Privacy of Information | Collection of Information
When you are on EFE’s website and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with EFE and its Affiliates, unless stated otherwise or required by law. EFE may collect general information regarding website visitors, including IP address, browser and domain information, and may also monitor and track information such as visitor usage patterns of our website using standard site tracking software.
We are aware of and sensitive to the issue of unsolicited email (“spam”); therefore EFE and its Affiliates will never rent, trade or sell your email address.
Personally Identifiable Information
EFE collects personal information from visitors and other supporters only when they register to join our organization, make a donation online or offline, subscribe to our e-newsletter, indicate interest in learning more about EFE, or otherwise participate in our online community. Our web server does not automatically recognize or collect personal information based on your email address. EFE provides you with the ability to unsubscribe to any email list and to request deletion of any personal information maintained by EFE or its Affiliates.
Use of Information
EFE uses the information you submit voluntarily to us to send you electronic communications such as our e-newsletter, and various printed publications or mail appeals, and to help administer and improve our website.

The accuracy of your individual information is important to EFE and its Affiliates. If you have a question about or change to your personal information related to a donation, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Protecting Personal Information
When you give EFE personal information, we take steps to ensure that your information is treated securely. EFE uses industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving sensitive visitor data (e.g., financial information) with our site. All online donations are processed via the following payment processors' secure servers; CyberSource, owned by Visa (for USD based donations,) and Stripe, owned by Wells-Fargo (for EU based donations.)
EFE never stores your credit card information for future use. EFE uses commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of any personal information on our systems, and to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information transmitted to us. Of course, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, EFE cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.

While we make efforts to choose our links carefully, we cannot take responsibility for the content of linked websites, or for the privacy policies of websites we link to.
