Africa Revolution’s U.S. Web Privacy Policy

Africa Revolution is committed to donor privacy.

We respect your privacy and do not rent, sell, or exchange our mailing lists.

What does this mean?

We value your trust and assure you that we will always strive to be responsible in our management, truthful in our advertising, and cost-effective in our fundraising.

We are committed to the highest standard of stewardship excellence. We will make every effort to honor any designation or preference you have stated. In certain circumstances, where a project is overfunded or cannot be carried out in accordance with your preference, the funds will be used for similar projects approved by the Board of Directors.

In some cases, our site uses securely encrypted contribution response forms for visitors who choose to use these forms to provide information, request information, and make donations. We collect your willingly submitted contact information (such as your email address), unique identifiers (in some cases, an Africa Revolution donor designation number), and financial information (such as a credit card type, number, and expiration date). Contact information from these response forms is used to process donations, as well as to provide receipts and other information about Africa Revolution to our supporters. The visitor’s contact information is also used to get in touch with the visitor when necessary in order to resolve customer service issues or questions. Users may readily opt out of receiving future communications; see the ”opt out” and ”modifying your information” sections below. Financial information that is collected is used to bill the user for donations pledged. Unique identifiers (such as an Africa Revolution designation number) may be collected from website visitors to assist in matching current donation information with donor history in our record systems.

Those who choose to register through various “guestbook”-type features on our site may choose to give us certain contact information (such as their email address). These features may also request optional demographic information (such as zip code, age, or income level). Unless you opt out, we may use this contact information to send you additional information about Africa Revolution and its programs. Your voluntarily provided contact information may also be used to contact you when necessary in order to resolve customer service issues or questions. You may readily opt out of receiving future communications; see the ”opt out” and ”modifying your information” sections below.

Our online surveys may ask visitors for contact information (such as their email address) as well as a variety of demographic and practical questions. We may use contact data from our surveys to send the user information about Africa Revolution. The user’s contact information may also be used to contact the visitor when necessary. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the ”opt out” and ”modifying your information” sections below.

Opt-Out

Most of our communications provide users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us at the point where we request contact information about the visitor. There are, however, a few places where users do not have the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications. Should you wish to opt-out, contact us and we will unsubscribe you from receiving further communications from us.

Users may also opt-out at any time by contacting us following the methods provided in the ”modifying your information” section below.
