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.

This policy applies to all information received by Global Heritage Fund on any platform Global Heritage Fund controls as well as any electronic, written, or oral communications. “Platform” includes but is not limited to the Global Heritage Fund website and social media channels

Donations

We request certain information from you on our online and offline donation forms in order to process your donation. To donate to us, you must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date, etc.). This information is used for billing purposes and to process your donations only. Global Heritage Fund will not share or sell a donor’s personal information to any other entity, nor will Global Heritage Fund send our donors communications in any form on behalf of other organizations.

Online Registration

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 materials electronically. All online event registration and newsletter signups is transmitted via third-party applications to Global Heritage Fund’s database using 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; and soliciting donations. Global Heritage Fund will not share or sell a registrant’s personal information to any other entity, nor will Global Heritage Fund send our registrants communications in any form on behalf of other organizations.

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.

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.)
