Ujima for Children International Foundation Web Privacy Policy

Ujima respects your privacy. Therefore we do not rent, sell, or exchange our mailing lists.

What does this mean?

We value your trust and are committed to managing your information responsibly, doing all business candidly, and fundraising in the most cost-effective way possible.

If you have questions or concerns, please email us at marketing@ujima.org.

Ujima for Children International Foundation seeks to create a world in which all children have access to resources that allow them to reach their full potential, and we promise to put every dollar you donate toward this purpose. While we will make every effort to honor any designation or preference you have stated, in certain circumstances (where a project is overfunded or cannot be carried out in accordance with your preference), the funds will be used for similar projects that support the mission.

As with most other Internet sites, our web servers utilize “cookies” to track a user’s activity within our site as well as record the IP address of each visitor to this site. A cookie is a small data file that is stored on your computer. A cookie contains a unique identifying feature that allows our computer to recognize you when you return to Ujima’s site. The recorded IP address tells us which domain you visited from (for instance, yahoo.com), but not your email address or other private and personal information. We use the information we record to help diagnose problems with our servers, to administer this website more effectively, and to gather broad demographic information about what countries and domains our visitors come from and their behavior on our site.

In some cases, our site uses securely encrypted contribution response forms for visitors who choose to use these forms to provide information, request information, and make donations. We collect the contact information you submit willingly (such as your email address), unique identifiers, and financial information (such as a credit card type, number, and expiration date). Contact information from these response forms is used to process donations, as well as to provide receipts and other information about Ujima to our customers. The visitor’s contact information is also used to get in touch with the visitor when necessary in order to resolve customer service issues or questions. Users may readily opt out of receiving future communications; see the “Opt Out” and “Modifying Your Information” sections below. Financial information that is collected is used to bill the user for donations pledged. Unique identifiers (such as an Ujima account number) may be collected from website visitors to assist in matching current donation information with donor history in our record systems.

Those who choose to register on our site may choose to give us certain contact information (such as their email address). These features may also request optional demographic information (such as zip code, age, or income level). Unless you opt out, we may use this contact information to send you additional information about Ujima and its programs. Your voluntarily provided contact information may also be used to contact you when necessary in order to resolve customer service issues or questions. You may readily opt out of receiving future communications; see the “Opt Out” and “Modifying Your Information” sections below.

In the event that we post online surveys, we may ask visitors for contact information (such as their email address) as well as a variety of demographic and practical questions. We may use contact data from our surveys to send the user information about Ujima. The user’s contact information may also be used to contact the visitor when necessary. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the “opt out” and “modifying your information” sections below.

Opt Out

Most points on our site provide users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us at the point where we request contact information about the visitor. There are, however, a few places where users do not have the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications. Should you wish to opt-out, please contact us and we will unsubscribe you from receiving further communications from us.

Users may also opt-out at any time by contacting us following the methods provided in the “Modifying Your Information” section below.
