Nurturing Minds understands that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate you trust that we will do so with the utmost care. We take your privacy seriously and are committed to protecting your personal information.
Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We collect various types of information, including standard web server traffic pattern information. Standard web server traffic pattern information is comprised of general traffic, site usage, and length of stay information which is collected and stored in log files. We also collect your information through our registration forms and when you make a donation via our website. This may include your name, email address, format preference (HTML vs. Text), mailing address, phone numbers, interests, and similar information.
We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us or to personalize communications to you to keep you informed about our programs and progress and to match donor records and improve our services. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone. Moreover, we will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g., to ship an order. We also may share limited donor information with our Tanzanian partner, the SEGA Girls School, such as name and address information in connection with our student sponsorship program.
Visitors to our website who make monetary contributions through our website are asked to provide information such as a name and address, which is kept on a proprietary database. We do not store your credit card numbers.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
