Privacy Policy

Welcome to Women Owned Media and Education Network (W.O.M.E.N).

This Privacy Policy outlines our practices and procedures regarding the collection, use, storage, sharing, and protection of your personal information. 

Who we are

Our website address is https://womenetworkinternational.org.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We are committed to protecting the privacy of our users. In order to provide you with our services, we collect certain personal information such as your name, email address, and other contact information when you sign up for our newsletter or contact us via our website. We may also collect anonymous information such as your IP address, the type of device you are using, and your browsing history on our website to help us improve our services. We use this information to provide you with better customer service and to improve your experience on our website.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

We collect your personal information when you fill out a contact form on our website. This information is used to respond to your inquiry and to provide you with the information or service you requested.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


We use third-party analytics tools such as Google Analytics to help us understand how visitors use our website. This information is used to improve our website and services. We may share this information with third-party service providers to assist us in analyzing the data.

Who do we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights do you have over your data

You have the right to access, correct, or delete your personal information that we have collected. You may also request that we restrict the processing of your personal information, object to the processing of your personal information, or request that we transfer your personal information to another organisation

Where do we send your data

Your personal information may be transferred to and processed by third-party service providers that we engage to help us provide our services. These service providers may be located in countries outside of the United States. We take reasonable steps to ensure that these service providers provide an adequate level of protection for your personal information.

Your contact information

If you have any questions or concerns about this Privacy Policy or our practices regarding your personal information, please contact us at ljones@womenetworkinternational.org.

Additional information

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time in order to reflect changes to our practices or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. Any changes to our Privacy Policy will be posted on this page.

In the event of a data breach, we will notify you and the relevant supervisory authority as required by applicable law. We have procedures in place to detect, investigate, and report any suspected data breaches.

What third parties we receive data from

We may receive personal data from third-party sources, such as social media platforms, analytics providers, and advertising networks.

What automated decision-making and/or profiling do we do with user data

We do not engage in automated decision-making or profiling with user data.

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

We may also be required to disclose personal data in response to a court order or other legal obligation, or to enforce our policies or protect our rights or property.
