The Daughters For Life Foundation (“DFL”) is committed to protecting the privacy of our donors, volunteers and others who may be involved in our activities or on our website. We value your trust, and are committed to maintaining the confidentiality of your personal information. We recognize that maintaining this trust requires that we be open and accountable in how we treat the Personal information that you choose to share with us. We do not trade, rent or sell the names of our valued supporters.
We have prepared this policy statement as a statement of the principles and guidelines we have put in place to protect your privacy, inform you of our practices concerning the collection, use, and disclosure of information provided to us, and our commitment to you to protect the privacy of the Personal information that you have entrusted to us.
What Personal Information Do We Collect?
“Personal information” is any information that can be used to distinguish, identify or contact a specific individual. We only collect information which you provide voluntarily to us through secured online donations, emails, over the phone and so on. This information includes whether an individual has donated to The Daughters For Life Foundation, how much has been donated and an individual’s private contact information. Business contact information and certain publicly available information, such as names, addresses and telephone numbers that are published in telephone directories, is not considered Personal information.
Why Do We Collect Personal Information?
Collecting information helps us to serve you better. DFL collects Personal information for fundraising, the processing and administration of donations, providing information about the activities of DFL, compliance with legal and regulatory requirements and to ask for your support in our mission to advance the health and education of girls and women in the Middle East. If at any time you wish to be excluded from such contacts, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone us at +1 416-630-0246 and we will accommodate your request.
DFL collects, uses and discloses your Personal information with your permission. Your permission may be given orally, electronically or in writing and may be expressly given or implied. In deciding how we obtain your consent, we will take into account the sensitivity of the personal information about you that we are collecting, using or disclosing. You may limit or opt-out of future contact by DFL by contacting us at email@example.com
We limit the use, disclosure and retention of Personal Information
Personal information will not be used or disclosed for purposes other than those for which it was collected, except with consent or as required by law. Personal information will be retained only as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes. DFL does not trade, rent or sell any Personal information to third parties.
We keep the Personal information that you provide to us in strict confidence. Our employees and contractors sign confidentiality agreements. We take all reasonable steps to ensure the security and accuracy of the information we have about you. When we chose to have certain services (such as some fundraising and processing services) provided by third party providers, we select the service providers very carefully. We take all reasonable precautions to ensure that the service provider protects your Personal information.
DFL’s web pages contain online forms that allow visitors to make a donation. The personal and credit card information provided on these forms is used only to process these donations. Online donations to DFL may be processed through a third party. By using a professional and secure payment service for online donations, we are better able to protect the privacy of your Personal information. Secure Socket Layer (“SS:”) encryption technology is used when making online donations.
We safeguard your Personal Information
Your Personal information is protected with security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information. We use password protocols and secure websites to protect Personal information we receive when an online donation is made.
Privacy on our website
Like many other organizations, DFL may use ‘cookies’ in special areas of our website to collect information such as the type of internet browser and operating system the visitor uses, the domain name of the website from which the visitor came, date and duration of the visit, number of visits, average times spent on our website, pages viewed and number of cookies accumulated. A cookie is a small text file that identifies the visitors browser, but not necessarily the visitor to our computer each time our website is visited. We may also use this website information and share it with other organizations with whom we have a commercial relationship to measure the use of our website to improve the function and content of the website and to improve use by visitors.
Promotional information about our activities, events and fund raising campaigns
Occasionally we may send email communications to you with information about our activities, events and fund raising campaigns. We will include instructions on how to unsubscribe and inform us of preferences if you decide you do not want to receive such further emails from us.
Our website may contain links to other websites which are provided as a convenience only. Visitors are advised that other third party websites may have different privacy policies and practices than DFL and DFL has no responsibility for such third party websites.
