WHO WE ARE

This website www.educationafrica.org (“our site”) is operated by Education Africa (“we” or “us”). Further details are set out in our Website Terms and Conditions http://educationafrica.org/terms-and-conditions/

PURPOSE OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY

We are committed to the privacy and confidentiality of information provided to us. This privacy policy describes our current policies and practices with regard to any personal information or data collected by us from you directly and/or through our site.

Personal information or data means information which identifies you, and includes information such as your name, email address, telephone number and password, as well as any other personal information or data collected.

NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES TO PRIVACY POLICY

We are continually improving our methods of communication and adding new functionality and features to our site and to our existing or future services. Because of these ongoing changes, changes in the law and the changing nature of technology, our data protection practices will change from time to time. If and when our data protection practices change, we will update this privacy policy to describe our new practices. We encourage you to check this page regularly.

COLLECTION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION OR DATA

We collect the following information about our donors:

OUR USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION OR DATA

We will only use your personal information or data to fulfil your requests for information, to send you marketing material, information on our projects or activities, or information about donations which we believe would be of interest to you, and to manage your account with us, and for any related purposes. We will only process personal information or data that is adequate, relevant and not excessive for those purposes. Where we send you information for any purpose, it may be sent by e-mail or post. When we ask you for personal information or data it may include the following purposes:

UNSUBSCRIBE

If you no longer wish to receive e-mails from us and want to be removed from our mailing list, please e-mail us at the address unsubscribe@educationafrica.org with “Email Unsubscribe” in the subject heading.

You may also wish to write to us to give us feedback at webmaster@educationafrica.org.

If you choose to unsubscribe from our mailing lists, we will hold your contact details on file marked so that we do not contact you again. This is so that we do not contact you if your details are subsequently provided to us by a third party.

ANONYMOUS DATA COLLECTED THROUGH OUR SITE

In addition to the information we collect as described above, we use technology to collect anonymous information about the use of our site. For example, our web server automatically logs which pages of our site our visitors view, their IP addresses and which web browsers our visitors use. This technology does not identify you personally; it simply enables us to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of our site.

Our site contains links to other pages on our site. We may use technology to track how often these links are used and which pages on our site our visitors choose to view. Again this technology does not identify you personally – it simply enables us to compile statistics about the use of these links.

Likewise, if you reached our site by clicking on a link or advertisement on another site, we also log that information. This assists us to maximize our Internet exposure as well as understand the interests of our users. All of this information is collected and used only in the aggregate: it is entered into our database, where we can use it to generate overall reports on our visitors, but not reports about individual visitors.

COOKIES

In order to collect the anonymous data described in the preceding paragraph, we may use temporary “cookies” that remain in the cookies file of your browser until the browser is closed.

Cookies are small, often encrypted text files, located in browser directories. They help users navigate websites efficiently and allow certain functions, such as buying products online. When you visit websites, cookies may be stored on your computer. They are used to store a variety of information about you and your preferences, which is afterwards sent back to the visited website.

Cookies by themselves cannot be used to discover your identity. Cookies do not damage your computer. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie. This enables you to decide if you want to accept it or not. If you choose not to accept cookies from our site this may limit its functionalities or performance.

Our use of cookies is to enable more user-friendly, efficient and safe visits to our site. We use cookies for several reasons:

Besides these, we may also use cookies which enable us to save your preferences from each of your visits to our site and present you with a version of our site which reflects your preferences. Our system is therefore able to recognize you each time you visit our site, without requiring you to systematically log in each time you visit.

You can find more information about cookies at: http://www.allaboutcookies.org/ and for a video about cookies visit http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/cookies/.

We also use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our site and to gather broad demographic information.

We may also perform IP lookups to determine which domain you are coming from (i.e. aol.com, yourcompany.com) to more accurately gauge our users’ demographics.

DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION OR DATA

We do not share, sell or distribute your personal information or data with unrelated third parties, except as otherwise provided for in this privacy policy and under these limited circumstances:

Where you have consented, we may share your personal information or data with other organisations or companies whose activities, products and/or services may be of interest to you. Where appropriate, before disclosing personal information or data to a third party, we contractually require the third party to take adequate precautions to protect that data and to comply with applicable law.

In the event of a merger/acquisition or reorganisation, your personal information or data may be part of the transferred assets and is likely to be disclosed to the new organisation.

ACCESS AND CORRECTIONS TO PERSONAL INFORMATION OR DATA

Upon receipt of your written request and enough information to permit us to identify your personal information or data, we will disclose to you the personal information or data we hold about you, for which we may make a charge as allowed by applicable law.

We will also correct, amend or delete any personal information or data that you tell us is inaccurate and notify any third party recipients of the necessary changes. You may update any information you have given to us by contacting us at our registered address or email address: webmaster@educationafrica.org.

Requests to delete personal information or data are subject to any applicable legal and ethical reporting or document retention obligations imposed on us.

UNAUTHORISED THIRD PARTY ACCESS TO YOUR INFORMATION

Despite the security measures we have in place to protect your personal information or data, you acknowledge that your personal information stored by us may be accessed by unauthorised third party, e.g. as a result of an illegal activity.

In the unlikely event of such access by an unauthorised third party, we will use our best endeavours to notify you via email (using the address you have provided to us, if any) of such occurrence.

LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES

Our site may contain links to sites that are not operated by us. These links are provided for your reference and convenience only and do not imply any endorsement of the activities of these third party websites or any association with their operators. We do not control these websites and are not responsible for their data or privacy practices. We urge you to review any privacy policy posted on any site you visit before using the site or providing any personal information or data about yourself and others.

TRANSFER OF DATA ABROAD

If you are visiting or site site from a country other than the country in which our servers are located (currently the United States of America), the various communications will necessarily result in the transfer of information across international boundaries.

By visiting our site and communicating electronically with us, you consent to the processing and transfer of your personal information or data as set out in this privacy policy.

We may also transfer your personal information or data to other countries, in which case we will comply with any relevant data protection laws.
