QVS WEBSITE PRIVACY NOTICE
At Quaker Voluntary Service (“QVS”), we respect the privacy of the QVS website (the “Site”) visitors. We use information you provide on the Site to better serve you, but we recognize that this information belongs to you and we must treat it accordingly.
What Information Does QVS Collect About Site Visitors?
We collect two types of information about our Site visitors: personal information and non-personal information. Personal information that can identify a visitor, such as name, email address or contact information, is collected only when voluntarily offered and solely for the purposes that are clearly identified on the Site. We will take appropriate measures to protect the personal information provided by and collected from you on the Site in connection with the functions, products, services and information offered on the Site (the “QVS Services”).
Non-personal information may be collected to track statistical information about visitors to the Site in order to guide our efforts to improve the Site. Such non-personal information can include browser type, operating system, areas of the Site visited and date/time of visit.
We may also use “cookies” to obtain non-personal information when your web browser accesses this website. A cookie is an alphanumeric identifier, which we transfer to your computer via your web browser and store on your computer’s hard drive. On most web browsers you will find a “help” section on the toolbar that provides information about cookies. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie, and how to turn cookies off.
What Choices Do I Have About the Information I Share With QVS?
You can always choose not to provide information; however, doing so may prevent you from making a donation or accessing other valuable features of the Site.
Does QVS Share the Information It Receives?
We are not in the business of selling information about our Site visitors. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you and we treat it with care and respect. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your data with certain third parties. We will share personal information with third parties when (i) you expressly authorize us to share it, (ii) the third-party is performing a function on behalf of QVS that is directly related to the operation of the Site or to a service or information provided on the Site, and access to such information is necessary to the performance of such function or to the provision of such services or information being provided, or (iii) we are required to by law to do so.
