We collect personal information when you voluntarily submit it to us through our website, forms, email, social media platforms and phone.
For example, users, potential volunteers and donors may provide us with personal information (such as name, address, email address, telephone numbers and/or credit/debit card information). If a user, potential volunteer, perspective partner, donor, or any other website visitor contacts us by email or WhatsApp, they may provide us with their email address, phone number and name. Providing data is required in these contexts for us to process your course enrollments, volunteer applications, donations, partnership inquiries, requests, or respond to any other inquiries.
In addition to the personal information that you submit to us, we may collect personal information about you automatically using the following technologies:
Google Adwords, Google Analytics and Google Search Console. Such information may include: pages visited, time of visits, location of website access, device used for access and referring website. Such information is purely used for the purpose of providing more relevant, user-friendly and targeted useful content as you navigate through our website.
We have safeguards in place to ensure your data is stored safely and securely. We store your data on our private, Google Cloud Platform powered Drive where it can only be accessed authorized parties.
We collect information primarily to enroll individuals with disabilities in our courses, process volunteer application requests, to accept donations, and provide you with information concerning our courses, projects, partnerships, events and activities. We also use information for analytical purposes, to improve our website, our donor base, our outreach, or to respond to requests for information. We may inform you of other purposes at the time that we collect some forms of information.
We do not trade, share, or sell information that you provide to us with other organizations or third party individuals who intend to use it only to market their products or services to you.
There may be instances in which we share your information with others. We may share your information, for example, as required by law, with law enforcement, to comply with legal process, to protect our legal rights, to protect the safety or security of a person, or to protect against fraud, criminal acts, or misconduct.
To help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect.
First, we use Google as our backend, which provides us with the security that the Google Cloud Platform offers. Secondly, we have protected the admin account with double factor authentication to minimize unauthorized access. Third, only handful of our organization members have viewing rights to this database. Fourthly, we try our best to anonymize the data captured for any analytical purposes within our organization.
If you would like to access the data that we received from you, or make corrections to it, you may contact us at the email address or WhatsApp chat provided at the end of this policy.
If you registered to receive communications from us and later change your mind, you may ask that your name and contact information be removed from our distribution list. You can send such a request to the email address or WhatsApp chat provided at the end of this policy.
If we need, or are required to, contact you about the privacy or security of your information we may do so by telephone or email or WhatsApp. If you have any questions, concerns, requests, or comments about privacy, you can contact us by email, WhatsApp, or mail at:
