Personal data collection
LWB collects personal data in a lawful and fair manner. No personal data other than what is necessary is requested. Personal data we collect when you donate to, support, or volunteer for LWB includes your name, postal address, telephone number, and email address. In more limited circumstances, we also may collect:
- Data about family members and companions, such as names of your children or name of spouse if shared with LWB
- When applying to volunteer with LWB, we collect information you provide to us on program interest, skills, native language, and similar questions used for volunteer placement. When hired, we request and store your date of birth and often a personal or family photograph
How we collect data
We collect personal data primarily through our online website when a donation is made, when a volunteer application is submitted, or when you sign up to receive our newsletter.
Use of personal data
We use personal data to provide you with donation receipts, reports on how your funding is used, and updates on new projects. We also use data for our once-a-year annual campaign postal mailing, which is only sent to donors in the United States.
Disclosure of personal data
LWB takes supporter and volunteer privacy very seriously. We will not sell or trade personal information, whether received online or in any other manner, to any other entity without prior written approval.
Personal data is shared with third-party service providers for the purpose of donation payment processing through companies such as Authorize.net, Paypal, Apple Pay, and Google Pay, all of which process transactions at the highest security standards. LWB does not store credit card information on our servers. Personal data may be shared during our annual financial audit. For US supporters, personal data is used to mail our annual campaign.
We will disclose personal data to comply with legal process, respond to requests from government authorities, including authorities outside your country of residence, and meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
We use strict organizational measures to protect personal data, along with technical measures that include a comprehensive set of compliance certifications and attestations under the EU-US privacy framework. If we would ever have a reason to believe data was compromised, we would notify our supporters within 72 hours as required by law.
Right to information
You have the right to request and receive detailed information on what data we have on you personally, where that data is stored, and how it is utilized. You have the right to ask us to delete all information we have on you personally (“data erasure”) and can revoke the consent you gave previously to us for news and information.
Please email us if you no longer wish to receive communications from LWB.
