We do not collect personally identifiable information from individuals unless they provide it to us voluntarily. This means we do not require you to provide information to us in order to view our web sites. AmeriCares India only collects personal information that is voluntarily and knowingly provided to us by a site visitor wanting to make a donation, sign up for our mailing list, apply for employment or volunteer to work with AmeriCares India, or any party making a donation via mail, phone, in-person, or event attendance -- information that we need to respond appropriately to them. Our registration and contribution forms generally require users to give us their contact information that may include name, address, zip/postal codes, email address, format preference (HTML vs. Text), interests and similar information. This information is available to AmeriCares India and third-party service providers involved in the operation of this site or any other AmeriCares India business. Whether you provide us with your information via the site or in an offline manner, we make a effort to require all third-party service providers to hold personal information in strict confidence. While we believe these companies are upstanding, reputable members of the community of providers offering services to non-profit organizations and will treat your personal information responsibly, we do not own or control them.
We collect an IP address from all visitors to our Site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet; it tells us the domain name of each user to this Site, but not the actual email address. We use IP addresses to help us diagnose problems with our server, administer our Site, analyze trends, track users' movement, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information and are not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes at any time.
If you register on the AmeriCares India Web Site, or make an online or offline donation and supply us with your email and/or postal address you may receive periodic mailings or online communications from us with information about our current programs and activities around the world. If you do not wish to receive or would like to adjust the volume and types of communications you receive from AmeriCares India by postal mail or email, please contact us and let us know your preferences by emailing us at info@AmericaresIndia.org.
AmeriCares India does not rent, or sell your email or postal address; however we may from time to time share your name and postal address with other similar charitable non-profit organizations unless you opt-out. If you would prefer that your name not be shared with other organizations, please send us a request by email at info@AmericaresIndia.org or contact us.
The only exceptions to Opting Out where AmeriCares India could disclose personal information would involve instances required by a law or a regulatory authority. Additionally information could be disclosed in rare cases if we have reason to believe that disclosure of this information is necessary to contact and/or bring legal action against a person(s) who may be inflicting injury or interfering with AmeriCares India rights, personnel, and property, AmeriCares India web site users or anyone who could be potentially harmed by such activities, whether intended or not.
If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about the Site, we ask them for the friend's name and email address. AmeriCares India Foundation will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the Site. AmeriCares India stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email.
