Privacy Policy

Every Village is committed to financial integrity and stewardship. We are committed to maintaining the trust of our donors, ensuring the privacy of your personal information.

Information we collect

There are four ways in which we collect information from visitors on our website:

  • From persons interested in requesting information from us

  • From our online donations

  • From Google Analytics

  • From online forms users complete

The online information that we collect includes name, address, city, state, zip code, telephone number, email address, and, in the case of online giving, credit card number and expiration date. In order to continuously improve your service and tailor our subsequent communications to you, we may also ask you to provide us with additional information regarding your demographics, comments, professional interests, contact preferences, and other information associated with you.

This website uses Google Analytics to help analyze how users use the site. The tool uses "cookies," which are text files placed on your computer, to collect standard Internet log information and visitor behavior information in an anonymous form. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including IP address) is transmitted to Google. This information is then used to evaluate visitors' use of the website and to compile statistical reports on website activity for Every Village.

We will never (and will not allow any third party to) use the statistical analytics tool to track or to collect any Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of visitors to our site. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Neither we nor Google will link, or seek to link, an IP address with the identity of a computer user. We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any Personally Identifiable Information from any source, unless you explicitly submit that information via a fill-in form on our website.

You may choose to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically default to accept them, but you can modify your browser settings to decline cookies. If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings, be aware that this may disable some of the functionality on our website.

How the information is used

Every Village uses your information to understand your needs and provide you with better service. We may use your information to complete a transaction, issue you an income tax receipt for a donation, or to personalize our website for you. If you agree to be contacted, we may also use this information to update you on ministry projects and activities. Credit card numbers are used only for donation or payment processing and are not retained for any other purposes.

No sharing of personal information

Every Village never sells, rents, leases, or exchanges your personal information with other organizations or groups. The identity of all who contact us through this site are kept confidential. Use of personal information will be limited to the internal purposes of Every Village and only to further our ministry activities and purposes.

Security

Every Village is committed to ensuring the security of your personal information. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the proper use of information, we have established and implemented appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

How you can access or correct your information

If you created an account with us online, you can access all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by logging into your account at www.everyvillage.org/account. While logged into your account, you can change your personal information as well as update your payment method. If you submitted a donation online without creating an account, you will need to contact us for access. We use this procedure to better safeguard your information.

You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that credibly shows error.

To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
