When you visit our website, we may collect certain information such as browser type, operating system, website visited immediately before coming to our site, etc. This information is used to analyse how people use our site so we can improve our service.
The Em Effect wants to ensure that all of our supporters can donate and sponsor online with complete confidence. We have taken every possible measure to give absolute security to you in your dealings with us.
Third Party Sites
Our site has links to other websites not owned or controlled by us. We are not responsible for these sites or the consequences of you going on to those sites.
This website is enabled for online donations using a secure donation server certified as a secure by Everyday hero. However, despite the security on the site, you should be aware that there are inherent risks in transferring information across the Internet.
When an Internet donation is made, your credit card number is used only to make a debit through PayPal.
We record on our fundraising database the Internet donor's name, address, email, telephone, amount donated, and if the funds are for a specified gift. Our fundraising database is protected by secure user IDs and passwords, to help protect it from misuse, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
When making a donation on the Internet, you are given the option (in wording of equal size to all other information requested) to untick a box to opt out of receiving future mailing. If this is not changed you may receive fund-raising material from The Em Effect and your email address will be added to our email database. You may remove your name from this database at anytime, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
