Privacy Policy
This Privacy Policy was published on June 26, 2018.
Your privacy is important to us. Our Privacy Policy is designed to assist you in understanding how we collect and use the personal information you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our site and our products and services. We will not use or share your information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy does not apply to information we collect by other means (including offline) or from other sources.

What Information Do We Collect?
When you visit our Web site you may choose to provide us with personal information.

Credit Card Information:
Cleaninternational.org is thankful for the contributions you make that allow us to continue our valuable work. It is very important to us that your personal information remains secure. When you donate to CLEAN International online, your credit card information is processed by our partner MobileCause, guarded by 100% PCI compliant systems (Norton Secured). Also, your credit card number is used only for that particular transaction, unless you choose recurring donation, and is not stored. You will see the “closed” lock symbol in the lower part of your browser screen (often times it is yellow as well) when you are on our secure donation pages. You will also notice in your website address bar that the domain name starts with an “https” on those donation pages. This means that information entered on those pages is encrypted for your security. If you have any questions regarding the security of your credit card donation online, please contact us.

Registration Information:
You are not required to provide any personal information on our website unless you choose to do so. We do ask for personal information on our online donation pages to properly enable donation transaction processing. When you donate to CLEAN International online, you will provide us information about yourself, your firm or company, and your practices when you donate, you may choose to register for certain services, or register for our “Untapped” email newsletters and alerts. When you choose to participate in various fundraising or awareness campaigns of CLEAN International, we may request additional information including, but not limited to, your name, photograph, contact information, and narratives authored by you. By choosing to provide any of this information, you are explicitly granting CLEAN International permission to use any provided information for public use, posting, and consumption. If you have any questions regarding the security of your registration information, please contact us.

Email Information:
If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. Our website does not automatically recognize your e-mail address. We ask for your e-mail address on a number of pages within our site, but you may opt out of e-mail communications at any time by un-checking the box beneath where you entered in your e-mail address, or by clicking the unsubscribe link that is included at the bottom of every e-mail communication from CLEAN International. You may also contact us to be removed.
How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?

Broadly speaking, we use personal information for purposes of administering and expanding our service and charitable activities, providing donor services and making available other products and services to our donors and prospective donors. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our Web site, information, news concerning our work and development programs, and special donation opportunities and offers we think you will find valuable. You may contact us at any time if you do not wish to receive these e-mails to be removed.

Sharing Information with Third Parties:

We do ask for personal information on our online donation pages to properly enable donation transaction processing. We use this information to acknowledge receipt of your donation for tax purposes and may publicly acknowledge your gift on CLEAN International and/or other web services. If you give a gift to CLEAN International, your name and address will be placed on our physical mailing list. If you do not wish to receive physical mail from CLEAN International you may contact us to be removed.
