Types of Personal Information We Collect
Personal Information means personally identifiable information such as information you provide via forms, applications, or other online fields. This includes names, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses. Personal information also includes sensitive information you provide to us via secure channels, including the account information you provide when donating.
How the Foundation Obtains Personal Information
In most cases, you provide us with your personal data directly. We also learn about you from your use of our systems, interactions with our communications, and our other dealings with you.
Why We Process Your Personal Information
We use information you have provided to us to:
- Answer your questions
- Request your support
- Comply with legal obligations, government regulations, and reporting requirements
- Inform you about our fundraising campaigns, events, and activities
- Manage and maintain the security of our information technology systems
- Process applications and transactions, including donations and grant disbursals
In some cases, we rely on your consent as the legal basis for processing your personal information. If we do rely on your consent we will make this clear to you at the time we ask for your consent.
How We Protect Your Information
To help protect the privacy of data and personally identifiable information you transmit to the Foundation, we maintain physical, technical, and administrative safeguards. We update and test our security technology on an ongoing basis. We restrict access to your personal information to those people who need to know that information.
Our website is protected with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption. This prevents an unauthorized individual or party from simultaneously viewing the same pages that you are viewing. In addition, we maintain administrative, technical, and physical security measures such as computer safeguards and secured files and buildings to protect your personal information from unauthorized access and use.
Where the Foundation Processes Your Personal Information
The Foundation operates from the United Nations Federal Credit Union (UNFCU) headquarters in New York, USA. By providing the Foundation with your personal information, you consent to the transfer of that information to the United States for processing and storage on our data servers in the United States.
When and How We Share Information with Others
The personal information the Foundation collects from you is stored in one or more databases hosted by UNFCU or its contracted third parties located in the United States. These third parties do not use or have access to your personal information for any purpose other than cloud storage, retrieval, or to facilitate a transaction.
The Foundation does not sell or share donor lists. We sometimes share the information we collect from and about you with third parties, only to process that information in accordance with this policy. Those third parties include government regulators, external auditors, cloud-based application providers, and UNFCU.
How Long We Keep Your Personal Information
We keep your personal information for as long as is necessary for the purposes of:
- Our relationship with you or your Organization
- Performing an agreement with you or your Organization
- Complying with a legal or regulatory obligation
- Internal administrative or security needs
