visitors to answer survey questions. Surveys generally deal with the site, our products or categories of products. We may ask for age or age ranges, gender, and other non-personally identifiable data. No personally identifiable data is requested and the data collected is not tied to any personally identifiable data that may have been previously provided. Data gathered from polls and surveys are only for internal use by the DOST-FNRI.

The data controller collecting the personal data described herein is DOST-FNRI.

The personal data submitted by you are used only for the express purposes stated at the location where you provide it. We will not use personally identifiable data for direct marketing or unsolicited follow-up unless you have given us your express permission for such use.
