Welcome to the ECE Accelerator website!
The site has been created to provide you with a global toolkit to support the inclusion and strengthening of early childhood education (ECE) in the context of Education Sector Planning processes. The content of this site is for your general information and use only.
ACCESS AND USE
The site is open to and welcomes people from around the world. UNICEF aims to create an environment on the ECE Accelerator website where every person feels comfortable, no matter their nationality, gender, cultural background, religion, sexual orientation or political conviction.
You agree to use this site only for lawful purposes, and in a manner that does not infringe the rights of, or restrict or inhibit the use and enjoyment of this site by, any other party.
ACCOUNT CREATION AND SECURITY
Creating an account is optional but doing so you’ll be able to use the tools online and save your progress, and then return to it at a later time to complete it. If you choose to create an account, you will be asked to provide username and create a password. We encourage you to select a username that does not disclose your real name or other information that could identify you.
If you have any reason to believe that your account is no longer secure – if your password has been stolen, for instance – you should change your password as soon as possible. If you cannot access your account to change your password, notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

- We may share your Personal Information with third service providers to maintain and improve the site. For example, hosting providers and database providers (for data storage purposes) and other specialist information security and development providers (for enhancement of the security or other functionality of the website).
- We may also disclose your Personal Information with your permission. We may seek your permission in various ways. For example, we may present you with an “opt-in” prompt when you set up an account or access certain content.

We will never sell your Personal Information.
We may de-identify (i.e. anonymize), aggregate and share information collected through the site with third party providers for statistical analysis and other lawful purpose to help us understand the usage of the site and improve the operation of the site, including maintenance and administration.

IS THE ECE ACCELERATOR WEBSITE SECURE?
We are committed to protecting your Personal Information through the implementation of encryption methods, firewalls, regular security patches and antivirus. Unfortunately, such precautions may not be sufficient to guarantee complete security of your data. It is always a possibility that third parties may unlawfully intercept or access your Personal Information or private communications. So, although we work extremely hard to safeguard your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee that your information or communications will always remain private.
We also ask that you do your part to safeguard your Personal Information. Select and protect your password appropriately. Make sure you keep your password confidential. Limit access to your account and sign out of your account once you have finished using this site. Also, be careful about connecting to the site using an insecure Wi-Fi. Public Wi-Fi, for example, is inherently insecure — so be cautious.
