In this policy, you will learn how we use your information.
At World Villages for Children, we take the privacy of our donors very seriously.
Personal information of donors acquired by World Villages for Children is never sold. Personal information acquired through our website, advertisements, events, and fundraising initiatives not related to direct mail is never rented or exchanged. Furthermore, any information acquired via prayer requests, and shared through phone conversations with our staff or planned giving specialists, is never shared with anyone outside of our organization and will be held in the strictest confidence.
Personal information of our donors acquired from mailing lists already in circulation is occasionally rented to or exchanged with other organizations. We only rent or exchange lists we maintain with other third parties we believe engage in activities that are consistent with the mission and core beliefs of World Villages for Children. If a person becomes a donor of World Villages for Children in response to a mailing of ours, the request to have their name excluded from rental or exchange should be submitted in writing, either by email or by mail to our business office: World Villages for Children, 4200 Parliament Place, Suite 230, Lanham, MD 20706.
WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED ON OUR WEBSITE
Our online donation form requires donors to give us contact information that may include name, email address, address, interests, and other contact and preference information. We do not request or store sensitive information from our visitors, such as Social Security numbers.
All information provided to World Villages for Children is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our site that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of World Villages for Children.
INTERNET PROTOCOL ADDRESS
We collect an IP address from all visitors to our site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our site, analyze trends, gather broad demographic information and deliver personalized contents. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
USE OF “COOKIES”
