Data Collection and Storage
VillageReach collects personal data provided by individuals on a voluntary basis. We may collect names, organizational affiliations, email addresses, postal addresses, and phone numbers when provided by an individual. In some instances, we may collect other information such as job title, gender, and professional associations. We also receive information when an individual accesses our online content (website, newsletter, social media channels) including IP addresses, time, date, browser used, and actions taken within a site. We may receive information about which electronic mailings an individual receives, which articles are viewed, and what other actions are taken.
Personal data is stored in one of our contact management databases, which are accessible by our employees and service providers (processors). We work with the database platforms and any service providers to ensure your data are protected.
VillageReach will never sell or share your personal data with third parties.
VillageReach collects additional information on individuals who apply for jobs or make donations online. The additional privacy considerations and use of this information can be found on the specific platforms used for recruiting and donation processing. VillageReach does not collect, process or store credit card information – all credit card transactions are processed through a third-party vendor, Network for Good.
VillageReach partners with Network for Good to securely process your online credit card payment via Network for Good (tax ID 68-0480736). Online donations are subject to Network for Good’s Privacy, Security & Disclosure Statement.
VillageReach may use your personal data in the following ways:
- To send information on VillageReach and its programs through our newsletter and email;
- To send invitations to VillageReach-related events;
- To acknowledge and solicit donations and provide tax information as necessary;
- To create and manage user profiles;
- To conduct standard business communication with our partners, vendors, and other parties;
- To comply with our legal and contractual obligations;
- To improve our website and digital communications.
Additional purposes may be described in supplemental privacy notices tied to specific use cases.
The transmission of data online is never completely secure, and we cannot guarantee the total security of your information. We maintain appropriate technical and organizational measures to prevent the unauthorized use, access, and sharing of your personal data. We expect our service providers to adhere to strict data protection policies, and limit access to personal data within the organization.
