Village of Promise Privacy Policy

Village of Promise places a high priority on protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy applies to information Village of Promise collects about individuals from the Village of Promise’s website and how this information is used.

Personal Data

Village of Promise collects two types of information: personal information you submit to us voluntarily and information we collect automatically when you use our Websites or Services. “Personal information” is data that can be used to uniquely identify or contact a single person. Personal information we collect may include your name, phone number, mailing address, e-mail address, and payment information, such as credit card number and expiration date. We may also collect information such as your organization’s name, your title within the organization, industry type, and 501(c)(3) status, and other business information about the organization. We may collect information from you when you use our websites, subscribe to our newsletters, or make a donation.

Village of Promise also collects non-personal information from you passively. Like most website administrators, we use log files that record information such as Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and page navigation. We gather this information to track website visitor movement in the aggregate and to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses that are recorded by our log files are not linked to personal information

How Personal Data Is Used

Village of Promise will only use your data in a manner that is appropriate considering the basis on which that data was collected as discussed above.

For example, we may use your personal information to:

  • reply to inquiries you send to us;
  • handle donations or other transactions that you initiate;
  • where you have specifically agreed to this, send you marketing communications by email relating to our work which we think may be of interest to you.

When Personal Data is Shared

Village of Promise will only pass your data to third parties in the following circumstances:

  • you have provided your explicit consent for us to pass data to a named third party;
  • we are using a third party purely for the purposes of processing data on our behalf and we have in place a data processing agreement with that third party that fulfills our legal obligations in relation to the use of third-party data processors; or
  • we are required by law to share your data.

How Long Personal Data is Stored

Village of Promise takes the principles of data minimization and removal seriously and have internal policies in place to ensure that we only ever ask for the minimum amount of data for the associated purpose and delete that data promptly once it is no longer required.
