The National Defense College of the Philippines (NDCP) has a commitment to the accessibility and functionality of the website content for its users. This commitment takes the form of a constantly evolving service of improving accessibility for our community of users.
When you visit NDCP website, the site can automatically collect information about your visit. When you browse through our site, read pages there, or download information, we collect certain information to measure how many visitors come to the different parts of the site so we can make the site more useful.
Example: We use browser information to help us design our site so the greatest number of people can view the pages correctly.
For every visitor, we collect and temporarily store the following information:
Your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address.
The domain from which you access the Internet.
The website address from which you came to our site.
The date and time you arrived at our site and how long you spent there.
The name and version of your computer’s operating system and browser.
The pages you visited.
We use this information to improve our website and provide a better experience for our visitors. We use tools, Google Analytics, to aggregate this information. The information is available only to our web managers and staff who require this information to perform their duties. It is retained only for as long as needed for analysis purposes.
NDCP will not disclose, give, sell, or transfer any personally identifiable information (PII) about our visitors unless it is required:
By law or regulation.
For law enforcement reasons.
We may use PII to respond to you, in which case various people may need to see the information you provide in order to provide a response to you. If enough questions or comments come in that are the same, your question (but not your name) may be added to our Questions and Answers section. We use this information to help us improve our site.
We may enter information you send into an electronic database to share with attorneys or investigators involved in law enforcement or policy-making.
In other limited circumstances, including requests from Congress or private individuals, we may be required by law to disclose information you submit.
Unless otherwise noted, the contents of the NDCP website (www.ndcp.edu.ph) — both text and graphics — are not copyrighted. They are in the public domain and may be republished, reprinted and otherwise used freely by anyone without the need to obtain permission from NDCP. Credit to the NDCP as the source is appreciated but not required.
People are also free to link to any URL on NDCP’s site. NDCP’s preference is that people link to the material on the NDCP site (rather than copying it to their personal websites) because the agency continuously updates the information on the website as better information becomes available. A person copying documents to another website, instead of linking to them, would then have to monitor the original documents to know when these documents were updated by NDCP or else risk giving bad or incorrect advice to visitors to their website.
If a person, nonetheless, decides to copy content or images, NDCP strongly recommends that the copied item lists the date that the material was copied and provides a link back to its source on the NDCP website. Users can then see for themselves if the copied material has been updated or changed.
NDCP appreciates being informed about the use of website materials. Please email us at ICTO@ndcp.edu.ph.
For site security purposes and to ensure that the site remains available to all users, we employ software programs that monitor traffic and identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. In the event of authorized law enforcement investigations, and pursuant to any required legal process, information from these sources may be used to help identify an individual.
