Women for Women International (WfWI) has a firm commitment to protecting your privacy. The following statement explains our policy in regard to the collection and use of any personal information you may give us as you use the U.S. WfWI website located at www.womenforwomen.org (the Web Site) or any of the services provided therein (collectively the Service).
You may choose to provide us with personal information in a variety of situations. The Website may offer you the possibility to contact WfWI with any questions or comments or to make donations to WfWI through third-party websites. In this respect, you may choose to provide some personal information to WfWI. The type of personal information that WfWI may collect includes first name, last name, email address, postal address, date of birth, phone number, gender, and country of residence. In addition, you may choose to provide credit card (or bank) details to our payments processor in connection with a donation to WfWI, or may provide a description of your education and work experience in connection with a job opening at WfWI for which you wish to be considered.
In addition, we collect information about our users that cannot be used to personally identify you. This information may include the web site's Uniform Resource Locator (URL) that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (IP) address. We collect this non-personal information to help diagnose problems with our server and the Web Site, to administer and improve the Service and to understand the special interests and individual habits of our users so that we can personalize the services we make available to you.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on The Website. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. A "cookie" primarily stores information concerning your visits and preferences as to your browsing on the WfWI Sites, so you do not have to re-enter your settings when you come back to the WfWI Sites.
In the course of our business we may use your personal identifying information to generally communicate with you, handle and deliver purchase orders, process payments or donations, and otherwise provide other Services to you. In addition, we may share such data with our affiliates or business partners who are bound by privacy policies similar to this one and any agents we use to perform any aspect of the Service (i.e. using a third party provider to process transactions) who will only be permitted to use such information for such aspect of the Service. However, they are not authorized by WfWI to use such information for any other purpose or transfer it to anyone else.
WfWI implements reasonable physical, administrative and technical safeguards to help us protect your personal information under our control from unauthorized access, use and disclosure. Among other things, we use technologies and processes such as encryption, access controls, network firewalls, physical security and other measures to protect your personal information. In addition, when we work with other companies to process credit card transactions, those companies also use encryption and other security measures.
WfWI will retain your personal information for as long as needed to provide you services. If you wish to request that we no longer use your information to provide you services, you may contact us at email@example.com. In addition, we will retain your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.
If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive marketing communications from WfWI (e.g. newsletters or promotional emails), you may opt out by clicking on a link in the email you receive or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may review, update, correct or delete your personal information, elect not to receive future communications from third parties, elect and/or choose to no longer receive the Service by contacting us at email@example.com. This e-mail must include your full name, address and contact information in the request in order to allow us to verify your identity. Please note that if you request the deletion of your personal information, we may retain an archived copy of your records as required by law or for legitimate business purposes.
The Web Site is not directed toward or designed for the use by persons aged 13 and under. WfWI will not approve applications of, or establish or maintain accounts or memberships for, any child whom WfWI knows to be age 13 or under. WfWI does not solicit or knowingly collect personal information from children 13 and under if consent has not been given or authorized from a parent or custodian. If you are a parent or custodian of a child aged 13 or under and you believe WfWI has collected any personal data from or about your child, please contact WfWI at firstname.lastname@example.org.
