Our Commitment to Privacy
What Information is Collected by IHF?
We collect personal information when you voluntarily submit it to us.
For example, donors may provide us with personal information (such as name, address, email address, telephone numbers and/or credit/debit card information).
If a donor, or a website visitor, contacts us by email they may provide us with their email address, and name. Providing data is required in these contexts in order for us to process your donations, requests, or respond to inquiries.
In addition to the personal information that you submit to us, we may collect personal information about you from reputable third parties. Our web servers may collect certain information such as IP address, pages visited, time of visits, and referring website.
Where Do We Transfer and Store Information?
IHF is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit based in the United States, and any information transmitted to us may be stored, accessed, or processed in the United States. Residents of some other countries, including residents of the European Union, should be aware that the laws of the United States do not offer the same protections as the laws of your home country.
How Do We Use Information?
We collect information primarily to accept donations, complete our charitable work, and provide you with information concerning our programs, projects, 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. For example, if you apply for a volunteer position we may collect information in order to process your volunteer application.
With Whom Do We Share Information?
We do not trade, share, or sell information that you provide to us with other organisations 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, in conjunction with your sponsorship of a certain project, 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. We may also share your information with companies that provide us with services, or with a successor legal entity.
Our Commitment to Data Security
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. For example, we may use industry accepted tools and techniques such as SSL and two-factor authentication to protect against unauthorized access to our systems.
Access to Data, and Your Choices
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 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 addresses at the end of this policy.
Some web browsers and devices permit you to broadcast a preference that you not be "tracked" online. At this time we do not modify your experience based upon whether such a signal is broadcast.
Behavioral Advertising. We may participate in behavioral-based advertising. This means that a third party may use technology (e.g., a cookie) to collect information about your use of our website so that they can provide advertising about products and services tailored to your interest. That advertising may appear either on our website, or on other websites.
Communicating with us. If we need, or are required to, contact you about the privacy or security of your information we may do so by telephone, email, or mail.
If you have any questions, concerns, requests, or comments about privacy, you can contact us by email at:
