Syria Relief and Development
DONOR PRIVACY POLICY

Syria Relief and Development (SRD) respects the privacy of donors and those parties who have provided tremendous support to alleviate the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Syria. SRD has created this Donor Privacy Policy to explain why SRD collects particular information and how donor privacy will be protected through maintaining the confidentiality of all information.

I. COLLECTION OF INFORMATION

When providing personal information through the SRD website, information will be solely used by SRD, unless stated otherwise. SRD may collect information regarding website visitors, including IP addresses, browser and domain information, and email addresses. SRD may also monitor and track information such as visitor usage patterns of the SRD website using standard site tracking software to help improve the site.

II. PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION

SRD collects personal information from visitors and other supporters when they register to join the organization, make a donation (online, by phone, or mail), or sign up to become a volunteer. The SRD web server does not automatically recognize or collect personal information based on your email address; the personal information SRD collects is always voluntarily submitted by you.

III. USE OF INFORMATION

SRD uses personal information collected to provide you with access to e-newsletters and various printed publications.

IV. SHARING OF INFORMATION

SRD will not disclose personally identifiable information, except when given permission by the individual. SRD may use such information to contact people for marketing purposes. Given that SRD is funded mostly through private donations, SRD may share individual information with other reputable, charitable organizations. SRD is aware of and sensitive to the issue of unsolicited email (“spam”); therefore SRD will never rent, trade or sell your email address.

V. OPT-OUT CLAUSE

Any SRD website, event or other patron has the right to opt-out of receiving any and all communications from SRD at any time. To do so, send written notice to SRD via email at info@SyriaReliefandDevelopment.org or a letter to: [Syria Relief and Development, PO Box 25446, Overland Park, KS 66225] and inform us of your intent to unsubscribe from the communication(s) or medium/media you wish not to be contacted through any longer. SRD will honor your request and remove you from any and all contact lists you are requesting to unsubscribe from within 5 business days upon receipt of your written request.

VI. SECURITY

All online donations made to SRD are transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to SRD. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the internet is 100% secure. While SRD strives to protect your information, SRD cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information. Once SRD receives your transmission, SRD uses commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on SRD systems, and to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information that has been collected.

VII. LINKS TO THIRD PARTY-SITES

The SRD website provides links to several other third party websites. While SRD makes effort to choose SRD links carefully, SRD cannot take responsibility for the content of linked websites, or for the privacy policies of websites SRD links to. Since SRD does not control those websites, SRD encourages you to review the privacy policies on those websites prior to any use.

VIII. PRIVACY POLICY CHANGES

SRD reserves the right at any time and without notice to change this Donor Privacy Policy simply by posting such changes on the SRD site. Any such change will be effective immediately upon posting. Your continued use of the SRD website after the updates are posted will be deemed to be your agreement to the changed terms.
