Who we are

Our website address is


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.


 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.

The Services, unless otherwise noted, are for your personal and non-commercial use only. Any information, goods, or services accessed through the Services may not be modified, copied, distributed, transmitted, displayed, performed, reproduced, licensed, created derivative works from, transferred, or sold.


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.

We may use cookies to assess the efficacy of our email communications and to better adapt email content in order to improve subscribers’ experiences and the overall quality of our services. We may, for example, link data indicating that a subscriber clicked a link in an email to a future action made by that user on the GIPC Ghana website, such as filling out a web form.

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.

Who we share your data with

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

When we ask for personal information, you have the option to reject it. Many of our products need the collection of personal information in order to provide you with a service. You cannot utilize a product or service if you refuse to supply the data necessary to deliver it to you. Similarly, if we are required by law or to engage into or carry out a contract with you and you fail to give the data, we will be unable to enter into the contract; or, if this applies to an existing product you are using, we may be forced to suspend or terminate it.

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 you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

We also utilize data to run our business, which includes assessing performance, satisfying regulatory requirements, growing our personnel, and doing research. We use both automatic and manual (human) techniques to process personal data for these purposes.
