Effective Date: June 2017
If you have an unresolved privacy or data use concern that we have not addressed satisfactorily, please contact our office: .
If you make a donation, either online or otherwise, we will request certain personally identifiable information about you (such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, and credit card information). This information enables us to process your donation and communicate with you about it. In addition, we may use such information to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, keep you updated about our work, analyze website usage, and improve our website's content, layout, and services.
We may receive information about you from other sources, including publicly available databases or third parties whom have processed your donation(s), and combine this data with information we already have about you. This helps us to update, expand and analyze our records, identify new supporters, and provide information that may be of interest to you. If you provide us personal information about others, or if others give us your information, we will only use that information for the specific reason for which it was provided to us.
Security measures are in place to protect personal information that is collected. Checks are scanned to the bank and then shredded, donor information is added to an online secure database that is only used by a small group of designated employees and volunteers who have been screened and had a background check. Other donor information like event ticket sales are stored in a secured location with a double locked door system to access these records.
Sharing with Third Parties
We do not sell or share email addresses, postal addresses or telephone numbers of our donors or other individuals on our mailing list. This site may be listed on other websites whose privacy policies may differ from ours. World Medical Relief is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these other websites.
Through our site or otherwise, you may decide to submit personally identifiable information (such as your name, postal address and email address) for purposes other than donating (such as receiving an email newsletter or further information as to a particular topic). We collect and store this information and use it for the purposes for which you submitted it. In addition, we may use such information to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, keep you updated about our work, analyze website usage, and improve our website's content, layout, and services. We do not share this information with any third parties except those that assist us with certain functions, as described above.
In connection with seeking employment or a volunteer position with World Medical Relief, you may decide to submit, through our site or otherwise, personally identifiable information (including your name, address, telephone number, email address and any other personally identifiable information requested on our online and offline forms, as well as an electronic or paper copy of your resume/CV). All information entered into any online or offline forms related to employment or volunteering is strictly private, and will be viewed only by World Medical Relief for human resources purposes. No information stored or submitted in such forms will be used for any purpose other than to assess your qualifications as an employee or volunteer for World Medical Relief.
Please be advised that we may disclose your personal information to the government or to third parties pursuant to law enforcement inquiries, court orders, subpoenas and similar requests, or when we otherwise believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary or appropriate in connection with any activity that violates the law or may expose us to liability.
When you send personal information to us by submitting an online form on our site, the information you transmit to us travels by high-grade encryption using the https protocol. We also require that the companies we work with to process your online donation payments use high-grade encryption and security protocols, and that all vendors processing check and credit card transactions received on our behalf meet all industry standards. The personal information that you provide is stored in a secure location and accessible only by designated employees trained in the proper handling of customer information. We employ industry standard techniques such as firewalls, encryption, intrusion detection, and site monitoring to protect your personally identifiable information from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the organization. You should be aware, however, that "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet; third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. If you have any questions about the security of your personal information, you can contact us at 313-866-5333. We may retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed.
