Do you share my personal information? Courage Worldwide is committed to protecting the privacy of our donors and online store customers. We do not sell or rent your information to other individuals or organizations. We assure you that the identity of all our donors and online store customers will be kept confidential. Use of donor or online store customer information will be limited to the internal purposes of Courage Worldwide and only to further the mission, purpose, and ministry activities Courage Worldwide. The only exception is when we are required by law to disclose such information.

How do you protect my personal information? The Courage Worldwide website uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where personal information is required. To make purchases from the website, you must use an SSL-enabled browser such as Safari, Firefox, Netscape Navigator 3.0 or later, or Internet Explorer 6.0 or later. Doing so protects the confidentiality of your personal and credit card information while it is transmitted over the Internet.

We encourage you to take precautions to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often using a combination of letters and numbers and make sure you use a secure web browser.

Do you use other data collection technologies? As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Courage Worldwide will not use the information collected for direct marketing.

In some of our email messages, we use a "click-through URL" linked to content on the Courage Worldwide website. When a customer clicks one of these URLs, they pass through our email service’s web server before arriving at the destination web page. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications.

In addition, we use analytics to tell us what parts of our website customers have visited or to measure the effectiveness of searches customers perform on our site.

Do you have a ministry-wide commitment to information privacy? To ensure the protection of your personal information, we communicate the above guidelines to all Courage Worldwide employees and strictly enforce privacy safeguards within the ministry. In addition, Courage Worldwide supports industry initiatives, such as the Online Privacy Alliance and TRUSTe, to preserve privacy rights on the Internet and in all aspects of electronic commerce. We do not knowingly solicit personal information from minors or send them requests for personal information.

Courage Worldwide's website has links to the sites of other companies. We encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies, as we are not responsible for their privacy practices.

How do I opt out? If you do not want Courage Worldwide to contact you regarding current news, events, or our latest products, please email admin@courageworldwide.org and request to be removed from any or all distribution lists.

What if I have additional questions? If you have questions or concerns about our Privacy Policy or data processing, please contact us.
