Our commitment to privacy
Global Disciples Canada 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. We store any personal data given to us as securely as possible, and NEVER sell, rent, give or otherwise provide that personal data (including e-mail address) to anyone outside of our organization.
What information is collected by Global Disciples Canada?
We collect personal information when you voluntarily submit it to us.
For example, donors provide us with personal information (such as name, address, email address, telephone numbers and/or credit/debit card information). If a donor, or a website visitor, contacts us by email they provide us with their email address, and name. Providing data is required in these contexts in order for us to process your donations, requests, or respond to inquiries.
In addition to the personal information that you submit to us, we may collect personal information about you from reputable third parties, or automatically collect information using the following technologies:
Web Server Logs. Our web servers may collect certain information such as IP address, pages visited, time of visits, and referring website.
Where do we transfer and store information?
Global Disciples Canada is based in Canada, and any information transmitted to us will be stored, accessed, or processed in Canada.
How do we use information?
We collect information primarily to accept donations, complete our charitable projects, and provide you with information concerning our programs, projects, and activities. We also use information for internal purposes and for analytical purposes (to respond to requests for information and to improve our website, donor base, and outreach). We will inform you of other purposes at the time that we collect some forms of information. For example, if you apply for a job with Global Disciples Canada we may collect information in order to process your job application.
With whom do we share information?
We do NOT trade, share, or sell information that you provide to us with other organizations.
We would only share your information, for example, in conjunction with your sponsorship of a certain project, as required by law, with law enforcement, to comply with legal processes, to protect our legal rights, to protect the safety or security of a person, or to protect against fraud, criminal acts, or misconduct. We may also share your information with companies that provide us with services, or with a successor legal entity.

To help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the correct use of information, we have in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. We also use industry accepted tools and techniques such as SSL and two-factor authentication to protect against unauthorized access to our systems. Additionally, all sensitive information is stored in secure repositories both in-house as well as secure cloud-based, AES encrypted web apps.
