Privacy and Information Security
IAFR respects the privacy of all those who support our work. This includes financial donors, members of our mailing lists, visitors to the IAFR web site and IAFR associated blogs (using the iafr.org domain). All donor or prospective donor information, including names, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers or amounts of gifts, etc. will be kept confidential by IAFR and its staff, unless permission is obtained from donors to release said information.
On our website and IAFR associated blogs, we do not collect any personally identifiable information from individuals unless they provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly. This means that you are able to view our site without registering or revealing any personal information about yourself to IAFR.
IAFR will only gather personal information, such as names, addresses, emails, phone numbers, when voluntarily submitted by a visitor to our site for the purpose of requesting more information or to join a mailing list, make a donation to the work of IAFR, or to apply for an open position with IAFR.
This information is available to IAFR and other service providers involved in the operation of this website. Though we do not own or control these third-party service providers, we do require that they keep this information confidential. We strive to use companies that we believe are committed to handling personal information responsibly.
Protecting Credit Card Information
Protecting your credit card information is extremely important to us. IAFR uses Vanco Payment Solutions (www.Vancopayments.com), a PCI Level 1 Compliant Service Provider, to receive and process donations made by IAFR donors on the IAFR website. Every effort is made to ensure secure collection and transmission of sensitive information, including credit information.
Information Quality and Accuracy
IAFR makes a concerted effort to keep information secure, accurate, current, and complete. We will do our best to respond in a timely manner when notified of inaccuracies in personal information. To correct inaccurate personal information, please return the message containing the inaccuracies to the sender with details of the correction requested.
Cookies and Other Technologies
As with most other internet sites, IAFR may collect non-personal information and data from visitors to the IAFR website through the use of “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that a website uses to recognize repeat visitors, facilitate visitors ongoing access and use of the site, and allow a site to track usage behavior and compile aggregate data. This can help to improve the user experience, as well as to improve the content of the site.
Visitors can adjust their browser settings to notify them before a cookie is received, providing the opportunity to decide whether or not to accept it. Visitors can also set their browser to turn off cookies. If you do so, however, some areas of the site may not function properly.
