The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology’s portal is committed to protecting the rights of visitors to this site and maintaining the confidentiality of sensitive information. This security and privacy statement aims to disclose the adopted approach in collecting information and publishing it on the Ministry’s portal.
Collection and use of electronic information
- The Ministry's servers automatically capture your IP address when you visit the site. (Your Internet Protocol address is the number of the computer you are using while it is online, which allows other devices connected to the internet to determine the destination of data, and to collect certain information; such as browser type and search engine but without personally identifying you).
- The Ministry's use of your IP helps it diagnose problems that occur in its servers, and to conduct the necessary statistics to measure the use of the site (the number of visitors and the language of the computer you are using). The Ministry does not allow any party other than the technical team of the Ministry's portal team to view your IP except in cases required by the Kingdom’s regulations.
Secure data transfer
The Ministry makes every effort to protect the data provided by the user in accordance with the best practices, and works to encrypt sensitive information and data that must be kept confidential in accordance with legal requirements.
- The Ministry may store so-called “Cookies” on your computer when you visit our site, as “Cookies” are part of the data that uniquely identifies you as a user and can be used to develop your knowledge of the portal and to better understand the portal’s user base.
Protection of Personal Information
User information will only be available to government employees who need to see it, and such information will not be available to the public without their consent, and none of that information will be exchanged, traded or sold to any third party without the user's prior consent, and access to information is only for those who provide the services of the Ministry’s portal that are consistent with the user’s interactions with the site. The concept of “personal information” in this context does not include your comments and electronic participations that you submit on the portal for the purpose of publishing or for the interactive use of services.
The right to view, modify or correct personal data
Any user who provides the Ministry with his personal information has the right to view, modify or correct his personal information, through the Ministry's portal (https://www.mcit.gov.sa), and he can also request the amendment of his personal information by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
