Disclaimer of liability

In the preparation of this website, every effort has been made to offer the most current, correct, and clearly expressed information possible. Nevertheless, inadvertent errors may occur. In particular, but without limiting anything here, GRM International disclaims any responsibility for typographical errors and accuracy of the information that may be contained on Gender Hub web pages. GRM International also reserves the right to make changes at any time without notice.

The information and data included on Gender Hub web pages has been compiled from a variety of sources. Unless expressly stated otherwise, opinions given on this website are those of the individuals making them, and not those of GRM International or its funders: the programme is not responsible for such opinions or any claims resulting from them. Further, GRM International makes no warranties or representations whatsoever regarding the quality, content, completeness, or adequacy of such information and data. In any situation where printed publications differ from the text contained in this system, the printed documents take precedence.

Some parts of the Gender Hub website are interactive, and we encourage contributions by users, which may or may not be subject to editorial control prior to being posted on the website. GRM International accepts no responsibility or liability for any material communicated by third parties in this way. GRM International reserves the right at its sole discretion to remove, review, edit or delete any content at our own discretion.

Unacceptable use

You must not use any part of the website for any purpose which is illegal, immoral, offensive to others or in breach of others’ rights, or submit any content of that nature. This includes, but is not limited to any content or purpose which is discriminatory or harassing on the grounds of race, gender, religion, age or any other personal attribute, foul language, inciting hatred, sexually explicit, abusive, defamatory, in breach of copyright or other rights and such other activity as GRM International may from time to time determine is unacceptable. GRM International may remove or block access to any content or communication for any purpose. If you feel that your rights are infringed by anything on this site, please contact the Gender Hub editorial team (details below) giving a full description of the offending items and reasons.

Storage and use of personal information

GRM International is committed to protecting your privacy. If you have any questions about our privacy policy, please e-mail genderhub.ng@gmail.com.

When you visit the Gender Hub website, we log non-personally-identifiable information including IP address, profile information, aggregate user data, and browser type. We use this data to monitor usage and improve our website services.

In cases where you have provided Gender Hub with personal data, this may be used internally by GRM International to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the services we provide. We may also use this information to contact you in the future unless or until such a time that you say you do not wish us to do so.

When you request to receive information, publications or eNewletters, you will need to provide a limited amount of information that identifies you personally. This may include one or more of the following: your name, address, telephone number, email or other information appropriate to your request.

We will not share your personal information with third parties. The Gender Hub website publishes a database containing information about individuals and organisations. If you wish to register your personal details for use on these publicly available databases, please refer to the section below entitled ‘Publishing your personal information on Gender Hub‘.

The database holding your personal details is held in the UK and the 1998 UK Data Protection Act applies. You have the right to inspect and update your personal details. You can do this yourself by following the instructions given on this website. If you require help with this, please contact the Gender Hub Team (genderhub.ng@gmail.com) who will process your request within a reasonable time.

Use of ‘cookies’

We want to ensure that Gender Hub is easy to use and reliable. This sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your computer, including small files known as cookies. These files cannot be used to identify you personally.

These pieces of information are used to improve our services for you by, for example:

  • enabling a site to recognise your device so you don’t have to give the same information several times during one task
  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using our sites, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast

How you can control cookies:

You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see AboutCookies.org. You can delete all the cookies already on your computer and you can set most browsers to block them being placed. But if you do this, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit the site.

What we use cookies for:

Several cookies are set by our web servers to ensure that your session is maintained for the duration of your visit (until you close your web browser), to help the site remember your settings and preferences (so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to us) and to help us to diagnose and improve the website.

We also use cookies set by Google Analytics which allow us to measure visitor numbers and website usage. Again, these cookies do not identify you personally but simply assist GRM International with trends of web pages being read and influencing new content and improved visitor usability. (The particular cookies used for this are: _utma, _utmb, _utmc, _utmv and _utmz.)

For further details on the cookies set by Google Analytics, please refer to the Google Code website.

Email subscription services

You should not enter information on behalf of another person or about any other person. Your name and email address will be used only for delivering to you the services to which you have subscribed, for sending information about these services, for sending you password reminders and for validating security. They will not be provided to any third parties without your express consent.

If you are sharing your email address with other people, GRM International cannot protect any information you provide against access by the other users of your email address, nor can GRM International prevent other users of your email address changing your subscription details.

Publishing your personal information on Gender Hub

If you choose to publish your personal information on Gender Hub you are required to provide accurate information about yourself and accept sole and full responsibility for this and for keeping the information up to date. You should not enter information on behalf of another person or about any other person

By providing your information to us, you are giving your permission for your personal information to be made freely and publicly available via the internet to any internet user accessing the website. A user will be able to view your information in a web browser but will not be able to change your information held and displayed by the website. Your information could be passed in this way to third parties in any country worldwide. If you do not wish to allow this type of access to your information, do not enter your information.

The inclusion of any information in the service may be subject to acceptance procedures. Entering your information may not result in automatic inclusion in the service. By entering your information, you are submitting information to any approval process in place.

By submitting materials to Gender Hub you agree to GRM International granting a CC4.0 licence to the content provided in accordance with DFID Open Access Policy (available at https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/181176/DFIDResearch-Open-and-Enhanced-Access-Policy.pdf ’).

GRM International reserves the right to edit each contribution (within the limits of the 1998 UK Data Protection Act). If any of the information submitted is deemed to be offensive, inflammatory or materially misleading by GRM International (in its sole discretion), GRM International reserves the right to refuse to publish contributions.

Password protected services

You are responsible for the safeguarding of any information, such as passwords and user IDs needed for use of your computer and/or your account with Gender Hub, and GRM International will not be responsible for any consequences of such information failing to be adequately safeguarded.

You should not enter information on behalf of another person or about any other person.

You are required to use all reasonable endeavours to ensure against unauthorised access to the service, in particular the use of user names and passwords by unauthorised individuals. Password reminders and other information from the service will be sent to the email address you have given.
