Privacy Policy

Global Heritage Fund (GHF) values its visitors, volunteers, donors, private citizens and other website visitors and places a high priority on conducting business honestly while protecting your privacy. Because we respect your confidentiality, we have created this privacy policy in order to outline what data we collect from you, how we use it, and how it is shared.


In order to receive GHF’s communications, individuals must voluntarily provide us with contact information (such as a name and e-mail address) and the permission to send them materias electronically. All online event registration and newsletter signups is transmitted via third-party applications that utilize encryption technology.

We may use this information for specific, limited purposes, such as sending you newsletters; informing you of updates in our projects and programs; soliciting donations; etc. You may always “opt out,” either now or at any time in the future, if you do not wish to receive our messages. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website:

  • See what data we have about you, if any.
  • Change/correct any data we have about you.
  • Have us delete any data we have about you.
  • Express any concern you have about our use of your data.


We request information from you on our donation form, which is processed through Classy, a third-party donation platform. To donate to us, you must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we’ll use this information to contact you.

How Your Information May Be Used

We use your personal information to provide you with e-mail newsletters; to send e-mail alerts to you regarding our work and other activities; to answer your queries; to collect data regarding website traffic (e.g. analytics); etc.

Record Retention

We keep your personal information as accurate, complete, and up to date as is required to fulfill the purpose(s) for which you provided us with your personal information. Upon request in writing we will remove your personal information from our databases, except where legislation or regulation requires our retention of it (for example, charitable giving history tied to income tax receipts.)


We may update this privacy policy from time to time, so please review it periodically.
