At Save Sierra Leone Foundation (the “Foundation”, “us”, “we”, and “our”), we know your privacy is important to you and the Foundation is fully committed to your privacy.
WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
We gather information which enables us to personalize and improve our services. We collect the following types of information from our customers.
Personal Information You Provide To Us:
In order for you to use certain of the Site’s Services, you may be asked to provide us with certain Personal Information. Personal Information includes, without limitation: (1) “Contact Data” (such as your name, company or organization name, mailing address, and e-mail address); (2) “Financial Data” (such as your account or credit card number); and (3) “Demographic Data” (such as you zip code and age). In each case, you will be asked to provide Personal Information; the Site will not gather it surreptitiously. The Foundation may supplement the Personal Information you provide with additional Personal Information gathered from public sources or from third-parties (e.g., consumer reporting agencies) who may lawfully provide such information to us.
You are under no obligation to provide Personal Information, with the caveat that your refusal to do so may prevent you from using certain of the Site’s Services.
Information Collected Automatically:
We may receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with our Web site or services. The Foundation automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address and the page you requested.
Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our site and its components, similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show. The Foundation uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally.
What Are Cookies?
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in our Site are visited and by how many people.
HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We use information we collect to authenticate your visits and send you information and products.
If you have opted in to receiving marketing information, we use your personal information to customize and deliver that information to you.
We also use the information to manage and improve our Site. We may use your information, in aggregate form and in collaboration with outside researchers, to measure and quantify the effectiveness of our program. In our research, all the data is used in aggregate form or with your personal information removed. At no point will you be personally identifiable.
We may enhance or merge personal information with your other information and with data from third parties in order to better market and provide our products and services.
The Site may contain features, e.g. blogs, chat rooms, etc., that permit you to upload, post, transmit, display, perform or distribute content, information or other, including personal information. Any information that you choose to disclose by means of such features becomes public information over which we are unable to exercise control. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose information by means of such features, and you agree to assume all responsibility for doing so.
LIMITED DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES
Personal Information about our customers is an integral part of our business. We do not share Personal Information with unrelated third parties for their direct marketing purposes. We share your Personal Information only with our partners and affiliates as described below. We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Examples include processing credit card payments with a secure third party provider, PayPal. Unless we tell you differently, these agents do not have any right to use Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.
We also disclose Personal Information when required to do so by law, or in response to a subpoena, court order, or other legal mechanism, or when we believe, in our sole discretion, that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of the Foundation, third parties or the public at large.
IS PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT ME SECURE?
The Site has implemented and maintains reasonable security procedures and practices to protect against the unauthorized access, use, modification, destruction or disclosure of your Personal Information. For example, we use firewalls and self-updating anti-virus software.
