Information We Collect
Cookies Information: When you visit the Site, we may send one or more cookies – a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser and lets Global Healing help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the site. A cookie may also convey information about how you browse the Site to us. A cookie does not collect personal information about you. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser’s directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features of the Site may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.
Log File Information: Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you access a web page. When you use the Site, our servers automatically record certain log file information. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Site, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information.
Clear Gifs Information: When you use the Site, we may employ clear gifs (also known as web beacons) which are used to track the online usage patterns of our users anonymously. In addition, we may also use clear gifs in HTML-based emails sent to our users to track which emails are opened by recipients. The information is used to enable more accurate reporting, improve the effectiveness of our marketing, and make Global Healing better for our users.
How We Use Your Information
We use the personal information you submit to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Site.
By providing Global Healing with your email address you consent to our using the email address to send you Site-related notices, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. We may use your email address to send you other messages, such as newsletters, special offers, Global Healing updates, or donation solicitations. If you do not want to receive such email messages, you may opt out or change your preferences by following the opt-out instructions included in the e-mail or by sending a message to [email protected]. Opting out may prevent you from receiving email messages regarding updates, improvements, or offers. You may not opt out of Site-related e-mails.
Global Healing may use certain information about you internally for purposes such as analyzing how the Site is used, diagnosing service or technical problems, maintaining security, and personalizing content.
Global Healing uses and/or stores your financial information only for so long as is necessary to process, charge, and/or collect your donation. We may, however, use any personal contact information you supply to send you messages, such as newsletters, special offers, Global Healing updates, or donation solicitations. You may opt out or change your contact preferences by following the opt-out instructions included in the e-mail or by sending a message to [email protected].
How We Share Your Information
As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, email, and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions.
From time to time, we may run contests, special offers, or other events or activities (“Events”) on the Site together with a third party partner. If you provide information to such third parties, you give them permission to use it for the purpose of that Event and any other use that you approve. We cannot control third parties’ use of your information. If you do not want your information to be collected by or shared with a third party, you can choose not to participate in these Events.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information: We may share non-personally identifiable information (such as anonymous usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third parties to help them understand the usage patterns for certain Global Healing services.
How We Protect Your Information
Global Healing cares about the integrity and security of your personal and financial information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Global Healing or a third-party payment processor (for example, PayPal) or guarantee that your information on the Site or third-party service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
Compromise of Personal Information
Your Choices About Your Information
You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through the Site, in which case Global Healing may not be able to provide certain services to you. You may update or correct your account information and email preferences at any time, or review and correct the information about you that Global Healing keeps on file, by contacting us directly at [email protected].
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, Global Healing does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13. If you are under 13, please do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 is allowed to provide any personal information to or on Global Healing. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at [email protected].
