This site is provided and managed by The Lotus Trust, Registered Charity no 1114304

The Lotus Trust has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for the website www.thelotustrust.org and consists of these areas:

Sharing of Information
We do not share your personally identifiable information with any other entities.

IP Address Logging
We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site. IP addresses are logged to track a user’s session. This gives thelotustrust.org an idea of which parts of our site users are visiting and when. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that a users session will be tracked, but the user will be anonymous.

What’s an IP Address?
When you are connected to the Internet, your computer has a unique Internet ID called an IP address. Most people that connect through a dial-up service, such as AOL or FreeServe, get a different IP address each time they login. Others might have a permanently assigned IP address, called a static IP address. It is difficult or impossible for a web site to collect personal information about you (i.e., your name, email address, etc.) from your IP address alone, though a static IP address makes this easier.

Cookies

Temporary and time-limited ‘persistent’ cookies might be used on our website from time to time. For example our font-size changer uses a cookie to preserver your settings as you move from page to another.

What’s a Cookie?
Cookies are pieces of information that a web site stores in your computer. Temporary cookies only last as long as your browser is running. Persistent cookies are stored on your hard disk (they take up very little space). Sites often use cookies to identify repeat visitors and offer them personalized service.

Links to Other Sites
This site might from time to time contain links to other sites. thelotustrust.org is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites.
