Privacy Policy

OUR COMMITMENT TO PRIVACY

Global Celebration knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate you trusting that we will do so carefully and sensibly. To better protect your privacy, we provide this Privacy Policy explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used on this website. The information below explains our policy regarding your privacy and the www.globalcelebration.com website. By visiting www.globalcelebration.com, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.

The identity of all who contact us through this website is kept confidential: we do not rent, sell, or exchange our mailing lists.

WHAT PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION IS COLLECTED ON THIS SITE?

When you visit our website, you may provide us with personal information (such as name, address, e-mail address, telephone numbers and/or credit/debit card information) that you knowingly choose to disclose, which is collected on an individual basis for various purposes. You may always “opt out,” either now or at any time in the future, if you do not wish to receive our messages.

Global Celebration does not collect personal information from you unless you provide it to us. If you choose not to provide any of that information, we may not be able to fulfill your request, but you will still be free to browse the other sections of the websites owned and administered by us. This means that you can visit our site without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself.

THE WAY WE USE INFORMATION

We use your personal information to provide you with personalized service; to send e-mail alerts to you; to answer your requests; to process your application or send you resources, etc. You may choose to opt out at any time, which will cease all communications from us. We may also use your information to track visitor of our website. This lets us see which of our features are the most popular so we can better serve our users’ needs. It also lets us provide aggregate data about our traffic (not identifying you personally, but showing how many visitors used which features, for example).

Global Celebration does not sell, rent, give-away or share its e-mail addresses or other information with outside sources.

DONORS

In the case of donors, we collect personal information in order to properly identify you for our tax and accounting records, to provide you with information about the use of donated funds, to inform you about future and related fund-raising initiatives and to inform you about the needs of our organization. We respect your right to privacy and rights as a donor. We share your personally identifiable information with third parties where you authorize us to share it, or if sharing the information is necessary to process a donation (for example, to process a credit card transaction) or as required or permitted by law. Global Celebration does not exchange or trade in any way the names of donors participating in campaigns, unless specifically authorized by the relevant individual.

OUR COMMITMENT TO DATA SECURITY

Personally identifiable information is stored on our server. It is kept confidential and secure and is not accessible to the public. Additionally, sensitive data such as credit card numbers are encrypted using SSL and other industry standard measures, to provide an additional level of security.

CHOICE/OPT-OUT

If you have registered to receive e-mail communications from us and later change your mind, you may contact us to have your name removed from our distribution lists. You have the following options to do this:

You can send an e-mail with “UNSUBSCRIBE” in the subject line to: [email protected] or you can call us at: (717) 395-9710

WHAT ANONYMOUS INFORMATION IS COLLECTED ON THIS SITE?
