Privacy Policy

As a general rule, the privacy of site visitors shall always be held with utmost importance by the Embassy. However, please note that when you visit the Embassy website:

  1. To read or download information: the site owner may collect and store information for statistical purposes. For example, the site owner may count the number of visitors to the different sections of our site to help us make these pages more useful to visitors. Similar information is gathered for anonymous ftp, remote account login, or for other comparable types of connections.
  2. To send us an email: you may be providing us with personal information (e.g. name, address, email address, and other details). We may store such personal details provided to us so that we may respond to the request or to otherwise resolve the subject matter of your email. In no case will the content of your email be disclosed to third parties unless covered by a legal order issued by a duly constituted authority.
  3. To register: for some site-related services, the site owner may ask users for specific information or to fill in an online registration form. Other information may also be collected through this site in the form of questionnaires, feedback forms, or other means to enable the site owner to determine user interests and needs and thus enhance the usefulness of the site.

You are assured of the strict confidentiality of the information you provide through this site and its related services. The site owner shall not by itself or on its own transfer your information to other parties unless it is subject to a legal order issued by a duly constituted authority according to applicable laws and regulations. This guarantee of privacy, however, does not cover any possible security breaches or intrusions into the networks or servers containing your data.

Use of Information

The Embassy is committed to ensuring that any personal information received pursuant to the citizen registration process, whether submitted in person, online or any other means, is safeguarded against unauthorized disclosure to third parties without permission from the individual concerned, unless such disclosure is necessary and permitted under the laws of the Philippines, or ordered by a duly constituted authority.

Furthermore, information provided under the citizen registration process will be used primarily for the purpose of communicating and coordinating with Filipino citizens in the event of an emergency, natural disaster, or other crisis that may require immediate action and evacuation. The information provided through the citizen registration process may also be made available to concerned authorities, including national, provincial, local, and foreign, with whom the Embassy and the Department of Foreign Affairs need to coordinate so that prompt emergency assistance may be provided to registered Filipino citizens. Finally, the Embassy may also provide access to information received as part of the citizen registration process to private Filipino citizens designated as volunteer community emergency coordinators so that they can effectively disseminate information during a critical incident.
