Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Statement

Project Lighthouse Africa believes you have a fundamental right to privacy on the web, and we work to protect your security online.

This policy applies to all the pages hosted by Project Lighthouse Africa on prolightafrica.org. It does not apply to pages hosted by other organisations.

We do not collect personally identifiable information on our web site unless you voluntarily choose to give it to us via this website, email, a phone call, by signing up as a supporter, or by postal mail. If you provide information as part of an online petition or message to a government, corporation, organisation, or individual, that information may be transmitted to the recipient of the appeal, and you may receive an email response directly from the recipient.

We do not sell or rent web-generated mailing lists or other personally identifiable information outside Project Lighthouse Africa. However, we may share lists amongst national or regional Project Lighthouse Africa offices to effectively inform and activate specific national audiences or other audience segments, in order to win campaigns and help raise money to fund our activities.

If you sign up to one of our mailing lists, we will email you updates about the actions you take on this website, and other Project Lighthouse Africa appeals and information. If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from our email list, you can do so by clicking the “unsubscribe” link which appears at the bottom of all emails we send via our lists.

We maintain some records of individuals who contact us for further information or for help in case we need to contact them later or provide further information to them in the future. However, we do not provide this information to anyone else unless you give us your permission, and we do not use this information for other purposes.

Our statistics software collects information about the date and time in which our web site was accessed, and we may also track a user’s movement within the site. We use this data to improve our site performance and to evaluate traffic statistics, such as the times of day and days of week at which we see peak traffic, and to assess the relative popularity of different areas of the site.

A cookie is a tiny element of data that our site can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your hard drive. Our web site uses cookies to customise certain options and to make it easier for registered users to comment and complete online action forms without re-entering data, and to improve the experience of regular visitors. You may set your web browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, or to disable cookies altogether.

You have the right to know what information we maintain about you, and to correct it in case of error. If you have any questions about the information we maintain about you or your supporter details please contact duchscherer@prolightafrica.org.

By signing up as a subscriber or donor, you accept this privacy policy and authorize Project Lighthouse Africa to collect, store and process your information in the ways mentioned above and for the purposes you submitted it.
