PRIVACY POLICY

When you entrust your personal information to a website, you expect the operators of that site to demonstrate that they have earned your trust. Maintaining your privacy and the security of your personal information is our highest priority.

At the Russian American Children’s Foundation (RACF), your right to privacy and data security is a primary concern. When you visit https://racfmiracles.org or go.racfmiracles.org or news.racfmiracle.org, which are subdomains of racfmiracles.org, we help you maintain control over your personal data on the Internet by adhering to our established privacy guidelines. RACF is committed to following all relevant federal and state laws regarding your personal information and how it is protected.

Privacy Policy

RACF created this Privacy Statement to demonstrate respect for your privacy preferences and to disclose our information collection and sharing practices. Regardless of whether you provide us with your personal information via our website or in another manner (e.g. telephone, regular mail or face-to-face), we strive to honor your privacy preferences.

BY ACCESSING AND/OR USING THE WEBSITE, YOU HAVE AGREED TO

1) abide by the practices described in this Privacy Statement, as may be amended from time to time, and

2) the transfer, processing and maintenance of your personal and sensitive information in the United States of America.

THE PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT: Depending on the type of communication or transaction, the personal information we collect may include, but is not limited to, your name, postal address, zip code, country, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card, bank information or payment information.

WHERE AND WHEN WE COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION: You will be asked to provide your personal information when making donations, requesting communications, applying for a job or volunteer position with RACF and/or in connection with other RACF business (whether it is via the website, e-mail, direct mail or telephone communications).

WE DO NOT KNOWINGLY COLLECT INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN: We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 18 or knowingly allow such persons to provide us with their personal information. If you are under 18, do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address. In the event we learn that we collected personal information from anyone under the age of 18, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about anyone under the age of 18, please contact us at info@rusfondusa.org or call us Monday through Thursday, 9:00AM - 5:00PM Eastern Time at +1.212.920.5746.

RACF MAY SHARE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION: Personal information will be shared internally at RACF to complete your donations, to contact you about our on-going work, discuss employment or volunteer opportunities and ways that you can further support efforts to help children in need. Your personal information will also be used to provide you access to the various sections of our websites, if any, that have been personalized for your needs. RACF may share only donor names and postal addresses with third parties, for example with a mailing house. Except in the limited circumstances outlined below, RACF will never intentionally share your e-mail addresses, phone numbers or financial information.

EXCEPTIONS: RACF reserves the right to share your personal information in certain situations: Credit Card Transactions, Electronic Fund Transfers, Payments by Check or Money Order and On-line Transactions. RACF hires third parties to provide credit card, bank, payment and information processing services and order fulfillment services. If you choose to make an application for employment, make a donation on-line, by phone, through the mail or by other means, we will share your personal information with our processing service providers. We make an effort to require all third party service-providers to hold personal information in strict confidence. While we believe these other companies are upstanding and will treat your personal information responsibly, we do not own or control them and cannot guarantee your privacy.

Necessity. If we have reason to believe that there has been some inappropriate interference with or use of our websites, communications, charitable services or personal or real property (for example, see the Terms of Use), or if we have reason to believe that one of the RACF website users, donors, employees, volunteers or other related parties may have been injured or may have harmed some other party, we will disclose, without notice to you, personal information as we deem appropriate or if compelled by a legal or regulatory authority.

Merger, Acquisition or other Corporate Restructure. We also may transfer your personal information to a third party successor in interest if we are involved in an acquisition, merger or other transfer of control or sale of assets.

YOU MAY ALWAYS CHANGE YOUR PRIVACY PREFERENCES BY CONTACTING US: If you would like to change your privacy preferences, please e-mail us at admin@racfmiracles.org; call us Monday through Thursday, 9:00AM -5:00PM Eastern Time at 1.212.920.5746.

COOKIES: A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyze web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyze data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to donor needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

WEBSITE LINKS: In order to provide certain services and goods at our website, we contract with other companies and individuals. These additional services and goods may include "links" to other websites from our website. RACF’s privacy practices may not be applicable at any third-party sites. Anytime you leave the RACF website, we have no control regarding what information may be collected about you, nor do we control what third-parties might do with the information. For example, when you click on a PayPal link at the RACF site, you will be connected with the third-party website. This third-party website should have its own privacy statement applying to transactions at their website. It is important that you review any privacy policies on third-party sites carefully, BEFORE you use any services or programs offered.

CHANGES TO PRIVACY PRACTICES: From time to time, RACF may revise its privacy practices to address changing technology, security measures and website functionality. We strive to provide you with timely notice of these changes. Please contact us if you have any questions about changes to our practices.
