Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

When you make a donation online, our website uses a form to collect personally identifying information such as name, address, phone, email address and information about your donation and preferences. We do not collect credit card or any other payment information. When you submit the form, your data is securely transferred to PayPal to pre-fill address and donation amount on your checkout page, and sent by email to the GHRoW Foundation. This site does not electronically store any information – the data on the form is deleted after you submit the form.

We may use your information in the following ways: a) to confirm any details about your donation; b) to provide you with a receipt for tax purposes and/or c) with your permission, to send you our Annual Update by email.

Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about news, special events or changes to this privacy policy.

We will not share your information with any third party outside of the GHRoW Foundation, other than as necessary to fulfill your donation, e.g. PayPal to initiate the payment process. We will not sell or rent your information to anyone for any purpose.

This website does not use cookies or track visitors individually. We may use third-party tools such as Google Analytics to analyze site traffic in the aggregate.
