Privacy Policy

Last Updated October 21, 2022

We are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy online. Please read the following privacy policy to understand how your personal information will be treated when you use this site.

What personally identifiable information do we collect?

We collect personal information that you voluntarily provide to us when you express an interest in obtaining information about updates to the site through the sign up form, or when you contact us through the contact form. If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence.

The personal information we collect may include the following:

  • Name
  • Email address
  • Organisation
  • Contact Preferences

We do not process sensitive information. All information that you provide to us must be true, complete and accurate, and you must notify us of any changes to such personal information.

We automatically collect certain information (including, but not limited to, traffic data, location data, web logs and other communication data) when you visit, use or navigate the site. This information does not reveal your specific identity (e.g. name or contact information) but may include device and usage information. This information is primarily needed to maintain the security and operation of our services, and for our internal analytics and reporting purposes.

We also collect information through cookies. You can find out more about this in our Cookie Policy.

How do we use your information?

We use the information we collect about you to help us understand more about how the site is used and to be able to provide you with information that you request from us or which we feel may interest you, where you have consented to be contacted for such purposes (such as through the site updates sign up form). You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.

Who is collecting information?

When you provide personal information to the Arms Trade Litigation Monitor website, you are sharing that information with the site creators (c/o Saferworld) alone unless stated otherwise. For example, when you are using our site alerts sign up form, your information is being collected and held through Mailchimp.

With whom do we share your information?

We will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information, except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it. Information submitted to us is only available to employees managing this information for purposes of sending you emails based on your request for information.

How do we protect your personal information?

We are committed to taking reasonable steps to protect the personally identifiable information that you provide to us. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) seeks to safeguard individual’s rights related to the gathering, storing, processing and transferring of their personal data held by others. The creators of this site understand and comply with our obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we use our best efforts to ensure its security on our systems.

Why did you receive an email from the Arms Trade Litigation Monitor?

If you received a mailing from us, your email address is either listed with us as someone who has expressly shared this address for the purpose of receiving information in the future (‘opt-in’). We respect your time and attention by controlling the frequency of our mailings depending on your indicated preferences.

Changing your preferences

We will only keep your personal information for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this privacy notice. You have the right to request access and obtain a copy of information we hold about you and request its erasure.

If you would like to make any changes to the personal information we hold or review and update your email preferences, you can get in touch with us through our contact form or by email at At the end of each email we send, you can also click on the unsubscribe button. This will automatically remove you from the mailing list.
