What information does FundELG Africa collect from me as an end user?
You can browse our Sites without telling us who you are or giving us any personally identifiable information about yourself. When you interact with us through your computer, our Site does record certain non-identifying site usage data, such as the number of hits and visits to our Site.
In order to tailor the information on this Site to your specific needs, you may, at your sole discretion, elect to complete a profile or register with FundELG Africa in order to purchase products, make donations or participate in events on-line.
If you elect to complete a profile or register with FundELG Africa, you will be asked to provide personally identifiable information that may include among other things your name, address, age, gender, e-mail address, phone-number, fax number, date of birth, and other general and/or information (collectively referred to as “Profile Information”). Once you provide us with this information you are no longer anonymous to us.
Our Sites employ “cookies,” which are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser. We employ “cookies” to perform three functions: to let us know how long you are logged on to our Site and to automatically log you out if you are inactive for over thirty minutes; to store your user ID and password so that when you return to our Site you won’t have to re-enter some or all of that information; and to provide us with statistics regarding what pages of our Site you visited, and how long you spent there. You may configure your browser to accept all “cookies,” reject all “cookies,” or notify you when a “cookie” is sent. However, when accessing an area that requires a password for entry, “cookies” are not optional and continued paths through the password area will not continue if cookies are not enabled.
How does FundELG Africa use my information?
FundELG Africa does occasionally share your name and address with affiliated organisations with whom FundELG Africa has a common interest.
FundELG Africa also employs persons and entities to perform functions on our behalf, such as fulfilling merchandise orders, sending mail and email, or helping with the maintenance or set up of our servers or computers, providing online analytics or assessing web site effectiveness with A/B testing. Such persons or entities have access to your personally identifiable information needed to perform their functions, but are contractually prohibited from using such information for any other purposes.
When you register with the Site, you become a registered user with password access and we use your Profile Information to verify your identity, and help us provide you with information that is of the most interest to you. Such Profile Information is also compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis that does not reveal your personal identity and is also considered “Aggregated Data”. In addition, you may from time to time be provided with or given the opportunity to obtain additional information of interest, updates, surveys, bulletins or other communications from FundELG Africa or its partners (“Communications”) via e-mail. You may select to opt out of future Communications by following the opt-out provision below.
If you choose to make a donation to FundELG Africa , we will use your information only for this transaction.
If you send emails through this Site, we will use the personally identifiable information you submit in conjunction with such email as necessary to send the email.
How does the FundELG Africa protect my Information?
FundELG Africa and/or its subcontractors institute various electronic and administrative safeguards that are reasonably designed to protect your personally identifiable information from unauthorized access, including firewall technologies to help protect your data from hackers and other unwanted visitors. Also, access to the Profile Information contained in your account is protected by use of a password, so you should keep your password private and secure. Despite use of these safeguards, there are inherent risks in transmission of electronic information. We cannot guarantee and do not represent that your personally identifiable information will always be secure from unauthorized access.
We also may use a managed hosting provider and/or other subcontractors to assist us with the provision and maintenance of the Site. If we do, we will impose on such provider confidentiality obligations for the treatment of information.
Can I opt-out of receiving Communications?
To remove your personally identifiable information from our database so that you do not receive further Communications, you can log into your account and change your preferences in your Profile Information. The opportunity to opt-out will be available for at least 30 days after receiving Communication from FundELG Africa. Requests filed in a timely manner will be processed within 10 days. Please note that under exigent circumstances, we may be required to send you information about the Site or your account.
