Normal website usage:
KiTs for the World has a strong commitment to internet privacy. You can visit most portions of charitynavigator.org without telling us who you are and without revealing any personal information. The only information we collect from a normal web site visit is the name of your internet service provider, the browser and type of machine you are using, the web site that referred you to us, the pages you request and the date and time you request them. We use this information to generate statistics and measure site activity to improve the usefulness of the KiTs for the World site to our visitors.
Collection of personally identifiable information:
KiTs for the World may collect email addresses and other personally identifiable data about visitors when such data is voluntarily submitted to kitsfortheworld.org. For example, our site uses information collection forms for visitors to request information, sign up for the My Charities section, or to subscribe to our free newsletter. Contact information from these sign-up forms is used to send information and data about KiTs for the World to our visitors. We never request financial information from any of our visitors.
To become a registered user of the KiTs for the World site, we require registration of personal information. We use this information to make this function more effective and provide participants with additional information about charitable issues. All such information is collected and stored in a manner appropriate to the nature of the data.
KiTs for the World makes every effort to insure the secure collection and transmission of sensitive user information using industry accepted data collection and encryption methodologies.
Except as follows, KiTs for the World does not sell or otherwise disclose user information outside the organization. This policy has one exception: we do ask that charities we rate become registered users of our site, and we do sell charity contact information to third party vendors. Otherwise, we do not sell or exchange your information with any other organization, public, private, or non-profit.
